As we’ve previously noted, Foster is a Buccaneers linebacker who was penalized for a hit on Ochocinco last week, and Ochocinco offered to reimburse Foster if he was fined. The NFL, however, said Ochocinco can’t reimburse Foster, and the NFL did, in fact, fine Foster $20,000.
But Ochocinco is adamant, addressing a Twitter message to Goodell (whom he called “Dad”) and saying he would, in fact, pay Foster’s fine.
“Dad no disrespect but I don’t agree with @mason_foster fine n I’ll be reimbursing him personally.Please feel free to contact me.”
We’ll be interested to find out if Goodell does, in fact, contact Ochocinco. Ochocinco doesn’t sound like he’s going to back down.
