The NFL has strict guidelines on what you can and cannot wear when you are on the field. These wardrobe guidelines are not just for the game. It also includes the pregame. Last Monday when Washington Redskins quarterback on the field to warm up before the game he wore a T-shirt that said “Operation Patience.” Seems like an okay shirt to wear right? Not by the league’s standards. Reports are coming out that the NFL fined RG3 $10,000 for wearing that shirt. The NFL requires players to follow their uniform rules even if a player is warming up before game time. Griffin, III wore the shirt in regards to his slow, but steady pace as he is getting back to the full strength from his ACL injury he sustained last year. RG3 didn’t even play in that game Monday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Washington Post was the first to report this story about Griffin getting fined $10,000 by the NFL for the apparel violation. This is not the first time that Robert received a fine from the NFL for “violating” the dress code. The NFL fined him $10,000 last year for wearing Adidas gear during a postgame press conference. Nike took over for Reebok last year to dress the NFL last year. Plus the NFL was not too happy when RG3 modified his Nike gear right before a game. Companies like Nike pay a ton of money to be the NFL’s apparel provider. Fortunately for Nike the NFL makes sure that players follow the dress code and that the sponsors get represented well. This is not the only T-shirt that had RG3 in the news recently. The Redskins QB’s face was put on a T-shirt that had half of his face on one side and the Redskins mascot’s face on the other side. To me the league should fine the makers of that T-shirt over RG3.
