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?”

Your numbered list is exactly how I feel.

Carson Palmer walking away from 50million dollars has woken up many fans. (On top of a lousy 4-12 season last year)

As much as I like Palmer and feel he got screwed, I wish he'd have been more of a leader and more vocal about management sooner. (maybe his contract had something against speaking out, who knows) Remember how he came back from a torn ACL in 8 months and then broke the franchise record for passing yards in '06? Yeah, not many people do, because every other week another Bengal was arrested and the team blew 3 games missing the playoffs.

Him retiring has irked fans. That has never happened in the NFL. A franchise QB literally saying, "I don't want to play for this franchise anymore. I don't care about money".

I hope no games sellout. Sadly, I don't think Mike Brown will ever change, but at least he can hopefully start losing money. Hopefully...

Carson Palmer is a fucking pussy unless and until he speaks out against ownership/management of the team; otherwise, his boycotting is selfish and will be forgotten. I hope he finds the stones, someday, to speak out for the people (the fans) who made his excessive salary and ensuing lifestyle possible.

By the way, when/what is the next project mayhem? There is no marching on until action is taken. Perhaps WDR nation needs to write to Palmer and ask him why he is doing this, i.e, plead with him to go public about this qualms with the Family.

..And still, you won't make a dent in MBB's pocketbook. He may say something to that effect and that may stiffen your spines a bit, but he knows as does anyone else who used clear and cogent thinking, he makes a profit without an ass in the seat. With that, you aren't going to see him leave for a long time and waiting in the wings is a business clone (his daughter) of him -- or worse! For your money, you'd better hope it is "WORSE". You want to see something like an 'Uncle Carl' situation where the kids with no apparent business sense took over. You know what's happened to the Lindner companies!

Only that could make the team leave sooner. Otherwise, expect more of the same regardless of what you do or want to have happen. IOW, you aren't making a hills' difference. Congrats!

If I was Carson Palmer I wouldn't say anything to spite the old greedy bastard. Yet. There's a still change that old greedy bastard will let him out of bondage so that Carson can have another chance at NFL life.

As much as I would *love* Carson to speak out, it's really not the smart move.

Hopefully old greedy bastard will trade him to the 49ers and then he can start telling the world what a greedy old asshat Mike Brown is.

EverybodyDey/GetRidofMikeBrown: Palmer can't speak out against the Browns because he remains under contract with them, and that's part of every Bengals player's contract (Google "The Carl Pickens Clause"). Even if Palmer retires, the Bengals will retain his rights if he ever unretired (unless they cut him like the Jets did the nearly-retired Favre prior to his signing with Minnesota), so I don't imagine he'd be able to speak out even then.

So fun article is! I agree the idea!

ost. In theory I would like http://oakleysunglasses.webstarts.com to write like this too. You need time to creat that interesting
