Don’t H8 is one suggestion by the nonprofit for a new name.

It’s reported that New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has renamed his boat to reflect the number of Super Bowl victories he has amassed.

Belichick renamed his Grady-White Tournament 225 after each Super Bowl win. The coach donated V Rings to Sail Newport in Newport, R.I., for use as a support vessel.

Belichick now owns a Grady-White Freedom 307, and updated the name of his 307 to VII Rings, in honor of his seventh Super Bowl ring as a head or assistant head coach.

With the Patriots beating the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 in the Super Bowl on Sunday, Discover Boating has offered to paint Belichick’s Grady-White. Discover Boating offered some new name suggestions, including Ocho Ring-O, Don’t H8, Billy G.O.A.T., G.O.A.T. Captain and IX Rings (“so we don’t have to paint it twice”).
