No I did not lose a sig bet, but I am really really really ridiculously good looking.
Not defending RG3 brah and what he did and didn't do. I just think it's a stupid rule. Johnny football should be able to wear whatever he wants when he gets to the nfl without getting fined.
He'll have his own brand by then IMO, which will probably sponsor the entire NFL.
Standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams,
Telling myself it's not as hard as it seems - Led Zeppelin
Kirk Cousins' apparel, though less flashy, is far superior overall.
Its not the NFL's fault...I am sure their contract with Nike says that players can only wear Nike apparel during official NFL stuff. Why else would a company pay to have the rights to make all of the NFL stuff if the players could wear what they wanted?
Steve Spurrier is a God, and Mark Richt worships him
Eh... it's part if the uniform. Do you think that McDonalds employees want to wear those crappy shirts? I'm not going to feel bad when millionaires decide not to follow the rules.
Don't really care either way. Adidas is his sponsor, but Nike is the NFL Sponsor. Adidas will pay the fine for RG3, so I really don't see who the NFL thinks they are hurting with this measly fine.
RG3 is so awesome.
I don't feel bad for him, like I said I'm sure Adidas will pay it. I just think the rule is stupid. It's not like he wore and Adidas uniform on game day. Dude didn't play and showed up to the game repping his sponsor and got fined, IMO that's stupid.
You really need to get over that RG3hate he has his team at 8-6 w/ the possibility of a playoff berth...unlike Tannehill whom nobody even cares to talk about.
i think the real question here is: why is Tony Romo not fined for wearing that dumbass Starter hat?

Starter is part of the NFL
Who cares? RG3 is probably one of the most overrated, overhyped players in the NFL. He gets injured and Kurt Cousins has more passing yards than RG3 had all year, which is more proof the Redskins success is not because of RG3
Non story here. He broke the rules on purpose and is paying for his consequences. 10k is nothing to him.. He makes that every time a commercial of his is aired.
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
He makes about 10x that each time a commercial is aired. He probably pulled that 10k right out of his pocket and threw it on the ground at their feet.
hahaha Super Cam sucks don't project your bitter hate onto him because RGIII's team actually WINS games
Yea, Cam isn't shit compared to RG3.
Yet Cam will statistically be the greatest quarterback in NFL history after two years. More passing yards than any quarterback in history of NFL after his first two years. More rushing yards than any quarterback in NFL history after first two years. 2nd or 3rd most passing touchdowns in history after first two years. Most combined touchdowns between passing and rushing of any quarterback in history of NFL after first two years
RG3 wont break any of those records and only wishes he could be like Cam

I didn't say anything about Tannehill.
Griffin can be fined as much as the NFL wants to fine him. Adidas will just pay it for him, and probably pay Griffin for bringing attention, which is what they want RG3 to do.
Nothing wrong here. Win/Win for RG3.
RG3 is a high character guy. He is very respectful to others, intelligent, and just a nice guy all around. He is impossible to hate unless you are USMCAG.
I like where this thread is going, only thing missing is "#2 Noles"

Wearing your sponsor is hardly a sign of bad character in a person.
Jacory Harris > Tannehill
Are you really questioning his moral character for breaking a rule about what apparel he's allowed to wear? Huge, huge stretch.
I know one rookie who is taking the worst team in the league last year to the playoffs this year.
I think it's all a ploy by RG3, he's trying to act more "black" so he can get more street cred with the ESPN analyst.
How much you wanna bet he got paid a lot more to do it. So wearing them and getting that 10k hit probably was something they knew would happen so it's no big deal.
This stuff is so dumb. I hatenthatnthey make itmso difficult formguysnand their individual endorsements
