PFT got a few emails last night about a supposed squabble between Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens on Twitter.
It was clear the players were just kidding around, but the inspiration behind their sarcastic back-and-forth was real. Ochocinco is still annoyed about the media’s handling of Carson Palmer’s trade request. In response to an NFL Network discussion on Palmer, Ocho tweeted the following:
“I love the media, I want out few years back im disgruntled n a distraction, I was sick of losing, Carson is tired of losing its still my fault?” Ochocinco asked. “Double standard meet Chad. Chad meet double standard. I’ll let you two mingle.#childplease”
Ochocinco has said he wants to return to Cincinnati. (Then again, he also said he was going to whoop Florio’s ass at the Super Bowl and failed to deliver.)
The reality is that Palmer, despite his trade request, is far more likely to be a Bengal than Ochocinco during the 2011 season.
