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;


    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?”

Hard Knocks should be extremely entertaining for any NFL and/or Bengals fan. I had no ties to the Cowboys or Chiefs and found the last two seasons VERY entertaining. I don't necessarily know that this will spur ticket sales that much, but it might. I think that only winning at this point would do that. Interesting point that the front office never mentions "winning the Super Bowl" as a goal...Often mentioned is "getting to the playoffs" but never "winning a championship"...

I know what we have been hearing for years now and apparently it never gets old with mr brown and away we go...... They (meaning us the fans) might not be happy but " all we need to do is win a game or two" and everyone will feel better with the situation.

Not only this but, mr brown has many times stated that he does not mind the other teams fans at PBS because it gives everyone the chance to get the NFL experience

And yes, HBO will demonstrate a brilliant coverup urrrr well, "good job" portraying the bengals as a real NFL team.

The unfortunate reality is the multiple buses packed with steeler fans will infiltrate game 3 and the bengal season will be over after that except for a few wins in December over last place teams.

Well I think that episode may have done more to help your cause than any email or phone call could have. Seeing Mike Brown run personnel meeting. WOW. Here is your 19 dollars

What did we see/here tonight? "Compete" numorous times, "cussing" numorous times, and the ability by HBO to actually think or show that while the team and players go through the motions that they might care a bit. The show was boring and painful to watch "child please" who really cares? ie child please, fans, players, coaches, and child please, last but not least the brown family.

I do have to say the ending where the player was told only "ability" is the reason players are cut was fucking excellent and "child please", amazing as after the last 19 years who has the "ability" to question anyones ability????

Thank you mr 'ability" brown

Punkin and her Pa were pathetic. They came off as the total rubes they are. Embarrassing for the city and the franchise. What did Punkin say? "We gave him a fair contract. yuck, yuck!" What a frickin joke! Child, please, Punkin! We are looking at 4-12, people!

After seeing that show, I think Hard Knocks can only help the Revolution. Mike Brown looked like the bumbling idiot he is, and you can kind of tell HBO agrees due to the footage they chose to show of him.

Its a lucky thing for HBO it is a reality show; you can't make comedy like that up.

And also what is up with their new motto "Fight Back"... fight back to what? "Fight Back" implies we were once somewhere.

Who was Mikey trying to switch from defense to TE after Utecht went down? Did you see the looks on the faces of Hayes and the other position coaches? Hilarious! "How about playing Quan Cosby as the nickel back. He's got real football ability."

It illustrates how cheap the Brown family is that they won't sign veteran players as legit replacements. They're just moving folks like Shirley around like interchangeable drill bits. Also, I loved it when they showed the price gouging by Brown/Blackburn for TV rentals!

What we learned from Hard Knocks is that if you drop a pass, Carson Palmer will kick you in the balls.

That was truly terrifying to see Mike Brown running the personnel meeting. Shouldn't the head coach be doing that? If anyone should be deciding how many players at each position the team should keep it should be the coach or the GM - oh wait, there is no GM. That was a really shocking scene.

WDR: Could you help out with the production of this year's douche bag tshirt? - "Child PLEASE Mike Brown!"

Have not seen the show. Wanted to see reviews/reation to first show before ordering HBO (knowing it repeats during the week).
Question. No mention of the banners?

Wow i'm all for wanting the Bengals to get a real GM like Pioli caliber but why does everyone one here claim they don't have one?? They do, granted it's MB which isn't a great one but he is the GM just as Jerry Jones is the GM for Dallas.

What the f is "Spongetech?"
