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?”

And we need to remember that the blackouts aare a part of life. The more casual fans will stop spending money if there are more blackout b/c they will have less exposure to it.

Coulda, Shoulda, Woulda! Tell me why people on this board refuse to admit that they had the chance to end all of MBB's shenanigans but for their own ego, they kept him? Ye reap what ye sow.

^ ????? ^

I say 25,000 towels because there has always been about 40,000 sheep that will never ever stop believing.

Mike Brown has succeeded in that, he has always welcomed other teams fans to partake of the NFL experience at PBS unfortunately, by doing this he has alienated lifelong Bengals fans and now many of us have picked other teams, better teams to follow.

Go New York FOOTBALL Giants

I got an idea lets just pile it on why not bring in pacman so slim as a friend to play with?

That way when JJ gets hurt we dont have to look far...

Come on you know it will happen.

Yes because Mike Brown get's all the money for ticket sells....Owait he doesn't because of revenue sharing...So the only thing thing that is being accomplished is blacking out the game for local fans....

Glad I live in Oregon

No he does not but he does however get a lower % if the money is not there to be shared. It is a 60 40 split and if you think 60% of a few mill is the same as 60% of a few thousand is the same WOW not to mention takt there will be fewer consesion dollars also which i am pretty sure they doo not share.

WCH - Good point, except that not all Bengals fans live in Hamilton County so we couldn't vote that Stadium into oblivion and tell MB to GTFO of dodge.

Banned - Obviously you have a limited mental accumen, so I will clarify... Mike Brown DOES get some of the money, and therefore NOT buying tickets is moral imperative. The other half goes to the NFL. I like watching football, but the NFL is run by a bunch of morons. Why would you create a Black Out rule for local fans if you don't sell out a game? Obviously there is a reason that the games are not being sold out (and its not JUST the economy). So why punish the fans instead of the OWNER of the Team in question. Do you know what the NBA does? If you (as an owner) cannot make your team competitive and interesting to its fanbase (in other words ARE INCOMPETENT) then they'll take your franchise and give someone else a shot thats not just interested in milking the Team and the Locals like cash cows. What the hell happened to personal responsibility?? Both the NFL and 'Nati's Bengals ownership are at fault here, not us. There are plenty of idiots like you around these parts willing to part with their money for a dross product, so I'm glad you atleast moved far away from here.

Banned, read Ryan's response.

And besides his response, boo-freakin''d think we're depriving people of water and oxygen here, when we're just trying to force some competent management.

If you can't see the game during a blackout, you're seriously not trying hard enough, esp. in this day and age. Just wishing on a star that the Bengals will luck into winning with these incompetent buffoons in charge will just lead to decades of frustration. Take it from a 32 year old fan who knows.

In the meantime, on to the story at hand. Here is the single biggest challenge the Revolution faces: fans of other teams that love Cincinnati as a cheap alternative to see a game they know their team as a good chance of winning.

And it might still have an effect of at least embarrassing the owner when he sees that most of the fans in the stadium are of the other team.....except this man is literally incapable of embarrassment. You could have 70,000 people dressed in nothing but yellow and black, with one side forming letters matching the Steelers logo, the other matching the Heinz logo and it would all go over Mike Brown's head because he is incapable of shame.

I've said this before, but what the hell, I'll say it again: If I had to choose one moment that I will not miss (now that I've given up my season tix), it's that first time that the Bengals crosses the Steeler 20 and the PA announcer says "The Bengals have just enterened the HEINZ RED ZONE", followed by hysterical laughter from all the Pittsburgh fans sitting nearby.

Further proof that Mikey doesn't have a clue.

It's easy for me to see a game during a blackout NFL Ticket + not living in Ohio =P...

^None of us care, Douche Bag.

Does anybody know if any website will stream the games live? I'd rather not listen to it on the radio, but it's better than nothing.

There's a guy on that said he's going to be doing all the Bengals games. I'm not going to give out his name and chance ruining it, but you can find them.

im pretty sure the bengals had about 50 blackouts in the '90s pre-carson and mike douchbag brown is still running the team. sucks ass, but true

Wyatt, all you have to do is report him to the NFL in the same manner MFB reports an airplane to the FAA. Give me his name, I will do it!

I appreciate it Wyatt.
