John Elway … Consider the name … Consider the 1998 Super Bowl. Remember how it felt, Packers fans.
Needless to say, I don’t think there are many I Packers nation who think kindly of the man.
I think even less of him this week … After Elway found out recently that a Fort Collins, Colo., punk rock band had used his last name as their moniker Elway didn’t like that and told his attorney to contact the band’s management and suggest they change the name.
Wait a minute, hold the Broncos!
First of all, does Elway really think he is the only person on the planet who uses that surname? What gives him the right to proclaim domain over the name?
How can he be so arrogant, first of all to claim a trademark on his name and second, who does he think he is that a group of free-wheelin’ rock and rollers are going to listen to him?
My guess is that they told him to take a mile-high hike and gave their own version of the one-fingered mile high salute.
At least that’s I’m hoping was the case.
I can’t imagine that the Broncos don’t have more issues with which to contend. Shouldn’t they be worrying about how to solidify their defensive backfield and stopping Philip Rivers twice each season. Shouldn’t they be more worried about filling their quarterback position more so than who is using the Elway surname?
In fact, if John is so worried about somebody cashing in on his name, maybe he should consult with the more than 1,600 individuals who popped up in a simple Google search … I wonder what they would think of his huge concern that a rock band was using their name … Heck, they might even be honored.
It’s all just a bit ridiculous, Mr. Elway.
I think it’s time you moved on with your life, started thinking about how best to utilize Tim Tebow and stop worrying about whether a rock band has the same name as yours.
We always knew you were the biggest whiner in the league and this latest outburst only proves you are an arrogant idiot.
