I have posted there since December '04 and will be glad to send anyone a PM with the site.
CarsonCity knows what you're talking about.
But yeah, I used to post a bunch on Bengals.com boards, but once it got to be popular it became virtually unreadable (think reds.com). I then went to bengalszone.com, and enjoyed it for a little while, but as soon as this past losing season hit, bam, out with any sort of analytical approach to how the players performed, and in with "FIRE MARVIN! MIKE BROWN STEP DOWN!" etc etc. Like mem said, there are a few very good posters on there that provide ORG-level discussion, but it's become unreadable for the most part as well, IMO.
I'm with WilyMo. I've found the non-baseball chatter right here on Redszone to provide the most intelligent group discussion on the Bengals. For very good work from a blogger, try cincyjungle.com. Josh Kirkendall does an excellent job and you're free to leave comments on his topics. Unfortunately hardly anybody ever does. (Sorry for the plugs, just trying to help out.)
