Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco (formerly Chad Johnson) is making headlines after declaring on a radio interview that he is planning to defy NFL rules and “tweet” during the actual NFL games in the upcoming season.
Ochocinco is a charismatic player who is well known for his creative touchdown celebrations and is no stranger to being suspended. But will he go through with his promise to tweet mid-game? Will this open the door to other athletes using Twitter during games? And how will the leagues react? BetUS has all the odds:
Will Chad Ochocinco do a Twitter Touch Down Celebration?
Will Lance Armstrong Twitter from his bike during the Tour de France?
Will an NFL Player Twitter from the end zone?
Who will be the next player to Tweet in-game?
Charlie Villanueva 5/2
Chad Johnson 3/2
Shawne Merriman 6/1
Lamar Odom 8/1
Chris Bosh 10/1
Baron Davis 11/1
BJ Penn 50/1
Who will be the first to 50,000 Followers?
Chris Bosh 5/6
Charlie Villanueva 5/6
Will a player retire via twitter before 2011?
Will a player be suspended for a Twitter Message?
The first league to suspend a player for using Twitter?
What will be the first league to officially ban Twitter during Games?
