NFL to RG3: Great game, but stop covering up our sponsor's logo
While the league is undoubtedly thrilled to see one of their exciting young stars live up to the early hype, they weren't so thrilled to see what he did to his shirt during warmups.
The NFL has an apparel deal with Nike, so all on-field uniforms have to have the Nike swoosh emblazoned somewhere on there.
Griffin, on the other hand, has a pretty sweet endorsement deal with Adidas.
In order to avoid any appearances of Nike support, Griffin covered up the Nike logo on his warmup shirt with an oversized H, and wrote the word "heart" on his shirt.
The NFL says they won't fine him this time, but they'd prefer to give Nike the proper screen time that they paid for in their deal with the league.
League spokesman Brian McCarthy says that it won't happen again.
Is the league going too far here? Or was RG3 wrong to cover up the logo?
Either way... one thing is clear. The NFL isn't all fun and games. It's a business, plain and simple.
