Ex-NFL player Chidi Ahanotu ordered by courts to give NFC Championship ring to ex-wife

Ex-NFL player Chidi Ahanotu told courts in September he is unable to pay $130,000 in legal fees he owes in a custody battle with his ex-wife, so a judge has ordered him to hand over his NFC Championship ring as compensation. Ahanotu won the ring with the St. Louis Rams in 2001.

According to Pro Football Talk, Ahanotu said, “This court system is a farce. This court wants a man to hand over his once-in-a-lifetime accomplishment to pay some damn attorney’s fees? I could see if it was going to pay something for my children or my ex-wife.”

I guess football isn’t even exempt from the rules… what’s yours is mine.
