doyner: He should have done this years ago like he promised following being stranded on Revis Island.


There was an issue with reebok when he first changed due to warehouses full of "Johnson" shirts. I'd imagine they've got the same problem again.

chad johnson? why would someone pick a stupid name like that

Because he switched teams, its alright.

"Ochocinco" will still be shouted out in every FFL draft everywhere. He's probably not even draft-worthy any more, but some smartass will take him just to yell it out.

/i'll do it in the 18th if he's still there

Considering the other receivers on the Dolphins he might actually be worth a late-round flier.

Why doesn't he just take his wife's name? She's obviously the one calling the shots.

Well, we only have the NFL to blame for that after they fined him for wearing the Ochocinco name for honoring the Spanish people IN THE FIRST PLACE.

I'm not going to lie, I though he still was with te Pats
 
2012-07-23 04:58:19 PM
Or he could take his wife's name as his first and go with Digger Johnson.

Yes he is. Chad Johnson was fined by the No Fun League as said above than he went full troll and change his name so No Fun League had to let him wear Ochocinco on his jersey.
 
2012-07-23 05:06:48 PM
Meh, he should just be concentrating on actually learning his playbook.
 
2012-07-23 05:07:15 PM
People may hate him, but he's awesome. Just read this on advice to rookies:

It's unfortunate that a lot of my peers have been getting into some serious trouble this off-season. What is it like 28 now? I have lost count. Thus, I figured I would share with you the 6 AFC and NFC acronyms I use to stay out of trouble. Excuse the Ebonics by the way, it is a more fun way to really express how I feel about this.


Alcohol
So you want to get wasted. The dumbest -ish you can do in 2012 is publicly party like it is 99. Mofos in the club will be live tweeting your buffoonery for the world to see. You are in the NFL, making millions and you got a mansion. Bring the party home dammit.

Firearms
No need anymore. We out the hood now. Get a bodyguard if you are still that paranoid.

Crews
A Crew is not needed. Just ask Drake and Chris Brown. Roll solo, it will save you money and trouble.


No man.
Deion Sanders taught me this. You badly need a no man. Someone that tells you what you don't want to hear like

"Are you really finna smoke, drink and of all the cars you got, you gonna drive the Ferrari to the club tonight and carry your gun with you? C'mon fooool, you gonna be on the next flight to go see Goodell"

Keep your NO man closer and yes men farther.

Fallback
You are famous and there are people that will hate and test you. You can't deal with it the way you would when you were in the hood. You need to just fallback.

Consent.
Be careful of chicks and groupies. Those consenting smiles are sometimes fake. Sooner or later you might be defending yourself in a frivolous sexual assault case as she tries to stick you for your paper. Yes, some of these women "Stay Schemin". There is a simple solution. The iPhone has an HD camera now. Make sex tapes all the time. It will make great memories and save you trouble.

If you apply these acronyms, it will save you trips to @nflcommish and you know he ain't playing around these days.

Yours Truly,

Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson

Holy shiat you scared me, I thought he actually died or something.

I don't think they have one of those in Miami.

I endorse this statement. His Twitter use is actually entertaining and used to reach out to fans:

Examples

//I would probably feel differently if he were on a team I supported or hated.

I can't think of anything he's done that would make people who don't hate the Bengals hate him.

I suppose there is a fine that the more "charismatic" WRs need to walk to avoid being annoying, but I don't think he's ever crossed it. He's just entertaining.

As a fan of the team whose star receiver has the personality of Pete Sampras, I could probably get away with being slightly less tolerant, too, at least until Houston brings in someone else to do Andre Johnson's job (which, I hope, won't happen for a few years).
 
2012-07-23 06:58:19 PM
...he made it clear that he wanted to reconnect with his former self...

I'm pretty sure I read that he was only doing this because his girlfriend didn't want to be Mrs. Ochocinco.

Also, I remember watching him in Corvallis when he was Chad Ochocero.

I would have gone with "Ocho Johnson".

Only got as far as Sporting KC's reserve team.

Gotta respect him for trying though.

Is it possible that a man can fully rehabilitate himself in a single day in my eyes? It seems so. In spite of the Ebonics that may be the most intelligent thing I've ever seen a professional athlete say, and he got rid of the clownish name to boot.

You know that every player that read that now hates him for calling them out, right?
 
2012-07-23 11:03:57 PM
He will have more TD's than Brandon Marshall did last year.

What a load. If his intention was to honor Spanish people then he would have used the actual Spanish word for 85, not the bastardization of the language that is 'ochocinco'.

And really, it's more of a (fantastic) mnemonic, using the common initialisms as a base.

/So, PAC (-10) = acronym, but SEC = initialism?

That's splitting hairs. Wikipedia source below, but I imagine it is fairly accurate.

^ Merriam-Webster, Inc. Merriam-Webster's Dictionary of English Usage, 1994. ISBN 0-87779-132-5. pp. 21-2:

acronyms A number of commentators (as Copperud 1970, Janis 1984, Howard 1984) believe that acronyms can be differentiated from other abbreviations in being pronounceable as words. Dictionaries, however, do not make this distinction because writers in general do not:

"The powder metallurgy industry has officially adopted the acronym 'P/M Parts'" -Precision Metal Molding, January 1966.
"Users of the term acronym make no distinction between those pronounced as words ... and those pronounced as a series of characters" -Jean Praninskas, Trade Name Creation, 1968.
"It is not J.C.B.'s fault that its name, let alone its acronym, is not a household word among European scholars" -Times Literary Supp. 5 February 1970.
"... the confusion in the Pentagon about abbreviations and acronyms-words formed from the first letters of other words" -Bernard Weinraub., N.Y. Times, 11 December 1978

Pyles & Algeo 1970 divide acronyms into "initialisms", which consists of initial letters pronounced with the letter names, and "word acronyms", which are pronounced as words. Initialism, an older word than acronym, seems to be too little known to the general public to serve as the customary term standing in contrast with acronym in a narrow sense.

See above, but the dictionary doesn't make that distinction...

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/acronym

a word (as NATO, radar, or laser) formed from the initial letter or letters of each of the successive parts or major parts of a compound term; also : an abbreviation (as FBI) formed from initial letters : initialism

First Clown:
A pestilence on him for a mad rogue! 'a pour'd a flagon

Ochocinco's skull, the King's jester.

Hamlet:
This? [Takes the skull]

First Clown:
E'en that.

Hamlet:
Alas, poor Ochocinco! I knew him, Horatio, a fellow of infinite
jest, of most excellent fancy. He hath bore me on his back a
thousand times, and now how abhorr'd in my imagination it is!
My gorge rises at it.
