Tarik El-Bashir explains RG3's $10,000 fine
Robert Griffin III has been fined $10,000 for his postgame attire following the Redskins' victory over the Ravens, an NFL official confirmed Wednesday.
Griffin often wears a suit and tie to news conferences after games. But the Redskins’ star suffered a knee injury in that contest and instead wore an Adidas sweatsuit and t-shirt as he fielded questions from the media at the podium. Adidas is among Griffin's growing list of endorsements.
The NFL’s official uniform supplier is Nike, an Adidas rival.
Earlier this season, Griffin covered the Nike swoosh on his compression shirt during warmups in New Orleans with marker. In St. Louis, Griffin wore a grey shirt inside out to obscure the Nike logo.
It's believed that he's worn a plain white compression during warmups since.
