Intellectual property is a sticky subject for people these days. I think it's dumb also; I don't think people are going to forever link Seattle with the 12th man concept. Are the Aggies really going to lose money over not having sole rights to the phrase "12th man?" :-B

Personally I wouldn't want to be the ones saying "yeah, we didn't notice for 22 years. Why? Oh I dunno, we're still listening to Bon Jovi's Slippery When Wet so what the hell do you expect?"

the aggies are proud of their tradition. and foolish too. anyone remember the bonfire incident about 5 years ago? i can see their argument...at least being in the area you hear all about their traditions and yada yada yada, ad nauseum. so i can only imagine how indoctrinated it is to the people that actually attend the school and participate in said traditions, or did at one time. that being said...this is stupid.

Everyone on the Aggies apart from Jovorskie Lane and Martellus Bennett sucks.

Don't get me started on IP.... just the idea that I can pay $20 for a DVD and when I get it home I still don't own it is insanity at its' worse...
Hell, if Hollywood can do it to us in the name of greed, then I see no reason why TAMU shouldn't be able to do it in the name of tradition...

I think it's funny, they didn't notice since 1984? and once the Seahawks actually do well and get publicized going to the Super Bowl, now they go crazy over it......jelousy

I think they should be banned from doing, "The Wave," because it originated in Seattle. In fact, everytime they do, "The Husky Wave," they should have to disclose that it is a Husky tradition and pay a royalty. Retroactive.

Why, how dare they steal the traditions of another school! ;-7
