Tom Brady seeks to trademark “Tompa Bay” and “Tampa Brady”

AP

Tom Brady filed paperwork seeking to trademark “TB x TB” shortly after signing with the Buccaneers. The quarterback now seeks two other trademarks.

Chuck Schilken of the Los Angeles Times reports that Brady also wants protection for “Tompa Bay” and “Tampa Brady,” having filed trademarks for those phrases earlier this week.

The Dan Patrick Show came up with both (bad) puns, with Patrick and his co-hosts mentioning them on the air after Brady signed with the Bucs. Patrick is selling T-shirts featuring “Tompa Bay” on his website, which probably explains why Brady wants to trademark the phrases to be used on clothing, headgear and footwear.

“We were doing mock headlines of Brady going there, and then we joked that it was so easy,” Patrick said, via Schilken. “We threw out ‘Tompa Bay’ right away and then ‘Tampa Brady,’ and then I go, ‘Let’s make T-shirts.’”

Two others applied to trademark “Tompa Bay” before Brady, according to Schilken.

Brady’s bid to trademark “Tom Terrific” was rejected last August. Brady claimed he didn’t intend to use the phrase for marketing purposes but because he wanted to prevent others from using it in association with his name.

After ESPN wrote a story about Brady’s attempts to trademark “Tompa Bay” and “Tampa Brady” on Friday, Brady subtweeted, “I never understood why Drew [Brees] wasn’t making Drew Orleans shirts. . .”

  1. “Tompa Bay” is just awful. Worth getting the trademark just to keep anybody from selling shirts.

    ——————————————————————————-

    Because he’s not a toolbag.

  3. Wow, now he can cheat at football and now he can steal stupid puns. Oh, and he doesn’t see race, but doesn’t acknowledge that other people do. What a standup guy. It’s not his fault, he sounds like the average idiot that is good at playing football.

  4. Honestly, this is representative as to why BB walked.

    The bottom line is, the real Tom Brady disappeared in NE last year foe good, even though this was slowly building, and these kinds of obsessive, personalized or selfish business motives are now some odd priority for him.

    The Brady fanboys still don’t see it.

  5. Sounds like Kirk Cousins has been coaching him up on the dork.

    “You vike that”

  6. Ok, I am not a Tom Brady hater nor a Tom Brady fan, but this is the kind of thing that pushes me just a bit closer to wanting him to fail in Tampa.

  7. Sounds like he’s looking for the name of his used car dealership in Tampa, #retirementplans

  8. Good business sense. Make money long term simply by filing a brief court document and watch the PFT commenters cry that he’e being mean.

  9. So that’s why TB wanted to go to TB. I knew it! TBNE doesn’t quite cut it. (Tom Brady New England, in case you’re wondering).

  10. I hate to break the news to Tampa fans but I dont see Tom making it past 4 games as a Buccaneer. Winston was always running for his life,Toms old,and Tom wont get any real time practicing with his new teammates because of the pandemic. Just a reality check for everyone. BB has him walking the plank.

  11. Skip Bayless has become unlistenable during the lock-in.

    Now, insofar as Brady is concerned: one-and-done.

  12. Hey Tompa, after you flame out in Tampa, YOU will have pay people everytime they say TB xTB.

  13. In other news, another player files to trademark Todd “Pay Me” Gurley.

  14. What an epic toolbag. He is the biggest fraud in the history of sports. Here are a few phrases that should be patented: “As fake as his hair plugs’ is a good one. How about “The Lance Armstrong of football” , now that is unbeatable right there. How about ” Deflator in witness protection” . How about Cell Phone destroyer Tommy. Tommy Asterisks , just like Joe exotic, Tom and Bill’s Asterisk adventures, The possibilities are endless.

  15. Yes, these slogans are definitely as pathetic and weak as Kirk Cousins’ money grab move to corner the, “You Vike That!”, market.
    Brady has definitely crossed over into the cringeworthy doofus of the NFL.

  16. The Patriots are like a cult. When players finally leave there, they remind me of a dog running around the yard crazily after being chained to the fence for 2 weeks.
    It’s quite obvious that players are miserable while playing in NE.

  17. Since he’s moved to sunny Florida, I hear he’s got a new health drink – “DermaWater”. Guaranteed to prevent skin cancer.

    Winston was buying time to try and figure out what was going on. Brady just gets rid of the ball until a play is needed on 3rd down or the game is on the line. With the weapons he has and maybe a little help on the line I think he will be just fine. The defense is automatically better off not having to defend short fields and extra possessions every game. Tampa can easily contend

  21. “Tompa Bay”?
    “Tampa Brady”?

    That has to be just about the silliest thing I’ve ever heard.

  22. I don’t think many people read the article.

    Tom is trying to keep people from profiting off his name.

    It’s not like he’s trademarking them with the intent to use them, but keep them from being used. It’s not his fault they’re terrible.

  23. In honor of Joe Exotic, I will have to go with Tommy Asterisks the Asterisk King as the best trademark phrase. Please get this copyrighted and on a t shirt

  24. You can’t TM something that someone already said publicly, to millions of people. Maybe he’s just setting up his CTE claim. Get over yourself Tom.

  25. This further illustrates he is no longer 100% focused on football and the main reason Belichick let him walk. I would not be shocked at all if Tampa wins fewer games with Tom than they did with Winston.

    Yeah, all those rings and all…………………….

  27. You woulda thought he signed with the packers. The corn is seeping through his pores.

  28. Oh, and he doesn’t see race, but doesn’t acknowledge that other people do. What a standup guy.

    Wow what an evil guy 🙄

  29. I love Brady a lot as a football player, but he just needs to play football. His marketing of TB12 and now his trademarks are just annoying…

  30. If he thinks the Saints and the Falcons are going to roll over and play dead because he is in Tampa Bay, he may have a rude awakening. The NFC South won’t be the cupcake division he was iused to before, where he was almost guaranteed adivision championship and aBye” to the playoffs..
    Geaux Saints!

  31. Most of you clowns don’t get it. He’s not trademarking it to use it, he’s doing it so others, like Dan Patrick, can’t pedal such crap.

  32. You haters realize that the point of the trademark, like it says right there on the article, is to prevent others from making money off his name. Brady isn’t going to actually release “Tompa Bay” tshirts. If you didn’t know, those shirts are actually already online along with other stuff, he’s just trademarking it so people aren’t profiting off his name.

  33. How about “Block somedody, you idiot!” That will be Tom’s catchphrase in Tampa.

  34. What an idiot. Those sounds do not flow. Maybe Drew Orleans does, so I give him credit for that one.

    The reality has now set in for you and your Brady-less Pats, and now your Brady bashing has begun – it was pretty predictable. The Pats had a great run – an unprecedented run, but that run is now over.

    All empires eventually fall, and BB nor Stidham isn’t going to prevent that from happening in 2020. The Pats are done, especially with KC in the AFC likely to reign for many years to come.

    Grampa Brady is more applicable than Tompa Bay or Tampa Brady, IMO.

    So, what? There is something to be said about enjoying the work you do for many people. I would take that 1 ring in Philly vs the Tommy 6, if it meant my happiness. They were 8-0 and Brady was unhappy. What? No wonder Gronk couldn’t take another year of brainwashing.

    To each player’s ceiling, Brady was the worst player on the Patriots last year.

    His 2018 red zone compl% was 35% and I bet it was worse this year.

    You people are in for a very rude awakening next year and beyond if you think their qb play worsens next year or somehow falls off the map.

    Rude awakening.

  39. What about Tampa Tom?
    What about Trader Tom?
    What about Tommy Tom Tom Tampa Tom?

    Could this get any more ridiculous? This isn’t gonna mean much when Tampa Tom is 9-7 and loses in GB in the first round of the playoffs

    We’ll see when the season starts. I bet the Patriots won’t miss Tampa err I mean Tompa 🙄 Bay Tommy as much as we thought they would.

  41. What most people don’t get is that someone might try to profit off of those phrases. Individuals can see it as Brady preventing others from profiting off his presence, or they can see it as his greed. The bottom line is, he does have a brand and it is his.

    Its obvious that Brady has his happiness, his life has gone ok and he is clearly enjoying it. You need not continue laying awake at night worrying about Brady’s happiness, he is doing great. Also is terrific that you are happier not having the things and successes he does, that makes this situation a total win/win. A beautiful story all around.

  44. Hey Tom…how about you just sitting back and allow other people to tell you how great you are.

  45. I’m dying for football to start up again, but this man is the ONLY reason I have for hoping the NFL season gets cancelled.

  46. I can’t believe nobody has come up with “Tamper Bay” or “Tamper Brady” yet. Even if you don’t believe he did anything with Inflategate, it’s still funny.

  47. I hate to break the news to Tampa fans but I dont see Tom making it past 4 games as a Buccaneer. Winston was always running for his life,Toms old,and Tom wont get any real time practicing with his new teammates because of the pandemic. Just a reality check for everyone. BB has him walking the plank.

    ———————————————————————————-

    He won’t have to run. Over the last year or so he has excelled at throwing the ball away in less than 2 seconds. It will be interesting to see if he gets away with intentional grounding in TB as much as he did in NE.

  48. Honestly, this is representative as to why BB walked.

    The bottom line is, the real Tom Brady disappeared in NE last year foe good, even though this was slowly building, and these kinds of obsessive, personalized or selfish business motives are now some odd priority for him.

    We see your Brady envy. It’s very telling.

  49. Sometimes getting a trademark is just done to keep awful t-shirts off the streets in front on the stadium.

  50. To each player’s ceiling, Brady was the worst player on the Patriots last year.

    Another made up stat by you. I just did a simple research and pulled these stats out for Brady.

    Inside the 20

    2018 49-86 for 56.98% completion 18TD and 1INT

    2019 50-91 for 54.95 % completion 13TD and 2 INT

    How do you come up with your fictional stats? I am pulling directly from Pro Football Reference 2019 NFL Red Zone Passing Stats

  51. Come on,Tom. Get over yourself. You weren’t like this in NE…well,not until the tail end of your time here. Yes,you are the GOAT,but what happened to that great,humble guy we used to know?
