Mets fans to hold rally protesting Tom Brady's pursuit of 'Tom Terrific' trademark

Mets fans to hold rally protesting Tom Brady's pursuit of 'Tom Terrific' trademark

Mets fans aren't going to let Tom Brady trademark "Tom Terrific" without a fight.

The Patriots quarterback recently sought to trademark the nickname, which has been associated with Hall-of-Fame Mets pitcher Tom Seaver since the 1960s. WFAN host and former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason expressed his displeasure with Brady on Tuesday, and his fellow New Yorkers are doing the same by protesting the six-time Super Bowl champion's pursuit of the trademark.

Per SNY:

Mets fans plan to gather at Upper East Side restaurant Sojourn on Tuesday at 5 p.m. for a 'Boston T.B.' Party, where they will dump jerseys and memorabilia of Brady into garbage bags filled with beans.

Also reportedly taking place at the rally will be Seaver's former Mets teammate, Art Shamsky, discussing Seaver's legacy while Mets fans "hold a press conference demanding Brady apologize to Seaver, his family and Mets fans everywhere."

There's still hope for Mets fans as Brady's trademark request hasn't officially been approved by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Regardless of whether the request is granted, New York fans have yet another reason to despise their longtime archnemesis.

Ex-Patriot Trent Brown denies domestic violence allegations in statement

Ex-Patriot Trent Brown denies domestic violence allegations in statement

Former Patriot and current Raiders offensive lineman Trent Brown was sued by his ex-girlfriend for domestic violence, and he responded to the allegations with a statement via Twitter on Wednesday.

“I am aware that my ex-girlfriend has filed a civil suit against me,” Brown tweeted. “I deny the claims. They are false. I believe in the court system where I will clear my name. I will not be making any further comment at this time.”

The disturbing acts Brown is being accused of allegedly took place over the spring and summer of this year. After helping the Patriots to their sixth Super Bowl title, the 26-year-old signed a four-year, $66 million deal with the Raiders in March.

The NFL is expected to investigate the civil allegations just as it investigated Antonio Brown's, according to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.

49ers RB Matt Breida on possible Super Bowl vs. Patriots: 'I like our chances'

49ers RB Matt Breida on possible Super Bowl vs. Patriots: 'I like our chances'

The New England Patriots (6-0) and San Francisco 49ers (5-0) are the only two undefeated teams remaining, so predictably there's already talk of a potential Super Bowl matchup between the two squads.

One thing is for certain: the 49ers aren't lacking confidence as they cruise into Week 7 of the 2019 season. Niners running back Matt Breida made that clear Tuesday night on NFL Total Access when asked how he'd feel about lining up against the defending champion Patriots in Super Bowl 54.

"I feel like I like our chances," Breida told Scott Hanson. We have a great team, great special teams, offense, defense, and everyone's playing at high energy right now. So we'll just have to wait and see."

Watch below:

Given how dominant the 49ers have looked up to this point, it's no surprise they feel they can go toe-to-toe with any team in the league. Like the Patriots, their defense has been spectacular ranking at or near the top in almost every major statistical category. Offensively, Breida and fellow RBs Tevin Coleman and Raheem Mostert have helped San Francisco establish one of the NFL's best rushing attacks.

Of course, with 10 weeks of regular-season football left on the schedule, it's still far too early to be looking ahead to February. But we have to admit, a Tom Brady vs. Jimmy Garoppolo Super Bowl matchup sounds pretty exciting.
