Sean Taylor Tribute Painting

Wow, how did something that started out as such a nice jesture turn into such a debacle. Everyone comes out of this one looking bad.

Re: Sean Taylor Tribute Painting

Wow, this looks really bad on the part of Corriveau and the Redskins. The guy is basically charging $100 per hour, which is not unreasonable (maybe even cheap).

The Redskins should just buy the painting, knowing that $5,000 will go to the Children's hospital.

Pathetic.

Re: Sean Taylor Tribute Painting

I'd say the fact that he made a tribute painting means he shouldn't be selling it for profit. Once he is selling for profit then it gets pretty dicey to me. I don't blame people for getting ticked at him. I don't see how anyone else looks bad other than him on this deal.

Re: Sean Taylor Tribute Painting

yeah, looks shady. If 100% was for charity, I'd have no issue with it. But it's not.

To be honest the top right corner pic of ST looks horrible, plus this looks like something you could get airbrushed at Ocean City on a T-Shirt.

Re: Sean Taylor Tribute Painting

Well add the fact he is making a profit and then turned around and told Moss $5,000 for three prints tells me he is out to make money. The charity thing might just be to help him sell the painting.

Re: Sean Taylor Tribute Painting

WJLA is reporting on it as well. The artist is entitled to make a living; it's nice that he's offering to donate $5K to a hospital. It's quite pathetic and low of the team's management to pull this crap. Sorry, but they just got on my s--t list.

Thank you. He spent 200 hours on it.

Are you looking at the painting or the painting on your laptop?

Re: Sean Taylor Tribute Painting

Unfortunately the Skins management is right. He has a right to sell his art for whatever price he wants, but he can't sell something that is trademarked or copyrighted without compensating whoever owns the license to it. It's a slippery slope but it's really not different than selling knock off jerseys or pirated videos. As for Moss, how can you blame him for balking at what he thought was too high of a price for the piece?

Re: Sean Taylor Tribute Painting

He sounds selfish and the NFL seems petty asking for logos to be removed.

Sure, the logo belongs to the team and league, but we can't use it as fans in ANY circumstances?

A lot of artists are very arrogant and overvalue their work too.

It's a shame that Sean's likeness has to be involved in this mess that is causing everyone (both sides) to act this way.

What's wrong with him making $? If only $1 from that painting went to charity its $1 more than they had and they should be happy. It never ceases to amaze me how people critisize how much $ people do or dont give to charity.

Its very different than selling knock off jerseys. This is an artistic work not a rip off. Tiger Woods tried to fight a tribute painting under his image being trade marked and lost.

Re: Sean Taylor Tribute Painting

The Redskins are wrong here. They should pay the 20K or leave him alone. Leroy Neiman did a famous painting of Doug Williams in Super Bowl XXII that costs many thousands of dollars just for a print of it. I don't see them busting his stones.
