Ochocinco Pays Fine, Calls Out Roger Goodell
Last week, Chad Ochocinco was picking himself off of the ground at Raymond James Stadium after getting hit during a preseason game by Tampa Bay linebacker Mason Foster. Afterward, Ochocinco made a great gesture and gave commissioner Roger Goodell a unique nickname.
Following Mason Foster’s hard hit on Ochocinco, Chad posted on Twitter, “great hit last night,if u’re fined I’ll reimburse u boss.That’s the way the game should b played.Stay healthy n have a good yr.”
Mason Foster ended up getting fined $20,000 for the hard hit. Ochocinco responded by doing what he does best; posting cool stuff on Twitter. Ochocinco wrote to commissioner Goodell on Twitter, “Dad no disrespect but I don’t agree with @mason_foster fine n I’ll be reimbursing him personally. Please feel free to contact me.”
Dad? Wow, that’s gutsy. You’ve got to love some of Chad Ochocinco’s antics. It’ll be interesting to see how the NFL responds though. The whole point of fining players for hitting defenseless players, is to encourage them not to hit defenseless players. If players like Chad Ochocinco are picking up the tab, I can see how the NFL would object.
