Chad Ochocinco has been fined $20,000 by the NFL for his joking attempt to bribe officials during last week's game against the Ravens. The issue wasn't necessarily that he had the dollar in his hand and was walking out to the referee during the replay... it was more so that he mentioned the word "bribe" in his postgame comments. That's what the NFL really took issue with, since it insinuates their referees might do something untoward. Chad said it was a joke, but apparently the league only thought it was $20k funny.
