Ochocinco's In Game Eagles Tweet Costs Him 25K

During last week's preseason game between the Eagles and Bengals, Stewart Bradley popped Chad Ochocinco particularly hard in the second quarter on a play that resulted in an Bengals turnover. Chad was a little miffed by the hit and took to Twitter in the middle of the game to complain about it.

Aside from being kind of a wussy thing to do, Tweeting during a game (whether it's to whine about the mean man on the Eagles or not) is illegal. The NFL has fined Ochocinco $25,000.
