Not Your FINEst Moment

So this season the NFL is just Fine happy! and the players are violation happy! It seems the golden number is 25K. T.O. was fined 25K for a tweet, Harrison 25k for an illegal hit (giving him a grand total of 125, 000 THIS season), and now Andre Johnson and Cortland Finnegan both 25k for getting in a full on brawl during a Texans shutout game last Sunday.

Roger Goodell, the NFL’s commissioner hands down these punishments like a teacher in grade school having you write your name on the board. There seems to be just one punishment: Pay up. There haven’t been too many full suspensions, only 25k here or 50k here, no matter the offense, and no matter how many times these players offend, as in Harrison’s case of 125K in illegal hits. I’m not here to decide what the right punishment is, but it doesn’t seem fair that T.O. gets the same fine for tweeting before a game, that these guys get for beating each other up in the middle of a game…check it out:

The T. Ocho Show

As if we just couldn’t get enough of Batman and Robin, Shrek and Donkey… They are back, with yet another TV show to showcase their over the top opinions and personalities. “The T. Ocho Show” (creative name right?….Not) will air on Versus starting October 12, 2010.  The show will be a 30 minute discussion of news in the NFL and pop culture, moderated by none other than our favorite Entertainment Tonight Anchor, Kevin Frazier.

If anything this will be entertaining to watch because neither of these guys has a filter, Chad Ochocinco even admitted, “VERSUS is taking a big risk giving us this show. It’s gonna be dangerous. Watch with care.”

Tune in: Versus, October 12, 10:30 ET

Being a female sports reporter is a tough job.  Women have to deal with things men never would.  Granted it’s a 2 way street, because we don’t have to deal with their problems, but the men bring those problems upon themselves.  If a girl is pretty & a sports reporter, she has to go in the locker room & deal with what is handed to her.  This is what happened recently to a Mexican TV reporter, Ines Sainz (a former Miss Spain & bikini model).  She was in the NY Jets locker room waiting for Mark Sanchez because he is of Mexican descent & has become very popular with the Mexican audience.  While in there, some of the players made comments to her that were inappropriate.  Other reporters noticed & made a big deal about it so Jets owner Woody Johnson apologized to her.  She said she didn’t think anyone acted wrong because obviously it’s something she has become accustomed to & it’s not out of the ordinary.

It takes a lot more for a woman to be taken seriously as a sports journalist then it does for a man.  People always say how “she must’ve slept her way to the top” or “she’s only there because she’s hot” or “she deserved it with that outfit on.”  In some cases I agree, that is probably true & I’ve even said those things.  FOX-5 sports reporter Andy Adler in NY, for example knows nothing about sports & her interviews with athletes are basically just her flirting with them.  She was a former entertainment reporter & I guess FOX decided they needed someone better to look at for their broadcasts so moved her to sports to boost their ratings.

Athletes & fans are always giving women reporters a hard time even though a lot of them are really good at their job.  We all heard about Erin Andrews stalker.  And even though NESN field reporter Heidi Watney is supposedly dating Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek, she knows her stuff.  Clinton Portis weighed in on the Ines Sainz situation & said “I think you put women reporters in the locker room in positions to see guys walking around naked, and you sit in the locker room with 53 guys…I know you’re doing a job, but at the same time, the same way I’m gonna cut my eye if I see somebody worth talking to, I’m sure they do the same thing.” The NFL scolded Portis on these comments, saying they are offensive but all the same, it’s probably nothing they haven’t heard before.  A few years ago, Terrell Owens wouldn’t give an interview to anyone but Ms. Sainz & this is the video. you judge for yourself…

We’re all a little depressed about summer ending & the cold weather coming in but there is always a bright side to every situation!  The glass is indeed half-full & I’d say this one is just about filled to the top because ladies, football is back!  In case you missed it, the NFL Hall of Fame inductions happened over the weekend & the big names this year were Emmitt Smith & Jerry Rice (yes, those former Dancing with the Stars contestants did play football once upon a time.)  With that comes the annual Hall of Fame game AKA the first pre-season game of the year!  We got our first look at T.O. & Chad Ochocinco on one team but there really wasn’t anything worth mentioning in their play.  The Bengals took on the Dallas Cowboys in Canton, Ohio (where the HOF is located) & the Cowboys won 16-7.

 

The rest of the pre-season games will begin on Thursday & stretch through the rest of the weekend.  Some notable games are the reigning Super Bowl champ Saints against the Patriots & Panthers versus Ravens on Thursday.  We will see the Vikings minus Brett Favre against the Rams on Saturday.  Also we will get the first look at the new Giants Stadium as the 2 NY teams battle in NJ as the first Monday Night Football of the pre-season.  Pre-season games really don’t count for anything but it is always fun to see your team in action to start the new year.  It also gives you your chance to trash talk as we have all missed doing ever so much!  If you want to see your starters, be sure to tune in early though, because all of the back-ups come in to get their work in by the second half.

The regular season will kick off Thursday, September 9 in what should be a great game: Vikings versus Saints in obviously their first matchup since last season’s NFC Championship game.  So get your fantasy teams ready & your jerseys on because it’s football season (almost!)

So at this point, if you haven’t heard that our boy T.O. has signed with the Bengals, then 1. we let you down, or 2. you live under a rock. And well, I would like to def take the latter. Terrell Owens has signed a deal with the Cincinnati Bengals which happens to be the home of another out spoken receiver, Ocho Cinco.  Oh yes ladies, the hotties of the back to back VH1 reality shows will now be frolicking on the same team this year. We can all expect this upcoming season to be quite the spectacle on and off the field.

The addition of T.O. means that Carson Palmer will not only have one, but two future hall of fame receivers to launch the ball to. Owens arrived today in Cincinnati to sign his contract and make the deal official. Owens managed to get himself a $2 million salary, with a chance to make another $2 million in bonuses. Owens could earn $333,000 each for passing the following milestones: 60 catches, 100 catches, 900 receiving yards, 1,300 receiving yards, 10 touchdowns and 14 touchdowns, (Via ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter).

The media has been all over this story, but our favorite place to get news is, well of course Twitter. “The Ultimate Catch” himself and Mr. Owens have already started to embrace the idea of being the next has Dynamic Duo:
