Being from Cincy myself.... No Bengals fan around here wants the guy on the team since before last season.... The team is a joke, Marvin Lewis should have been fired many times by now but Mike Brown keeps him and tries to make the point that he owns the team any chance he gets.

The biggest joke is how many of the Bengals have been arrested even since the lockout started.

It sucks that people like Mike Brown are allowed to own a football team. The Bengals are going to be constant losers until he either dies or gives his business to someone else.

Please. Playing in the NFL is privilege. Carson isnt the only player in a crap situation. To issue such an ultimatum, painted him as a cry baby. Who would rather take his ball and go home, then play for the team that owns his rights. I lost a lot respect for Palmer.

You want to retire, instead of play for the team that employs you? Then have fun sitting at home. It's ridiculous.

Brown is an idiot for sure...but it's not like he hasnt tried to appease Carson. With the Owens signing and such. Palmer quit on his team and the fans. He deserves no sympathy.

Again with the whole "Nfl is a privilege so shut up and work" deal. If your job was ran by an absolute nutcase would you just keep working for him? I know I wouldn't, I'd ask for a transfer or quit and look for a better job. His is no different.

The Bengals are going to be terrible because they traded a declining receiver in his 30's?

Come on now. Brown has been a terrible owner for years. I don't think he deserves the benefit of the doubt in this situation. If Palmer turned into one of the worst starters in the NFL overnight Brown probably wouldn't hesitate to trade him.

And signing Terrell Owens? Please. How about building an actual team instead of signing a diva receiver? Brown has had more than enough time to build a consistently competitive team and fire folks that deserved to be fired. Yet he's done the exact opposite. Since it's clear that Palmer won't play, why not trade him and get more picks/players and actually try to build a team for the future?

Right. It's not like requesting a trade is a terrible thing. It's a business. Palmer has played there for quite some time now and requested to be traded. And Mike Brown is now acting like a little kid that got bullied and wants to "stick it to the man". It's not like Palmer couldn't possibly find employment elsewhere.

Not at all. Carson started a pissing contest, by acting like a child. He deserves what he's getting. He signed a contract that he's obligated to abide by. There are sooooooooo many players who arent happy with their current situations. But they dont all go cry about it. That'd be anarchy. To issue the retire or trade ultimatum was an absolute joke. And following that up by publically announcing the selling of your house. Cute. It was a power play. The NFL is a very public domain. The guy didnt just quit on his employer, but also thousands of fans as well. Carson deserves a great deal of blame for this whole ordeal. Again, I have no sympathy for the guy.

Right, I'm sure Brown would honor the contract if Carson lost his right arm. Let's be real here. These contracts aren't set in stone. These players are seen as commodities. And as soon as the value diminishes, they are going to be traded or cast off once they aren't useful any longer. Brown is trying to circumvent this reality and attempting to take the moral high ground, but he's really just looking like a dumbass.

I really liked Olson, but they didn't have any plans to extend his contract.

Yea...so let me get this straight. Carson HAS to honour his contract right? But...Mike Brown can cut whomever he pleases even though they got multiple years left? Carson has given his beast years to the **** hole of a team. The guy wants to do a little better and I don't blame him.
