A Chiefs “three-peat” could be good news for Pat Riley

Many folks will be rooting in opposition to the Chiefs turning into the primary crew to win three straight Super Bowls. Pat Riley is not going to be.

If the Chiefs accomplish the primary ever Super Bowl three-peat, the legendary NBA coach and govt stands to make some cash from the following merchandising blitz.

In the late Eighties, when Riley’s Lakers had been closing in on a 3rd straight NBA crown, Riley secured trademark protection for the phrase. He has since cashed in when, for instance, the Chicago Bulls received three championships in a row, twice.

Nineteen years in the past, Riley stated he donates a lot of what he makes from the phrase to charity. If the Chiefs pull it off, a number of of Riley’s most well-liked charities will profit from it. Or Riley will hold all of it himself.

It will be attention-grabbing to see whether or not the Chiefs and/or the NFL attempt to battle it, both by attacking the trademark or by developing with one thing else.

Like Three-Chief. Three-Pat.

I’ll be proper again. . . . I’ve received just a few issues to register. I imply, do.
