NFL not happy with RGIII’s “Heart” shirt

If you watched the Pregame show for the Washington Redskins and the New Orleans Saints, you might have seen a shirt that Robert Griffin III was wearing prior to suiting up for his record-setting Rookie debut.

Griffin appeared in a white Redskins shirt that had the word “Heart” handwritten on his left side. The “H” of heart was strategically placed to cover up the Nike Swoosh, a competitor of Adidas in which RGIII is sponsored. 

The NFL is in the first-of-five years with Nike as its official apparel provider, and players are not allowed to modify it’s gear in any way.

Darren Rovell of ESPN Sports Business says that RGIII will likely not be fined for the cover-up because it was only visible for a short moment during pregame warm ups, but he will be talked to about it.

NFL Spokesperson Brian McCarthy said that It won’t happen again
