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?”

It's all about one man in Cincy: Mike Brown. It's not about winning, it's about winning his way and if he can't win his way, he'd rather not win at all.


The most frustrating thing about the Bengals is realizing that Mike Brown does not think the way most people do. He believes things are up when everybody else says things are down, he beleives things are black when everybody else says they are white,etc. He is going to do things his own way even though his way has been proven wrong for 18 years. He doesn't see it. He thinks he is the only one right and everybody else is wrong! How many times do you hear him rationalize his failure by starting off his sentence with "In this league"? Well, you idiot "In this league" you are a laughing stock,a doormat for other teams. The only reason that the rest of the owners don't laugh in your face is out of respect for your father and the fact that you do make money for the NFL, thanks to the "taken for granted but hopefully not much longer" fans.

We will all promise you that if you hire a GM and he does well we will give you full credit for being smart enough to realize(after 18 years)that you don't know anything about how to win "in this league".

I am very tired of hearing him blame the teams failures (his failures) on "injuries". Every team has injuries. Winning teams learn how to overcome them. MB uses them as a crutch and an excuse.

I agree. The injuries excuse cannot be allowed. Look at the list of team injuries, the Ravens are two or three spots behind the Bengals.. didn't they just have a stellar season? Maybe if we drafted well our backups would be better than the guys at a fourth grade pick-up game. Or get some trainers with a diploma, not some tore up fraud with an internet degree.
Whatever the solution is, I dont really care.. I hate to say it but I like the recent decisions the FO has made. If they keep filling spots (like hopefully getting Tank Johnson!) then I will continue to feel like Mike Brown wants to win. The draft and FA after the draft will be a huge indicator as to what direction the Bengals have decided to turn. I would love to remain a Bengals fan, but I may be forced to go elsewhere until Mike "the Retard Son of a Hall of Famer's Bitch" Brown dies or sells the team to someone who knows football and does things THE RIGHT WAY!

I'd like MB to own and not manage and am just as dissappointed with instititionalized losing that is the Bengals but... I like Mikey's stance to not was $9million + in dead cap space to deal with a big baby last year. You let the inmates run the asylum and every year its another guy acting like Chad. The Packers have dealt with that. Chad is getting cheaper to dump but I'd rather punish his punk a** with the 4 game "conduct detrimental to the team" suspension.

And you know, if the Bengals were run right, we wouldn't care how this was handled either way, because we would be a contending franchise each year.

I've been a Bengals fan for so long that the point of this post doesn't make sense to me.

in mikey boy's defense, a letter such as this would cost at least a couple hundred dollars in postage alone. the bengals don't have a couple hundred dollars just lying around to be thrown about willy-nilly on things as foolish as keeping the fans happy or informed.
