The main page is changed with the roster ... He's now listed as Chad Ocho Cinco.

Here's the link from Lance's blog:

Does he have to pay Reebok like Rivers may have to?

WHO DEY!

Hopefully the knock-off "authentic" jersey will show up on eBay so I can replace my current Johnson jersey.

Actually THAT jersey has been available for nearly a year or more. My girlfriend grabbed one last year. High-quality knockoff ... but a nice jersey nonetheless.

I'm conflicted about this a bit...part of me thinks it's great and really funny...the other half wishes he'd just shut up and play. Either way, I love that he has fun, and he seems to have the most fun when he's making DBs look clueless. I just really hope he can back it up this year a little better than last season.

A Chad Johnson aka Ocho Cinco jersey is never a waste. He is excitement and he will perform!

"Just shut up and play" is thrown around an awful lot seeing how the season hasent even starten and all. He was the same person last year and gave us 1400 yards, same guy the year before and gave us 1400ish yards, ect ect. I love the fact that he changed his name, makes me giggle like Marvin every time I see it posted somewhere, and the fact that he is still probably going to give us 1400 yards and 10+ TD's makes it all the better.

yea "just shut up and play" being said a lot for a guy playing with that shoulder injury and putting off surgery to play. he's already said he wants to make peace 4 what he's done over this offseason. that's good enough 4 me.

How can I do that?

Don't buy the jersey...just replace the nameplate! Times are hard on everyone these days except anyone involved in the NFL. But if you'd rather pay 80 dollars instead of 20 that is your decision. Hopefully this time Chad uses your money more wisely.

Good for Chad - he deserves it. And hats off to him. I saw a report that estimates he will make 2 to 3 million by changing his name. For that much, you can call me S*** H*** - ha ha

this is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever seen. Chad is a great player, but he's also a ***** moron.

Hopefully the knock-off "authentic" jersey will show up on eBay so I can replace my current Johnson jersey.
I got a Carson, Chad, and TJ away 'authentic' knock off from cargolargo for $35 total, so about 12 a piece.

They have the black ones for a little more, and the orange ones for about the same price... I got the black TJ knock off for $45 bucks from them.

They always have jerseys that failed to sale on there E-bay auctions at their home site... I would check there, you don't even have to bid.

They are the highest quality knock off I have ever seen... They don't fade like most of the knock off jerseys I've bought before, they have the right size and font numbers on them, plus white part actually blends into the sleeve right unlike nearly every other knock off that has been avialable for the last few years (if you know what I mean, the white panels on the sides of the jersey that go up from the bottom and to the end of the sleeves used to come up and square off in the arm pits on all the knock of authentics, it looked really odd... the ones I've bought from cargo largo don't have that problem, the white panels smoothly blend with the other colors in the arm pit part of the jersey...
I've been hard pressed to actually find a difference between the actual authentic Thurman jersey I bought and the 4 knock offs I bought.

I will be looking for the Ocho knock offs within the next week or two.

Several Points :

Point 1. I lived through Cassius Clay changing his name to Mohammed Ali. People didn't get it at first, but Howard Cossell was right, that was his choice and his right. Lew Alcindor became Kareem Abdul Jabbar

Point 2. Chad Johnson was going to sit out this year. It would be nice to have Carson Palmer throwing to him, TJ and when he comes back, Henry.

Point 3. Since Chad didn't sit out, he can call himself 85 ( Ocho Cinco ) or whatever number or name he wants to call himself as far as I'm concerned. As long as he isn't sitting out.

GO 85 !!!! Go Bengals !!!!

I'd say any sporting good store that sells authentic jerseys. There is a place here in cincy that has blank Bengal jerseys and will put whatever number/name on em.

Come on now. I don't care that Chad changed his name, but you're not really trying to compare Muslim beliefs to "Ocho freakin Cinco" are you.

I think the best bet would be to buy a Velcro nameplate like Chad had Carson rip off last season. I'd imagine this name change is only for this season and he will again be a Johnson next season.

Let's trade him to San Diego for a couple first rounders and see him try to fight Gates for the #85 jersey...

Works for me. I just want to see a clip of him being carted out of the press conference when he tells Gates he gets #85 and there's not a damn thing he can do about it. :lol:

It would be hilarious if they changed his number to 81 or something.

Chad: "What? Ocho Cinco can't wear Ocho Uno!"

When I first heard about Chad changing his name I laughed, then I said he is lost it. I thought well if he makes less than 10% on each jersey sold it's a good business deal for him and he may make some of that money back that he wanted in a new contract. As a fan I think it's just an opening day distraction and I hope it doesn't affect his play. Each time Chad comes up with a pepto attention getter he seems to get shut out that week. If he goes out there catches 3 TDS and goes over 100 yards it's fine with the name change. If he lays an egg in Baltimore then he is Chad just being Chad thinking only of hiself.

what will you replace it with? Chad "Big Turd"

thats what he is, what a moron he is.

I predict this being the Jump the Shark for Chad's career.

he will now go down hill and fast

You think the extra weight on the name plate might increase his drag coefficient or something? Or perhaps that he might be looking over his shoulder pads the entire game just to check out the new jersey?
