That's all they got...a frivolous lawsuit. The Seahawks do not have anything that says "The 12th Man." We retired a #12 Fan jersey in 1984 and fly a flag with the number 12 on it. Texas A&M will lose. Plus, they only trademarked it for "namely organizing and conducting intercollegiate sporting events," and products, such as caps, T-shirts, novelty buttons and jewelry. The Seahawks is not a college and they do not print anything with the words "The 12th Man."
I was referring to the nickname, "The Birds." Don't get me wrong, as I do feel that taking it to legal matters is ridiculous over something such as a sports slogan, but I was just merely pointing out the fact that Seattle doesn't seem to come up with their own ideas.
