RG3 loses his preferred parking at Arby’s

rg3parking

We noted in our Saturday one-liners that an Arby’s in Richmond, Virginia had given a preferred parking spot to Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, on the off chance that he wanted to stop by.

Unfortunately, it turns out that if Griffin does go to Arby’s, he’ll have to fight the rest of the crowds for a parking spot.

The franchise owner, Dean Kovanes, told Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post that he took the sign when a team representative contacted him and asked him to remove it. Kovanes said the team representative “couldn’t have been more polite,” but presumably the Redskins didn’t want any suggestion that Arby’s was an official sponsor of either the team or Griffin.

Still, I’m sure Griffin would get a warm welcome if he showed up. Perhaps he should take his fiancee there on the first day of training camp, in an homage to the celebratory meal David Puddy and Elaine Benes shared on Puddy’s first day on the job as a car salesman.

    Gimpy the Third qualifies for handicapped parking anyway. So he doesn’t need the spot badly.

    Arby’s have named their latest slab of raw meat, ” The Face Of RG3″. Or maybe it was the other way around. Works either way.

    Hope he doesn’t have to park his dad’s car in a handicapped space now like George Costanza did.

    NOOOO

  7. logicalvoicesays says: Jul 2, 2013 2:30 PM

    Please. Robert gets and does what he wants, when he wants, whenever he wants. Especially on the football field. No one can stop him unless it’s a mafia-ish effort like how the National Fixed League blantally ended the Redskins season lead by John Mara and his cheating ways. #TheBurgundyandGoldcannoutbestopped

    If I had that preferred spot I would be there everyday, Love Arby’s!

  12. leanback360 says: Jul 2, 2013 2:34 PM

    Serves him right, Arby’s realised that he won’t be an NFL QB after early January

    What FraudIII really needs is a preferred customer card at a good barbershop so he can look like a human being.

    Look at the best QB in the league, Mr. Russell “real deal” Wilson. He dresses nicely, has a nice haircut, is polite, and carries himself with confidence and grooms himself.

    The FraudIII who the media has overhyped and overrated, and sold that mirage to the simpletons on the East Coast, looks like something from a horror flick.

    Mr. Russel Wilson is the best QB to grace the league since its inception and when he enters the HOF, he will go in as the greatest to ever play, with the most SB titles ever.

    FraudIII will be out of the league in 3 years, holding a coin cup on a Florida off ramp, playing Reggae for change

    Did they at least give Bob the sign?

    That would be a cool thing to put in his driveway.

  15. niners816 says: Jul 2, 2013 2:36 PM

    That’s okay, In a few years he’ll need handicapped parking anyways. #logicalvoiceisthemostannoyingtroll

    I think this is the first of many disappointments for bob griffin this year…

    RGIII pimps Subway. Of course it was an issue.

  18. seaeagle707 says: Jul 2, 2013 2:51 PM

    Looking at those “chicken legs” of his, I doubt that RGIII, goes for roast beef and doughy buns. Seriously, if he doesn’t start to build up some fat and muscle in his legs, he is always going to be the poster boy for “ACL injuries”. :{

    Is this The Onion?

  20. bloomer006999999 says: Jul 2, 2013 2:59 PM

    To be replaced with a sign that reads …

    *Reserved to RGIII, Handicapped Parking Only.*

  21. b3nz0z says: Jul 2, 2013 3:00 PM

    omg i eat at that arby’s. in fact that’s my primary arby’s!

  22. thereisfootballwestofjersey says: Jul 2, 2013 3:01 PM

    I Arby’s really roast beef? #mysterymeat

  23. harrisonhits2 says: Jul 2, 2013 3:10 PM

    Be it RGIII, Russel Wilson, Andrew Luck or any other player that entered the league last year.

    None of these players can be proclaimed anything yet as to best ever, HOF or anything but being very good players.

    Come back in 20 years and lets see if they’re still around.

  24. losangelesbillsofbuffalo says: Jul 2, 2013 3:12 PM

    RGIII only eats roast beef in 2 locations:

    1)Subway for lunch and dinner
    2) his bedroom for desert

    “cannout”? What is this “cannoutbestopped”?

  26. roadtrip3500 says: Jul 2, 2013 3:14 PM

    The reason for the team to request the sign come down looks pretty obvious from that picture… unlicensed use of the logo. We know how the league and the teams go after copyright infringement.

  27. redskin44 says: Jul 2, 2013 3:16 PM

    To all the little Trolls, who somehow got access to a grown ups media device. RGIII, is one of he premiere QB’s in the NFL! You hater trolls also should have had a grown up read the whole article to you! The reason they took down the sign was because they were ask to! They are not a sponsor of RGIII or The Washington RedSkins !! How about it giants , seagulls,and cowpies ?oh an you to little Russell !

    Judging by the spelling and grammatical errors, I would say someone else “got access to a grown ups media device”, too. Someone isn’t paying attention in school, obviously.

    And I’m a Giants fan, for the record. What, no gut-busting hilarious nickname for them, like “cowpies”? That was a knee-slapper!

    what i want to know is why the onion bun is only available on the beef (or now turkey) and cheddar.
    what if i want an onion bun with a chicken club? or on a french dip? i gotta get out of here, i’m starving.

    Wait a minute, John Mara sneaked onto the field in that playoff game and took out RG’s knee? How did his cheating ways end your crappy teams season? Are you going to come on here and cry your little eyes out when you lose again this year? Boo Hoo Hoo little Redbird fan. HaHaHaHaHa Theeeeee Redskins Suck!

  34. albertmn says: Jul 2, 2013 4:16 PM

    Not the only spot HGHIII will lose. Cousins will be the starter in Washington because HGHIII won’t stay healthy.

    Shouldn’t that say fuzzy bunny parking for RGknee?

    Sounds like another salary cap violation to me. Hey John….take another $17M from them ok? cool.

  38. thefootballgodssay says: Jul 2, 2013 4:32 PM

    whats the other side of the sign say HANDICAP PARKING ONLY

  39. trollingforjustice says: Jul 2, 2013 4:34 PM

    Dan Snyder wasn’t making any profit from this so the front office had to step in and squash it

  40. giantssb42champs says: Jul 2, 2013 4:38 PM

    Subway won’t be happy to hear he’s been cheating on them.

  41. trollingforjustice says: Jul 2, 2013 4:52 PM

    In order to get a reserved parking spot it cost…..A “FIVE DOLLAR FOOT LONG”

  42. sammyias says: Jul 2, 2013 5:00 PM

    Arby’s at one time was fairly decent, now it is a bun with meat painted on the inside.

    Bun – 10oz
    Meat – 2oz

    3/4 pounder.

    RGIII is too good for Arbys, I don’t blame him, or the Skins.

  43. dagrizzman says: Jul 2, 2013 8:11 PM

    Big deal,he’s the savior now,just wait until Shanahan tears his knee up again.He’s an ego maniac and will come back with something to prove,only one problem – - he’s not AP!

  44. paredskinwarrior1985 says: Jul 3, 2013 1:47 PM

    guess rg3 must love his subway fresh lunch meast better than arbys lunch meat lol

  45. skinsfansince71 says: Jul 6, 2013 2:46 PM
