Forget Chad Johnson’s football career. There are things in this world which are far more important than a game. I know that’s hard to fathom with the calendar directly in the middle of August, and with football that really, really matters only a few weeks away.

Although he’d surely like to find meaningful employment again, right now Johnson’s main priority should be righting a wrong, and reconciling with his wife whom he’s been married to for only just over a month.

Logically, some dirty sleaze ball operating out of a parental basement has watched a high-profile domestic incident unfold, and he’s reportedly seeing dollar signs.

Never change, celebrity obsessed culture. Never change.

Meanwhile, Johnson’s wife Evelyn Lozada released this statement (via Aaron Wilson):

It is with great sadness and much trepidation that I release this statement addressing the domestic violence incident that happened this past Saturday. I am deeply disappointed that Chad has failed to take responsibility for his actions and made false accusations against me, it is my sincere hope that he seeks the help he needs to overcome his troubles. Domestic violence is not okay and hopefully my taking a stand will help encourage other women to break their silence as well. I’m grateful to my family, friends and fans for the outpouring of support during this difficult time.

Johnson has been silent. He hasn’t made a public comment, and his usually irreverent and absurd Twitter account hasn’t been updated since Saturday.

UPDATE: A seemingly inevitable conclusion to this story has now become a reality. Lozada has filed for a divorce.
