Lets face it, nothing will change until Mike Brown is no longer in charge of the bengals. He refuses to have football people running the football side of the business (player development, scouting dept, drafting of players, general mgr and director of football operations). The only way the paying public can force a change is to boycott games. You have to hit management in the wallet for this franchise to do anything.

Can the county sue the NFL and Bengals for the cost of the stadium if the Bengals goto LA?

What will mystify me forever and a day is this: Mike Brown is football people. He grew up at the side of the most brilliant football mind in history, yet the lot of us could manage a team better than he could. What the hell happened? Did he absorb anything his father said or did?

I guess Exhibit B in this line of reasoning (or non-reasoning) would be Dave Shula.

That's not really true. The public essentially did boycott the games last year with thousands of empty seats and countless canceled season tickets. What did that bring about? A two-year extension for the worst coach in football.

Until Mike Brown releases his grip on this franchise and hires a competent football GM who is then free to hire his own coach, nothing will change. This team has plenty of talent and should, by all rights, be 6-1 or 5-2 right now. It's the uninspired leadership of Marvin Lewis that has resulted in what we have instead.

How old is Mike Brown anyway and does he have any health concerns? (Yea, I'm hoping)

The Bengals aren't going to LA (they're locked in here until 2027 at the earliest I think) and if they did we'd never get another team. I'd rather have Mike Brown's disaster than no team at all.

I believe Mike Brown is in his 70's.

His dad lived to 82, though had long since passed off control of the team to Mike by 1991 when he died. Hopefully Mike passes the torch to Katie sooner rather than later. Katie will surely have to hire a GM.

I was excited last night when it was 14 to 3. I should have known better.

I dunno ... Katie thinks quite highly of herself. Not to mention that she might hire her husband.
