USA army files dispute with Vegas Golden Knights' name

Army Officially Opposes Vegas Golden Knights Trademark | Chris Creamer's SportsLogos.Net News and Blog : New

As first reported by, Wednesday marked a deadline for extensions filed by both the Army and the College of Saint Rose, whose sports teams are also called the Golden Knights, to potentially oppose the National Hockey League team's trademark registration.

In fact, the Army's website says the accolades influenced how the team chose its name decades ago: "Golden" stood for the gold medals the team had won and "Knights" conveyed the team's ambition "to conquer the skies". However, when Army officials expressed "concern" about that, he chose to name them the Golden Knights, after the U.S. Army's parachute squad.

The team has until February 19 to file its response to the appeal board.

Trump, who grew up in a Presbyterian family, shot back saying it was "disgraceful" for the pope to question his faith. Walker says he has heard many different reports on what was actually said during the bi-partisan immigration meeting.

William Karlsson (71) and his fellow Golden Knights are having a remarkably good season for an expansion team.

On Wednesday, the Department of the Army filed a challenge with the U.S. Trademark Trial and Appeal Board over the use of the name "Golden Knights" and the team's color scheme. Their owner, Bill Foley, is a West Point Military Academy graduate.

As part of their grounds of opposition the Army references numerous quotes made to the media by Vegas Golden Knights owner Bill Foley as well as General Manager George McPhee including those published in the Washington Post following the unveiling of the Golden Knights uniforms in June of 2017.

Michigan State Spartans vs. Michigan Wolverines: Preview and Prediction
He wants to make sure Michigan limits Michigan State on the offensive glass, particularly sophomore center Nick Ward . Throw in the seven-game win streak prior to that game, and John Beilein's squad should be brimming with confidence.

It's hard to predict where this will end up, Army seems pretty upset about the whole thing and they appear to have ample evidence that the hockey club intentionally built their brand around theirs even using the same name as one of their sports clubs. The United States Army Parachute Team is referred to as the Golden Knights, with that trademark officially registered, while the Black Knights, of course, is also the name of Army's athletic teams. "That said, in light of the pending trademark opposition proceedings, we will have no further comment at this time and will address the Army's opposition in the relevant legal forums". "You know the history at West Point". You know about the classmates he had lost serving this country.

The Army also took issue with the Golden Knights' color scheme, saying that their "black+gold/yellow+white" is a violation of the "common law rights" the Black Knights have established. "So, those colors mean a lot to us". Some have speculated that the Golden Knights have been aided there by the "Vegas flu" - a malady that infects opposing players who stay out later than they would in other cities, gambling or seeing a show.

The Golden Knights responded with a statement Thursday "strongly denying the allegations" that they're violation of any trademarks, via ESPN's Greg Wyshynski. "In fact, I tried to incorporate them into the ceremony last week, but we couldn't make it work".
