Robert Griffin III hasn’t even played a full, healthy NFL season yet, but his name constantly makes headlines. Both for good, bad and otherwise meaningless reasons.
Last season, you’ll remember Griffin being fined by the NFL for wearing adidas apparel. Griffin is an adidas pitchman, while Nike is the official outfitter of the NFL.
During pregame warmups prior to Monday Night Football (a game in which Griffin did not even play), he was going through some reps while donning adidas apparel again. Just because it was preseason, and he didn’t play in the game doesn’t matter. According to the Washington Post, Griffin was fined $10,000 for his second wardrobe malfunction.
Technically, he’s being fined for wearing “unauthorized apparel”, but that “Operation Patience” campaign is on an adidas t-shirt, so read between the lines.
Let’s just hope adidas picks up the tab.
