Robert Griffin III Loses Arby’s Parking Spot

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was living the American dream.

Not only was he the franchise quarterback of an NFL team, but he was honored with his own private parking spot at a local Arby’s restaurant.

Unfortunately for Griffin, all good things must come to an end. Now, when Griffin makes the journey to Arby’s, he will be forced to park with the rest of us common folk. That’s just not fair.
Representatives of the Redskins reportedly reached out to Arby’s franchise owner Dean Kovanes to politely ask him to remove the sign. The Redskins likely didn’t want there to be any potential confusion or belief that Arby’s was an official sponsor of the team.

While it makes perfect sense for the Redskins to ask to have the sign removed, they should be ashamed of themselves. Can’t a man enjoy some food with a premium parking spot? What is this world coming to?

This is one of the finer examples of all our freedoms being taken away. Such a bloody shame.

    I miss Arby’s! We have Subways, McD’s, Dominos, Burger Kings, Pizza Huts, KFCs, PaPa John’s, White Castles, Baskin Robbins, Star Bucks, and probably others I can’t remember BUT, no Arby’s! In the country of Beef Eaters, we don’t have an Arby’s. In a nation of Beef Wellingtons, no Arby’s! Could someone with money, bring Arby’s franchises to the UK?! We need Arby’s! Of course there would have to be along side Arby’s famous Arby’s Sauce….curry sauce! Forget English mustard, the one sauce many people have to have here is… curry sauce. Even McDs saw that and have a curry dipping sauce. Bring us the Roast Beef sandwich!
