Chad Johnson is back in the news, for more than just changing his name back to Chad Johnson from Chad Ochocinco. (Chad World Peace must have already been taken.) He fired off a tweet to "dad", also known as NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, promising to be a problem this year. That tweet led to Mike & Mike calling out Chad Johnson on their radio show this morning, which led to Chad Johnson destroying Mike & Mike on Twitter. Check it out after the jump...
Are we to believe that Mike Golic is actually contacting Chad Johnson's news network to set up an interview with the Dolphins wide receiver? I sure hope so. (Side note - did you know the OCNN actually has its own website with updated posts?) It's a typical ploy for any show in this situation to try and create a story for themselves and say "hey, come on our show!!!" Skip Bayless is the king of this. Not too many athletes can so quickly reply though, "No, you come on my show." Gotta admit, that's a decent comeback. Chad Johnson may indeed be past his prime on the football field, but maybe a return to his roots with his surname will spur a return to his prime as a provocateur. Now if he can only move up the ESPN Radio schedule and take on Colin Cowherd for calling Roger Goodell a dad to fatherless black players...
I hate to say this, but Feherty, who I really like, was announcing "live" while we saw the shot on delay.
If you go back another 90 seconds on the CBS feed, you see Hanson getting ready to putt on one, with a massive crowd noise building in the background.
When they went to Feherty, it was quiet.
CBS faced this issue multiple times today and they should be told to tell us when we are watching live and when we are watching on delay, even if it is 30 seconds.
Announcers having a chance to shape their commentary is an egregious "Awful Announcing" violation.
