Well it could be worse he could try and change it to "Seis Nueve"


Chad Johnson really wants 'Ocho Cinco' on his jersey
And since the NFL won't be adopting an XFL-like "Wear whatever you want on the back of your jersey" policy anytime soon, Chad's got two options: 1) Wear "Ocho Cinco" on the back of his jersey and pay massive fines every time he does it, or 2) actually have his name legally changed to "Ocho Cinco."

According to Pro Football Talk, Chad has "taken the first steps in the state of Florida toward legally changing his last name to Ocho Cinco."

I don't know what to tell you here. This isn't a normal guy. Maybe that's good, maybe that's bad ... I'm in no position to judge. As I've said before, I believe that Chad just likes to make noise with his mouth, and has little or no concern for the meaning of the words that might come out of it (and here's more bizarre evidence of that).

If the name change did actually happen, I don't know if I could bring myself to actually call him Ocho Cinco. On one hand, people have the right to be called whatever they want, but on the other hand, I don't feel like I'm doing Chad Johnson any favors by indulging his megalomaniacal whims.

You know, If your child comes to you one day and says, "Daddy, I want to be called 'Xontar, the Andromeda Galaxy's Prince of Pounding Spaghetti-O's'," I don't think it's in the best interests of the child if you enroll him in school as "Xontar, the Andromeda Galaxy's Prince of Pounding Spaghetti-O's."

He's a kid. It's a phase. And I'm not sure that we're dealing with any greater emotional capacity here with Chad.

Ron Artest and Chad Johnson should psycho-analyze each other.

That's awesome.

As far as I'm concerned, Chad Johnson is right where he belongs - running his mouth and goofing up a Divisional rival. Keeps me entertained.

If only he were in Cleveland...


(More importantly: if only Ron Artest had stayed in Chicago, I might have found him entertaining as well.)

Ron Artest and Chad Johnson should psycho-analyze each other.

That would create a black hole of crazy and swallow the earth in the process.

Technically, he should change it to "ochenta y cinco" because that's 85. "Ocho cinco" is the numbers 8 and 5. I guess the latter has a better ring to it.

This article has nothing to do with Football. I think Chad should be out recruiting quality offensive lineman so Palmer has enough time to throw him the deep ball.

It will be even better if he's traded to a team where he can't wear 85.

He could always quit football and swim, since he told PTI he can beat Phelps.

I hope he does this just so no one will ever take him seriously again. The guy isn't a football player, he is a clown.

Him and many other of his home town friends, since they never got a chance. :rolleyes:

He should change it to "give me the darn ball" at least I hope so since I drafted him in my fantasy leage to go along with Hines Ward and Reggie Wayne as my other two recievers.

Last night on the news the sportscaster dubbed him "Oucho Cinco" after he supposedly injured him shoulder on a play he also coughed up the ball, leading to a turnover. The other newscasters burst into laughter.

It was both funny and a little weird.
