ESPN calls RGIII selfish, Twitter cries ‘RACIST!’

Recently an unnamed scout has questioned the character of Heisman trophy winner and top NFL QB prospect Robert Griffin III. On ESPN’s First Take they debated the issue and certain members of the talk show’s panel seemed to agree with the scout’s assessment.

Up to this point RGIII has seemed to be one of the most humble, down to earth and nicest athletes of all time. Calling him selfish seems absolutely absurd which led to many tweeters calling ESPN racist.!/Neal_Dowell/status/193374542733918209

Other tweeters were hesitant to play the race card, but didn’t agree with ESPN’s claims of selfishness or comparisons to dog-killer Michael Vick.

One intelligent and caring fan urged RGII to ignore the media and just stay true to himself.

RGIII responded to his haters by tweeting that the negativity only adds fuel to his fire.
