Default Chad Johnson fined, HUGE!

For his joke of a 'bribe' last Sunday vs. the Ravens, the NFL has fined CJ $20,000.

Personally, considering what the NBA went through with bribes a couple seasons ago, the NFL wants to crack down on this right away.

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

As I said in another thread, it would be REALLY funny if Chad---while trying to be funny with the "bribe" of $1----would get fined $15,000.
$20,000 is even better

No problem with it. While I thought it was funny, I figured he would get a huge fine. The NFL doesn't want anyone thinking that the refs are being/can be bribed.

Their goal with this fine was to send a message. But CrotchoStinko is probably too dumb to get the message.

He had to know it was going to bring a fine. I mean, at least it was only a Single and we can all see the humor in it. Imagine if he had broke out with a $100 bill, he'd have been suspended for that.

It was a joke, he knew he'd get in trouble for it, 20G will prevent other guys from trying the same type of thing. Don't involve the officials in any nonsense, that's like Rule one in how to get fined.

What an imbecile. He's gotten away with so much shit since he permeated the league with his presence - it's good to see the NFL finally nail the ugly little moron.

Truth! It's one thing to get players involved in your little dog-and-pony show, but an official? That just screams "Dumba**!"

He is definitely an attention *****. I thought it was a slap in the face of every official in the game. If I had been that ref. I would have thrown him out of the game.

I get as angry at the refs as anyone, and some shouldn't even be working, but as a whole most are doing the best they can in a league that doesn't even know itself what it wants to do. Except of course protect Tom Brady. (Thank You Commissioner.) They do not deserve for some spoiled loud mouth, half baked idiot to even jokingly imply that they can be bought.

He can send his teeth to "Cash for Gold" to offset the loss.
