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?”

Bengals=depressing, demoralizing, and dysfunctional. Can you name any other "entertainment" organizations that can be described as such? How is that petition/class action law suit coming that argues the Bengals aren't entertainment or competitive.

"groundskeeping"? WTF - what kind of groundskeeping does field turf need?!?!?!

Well Mike Brown just put the last nail in the coffin for me guys have fun with this loser team I will be selecting a new team this year in the draft A la Free agentcy. I will not select the Bengals that is forsure. I will also be rooting for whoever plays the bengals. This includes the steelers, browns, and the ravens. The teams I mentioned will also be able to pick me up in the draft (only teams excluded are the Bengals and the Lions)I have not figured out how I will be doing this yet but it will be done. Maybe all the teams in a hat and pull until only my new team is there don't know yet. All i do know is my hate for mike brown is now greater than my love for this team. So thank you mike Brown for ruining my football experince.

The increased sale's tax was supposed to pay for the new stadiums.

Since the Bengals are not filling the stadium each week, Hamilton County should reduce anything due to the Bengals by the lost sale's tax revenue that is caused by fewer people buying tickets, concessions, hotels, meals and bar tabs.

I wonder how much that might be?

Does anyone have an reasonable estimate how many empty seats and luxury boxes were empty this past year?

Go Bungles,

Harder and harder to stave off apathy, this from a freaking crack head like Bengals addict, real sad.

The most telling thing from that article is a quote:

"The Bengals are not a team that goes for the high end for much of anything," said Stuart Dornette, an attorney for the Bengals.

This pretty much explains the Bengals' approach to EVERYTHING. They don't want a high end medical staff, scouting dept., etc. All they want is enough to get by. That quote should be on a t-shirt with MFB's face!

What do you expect from a cold hearted blood sucking lawyer.

This article has no logical basis. What is a good "corporate citizen"? What is the "public good"? Does WDR advocate socialism?

A contract is a contract. This is an agreement that was entered into arms length by the city of Cincinnati. Now they have to honor it. Mike Brown has shortcomings no doubt, but expecting him to give away money is un-American.

This is a mistake on the part of the elected officials of the city of Cincinnati. Refusing to hold the City's feet to the fire for the deal they signed off on will only embolden the future leaders to to do the same thing. This problem runs much deeper than football, and some illogical charity from Mike Brown will not fix it. City politicians will continue to ask for just a little bit more money, and then all of our problems will be solved, they say. Do you believe them?

For once, this is not Mike Brown's fault. Don't let the wrong people of the hook just because of how you feel about MB.
