‘We’ve Got NFL By the Balls’
… You Jacked Our Slogan!
Saturdays are for the boys … if you ask Barstool Sports.
Sundays are for the boys … if you ask the NFL.
And Tuesdays are for legal threats … because Barstool is now declaring war on the NFL for allegedly jacking their trademark slogan.
Here’s the deal … Barstool (the super popular sports blog) has been selling “SAFTB” gear for years. In fact, BS President Dave Portnoy tells TMZ Sports they have a trademark on the slogan.
So, Portnoy and his Barstool team were shocked when they saw the NFL selling “Sundays Are For The Boys” shirts on the NFLShop.com website … the official online store of the NFL.
Portnoy — who considers NFL Commish Roger Goodell a “sworn enemy” — tells us he’s already gearing up to file a lawsuit unless the NFL pulls the shirts from the shop immediately.
El Presidente says the league stepped into a “bear trap” and it should be no-brainer for the league to wave the white flag because “we got ’em by the balls.”
We reached out to the NFL for comment — so far, no word back.
