Chad Johnson's guarantee

Postby Challie » Thu Nov 13, 2003 12:22 pm

Why does Chad do this? What does a "guarantee" from him mean other than guaranteeing the the 9-0 Chiefs will not suffer a letdown.

http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slug=a ... &type=lgns

Interesting that he makes a guarantee just as he signed his 5-year extension. Maybe he can put some teeth into this and offer the Cincy fans in attendance a money-back guarantee. (After the loss on the loudspeaker: "Attention Bengals fans, Chad Johnson will be at stadium gate C to distribute your $10 refund. Drive safely. Great seats still available for 2004 season tickets.")
... in my opinion, of course - but that should always go without saying.

Chad made two guarantees last year. Neither drew much media attention due to the Bengals woefulness. To grab the attention he craves, Chad had to make his prediction this year a big one.

Some say his guarantee was to get national attention to help his pro-bowl bid out, others think it was for contract purposes (he guaranteed it just before he brought up the contract extension). I think he truly just craves attention. He wants to have the longest 15 seconds of fame ever.


And he did back up his guarantee last night on the major AM radio station in Cincy, 700 WLW, by offering to pay for a 6 oz. ice cream for anyone that has a losing Chiefs ticket after this week.

I like Chad's other quote, something along the lines of:

"there are only 3 things that are certain in this life: death, taxes, and me gettin open"

I don't think he sniffs the ball this week. KC will put a blanket over him. I'm tempted to sit him this week. Bad Feeling, anybody else???

I personally think that the Benglas will win. I hope Rudi goes nuts too!

I think it's a smarter move by Chad than some people realize. If they lose, then no one cares. They lost to the 10-0 Chiefs, not a big deal. But if Cincy wins, Chad is a hero.
