    Doesn’t matter, first come first serve, let him make money off of it if no one else owns the trademark.

    Because people shouldn't be able to use his name and likeness for free

    Exactly, if Kyler did the act, then that's why the name has any value... sort of like not doing a painting but then naming it does not give you the rights to the painting :raccoon:

    You're right, he's going to be the only Murray to ever live from this point on and that's the only possible context the phrase could be used in in perpetuity.

    What’s wrong with it? He’s protecting his financial interests. I would too.

    Correct... anyone who makes the claim that this is taking away from his game studying or caring about football is totally asinine when all it requires is a few minutes for him to call his agent and get this while he goes about being a NFL QB :)

    BTW, Larry Fitzgerald has managed his career the same way guys. It’s only on super special occasions that he will sign his name to cards, helmets, jerseys, or other memorabilia.

    This is very true. I can tell you a story in Miami where we were with only family members of the team and he wouldn't sign anything not even for little kids.

    I’ve been told it’s “in his contract” to not sign anything until he retires from the game. This way (apparently) it will greatly increase the value of his “autograph” and he/his reps will have better control over his earnings. You gotta figure Randy moss and chris Carter pretty much raised him as a pro athlete, and Larry has been calculated in every move he has made since he was drafted. Just another reason he is considered very smart and respectable.
