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?”

oyyy

I agree with this post. It starts with the top and trickles down.

If the bengals brain trust or lack that of really wanted to succeed in business and win games they would make necessary changes.

They take the least path of resistence to maintain nfl status quo for the under acheiving.

MB does not like the business of the nfl and does not respect the fans or this city for all he has been GIVEN. I believe he does not understand why we or anyone would care so much about a football team.

When you look back at his few spoken words about football he only exhibits any passion whatsoever when he talks how they can't compete financially with the other teams.

When it's concerning the team/players it always the win a game or two we will be fine, we are competitive, blah, blah, blah.

And trust me, the players and coaches are not happy and proud to be associated to the organization. It's no secret inside the league other teams/players laugh and joke at them but say, hey they are paying you so what the hell.

Also, if berding is running for office we have to have fun with it and hopefully stop it.


I said something similar to this already in the comments of the post wherein the courtroom transcripts were initially linked, but I'll repeat here:

Mike Brown is not monumentally stupid. His confused answers are unlikely to be the result of stupidity or even senility. Rather, the more confused he can appear and the more vague he is able to be in the courtroom setting, the better it serves him. We know Mike Brown is an unethical man. He scarcely says or does anything without reminding us. Why should it be hard to believe that he would deliberately mislead people even under oath? It's a ruse - Mike Brown is very intelligent in that respect.

Intelligent as pertains directly to successfully running a football team? Another matter entirely.
