WDR's End of Season Party at Blackfinn is now over, and has been deemed a great success. Many of our readers were able to come out and meet the writers, crush out dozens of Miller Lites, and vent their frustrations of Bengals management in general. Blackfinn was more than generous with the never-ending supply of food and the freshest Miller Lite outside of Nick Lachey's kegerator. We had several fellow comrades win free t-shirts in contests of strength and skill including a beer chug, push-up race, and a break dance competition.
Not only was the atmosphere fun, but was inspiring as well. I myself met a diehard Bengals fan who has not missed a home game since 1984, and who in fact made it to Riverfront Stadium in time for kickoff on the day of his son's birth. What we would like to highlight here is that a man who has not missed a game in 24 years, decided to join the comrades at Blackfinn in lieu of giving Mike Brown any more of his hard earned dollars. This shows that the revolution is taking hold firmly in the foundation of Mike Brown's empire... within the roots of his unconditional support base. The most hard core fans are not going to put up with his BS anymore.
WDR has pointed this out before, but I will reiterate that big changes are coming to the Bengals, in one form or another. One type of change we can expect to see is on the Bengals' income statement. In a recession, small businesses and the independently wealthy are not going to sink their dollars into a crappy team. They will take their money elsewhere, like the Bearcats. This could mean millions in lost business for Mike Brown. Mike's other option is to bring in outside help in the form of a GM, relinquish control, and to win football games at all costs.
Sorry to get deep on you there... But the point is that the post season is upon us and we all look forward to watching the Bengals off-season decisions. Stay tuned to WDR for your Bengals news, raw and uncut.
