Chad Ochocinco Fined $20,000 For $1 Bribe Gimmick

Chad Ochocinco’s latest bit of on-field amusement will reportedly cost him 20 grand, via Chris Mortensen:

Reported to ESPN: OchoCinco fined $20,000 for “bribe” action. Not just $1 prop but post-game comment using word “bribe.”

For reference: That’s $5,000 more than Falcons coach Mike Smith was fined for instigating a fight with a player.

And while we’re here, did you catch the sneak preview of Michael Irvin’s interview with Ochocinco on NFL Network during halftime last night? It. Looks. Awesome.

I believe they said it will air in-full Sunday morning during pregame. If you miss it, YouTube will surely have you covered.
