    No Fun League

    OK.

    I get it. I knew Ochocinco would draw a fine from the good people in Roger Goodell's NFL Commissioner office. After all, they're an uptight bunch. So I anticipated a slap on the wrist.

    But come on.

    Ochocinco Fined 20K for Attempted 'Bribe'

    Appearance of impropriety? Conduct unbecoming of an NFL player? Can anyone take a joke these days?

    So I suppose if I walk up to a policeman, waive a dollar bill, and say with a smile... "say, you think this will get me a free pass?" that I'm now bribing a police officer? People need to take a step back, take a deep breath and gain some perspective.

    I doubt very seriously citizens and fans of the N.F.L. are ignorant enough to think that because Chad jokingly flashed a one dollar bill, that suddenly he or the league officials are suddenly more susceptible to bribery or gambling. What a ridiculous stance by the No Fun League commissioner's office.

    Here's what I wanted to know. Who gave him the $1 bill? I assume Chad didn't bring it out with him from the locker room? So who on the sideline has Chad come up to them and say "Hey man give me a $1 and I'll give it to the ref. That will be funny." and says, "Sure, this will work."
    When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
