Longtime Reds fan, but a 49ers fan in football. I can't see for the life of my why ANY Reds fan would waste money on the Bengals that could go to the Reds, especially right now. I just read a quote by Castellini that said ticket sales are up, but it doesn't look like a gigantic boost that the franchise deserves. This stadium should be filling with the kind of promise this team has.
Anyone who is wasting a single cent on the "other" team in Cincy should be ashamed. People should be cancelling Bungals tickets and using the money to go to more Reds games. Why would anyone want to go to a Bengals game anyway? To see them get embarrassed by the Steelers, Ravens Browns, and whoever else with the newest free agent signee straight off his parole hearing? Meanwhile the Reds have awesome young players who are about as selfless as it gets.
I don't get it. Plus the owners are going to selfishly lockout the players this coming NFL season anyway, so may as well go ahead and spend your money on what could be a very, very special season.
