Yes but we are not rich. Taco bell or not Taco bell. Also, being a coach, I would be very annoyed with him on my offense. Yes the productivity is good, but the issues he brings and sideshow that comes with his production wouldnt be worth it. But then again, that's my opinion. If the staff can handle all that and it seriously doesn't bother them in the least bit, then more power to them.

Ah, the old philosophy of those who are rich should stop trying to make money. Why must we always attempt to rationalize a person's desire to make money on our standard of rich?

I would probably get over it when he put up 1100 yards for me.

You go ahead and take the lesser player. I'll take the production. You trade CJ for Shaun McDonald straight up, I bet it goes poorly for the Bengals.

Who cares if it bothers them? Let them hate the dude and everything he stands for. But for God's sake, throw him the ball. Good things happen.

Who said I want Shaun D? And yea you can mitigate pruduction via group of people then just one person. My team proved that with Barber retiring. More than half of our offense was build on him. Run the ball with Tiki, throw the ball to tiki, and the rest find some WRs to throw to. He left, and we managed to not skip a beat. So all that production is nonsense. You can find production else where if you develop your WRs properly. I have no clue who is their WRs corps, but i am talking in general using my team, who I follow closely, as an example. So you go take his production and the side show that follows, I'll get rid of him, and mitigate the production with different passing concepts, and running concepts. But in the long run it shows the players I don't care how good you are, if you throw your QB under the bus and pose a distraction to the team, you're out of here.

Chad 8:5

I wonder what happens with his old jersey they made, does he have to pay for them, or do they just donate them like the patriots undefeated T-shirts?

This is amazing, the other day my cousin and I were playing madden and he got Chad Johnson and Antonio Gates, but Gates had 85, so my cousin changes Chad Johnson to 85, names him Chad Ocho Cinco, and then changes Antonio Gates to number 3 and names him Antonio Tres... lol...

what if companies start paying people to change their name for advertising purposes. I'd might consider being called 3.75 regular unleaded gas.

my friend actually came up with the idea, he said the owner of sonic's the restraunt should buy the seatle supersonics and make each player legally change their name to an item on the menu. ie: bacon cheeseburger toaster

man... only bad things can come of this.

It's Ocho Cinco because he's called himself "Eight Five" before. Not "Eighty Five."

cuz that is very logical. I could see an explosion in name changes because CJ did it. Hell, I will change my NFLDC name for money any day now.

but i guess being able to read english has its perks. it should be in this thread anway.

I've always wondered that, what happens to jerseys of players that just don't sell. Im sure there was a bunch of Vick jerseys left over that no one would want, even on big discounts. I could see someone with very little money buying a Johnson jersey at a good discount. It might be out of date, but he still plays for the Bengals and they'll be a ton of people who still have that jersey so you won't look out of place and people wouldn't know you bought it after he changed his name. With Vick no, definitly not.

Whether he meant to or not, Chad has made a very strong point about the NFL's restrictions. It turns out it's easier to legally change your name than to put what you want on your back during a game.

What "standards" should an organization based around the entertainment value of large men slamming into each other at high speeds have regarding what those men want their identifying name to be? It doesn't hinder the officials, it doesn't hinder other players. All it does is potentially add entertainment value.

That league succeeded solely because it was more entertaining than the NFL. Come on, "He Hate Me"? That's ****ing hilarious. I'm still laughing.

Yes it would. It would hinder the continuation of the game.

The length of games is a continuing battle that teams fight. Networks are only willing to allow games a certain amount of air time. Allowing 5 minute celebtrations for every score would change the act of watching the game completely, not to mention the beaurocratic battle that would ensue.

Allowing players to change the names put on the back of their jerseys wouldn't change a thing about the way the game is conducted. It might make the NFL appear less serious, but right now I'd say the NFL is perceived as a bunch of upright control freaks, so that might well improve their image.

Is it ridiculous that it is easier for a player to legally change their name than to get the one stitched on a $200 jersey changed? Absolutely.

The fact that this thread is still going is more than likely a testament as to why he did it :(
