ESPN analyst Mark Schlereth was asked on NFL Live to give his thoughts on Robert Griffin III creating his own logo.
“It was kind of a throwaway comment at the end of NFL Live,” Schlereth said via the Washington Post. “Trey [Wingo] asked me and Mark Brunell what we thought. And I’m like I understand if you create a logo for your foundation, or I understand if Adidas creates a logo because they’re releasing your RGIII training shoe or something. But to have your own personal logo, I just thought, was like the cart before the horse.
“You know, are we working on branding ourselves, or are we working on becoming a great football player?” Schlereth went on. “You were benched at the end of last season. And so, to me, [the comment] was not a big deal. Well, apparently he was offended by that.”
Schlereth then responded to some Redskins fans on Twitter.

RG3 also gave his take without mentioning Schlereth.
No matter what, have to stay above the fray. Same ones bad mouthing you on TV and radio are smiling in your face asking for favors
