      Didn't the whole Redskins team wear the #21 after Sean Taylor's death, or at least something to that affect. It is bull if they fine him for that.

        Meh, I cant blame people for getting upset with the way certain things are being run by the commissioner. Most people that defend chad look past the whole rules thing because his intentions arent really anything bad, but more of a having fun/fooling around type manner, however if they let one do it, theyd have to let everyone do it so yeah it makes sense to keep fining the guy.

          I think they all wore his number in the ProBowl.

            Didn't they wear T-shirts that had the number 21 on it under their jerseys too? I think I remember one of their receivers lifting his jersey up after a TD.

              No, it isn't. It was put into place that you could not go low on a QB after Carson Palmer tore his ACL in 2005. The rule as in place that next off-season. (feel free to search the internet. It's been a part of carson palmer's wiki page for quite some time.)

              The owners got together, discussed the rule, and had the competition committee to remind the referees it existed after the Brady hit which was fairly obviously a violation that should have been flagged. The emphasis was added after Brady was taken down. All roughing the passer fouls are up this year though and they were last year.

              ------
              As far as consistency, that's why I said that to break rules, you should need the leagues "permission". The players can cry about the league showing favoritism to players all they want, but given extenuating circumstances, I think you should at least allow the league to make exceptions. Lots of groups do this (the motion to suspend rules is one every moderator knows all about).
              **** her in da *****!

Chad and Chris Henry were known to be close. If he wants to wear the jersey and has the incentive to do it, it's a damn good thing. I'm not going to say OH HE'S JUST DOING IT FOR ATTENTION. Was Jake Plummer doing it for attention when he wore the Pat Tillman decal? How dare he. The waterboy at ASU and Tillman were so close.
                He wore a decal, he didn't change his entire jersey for him. Again, all I'm saying is that there are likely a bunch of guys who would love to wear his jersey on Sunday. Plus, if you let Chad wear his jersey for the game, the story of the game would shift from "look, the Bengals are honoring their former teammate" to "look how Chad Johnson is honoring his former teammate."

                  i think we're overreacting to the rule bc of a death quite honestly.

                  rules are rules. the league needs to establish parameters, and make them black and white. bc once you enter that grey space for any rule, you start opening up the grey space for all the rules. and that can't be had.

                  For want of a nail, the horseshoe was lost. For want of a horseshoe, the steed was lost. For want of a steed, the message was not delivered. For want of an undelivered message, the war was lost.

                  yes, i totally stole that from the Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift.

                  but the point remains, you can't go around bending rules for certain situations. its not fair to the rules.

                  remember before Goodell (and prior to him to a certain extent, Tagliabue) made his changes? how stupid some of the nonsense in the league was? he cleaned up a lot of garbage. whole teams running into the endzone and celebrating touchdowns. guys celebrating touchdowns when theyre down by 21. a lot of the changes are good for the game.

                    Not wanting to be a distraction, @OGOchocinco won't wear 15 today. He'll have a 15 jersey with him, and 15 will be on his heart and mind.

                        We (or atleast I) are not complaining about the rules, but the fact that the NFL can't make an exception here. It's a good rule, but it doesn't make sense why this can't be made an exception.

                          Brandon Marshall is wearing Henry's name.

There's more important things to worry about when someone dies. Seems to me Ochocinco is just using this as an opportunity to put the focus on himself.

                              I have been going back and forth on this but currently leaning against Chad after watching the TD celebration and more crying. Even if this is how he genuinely feels, he is still using Henry's death to draw a bunch of attention towards himself and it doesn't sit quite right with me.

                                Calm down guys about the NFL making an exception. They are not going to do it, so get over it. If they can bend this rule why can't they do it any other time.

                                And don't give me the NFL doesn't want to honor its players that have died. They have ways in order to honor players and coaches with number on the helmets or patches on the jerseys. Also this has happened before with, OC is not the first on to do this, and i'm sure plenty of players want to do the same. Any one remember Jake Plumber and Pat Tillman?
