Recently, a representative of Carson Palmer says that the quarterback has $80 Million in the bank and no longer needs to play football for money. Carson also continued to draw his line in the sand by saying he would retire before ever playing for the Bengals again. In fact, he says he will “never set foot in Paul Brown Stadium again”.
FOH Carson Palmer! This is yet another example of a rich, spoiled athlete crying and bitching when times get too rough, and trying to force his way out of an adverse situation instead of man’in up and playing harder. For all of the fans that I hear defending this kind of crap, we may as well just eliminate drafts, trades, contracts, and everything else involved in the business of sports and just allow players to pick and choose where they would like to play year after year.
We all know that the Bengals ownership is a bunch of cheap, dirty rotten scoundrels, and has never appeared to be interested in winning much, but I don’t feel sorry for Carson ONE BIT. He knew that the Bengals were losers back in 2005 when he signed a SIX year extension on a deal that still had THREE years left on it. So in essence, no one told your ass to “re-up” with the “Bungles” for 9 years and $118.75 Million. Money talks and back in 2005, an excited and EXTREMELY rich Carson Palmer talked, and said, “Hopefully this is the last place I’ll end up playing. That’s so rare in this league these days. It’s so rare to see a person have a 5, 8, 10, 12-year career in one place. And I feel very fortunate that it looks like that’s going to be my future.” Well, it SHOULD be your future, because if I were the “Fungles”, I’d call your bluff and make you retire. It’s not like you’ve played well while the rest of the team has stunk up the joint like dead fish. Your game has had that “dumpster in a downtown alley” smell to it as well…So SHUT UP and play, or retire. Cam Newton and/or Blaine Gabbert may be around when the Bengals pick anyway…Chump!
