Cody: NFL players certainly do not lack creativity

The NFL always seems to produce athletes with big egos. Put those egos together with a little creativity and we get wonderful entertainment.

Houston Texans cornerback Dunta Robinson has been fined $25,000 by his team for wearing cleats with the words "Pay me Rick" written on them during Sunday's game against the New York Jets.

The Rick in question is Texans general manager Rick Smith, with whom Robinson is trying to secure a new contract.

Robinson's stunt is the latest in a rather short, but glorious history of NFL escapades. Starting with Terrell Owens' infamous Sharpie celebration, fans have grown accustomed to expecting more high jinks every week.

While the administrators of the "No Fun League" publicly say they disapprove of these activities, on the inside I bet they appreciate some of the publicity.

Personally, I am a fan. While it does get annoying to listen to Chad Ochocinco's last name (especially now that Johnson is no longer on his jersey), his antics make me laugh.

Honestly, how much worse is Ochocinco than seeing Shaq on his own reality show?

What do you think of crazy celebrations and actions by players like Robinson?

Exactly, Kevin.

I understand banning celebrations that get in the way of the game or taunt other players. But, I love a good bit of laughter with my football game.
