Who Dey Revolution Manifesto

  • Preamble

    IN THIS TIME of perpetual Cincinnati Bengals incompetence and futility, with zero playoff wins in the nineteen seasons since the WhoDeyRevolution Godfather, Paul Brown, passed away in 1991 and handed the team to his fortunate son, the Despot, Mike Brown;

    Introduction

    WE, the members of the Who Dey Revolution, in our fervent dedication to the Cincinnati Bengals and fanatical desire to transform our hometown team into perpetual Super Bowl contenders, call for a popular revolution of fans to demand comprehensive reform to the managerial decisions and approach of Cincinnati Bengals ownership, management, staff and players, and hereby call for the adoption of the following Who Dey Revolution Manifesto:

    Manifesto Demands

    THAT the Mike Brown, Katie Blackburn, Marvin Lewis, along with every other member of the Bengals management, staff and personnel, state publicly to all Bengals fans, “I will do everything in my power to help the Cincinnati Bengals win a Super Bowl;”

    THAT Mike Brown will hire a general manager, drastically expand the scouting department and relinquish all control of player personnel;

    THAT all training, rehabilitation and medical facilities are considered best-in-class compared to other NFL teams;

    THAT the management fill the team only with players who fit the system, both mentally and physically, and are not reluctant to makes changes to player personnel when needed, regardless of cost or loyalty concerns;

    THAT offensive and defensive line depth is considered the top priority for all player personnel decisions;

    THAT all decisions made by ownership, management, staff and players, both on and off the field, are judged only by this criterion: “Does this help the Cincinnati Bengals win a Super Bowl?”

Mike Brown is an entitlement baby. He hasn't earned anything his entire life because everything was given to him - his daddy handed him a $100M+ football franchise that he built from the ground up. Look at how Mike Brown has handled that.

He doesn't even comprehend the idea of civic involvement, nor would he know the first thing about taking a leadership role in a project like the Banks. He just wants to play with the toy his daddy gave him. And he's not going to share his toy because it's HIS.

The stadium could have had a retractable dome and incorporated a convention center to give the city some bang for it's buck but Mikey wanted an "open air" stadium because "football should be played on grass". When Mikey's grass died (big surprise) he made the taxpayers pay to replace it with fake grass-thanks Mike.

You have never heard of the Bengals community fund. It took Marvin Lewis to get that going. Mike is about as cold as they come and he makes no apologies for being that way.

I am well aware of the community fund and it has Marvin's name on it, not Mike Brown's, which is why I ignored it because I don't want to give too much credit to Mikey even if he does support it.

Obviously that was Marvin's brainchild as there was no LeBeau, Coslet or Shula community fund? Certainly there is no Bengals community fund.

Pal - you have some documentation about that retractable dome and convention center stuff? Would love to see it.

A had a small role with the group who was tying to locate the baseball stadium at Broadway Commons and remember the issue being brought up that the Bengal's stadium should be a dome and a convention center associated with it to help pass the issue with the voters.(see Indianapolis on how to build the correct stadium/team). It was probably reported in one of the newspapers. I also remember Mikey squashing that proposal quickly with the natural grass thing-he wanted nothing to do with it probably because it would mean he would have to share his "house".

Let's just face it, folks... Mikey Boy Brown is simply a mistake -- a mistake that we have to pay for. I hate to gloat (nah, I don't -- really) but I was telling people all of this way back when. I feel so superior now... NOT!
