    Ocho Cinco - "I can beat Phelps"

    This guy needs to shut up and get a life. He's becoming very annoying.

    Ocho Cinco says he can beat Michael Phelps - Fourth-Place Medal - Olympics - Yahoo! Sports

    Re: Ocho Cinco - "I can beat Phelps"

    I agree. At first it was funny, now it's like he's just doing things to get attention. I would guess he's trying to get some tv publicity from this; probably wants some promoter to set up a swimming match between he and Phelps. Didn't he run against a racehorse not too long ago?

    And people wonder why I would not want him on my team. The guy is a headcase, drama queen and a diva.

    I hope they do set it up and Phelps smokes him, and then rubs it in his face.

    Yes, Chad talks a lot, but I don't see anything wrong with this. Running against the horse was for charity. Most people don't know the charitable side of him thanks to the media only reporting when he runs his mouth.

    Re: Ocho Cinco - "I can beat Phelps"

    I think it's funny, and smart. It gets people talking about him, but not in a negative way like a lot of other athletes. The guy likes to have a good time, he's the class clown.

    He does this to get a rise out of the media and the public...and obviously it works quite well!

    That would be amusing. Would Phelps pull a big sign out of the end of the pool at the end? Propose to one of the stat keepers?

    Re: Ocho Cinco - "I can beat Phelps"

    I'm not going to say I like his talk. He is definitely an attention whore, but as long as it his mouth getting attention and not criminal behavior, who really cares?

    To think football is any less "entertainment" than any thing else on TV is wrong. Yeah, it's a game show, but, at the end of the day, it's merely entertainment. he's just using his venue to the fullest.

    Re: Ocho Cinco - "I can beat Phelps"

    Lighten up people he is obviously just joking around. Did you watch the interview? Sometimes sarcasm doesn't come through as well in print.

    In that same interview he was talking trash about carson palmer and saying how he could beat him up. He was just saying that because carson was sitting right by him just out of view of the camera and then carson came in and put chad in a choke hold. Now someone can write an article about how chad threatened carson and carson assaulted him. What is being said has been taken way out of context.

    Re: Ocho Cinco - "I can beat Phelps"

    My least favorite player in the NFL. Not to mention he is so over-rated. He has had one great year and everything else has been average.
