Manziel suit claims trademark infringement
By GigEmNation staff
During Johnny Manziel's memorable 2012 season, the redshirt freshman quarterback saw his nickname, "Johnny Football," explode in popularity.
Now, the Texas A&M signal caller is doing what he can to protect the moniker.
Manziel's corporation, JMAN2 Enterprises, filed a lawsuit in Texas last week against a man selling T-shirts bearing the "Johnny Football" nickname, according to a story by ESPN's Darren Rovell. In the suit, Manziel claims that Eric Vaughan, a man who was selling T-shirts that read, "Keep Calm and Johnny Football," infringed on his trademark rights.
