A T-shirt that alters the New York Jets logo into a more Jesus-friendly theme: the “NY” is replaced with “MY” and the “JETS” is replaced with “JESUS” and changes football at the bottom into a Jesus Fish, has Tim Tebow and his attorneys, instead of bending on one knee, up in arms.
The company, Cubby Tees who created the T-shirt and who specialize in sport-themed shirts, have been served with a cease and desist letter by the second string quarterback and his attorneys. Tebow’s representatives stated: “The Merchandise makes it appear as if Mr. Tebow actually endorses Cubby Tees and its products.”
The problem: the shirt itself contains absolutely no reference to Tim Tebow – there is no likeness of Tebow, and his name isn’t on it anywhere.
Cubby Tees response: “the design shares nothing with Mr. Tebow except for promotion of a common Lord and Savior.”
