Two of the most prolific offensive weapons in the NFL, Chad Johnson of the Cincinnati Bengals and Larry Johnson of the Kansas City Chiefs, took their game to the virtual field on Xbox Live to determine who the better scorer was as part of the premier episode of “Settle the Score” on MTV. To raise the stakes, Chad and Larry wagered personal items at the start of each half. LJ put on the line his custom Reebok sneakers, an autographed Charlie Joiner jersey and his game-worn Pro-Bowl jersey; Chad fired back by wagering a pair of game-worn cleats, one of his touchdown balls, as well as an autographed Clinton Portis jersey. Chad was the better Johnson after the first half, kicking three field goals to best Larry 9-7, winning all of LJ’s wagered items.

The stakes grew at the start of the second half when Larry, confident that he’d come back and beat Chad, put up his custom Chopper Motorcycle against Chad’s. Using “cyber LJ,” the Chiefs’ Johnson ran all over the Bengals in the third quarter, scoring a 24-yard touchdown to take the lead 14-9.

With momentum on his side heading into the fourth quarter, LJ came out with an astonishing wager: if he won, Chad’s famous Mohawk would be dyed Kansas City Chiefs red; if he lost, Larry would shave his hair down to a Mohawk and color it Cincinnati Bengals orange.

Nice read, and a pretty sweet idea by MTV - for once.

I cant believe that he put up and lost his custom chopper. That die in his hair looks like temporary die to me.

Good read.

might be good for the laughs of the dudes talking but gameplaywise, the cheese is out in full force when money or rankings are on the line.
