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?”

"His act is wearing extremely thin with me and I'm sure with OTHER players on the team." (emphasis mine)

Jason, either A) you are on the current roster and as such have supplanted ThemeCreator as my WDR Hero, or B) you're not on the roster and you're taking this pseudonym thing way too seriously. ;)

Mr. Doyel, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul...Gregg Doyel does not rule. Actually he is a big heaping bag of douche

gregg doyel is the absolute worst, most unprofessional sports "journalist" of all time. he is all shock value and I appreciate WDR pointing this out.... but the solution is to just pretend he and his articles don't exist. don't read them. don't talk about them. ignore him and he'll go away because the only thing he can do is write idiotic controversial drivel.

Nice pic, Doyle....What an ass-grabbing douche

Vince has it right. The fact that you are talking about Gregg Doyel only ensures Gregg Doyel's continued employment. CBS might even promote him, raising his salary and awarding him another "G" on the end of his first name thanks to all the buzz he's creating. If you want him gone, spread the word to never click on his stories. If he stops getting hits, he stops being relevant.

Doyel is a grade 'A' ass clown, Carl beat me to the punch, but just take a look ta his pic! When he did the show with Mo on 1360 few years back (for the record I liked it but it's apparent now that Mo carried it), he was all "MMA... MMA" He wants to be a super cool MMA guy. Lame

It's actually not the *worst* article I've read. While it's easy to criticize from the outside, every author needs as many subjects for copy as possible. With the Bengals upcoming schedule, the best subjects of conversation are Larry Johnson, the possibility of "trap games" and.....well, in Doyel's mind, this.

But the way Doyel inserted himself into the article was a bit "pot calling kettle black" ("Chad shouldn't be so self-centered! Oh, and let's get back to *me* and how *I* revealed this attitude in Chad......"). It also revealed that he wanted to bait Chad into saying something that would make good copy for him and Chad wisely rejected it.

Chad still has a lot of that "look at me" attitude, no doubt. But I think there's a grand difference between some sideline pouting and punching a coach in the locker room. As long as the team shows that it's operating in a winning fashion, I think Chad will be a big part of the ride.

Plus, he wrote another one today dredging up B Scott's past, and while it was somewhat complimentary, it was definitely "damning with faint praise" as the old saying goes. Basically a hatchet job on B Scott's character with the "well, it's not who he is anymore" in an attempt to go "See? I don't hate the Bengals, even though I tried to get Chad 8-5 to pull a TO." This guy is a huge douche.

My response to Mr. Doyel via email -

"As a military officer, I hate guys like you - goading journalists. Self said, you knew what you were going to write before you started your interview. In this case, there is no correct answer. Either Chad agrees and you win, or Chad disagrees and you see malice. I understand the technique of writing what you see, but perceptions, while most commonly accepted as truth, are not always such. Real journalists get into the story rather than simply perceiving it. Then they report upon something that the average member of his readership would not normally be able to experience.

We all see Chad’s sideline sideshow. Tell us something we don’t know… there is more to Chad then what you see. A lot more."

Doyle is a douche fag. I would like to kick him in the face.
