Cincinnati Bengals’ wide-receiver Chad Ochocinco was recently fined $25,000 by the NFL for posting messages on Twitter during a preseason game. In a follow-up tweet, Ochocinco apologized for his actions but noted that it was two months’ worth of payments for his Bugatti Veyron, implying that the fine was a little steep. Or he just wanted a reason to tell the world about how much he spends on one of his cars. The fine stems from an NFL rule that does not allow the use of social media by its players or coaches directly before or after or during a game.

In other news, the Cincinnati Bengals have announced a change to its infamous "Who dey" chant. The new chant goes like so: “Who dey, Who dey, Who dey think gonna tweet in da game with the Bengals? Nobody!” Sorry, we couldn't resist.

maybe the guy should grow up and stop being a child, and not have to 'tweet' during his job. IMO, players like this guy are the ruination of the NFL and professional sports.

I disagree, 85 has embodied the athlete/star persona and actually stays out of trouble when it comes to drugs, violence, etc. It is athletes like Pacman Jones and others similar that ruin sports

my words may have been somewhat harsh in a sense when you bring up the drugs/violence thing. but, i still feel like him and his new buddy TO are turning the NFL into an overly dramatic reality TV show.. which makes me want to puke. i just like seeing professional athletes.... act professional.
