Super Ochocinco

Love him or hate him, you have to admit that Chad Ochocinco is one hell of a character. As news travels around about player safety and pundits popping up with opinions every 5 minutes it was nice to actually hear someone support the NFL Commish for doing what he thinks is right.

It is probably even more amazing when that support comes from a brash wide receiver diva who has been fined a ton for not following the rules. And it is:

Many of you know I have a father-son relationship with Roger Goodell. I love him and just had to reach out to him with all that is going on. We are at a crucial point in the history of football. The foundation of the game is in jeopardy based on all these factors and the future of the game is going to be shaped by him.


Dear Dad,
I know it has been a rough week, so I wanted to reach out. Players dying, players suing and on top of that my peers are just going off on you in the media. It does not help that ESPN has all of a sudden become Medical TV with damn near every brain expert on the planet. This has got to be the worst week[s] ever. Since no one is showing any support, I figured I would be the first. You are in one big-ass catch 22 and quite frankly, I am not sure there is any solution. One thing I think can help is killing the NFL PR machine.

Y'all do a darn near perfect job at portraying this game as one played by heroes.

But let's be real dad. This is a nasty, dirty and violent game with consequences. Sign up or go get a regular job. Watch it or turn off the TV and go fishing with your kids. It is really that simple. I know there are probably legal and financial implications that prevent this blunt depiction, but am not sure if you have a choice. If you don't say it now, the mounting evidence being revealed publicly will say it for you very soon. In all, I love you and if anyone can lead us out of this mess, it will be you. Oh by the way, I have a deal for you. Am having a rebound year and plan to do a lot of celebrating in the end zone. Can my fine money go to supporting ex-players suffering?




Very interesting and thought provoking. To start with, why does he call him Dad? Do they really have a father-son relationship? Maybe he thinks he is Luke Skywalker to Roger's Vader. Chad Skywalker? It does have a nice ring to it.

I do like that he offers his fine money to go for ex-players suffering. It would be awesome if all the odd fines for TD celebrations, mouthing off to ref's, and brutal hits went into a fund each year that was then rolled over to the retired NFL players. Think of it like the NFL's swear jar!

Goodell hasn't responded yet, but I think he should. He should write a response letter to his son and let him know he appreciates the support. It might help open the door for more positive relations. Plus it could be pretty damn funny.
