"Coach, I've never been in trouble before," Chad Johnson said to his Dolphins head coach, but all of that meant nothing. The Miami Dolphins had made up their mind, it was time to "part ways."
The baller, formerly known as Ochocinco, had his real life drama play out before the cameras on HBO's Hard Knocks, as video footage of him getting cut was recorded for the show.
Chad walked into head coach Joe Philbin's office and said:
"I let you down I know that. A lot. I understand what you're doing. You got the message across clear the first day we met, I understood what you wanted from me and what you expected of me. Especially after our talk, with the having fun, and the media thing. I apologize for embarrassing you, the organization and our team mates."
Chad handled it like a strong man, and while we all knew it was coming, it was still hard to watch. The NFL wide receiver was arrested over an alleged domestic dispute that left his wife Evelyn Lozada with a gash on her face. This incident sparked major attention and things all went down hill from there, with Ev filing for divorce after only a month of marriage.
Do you think Chad deserved to be cut for his first off the field incident?
