What a world. Last night this forum discussed the propriety of Bill Bellichick's ridiculous sideline attire, and the fact that the NFL does nothing about it. So tonight we see that the No Fun League is finally getting off the ground and dealing with another egregious violation of its sacrosanct uniform rules. They're clamping down on a humorous name tag worn by a wide receiver before the game even starts.

Does this make sense? Sure. Ask Mike Nolan.

I bet the NFL shop is now going to put a block on using ocho cinco on the back of a customized bengals jersey.

Which is dumb since it's not obscene and it'd probably make for a pretty popular jersey. But that's how the NFL is.

This wouldn't bug me at all if they fined Belicheck for looking like a bum, but they didn't so it does seem dumb to me because this is pretty consistent with the way the NFL fines players, in my opinion, which is perfectly fine -- but the way Belicheck looks is so much worse than this to me.

1. They aren't going to fine BB because he "looks like a bum" because he's wearing RBK gear that makes the league and themselves money. Also, football is usually outside in crappy weather so he has an argument.

2. They probably had to cap the pre-game stuff because who knows what people would trot out wearing and then who knows what could get on the field during the game.

Just saying... :blink:

I'd fine him for messing up Spanish.

Eighty-five is ochenta cinco. :cursing:

Edited to add emphasis about how bastardising another langauge makes me mad like hulk!

But he doesn't call himself "eighty-five". He calls himself "eight five". So "ocho cinco" would be correct.

Either way, it's stupid fine. The NFL has its priorities out of whack.

Nope. He calls himself "Eighty-five".

About 17 or 18 seconds and three or four other times in you can clearly hear it.

Ocho Cinco instead of ochenta y cinco makes it funnier to me.
