Robert Griffin III is trademarking himself.The Redskins new quarterback is taking preemptive legal steps to ensure that others dont profit off of his name and his fame, Griffin has formed a company called Thr3escompany, LLC and has has submitted for trademarks to RGIII, RG3, Robert Griffin III, and Unbelievably Believable.Its not as though RG3 wants to collect money every time someone uses his name or nickname in print or on the air. The trademark application specified that he wanted to protect the use of them on shirts, sweatshirts, jackets, pants, shorts, footwear, hats, caps, athletic uniforms.So, if you have had any RG3 T-shirt printed up, you might want to figure out an alternate use for them.The Unbelievably believable phrase comes from his Heisman Trohpy acceptance speech. Here is the full quote:This is unbelievably believable. Its unbelievable because in the moment were all amazed when great things happen. But its believable because great things dont happen without hard work.
