Chad Johnson

LIED TO DOLPHINS

In Desperate Attempt to Save Job

Chad Johnson
lied to his coach's face this week in an effort to keep from being cut from the Miami Dolphins ... but it didn't work ... and Chad's humiliating termination was all caught on tape.

Johnson's ill-fated meeting with Coach Joe Philbin was captured by the crew at "Hard Knocks" ... a weekly HBO documentary series following the Dolphins which aired last night.

"Hard Knocks" cameras followed Johnson on the day after he was arrested for domestic battery ... when he met with Philbin at the Miami offices ... and tried to talk the Coach out of firing his ass.

During the very short meeting, Johnson told Philbin ... "Coach, I've never been in trouble before ... ever."

He lied.

As TMZ previously reported, Johnson was convicted of domestic violence back in 2000 ... after slapping his then-girlfriend during an argument. Apparently, the arrest slipped his mind.

But even if Chad would have been honest with his coach, it's highly unlikely he could've saved his job ... Philbin made it clear the organization didn't want to take a risk on an aging player with very little upside and a TON of risk.

I think it's all on Chad. He played with the bull and boy did he get the horns. I don't think I would waste my fortune and fame on a girl like Evelyn. She's old, ugly inside and out, and been around the corner more than a couple times.

By the way I find it interesting that you were such a negative bully toward other women and NOW you want to be the new face of abused women. KARMA is a "B" so shake it's hand and enjoy the ride

I believe regardless of what happened that nobody should put their hands on another including Evelyn. But I find it interesting that she built her so-called celebrity career on throwing wine glasses, swinging at others she thought she could intimidate and threatening people. If Chad needs counseling SO does Evelyn. My grandmother always said "their is always somebody badder than you,"so Evelyn even tho what happened to you was wrong I have noooooo sympathy for you. GROW UP
DOES SHE.

Chad loved and was proud of his NFL status. He changed his name for cryin out loud to show his allegiance and love for the game and his accomplishments. NFL is at the top of the field. And he made it and was a top player. He worked hard for that status. ...Then threw it away over a skirt. A filthy second hand skirt. All the best to you Chad. Keep your head up. The fat lady hasn't sung. The butter isn't melting. All said, I thought he handled the firing situation as well as one could. Never been a fan. Only heard of him. Don't know much else. That's my 85 cents.
