wheres the fun part of it, they risk their health and life for the league. And then when they just wanted some little fun in celebrating, they get fine. I can understand the league don't want any items to bring with them, but at the same time, whats the harm in the way he celebrated?? It's not like he pulled out some gun and pretend to shoot or anything like that. But I guess it is what it is.

Why do the Bungles continue to put up with this diva's crap? He's not even that great of a receiver. Cut this guy loose!

Better yet, trade "Ochocinco" to either one of these teams. Both have #85 retired. What are you going to do then?

Detroit - Chuck Hughes
St. Louis - Jack Youngblood

Actually, trading Chad to either one of these teams would be like pouring salt into an open wound!

I'd say bribing refs is cheaper than putting on an outfit. So go with the Bribe more often!!

I think the NFL hates Mexicans and therefore are charging Ochocinco that amount. Its a stab at us. If he would have put a suit on or a white robe, Roger Goodell would have given him a bonus.
