$1 Costs Ochocinco $20,000

ochocincocashUnamused by his attempt to “bribe” the refs during a replay timeout with $1, the NFL has handed Chad Ochocinco with a $20,000 fine.

“I was just being me,” Ochocinco told the NFL Network after the game. “I wasn’t going to do it for real.”

Too bad for Chad, the NFL doesn’t want him to be him citing the rulebook which “prohibits use of abusive, threatening or insulting language or gestures toward game officials. He was also in violation of Rule 12, Section 3, Article 1 (f) of the Playing Rules which prohibits possession or use of extraneous objects that are not part of the uniform during the game on the field or sideline.” They also took umbrage at his using the word “bribe” during the post-game press conferences. A high ranking NFL employee told ESPN that “essentially [in Ochocinco’s postgame comment] he made an admission against his own interest. The integrity of the game is critical to us. Making light of bribing and gambling will not be taken lightly. His action in itself merited the fine but he acknowledged by his comments that he knew what he was doing.”

The company that made Ochocinco’s iPhone app announced that because of the fine they would be donating $20,000 to the Hillview Acres home for abused children in Chino, California.

Today, on his Twitter account Ochocinco continue to play up his antics tweeting:  “Barrack I’ve just been fined again, can we meet to set up a fun rule please. I can’t go to mcdonalds for 2 weeks now.”



Chad Ochocinco Lays Down the Rules

There isn’t an NFL player more actively involved in self-promotion and social networking than the Bengals’ Chad Ochocinco. When not torching defenses, Chad is all about himself, he is able though to have some fun doing it, like this rule he posted in his locker and then tweeted.

That note is laminated; clearly Chad spent some time on this, this wasn’t an impromptu notice. Also, according to his Twitter, Chad is playing Call of Duty on his Xbox and wants people to play with, his XBox name is Esteban 85.

Track Ochocinco’s Every Movements With Your iPhone

chadjohnsonpicFINALLY! Fans who weren’t satisfied with his exploits on Twitter, UStream and myriad other modern communication services now have ANOTHER way to follow Chad Ochocinco and his exploits — like paying hookers with checks that bounce — his own iPhone app.

Developed with the aid of Bengals backup QB (and brother of starter Carson) Jordan Palmer fans can, for the low price of $4.99 follow everything Ochocinco does, from his tweets, photos and videos to asking advice on dating or whatever. They can also send him their own photos and track where he is each day he’s on the road.

Palmer, who started an iPhone app company somewhat recently considers this app to be their most ambitious yet. He also said that they are in the process of making a similar app for fellow loud-mouth receiver Terrell Owens.



Times are Tough in Cincinnati

The Cincinnati Bengals are woeful, their 1-8 record only belies their ineptitude. You’d think after so many years that the Bengals faithful would be used to it, accepting of their position as the bottom feeders of the NFL. Sure there was that one teaser year when Carson Palmer was good and the team was in the playoffs, but as has become quickly apparent, that was the aberration, rather than a sign of things to come. In a desperate attempt to no longer be laughingstocks, some fans in Cincy have bought 4 billboards around town with this message:

Good luck Bengals fans. You have another 15-26 year losing streak coming up. I suggest drinking. I find whiskey helps.
