Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson is at it again.

The freaky gold-grilled man-child is doing his damnedest to be the Dennis Rodman of the NFL.

Ochostinko has said that he is going to "tweet" (post on Twitter) during games this season.

The NFL told him no.

He said "he gunna do it anyway."

His exact quote according to Yahoo sports was, "There's a lot of things they don't want me to do. I do it anyway. They know that. I don't know why they even fussing about it. ... When I say I'm going to do something, I'm going to do it, regardless of what they say."

He reminds me of Eric Cartman on South Park when he says, "You caan't tell me whaat to do. I do whaat I waant!"

Yup, he sounds like an eight-year old, cartoon brat. Precisely.

I believe very strongly in a person's right to self expression, free-speech and civil liberties.

I come from the school of, "I may not agree with what you do, but I will defend to the death your right to do it."

But come on Chad! What, are you going to be sprinting off of the line of scrimmage with a laptop, or a Blackberry?

This could be bad. Your going to get hurt!

I know he will most likely be on the bench when he is "tweeting."

Not going over plays.

Not discussing schemes or game plans.

In other words, not doing his job.

Simple as that stinko.

You are being paid to do a job, so leave your tweet at home.
