Honestly, it’s completely garbage. Reid is a great dude and does a ton for charity (and they have awesome gear, support them).  He helped create it And the Bills are trying to steal it from them.

 

i really hope there is more to this story because the Bills look like a greedy, scumbag organization right now.

Completely agree.  This is a bad look and must be the 2020 version of "drilling another well"

Just the logo.  Not the verbiage. 

Verbiage as well Hence their Second Filing I posted.

Steady on here, guys.  As I understand, they're trademarking that particular logo.

 

But if they are trying to trademark the whole term and go after anyone else using it....it is a really poor look

whole thing is odd.  Need a trademark attorney to explain.  Not a journalist.

There is two Filings.  One for the Specific Logo and the Other for the Term.

And this is why it is important. In the 90s they would Pay Texas A&M to license the use of the 12th Man.  

 

Now anyone wanting to use Bills Mafia would be subject to needing the same licensing agreement with the Bills.
