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?”

Brosef,

I sent a pretty lengthy article to whodeyrevolution(at)gmail regarding Chad Ochocinco/Johnson and the projections that the Bengals will take AJ Green in the draft. Does anyone monitor that email account? I was hoping it would be used as a Guest Post here on WDR, but at least a nod that it was received would've been nice, even if it wasn't up-to-snuff for use on the site. If that email isn't being checked regularly, what would be a better account to send it to for consideration?

Thanks in advance.

This Huffington Post Article talks about the lockout but primarily mentions Mike Brown and his decision to ask the Cincy Taxpayers for more money for stadium upgrades... Looks like Mikey may be the root of the lockout in addition to the Bungles failures

Wyatt it has been my experience that unless trying to raise money or people to help w/ Project Mayhems, WDR seems to ignore emails. ie: unless we want something from you we don't respond.
Guess I'm not the only one this happens to.

Actually, Comrade Robert, Brosef did respond to me via email today. I don't want to speak for any of the WDR guys, but I think they are pretty busy with non-WDR stuff at the moment.

I don't know if anyone else caught this article, but the Bengals are not only team with management that doesn't seem to give a rip about winning because their fans fork over their money whether they win or not. The Cubs have been perfecting that formula for over a century now.

"The authors of "Scorecasting" believe that what has been stopping the Cubs the last three decades is the extreme loyalty of their fans, which has served to reduce the incentive for Cubs management to win."

Here is a link to the article: http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/baseball/cubs/ct-spt-0213-cubs-white-sox-scorecasti20110211,0,6720087.story

As a counterpoint to ChiBengal's article, on SI.com, Don Banks talks about how part of the new CBA will actually be an increase to the salary floor, which would BENEFIT the Bengals, because it would force Mikey Boy to spend closer to the salary cap instead of well below it.

Interesting article Wyatt, Thanks for bringing that to my attention

Stay out of this, Nick Lachey


I have read Nick-L-back (to/from Cincy/LA)'s comments, and they are well put for someone with such command of the Fahrenheit scale.

What I'm wondering is, is Nick really just some sort of ambasstadard for L.A., i.e. in the interests of moving the Bengals to L.A.?

Or do you think Nick prefers to fly here to Cincy and check in, in order to spend money on the Bengals' regular season losses?

I think Nick is genuinely interested in all things CIncy sports, and especially the Bengals and Bearcats. I don't see him as someone secretly pushing for Mike to bring his underhanded dealings to LA so he could be closer to them. I see him, again, as a very in touch and 'real' Cincy sports fan. How 'bout them Cats eh? Eh? Eh? HELL YEA, now, some consistency would be nice with regards to effort. Feel free to tell me to take it to another forum now.

Wyatt, I've had the same experiences with WDR's email, and even asked in the comments if they check it. That you got a reply makes me feel like at least they're now reminded it exists, and that there is an open invitation in the sidebar to send them messages.

@ Wyatt - I don't get to check into the Revolution very often, but its nice to see that at least one person is thinking about the future.

I don't know about you all, but I love this time of year almost as much as the season itself! Lets talk about the Draft!!! ...who cares if we have one or not. The NFL Draft is like Christmas; its a time to put aside worry and cynical attitudes and just enjoy the shear hope and magic... and then after we can go back to our dysfunctional bengal family infighting.

Member of the revolution? Maybe. Douche bag? Definitely. But he did bone Jessica Simpson.
http://whodeyrevolution.typepad.com/whodeyrevolution/2008/09/i-am-a-douche-1.html

Why do people think Nick is a douche bag? I know the guy and have had many beers with him, he is a cool guy. Jealousy maybe? The guy was a singer all through high school, he continued in a career in music and had some success.

WhoDey, I think perhaps Rich is referring to the "Are you a Bengals Douchebag?" link on the right side of the page. Nick has/had season tix and flies/flew across the country to watch the worst run sports franchise play multiple times in what I can only assume was multiple seasons. THAT, I believe is what is meant by "douchebag." Click the link, read the 2008 article by a poster named WhoDeysomethingorother, this will inform you further. I must say though that it IS hard to not categorically refer to all boy band members as Douches. Nick gets a pass though because he is a Cincy fan, and really acted pretty normal on that stupid show he was on with Simpson (Yes, I watched it with my now wife, bite me).

Thanks, Curse - that's why I referenced the link.
Plus, what I said about him boning Jessica Simpson, too.
