Quote:
Robert Griffin III took off his cleats and could tell by the look on the two fans' faces they were expecting something that wasn't going to happen. He didn't want to give the two cancer survivors his cleats. He wanted their autographs on them.


Quote:
Griffin said there was no impetus for the idea of asking for the autographs, it just came to him.

"When I was growing up I always wanted to meet guys I looked up to, role models," he said. "If I'd have met Michael Jordan and he asked for my autograph there would have been a shock. It's flipping the script a little bit, but I think it means something to them. If I'm their first autograph that's an honor to me."


Good for you Robert!!

Just another example of how he only cares about himself, exploiting autographs from those poor kids.

I'm just happy ESPN reporter John Kiem was there to report this noble gesture.. How sad to think it could have just slipped by unreported.
