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?”

I dont know; my Odell Thurman jersey could really be worth something one day...

I don't even know why I still have that.

I'm worried that Mikey will repackage the merchandise as "slightly used" and then resell it at the "pro" shop for half price.

You mean the semi-pro shop.

I was in the Mason Dick's Sporting Goods store this past weekend and noticed that there was a huge wall (maybe 50' wide by 20' high) packed full from floor to ceiling with Bengals merchandise. It was marked 50% off. There was a much smaller section devoted to the UC Bearcats. It wasn't discounted.

Randy

Are you sure that there were 57,000 people there yesterday? The place looked and sounded like a ghost town on the telecast...

I think I might send a "care package" to "management" with a letter and a box of merch that I still have of failed Bengals draft picks. I've got some great Akili and Peter Warrick stuff. Might throw in some Pickens and Dillon stuff telling them what a joke the "Carl Pickens Clause" actually is and how pathetic it is that an organization would rather put clauses in players contracts that recoup money from any public bashing. ANY other rational human being would probably just say "damn, our OWN PLAYERS are ripping us for how we run things--we have to change EVERYTHING we do!". But, no, not the Bengals and the Brown family.

And Stalin is correct about the Bengals and their state. Though it looks as if they have some nice players (Dunlap, Shipley, Gresham), they need a complete enema within the front office and they need to bring in a hard-nosed, experienced coach to right the ship.

My Chad Johnson jersey is going home!
Me likey.

I want to agree with you on the good young players thing but if you rewind 5-6 years you could have said the same thing about Henry-Steinbach-Geathers, who are now known as dead, gone, and a roster spot.

I'm not falling for the banana in the tail pipe again.

Can you help lazy people like myself out and provide an address to ship my letter/merchandise to?

LOVE IT! Thank you! Will retun Chad Johnson Jersey promptly. My Willie Jersey however will remain mine. Say what you will, but Willie was the fucking man (and should be a future HOF) and that's one piece of merchandise I aint parting with. (BTW, bought in 04, under false but very promising pretenses). Thanks again, I feel much better already.

I love the idea of shoving it back into Mikey Boy's face but I am terribly conflicted by returning merchandise in good condition to Mikey so that he can resell for a profit or donate it to a charity on his own where he can take the tax deduction. I would suggest irreparably defacing the property before sending it back.

That is paid attendance and it was actually a little over 56K. The stadium was half empty for sure. They report these numbers to try and exaggerate and promote their popularity, when in reality they are not telling the truth. Another slick way to try and deceive your customer. I am sure many tickets are owned by ticket brokers and they are the ones taking the loss. MFB still gets that ticket money, but what he does not get is the extra revenue from the person that walks through that gate and where MFB does not have to share with anyone. If you return your items, make sure you tear it up first so he cannot use it or give it to someone like Comrade Ken stated. About time WDR!

I mailed mine to:

Attn: Bengals Management
1 Paul Brown Stadium
Cincinnati, OH 45202-3418

Google "Cincinnati Bengals mailing address" to be sure.


Wow, was glad to read this recent blog entry (though I have to admit, I was looking forward to the WDR blog/recap of the vs. Browns game, titled 'Well Whoop-De-Do
(although I can't help but be happy for the team for finally winning one)'

How has no one mentioned how mikey decided to turn off the heat in the cub section to save money??


I keep trying to tell Mike Brown, 'You know, if you like it then you shouldaputa ring on it'

but it seems that all he hears is 'If I like it then I *shouldn't* put a ring on it'...

dang double entendres...how's anybody supposed to get their point across nowadays?

I blame the hipsters


What I'm trying to say is that Mike Brown needs to quit whoring out the fanbase...I mean, dang


Someone once posted in a public forum, "You guys shouldn't post when you're drunk"

It made me laugh...that's so weak...scolding people thru the intertwines...like the old school punkers and footballers say in England, "Smash the buggers!"
(or is that 'match the butters'? Hmmm....)

I suggest rubbing the Bengals merchandise in dog crap before mailing. I think it sends the perfect holiday message.

No. Please *don't* deface or ruin the merchandise before returning it. That would be petty and spiteful and sounds like something you would do in high school. Mikey also might use that to show how juvenile and mistaken our cause is. You can't give him any ammunition.

By all means, send it back. I love that idea. I would address them to Mike Brown an not Bengals Management. Think about the front office receiving hundreds of packages all addressed to Mike Brown.

MAKE SURE THAT THE MERCHANDISE IS TOTALLY OR PARTIALLY DESTROYED!!!

Mike Brown will most definitely try to sell/re-market used products for a second profit. If you cut a sleeve from a jersey, the bill off of a cap, or the finger off of a foam hand...these cannot be re-sold. Please be informed.

Can we publicize this? I fear that MIke will minimize and hide this if at all possible. Can we publicize a drop site to PDoc who can cover it and track numbers so MIkey can't deny anything about what's occurring? Aree you guys already on that? Are you going to publicize the results to local media? What is the plan to make this task public knowledge?

I say send it to roger gooddell stating that mike is now costing the leauge money and we will no longer take it.

Or send it to Jerry Jones with a letter stating mike is costing him more money with the rev share because he is now turing away paying customers with the garbage he is putting out.

I wholeheartedly approve of this idea, though will retain my only jersey. I'm sorry, but a Carl Pickens jersey would better serve The Cause in my possession, and not Mike Brown's. I'm sure you understand the logic.
