The Professor retcon was a pretty big bone of contention. It didn't help that the explanation for who the Professor was changed every few issues.
I think the big problem with the run was a series of weak endings. Dogs of War was a good storyline that ended with the big new villain just...leaving. The Devil Hulk thing went nowhere, too. And Banner having ALS got wrapped up by the Leader popping up out of nowhere and handing Banner the cure.
I think the run was partly a victim of Jenkins' success at the time. He became a big name at Marvel, got a ton of work, and seemed to put his Hulk stuff on the backburner.
