No, no, no...

You have only 2 "1's" after your name, and they are contaminated by a 0 and a 9. Just don't even talk to me... It's just embarrasing.

I heard that and at first thought they called him Archie Griffin. I was thinking both won the Heisman but come on. :)

you cant just call him Robert Griffin because that would be refering to his grandfather .. he is the 3rd... so his full name is Robert Griffin the Third...
just like Ken Griffey Jr had to be called Junior because if you didnt add the Junior to it you would be refering to his father

I can see where that would be confusing. "Robert Griffin throws to Garcon..." People would be asking what the heck, did RG3 throw that pass, or did his grandfather?

Actually with Griffey, they only called him "Junior." Wasn't that even MORE confusing? How the heck many "Juniors" are out there? Who caught that fly ball? Which Junior?

How is anyone supposed to know which Bob you meant? When you said "Bob" I had no idea you meant Bob 0119. Shouldn't you use his full name?

Weren't they both (the Griffeys) playing in the league at the same time at one point?

Does that it's his father really matter? How's that different then if any two other players have the same name? If the announcer says "Ken Griffey" and you're like, wait, another Ken Griffey is on an another team, which one are they talking about? In this case, OK, they could say Junior, but what if they aren't related. Big issue there...

Yes, I noticed that too. Finally the moratorium on RG3 is lifted?

And for the record, they can say Robert Griffin The Third over saying Rex Grossman all day long...
