    That is awesome. I understand the NFL having to be strict, and I applaud OC's and the NFLPA's decision that it is worth the fine.

    Very classy for both OC and the NFLPA.

    +1 Don't always have the time for OC but kudos to him for this and for the NFLPA as well - well done guys.
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    will he wear Henry's name plate? or will he put OCHOCINCO on the back?

    good question. I'm betting Ocho will be on the back. he said he's wear Henry's number, but not name. Probably kinda like how a couple years ago all the Redskins in the probowl wore #21, but their own name.

    Good move by 85 as well as the league. Tragic event that happened to that young man.

    The two teams I would not want to play this week are playing each other. Should be game of the week.
    We're bringing purple back.

    guess he's not going to wear the jersey so as to not create a distraction.

    that decision is also a classy move, but i think wearing it would have been well within the realms of respectability and respect by any teammate of Chris Henry's. Its such a tragic story and the broken arm he suffered earlier in the season makes this story that much sadder. Hearts and prayers to Henry's family and friends.

    Wearing his number is a very noble and respectful thing to do, as is the NFLPA in matching the fine. HOWEVER, if the nflpa feels it's nec. to match it in the first place, they should bring the violation to the forefront at the next meetings, and try to get it changed. Otherwise, a decal should be enough.

    Yeah I just heard they are matching the fine, not paying his fine for him. Oh well, it's still the right thing to do.
