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?”

I'll be there for the first time. Partaking in this Black Out Juice, which sounds delicious.
Maybe we can have a WhoDeyFans vs WhoDeyRevolution paper rock scissor tournament or something.

Here is the real deal about WhoDeyRevolution

@bengals beer guy
my favorite of your ridiculous statements is that the sellout streak is at 51 and "going strong." we are 8-3 and need corporate help EVERY week to sellout, even huge games like the ravens.

i understand that u are a devoted fan, i am too. i just cant bring myself to spend real money to support an owner who cares nothing about championships or setting up a franchise with that goal. and i want that to end.

why would mike brown move the team? he has the sweetest sweetheart stadium deal in the history of the world.

The funny part is "making tons of money".
Mike Brown has almost one BILLION dollars of accrued appreciation in the Bengals franchised, for which he did nothing but SABOTAGE success. Think about it. And then whine about a blog that puts up banners and urinal cakes. Nice perspective beer man.

@ artist formerly known as Section 101

then you don't want the Bengals to be in CIncinnati... if you can't support a team like who they are ~ then lets get a new Cincinnati team, cuz thats what your pushing for, and when the Bengals do win a championship... you'll be proven wrong ~ might be this year, might be next year... year after... who knows!

@ FeedMikeBrownToAquaBengal:

SABOTAGE success? if you look at it economically, whodeyrev is doing the same thing as mike brown... just saying man... support it, don't support it ~ the bottom line is that everybody is making money here, some noble cause...

and it hasn't even done anything to help ~ wanna help... figure something else out

@ artist formerly known as Section 101

We NEED Corporate help because the economy kicked the crapper, don't give yourself credit where it isn't due...

If we want to change the team and get Mike Brown out, we need to lobby against the NFL and push lawyers into the mix that can convince a panel that he isn't competitive... a meaningless blog on the internet isn't going to do much

especially one that is profitable ~ thats all I'm saying...


And you call yourself a Beer Man...I read your diatribe...fie, I say

If this website makes money so what? That's what keeps it going. Hopefully, it will fuel enough creativity and effort for future Projects Mayhem. Whatever chicken feed's leftover after that, if any, can go to the chickens.

I've wondered at times if this isn't all just to promote Blackfinn, but I've decided there's no reason they shouldn't benefit (they're kinda far for me to drive if I am to pound the lagers on Game Day...I wish they would sell the mugs, etc. online)

The point is that we continue to voice our dissent, against the current Bengals 'management' structure and to also have a sense of community, i.e. cameraderie, while doing it...

It's *really boring* when the Bengals lose, and stuff like this website makes it not so boring and also makes me proud to be a Bengals Fan,

instead of just an otherwise fool for futility

If money doesn't go to Mike Brown, and instead does go to *anyone* else, I'd consider it some measure of success.


Beer Man, I think maybe you are a plant for Mike Brown. Anyway don't accuse me of the reverse, because no one's reading this drivel...

VIVAWHODEYREV


Wouldn't surprise me if MFB told the coachs(players, too?), "You get me 8 wins this season and that'll be good enough(mediocrity?). And if you do, there'll be a little something in your christmas stocking(can of Spam and a sleeve of crackers?).

It can be labeled sabotage or not, but when his goal is to be mediocre(which I believe he's content with because it at least keeps corporate sponsors which = bailouts) but anything out of his mouth less than "You mother fuckers better win our fucking division, and make a run at the Super Bowl!" is not putting the staff/players in a proper frame of mind for winning. One can be a saboteur without performing a physical act.

I hope they don't take they're foot off the gas, and just coast for the rest of the season. It would be a shame since they've pulled so many games out of their ass. I guess the next few weeks will tell the tale...


I think the WDR makes the NFL nervous...because both the WDR's idealogy and its methodology are in fact spreading like wildfire, to places like Oakland, and Detroit, and maybe even Washington, etc.

With subversive activity like this, the NFL stands to lose a considerable amount of revenue...at best, I believe that there could be standards reform across the board, for how an NFL team may be run.


That's why we're starting to see more aggressive plants on this board, because the WDR's methods/idealogy is in fact affecting change, not just in Cincy but in other teams/markets.

Like I've said before, this 2009 season seems too weird, to poetic, too scripted to me,

* with the Bengals being on Hard Knocks, and then
winning with some consistency (leading the AFC North)

* The Steelers noticeably sucking,
and in a different way than is their norm

* The Raiders *beating* the Bengals, as if to keep
things interesting

* the Cleveland expansion-Browns doing horribly

* The International Press Image Patriots still making
a statement

* The Cinderella Saints having a Season of Seasons


It's like the WWF (see the Raiders Game), or Reality TV (which is really scripted, btw)



You mentioned:

"...but anything out of his [Mike Brown's] mouth less than "You mother fuckers better win our fucking division, and make a run at the Super Bowl!" is not putting the staff/players in a proper frame of mind for winning."


Well, Marvin Lewis kinda put it that way on Hard Knocks (episode 3 or 5 I think); when he told the Bengals locker room:

IT'S *YOUR* TEAM; FIND A WAY TO FIX IT!!!
REACH DOWN INSIDE, AND BE A FUCKIN PRO!!!

I thought that was pretty awesome; I hope they heard him; I think they did.


The NFL (not just the Bengals admin) is nervous, because fans are getting wise, and fantasy leagues don't require a ticket.

The only one who's not nervous is John Madden [and Maybe EA Sports for that matter].

PS Personally I'm glad the WDR hasn't been overly active this season, for the sake of the actual team of Bengals players on the field...because we are Bengals fans, and we want them to win, I think even if it means a 'lull' in the action for us.

Would someone please move the "Coors Light/Miller Lite" mug.....PLEASE?!


Clean your plate, young man (there's still some ass there), and then maybe later you can have some boob(s), if you still have room

Yes the site is called "Who Dey Revolution" and yes, the founders, writers and readers want there to be some sort of change, or, "revolution" but when it comes down to it, ITS FU*CKING FOOTBALL. It's a game. It's entertainment. Relax.

Look, the Project Mayhem tasks last year didn't change MFB's stale ways. Fine. But during a miserable, laughable and embarrassing season, this site provided a source for a lot of fans to vent frustration over 20 years of miserable leadership. This site became a source for some pretty funny entertainment along the way, too. While our team wasn't a blip on the NFL radar, national outlets like NFL Countdown and Sports Illustrated were talking about us, the fed up fans and the Mayhem tasks that many participated in.

Don't get me wrong, the message is real, we want change. But, it's a FU*CKING GAME.

Finally, if you think anyone really profits from this site, you're out of your tree. I would imagine the writers and those involved in financing Project Mayhem tasks are still in the hole. The billboards were paid off through our donations, but then you have 1000+ custom urinal cakes and multiple flights during training camp with messages in tow. That stuff is expensive. This is a freakin' Bengals blog that has a fairly small niche. Nobody is getting "Facebook" or "Google" rich around here.

BengalsBeerGuy: Your site looks good. It's nice and professional looking. But what do YOU bring to the table? What niche do YOU fill. None. It's just another fan website. No underlying meaning. No message. You are a dime a dozen. Not saying that it's bad. I'm just sayin'.

@ SnuffleUpagus

Thanks, I like my website too... it might be a dime a dozen, I realize this... but I'm not too worried about that, my niche isn't about making money ~ it's showing my appreciation for Cincinnati with my friends

I would just like people to come to my website and have a little fun reading on many different outlets including one's from bengal associated rss feeds...

you guys need to calm down, it's just my opinion ~ i promise I'll put my opinions down for now... have fun revolutionizing

sorry I pissed everybody off...

make sure you tip the beer guy at blackfinn

take care

how about that bearcat game? that was awesome!!!

Take pride brothers. Their only sellin' out thanks to corporate money. Even with an 8-3 record, that's a good sign.

Bearcat game was f ing unreal. Let's go Nebraska...
