The Washington Redskins are no strangers to using the legal system to get what they want, like in 2009 when the team sued its own season-ticket holders, including a 72-year-old grandmother who was hit hard during the recession. 

Not much has changed since then. Not even the Redskins' No. 2 overall pick in the 2000 NFL draft, LaVar Arrington, is immune to the Redskins' legal arm. 

The three-time All-Pro linebacker for the Redskins was ordered to "cease and desist" marketing himself as a Redskins "great": 

The Redskins had an issue with Arrington's flier for his football camp: 

The retired linebacker had a little fun with a Twitter rant directed at the Redskins and their pettiness: 

The real kicker here is that Arrington was voted as a member of the "80 Greatest Redskins" by a panel of former players and media. Not even a player named a "great" by the team itself can call himself that. 

Way to go, Redskins.
