  • Tebow patents Tebowing

    Pathetic. . . .
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Surely many of Tim Tebow’s legion of followers have suggested the Jets’ backup quarterback’s patent Tebowing, his signature prayer.

    Apparently he's done exactly that, applying for and a trademark and being accepted by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office – although he actually seemed surprised when told Friday.

    “It did?” Tebow laughed. “I knew that this stuff that had been talked about, but I didn’t know everything had gone through.’’

          You know Bart Scott patented "Cant Wait" and Darrelle Revis patented "Revis Island". It's an image thing, don't want people just to use him to make money. It's more to do with his foundation. Good move as long as he doesn't make 1 cent for himself.

              It resolves the ambiguity in the cease and desist letters they had been sending out -- numerous articles of merchandise were flooding the market, and now it clears up any doubt about their right to shut it down.

              Of course, you can believe the worst. I suppose to some people, the concept of trademarking or profiting is horrible in their belief system.

              Or perhaps it's the concept that Tebow would engage in any merchandising or profiteering, and that's hypocritical. But then, he's been an endorser of merchandise from the very beginning, with products such as Jockey.

              Bah. Tebow makes people do such mental backflips. There's not a single thing wrong or hypocritical about this. Full stop.

                He's a self-absorbed money grabber that loves the spotlight.

                Been saying it for, what, 3 years?

                Nothings changed.

                      You didn't know about it, Tebow? That's funny, because a patent application requires the signatures of your representatives as well as yourself

                        I'd agree... if he had come up with the concept of Tebowing... He didn't so he shouldn't be able to patent it.

                          I'm more surprised it could actually be trademarked. Just trying to imagine someone in the government actually sitting down and thinking "Ya you know what, sitting on one knee and praying should be trademarked." Sigh.

                            From a Yahoo Sports blog (I don't want to post the link because of some of the comments):

                            Tebow: "I think one, more to control how it's used as well. Make sure it's used in the right way.''

                            From a marketing perspective, we suppose Tebow has a point. There's been a flood of Tebowing-related merchandise on the market, and his representatives sent letters of protest after two different companies -- Tebowing.com and TebowingGear.com -- filed patent requests last year. This doesn't seem to be an attempt to stop people from Tebowing if they so choose; more an effort to insure that if somebody wants to put that particular gesture on a T-shirt and sell it, the proceeds go to its "inventor."
                            The proceeds will probably go to charities. That's my guess.

                            Personally, I don't really care. I haven't Tebowed, I haven't bought or made any of that stuff, so it really doesn't bother me.
