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.
when's the last time someone got fined just for jawing?

and back to the subject

Goodell's page has been updated hahaha

Re: ochocinco fined $20,000

Roger Goodell has also been criticized for his overly-rigid attitude towards players. First he took away the ability for players to celebrate touchdowns with props and just recently he fined Chad Ochocinco for pretending to offer an official a $1 bribe.

it's like wiki was reading my mind

Re: ochocinco fined $20,000

Personnaly I think he tries to immitate TO.

But as far as the NFL applying some type of disciplinary action to a professional athlete that "fakes a bribe to an official" is appropriate. What would happen if he were to wave money in front of a judge? (not that that is an exact analogy).

And if the league does nothing, what's the next "fake bribe"...100$, something even more inappropriate.

Don't get me wrong. I love'd the fun bunch, the smurfs and all the end zone celerabrations of the past but pretending to bribe an official is very different than celebrating a good play.

If you take out any personal biases or agenda you have against Ochocinco then how can you justify a $20,000 fine for his action?

Re: ochocinco fined $20,000

Well, he's hitting the cap for about $6.5Million this year so for him I doubt $20k has much of an impact financially.
So the real question (I'm assuming) is whether or not $20K is an appropriate fine?
Not the fact that the action should result in a fine....?

Re: ochocinco fined $20,000

By this fine, I meant the specific fine charged to ochocinco( aka 20k). I never said a fine was right or wrong. So booyah.

And read my first post in this thread as to why I think 20k is more than fair. I have nothing personal against him at all. Anyone who brings money to the ref like that should be fined. The fact it was a joke doesn't matter.

Good luck to Chad. I hope he doesn't ever have to do the coin toss. After all, if he hands the coin back to the referee they might fine him another $20k.

And as far as this weekend goes, I think excessive celebration is handing a cheerleader two balls, not one...

20k is nothing. Bud Adams just got a $250,000 fine for this

Damn, $125K per bird.. That's steep but at least it's consistent.

I'm not sure that trading one stupid name for another stupid name is a step forward, even if we disregard the basics of Spanish grammar.

Re: ochocinco fined $20,000

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell told Adams of the fine today. Goodell was at the game and sat with Adams for part of it but was reportedly sitting in the stands among the fans at the time that Adams flipped the birds.

maybe it was worth it?
