    Tank Johnson was once fined $7,500 for punching a guy on the field.

    this is obviously a much bigger problem.

    Isn't than an oxymoron? Lighten up, Marv. Football is entertainment, not world peace.

    I might be in the minority here, but I thought it was funny although I realize you can't have football players throwing $$ at referees ergo, the league can't let Ochocinco get away with it. That doesn't make it any less funny.

    Marvin Lewis is just looking after his own ass, he's a mouthpiece and an *****.

    I think he might have hit home a little. Maybe he should have just glared at the official instead, like some other players do.

    Maybe he should have said, "here this is from the Texans so they don't get jobbed like a midget at a Miami bowling ally."

    Well, maybe I'm really in the minority here, but I think the $20,000 punishment totally fits the utter stupidity of the crime.

    I mean, taking out a dollar and waving in front of the official??? How stupid is that?

    Why can't these dipshits keep their mouths shut, put a lid on the dumb antics, and go out and play like professionals?

    It seems to work for Andre Johnson. What's their problem.

    Why did he have a dollar bill on the field? I wouldn't think football players during a pro football game have too many reasons to carry cash. Do those pants even have pockets? Do they have to pay for each cup of gatorade? :rake:

    Apparently he borrowed it from someone in the stands.

    Between the cell phone stunt and his other BS, ol' Chad must be pushing $100,000 in League Fines.

    He will get most of it back when he files his taxes. Since they are charitable contributions, he probably does it to earmark certain charities. Realistically, though improper, any buying of favors are done behind closed doors and for a lot more money.
