Says we should support the Bengals even though theyre 0-6, come down support the team, says Pittsburgh fans are there for their team we must support our team.

Please, seriously, honestly Mark, until you learn how to throw a baseball then I'll do what you say, you throw like a girl.

The look on ED's face cracks me up every time.

Does he really think fans of an 0-6 team should be as excited about an upcoming game as their 4-1 opponents? Yeah. Sure. I'll get right on that.

All this sounds like an awful homecoming pep rally from high school. "Sure, we might be 0-6, and they might be 4-1, but we're going to show our Bengal spirit on Sunday!!"

What, precisely, do you expect him to say? Bengals Sundays are a boon to the city's economy in a lot of different ways. Should he tell people to stay home?

Seriously, of all the stupid things out there in Bengaldom, this is what you pick to complain about?

Of all the stupid things in Cincinnati, why did Mark Mallory decide to make an announcement to show up at a Bengals game instead of, say, a fundraiser for inner-city youth?

Is there a fundraiser for inner city youth occurring at the same time as the Bengals game?

Furthermore, why does anyone give a crap what Mallory says about a Bengals game?

Sometimes I think Cincinnatians just live to ***** and complain.

If there was I know I would be more entertained going to that than sitting at home and watching the Bengals get destroyed. ;)

I don't believe he made an announcement. I think it was a question posed to him at his regular weekly media session. I really don't understand why everyone is getting so worked up about this. Who cares? The city has made tremendous strides under Mayor Mallory and to hear so many clueless morons I've heard on the radio the past couple days personally attacking the mayor because of this comment is really sad..

I completely agree. This level of ignorant nitpicking does no one any good.

the Mayor needs to worry about more important issues like why we can only afford to buy half the salt needed to keep our streets cleaned during the winter instead of telling fans to support a greedy football owner.

Hmmm, economic decline at the moment, jobs lost and with them city tax revenues. It's not unique to Cincinnati; states, counties and cities are all facing the same situation. BTW, it's possible Cincinnati may have made a similar announcement, but as I recall, it was Hamilton County which said they were going to buy half as much salt as last season. Likewise, I don't recall whether the county works off the calendar year or a fiscal year, but if it's the calendar year, I would say that a good chunk of their budget for salt was used up in the blizzard earlier in the year. If it's a fiscal year, then that would be a moot point. But again, I'm certain tax revenues are down (purchases are down, no sales tax; housing has collapsed and with it property taxes, etc.).

All in all, it makes much sense for the mayor to encourage folks to come down to town for a game - it helps pay for the salt.

I am not a politician. I am not an employee of the Bengals. I do not work for the Mayor. However....

Wouldn't the city and/or county make more money (to buy salt) if people bought tickets, concessions and merchandise during Bengals home games? If so, isn't Mayor Mallory doing the right thing? I am not sure if the city/county makes more money if the Bengals sellout compared to say 30,000 people at a game. Or does Mike Brown get every penny spent by the fans while at the Bengals games (incl. parking, hotels, etc, etc)? Can someone who knows more than me please let me know? Thanks.

I'm pretty certain the mayor isn't sitting in his office all day analyzing ways to improve the Bengals and get fans to come to the games and forwarding them on to Mike Brown. It was a simple, irrelevant, supportive comment. Cincinnati has a long history of comical politicians but Mayor Mallory is not one of them..

Wouldn't 20,000 Pittsburgh fans filling up the hotels and restaurants over the weekend be an economic boon to the city? It would be like a convention of fans from a football winner coming to town.

Maybe the Rooney's could do a seminar in the Brown's owners suite while the game is going on.

I think this situation gives a perfect example of where the Bengals are on the radar. Fans have given up complaining about the team so they move on to this. And the mayor must plead with people to support the team in order to keep generating money for the city.

Sad on both counts.
