Robert Griffin told to turn his t-shirt inside out...

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III attended a press conference discussing Sunday's football game where the Redskins quarterback appeared to have turned his Jesus-themed shirt inside-out.

 

Prior to the press conference Griffin donned a blue t-shirt that read "Know Jesus Know Peace." However, once the press event was underway, the shirt was turned-inside out so that the Christian message was unreadable.

 

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.

 

Whether it was because the T-shirt was not a Nike product, or if it was due to the message on the shirt, questions were raised as to what the NFL's motive was for making Griffin turn his shirt inside-out.

"Even though Mr. McGee stated that the change was due to the shirt not being a Nike product and everyone knows that product placement in these interviews and team media functions is bought, paid for and protected, we still would like to raise the question of whether it was religiously based, because we figure enough of you dopes will get your feelings hurt that maybe we can start another outrage storm over a non-issue to get us some clicks."

While I have no doubt that this issue is seen as a click-generator to the guy who wrote it, I'm not sure how his shirt conflicted with Nike in any way. Was it an Addidas shirt or something? I thought the T-shirt was generic/not associated with any clothing brand?
