Default ochocinco-attempts-to-bribe-refs

its true and hes cheep $1 not going to get you far heres the link

http://backporch.fanhouse.com/2009/1...-bribe-refs%2F

"You saw that?" Ochocinco said after the game. "I was going to give them a dollar just to bribe them. 'Just give me the call, give me the catch, we need this one.'

"I might get fined. Mr. [Roger] Goodell, I'm sorry. I'm just having fun."

Can't blame him...with the diminishing skills he can really use all the help he can get.

Wouldn't it be funny if he gets suspended one game ( Steelers ) because of that .

At first I thought that he had made a bet with someone on his team that it was a good catch...then I realized that he was just being his usual douchey self.
He should get a large fine ----pull out a dollar and pay the league $15,000. Now that would be funny

Gotta admit,

I found it funny. I think a phone call from the league would be enough, just to say, "Hey, with the point shaving scandal in the NBA and how the touchiness of blown calls, let's no throw fuel on the fire"

We all know its a joke. But if that phone call doesn't happen, something WILL happen, it inevitably, it will look bad.

I think the interview might hurt him worse because he used the word "bribe"...i heard this on espn too.

Since he said bribe i would say i fine is probably going to happen, but i really dont care what they do to him ive learned to just ignore anything he does.

I agree. I like Chad... it's nice to see a player that truely enjoys playing, and has fun with the game. I know he's not liked around here, but I think the league could use a hell of a lot more guys like Chad.
