Adidas! Nike! Redskins' Robert Griffin III Fined by NFL for his 'Unauthorized Apparel'

Adidas! Nike! Redskins' Robert Griffin III Fined by NFL for his 'Unauthorized Apparel'
BY CHRISTINE VALDEZ

What might seem like a small, innocent mistake by Robert Griffin III was a big no no, says the NFL.

Griffin was fined $10,000 by the NFL for wearing Adidas sweatshirts during post-game interviews last weekend according to The Inquisitr. Griffin’s apparel choice was deemed as “unauthorized apparel" by the NFL since the league has a deal with Nike.

The Associated Press reports that Griffin, who had been inactive during the Washington Redskins game Sunday, has a sponsorship with Adidas.

The fine comes as a punishment for Griffin who had been warned about his attire at least once before Sunday.

Earlier in the season the Redskins quarterback had gotten a warning from the league as he decided to cover up one of the Nike Swooshes on one of his T-shirts before a game according to the AP.

Nike is the current supplier of all NFL gear since the beginning of the 2012 season. The shoe brand paid the NFL $1.1 billion in order to have the exclusive rights to produce NFL gear, according to the NY Daily News.
