Default NFL not laughing about Ochocinco's dollar-bill joke, fines him $20K

NFL.com reports:

Chad Ochocinco's pretend $1 bribe cost him a lot more.

The NFL fined the Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver $20,000 and reprimanded him for taking a dollar bill onto the field during an officials' review of one of his catches last Sunday. Ochocinco held the dollar in his right hand at his side but didn't give it to the official, who motioned for him to stay away.

Ochocinco said he was just having fun, but the league didn't like it.

Ray Anderson, the NFL's executive vice president of football operations, sent Ochocinco a letter that said: "The very appearance of impropriety is not acceptable. Your conduct was unprofessional and unbecoming an NFL player."
