And the team’s 12th man belongs to…

“In football, a maximum of 11 players at a time are allowed on the field, and so the phrase ’12th man’ is sometimes used to refer to the important role played by the fans.”
After fighting to win the trademark rights to the “12th man” from one NFL franchise, the Seattle Seahawks, in 2006, Texas A&M is ready to enforce their right against another NFL team. The Denver Broncos broadcasted a “12th Man” flag during its first round playoff win and Texas A&M wants to see that it does not happen again.
