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?”

It really just sickens me to watch year in and year out the Steelers in the playoffs and Bengals sitting on their hands waiting for next year. It will always be waiting for next year with Mike Brown's Bengals.

At least we know how much God loves Jesus Warner......and Even God Hates the Steelers!

Before I respond to this post I would like to say that I have not and will not renew my season tickets.

With that said... what I am about to write might get me removed from the revolution... I...gulp... found myself rooting for the Steelers last night. It goes against everything I know. But I respect the Steelers and their organization even if I hate all of them. I cannot say the same thing about the Ravens. The Ravens are and will always be the Browns to me.

Just thought I would share this awful time in my life.

i hope Wiz has some sht up his sleeve for the old team... new WDR member this week: my wife. she pointed out that the steelers do something semi-illegal every single game and there is no backlash. she notes that dirty is not tough.

I have never loathed a group of people more than I do the Squeelers. But the Cardinals give me hope that yes, the Bengals could make it there, too. If only they get a GM, some O-linemen, etc. etc.

Matt,

Fear not Comrade... its Katie Blackburn's Kool Aide that she spiked your drink with in order for you to be pulling for the Steelers. Personally, I would have enjoyed seeing that whole stadium get swallowed by the earth and both teams lose, thus crowning the Cardinals by default. Ergo....... lets just hope Arizona pulls this one off in 2 weeks.

Now, with that being said and our universal hatred of the Steelers on the table... I gotta admit... they run a helluva organization. It makes we wanna throw up when I see their success, however you can't help but respect what they do. Year in, year out, they put out a quality consistent winning product that contends to win the Super Bowl. It is a solid organization from the ground up (or as it should be, from the top on down). Hate Pittsburgh with all your heart, but at the end of the day you gotta give respect where respect is due. Mikey Boy, we can only hope you've been taking notes for the past 18 years. Doubtful, but we can still hope.

Go fuck yourself, MFB.

I prayed for Roethlisburger to get hurt, spent the first half thinking about how terrible it was to do that, then prayed for it again in the 4th. I have never hated anything as bad as I do that organization. I want Ben's knee to get blown out and watch the Steelers get set back 2+ years. Hate.

Matt,

Cpt. Steve-O said it well, but if I may add a bit...

As a Bengal fan and a Kentucky basketball fan, in honor of the upcoming SATs:

Bengals:Steelers::Kentucky:_____. The answer, of course, is Duke. We Wildcat fans hate 'em with a passion, but you have to respect what Coach K has accomplished.

Matt,

I have to share this with you. It's from today's column by DJ Gallo of ESPN Page 2:

"It's too bad Ray Lewis didn't get back to the Super Bowl. That would have been quite a story. A redemption story. A story of faith triumphing over tragedy. An American story. Because I think every little American boy grows up dreaming of one day playing in a Super Bowl immediately following an offseason in which he turned state's witness and pled guilty to obstruction of justice in a double-murder case. I know I did."

I hope that helps you to feel a liitle better.

My heart leapt for joy when Himes went down and was on the bench. I prayed "Please Lord, let this rotten SOB be on IR for the Super Bowl."

F**k Himes Ward...he's like a Smokey Robinson that cheap-shots people.

But most of all, F**k the Stillers...f**kin' Stillers.

You weren't the only one, Scott Ricketts. I'd have paid good money to see him bleed or cry or twitch.
