A Question Of Leadership

    You make a lot of good points here. I think we all know that leadership starts at the top…meaning Mike Brown. And as you stated he’s not going anywhere soon. So really we have no choice but to try and blame others inside the organization for lack of leadership. Bottom line is, nothing will change until we as fans demand it. As long we continue to buy tickets to games, purchase team merchandise, visit the team website and show any type of support for this team nothing will change….why should it? I know it’s hard not to support your favorite team. I’ve tried to do it for several years now. But every year I find myself drinking the Bengal’s kool-aid with a smile on my face. Saying to myself and other football fans, “oh yeah were better this year”, and every year I grow even more frustrated. Now, I don’t live in Cincinnati anymore so not going to games is easy. So I have stopped purchasing any Bengals merchandise and stopped purchasing the NFL ticket to watch Bengals games. Also I sent a letter to Mike Brown and the Bengals stating why I was no longer going to financially support the Bengals. I did receive a response, and if you guys would ever like to see or read it let me know. It’s quite funny. So if the Bengals have no leaders, and we as fans are the followers. Maybe its time the fans become the leaders and let the Bengals know we are not going to stand for an inferior product any longer. And the only power we as fans have is our hard earned dollar.

      I would love to see it, you can send it to if you want. I will probably make a post around it.
