The domestic violence arrest allegations facing NFL wider receiver Chad Johnson/Ochocinco resulted him losing his multi-million dollar deal with the Miami Dolphins. As we reported earlier, HBO is filming a special series surrounding the former NFL championship team entitled “Hard Knocks’ and Chad firing’s was all captured on tape.
As Chad walked into the room to meet with MD head coach, Joe Philbin, he scans the room as if he knew the camera’s was on. Prior to being fired Chad issued opening remarks:
“I let you down a little bit. ALOT. A nd I understand what you’re doing, you got the message across clear the first day we met. Not just individually, but as a Team. I understood what you wanted from me and what you expected out of me, especially after our talk — having-fun-with-the-media thing. I apologize for embarrassing you, this organization, my teammates.”
He went on to tell his head coach:
“Coach I’ve never been in trouble before. EVER. And I buy into your program….after that talk we had [the news conference talk on episode 1] I was Hush from that point on and I was going to stay that way for the remainder of the year [aka the NFL season]“
The coach seemed empathetic but it surely didn’t change his mind. He kept it simple and plain:
I just don’t think you MESH with what were trying to do…..It’s certainly not good news for you and the same for us as well. I’m certain that you can overcome this thing but it’s not going work; you and us.
Chad kindly, thanked his coach, the two shared a firm man hug, and it all came to an end. Chad cleaned out his locker room and was captured exiting the Miami Dolphins head quarters.
