This whole thing about fans giving RG3 and his soon to be wife gifts is silly. So everytime I give someone a gift that has more money than me I should be ashamed and they should feel guilty for accepting it? Or everytime some one gives me a gift that has less money than me, I should give it to charity? That's what it boils down to. A gift is just that a gift and in the case of the fans, who cares what their motivation is. Wheither it s a way of saying thanks to RG3 or just to tell their friends that they gave him a gift, its their money to spend as they please. I just got back from a vaction in Florida where I spent way too much on fruity drinks at the beach, but no one is going to tell me I'm crazy for doing that.
that is the liberal/socialist mindset in a nutshell. no gifts at all, unless everyone is equal. screw those rich people, nogiftsforyou. tey didnt build that, et cetera (insert democrat slogan here)

I haven't heard any of whatever you are talking about, but it sounds more like media looking for any story to do with Griffin. As for Griffin and Snyder having dinner, I imagine it's tied around the wedding.

If you don't want to hear it, just don't watch them.

Re: Off Season Griffin Man Crush thread

Everywhere I look RG3 is there...There is something about his character that leaves much to be desired. He's still young but to me he doesn't seem like a genuine person. He needs to shut his mouth and Tweeting, keep it real and moving.

So because he's a person of dynamic character he should stop all communications? I hardly think he's to blame for a media who dissects and analyzes every word he says or letter he types. I never get te sense that he's actively trying to seek out the attention. I think most mediaites realize that RG3 is popular and, therefore, what he says has resonance with people.

I think once the honeymoon period is truly over and people start to obsess over the next big name, then he'll step away from the constant barrage of coverage.

Media isn't driving this, tweeting about crap that happened last year and making it seem like you didn't want to play and the coaches made him. Then his dad doing a interview and saying he should have been pulled out of the Seattle game and he hopes they change the offense this year.

Wow. Guess RG3 cant please everyone. I guess if he actually did something worth criticizing I'd understand it.

I doubt that his dad called up media outlets saying "I NEED TO GET THIS OUT THERE" more likely the media knows that Griffin news gets viewers and asked his dad for an interview. At which point his dad has a right to express his views. For me that's the media driving it. Likewise, Griffin has answered repeatedly, and while he has never out and out said it's all on me, his answers have generally reflected what I think, in that everyone had a bit of the blame, and they all learned a little, and hopefully if that same situation happens, we see a different outcome.


Can you show me any tweets by Griffin that sound like he didn't want to play and coaches made him? I have never heard that spin by Griffin, and it certainly would be a wholesale change from what he had been saying.

Re: Off Season Griffin Man Crush thread

The problem is nobody took the responsibility to get him out of the game, probably because everyone assumed someone else held that responsibility. Whether you are of the mindset that the player needs to sit himself or that it's the coach who should make the call or if you think a sideline doctor or trainer needs to speak up. I'm sure lessons were learned. Now tweets are made and the world continues to spin. RG3 is probably light-heartedly stirring up stuff now just to get a good laugh at people's ridiculously misplaced prerogatives.

Re: Off Season Griffin Man Crush thread

So has RG3 actually said anything new recently about the Seattle game or are people still going off what he said about a month ago?

Why tweet about your life if your not wanting attention.

Re: Off Season Griffin Man Crush thread

Robert Griffin Jr. wants Robert Griffin III of Washington Redskins to throw more, run less - ESPN

This is a perfect example.

Re: Off Season Griffin Man Crush thread

Nothing new and now Jason Reid wrote an article saying "Shanny needs to revamp - RGIII obviuosly not happy". No indication that RGIII is unhappy or, really, for any of his assertions but it is now being discussed as if it were a fact.

Opinion morphs to factual information, welcome to the internet.
