Max Starks Lashes Out At Chad Ochocinco

Max Starks had some choice words for the Bengals’ Chad Ochocinco at camp yesterday, the Trib reports:

Starks said Ochocinco aroused his ire during a recent episode of the latter’s reality TV show, “Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch.”

“As I was walking past the room (in his house), the TV was on, and I think (Ochocinco) made the statement: ‘The last time we’ve seen this many girls on the field was the last time we played the Steelers,’ " the normally mild-mannered Starks recalled. "I wish I played defense at that moment.

“Chad is who he is, but some things you don’t say. Yes, you’re trying to get TV ratings and trying to further your career, and I applaud that. But don’t talk about the other team, especially if you know you’re going to see them twice in a year, and you haven’t had the best success in your entire career against that team.”

Yeah, maybe you shouldn’t say things like that, but Ochocinco’s comment is pretty mild by his standards. And, actually, so lame that it hardly required a response from Starks or anybody else. Come on, Chad, you’re shooting a reality show, and that’s the material you use?
