Per ESPN this morning.

Seriously? I think this is way too much. The No Fun League really needs to pull their panties out. I realize that the mere mention of "bribe" is probably what set this off but come on......

Ocho's antics are not a problem. He doesn't rub anything in anyones face and he isn't causing huge problems unlike TO did. Football is all about entertainment so I have no problem with this. I think the only distractions are the ones that the NFL is creating by fining him.

yeah, the NFL hates that behvior so much. So much that the networks immediately zoom in on any player that made any play whatsoever. Networks love it; NFL loves it.

i watched an ESPN classic game the other day from the late 80's; it was refreshing to see a guy make a tackle, and get up and go back to the huddle w/out doing some lame a** WWF 'finishing' move etc. Or see a WR catch a 11 pass and not get up and do a ghey zoro-esque first down motion etc.

I don't know why the NFL gives a shit what endzone dance anybody does or just little fun stuff like this - in fact - if I were them - I would embrace it and market that sh*t.

I am more with this........he doesn't personally attack anybody. His "antics" are always in good fun. The league needs to lighten up. Football is, afterall a game.

The NFL hates those antics so much, they allow the nfl network to continuously show highlights of the incident and now talk about the fine. Hypocrites.

I do think he is a good entertainer, but his focus should be on winning... he's a freaking Bengal, they don't need the sideshow drama.

I have no problems with this one - just nip it in the bud and move on. I think the NFL should be more relaxed in what they allow with celebrations, but something like the bribing stunt - yeah, fine him - it's stupid.

I do agree that some players go overboard.

the late 80's early 90's were the worst. ever watch Flordia State or Alabama back then. They would take helmets off do full team dances. Gold chains outside the uni

For the most part I agree that the NFL should just let guys perform, but I understand where they are coming from on the bribe bit. Just bribery by itself would be a touchy subject that they don't want brought up, but they also can't have players clowning the refs no matter how jokingly.

This is one that was probably warranted. You can't even have a hint of a possibility of bribery regardless of it was a clear joke or not.

The NFL is in a win/win situation.

They know damn well that the players are going to keep doing these elaborate celebrations....and they get to fine the player and make money off of it. It gets money and it gets fans.

What don't you understand?

I'm not saying that I agree with them handing out fines for this shit.....but it's not going to hurt them when this happens. Like fans are going to stop watching the NFL because they're handing out fines to players for excessive celebrations.

Ocho Cinco gets to do his celebrations.....and get fined for it. Fans will watch the game waiting for the next celebration and the NFL will get money off of the player.

20K is nothing to him and it's not a fucking comedy show, it's a game. He's annoying, like his name. Go to a circus if you want to act a fool, otherwise suit up and play ball.

A. The fines go to charity.
B. The multi-billion dollar entity known as the NFL wouldn't care about a measly 20k.

Tell us how you really feel.

But the bolded part makes no sense really. Are you not supposed to have fun and entertain in a game? Like it or not, he's one of the best wrs in the league and he wants to have fun. What's wrong with that? Millions of people love what he does and he's not being disrespectful when he does it. I see nothing wrong with it.

Absolutely, have fun and entertain us by making mind-blowing catches and plays. At this point, I don't find his stupid jokes entertaining in the least bit of ways. No one said he was disrespectful, just giving my opinion... but that 20K could have gone to a charity in need of it... He knew he'd be fined for it, hell I knew the second I saw it. It was DUMB!

Overall I think the way the game was shown was different too. It seemed like there was only like 3 cameras; now it seems like there are 20 to capture every possible dance etc.

I hated Florida State for the reason you mention; still do. But I'm still I 'Bama fan. :D

some do it (celebrate) to coat their ego.

I truly thing CJ does it to add a lil' comedic-value to the game. Plus he's a producer on the field. I think the guy has a good heart.

I saw a little of the HBO Hard Knocks with the Bangels and he is really a funny guy. I do think he loves the game and works really hard. Not sure I really agree with the name change but I am a fan.

The NFL is fucking stupid. The ref was laughing and knew he was joking and like bribing a person with $1 should be considered serious.

This is total FAIL on the NFL's part. They need to pull the dick out of their ass

Chad is not my favorite person but give me a break. I'm sure he would have gladly given 20k for all the media coverage he is going to receive for this.

Punch a player in the head while he's in a defenseless position - $7,500
Complain about calls - get new rules instituted in your favor if you are Tom Brady.
Complain about calls - get fined 20k if you are Jay Cutler.
Jokingly try to bribe a ref with $1 dollar - get fined $20k.

Makes lots of sense.

i'm torn on the celebrations. i think they are funny but i also get the "just play the game" argument. i don't think its such a big deal in this case cause mr ochocinco knows he's gonna get fined, so he's almost voluntarily giving to charity. i hate the rule players can't celebrate with their team mates, i'd rather see guys working together as a team, even if it is celebrating with some stupid choreographed dance. however, the stupid first down celebrations in the second quarter of meaningless games is getting old(except chiefs players since we get first downs at the rate most teams score td's.) just go back to the huddle, the ref can tell me its a first down.
