    Anyone Else Tired of Hearing RG3?

    I think it's dumb how someone is allowed to put III on the back of their jersey. The rules were changed specifically for Robert Griffin, as I call him, his name. If I remember correctly,before they changed the rules before this year, the rules were if there is someone with your same last name on your team, you can add your first initial. The only other Griffin on the Redskins is Cedric Griffin, so at best Robert Griffin should only be able to add an R to his jersey, so it would look like R. Griffin, instead of Griffin III. Maybe it's just me but the whole RG3 thing annoys me, when we hear Robert Griffin, we don't think of his dad or grandpa, we think of Robert Griffin the QB for the Redskins, the III is unnecessary.

    Here;s an article with the rule change: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...r-griffin-iii/ sorry, I don't know how to make it a link, you might have to copy paste.

    I'm wondering your thoughts on this, I know this is old news but I just wanted to see if anyone else feels thie same way as I do because it annoys me so much.

    Peace & Go Blue,

    Being I live in Virginia, all we here is RGIII! And yes I am sick to death of hearing about him. Remember, he is not the first RGIII to play for the Redskins...there is Rex Grossman III. (yes this is true)

    AMEN to that. I live in the Fredericksburg Va area and all they talk about is RG 3. It is really ridiculous. He is a good quarterback and role model but enough is enough ! One year does not make a career especially one who runs a lot. Give the guy a couple of years before they make his bust for Canton. The injuries are only starting. He might be known in the future as M. Vick ll

    The NFL is 10% football, 10% player safety (avoid legal fees), and 80% marketing. "RGIII" is marketing in a large metro area in DC. I can't stand his name, let alone him, but this is all the NFL selling their fans a brand.

    I agree....this league jumped the shark a long time ago.

    The guy is not humble one bit. He cried about he should have won the first time that we played them. He called the rams classless for hitting him when he was a runner. He brags about his speed all the time and how he had that 70 td run. He basically called himself pretty damn cool. The guys a tool can't stand him. Pretty soon dudes going to have to learn how to play from the pocket look at what happened to him on Sunday. One last thing yes the overhyping off this guy is sickening. I was watching ESPN this week and you would've thought he made the game tying touchdown and run. They gave Kurt Cousins no love at all.

    Well, yeah. I guess it's a relative term. I think he's pretty grounded compared to the rest of the players out there.
