Some Bengals Fans Are Done With Ocho Cinco
When you are throwing a franchise under a bus — a franchise that’s given you a great deal of leeway when it comes to on-field antics — remember, you are throwing the fanbase under the bus as well. To say Chad Johnson was a fan-favorite would be like saying Michael Jordan could play basketball. While correct, it doesn’t quite capture the magnitude of either subject.
Chad Johnson’s jerseys sold like hot cakes to the Cincinnati faithful (yes, there are some) and now that he’s decided he’s bigger than the franchise, at least one of these fans has had enough.
Good luck trying to get out of the Queen City, Chad. It’s obvious the potential salary cap hit means more to Bengals front-office than your happiness does. Besides, I’m still trying to figure out what’s going on inside the mind of a receiver who would risk going to a bad team without a proven quarterback over catching passes from Carson Palmer.
That just doesn’t make a whole lot of sense; much like the Monday Night Football/Hall of Fame jacket Johnson donned last season.
Update: Using Chad Johnson jerseys as fuel for a fire isn’t the only thing being done with them. SBB has more.
