    Re: How bad are the Bengals going to be next year?

    In my mind, I just can't picture any scenario where this team wins more than 3 games. This season will set the fan base back 5 years. Blackouts galore!

    Music to my ears. Blackouts mean more chances for us Browns fans to watch more games from the comfort of our own homes.

    They might sell out the Pittsburgh and Cleveland games. Tough to see any others selling out, and those are maybes.

    I want this to be wrong, but I'm pretty sure it's not, mostly because I think it explains what the Bengals are doing.
    This is correct, league wide the cash spent has to be 99% of the salary cap of 120 million and some change over '11 & '12 (I take this last part to mean between '11 and '12, because in '12 season this drops to 95% of the cap). And because it's a soft cap (meaning some teams can spend up to 126 million and change due to some options they have for bonuses and what not) some teams like the Bengals don't have to spend as much because most others will spend at or over it. In '13 it goes team to team at 89%. That is it in a nutshell.

    This is a tough pill for me to swallow right now.

    How does a guy from Hamilton end up a Browns fan?

    How many times has this happened in the draft? The two that I can remember are Eli and Elway 20 odd years ago. It doesn't happen often and I doubt Luck does that. As bad as the Bengals are Palmer won and had his chances to win here. IMO Palmer wasn't as successful as he wanted to be more because of him than what surrounded him.

    Re: How bad are the Bengals going to be next year?

    If that deal about the basement is true, that it need only be met by the teams collectively, we are officially screwed. I will give this team one more year and then I'm moving on. I am somewhat encouraged to read that Joseph himself said we made a very competitive offer but just chose Houston because it offered a better chance to win now, but if we do nothing this off season but rearrange the chairs on the titanic, (Lutui, Howard, etc), then I am moving on. I have Jacksonville and Tampa Bay within 2 hours of me. Life's too short to wait on this trainwreck to fix itself.

    Bengals will be Carolina bad this season! No running game, rookie QB, patch work offensive line, mediocre defense, all in all a big pile of suck!

    Last year I vowed not to root for the Bengals and to be a fan of good football. So glad Mike Brown reinforced my decision to stay away
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    Why would you support the Bengals in any way? The organization doesn't care for you or any fan one iota, except to get your money.

    This.

    My oldest asked for a Bengals jersey last year for Christmas. The had Owens, Ochocinco, Benson, and Palmer. I looked at it like they had a selfish donkey, a self promoting donkey, a guy with rage issues, and a washed up QB.

    I might concede the point and get him an AJ Green jersey this year. I love that guy.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    I've um heard that there are websites where you can get cheap jerseys that might be less than legit, but look pretty much identical.

    A friend of mine wouldn't have normally considered buying from a non-legit source like that normally, but it's an alternative to giving Brown money.

    Re: How bad are the Bengals going to be next year?

    Mike Brown doesn't care about the fans. Why should I care about the team? They don't deserve this city's support, plain and simple. Cincinnati has never had an NBA team in my lifetime, so I've always been an NBA nomad. And I think that's in the near future in regards to the NFL.
