New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady discussed a recent effort to trademark the nickname “Tom Terrific,” insisting that that a perceived slight of National Hall of Fame pitcher and former Cincinnati Reds great Tom Seaver was “unfortunate.”

“I was actually trying to do something – because I didn’t like the nickname – and I wanted to make sure no one used it, because some people wanted to use it. I was trying to keep people from using it and it got spun around to something different than what it was. Good lesson learned and try to do things a little different in the future,” Brady told reporters.

Brady’s company, TEB Capital, which owns “TB12″ trademarks Brady has registered, filed last month for new trademarks of “Tom Terrific,” according to Josh Gerben of Gerben Law Firm.
Former Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Boomer Esiason, co-host of WFAN’s Boomer and Gio, has said he considers Seaver a hero since childhood and is among those who have been outspoken about Brady’s recent effort.
Esiason had this to say earlier this week on WFAN:
And now lo and behold comes the greatest quarterback of all-time trying to trademark the name “Tom Terrific.”
When you’ve got so much goddamned money, you can do whatever you want, and this is now what Tom Brady wants to take — “Tom Terrific” as his nickname.
Maybe in New England they call him that, I guess. But you know what? We’ve been calling Tom Seaver “Tom Terrific” forever, for as long as I can remember, for 50 years.
That’s who Tom Terrific has always been.
I am disgusted, and I’m really surprised, and I’m really — I don’t know, it just feels sleazy to me, you know?
There are very few things that I get wrapped up in. I got wrapped up in this.
There’s nothing I can do about it. All I can do is talk about it and hopefully shame him into not going after it and recognizing a true great of another sport that had the name and was given the name well before he was ever given the name.
The Met fan in me is basically really perturbed by it. It just annoys me because it takes me back to my childhood, and I don’t like people messing with my childhood.
Seaver’s family released a statement in March that the National Baseball Hall of Fame pitcher was diagnosed with dementia and is retiring from public life.
The 74-year-old Seaver was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1992. His 3,640 strikeouts still rank sixth in Major League Baseball history.

Seaver was 75-46 with a 3.18 ERA in six seasons for the Reds from 1977 to 1982 after spending his first 12 seasons with the New York Mets. He was traded by the Mets to the Reds for Doug Flynn, Steve Henderson, Dan Norman and Pat Zachry in June of 1977.
