Cincinnati Bengals

My views on the news conference that took place here in Cincinnati on Tuesday, January 4th, 2011 with the Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis and their owner Mike Brown.

“This isn't his team. It isn't your team.
It is The Family’s team
Yesterday’s news conference made
that plainer than ever.

“This isn't his team. It isn't your team. It is The  Family’s team.” 

That one sentence explains exactly what is wrong with the Bengals and why they keep losing football games.

The Bengals organization have great coaches and very talented players on the team. Mike Brown and his “Family” do indeed own the Bengals, but the Cincinnati Bengals should “belong” to the City of Cincinnati and it's FANS!! 
Every sports team has an “owner”. What good is that owner or that team without FANS?

NOTHING that's what!!

Art Rooney was the founding owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Rooney family still owns the Steelers today.   Ask ANYONE including the Rooney family “who do the Steelers belong too”?

Your answer will be “The City of Pittsburgh AND it’s fans… it’s our team.

The Rooney’s know it, the players know it, the coaches know it and the FANS know it. This makes for a winning football team. Even when the Steelers are losing…they are a winning team because their fans stay strong and loyal no matter what!

Once a Steeler fan….. Always a STEELER FAN!

Maybe if Mike Brown would give the Bengals BACK to the City of Cincinnati and the few loyal fans it has left, they’d find out what a winning team feels like!.

After all.. They are THE CINCINNATI BENGALS.. not the Brown Family Bengals…..

So I say to all the people of Cincinnati, let Mike Brown and his FAMILY know that the Cincinnati Bengals BELONG TO THE PEOPLE of CINCINNATI!!!!

I feel sorry for the football fans in Cincinnati.

I live here now.. but have always been and will always be.... A Pittsburgh Steeler FAN.........
