The heavy hand of the NFL has slapped Chad Ochocinco again. This time to the tune of $20K for his on-field entertainment.
Chad Ochocinco has been fined $20,000 by the NFL for flashing a dollar bill at an official during a replay challenge — a joking attempt at a “bribe” — in last week’s Bengals-Ravens game, team and league sources tell ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen.
The NFL also cited the Bengals wide receiver’s use of the word “bribe” in his postgame comments to reporters.
“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 that the NFL is just being themselves too, and they are going to do it for real. It being taking that mula.
