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;


    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?”

Count me in for my ticket... A happy kid at the game beats me cursing like a sailor.

Great idea guys, this sounds like very worthy cause. My only question is, will the kids really be able to say that they have seen a "live NFL game" after watching the Chiefs play the Bengals?

312 Row 4 Seats 7 and 8 are in.

Is this fair to the kids? Sounds like a cruel way to introduce them to the NFL. Can't we all just chip in and buy them arena football tickets? Bearcats tickets? Doesn't Thomas More have a football team? Heck, send them to see Elder or Colerain. It would be better and more uplifting for them.

Count our tickets as donated Julius.

Great idea! See, WDR gives back! We're like Robin Hood! Except that instead of stealing from a rich tyrant (Mike Brown), we're trying to recoup some of what he's stolen from us. I'm not a season ticket holder, but I'll try to convince some friends/family over Thanksgiving to donate.

Great idea.

I am donating my tickets to all the remaining games. Let's be honest- the only positive thing left as a Bengals season ticket holder is a $201 tax deduction. ($67/ticket * 3 games)

Julius, Season ticket renewals are going out soon, what can we do about getting people to not renew them. I have thought about encouraging fans to buy Bearcat tickets, a new Plasma TV and the NFL package--all for less than season tickets. The ONLY way to effect any change in this situation is to hit 'em in the pocketbook in what I have dubbed the "Stop Feeding the Monster" campaign. I am donating my 3 tickets to the LYS and NOT renewing them. Sad to say it is first time since 1968 we have not had season tickets in our family, but we all voted and can't bear the thought of giving MB one more cent.

Unfortunately, our season tickets have been passed down through our family and my grandfather would be devastated if we finally got rid of them. Sorry Gramps, but when you go to that giant endzone in the sky....

My brother from the same mother has dibs on the Chiefs game and I will do everything in my power to bribe him with lawyers, guns, and money so that he gives up the seats.

If so, 108 row 12, 10/11 will be graced with kind-hearted Bengal faithful, still so naive in their adolescence.

Wow, GREAT idea...if this is what's happening now, man, this Who Dey Revolution is gonna be off the map!!!


Great idea....just mailed them in.

This is a very kind hearted and good idea. I don't know how much "Mayhem" it causes, but I hope it will bring some public focus on the cause to reform the Bengals. Nice idea, guys.

another good idea to get noticed is to have the kids hold up a sign that says thanks to the WDR for letting them go to the game ;) i would give my tickets up if i had any but luckily i was too poor to buy tickets this year.

just dropped off 2 more tickets at the LYS. So glad I won't have to waste my Sunday down at this miserable game.

Any info on how many kids actually got to attend the game?

Do you know that it is high time to get the loans, which can make your dreams come true.
