There were reports that after the San Francisco 49ers beat the Washington Redskins on Monday night that Robert Griffin III’s father came into the locker room. It was reported that it was a lengthy and tense conversation, Griffin disputes that report and isn’t thrilled that his father is being talked about.
“I don’t know what all has been said, I just know it hasn’t all been positive,” Griffin told reporters. “My dad came to check on me. He came to check on me to make sure I wasn’t injured. Mom was upset. He wanted to, you know, do his fatherly duties and step in there and see if I was OK.”
“Anybody out there that’s going after my dad needs to back up,” Griffin said. “That is my father. I will protect my family. He served 21 years in the military. I know that’s not an excuse for anything that he does, but he’s not overstepping any bounds, so I respect that. I hope people will respect that.”
I didn’t see any negative reports personally, just some saying it was odd. For instance there was this report from Albert Breer: “Point is, because of the situation, I understand why it’s worth noting RG3′s dad was in there, but not sure it’s cause for alarm.”
