That guy is crazy, but that seems pretty cool of him.

Who wants to take a guess as to the venue?

It was a nice local steakhouse in Indy.

I'm trying to remember if any of the steakhouses have a big separate room.

I'm guessing Sullivan's

He's going to go to either BLT or Mez. They asked for BLT but I'm not sure they could accommodate that many in a separate room. Mez can give them the whole upstairs....it's Jordans favorite spot at the EpiCentre and they actually got Jordan to text Ocho to pick that place.

I cannot believe people are trying to turn this into something negative or about publicity, if he wanted publicity he would announce this through the media, not twitter where only the fans can see it. If he wanted attention for it he would let ESPN know and they would air it all over national TV.

he does this pretty much every game, he even takes fans on $2,000 shopping sprees on his own dime, STEELERS fans at that.

he is a good dude who likes to have fun and gets a bad rap because people are ignorant.

I wish I could make it there, I am a huge Chad Johnson fan.

Yeah wish I was in Charlotte today, or this weekend for that matter, but I'm stuck on campus and have assignments due... Chad's one of my favorite athletes period and he does give back, he's a real dude... I don't understand how people are trying to spin this. As dimbee said, he's taken fans in opposing teams' cities out on shopping sprees, which I mentioned in the other thread about him as well.

I don't see what the problem is, so often people complain about how athletes are stuck up and don't 'mingle with the commoners,' you got a guy that's doing that and you look for a way to tear him apart for it?

Also, regardless of whether he likes the media attention, which he does, I'm sure he can find plenty of other way to get it without spending 10k each weekend on people he doesn't know - he has to have some other intrinsic motivation for doing it.

    • I don't feel like we're a sleeper team. We are just mercurial as a franchise- up, down, and in the middle. I really do not know what to expect this year. As it's been said, the O-line is a big question mark. Our interior is good, but the tackle spot is a mystery. I wasn't and am still not high on the Lil Kalil signing, and not because of the contract. He has declined every year since his rookie year. Am I suppose to believe that he has really been chronically injured this whole time and now that he is here with Ryan he is suppose to magically be healthy and perform? I'm not saying it isn't possible- I'm not saying he's def going to suck either. I just have no clue. I think it's a big time gamble from Gman. I hope it works out. And I desperately want to be proved wrong about it too. I hope he fills the hole that's been there since Gross left as a long term solution. And the other thing that worries me that is the coaching staff. Everyone talks about Shula but I'm not high on RR. He took zero accountability in his post season presser- as apposed to Gman who acknowledged his mistakes. I've never really liked him- I'm really wondering if Riverboat was just fools gold. He just feels like Fox 2.0- don't think he can't get us a Lombardi- which is sad because I feel like our roster can. Again, I hope I'm wrong about this. These two things plus our division- The NFCS will be a dogfight this year. 
    • Yeah we fell asleep..the offensive like ducked and the secondary ducked til Bradbury and the other kid stepped up.. but season was done.. need a healthy o-Lind this year and execute or these new weapons are pointless
