Great gravy but our IP system is screwy.

APRIL 21--Three months after their bid for an undefeated season ended with a Super Bowl loss to the New York Giants, the New England Patriots are continuing to pursue trademarks on the phrases "19-0" and "19-0 The Perfect Season," records show. While the team may have been expected to withdraw its applications after finishing at 18-1, a Patriots lawyer recently amended the original filings to correct a typographical error, a clear indication that the organization remains committed to securing the marks (perhaps Bill Belichick & Co. are anticipating perfection in the 2008 season).

I wonder if the phrase "I need to scratch my #####" has been trademarked? If not how much does it cost to file?

That's ok. We will beat them next year to put that whole 19-0 crap to a stop. 16-2 maybe..

Gawd, with their unbelievably easy schedule next season it's possible....

Why does the NFL have to do this?

It's not the NFL's fault NE plays in the AFC East.

The NFL schedule follows a very strict formula, it's not like the league just handpicks the games.
