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?”

Bengals trainers routinely diagnose injuries as bee problems.

LOL...finally! I was starting to get worried you guys were going to let his GM comments go unnoticed.

No problem Showtime. I am here to fight for the cause! I hope you guys have something up your sleeves for the so called shepeople optimistic weekend starting tomorrow with the Intra squad scrimmage and the big ole Black-Orange Mock Game on Saturday. I am sure a banner would get some big time attention at the Saturday game. Keep up the great work and I loved your commentary on the Cowboys GM scenario where MFB falls way behind and then tries to make a comeback. Nice Work!

An entertaining read. Satan Brown is truly a mental mess.

I honestly think Mike Brown does this just to give WDR content. There is no way he can say these things and really believe it. Its just amazing.

While originally watching this interview on Sports Wrap a few weekends ago, this site was the first thing that popped in my mind. My mother (who doesn't even watch football) laughed when Mikey Boy said "it's worked in the past".

fucking A

Just a note...he said "queen," without a doubt. I listened to make sure.

Truly 200 pounds of shit in a 50 pound bag.

"It's worked in the past" when his daddy was making the decisions. Never under his leadership. He never wants to talk about the failures of his team on the field, but criticize the stadium deal and he's front and center to defend it in the media. What an arrogant piece of shit.

"We have been there and we will get there again" may be the perfect statement to sum up Mike Brown.

Seriously, where has HE been? I want to to explain exactly what he means by this statement. Its just so absurd, it is very hard to comprehend.

This is an *amazing* WDR entry; thank you for it. I continue to be amazed at how much time it must take you guys to keep the site running and current, and yet every day I log in you do not disappoint. I am one of those fans who sold PSLs at the end of last season, PER the revolucion, so frankly I hope a) the Bengals sort of suck this year and b) PBS does NOT sell out, both so Mike Brown maybe loses an hour of sleep this season with worry. Ever since P Doc said in an article that Mike Brown is ANTI-FAN, PRO-MONEY, I decided right then and there Brown is getting NO MORE of my dollars. He is such a jerk and I support WDR all the way.
