Over the last three years we have all witnessed a huge shift in the way the Bengals go about their business. They have drafted better, they have spent money not only on free agents, but the right free agents and they have broken free of some old traditions that may have been holding the franchise back or maybe down. All this has culminated into a better product on the field, a great locker room, a sold out stadium and one ugly ass, giant red sign on that beautiful stadium.

 

If saying that signage is ugly is wrong, I don't want to be right.

FWIW... Went to the Pro Shop this morning, saw the completed thing.

In a word... hideous.

Should have taken a pic but didn't.  May go back tomorrow.

Ugly red orange color and detracts from the excellent architecture of the stadium.

Somehow looks cheap and tacky.

 

(no white helmets or mini helmets although they do have a new camouflage pattern Bengal hoodie that looks

good.  No sale.  Have too many others already.

naming stadiums always makes me think of cinergy field .. which cinergy paid a chunk of cash, then 3 months later petitioned to raise the public rates. .. when questioned why they needed a rate increase when they just spent 12  million for naming rights,  they said, we had that money earmarked for advertisement anyway . ....  funny I had to pay more so the only power company in the area can spent 12 million on advertising ....when a simple slogan of .." WANT ELECTRIC ... call us . "would of worked...

If they want to paint that stadium pink polka dots they should get to do whatever they want.

 

This is a Bengals town. Don't you forget that.

I particularly am interested in those “ticket scan pedestals”. 

 

I will wait and see how many people head for these, and then I will go to the gate as usual. 
 

 

 

They're at the gates as you go in.

Just there are a lot of them.

Not bad, really, although they have difficulty reading my paper hard copy tix.

However, I always get their early like when the gates open and kill time until 

I feel like going out to my seat.

As a P.S., I certainly hope it levels out with real football fans and not a bunch of people

all Bengaled up just to whoop it up at a preseason game just to say "I went to a Bengals game".

Still amazed at how many little kids were there including infants.

Pretty pricy for the whippersnappers who don't have a clue what is going on and

get bored and want to whine and run around.

Fortunately, Amish had the foreknowledge to propose “moving” up 6 rows in Sect 104 for this season. Glad to have agreed. 
 

Amazing what a few rows will accomplish: this will be smack-dab in not only the heart of really long-time season ticket holders, but also a good amount of players’ families. 


So, gone will be the days of the Stub-hub purchased “fans”…those who are going to a first game, arrive late, leave early, drink and gab incessantly; all the while pontificating that “Burrow needs to go deep” plus a thousand other broadcaster talking points. Plus, and even more importantly, not being around anymore “fans” of other teams—who have never actually been to the cities the teams are from, and their “lifelong fandom” being derived from watching them on TV. 
 

Bliss, I tell you, real fan bliss.

Agree.  I can't stand splinter assed bandwagon jumpers and drive by fans who show up once a year

and think acting like an asshole is showing team spirit.

Sounds like every NFL game I’ve been to in the last 20 years. Too many treat it like some huge party.  I stay home now.

Don’t you mean “South Lebanon” son?  I can still see Mary Lou Amburgy on the 42” riding mower at 6am on Sunday morning commercials as I was getting ready to deliver the Dayton Daily News as a kid.   
 

I actually met the Amburgys on a few occasions and they were great people. 

 

i went to lebanon high school, i lived closer to lakota, monroe, mason high schools, but thats the corner i lived on (literally each corner was a different district, when i was young my bus ride was 45-55 minutes). and i am 99% sure some ambergys played football with me at some level. but i have rightfully wiped those days from my working memory. that whole school district and town can get fucked.

So true. We finally have ownership working hard to keep up with bigger markets and deeper pockets. If they had done this a year earlier, maybe they would've been able to offer Bates the kind of guaranteed money he would be able to get on an extension almost anywhere else. I'm glad ownership realizes what a rare opportunity they have been given and are doing whatever they can to compete in an ever-changing NFL marketplace.

 

if teams didnt sacrifice a decade of cap for mediocre players we wouldnt be in this spot, but here we are.

the nuggets have these, at first they were horrible, but once the staff anf people got used to them they are great, now 1 staff can observe 2-3 of those and i just wireless scan my tickets both at once and it lets us both in. no barcode nonsense, no 70 year old who cant get it to scan or read the wireless thing, it was about 205 slower the first month or two, and is now 3x as fast, same thing at the bengals games, unless you are stuck being a pack of blue hairs looking through their checkbook for their ticket its much faster, last year if the side entrance wa packed you were in for a 30 minute wait.. now its 12-15 minutes.

the people next to use are cool, but being on the aisle i get a little of everyone from those two sections, and there are many times i would argue the bengals have the worst fanbase in sports, on multiple occasions fans were storming out, screaming the coaches suck, same old bengals, never going to win, then we tie it up and they come running back in, and celebrating with everyone.

and then win or lose everyone is an asshole leaving the game, after a sports win, everyone is merging nice, waiving to folks, traffic is chill. never ever in cincinnati, its comically rude.

 

cant wait to move back someday (im sure i will, its stupid expensive here)

in my experiences over the years, i took a similar approach, if i cant afford some good sideline seats, im not going, ive been to all the division stadiums 8+ times each, upper deck in baltimore security had to escort us out and stop everyone else in the section from leaving due to things thrown at use and death threats after we beat the ravens on last minute FG.

cleveland shit thrown at you, dog bones specifically, like yall snuck in real dog bones with the only possible use, to throw at people.

 

pittsburgh, see baltimore, minus the security escort, though when i sat with the families(thanks bob and jt) security was around the whole game it seemed.

 

then when i went and sat lower bowl, friendly fans, talked football, small talk, etc. except cleveand, cleveland some drunk bitch tried to fight my wife, another time some drunk dude just yelled "peakachu" at me wearing my peko jersey for 3 fucking hours., and lastly some drunk ho was plotting to kick my wifes cousin down the stairs just cause she was rooting for the bengals.

Never sat upper deck in B-more. I was warned about it. The most shit I ever got from their fans was a lower deck game that my bro and I celebrated when we scored anda their fans were pissded about it but nothing too bad.

 

I remember the year we drafted Pollack, I had bought his jersey and wore it to the game, some guy going into the stadium was with his elementary school age kids and walking up behind me and kept saying "Look a Pollak", he gets in front of me wearing a Rey Lewis jersey so I said out loud where his kids could hear it "Look a murder"

One of the many keys to enjoying a roadie, is either sporting highly demurred colors, or none at all. I have had my share of foreign stadium abuse, and in my younger days of being more pugilistic, is better for one's overall safety. Any more, when I do travel, it is basically incognito unless in a large group.  

 

I do recall once in Detroit (1986) when I did sport a jersey. The Bengals won on a last minute catch by Collinsworth/1-yard dive by Kinnebrew. Never saying a word, my ex-wife and I were accosted by a half-dozen Lion "fans" at the end of the aisle exit. One behemoth (he was really BIG) got in my face screaming every epithet but what day it was. I was thinking "do I go low, or go for the throat?". My ex--all 110 pounds of her--jumps in between and points straight into his face "You're not a very good sport!". Dude didn't know what to say, and his buddies were laughing so hard and saying "guess she told you!", the whole incident evaporated.
