The Internet has become a commonplace for people to rant about the injustices of the world. Posts, blogs and tweets all have people complaining about the various nuisances in life.

It seems NFL players have decided to join in on this popular trend.

Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco tweeted about his most recent annoyance with the NFL after being fined $5,000 for wearing an orange chin strap, instead of white, during a preseason game.

On Saturday, Ochocinco tweeted, “WTF I got a damn fine already, it’s the damn preseason, this is some b-------!!!!”

In another tweet, Ochocinco said, “Im sueing the NFL, I am color blind so this fine is discriminating because I’m disabled in a way, this is a sad day for me:(“

Ochocinco also posted a picture of the letter he received from the league, outlining the uniform infraction.

Yes, some of the uniform restrictions the NFL has set in place are on the extreme side, but rules are rules. When you’re making as much money as Ochocinco is, how hard is it to adhere to a dress code for a few hours?

Sorry Ochocinco, but this is one football fan that does not feel your pain.
