.....not showing up for training camp?? Is this cause for alarm. Lewis said he didn't have any idea where he was. This can't be good.

Running back Corey Dillon indicated after practice Monday that he apologized to his teammates for missing Sunday’s team meeting. But no one is saying if he’s going to get fined for what is usually $5,000 for missing a mandatory meeting, although the conventional wisdom holds new head coach Marvin Lewis is going to ring him. Dillon told his teammates it was nothing against them and that he wasn’t sending a message to them or the coaches, but that he simply missed the flight.

“If they’re going to fine me, fine me. Quit talking about it,” Dillon said. “Get it over with. Let’s move on. It’s not like I’m going to be missing $5,000 anyway. It’s no big deal. Fine me, let’s keep it moving.” Dillon said if anyone should get fined, its Delta Airlines. Apparently Dillon got to the airport late in Seattle and security wouldn’t let him on the plane and put him on a later plane.

“I pleaded with Delta. I called the (Bengals’) office in Cincinnati, but I couldn’t get anyone,” said Dillon on why he didn’t phone ahead to tell of his predicament.

For his part, Lewis said he was “disappointed,” and called the incident “unfortunate.” But he also said it was in the past and “it’s time to move on.

“Corey’s been great,” Lewis said. “He’s excited about playing football this year.”

I'm excited about Corey's season this year. The team should be more competitive for various reasons, which will keep them from having to abandon the run so early in the game. Coach Marvin Lewis has also expressed a desire to involve Corey much more in the passing game, which is an asset of Corey's that the previous coaching regimes have wasted and neglected thus far in his career.

i am expecting no more from dillon or the bengals this year. there is no reason besides a new coach that they would be any better. dillon has a bad line and he will never be any better as long as he is in cincinatti

I think we'll see the same old Dillon. A couple big games, but mostly 60 yards rushing and no TD's.

I don't like the attitude he showed, saying blame Delta. If this was you, going to an important work event wouldn't you get to the airport at least 2 hours early, since we all know we live in a different airline world post 9-11? Dillon I'm sure waltzed in at the last minute and expected special treatment. Also viewing the $5,000 fine as 'no big deal' shows a lack of respect for the employer. It isn't about the money, it is about being disciplined by your team. Show some remorse. Accept some responsibility. Don't blame Delta and say 'fine me - get it over with, it's no big deal'.

No wonder he is a chronic failure. I'm sure he blames his O-line for that one.
