OK, is it just me, or does anyone find it incredibly pathetic that an athlete that makes millions can't/won't pay his taxes... Or is too stupid to hire someone to pay them for him?... Do you think Marvin will be "passing a hat" around to help Chad out of his predicament?!.......
Chad owes $13K in taxes

Disgruntled Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson, who wants out of Cincinnati, owes more than $13,000 in taxes on his Walnut Hills home.
According to tax records at the Hamilton County Auditorís Office, Johnson owes a total of $13,063.35. Of that, $12,780.30 is delinquent.
The latest taxes were due in February.
Johnson bought the $252,000 condominium in 2004, according to property records.
Since then, he earned $10.25 million in bonuses with his 2006 contract on top of a base salary of $2.5 million that year.
Much of the property taxes he owes would have gone to various tax levies including nearly $8,000 to the Cincinnati school district.
Johnsonís agent could not be immediately reached this evening.
Under a new program, the county treasurer is sending certain delinquent tax accounts to a collections agency later this year. It is unclear if Johnsonís account would be on that list.
