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?”

"Until the Bengals hire a GM, expand their scouting department, let football minds make football decisions and make other common sense changes that winning teams make, we will not financially support the team." I could not have said this better myself and I am doing it-- I am yet another season tickeholder who ditched my tickets on account of Mike F*cking Brown. I think my buddies thought I would cave as the season drew near ... and the slight excitement of Hard Knocks ... but no. MFB is not getting a cent of my money this season; he does not deserve it. I am thrilled to hear about this week's preseason blackout (hopefully) and the home opener blackout (hopefully). WDR continues to make me grin and I shall continue to be faithful to it. Viva!

Is there anywhere in cincy we can go to watch it via satalite? Or on the internet?

I must say that although I never intended to support this team financially this year (or any year going forward until i see what consititutes a real attempt to win at all costs), it hurts to (possibly) not be able to watch a game, even a pre season game. Denver will hurt even more.
That won't change the committment level on my part, but sacrifice is HARD! Unless you're the Brownburns and you sacrifice winning ideals for pocket lining, that appears to be easy and natural for those tightwad/selfish/disingenious/pompous assholes that run this team.

I hope it is not a few thousand and the stupid local TV affiliate tries to pull the Browns move by buying up the tickets by splitting with the owner so it can be seen locally too include the Rams game and Denver game. We should not be worried though, MFB won't even dish out the money for Smith so I am sure selling out the games is the last thing on his mind, chump change, right.

RK,

If the games are blacked out there is nothing you can do to watch them unless you go somewhere outside of the local viewing area. Not even satellite will show locally blacked out games.

However, there WILL be a place you can go to watch (real) football on Sundays, drink for cheap and socialize with other WDR members. Stay tuned, the wheels are in motion...

Front page story on ESPN about the Bengals by Elizabeth Merrill.

Which I guess is a big duh, since it obviously is interviewing site members. Anyway, good read.

Tiger J@w:

MB is too cheap to go that option

like I've been saying, Hard Knocks may be the closest thing you'll get to seeing a home Bengals game if you live in Cincinnati this year. I couldn't be happier.

As a Saints fan, I just want to say that if you guys buy your Bengals tickets on the secondary market (from scalpers or other fans), you won't be giving Brown any additional money and you can still root for your team.

The only way Brown would get money is if you buy NEW tickets from the box office or Ticketmaster. If you buy them off eBay he's already seen his cut of that money.

So just buy your Bengals tickets off eBay or from a dude on the street corner for half price and sneak in a flask.

Best wishes to you all - this brings back memories of our fight after Katrina when our owner wanted to relocate the Saints to San Antonio.

We think that the Cincinnati Bengal players should purchase the rest of the tickets, and distribute to less fortunate children/people!

I can not believe that your opinions on this topic are so close to mine. Thank you for sharing it which make me more confidence on my stand.

Your articles and photos are really shocked me. This pen can be a weapon! You are gifted writer with a pen, perhaps you will be a power conferred by the citizens of a great politician

Chess is one of the best strategy games of all time.
