Bolded is key. If this were some anomaly, I could blame Carson Palmer and Mike Brown. But seeing how this is nothing new, and there have been many players in the past who have demanded out, I cannot blame Palmer for this disaster. Mike Brown has been the only constant since the Bungleness began back in the early 90's. Yeah, I may be disappointed Carson Palmer opted out, but so be it.
On a somewhat related note, it's unbelievable to me that our "GM" won't trade him, even at the expense the team. What a stubborn, foolish man. I've seen 3rd graders act more responsible.
