When can we use the phrase “Super Bowl”? And other Super Legalities you should be aware of


By web gangsta | Published:

One question that Web Watch hears a lot from our friends is “Why do some businesses use the term THE BIG GAME or PIGSKIN PARTY, while others use the term SUPER BOWL in their promotional material?” We’ve noticed this ourselves, and are often amused at the lengths some companies go to in associating themselves as being a part of the Professional Football Championship Game without actually mentioning any of the NFL’s trademarks.

Take the following as helpful suggestions, but if you are planning on using any of the NFL’s trademarks yourself – you may want to check with your own legal department and/or followup with the NFL themselves for your own DOs and DONTs list.

Sports fans are a finicky bunch.

When a player does really well and wins for their team, those players can do nothing wrong.

When a player does something that loses The Big Game, those players can have a black mark on them that will follow them for the rest of their lives. 

We all remember the superstars fondly, and wear their jerseys proudly.  The goats?  Not so much. Continue reading MICHAEL VICK IS THE MOST HATED PLAYER IN THE NFL
