Re: ochocinco fined $20,000

The fine seems a bit steep, perhaps it's due to him being a repeat offender?

I don't mind Ocho, if you follow him on twitter you'll see he's actually a good cat, very generous too. He'll tweet that he's going to the movies and anybody that shows gets in free, and he'll post a pic of him and like 50 people hanging out.

I'd trade Portis for Ochocinco any day of the week!

I think if CJ were here, he'd be another DeAngelo Hall, there would be fans with agendas bitching and whining about everything he would (and wouldn't) do.

On a related note, so Goodell is telling me that what CJ did is similar to what Mike Smith did, hence the same amount of $$ fined?

CJ's fine has to be an escalation for repeat offenses like Matty said. No way that CJ's was worse then Mike Smith's.

it may very well be escalation, but still too high imo, i'm just not happy with goddell's overall handling of the league the past few year i really miss the way the league was run back in the 80's, just seemed like it was alot more fun back then, he has made some good moves but overall i'm not a fan, and don't even get me started on his stupid ass obbsession with the nfl being in europe, lame

Damn, borrowing a dollar from an assistant coach ends up costing you 20 grand. No fun league indeed

Re: ochocinco fined $20,000

This is a retarded amount for a fine. First of all, he didn't actually bribe the ref, he never got to him. It was a dollar...come on. I can't stand this guy, and most of his fines were right on, but not this one.
Sportscenter was right on, how can Hall not get fined for his altercation with the falcons sidelines, and Mike Smith get a 15000 fine for his actions, but Chad Johnson (I will not call him by the name he made up) gets 20k? Nope...not right.

Re: ochocinco fined $20,000

NFL = No Fun League.

I'm not down for elaborate endzone celebrations, but come on. Like a few weeks ago where the Raiders player got fined for going down to his knees to praise God? He got fined for that because of some rule that's like "You can't leave your feet for a TD celebration" (something to that affect) Obviously there's a line between celebrating and unsportsmanlike/taunting but there's also a line between being a reasonable disciplinarian/supervisor and being a no fun dbag. Goddell is hovering over to that dbag side.

Re: ochocinco fined $20,000

This was classic overkill from the stiffs in the NFL offices. He did something for a laugh, clearly with no intent to impugn the integrity of the game or imply the refs can be bought. It's just another example of Goodell being overly aggressive and heavy handed in his handling of player related issues. He's going to be the reason for a lockout in 2 years. The more I see of his regime, the less I care for him.
