What is wrong with him?
CINCINNATI -- Maybe receiver Chad Johnson can go by the name that his head coach hates.
The Cincinnati Bengals receiver has legally changed his name to Chad Javon Ocho Cinco in Broward County, Fla., a switch that became official this week. Johnson, who lives in Miami, didn't return a message left on his cell phone Friday night.
"It's something I don't think anyone has ever done before," he told the team's Web site. "Have I ever had a reason for why I do what I do? I'm having fun."
Two years ago, Johnson gave himself the moniker -- a reference in Spanish to his No. 85 -- and put it on the back of his uniform before a game. Quarterback Carson Palmer ripped it off before the kickoff. After the season, coach Marvin Lewis -- who dislikes Johnson's attention-getting stunts -- referred to the receiver as "Ocho Psycho."
Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan said the Bengals had no comment on the matter.
Johnson has been a concern for the Bengals this season. He unsuccessfully lobbied for a trade in the offseason, threatening to sit out if he didn't get his way. When the Bengals refused, he relented and showed up for minicamp, but complained that his right ankle was bothering him.
He had bone spurs removed from the ankle and was limited at the start of training camp. In the second preseason game, he landed awkwardly and temporarily dislocated his left shoulder. Johnson is wearing a harness and expects to play in the season opener against Baltimore.

I think the team should put "Ocho Psycho" on his jersey. What an idiot.Pleasing nobody, one person at a time.

From one of my favorite sports blogs "Kissing Suzy Kolber" regarding Ocho Cinco and Marvin Lewis:
Ocho and Marvin: Under One Roof! The Water Episode
In an effort to regain control of his team, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis decides to take the drastic step of bringing volatile wideout Chad Johnson into his home, in a spirited attempt to get both men to understand one another better.
Marvin: Okay Chad, hereís your room.
Ocho: Got it, got it. Thanks, coach.
Marvin: Bathroomís down the hall. The kids are in bed around nine or so, so try and keep noise to a minimum after that.
Ocho: I hear ya. No problem at all. Listen, coach, I have to wash my hands. Is there a bathroom I can use?
Marvin: Oh yeah, almost forgot: my contractor is here today to replace some of our piping. The water in the house was shut off for the morning. Here.
Marvin: Just use this to wash your hands.
Ocho: That? No, no, no. I canít use that. Thatís drankiní water. I canít use that.
Marvin: What are you talking about? Itís water. Itís the same. You can drink it, bathe with it, water plants with it, whatever.
Ocho: No, itís not. This water is specifically for DRANKINí. I canít use drankiní water on my hands. Itís dangerous. I need sink water.
Marvin: ButÖ you CAN use it. Itís not dangerous at all. Theyíre both just water.
Ocho: No, there are different kinds of water.
Marvin: No, there arenít. All water is the same.
Ocho: No, it isnít.
Marvin: Yes, it is.
Ocho: No, it isnít.
Marvin: Yes, it is.
Ocho: Then how come they tell you not to drank the water thatís in the ocean?
Marvin: Thatís seawater. It has salt in it.
Ocho: EXACTLY. Thatís a different kind of water. Like drankiní water.
Marvin: No, no. That isnít how it works. All water is THE SAME, Chad. Itís the same base molecule, H2O. Two parts hydrogen, one part oxygen.
Ocho: The fuck you talking about? Thereís no oxygen in water. Thatís the air.
Marvin: No, you donít understand. At the molecular level, all water is the same: H2O.
Ocho: Like ďHalloween: H2OĒ?
Marvin: NO! Listen to me. Water is all the same, but then other things can be dissolved into it, like minerals, or flavorings, or saltÖ
Ocho: Why would I add salt to water if it makes it taste so bad?
Marvin: You wouldnít. That just happens naturally in the oceans.
Ocho: Then, if it naturally has salt in it, then itís NATURALLY a different kind of water, just like Vitamin WaterÖ
Marvin: Again, thatís not water. Thatís a sweetened beverage.
Ocho: Or Fire WaterÖ
Marvin: Thatís a liqueur.
Ocho: Or WaterworldÖ
Marvin: Thatís a motion picture starring Kevin Costner and Jeanne Tripplehorn. None of those things are water. Not Waterworld, or Vitamin WaterÖ
Ocho: Then why does it say WATER on the goddamn bottle?
Marvin: Because thatís a brand name. Just because you CALL something water doesnít make it water.
Ocho: What about Brian Waters? He seems very watery. Always dripping.
Marvin: No, no. Brian Waters is an offensive lineman. Not a kind of water. Water is an INGREDIENT in Vitamin Water, and even in people, but that doesnít make either one ALL water. They have other stuff in them.
Ocho: Okay then, let me ask you this: Would you wash your hands with Vitamin Water?
Marvin: No, you canít wash your hands with Vitamin Water.
Ocho: See? I rest my case. THAT is why I canít use the drankiní water for my hands.
Marvin: HOLY SHIT. ARE YOU THE DENSEST PERSON ON THE FACE OF THE FUCKING EARTH?! FRESH, CLEAR FUCKING WATER IS SAFE TO DRINK AND TO WASH YOUR FUCKING HANDS WITH. WHAT FUCKING BYZANTINE LABYRINTH OF BREATHTAKINGLY FUCKHEADED LOGIC CAUSED YOU TO DEDUCE THAT YOU CANíT WASH YOUR HANDS WITH A GODDAMN SPLASH OF AQUAFINA, YOU DROOLING FUCKING MORON?
Ocho: HmmÖ Iím still not convinced about this, man. I think I should probably call Ray Lewis. He can settle this.
Marvin: No, no. You want proper sink water? FINE. Iíll go over to the neighbors and get some for you. Iíll back down on this juuust for you. Okay? Thatís the kind of effort Iím gonna try and make, so we can co-exist, EVEN THOUGH YOU LACK THE BASIC, RUDIMENTARY FUCKING UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT COMPRISES WATER AND WHAT DOES NOT.
(leaves, comes back with bowl full of water)
Here. Hereís some sink water.
Ocho: Thatís not sink water. Thatís in a bowl. Thatís dog water. I canít wash my hands in dog water.
Marvin: JESUS FUCKING CHRIST.

He is a jackass. And T.O is no where near as bad as him, and never has been.
