During a Sunday post-game press conference for the NFL, an uniform inspector for the NFL told Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III that he had to turn his blue "No Jesus, No Peace," t-shirt inside out before speaking to the press. According to a reporter from the Richmond, Virginia Dispatch named Michael Phillips, the NFL uniform inspector asked Griffin to turn the shirt inside out because the blue shirt worn by Griffin was not Nike brand. According to CSN Washington, A rep for the NFL denied these claims and the spokesperson did state that RG3 most likely flipped the shirt on his own to avoid a possible fine from the NFL. According to CSN, NFL by laws state that a player cannot wear clothing that sends any type of personal message on game days. -Penn
