    Pickens gets my vote in this poll.

    Corey Dillon was sick of the Bengals' nickle-and-dime operation. The Bengals were a miserable team with a miserable front office. Dillon simply didn't want to put up with that any more.

    He wasn't quiet about his dislike of the organization, and that's why some fans still hate him. But he said things that needed to be said.

    Throwing his jersey into the crowd was excessive and unnecessary, but I give the guy a lot of slack for having the guts to say the Bengals organization sucked and he wasn't going to deal with it any more.

    I think a lot of fans were still in Dillon's corner right up until half way through his last season, when the Bengals were finally showing that they were heading in the right direction. Instead of being happy that they were finally winning, he cried about not getting his carries. All that time talking about wanting to be on a winner and then when his team finally makes a playoff run, he's whining about not getting his reps and causing problems in the locker room. Add to that throwing his gear into the stands, oh and going on national TV wearing a Raiders jersey and calling Willie Anderson a "chump." This is a guy who laid his body out on the line for Dillon so he could get his yards and Dillon's thanks is to insult him on his way out of town.

    Don't forget about his statement about how he'd rather "flip burgers" than play for the Bengals earlier in his career. There are alot of people out there who do flip burgers who would gladly take Dillon's talent and be happy to play a game for a living. Right up there with Takeo Spikes talking about "getting his slave papers" to get out of Cincinnati. It's not indentured servitude. It's football. Get over yourself.
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    He helped the Patriots to a Super Bowl championship. He struggled through injuries this season (like most of his teammates) and played hurt.

    The Patriots aren't the kind of team who would tolerate dissention. If Corey were causing problems, he would be on the bench.

    I'm not saying he's the classiest guy in the world. But I do admire him for calling out the Bengals organization for the flea-circus it was.
