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?”

you guys are jackasses.... no longer visiting site - done.

Have you heard? All you can eat pancakes for $4.99

See you there.

mmmm, grand slamwich

oh jim, comeback, comeback, we want you to comeback. Talk about a jackass, stupid sheep!

I saw this coming a mile away. MFB thinks his team is a winner and then goes and tries to prove his point by telling the good ole fans, um, we did not raise the price of tickets the past 2 seasons. LOL I guess he forgot about having problems with selling out the games this past season. He thinks this move will improve ticket sales? Good Luck with that MFB and that tough schedule you have. Not only this, but I am sure the re-signing of Zimmer will bring the Sheep back so MFB thinks. How about the OC in Brat, MFB? How is your team going to score with this clown at the helm of your offensive scheme?

On a per-playoff win basis, the Bengals are by far the most expensive game in the USA.

Seriously? Is this type of crap considered comedy in the mid-west? What has happened to this site? Just because it's a slow period news-wise for the Bengals right now, doesn't mean that intelligent articles can go by the wayside.
Write about possible trades this offseason (Boldin, Marshall), draft possibilities, conference championship or even new project mayhem stuff. No more of this "Bill Cowher's chin", "Mikey likes Denny's", "Brat is bad" garbage. Don't get me wrong, I like reading funny/satirical articles as much as the next guy, but the last two articles on this site have made me want to punch a baby because they're so awful.

CarlPickensClause/BengalsAnthony13 - You obviously have never lived in the "mid-west" if that's how you think it's spelled. Bengals Fan Forum or whatever DennyG2 runs might be more your speed. And for the record, anything involving Mikey Boy and Grand Slam's is comedy gold, so you better get used to it.

Sly --

I know you pride yourself on being "the comedic genius at WDR", which is like saying you're the smartest kid with Down Syndrome, but let's call a spade, a spade: the topics that I mentioned in my previous post on this site haven't been funny. If you're going to post ridiculous things like this article, be aware that you're going to be a target for criticism--no matter how much grammar-bashing of others you hide behind. But, if you find it entertaining, then by all means, bring on more "moons over Mike"s hammy" jokes or whatever else you'd like along those lines. It's really no sweat off my sack.

I had a friend in grade school who had downs syndrome and he knew how to spell midwest. He also was a huge seinfeld fan. Food for thought.

I am soooo stoked! After watching the powerful JETS score so many points in a game "17" while utilizing the powerful running game, I can't wait for 2010 here in Cincinnati.

We are so lucky to have the benefit of the football knowledge and prowess of Mr. Bob Bratkowski to lead the Bengal offense to success. In 2010 his unique ability to scheme imaginative ways to score 17 points a game will be greatly appreciated.

I am leaving a phone message right now with a Brown family member to renew my season tickets this coming year.

Listen,

Can't we stop all the arguing and come together on one key point? At least Mikey Boy hasn't signed Brett Favre.


Yet.

Did anyone read the ESPN article where Bob Brat said that its hard to score in the red zone because the defense knows what he is going to call before he calls it? Why did ESPN even ask him for his opinion is beyond any reasonable thought....

Man, all this time I've been using the wrong business model. Thanks to Mikey, I now understand that in a down economy, when I'm having trouble selling out my inventory, the answer is to RAISE prices!

I'm so stupid! Why didn't I think of that?!

Speaking of ESPN, I saw on the bottom line yesterday that the Browns are likely to release Stallworth when he comes off his 1 year suspension....anyone else willing to go out on limb and guess that ole Mikey Boy will be interested in him to plug our WR issue? How about a Project Mayhem task where we predict Mikey Boy's next move...this one is a slam dunk. I guess it could be a good move depending on the price, but certainly not as good as some of the other FAs out there. Mikey Boy will get Stallworth at a discount and justify the ticket hike on his "proactive approach"

Marc I totally agree. I told a friend yesterday that Stallworth will end up hear.
Cheap player w/ a troubled past= Mikey all the way

Speaking of troubled WR's, Rae Carruth will be ready to sign on October 22, 2018.

I don't really understand the uproar of ticket prices being raised by an average of $2.30. I work at a University and tuition each year increases by 5 or so percent, regardless of how many new students are brought in or the state of the economy. It's a product of national inflation. It happens in all kinds of markets and/or businesses.
And, let's be honest, even though we're all pissed that they didn't win a playoff game or anything, they still had a pretty good year and Mike Brown does have an argument supporting why a ticket price increase is made. I don't like it and neither do a lot of you but if you were going to pay $63 to go to a game, most would pay $65 the next year for the same seat. Not supprting Mike's actions at all, but I'd also like to know how many other teams are doing something similar to this.

The only thing is, you are getting something out of that tuition increase in what is called a very good education and then you get to use that education to make money. What does MFB provide you for his increase? Laughter? Comedy Relief? Enjoyment of not making it to the playoffs again? Well, in 2009, only 11 teams made ticket price increases of which MFB was not one of them. Hmmmmmm I wonder why that was? Can you say, being a Loser? 2 teams made ticket prices decreases last year in Tampa Bay and Detroit.

http://www.teammarketing.com/fancost/nfl/

You see, MFB thinks his team is a proven bonafide winner and will continue to win, he did the same thing in 2006 when they won and made the playoffs in 2005.

Why aren't we seeing more stories like this??

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4857580

Or, a story on how two of the best PASSING teams are going to the Superbowl.

Or that it's a PASSING league.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/playoffs/2009/columns/story?columnist=clayton_john&id=4854687

The fact that the Jets got rid of 4 coaches after reaching the AFC Championship game with a Rookie QB and coach, and the Bengals are KEEPING Brat, is maddening to the point that it's hard to care anymore.

Seriously, what makes us think that MFB will ever change how he operates this squad? He never will.

TJanns -

Great post, Im glad someone finally pointed this out. I couldnt stop thinking about Brats comments and then seeing 2 offensive powerhouses make it to the Super Bowl.

Also in regard to the Jets firing of 4 coaches. This didnt have to do with poor coaching. The Jets apparentlty had multiple coaches at various positions. ie 2 DB coachs, 2 LB coaches, etc. The jets felt that they could do with out these coaches, they wont be replaced. I know this is hard to imagine considering the Bengals only have 1 coach per position, but most NFL teams have more than 1 coach at each position. This again shows the poor management and incompetence of the Bengals ownership and front office.

VIVA LA REVOLUCION!

Uh, I think the Japanese are trying to Bomb Pearl Harbor below. I think this place has been Spammed. You might want to remind him about Hiroshima.

LOL wow, so from what i've gathered about these complaints about ticket prices is that after making the playoffs MB in honor of all the bad seasons should in fact lower his ticket prices but then go out and spend top dollar in an uncapped year for free agents. Remind me to NEVER EVER let any of you run my business. I can see it now you'd pay yourself $100,000 a year and then sell all my inventory for less than what i paid for it.

Great job WDR, and keep up the good work...Mike Brown at Denny's...that's gold...

...you really know how to bring all the Japanese spammers and jims to the yard...

there, I'm done,
and I *am* still visiting the site : )
