Not quite what Burke had in mind, perhaps, but this grassroots effort to rein in Bengals GM Mike Brown is awesome (via Peter King). Here are the fan-funded billboards, and here is the site’s manifesto:
IN THIS TIME of perpetual Cincinnati Bengals incompetence and futility, with zero playoff wins in the seventeen seasons since the WhoDeyRevolution Godfather, Paul Brown, passed away in 1991 and handed the team to his fortunate son, the Despot, Mike Brown;
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 . . .
Rooting for the Dan Snyder-era Redskins may be the sports equivalent of purgatory, but the plight of hapless Bengals fans is assuredly worse. Vive la Révolution!
