You mentioned the Raiders. Talk about a place that had plenty of teams with great talent and no one could get along.
While his speaking out may not have been the most politically astute or polite thing to do to the Billings' fans, I have a feeling if he re-signed, all would be forgiven.
He lives in Billings for football season then goes back to Oakland.
[quote=""Indoorfootballguy""]Doesn't Dixon live in Everett, Washington? If so, then I think Tri-Cities and Wenatchee have a great chance at landing Dixon. Venom WR Phillip Goodman is also great friends with Dixon[/quote]
Many football players want a new challenge. How many athletes move from team to team. Billings should be happy he brought the town 3 championships, and wish him well in wherever he ends up. If he stays in that city, he should be met with great pride that he did as much as he did for the community. Chris is a fine young man, and deserves no backlash for looking at new opportunities.
Elway is a poor example as he selfishly put himself above all. He forced the teams hand many times even getting Dan Reeves fired even though he guided them to 3 Super Bowls. A man that lived a very troubled personal life through Denver. I wouldnt compare that to Chris at all.
