Cardinals defensive lineman Darnell Dockett has Antonio Cromartie's back after the Chargers fined the defensive back for tweeting about bad food at training camp.

Mike Jurecki of XTRA910 radio in Phoenix has the audio. I've found Dockett to be entertaining and charming in interview sessions. That comes through during the interview. Dockett also explained his philosophy on Twitter.

Dockett: I enjoy Twitter. Twitter is a device where you can actually communicate with your fans. You can give your opinions. You speak your mind every day. I'm a Gemini, so I have a lot on my mind. I've got this one like demon side where I think of everything aggressive. And then I got this one like real good-hearted side, so I'm good and I can get on there and relate to a lot of people.

Dockett has also made a request to be called "Nine-O" instead of by his name. Teammate Kurt Warner has responded by overpronouncing "Darnell" whenever he sees Dockett. Dockett has responded by calling Warner by his full first name, Kurtis.
