Default Bengals Season Preview - Most Dysfunctional NFL Franchise

This is the scathing opening to the NYT Fifth Down preview of the 2011 Bungles

Carson Palmer told us everything there is to know about the state of the Bengal organization. Given a choice between making over $45 million to play a game he loves in front of tens of thousands of adoring fans each week as a member of the Bengals or making $0 to do nothing, Palmer chose nothing. No need to delve deep into the reasons – we all know about stingy owner Mike Brown, who spends peanuts on staff and amenities, who cares as much about team chemistry and players’ character as your local D.M.V. cares about customer service and who regularly makes the kind of business decisions that would cause even M.C. Hammer to cringe. As ESPN’s Rick Reilly so cleverly put it, the son of the legendary Paul Brown has had a career in football that “peaked upon birth.” The Bengals are quite simply the most dysfunctional franchise in the N.F.L. (and that’s with the Raiders as competition).
