Armed federal police raid local T-shirt seller over colors?

~ The Rebel ~ 2012/06/08 22:27:06

The staff at Hi-Performance on N. May Ave. said they were surprised when agents came in the store on Wednesday and took all of its Thunder t-shirts.

“They just came in and kind of bum rushed us,” employee Chadd Hook said. “Six guys came, one was Homeland Security and his gun was exposed. The others said they were NBA officials. They said they were going to confiscate all our shirts now or sue us.”

The store allowed local artist to create their own Thunder inspired shirts and the store agreed to sell them.

While they loaded up a stack of shirts Hook, said the agents gave him a letter that basically says the NBA owns all the images on the material they were selling including the word “Thunder” and the use of the “Thunder’s trademark blue and orange colors.”

    I really hate sports now, it no longer has anything to do with sports and everything to do with how much cash can be bilked out of the clutz's that keep going to see "Their team" play, people are such Lemmings.

    IT'S PLUNDERING, PILLAGE and RAPINE. The STORE OWNERS and the

    LOCAL ARTISTS VICTIMS of this ATROCITY SHOULD SUE the FEDERAL POLICE

    for PROPERTIES DAMAGES, PHYSICAL and EMOTIONAL SUFFERINGS.

    Gee ..
    Homeland Security is now the enforcers for the NBA?
    (no matter what .. that was EXCESSIVE INDEED)

    I notice that the Store is very careful to sell only those items that are NOT recognized logos at all .. the Artist also knew that and created something different indeed ..

    Sigh .. it is all about the $$$$$ with these pro sports ..
