  1. That's perfect. I think if everyone would put their recent news/tweets/videos in that thread it would be helpful. Once training camp starts things get crazy and a daily "News" thread could help.
  2. I like all the news, tweets and videos as well, but maybe we could separate those into their own threads instead of putting them in the middle of conversation threads? That would clean up some threads so folks wanting to dive in wouldn't be as intimidated? Maybe a daily "News" thread?
  3. If the guy is making $13M he's gonna play until he shows he can't.
  4. Krumrie and Curtis. I agree that they should get Krumrie in ASAP. If Issac Curtis had come into the game 10 years later....damn...
  5. Eh...it's his career. Players don't have many avenues to pressure owners to deal. I harbor no ill will toward Bates for playing hardball, but I also realize the Brown family has paid their own players generously in the past. This has to be about guaranteed money. Bates' agent got the Deshaun Watson deal, so I suppose we're gonna see a dance.
  6. The Bengals never budged in the past. The Bengals also said for years there was no need for an indoor practice facility. We will see how this plays out.
  7. Eh, not really. Brown was/is a guy who opposed changes throughout his entire career. Still trying to do things like his father did. The results were pretty poor economically and on the scoreboard. It's apparent he isn't calling the shots anymore, and I am very thankful.
  8. That's close to half the cap. Throw in Burrow and you're talking four players taking over half the cap. There has to be money left for defense and an OL. That could be disastrous.
  9. I figure it's all about revenue. They may only get 60% of what they would get for a single MNF game, but 2x 60% is better than 1x 100%.
  10. This. I bet a team shorter on talent will be willing to pay top dollar for Bates, but I don't think the Bengals can afford to do so. They have some big dollar guys to sign in a year or two. Then again, maybe Bates isn't asking for top dollar and this is just about guaranteed money. Either way, I hope they get him signed, but it isn't the end of the world if they don't.
  11. Ah...I always think of the Thanksgiving games as the Lions and the Cowboys.
  12. I can't ever remember the Bengals playing on Thanksgiving. Would love to see it.
  13. SEC schools have been doing that stuff for a couple years. Lots of fun. Glad the Bengals coming out of the stone age with fan experience at the stadium.
  14. TLDR. You stomping up and down saying these are bad draft picks is tired. We hear 'ya. The reality is no one, including you, really knows if these guys will be good pros. Right now they are Bengals and we hope for the best. If they end up sucking then come on back and toot your horn. I'm no draftnik, but Tobin has run hot and cold over the years at the draft. Also wonder how much Brown was involved 3, 5, or 10 years ago.
