    I don't care either way but I understand the Mets fans issue with what TB12 is trying to do here.

    Looks like Tom Terrific finally found a way to stick it to NY Giants fans! (the Jetes he's been sticking it to for years...)

    It’s upsetting Jete fans since they are the same as Mets fans. If you are from Queens/Long Island, it’s pretty much Mets/Jets.

    Can't say I am a fan of the Tom Terrific nickname ... but it's not my call.

    I would like something with a bit more meat to it ...

    Honestly, I don’t know any Pats fan who calls him “Tom Terrific.” I prefer to call him the GOAT. :cool:

    If my name were Norman, I might go by a nickname, too.

    Sometimes players do this to stop other people from using the name in merchandising, but not necessarily because they want to use it themselves.

    In all honesty, if that's what he wants then shouldn't he be known as Tom the most Terrific of all Time instead of just...Terrific.

    Seaver should’ve filed if it was that important to him.

    Seeing how he has health issues now I suspect he doesn't care.

    I've heard him called Tom Terrific, but it seems to me it was earlier in his career, before he became the GOAT.

    Seaver might have a claim even if he didn't register the mark, so the WEEI comment is way off base. . But Seaver is probably not using "Tom Terrific" in commerce, nor does it seems that he intends to use that mark in commerce. Nor is it likely that any consumer of TB's products or services would be confused between TB's use of the mark and Tom Seaver.

    All of this is something that TB's trademark lawyers would have considered and then checked in federal, state and common law trademark searches before they filed the two trademark applications. Then they'd advise Brady, probably in writing.

    In short, this is just nonsense form a legal standpoint.

    His Pro Football Reference page has had Tom Terrific as one of his nicknames for at least 5 years
