Ochocinco Gets Hit in his Pocket for “Bribe”

The NFL didn’t think Chad Ochocinco’s attempted “bribe” was funny at all as No. 85 was fined $20,000 by the league for his $1.00 antic

You can call it the “No Fun League” all you want.  But as soon as Cincinnati Bengals WR Chad Ochocinco playfully tried to bribe an NFL official with a $1.00 bill during a replay in the third quarter of his team’s win over the Baltimore Ravens last week, you knew No. 85 was going to get a call from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.  Though the official quickly put the kibosh on the situation, it didn’t take long for the NFL to fine the Bengals audacious receiver. 

On Friday, it was learned that the league had indeed handed down fine to Ochocinco to the tune of $20,000 for his mock bribe and for using the word “bribe” in his post-game comments.  Some may find Ocho Cinco’s antics funny or hilarious—personally I think he is a self-promoter who needs to watch Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald to see what a true “Future H.O.F” looks like.  But obviously the NFL wants no part of any assumption of bribery, or game-fixing in their midst…even if it is another prank from the league’s court jester.
