Ochocinco 2010...Let the Fines Begin...

The NFL's King of All Media, Chad Ochocinco has already begun his accumulating of the fines from the NFL League Office.

Ocho...who is a certified Media whore, is also one of the more savvy marketers in the NFL. Not only did he have his own reality show on VH-1 (though pretty much anyone whoever made a headline can do that), he is huge on Twitter and Facebook. He also has the self titled OCNN which was the source of a few entertaining bits earlier this year at the Super Bowl.

So, it should come as no surprise that Ocho has gotten his first fine of the 2010 season. This time, it's a $25,000 hit for Tweeting during last weeks exhibition game vs. the Philadelphia Eagles.

More from Bengals beat writer Joe Reedy RIGHT HERE

While we understand the league's stance on this, we also get where Ochocinco is coming from as well. As much as the NFL would like to not have this happen, it's going to. And really, the two Tweets were hardly revelatory.

We, well at least here in the Satellite office, kind of enjoy the antics of 8-5. He's good for the game. Sure he  tweaks the stodginess of the NFL, but is that such a bad thing. It's not like the guy is beating his wife or running over people while drunk....

Here is Chad having a good laugh on Jimmy Kimmel Live and tweaking our friends at The Big Lead: (Yes, we know he doesn't have clothes on in this skit)
