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?”

Was this a surprise? Up 31-14 at halftime I needed only to remind myself the Bengals have NEVER beaten the Bills under Mike Brown, and that a total implosion would be utterly Bengal-like. I was confident in their ability to find a way to blow the game. I don't understand why anyone wouldn't be by now.

As I was telling somebody earlier, the worst the Bengals can be is a boring 7-9 or 6-10. I WANT them to be an embarrassment now that the playoffs are a dream. To lose by 18 points, after winning by 21? At home? Against a 1-8 team? A journeyman quarterback?

Really, the ineptitude is mind-boggling. And hilarious...

Just a quick question... ...why not write to that 'turd' Goodell and ask him to remove the Bengals from the league because of inherent issues with the owner? What could it hurt?

Ya know why that won't work? I said it before, I will say it again, MBB WILL tell Goodell that the moment he tries any of that shit, MBB will go to Congress demanding investigations on the monopoly/anti-trust legislation that has given the NFL what it has today.

See ya guys FUCKED IT UP! You could've gotten rid of MBB over a decade ago if you weren't such spoiled children. Now you have someone actually saying that a practice facility is part of what would have made this team better (aside from my 'snide' remarks to that issue). Ye reap what ye sow. bwahahaha

Well cryin about it is not gonna get any thing done! its time to take action. Im off to get a VOO-DOO Doll to use on Mike Browns ASS!


The NFL should have set/static salary spots/levels for each franchise.

These levels would be based on the franchise's previous year's revenue.

Example: let's say you're allowed 3 signs/drafts for the upcoming season.

You have three levels you can assign for your drafts, one/limited sign per level.


The *set/static* amount of each level will be based on your team's previous year's revenue.

This (or similar) would keep owners from spending too cheap on any player, and also from spending too much on any player.

This, coupled with the current NFL draft design, would eliminate the Mike Brown ownership model, and make the league much more interesting.

@Hofbraunow: It's not at all *about* salary levels.

It's about having scouts and a general manager and decent coaches picked by people who know something about football.


I'm sure the above model would need more educated tweaking, but it seems to me that the two main points for argument, in any would-be function, are:

* an NFL team's record/ranking for the previous season

* an NFL team's revenue for the previous year/season


Based on these two points, the NFL could make a reformed model,
which would prevent the kind of ownership/franchise abuse we've witnessed, as with the Bengals.

I believe the NFL as a league is just as vested in this as Bengals fans (and players) are...

No promising NFL player should have to rot out their vital years on a losing team (ex. Barry Sanders)

'It's not at all *about* salary levels.

That's true, but Mike Brown has the final say, and any scouts/staff (or warm bodies for that matter) have to work within Brown's constraints.

I believe such constraints would be discouraged or eliminated with key NFL reforms.

We keep reiterating the same point. All of us who use this site knows mike brown sucks. Time for a project.

My son gave me this idea for a new project.

I don't believe that the Bengal's problems are the players. This year, I think we've lost more games because of coaching...both during the game and what is emphasized during practice.

So for our high draft picks this year we should be looking for new coaches. And if there's a good one available, a better *owner*.

Can you do that?

Just a thought,
Randy

Barry Sanders?

Barry Sanders?

Barry Sanders won a playoff game muvva fuvva!

The mike Brown - Cinci-Tucky striped PUSSIE'S have not.

I'll take Mr Ford's and Fontze's playoff record any day.

Jesus Fucking Christ. Really? This non-performance today (along with the last two Tampa games, and Oakland last year) is MFB epitomized (unless it's draft day) (Peter, kijana, Akili, Dan, David, Andre,........ Carson)

This cockstain spent 12 years fucking up and then finding a franchise quarterback. Remember????

Then he got one. And thoroughly wares his NFL existence. Carson is not a "has been" he is a "could have been" or "never really was"

FUCK

FUCK

FUCK

The only and I mean ONLY thing we have going for us now under MFB rule is that season ticket/luxury box sales are officially dead next year.

MFB knows he need he paper.

SO...........

He may be tempted to hire a big name and generate some hope. You know like 2003.

Oh wait it's MFB.

Breakdown let's do it Bengal style.

What's Bengal style?

-MFB- that Zimmerman can put a top 5 defense out there with my rotten produce. Katie lets............


Welcome head coach Zimmerman.

And another generation of bengals fans dies before Mike Fucking Brown.

It's not insensitive to hope.

Please Mike Brown

Please

DIE

The problem here is that the product is extravagant, wherein lies the utility it offers certain stadium-goers.

It's similar to designer bottled water.

Why the *hell* would anyone pay $50 for bottled water?

Answer: because they can, *and* because it cost $50, and they want people to know it cost $50...

I know it's stupid, but some people are like that...

And, Mike Brown knows it

if you live, shop or work in the Dimond, i imagine you have seen their progress. it is hard to miss. i love it. what is perhaps more impressive is the work it has taken them to get funding, and their persistence. they have started the mural without enough funds to finish it, working on faith that they can make this happen.

It's entirely possible that one or more of these ideas could have been a big success had we given it the college try. Instead, these ideas died on the vine -- usually in one minute of a 1:1, a couple minutes before a different meeting got a quorum, or in a hallway conversation on the way to lunch. Generating good ideas is only as important as getting buy in for them. If you come up with ideas no one wants to act on, you're about as useful as someone who doesn't come up with any ideas (but you'll be a lot more frustrated and bitter).
