Inless you know what these guys personally maybe you shouldnt be calling them fools. My son just attended the ochocinco football camp and Chad happens to be one of the most impressive people I have ever met. It was 95 degrees out and he was out there with the kids running drills and giving them his best both days. Not to mention he bought every kid there who didnt own a gaming system a ps3 or an xbox. He went above and beyond in every way. Im sure you will find a way to cut down down as well. Just know alot of them can put a good act on in front of the cameras but it is what they do away when it matters. I hope my son learned something from Chad this week.

Chad seems very down to earth and adds humor to the game. He is an asset to the Bengals!

This is garbage reporting by TMZ. It is just a rumor and I am betting that the source close to TMZ probably most likely read it on twitter. For 2.5 weeks the Kings were very close to a deal with Ilya Kovalchuk. Everyday there was something new. Ilya is close, its a done deal, any day now, Kovalchuk and LA inch closer, just finalizing the details. And this was reporting coming from places like the Helene Elliot of the LA Times who may or my not have been a victim of twitter...Point is, don't believe it until the ink is dry.
