On September 7, 2010, unbeknown to nearly everyone, Michael Joseph Messier of Rutland, Vermont and descendant of the New Orleans founding families of d'Iberville and de Bienville, filed a 17-page lawsuit against the New Orleans Saints, the NFL and the state of Louisiana in an upstate New York courtroom. It is a complaint for damages, declaratory and injunctive relief for the misappropriation of the fleur-de-lis. A ruling is still pending.

In other words, Messier is claiming that he and his family are the rightful owners of the team logo we have come to know and love as Saints fans. You might think I'm kidding...but I'm not.

Turns out there was a reason Goldilocks was sleeping in Baby Bears bed. The great grandchildren of the couple have filed suit against Chicago, the NFL, and the Bears organization over naming rights. They claim to be the original Bears not Chicago, Halas or Ditka.

How can someone have ownership to the name of a lily? Did this guy name the lily, fleur de lis?

Didn't think so.
