    Last night on ESPN2 or some other sports station, I caught the last 15 minutes or so of the World Series of Youth Lacrosse. This was the championship and Jake Steinfeld presented the final trophy.
    One team was the Long Island Express and the other team was the Team 91 Bandits which won with the last goal scored by them with seconds left by some kid from Massapequa Long Island who went to Plainedge High School so this kid grew up very close to me even though I went to MHS. Apparently, Team 91 Bandits is a Long Island team also.

    Anyway, these "Team 91 Bandits" were using the Buffalo Bandits logo albeit slightly modified with the Buffalo being replaced by Team 91. I can't help but wonder if there was a copyright infringement. I don't see the Buffalo Bandits or the NLL as sponsors of this event.

    The copying of the logo is so blatant that the Buffalo Bandits must know about this and approve/gave permission.

    Anybody know anything about this?

    I don't know anything about it, but this sort of thing seems to be common in youth tournaments.

    This is such a July in a winter league post lol

    It just says BANDITS in orange generic block font. I don't think the word Bandits is a copyright infringement.

    That said, I wish our Bandits had those jerseys instead of what they do wear.

    No, it you watched closely including at the coaches, it's obviously a Buffalo Bandits logo. Here's a few years ago albeit for a box team...

    There is no video in the link you posted, Vin. Just a picture of kids in white jerseys with orange block font letter chasing a loose ball. And believe me, I studied it closely before I posted something that I obviously missed. the photo you posted here is clearly unmistakable.

    It's a youth lacrosse tournament. I highly doubt anyone would care.

    lol C'mon, are we that bored and miserable to go out of our way to do research and tattle tale on a youth lacrosse program, which is growing the game and most likely paying tribute to the 91 bandits, that they are using the bandits logo? If that's the case, there are about 12,000 little league baseball teams using the Yankees logo. That will keep you busy until the season starts.:rolleyes:

    I hope PSE has already sent them a cease and desist letter!

    I can see it now... "Yeah yeah I know about the whole McCoy thing, but did you see this youth lacrosse program is using our Bandits logo?!?! Where do they get off? I want a team on this immediately! We can't have this! It won't stand! I wont let these hooligans, these, thieves misrepresent our oh so prestigious NLL franchise in front of half the players' family members in attendance! - Terry Pegula, Probably.

    Guys... looks like we have another group of a-holes. Somebody needs to do something, this is getting out of hand.
