    Many businesses in New Orleans have received cease and desist order for printing and selling Who dat shirts. The NFL says that any unauthorized use of the Saints colors and other marks designed to create the illusion of an affiliation with the Saints is equally a violation of the Saints trademark rights because it allows a third party to 'free ride' by profiting from confusion of the team's fans, who want to show support for the Saints.

    Because you gotta remember that the Saints belong to the NFL - New Orleans is just where they play.

    The bigger question should be who owns "Who Dat?"

    The Bengals or the Saints...
