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?”

Meanwhile, Roger Gooddell is trying to figure out how to get NFL fans to be more inclined to attend the games, i.e. live at the stadiums...rather than be reclined to watch them at home

I think both are good, just depends on what you're in the mood for...also both what you can tolerate, and what you can afford

I hate to side with MB, but how is this Mike Brown's fault? Because he negotiated and took a good deal? The city was on the bad side of the trade. Someone wins someone loses in every trade.

The proposal to cut Hospital spending is just politicing that will never end up happening. They want to make you believe cutting spending for the hospital is the way they can plug the gap, which couldn't be further from the truth. If you believe that, they hope, then of course you'll support a tax increase. False negatives are the oldest trick in the political handbook: "would you rather raise taxes, or cut health support to the needy?" However, that's not really the choice. The amount of wasteful spending and broken budgeting undertaken by the hill-billys in office is egregious. Now they want you to believe they just need one more little tax increase to fix everything - otherwise the ONLY choice is to cut budget to the hospital. What a joke. You are smarter than to believe that.

Furthermore, empirical evidence shows that tax increases never succeed in raising the revenue they forecast. People don't have to move far to consume or live just slightly outside the relatively small technical boundary of the city. Raise the tax on cancer sticks? People buy em in Newport. Raise property tax? People buy houses in Ft. Thomas. Raise the general sales tax? You see where this goes.

Don't be fooled by the political spin. This problem is the direct result of the gross mismanagement of the budget by city officials. Now they want to lay blame elsewhere and beg for tax increases to bail them out. Don't buy here, and don't buy it anywhere else.

...back to actual bengal talk:

did anyone see the nfl total access segment with a mic'ed marvin when we closed out the browns for the second time to go 6-0 in the division?

besides loving marvin just repeating the same sentences over and over and over to these toddlers (which cracks me up), it was particularly interesting to see when the ref called chaddy for an illegal formation and then when marvin grabbed an instant photo of the alignment, the ref was like, "my bad". i remember being frustrated throughout the year at shit like that, but if you see this clip, you'll see chad talking with marvin about exactly how the play was supposed to be and how he did his part.

so yeah, the refs can fuck it up and i figure we should be a little more cognizant of that, and also, chad pretty much knows his shit. he loves football and i'm glad to have him when he's required to be there.

...one last side comment: hobby has a piece on house commenting on shipley. not for sure, but i think housh gives carson the why-don't-you-suck-my-left-nut with a sly left-handed compliment..."carson never throws receivers under the bus when it's not his fault..."

WHO DEY!

CedBen got busted for assault, according to PFT. Punched a bar employee in the face over Memorial Day weekend. Nice.
