My love and hate affair with Carson Palmer, Part 2

Shannon Sharpe of CBS NFL Today asked Oakland Raiders QB Carson Palmer if he quit on the Cincinnati Bengals and the city by demanding a trade. And to his credit, Palmer was honest. Palmer answered,

"It was a selfish decision. I knew what I was doing. I knew the ramifications. I knew that it was what was best for me and what was best for them."

I wrote about this before. But hearing him admit that he abandoned us, hurts even more. So now we know Carson Palmer doesn't have scruples. He didn't care about his Bengal teammates or the fans that loved him. Yeah, the Bengals are a dysfunctional professional sports team. But instead of facing the adversity, he ran from it. He left his teammates and fans behind. Well, this Bengals fan says, "Good riddance."
