    Nothing like arrogance to keep the name of football interesting.

    What a douche. I don't understand how anyone can like this guy. The league should make him wear a jersey with no name on it.

    Doesn't he have a deal with Nike or something and if he wears something different he is breaching his contract?

    He can't wear "Ocho Cinco" on his jersey because Reebok already had tons of "Johnson" jerseys printed up before he did it, and Chad would have had to pay a large sum to Reebok to make up for their losses of the "Johnson" jerseys.

    Oh then that makes more sense, but if that's the case. But I bet you anything if he's with the Bengals next season, and he's allowed to wear Ocho Cinco, the jersey is going to be one of the best sellers.

    I've read that next year the jersey will reflect the change. The reason it wasn't done this year was the jersey issue due to the short notice. Where ever Chad is next year, his "Ocho Cinco" jersey will sell like crazy. I'll put money on it.
