NFL fashion police fine Redskins QB $10K for 'unauthorized' T-shirt12/20/2012
When Nike says "Just Do It," apparently "it" doesn't mean "wear Adidas clothing." The NFL fined Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III $10,000 for wriggling into an Adidas T-shirt and sweatshirt at a postgame news conference after his team played the Baltimore Ravens. Although Griffin has an endorsement deal with Adidas, the NFL itself is sponsored by Nike and felt justified in issuing the fine for "unauthorized apparel" (which sounds like a macho way of saying "We're the fashion police"). With the amount that Griffin was penalized, you could buy 333 of the Adidas "Light You Up" RGIII Collection T-shirts that — irony alert! — the Redskins sell in their official team store. [Source]
