  1. It's called, Mike Brown is an asshole, so we will stick it to him any chance we get.
  2. Yeah, but they also want to know that the Owner/GM will work to fill deficiencies in talent through the draft AND free agency. They want to know they have appropriate facilities to run a NFL franchise. They want to know if the team does a good job scouting and preparing for the draft. Sure, Mike Brown will give you time, but he won't give you the tools to get the job done.
  3. Ain't gonna happen while Mikey Boy is alive.
  4. McDaniels says, nah...not even worth talking with Mike Brown. https: https://twitter.com/MikeGarafolo/status/1080832468389896193 // https://twitter.com/MikeGarafolo/status/1080832468389896193 t <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">If you’re wondering when Josh McDaniels’ interview with the <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Bengals?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Bengals</a> is happening, it apparently won’t.

  5. Not sure about Oakland, but no way did Hue get a raw deal in Cleveland. By all reports Hue had plenty of input on draft picks, so he doesn't get a pass there. The way the team turned around as soon as Hue left the building and the shade thrown by his ex-players says all you need to know. Hue was part of the problem with meltdowns in the locker room. Jackson may have a good football mind, but his leadership abilities are highly dubious. Cleveland obviously wasn't as bad as they were playing for Hue Jackson. He blew as a HC and only a fool would give him another chance.
  6. Not cool, but not bad enough to deny the man a job.
  7. Toronto is the Hockey fishbowl. Perfect for Babcock. I know, sort of, a coach that worked in Toronto. It changed him. He used to be friendly and open, but not after Toronto. Babcock does have a big advantage, huge job security. Ran off Lou. Heard his nickname around the league is "God." If the Bengals win, people will come. Fan wise, Cincinnati is a good town. Not too over the top.
  8. It doesn't matter that much about nightlife where you coach. While you are coaching you don't have time for that shit. It's an 80 plus hour week. You can afford to live where you want in the offseason.
  9. This. Lived a bunch of places. The only difference is how out in the open these turds are. Some places they still keep their heads down, even with Trump in charge.
  10. If Cincinnati fans a "meh" why has Lewis been trending all day? Plenty of other guys lost their jobs. Cincinnati fans are good, but not stupid. If you feed them shit for years they stop giving you their money unconditionally.
  11. I am simultaneously excited to see Lewis go, but frightened by the prospects of who Mike Brown may hire. Life as a Bengals fan. Little has changed in 28 years.

    Not here to argue. You certainly know more about the issue than I do. Your first sentence sums it up for me. It's a combination of years of traditions from people that have learned from each other and applied the customs that they feel are most important. The exception would be the modern version of Christmas/Santa Claus which has made consumerism front and center. That is certainly our society's "contribution" to the tradition.

    OK. Pagans say it comes from their traditions, Christians say it comes from theirs. I'm not really worried about it. My comment was that Wiccans (Pagans) doing Krampus was (from what I had read) taking from a Christian tradition. Possibly wrong, but just the same, folks all take from the traditions they like and make it theirs. No harm in that as far as I'm concerned. Unless you are into the strict "cultural appropriation" thought process.

    Huh. Pagans doing Christianity. Still fun I suppose.

    Thanks for the Krampus info. Nothing like some odd mythology to spice up Christmas Eve. Frau Perchta sounds even more frightening. Nothing scarier than a mean old German/Eastern European lady, as I grew up with German family in Cincinnati.
