Carson Palmer reportedly had beer poured on him as he walked off field

Carson Palmer reportedly had beer poured on him as he walked off the field at Paul Brown Stadium following the Raiders’ 34-10 loss to the Bengals on Sunday.

Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reported on Twitter after the game that fans poured beer on Palmer as he walked off the field. Tafur did not specify whether it was Raiders or Bengals fans who poured the beer on Palmer, but we’re assuming it was the Cincinnati fans.

The game marked Palmer’s first in Cincinnati since he demanded a trade away from the Bengals after the 2010 season. Palmer was drafted No. 1 overall by the Bengals in the 2003 draft. He went 46-51 over seven seasons as the starter in Cincy and made the Pro Bowl twice. He led the team to the postseason twice, but after a 4-12 season in 2010, he demanded a trade and said he would never set foot inside Paul Brown Stadium again. That declaration proved false on Sunday.

Palmer was traded by Cincinnati to Oakland once Jason Campbell got hurt last season, and he has gone 7-13 in one and a half seasons as the Raiders’ starter. He was 19-of-34 for 146 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in Sunday’s horrific loss. Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton, who was selected in the 2011 draft, upstaged Palmer by going 16-of-30 for 210 yards and three touchdowns.

The Bengals clearly got the best end of the Carson Palmer trade, so the team’s fans really have no reason for such poor displays like that one. If they want to protest the way Palmer treated the franchise, do it like this:

While we don’t have clear video of the reported incident, at the end of this video, you can see Palmer running into the tunnel, and a fan throwing a drink over the railing toward the area he was running by:

    Losers,But if youve been to Cincy you would understand after all its Ohio!

    Agreed it was bad behavior.  I will talk to my fellow Cincy fans about not sinking to the level of Raiders fans (or Cleveland either).  You guys can keep that mantle.

    No matter what fan you are, THAT is totally class-less. No player deserves that.

    I agree…. Carson Palmer DOES have poor taste and bad manners.  But I thought we were talking about this beer pouring incident?  LoL.

    Attending a Cincy football game is akin to attending your final divorce hearing.   It lasts forever, and you feel cheated at the end.

    Cincinati is used to having a REAL  LOSER like Boomer Esiason.

    At least Cincy fans don’t throw beer bottles like Cleveland fans do. Do you think the Cincy fans are not going to give Palmer some grief for Quitting on his team & the city, get real. Getting a little beer poured overr you is a lot better than a beer bottle upside the head like he would have gotten in Cleveland.

    I was wondering why my video had 3000+ views all of a sudden.

    I love how there is ONE drunk idiot doing something stupid, and it’s now “Cincy fans” and “Cincinnati”.  What about all the other people that don’t throw anything?

    To be fair, there were at least two drunken idiots, though, because when the Raiders players that got ejected were walking off the field I saw a plastic cup flying in their general direction as well.
