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;


    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?”

MFB has used the words stuck with me in the past but I find it hard to believe it would be placed by him on paper, email, or text to anyone let alone a season ticket holder. The bottom line is there are a base 40,000 season ticket holders that they do not really care about wins/loses only the fact that they can go root for their team any given Sunday. They see only the one Pat Sims play, not the big picture.

Until those idiots can comprehend the facts of the situation and/or even care about them it will be as it is. A true movement to have MFB pay the county to get out of the lease and leave the city is a first and only resort however, the 40,000 idiots still out number us.

i knew that cocksucker would use last season as an excuse. i knew it last season when cosmetically, things looked good. its no surprise to anybody, but he's never going to get it.

its utterly amazing. what a fucking failure of a human being.

i'm more pissed off after reading this than I have been after any of the 10 losses this season.

Wow, a reply letter from President Brown!

Hail To The Cheap!!!

I see Tebow and Haynesworth on the horizon...

: )


That is all.

The Mike "You Are Stuck With Me" Brown soundtrack:

"Stuck In The Middle" - Steelers Wheel

"Stuck On You" - 'Detroit' Lionel Ritchie

"Happy To Be Stuck With You" - Huey 'Ray' Lewis and the News

We are 'stuck with' him, lol....ahh, shoot.

Mike Brown is like herpes or diabetes, there is no cure. We just have to live with it as best as we can, taking the few wins a year as our treatment to keep us going, though symptoms continue to flare up yearly.

We're just stuck with it... I mean him, nevermind, it was appropriate.

thats it. thats what he has to say after 20 years.. we are all stuck.. i havent gone to watch a game at a bar since the tampa game.. ive only seen the monday and thursday night suck fests... i love that team.. and the colors and the stripes but nothing will change until that man is dead. dead.

im a fan.. i was at dave shulas last game and as he ran off the field at candlestick the last voice he heard was mine calling him a number of curse laden names..

after 20 years... nothing has changed. there were three years of hope..('03 - '04 of growth.. now.. that is all gone.

last sunday.. it was half time when i got off work and i went to the gym..

Stop buying season Tickets and merchandise. Put this dickwad out of business. Or people in Cincinnati just love having a shitty team!

What are you "gripin'" about? Mike 'Mr. Burns' Brown can do anything -- say it with me yet again (and now) ANYTHING, he wants to do. You were upset about it last year (until fortunes struck that they won when they shouldn't have and teams within the division lost when they shouldn't have) and it didn't change. It didn't change for 20+ years -- Nothing, NADA, nix! You could have gotten him out (or at least called his bluff) back in the mid-90's when you could have voted down the Stadium Tax -- but ya didn't. Ye reap what ye sow!

What you are experiencing right now, is the way that they negotiated this deal/tax etc., as I've said before... ...MBB can afford to spend a whole season until the day he dies, with NO paying fans -- he would STILL make a profit. It is people like YOU that enabled him to enjoy such comfort. You had you chance and now you will have to wait another 20+ years before you can extricate that 'tick'. Just don't be stupid another time around.

In the meantime, quit bitchin' and do something else on Sundays. The concept is VERY simple!

WDR (to Mike Brown): "We are fuck with you"

He won't even spend the money to have someone rewrite his letters to sound more professional and less offensive.
What a doosh

AAAAAAGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!! Too much, read a letter to the editor yesterday written by a guy in Delhi. Basic Jist was that he was just happy to have a pro football team, and literall wrote the words "I wnat to thank Mike Brown for providing us with a team." AAAAAGGGGGHHHHHH! Then this............ kotw, I think you are correct, there are more fools like this delhi resident out there than there are fans that see the problem.
wch, dude, you post the same garbage every time, pointing the finger at all of us for not voting correctly 14 years ago, and for still paying attention to the team. Take your own advice buddy, let it go, if we're all so stupid and are part of the problem, DO SOMETHING! Until then, you're just another hypocrite posting anonymously on a site designed for fans who want better for this franchise. Take the stick out of your ass or waddle yourself onto another bengals site please.

That's seriously appalling that a business owner would be that blatantly rude to one of his customers....especially in this particular business. I think we should all gather up all our Bengals gear...shirts, hats, coats, all of it up with a letter explaining how we will refuse to go out and purchase new gear until the team is respectable...and ship it to the Bengals front office. As all the others have said, nothing will change as long as the fans continue to enable this ass clown.

I love the out-and-out lie of it all: "I cannot give you the response I suspect you would most like to hear." LIES! Re-phrase to: "I *choose* not to give you the response I suspect you would most like to hear."

If someone asks me for a million dollars, I can in all honesty say "I cannot give you that." I cannot because I *don't have it!* Mikey likes to frame it in terms of the idea that he can't control a thing: "by golly gee, I can't sell the team or hire a GM, you know...these things are out of my power....."


Jerry Richardson takes “full responsibility” for Panthers’ struggles
Posted by Mike Florio on December 7, 2010, 11:28 PM EST
Panthers owner Jerry Richardson, who keeps a very low profile, has penned a letter to the holders of Personal Seat Licenses at Bank of America Stadium in the midst of a disappointing 1-11 season.

“I know how difficult the season has been for you,” Richardson said in a copy of the letter obtained by Steve Reed of the Gaston Gazette. “As the person ultimately responsible for putting a team on the field, I take full responsibility for our shortfalls. It is agonizing that we have not performed at the level we had planned for and expected.”

Even this sorry ass franchise has some accountability. Just a little un needed juxtapositioning, because I wanted everybody else to be as pissed as me.

I am reaching the breaking point, fellas. I can't take this dipshit any more. Only two things will fix this spiraling vortex of ineptitude he has created: 1) death/mental incapacity, 2) cancellation of tickets en masse. (The loss of his precious sell-out streak should have told him something, but obviously it didn't.)

Like hell I'm stuck with you, Mike Brown. I'm ready to give my interest and money to a team that actually knows what the hell they are doing, something 20 years of historic levels of losing prove that you do not. Take that and stick it wherever you like.

I think whoever goes to the last home game should wear every Bengals, shirt, jersey, hat, or whatever and throw it all on the field. Disrupt the game and toss hundreds and or thousands of pieces of bengals gear onto the field.

Play will stop while both end zones are cleared. The cameras will show hats and shirts raining down from the stands like a snow ball fight.

If someone wants my shirts I'll mail them because I'm not sending one more dime until a GM is hired, and this person has control of football operations.

The best case is I'm going to box up my remaining gear and mail it back to Bengals HQ with a strongly worded letter.

Stop watching, and spending is the only weapon that I have.

Holy crap, I just had a frightening thought. Picture this: January 2011, Mike Brown approaches the microphone at a podium in the PBS press room.

"Ladies and gentlemen, today I am pleased to announce that I am promoting Bob Bratkowski to the position of General Manager of the Cincinnati Bengals. He has my full trust to maintain and perhaps exceed the competitive level I have always made my goal as GM of the team."

Read the wording again: "...a general manager brought in from the outside is not in the plans." Bobbo is as inside as it gets. I may not sleep tonight.

What is so great about "last year" according to Mike Beelzebrown? The bengals won exactly four games out of their division and the "sweep" of their division we basically lucked into half of the victories in that. It took us FOUR weeks to clinch the division and after that, we didn't win another game. We got steamrolled by the Jets the last game of the season only to have them come back the next week and trounce us in Cincy in the first round of the playoffs. ANd then this year, we picked up EXACTLY where we left off. So what's so great about last year that the Prince of Darkness is pining for? Wow, we were barely a mediocre division champion. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee! Whatever.
Your most humble and loyal servant,
P.S. I long for the relief the end of this season will bring!

Next year will be TEBOW time in Cincinnati.

One signing by MFB will be considered by him his best move.

Why bother to spend time, money, effort to become structured as a real NFL football team when you can lather up the conservative base christians and get them into the stands waving crosses.

Tebow and Cincinnati love them some Jesus so win or loss it don't matter, praise the lord!!! Who cares if you can pass or catch a ball, just pass me some scriptures, praise the lord!!!

They didn't resign Reggie a few years back to be a great TE they signed him cause he is their spiritual leader in the locker room.

Part two: Haynesworth, we can rebuild him.....

Major Payne --

I read into that portion of the letter as well, though I'm fairly certain that IF there's a new G.M./Director of Football Operations that Mike plans on hiring from the INSIDE of the organization, it will be one of three people: Katie Blackburn, Troy Blackburn, or....yep, Marvin Lewis. Why these three?

Katie: She is recently spotlighted in an NFL commercial with other Bengals players and is the only other Front Office figure from a franchise in the commercial besides Robert Kraft. This is rare for a Bengals "higher-up" to be in the public spotlight. Also, there were rumors of her wanting to bring in a GM at some point and has seemed to have pull with her daddy.

Troy: I'm not sure why it'd be him. The only reasons I can think of is because he's a "HE" and HE is married to "SHE", AKA Katie, his daughter.

Marvin: This is the most interesting one, to me. Perhaps this is why his coaching contract negotiations stalled? Perhaps this is why he has "checked out" this year? Marvin seems to be one of the few men that the Browns/Blackburns trust in any capacity, especially in the draft and free agency. I wouldn't be wild about this move, but it'd be better than keeping Mike or going with Katie and/or Troy.

If, for some wild reason, Mike appoints Bobby Brat into a front office position, I'm done. No more. I'll go be a Falcons fan or something if that dipshit is in control.

After 40 years of living and dying with this team, I'm finally done. I haven't spent money on them in years and now I'm done investing my time and passion for them. MB has continued to sucker punch every fan in the nuts since he took over. This franchise is a lost cause and I'm too tired to care about them anymore.

bratworst will be the next HC. Melvin is not a good HC, he is more of a manager of people - that he has done well, considering what he has to work with. This team needs a quality COACH, won't happen, at least any time soon. With the revenue sharing, doesn't all money spent on NFL merchandise get divided up? If so, how can you support the purchase of ANY said NFL merch?

Worst case: Mike Brown remains GM. We have 20 years record of the sewer pipe that is his time as Owner/GM. It's like living at the gates of hell.

Worst case part 2: Bratkowski becomes GM. Granted, it's not MFB, but it may as well be. Each successive overhaul of the play book gets worse. The next overhaul will bring a pee-wee level play book, actually drawn in crayon. It's like living in the crack house just outside of the gates of hell.

Mediocre case: A Blackburn becomes GM. They know the BUSINESS of football, but do they know the GAME of football? Big difference. I think they would at least talk to people who understand the game, which is a significant improvement over MFB, who waits for them to come find him in his office (according to Big Willie anyway).

Better case: Marvin Lewis becomes GM. He understands the game. And it takes him out of the game management stuff that he clearly sucks at. If he is truly calling the shots, I could live with that. For now at least. It is odd and concerning that he would 'check out' if he is already in line for this move, though.

Best case: A coach with a winning record lifetime becomes GM. No one associated with Mike Brown qualifies, so they would have to come from outside. And MFB closed that door. At least until he is dead or finally declared legally incompetent.

Guys, instead of bitching just become a billionaire and buy the team from MFB. Problem solved. I'm sure he would love to part ways with them Bungles for around 900 mil. Problem solved.

The Brown family are elitist, snobbish Americans who will never admit fault.

This attitude comes from being born with a golden spoon in their mouths. If they had been born to an average American home, they would have a much different attitude about their pro football product!

The Bengals problems are deeper than just the owners but a good start would be for them to admit,"They are wrong" and change the MO. I know, won't happen because of what I said in the opening statement.

All you can do is some how embarrass the owners or hit them in the wallet. Even that may not work.

Bottom line:The Bengals are like the "leaning tower of pisa" Just leaning year after year but never falling, never changing either. After a while, you get use to it and pay no attention to it. Would you care if it fell?

Reading into his statements. No GM from the outside. Like there's a plan. Him saying it's not in the plans. Lol

There are no plans. He doesn't see anything wrong with this season. He went 2-14 in 08, won the division in 09.

He goes 2-14 in 10, he's fully expecting to win the division next year.

There's no plan, there's no panic. His way works! Sooner or later.

He won't change. We have to. Carson and Chad aren't exactly ticket sellers anymore are they?

He will never change.

We have to.

Guy-from-Delhi, quit being a boot-licker.
Please, for all our sake, for all that is decent
(or even douche-ey for that matter).

An open appeal from WikiDumps (a 'competing' format) founder, DutchHercules:

We need to put pressure on Amazon (and whomever else)to not accept any more donations for Mike Brown.

Also, if he tries to flee extradition to Sweden
(aka GoldenKinkyLand, aka IKEA, aka Chokladflarn)
we should have him apprehended by UK authorities.

first of all, 4-11-1 in '08, even though Mcnabb still dosent know how a tie works(must be an NHL fan) and secondly, why would he ever sell? revenue sharing brings in wayyyyyyyyyyy too much cash. it's the classic american theme "if it aint broke..." and the team for them is about the cash, hands down.

I cant believe I am saying this, but I am rooting for a lockout next year.

A question... ...what happens on the Sunday Night Home game coming up? Are the blackout rules different? Will Channel 12 buyout the remaining tickets to televise this travesty?

Will someone have the balls to wear a sign or shirt telling people who DO receive the games that the game isn't televised in Cincy because the team sucks so bad that not enough people wanted to come?

I am not thinking that they will or that NBC (or Channel 12) would show such an 'informational'.

Hey, here's a thing, find out where the cameras are outside of the stadium (you know, they usually take a picture of the Cincinnati Skyline from Northern Kentucky (I think it is usually done near the Aquarium?)) and don't disturb them but make sure that NBC knows the travesty that's going on here. If NBC doesn't report it, then it is yet another example that both the NFL and NBC are 'in the tank' with Mike 'Eggcellent' Brown.

Oh, and Bienemy can wear a sign extolling the virtues of having an indoor practice facility. Let me know, I might come down with a signboard showing Sports Plus as an alternative!

The Sunday games are a flex schedule so I would bet the Bengals will be dropped from prime time and NBC replaces them with either the Jets @ Chicago or the Giants @ Green Bay both of which have playoff implications.

The Cincinnati version of the not ready for prime time players is in full effect.

Only 9 more loses to having 100 more loses than wins.

Only 22 more loses to have double the amount than wins.

let's celebrate these MFB milestones as a badge of honor. We are stuck with him and he with us so, lets draw as much attention as possible to his wonderful football achievements.

Nice... we are creating a "12 Days of Christmas" Bengal song on a Cincinnati Enquirer Bengal thread. It starts like this... On the first day of Christmas the Bengals sent to me...

12 straight losses
11 losing seasons...
10 lousy lineman
9 iodotic draft picks
8... penalities
7 Criminal players
6 missed FG's
FIVE... Dumbazz coaches
4 balling fans
3 scouts we think
2 Diva receivers
And a CHEAP owner without a football clue

I have to doubt this letter. Although that's probably what Mike Brown would want to say to us, he wouldn't on paper. He's too smart for that. I dunno. I just highly doubt the credibility of this letter. Maybe it's someone that conjured this thing up to get a rise out of us. I'm thinking that's more than likely what it is.

Maybe the 2010 season is just something that was conjured up to get a rise out of us.

I saw this on Sports pickle and it reminded me of Mike Brown.

If this doesn't sum up his run with the Bengals, nothing does!

For those looking for some good news, the Bob Bratkowski wiki defacers got some quality national recognition today on

The Revolution just got some press

Way to steal my thunder, Ben. Jerk.

I hope lots of fans see this...

Spammer...go spam Mike Brown, with your weird exotic poem spam

a little perspective, bengals fans:

Mike Brown aint no Howard Milstein, but lets just thank god his only beat is running a football team.

I'm sure Mikey justifies his performance as a GM with stats like this:

We're middle-of-the-pack on three-and-outs this season! WHO DEY!!

Three-and-outs By Team

Just stop caring. WCH is correct.

carson palmer is TRASH ,time for him to go, time for ocho crappo to go, time for bobby bratkowski to go..NOWWWW!!!..and i hope noone goes to watch this shitty ass football team play, as long as u keep going to games ,this is the type of product u will get, what a bunch of garbage
