  1. I still have not received my e letter about taking a redshirt year with my season tickets this year. I sent an e to the ticket office yesterday asking what was up. I am going to consider taking them up on it because I cannot imagine how they are going to manage getting into the stadium with the six foot space between people in line in addition to the already awkward security checks. I can see late arrivers and tailgaters not getting to their seats before the second quarter at least, Forget about trying to manage the rolling mass of humanity after the games leaving the stadium. Whatever, would like some information from the Bengals on that sort of thing like what will the stadium max capacity be with the new guidelines. Also of note for season ticket holders, just saw where the NFL has cancelled two preseason games with the possibility of cancelling the entire preseason schedule. That has to mean a check from the Bengals coming back to season ticket holders who have already been robbed paying for them in the first place.
  2. After further review... I am leaning heavily on opting out. Not so much being in the stadium and sitting in our seats but I can't imagine the unbelievable pain in the ass getting in with social distancing. The security checks and the crush at the entrances are bad enough although I go in right when the gates open to avoid it. They should have games but no fans in the stands. Or cancel completely because you know a boat load of players, etc will come down with it. Would give serious thought to taking a refund for the season tickets or letting it roll over into next year.
  3. I have not received that yet. I would probably do it if this was not Joe Burrow's first year. Don't want to miss that and give up the bragging rights to say "I was there his rookie year".
  4. Mike Brown needs to tell this bozo to get off his synthetic lawn.
  5. Wow. Better get your tickets to the Joey Chirwood Auto Thrill Show early.
  6. The Cincinnati Bengals will have to cover the first six to eight rows of seats at Paul Brown Stadium for home games in 2020 to aid in social distancing. Thursday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported NFL owners passed the motion. The move will aid in social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic but also help all NFL teams recoup some of the financial losses of not being able to fully pack the stands with sold tickets. Revenue losses could potentially have a big impact on future salary caps. This isn’t exactly what fans or teams want to hear, and especially not in Cincinnati given Joe Burrow’s first season. But it’s a smart response for the times and current global conditions and one other sports leagues that have resumed — such as the EPL — have already put into effect. No word yet on how the Bengals specifically will handle this when it comes to fans who already have tickets in those now restricted areas. But plenty of time between now and kickoff remains — and by then, the NFL, state and federal guidelines could change again as the global situation continues to develop. For now, at least, we have a better idea of what games at PBS might look like in 2020.
  7. And he wears white bucks to ride a motorcycle. Now THAT'S perverted.
  8. I found a cool picture of Jerry Lee Lewis, a motorcycle and his 13 year old cousin wife.
  9. 115 The NFL recently announced it would observe Juneteenth as a league holiday. By Jason Marcum@marcum89 Jun 17, 2020, 1:10pm EDT The Bengals have become the latest NFL franchise to establish June 19th — also known as Junteenth — as a paid holiday, according to Tyler Dragon of the Cincinnati Enquirer. Juneteenth marks the anniversary of June 19th, 1865, when Union soldiers landed in Galveston, Texas and proclaimed that slavery in the United States had ended, and that the Civil War was over. This news comes after NFL commissioner Roger Goodell recently announced that the NFL will observe Juneteenth as a league holiday, and league offices will be closed on Friday. “This year, as we work together as a family and in our communities to combat the racial injustices that remain deeply rooted into the fabric of our society, the NFL will observe Juneteenth on Friday, June 19th as a recognized holiday and our league offices will be closed,” Goodell said. “It is a day to reflect on our past, but more importantly, consider how each one of us can continue to show up and band together to work toward a better future.”
  10. So little traffic on the board right now anyway. Off Season + Social Distancing? Anyway, I have several gift cards to Brio/Bravo. These places became victims of COVID-19 closings and are not going to reopen. Anyone know if I can cash them in someplace? Also have some old Orange Leaf Yogurt which melted in the sun and closed.
  11. Not sure if this belongs here but ... https://www.foxnews.com/sports/colin-kaepernick-chargers-work-out-list-anthony-lynn https://www.yahoo.com/sports/anthony-lynn-says-colin-kaepernick-is-on-chargers-workout-list-173531179.html Can you imagine seeing Athens Joe vs Colin Kaepernick on Opening Day at 4:00 when it could be seen everywhere as a late game? Athens Joe's first NFL game and the return of Fluffy? The implications are off the scale.
  12. You've not been to many Bengals games. ... someone had to say it ...
  13. “Kenny Riley represents what the Hall of Fame is all about, in my opinion … I think Kenny’s stats merit that. I definitely do. Look at how many games, how many years that he played. The productivity he exhibited. The leadership that he exhibited. Not many play cornerback for 10 years and you have to average five a year to even get to 50 and it’s hard enough to average two a year. Kenny to a certain extent and me definitely, when I played teams ran the ball 60 to 65 percent of the time. Pound, pound, pound, play-action. Kenny overlapped that era a little bit. Now they run the ball 35 percent of the time and pass, pass, pass.” ~ Dick LeBeau
  14. Bring back the flea flicker to the tight end and the behind the back draw play to the fullback. Bring back cheap beer. Asking for a friend.
  15. Indiana casinos opening the 15th, Ohio the 19th with restrictions. Limited (50% or 75% maybe) occupancy. I think the social distancing will be lightly enforced but should be some great fights when someone gets within ten feet of a rolling crone in a Li'l Rascal electric scooter.
  16. I don't like it because it makes my bad breath blow back in my face.
  17. Good article. I especially like the part about Drew Sample being a break out star. I think he was overlooked, overwhelmed and kind of lost in the wash last year. A blocking tight end to help protect Athens Joe and loosen up the line for the other Joe sounds good to me.
  18. It was great watching them scatter when a long ball was thrown in their direction.
  19. Never forget his technique of taking a guy's legs out from behind and flipping him on his face. Great player, great guy and his omission from the Hall of Fame is a disgrace. R.I.P. Rattler
