    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.
    Earlier Saturday, NFL Players Association assistant executive director for external affairs Geroge Atallah posted a tweet in which he said the union “will cover any fine” levied against Ochocinco by the league and “match it with a gift to our Chris Henry memorial fund.” Technically, though, that would be illegal under league rules. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed the league rule that states it is illegal for any entity to pay the fine imposed from a violation of the league’s uniform policy. Such fines are taken directly from a player’s salary.
    Thanks for the link.

    Ochocinco wears No. 85; Marshall honors Henry

    After some back and forth during the week, which ended with Chad Ochocinco saying he didn’t want to be a distraction, the Bengals’ wide receiver ultimately decided not to wear the No. 15 jersey of deceased teammate Chris Henry in Sunday’s game against the Chargers.
