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?”

Glad to see I have done my part to help Mikey make money.
The way I see it by dropping my season tickets I saved Mikey the cost of paper, envelope and postage on the letter to season ticket holders for single or 2 game packs.
And the cost of sending out the bills for season tickets.
Your welcome Mikey, just doing my little part to help your bottom line.

so i guess everyone who buys season tickets is a d-bag. no one is a bigger d-bag than you. someone who rips on peoples spelling and grammar on a blog. this isn't english class. also someone who can have no hope for a good football season from a team that looks good on paper. yeah they have an unknown the offensive line, but so did the ravens last year and it worked out pretty well for them. also the super bowl champs o line was pretty poor. by the way most would agree we have more weapons on offense than they do and they managed to score points. i'm pretty sure we can also. and if this team gets off to a good start the season will sell out. the opener is gonna sell out and so is the second home game vs. pitt. 3 of our first 4 games are very winnable if we start out 3-1 or better this season will sell out. that's what i want to see happen so you guys can cry that everyone is an idiot in this city for buying tickets. go root for another team as a bengals fan i don't want you as a fellow fan. a real d-bag is someone who rips on other fans of the same team you supposedly like for buying tickets to go watch that team.

Joe, I can understand where you are coming from as I was once a douchebag myself. I even did the WhoDey chant at my wedding reception instead of giving a real heartfelt speech. However now I realize how big of a farce this team really is. Yeah, they look sweet on paper but they don't have the management or leadership to put together a mature NFL team. I will tell you now that this team will never win any playoff games under the leadership of Mike Brown. Until he leaves this team, you will experience nothing less than false hopes and frustrating weekends.

Joe - when you link spam our site with a season preview that might as well have been written by a 5th grader then you are opening yourself up to my wrath.

I said at the end I didn't mind his optimism. The Bengals might be good next year. He just made a poorly written, poorly argued, dangerously factless piece of crap to justify his prediction.

But you're right. I am a bad fan. I'm sorry for trying to help force the team to make the necessary changes to win consistently instead of taking the crap they give me. My bad.

" I will tell you now that this team will never win any playoff games under the leadership of Mike Brown."

Wow, bold statement. Sometimes the quarter lands on its side you know...
