Steve Johnson fined $5K for 'Joker' TD shirt

Bills breakout wide receiver Steve Johnson had a little fun at the expense of Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens on Sunday, as the Buffalo receiver revealed a t-shirt with "Why so serious?" written on it after his first of three touchdowns.

That, for those that aren't big fans of comic books turned awesome movies, is one of the Joker's lines from The Dark Knight. It was an expensive one too, because Johnson's been fined $5,000 for revealing the shirt.

The shirt itself is funny, since Owens and Ochocinco call themselves "Batman and Robin." And it's flat-out hysterical because Johnson's ridiculous afternoon helped propel the Bills to a blowout victory after falling behind 28-7 early in the game.

Of course, this is pretty standard NFL procedure for breaking uniform -- as much as you have to think that the league chuckles seeing T. Ocho get publicly and intellectually torched on a TD celebration, they have no choice but to peg Johnson with a fine.

It's the same sort of thing as when Nate Burleson busted out some Detroit slang on a shirt (although he got $15,000 for punting the ball into the stands as well) Roddy White revealed a "Free Mike Vick" tee a long while back, and, as always, it's the not the message that gets punished, but the action.

you're right. instead of watching football we should encourage guys likeTO and Chad Jonhson. All it does is promote these 2 knuckleheads. Ignore them, they might go away.we can stop all the football action and turn it into Comedt Central. Jack Lambert wouldn't put up with these guys!!

Well worth the $5K in my opinion.  But I would have said something a little more provacative since it was directed at the two Bengal losers!!  C.O. and T.O are the jokers of the League.  Shut up already!

Don't forget the 'Rozelle' headband by one Jim McMahon of the '85 Bears ..

I don't recall Jimmy-Mac getting fined, though.
