Mike Brown's M.O. is simple.
In a league of unprecedented parity
, Mike Brown runs a barebones NFL franchise, with the sole purpose of extracting as much money as possible out of the NFL and Hamilton County taxpayers.
It's pretty much that simple. And it's no coincidence that the Bengals last playoff win was 23 years ago, the very year Mike Brown took over.
And the best part is, because of the NFL's Collective Bargaining Agreement, whether the stadium is full or completely empty, Mike Brown ALWAYS gets 1/32 of the NFL Owner's cut, every year, every time.
From a Philosophical standpoint, Mike Brown is EXACTLY why Socialism doesn't work. Because there will always be someone who just wants to milk the system and that person will ruin it for everyone else.
But yeah... I'm sure Mike Brown is "doing all he can"...
It's just been that "darn bad luck" for the past 23 years.
The next time anyone here shells out 2 or 3 hundred for a game, and they are sitting through the opening game animation that hasn't changed in 15 years, or wondering why there is no halftime show, put your minds at ease. Because Mike Brown is "really doing all that he can."
P.S.: Go to a Reds game if you want to see what "doing all that you can" looks like. (Thanks Bob!)
Go to a Bengals game if you want to see what "doing the bare minimum required" looks like.
