When it comes to football here in Washington, the talk is all about Redskin Quarterback Robert Griffin III and how his surgically repaired knee will hold up when regular season play begins. But I think there’s an ethical issue that needs to be addressed, and I’m inviting you to weigh in.
If all goes according to schedule, RGIII will take the first snap on Sept. 9 when the Skins open the season against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Skins will obviously do whatever they can to protect their star quarterback, knowing a single punishing hit could easily end his season—and his career.
Opposing players, on the other hand, have no reason to show him mercy, but what exactly does that mean? Would it be ethical for them to go out of their way to try to reinjure that tender knee? Take our poll and let us know what you think.
