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?”

Mike Brown will only change his ways if fans demand it. I am proud to be a member of the Who Dey Revolution.

Someday, we will hire a director of pro personnel who has more experience than working in the GCL

Viva la Revolution

I too am proud to be a member of the Who Dey Revolution.

Who Dey Dammit.

It's a revolution, bitches.

Join the revolution...all the cool kids are doing it!

I have finally found a revolution I am down for. Oh how I long for the days of 1988!!! Viva Revolution!!!

Fans must find a way to get through to the Brown family!!!

mark my words...carson will be on a best damn show or somethin similar in 20 years at #1 as the 'most talented qb to have his career wasted' by being with this franchise...please carson leave this franchise and try to forget it ever happened...and ill leave with you

Mike Brown - you are a jerk and I don't like you.

Bengals - I likey, but suffer for it!
May the Revolution liberate me!

It's time to get the old guard out, and I don't mean replacing Brown with his daughter. No, we need a General Manger/Director of Football Operations who can successfully run a team, not a Mom & Pop five and dime.

The Beatles put it best in their song aptly named "Revolution":

You say you got a real solution
Well, you know
We'd all love to see the plan
You ask me for a contribution
Well, you know
We're doing what we can.

Do what we can, and revolt...

Long live the revolution!!!

It's not like I have a choice of which NFL team to root for. I was born in the 513 and I will die in the 513.

Viva La Revolution and Who Dey!

Mike Brown is cheap and it is reflected in the way he runs this team with poor management and poor trainers. Our only hope for a Super Bowl is to eliminate this and get someone in there who actually cares about winning vs. putting extra money in his already fat pockets.

Trade Chad for a late 1st. round pick and select two defensive players in the 1st. round and an offensive lineman in the second round. Pick a WR in the 3rd. round

Please Mike, Marvin and Katie do the right thing and unload Chad.

rick distasi

Lets do this

Thurman reinstated by NFL! Get your # 51's back out. He better be eating ceramic tile and rusted rebar for breakfast because he'll have a long season, if he ends up in the rotation, swallowing fullbacks instead of beers!

Odell is back and pissed! This is the first good news of the off season.

Let's ride this wave of momentum into the draft and make amazing trade deals for Chad, I mean let's get some ferocious defenders and trade bait Chad around the league like a whore until we get the best deal.

There was a time when I would have done anything for Chad, anything, but now he has lost my undying, unloseable loyalty.

Then we can just draft Run DMC and blow the top off the north!

Count me in. Let's televise this revolution in HD.

Even my 9 year old son is sick of losing. Let's get with it Bengals!

This site just started you need to check it out. www.sendyourjerseybacktochad.com

I'd be happy if Lord Brown would let Katie take over. At least it would be a step in the right direction.

Comrade Drewski wants to put Mike Brown and Marvin Lewis in a f***ing gulag.

lets trade Chad and Mike! Gary Yunger

Mullet guy in section 312, row 3 seat 11 approves, as well as finger guy (seat unkown)

Watching the Bengals roar to another 8-8 season will be like sticking dull pencils through my eyes.

This year I bought my first HD tv, but the idea was ruined for I can not watch the Bengals game in HD through my tears

gotta love Mikey for the Chad stand he has taken. You also have to love him for..............? Well at least we bought him a stadium and made him richer. Not that excited about the draft since we will take a running back, or maybe a guard in rounds 1 and 2, maybe a corner back in 3 along with a TE with the compensatory pick. Then we can concentrate on defense. Thanks, Gary Yunger

It's time for a revolution... Who Dey!

Let's storm PBS and take the stadium until Brown gives into our demands!

It is easiest to arrive at your destination by having a driver who knows how to get there. Mike Brown does not know the way. The NFL should revoke his franchise rights for his inability to win over the past 17 years. I can't believe the city of Cincinnati gave money to help this idiot build a palace of incompetency. Like in Cleveland, the only way this city gets a winning football team is if the Bengals leave. I for one will be more than happy to buy a bus ticket for Mike and his family to leave. Good bye!

Keep the revolution going!

...at least we have new coordinators. Now to go back and remove them from all of the photos...

Being a Bengals fan since 1987,Im down with this revolution,all the way from Scotland U.K

Pitchforks and torches, y'all, and meet at the Brown family compound. Reanimate the corpse of Paul Brown to explain to Mikey about apples that fall a good country mile from their trees- at least in terms of football acumen- or about the time the milkman visited Mommy. Put Peter Max images of Ocho's gold-toothed display on banners and tees- and call him "Che". Bring ownership to the community ala Green Bay and steal one of Parcells' personnel guys when he's not looking. Viva La Revolucion!

The revolution will not be televised. As witnessed with this years schedule.

like watching a train wreck, i cant stop

Assassinate Mike Brown!

Hey, Mikey! I heard Eddie DeBartolo is looking to get back into the football business. Do us a favor and cut him a deal. He knows how to get shit done.

IJR

Who Dey

Some good moves this off season, so it's this year or bust Marvin. I wish the same to all above him.

Time to storm the castle!!!! Hot oil be damned!!

I'm a long suffering Bengals fan, and I didn't realize until the last few years that all of our troubles are a result of the bad management that is the sole legacy of the Mike Brown era. He needs to turn over absolutely every single element of control to professionals who WANT to win and WILL DO WHAT IT TAKES to do so.

Viva la Revolution!!

Please Retire Mike!!

I love this site, I love you people, I have found my home. Bengals 5-11 in 2008.

Whoever it is that voted the Bengals would win 10 games or more this year is an absolute moron. Obviously, I'd be all for it. I'd also be all for banging the Olsen twins -- at the same time.

Does anyone have an idea when Mike Brown will be walking down a flight of stairs near Milwaukee, Wisconsin some time soon? If so, I volunteer to give him a push.

This is it. The time has come to realize that #9 cannot win it alone. There's a man named White, a man named Geathers a man named Rivers, a man name Hall...what do these men have in common? They will return the Bengals to a top 10 defense this season. You can see the will and the force of one dark side coordinator...the man called Zimmer. The return of the noise will happen. The ground attack will be first, followed by an onslaught of passes from #9. Yes there will be victory..and we all, once again will chant the names of our favorite player in the Queen City.....

i was gonna start someting like this....glad to know someone was way ahead and so many feel the same way I do. Who Dey!!

How do we get Mike Brown to sell?

Mike Brown is a cheap bastard who has no clue or desire to assemble a winning franchise. He is taking your money and laughing all the way to the bank. Since he became GM the team has won 35% of their games and made the playoffs ONCE in 17 YEARS! He is a fake and a fraud and would NEVER be in football if he had not been the demon seed of his late great father Paul. Im done with this franchise. I might still watch a couple of games for yuks but I wont plan my day around watching and rooting for the poor bastards like I used to. Mikey boy has stolen the passion I used to have for this team. They will suck forever. Hopefully he will have to sell the team when there is no cap in 2010. He can use that money to open a halfway house for all the idiots he drafted and made millionaires who showed their appreciation by getting arrested and making his franchise the laughing stock of all professional sports. Im done.

WhoDeyRevolution speaks the truth. The Brown family can't handle the truth.

I want the who dey revolution icon for my fantasy team..but can't cut/copy/paste.

I fly to Cincinnati 4 times a season to watch them break my heart. Year in and year out all the while this schmo Mike Brown fills his pockets with my money laughing outloud. Loyalty in the end will either drive you insane or make you insanely rich. I curse you mike brown, I curse that you have to endure the pain and dissapointment every year the way that thousands of hardworking fans do. I would love nothing more than to stick your egg shaped head into a vice and have somebody tatoo bengal stripes all over it you ghastly, wretched, cheap, scoundrel. Viva REVOLOUTION!!!!!!!

WHODEY

JMo

Oh, I long for the day when I can proudly root for the Bengals...

To borrow from the Wild Man: Carson Palmer forever, Mike Brown NEVER!!!

all your optimism are belong to mike

If it's Brown....Flush it down! And I am not talking about Cleveland...

I'd like to see us go the way of the packers and buy shares of the franchise out from under MB.

Who Dey Revolution Lives

i've just started a novel that deals with the mysterious death of a hated professional football team owner. you know what? turns out he was murdered!!! here's another thing - the team's town is a river town in the midwest. how spooky do you think this sounds??

Ogre

Adelante la revolucion!

Mike brown thinks scouts sell cookies. Step down and take your family with you your father is ashamed.
Who dey!

I am proud to be joining the revolution. This team is in permanent .500 mode. A new mgmt staff is needed. Mike Brown, please step down (or at least hire a GM)

Mike Brown has no soul.

Mike Brown must go.

Ugh. I can't take it.

gentlemen, we really need a revolution t-shirt.

Remember when we couldn't watch the bengals on the tube because we couldn't sell out....that time is near again.

I cannot express my joy at having discovered this site. I have to ask though: you guys don't stockpile weapons or anything like that do ya? 'Cuz if you go carryin' pictures of Chairman Mao/ You ain't gonna make it with anyone anyhow.
Who-Dey.

Randy Watson (and Sexual Chocolate, for that matter) is proud to be on the frontlines of the Who Dey Revolution.

We will not be stopped until blood runs down the steps (taxpayer owned, I might add) of PBS!!

Been saying this myself for years! Glad to have this forum!

Mikey Brown IS NOT Paul Brown! The Bengals NEED a football man running this team!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This revolution needs to be elevated to ALL local and national sports media. Mikey Brown and his family NEED to understand how the fans REALLY feel.

until this team stops acting like it's circus time at the big top the rinngling brothers and barnum and bailey act this team will never go anywhere period. they hoax the city into a new stadium and hook lined and sinkered the true fans of the bengals they flat stink man i wished i had a shirt to wear this sunday at the game to tell mike sucker boy brown how it is.

Not this year! I can't take the frustration of watching this three win season (one team will lay down, you will get lucky one game, and you will play like an NFL team for one game)the rest will be embarassing losses. It's so bad that I'm ashamed to were my Bengal shirts. Does Mike Brown feel this shame or does his money overide this feeling?

Lewis said they were not "consistent". He said they were 1 for 8 in third down coversions in the first half, and 1 for 8 in same in the second half. Excuse me! Is that not consistent? This is the most consistently bad football team that has ever existed, Pro or otherwise!

I heard Mr. Simon on WLW this evening, wow incredible!!!

I too am sick and tired of being sick and tired. Mike Brown is a farce of an owner and I have said for years the only way change will come about is when he dies which unfortunately staying alive is the only thing he appears to do well.

I hope this site ends the debate about the problems with this player or that coach... Jesus could come back to earth and be our quarterback and we still wont win a superbowl as long as Mike Brown owns this team.

Heres to hoping a 26 year old will see a winning football franchise. I was too young to remember the last super bowl trip.

amen

No more jerseys, no more t-shirts, no more attending games or drinking their $7 beers. Marvin clinched it for me yesterday with his typical comments and condescending attitude towards me, a former fan. Thanks, Marvin, for finally calling me out and giving me the okay to do what I gotta do... join the WhoDeyRevolution. Oh yeah... No doubt Pete is making a ton of money betting against the Bengals... who said he wasn't bright. Maybe he'd make a good Bengal GM.

Great site and hopefully there is strength in numbers!!!

What's the single constant since 1991? Mike Brown!

For the love of all that is holy please hire a general manager Mr Brown!

Viva Revolution!
Che

I have been a Bengals Fan since 1988 and this is the worst team in the history of NFL. The Brown family has ruined the city of Cincinnati for football fans at least NFL fans...........Go Buckeyes.

My entire 21 year existence has been spent in the grip of Mike Brown, I will stand for it no more, let the revolution begin.

Why do we think the return of Odell is such a great thing?! Wake up Bengals fans! I'm in Indy still true black and orange but I see the Colts drafting players with deep consideration of their fit in the organization AND CHARACTER! Yeah, they've had their problems too but they laugh at ours! Plus they cut players that act up, not give them 5 to 6 chances (see story on recent Colts player who did some dumb things at:

http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080911/SPORTS03/809110461/1058/SPORTS03 )

If the Bengals start making this a priority, along with the organizational changes proposed by the eloquent letter to Mike Brown, I think we'll see a dramatic turn around.

COME ON MIKE PLEASE FOLLOW THE LEAD OF A WINNING FRANCHISE AND HIRE SCOUTS AND A GM!!! YOUR FATHER, REST HIS SOUL, WAS A FOOTBALL GOD! YOU ARE NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MY FATHER WAS A GREAT MACHINIST, I HAVE COMMAN SINCE, THAT DOES NOT MAKE ME A GREAT OR GOOD MACHINIST, THAT MAKES ME THE SON OF A GREAT MACHINIST! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD AND THE LOVE OF YOUR FATHER DO THE RIGHT THING AND HIRE FOOTBALL PEOPLE TO RUN YOUR FOOTBALL TEAM, YOU WILL STILL PROFIT AND STILL OWN THE TEAM, QUIT BEING A STUBBORN ASS AND WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE AS A FAN THAT IS A FANATIC ABOUT THIS CITY AND THIS STATE ON ITS RICH TRADITION OF SPORTS. AND A TRUE FAN AND FOLLOWER OF PAUL, AKA FOOTBALL GOD,BROWN, DO YOUR FAMILY NAME SOME GOOD AND MAKE GOOD ON THE PROMISE TO YOUR DAD THAT THE BENGALS WILL BE A WINNING TEAM NOT THE ARMPIT OF PRO, COLLEGE, AND AMATURE SPORTS!!!!! THANK GOD FOR PAUL BROWN! SOMEONE PLEASE KICK HIS STUPID OFFSPRING IN THE NUTS!!!! WHAT A DUMB ASS!!!!!!!!!!!11

THANK YOU FOR ONE THING MIKE. YOU HAVE TAUGHT ME THAT SPOILING MY KIDS AND GIVING THEM HANDOUTS DOES NOT HELP THEM, IT TURNS THEM INTO PRICKS, AND DUMBASSES WITH NO TYPE OF COMMEN SINCE OR PRIDE!!!

As a Bengal fan near Cleveland I am sick and tired of Mike Brown pretending to run a football team. The only thing Mikie cares about is money. He cares nothing for fans that have supported him team for decades. The revolution will only succeed when Mike Brown steps down and allows people with football knowledge to run the team. Just because Paul Brown was a football God doesn't mean Mike is. PB had more football talent and knowledge in his pinky finger then Mike Brown ever dreamed of having.

Viva la revolution!!! It is time we stand up for our Who Dey dang it!!!!

WhoDeyRevolution cured my apathy.

I'm finally aboard the revolution. Current season ticket holder giving it this year and next. If nothing changes I am becoming a Bearcats football and basketball season ticket holder and will be contributing my hard earned cash to an org. who will put it back into their org for their own benefit and that of its fans!

Its finally happened. The good people of Cincinnati have finally realized the only way to obtain victory over an individual (Mike Brown) is by a triumph of the collective.

Individualism: Mike Brown (Ohso Cheapo)
Chad Johnson (Ocho Cinco)

Collectivism: Any winning NFL Franchise
The WhoDey revolution

WLW AIN'T GONNA LIKE THIS!!!!!!! ITS SOCIALISM!!!!!

i dont think katie would run the bengals any better...she might get tired of the preasure and hire a gm though

After watching Kerry Collins beat the Bengals like a red headed step child today, I am officially a joining the Revolution. If it's Brown, flush it down!!!

We must revolt. We must take power from the bourgeois Brown/Blackburn political machine. If we don't act, i fear we may one day be rooting for the Los Angeles Bengals.
