Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was told by an NFL uniform inspector to turn around a T-shirt for a recent press conference, according to a report.
Michael Phillips, the Redskins reporter for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, posted on Twitter that Griffin was told by NFL Uniform Inspector Tony McGee, a former Redskins defensive end, that he couldn’t wear the T-shirt because it wasn’t a Nike product.
“Throughout the period on game-day that a player is visible to the stadium and television audience (including in pregame warm-ups, in the bench area, and during postgame interviews in the locker room or on the field), players are prohibited from wearing, displaying, or otherwise conveying personal messages either in writing or illustration, unless such message has been approved in advance by the League office.”
