Robert Griffin talks why he chose adidas over Nike and Under Armour (video)April 24, 2012
We caught up with 2011 Heisman Trophy winner and future Washington Redskin draft pick, Robert Griffin III today at Subway. He’s now a member of the Subway Fresh team. The people at Subway made a life size statue of RG3 and they also teamed up with adidas to give RG3 his own custom adidas + Subway socks. We were able to ask RG3 a few questions. Why he chose adidas over Nike and Under Armour and also asked if he gave Jim Irsay the famous “I’m going to kick your butt” speech that Peyton Manning game him back in 1998.
“In life you want to associate yourself with the best, and I know it’s commonly believed that Nike is the best but adidas showed me something — and I’m not talking about money, and they showed me something that lead believe there was a right way to go.”
