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?”

SWB There are a bunch of locals that are used by the Bengals. For example, my friend is a chiropractor and has worked with Colosimo in treating many Bengal players. I still think as a whole the Bengals medical staff sucks but my guess is by having these doctors and specialists not officially part of the team, the cost to see them rests more with the players than the organization.

@WhoDeyFans - sounds right to me the more I learn about it. I also think it works out from the doctor's side of things. In that article, it appeared that malpractice liability is even more brutal for team physician's because of the financial consequences of botched treatment. In other words, it keeps costs down for both Bengals and doctor to not be an official employee.

Just shows that writing by way of knowledge brings so a lot depth and relevance to types readers. Thank you for sharing.

I've mentioned it before but it bears re-mentioning: a few years ago, the Yankees experienced a higher-than-normal slew of early-season injuries. They fired the training staff, got a new one. Didn't even wait for the season to end.

They send a message to the rest of the league: we take our $#!+ seriously down here, we don't #^(* around, and that's why you want to play here. You're among professionals here.

What's the message the Bengals are sending?

last season was luck and this season is luck.
if our FO had their shit together we would have a juggernaut.

sloppy mistakes:
chris perry instead of s. jackson
justin smith instead of e. steinbeck
resigning madieu williams
l.coles and bryant instead of housh

this list is not complete and i dont care.
how many of our positions of current need had we already fixed and then let go/fucked up???
