Robert Griffin III liked fan’s Instagram post trashing Redskins, Dan Snyder
Could this be the final straw in the relationship between the Washington Redskins and Robert Griffin III?
The Redskins QB liked a post on Instagram shared Monday night by a fan who expressed support of the quarterback while blaming the team for him.
Here is the message the fan wrote:
As a Skins Fan I’m disappointed in the way my team used this mans talent and potential to do nothing but raise hopes and make a profit. I don’t regret the skins grabbing RG, I do regret having a sorry a– team owner and sorry a– front office who couldn’t put a winning coaching staff together who could actually compete for a super bowl. Griffin does not deserve the blame or bad rap, the man has gone above and beyond since day one to the point of injury, while at the same time being a role model of a person. The Redskins let him fall and did not help him get up. No matter if he’s a starter, back up, or played for another team I will always respect and be a fan of RG3.
Though Griffin could claim that he just supports anyone who supports him, or that someone else running his account did the “liking,” this comes at a time when his relationship with the organization seems fractured beyond repair.
Griffin used to brag about his influence over team owner Daniel Snyder. Now he’s liking something that calls the man a “sorry a– team owner”? Yeah, that’s going to go over really well with the front office.
A report said Snyder would not block a trade involving the QB he once loved. After seeing this, he has even more reason to shuttle the former Heisman Trophy winner out of town.
Oh, and for those of you questioning how much a “like” on Instagram really even means to a team, just remember how this got one athlete benched.
