You also have to worry about precedent. If they do not try to fight the hockey team using it what about when a prostitution (legal) ring wants to use it or some other unsavory organization? If they let the hockey team do it without incident or challenge they will have to let others as well.

I have to believe the Army gave this some thought.

[begin quote]
In the opposition, the Army said it believes it will be damaged if the Vegas Golden Knights are able to register their trademark over the name.
[end quote]

I suspect that the concern is that if the hockey team patents it, the Army may be constrained downstream in how it uses "Golden Knights" in advertising and on souvenirs. I hope that a legal mechanism can be found to accommodate both ... because absent the patent question, I agree wholeheartedly with your comment.
