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?”

wdr is still employing tiresome ball-baby contributors to write this swill. you muppets have fair and reasonable points, but it gets lost and degraded when you let your personal bias throw a whine and cheese party over chad ochocinco. he's on our team and for this year he's better than any 2 draft picks that we would have stumbled on to last year with our broom closet scouting department.

stick to the basics about not being a patron of mike brown's business until he delivers a quality product, but get over yourself on being "tired" with chad. if you focus on getting a gm, then future problems like your perceived chad situation won't present themselves because they'll have dealt with it long before the grievance manifests itself. it's "tiresome" to see you argue for a gm and then also argue to overhaul the team while mike brown is still in power. for the time being, i'd rather rally against mike brown and enjoy chad's services as an elite wide receiver which you'd be an ignorant stool not to admit that he is.

Jason -

I agree with you 100% except for the last bit - I think Mike Brown is behind the Hard Knocks decision, and his reasoning is solely to boost ticket sales. Has anyone else wondered why Carson Palmer started to become incredibly more public and exude leadership qualities (again, to the public, as we don't know what goes on in the locker room) we hadn't seen before precisely when season ticket deposits were due? If things were going smoothly, the season were sold out, and merchandising revenues were stable, I doubt MB would allow it. This is a PR move to encourage fans to dish out $.

I hope WDR urges everyone to watch, but not weaken their resolve to boycott spending.

Tsk, tsk, tsk. Votasi must be a liberal. Always telling someone else what to "stick to" or "get over". Chaz must be a conservative. He "urges" others, instead of directing them. See the difference, Votasi?

So far, I've only see you bitch about others' opinions, and then tell them what they ought to do. Maybe you need to get laid........

P.S. On the subject of the topic,I think Jason hit the mark pretty much. I can do without the gold-toothed showboating and a little.....no, a LOT.....more output. Output talks, showboat walks.
