Cincinnati Bengals wide-receiver Chad Ochocinco (whose last name used to be Johnson) has stated he will change is name again to Chad NumeroUno despite what NFL commission Roger Goodell has to say about it.
"He can't stop me," Ochocinco said. "He can fine me all I want, I got lots of money." Although no team member currently wears number one on their shirt, Chad says he wants that too. "I'm tired of wearing number 85," Chad quipped. "I am Numero Uno and everyone knows it so what's the problem?"
In 2009, Ochocinco was fined numerous dollars for violating the NFL's twittering laws. "I tweet when I want," said Chad. "I got to respond to my homeboys."
Investigations by the NFL into Ochocinco's tweets found he was actually responding to dancers at the Alaska Bush Club, a strip club frequented by Chad during the off-season.
"I like Alaska so what's wrong with that? We got to get some brothers up there and some good dancers with bigger butts," Chad added.
NFL Commission Roger Goodell could not be reached for a statement but in breaking news, rookie quarterback, Mark Sanchez for the New York Jets says he too is considering changing his name to Joe Namath. "He's my idol," Sanchez said, "he probably wouldn't mind."
More on these NFL name swaps as it becomes available.
