Most people that know Chad Ochocinco have strong feelings about him. He is either the kind of guy that you love, or the kind of guy that you just cannot stand. After hearing what Chad has decided to do, many people might change the way they feel about the Bengals wide receiver.

Recently, Chad has decided to give away tickets to all of the Bengals home games for his fans. Before each home game, he is going to have a contest where he will ask a question that people will have to answer correctly. If they get it correct, they will have their name thrown into a hat and chosen at random. If you are the person chosen, he will have you flown down to Cincy for the weekend, where you can enjoy the game on Sunday.

By Chad doing something like that, he is showing that he can use his popularity in the correct way. He is using it to benefit other people, and it shows that he is not all about himself. I really respect that from a guy who many feel is all about himself. He has been criticized on multiple occasions for being a distraction to his team, but by doing this he has shown that he has grown up and really matured.

If his character is truly as good as it seems, the Bengals could have a better season than most people expect. Having him in line with the rest of his teammates can be the difference between a good season and another disappointment for the Bengals
