The NFL fined Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III $10,000 for wearing Adidas apparel to a post-game news conference ... seriously.

Nike is the league’s official uniform maker, so this was a big no-no.


League officials said they would issue a warning but not a fine to Griffin earlier this season when he covered the Nike logo on his shirt before a game.

The rookie phenomenon was fined this time, however, after rocking Adidas again following the team's win over the Baltimore Ravens on December 9.

Griffin was also in the news this week because of the comments made by Rob Parker of ESPN, who accused him of being a "cornball brother" ... seriously.
