Just food for thought.
I think the lopsided rule is dumb, but that's a NFL union question.
As another poster pointed out, Carson quit on the fanbase, which is harder to forgive. A player quitting on his team is never a good thing. Some of us are just tired of diva sports players. Maybe I'm old school, but how many players quit on their teams in the 60s or 70s the way that Carson did on the Bengals?
But moreover, if Carson kept his word and filed his retirement papers, I think you'd hear less people up in arms.
