Just read a story about the Cincinnati Bengals that has me inspired. Yes, you heard me correctly. A story about the Bengals has me inspired.
This has been reported by multiple outlets today that I have seen. Basically, Bengals fans have organized the WhoDeyRevolution and purchased billboards along with creating a website to protest their team's awfulness. Here is the site:
I am honestly tempted to contribute because I think this is an AWESOME idea -- but, of course, I like it that the Bengals suck so I hope that these fans ultimately fail in their efforts to bring competent leadership to Cincinnati.
The reason I am posting is because, I wonder, is it time for Browns fans to do something similar? Whoever started Cowher09.com is on the right track. When have fans ever held the ownership of their teams accountable for continued ineptitude and poor play? Players are held accountable all the time, as are fans who have to watch putrid play and continued failure.
Could this possibly the first in a new trend of fans taking it upon themselves to not just talk and bitch, but to actually do something???
Perhaps we can use the comment thread to throw some ideas out there for what we can do to try to compel Browns ownership and management to remove their heads from their you-know-wheres and bring a winning team to Cleveland, as the city deserves.
Bengals fans, it is not often I can congratulate you. But today, I have to tip my cap.
