Default Chad Ochocinco was fined $10,000 (other NFL fines)

The colorful Cincinnati wideout was fined for wearing the wrong colored chin strap (black) during the Bengals' loss to Houston last Sunday.

Also fined $10,000 was Tennessee Titans safety Chris Hope for roughing-the-passer against New England in a 59-0 loss during which Tom Brady threw for six touchdowns.

San Diego rookie linebacker Larry English was fined $7,500 for a horse collar tackle in the Chargers' loss to Denver on Monday night.

Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma received a $10,000 fine for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Giants quarterback Peyton Manning.

Earlier in the week, the league suspended Carolina safety Dante Wesley one game for launching himself into defenseless Tampa Bay returner Clifton Smith. Wesley will lose $36,000 in salary for the game.

I think it's an escalating scale for wardrobe fines. I'd actually be shocked if this was Ochocinco's first wardrobe fine.

"More recently, anyone familiar with football today knows the name Chad Johnson. He's known for his funny end zone dances and trash talking. This year he was fined for wearing a tribute to his uniform number with an "Ocho Cinco" tag on the back of his uniform prior to the game. He was forced to take it off and pay later on. Also, in the last few weeks he was forced to take off a pair of shoes before a game because he had pictures superimposed on his shoe highlighting his favorite personal end zone celebrations."

Chin strap color?

Does the NFL prescribe a specific color for toilet paper in the johns? 10 grand for hitting Tommy Boy? Well, it is for charity and all.........

The NFL is like that ultra obsessive neat-freak chick that scares the **** out of you.

He's the one that wanted to make a name for himself by tweaking the league's rules against professionalism, now he pays for it. All that "fun" comes with a pricetag, notoriety ain't for free you know.

They should fine him every week just for being an ahole.
