Hey, this is not to be mean, but do you blame the guy. When he was with the Bengals...he was pissed that they didn't have heart. You know...I would hate to be the worst team in football, losing week in and week out, and see your teamates sitting there laughing on the sidelines. Spikes seemed to have the same problem in Ciny. It seemed like for a while those are the only two guys that wanted to win! I dunno....just my opinion. However, the team has changed and I give you guys credit for that, the players now have a taste of winning and I see them giving it their all now!

He started whining about leaving when Rudi was showing his stuff while he was injured....Spikes said he wanted to go a few years before he left but dillon all the sudden wanted to go when he heard he would have to share time with a better back...I am glad he is gone it gave Rudi his chance to shine and boy is he shining better then corey did....If he had heart here his records wouldn't have been broken in one season by Rudi so that alone shows what kind of heart his whining ass had.

Alot of times the good teams with a shot to win , also our the teams with the money, ala New York Yankees. I would love to win a ring, but first I would love to take care of my family. Barry Bonds did go to his dad and godfathers team not to mention close to his hometown so you really can`t blame him.

The measure of every player is championships. Doing it together as a team. That's what Chuck Noll preached and it was successful. That's what matters, forget the rest. That's why I believe Terry Bradshaw will forever be a richer man than Dan Marino.

I agree but if there was free agency in the Super Steeler days I have to wonder how many of those guys would have left for Big money.?

Hey B21 - the old old Corey Dillon story line seems to bring out the bitterness in some Bungles fans.
I will go along with Bigbensgirl7's take on this one - putting up excellent numbers as a RB while your team shows absolutely no sign of improving must be one of the the most demoralising things for a player to endure.
Dillon could have handled the situation better I grant you - but the way your fans turned on a player who was the lifeblood of your franchise for many years was a pretty poor show too.
We had no end of Bengals fans gloating that we had just bought ourselves a 'cancer' with our trade deal for Corey.....didn't turn out that way did it?
Its amazing how much difference winning more than 6 of your regular season games will make to a players morale.
I think its safe to say both teams come out ahead on this trade - you got a promising young safety in Madeiu Williams (I believe this is correct) with the 2nd round draft pick and focussed on an excellent young RB in Rudi.

I have to say I think you are changing history in retrospect - the team that Rudi is part of is far superior to that which Corey was stuck being a part of.
How Dillon put up all them 1000yd years with such a terrible all round side is anyone's guess.
Dillon is one of the 5 best backs in the league - currently.

ITS PIG-SKIN BABY!

I agree we both made out with the trade, The only thing that ticked me off was he was on tv downing the bengals and rudi then he said he didn't down them, I seen both shows....And read the papers, That to me is no class.... But to other ppl it might not mean a thing. Also when he threw his stuff in the stands before he was even traded or released was poor class...I won't say I hate the guy I just disagreed with his actions like you stated.
