In the first week of camp Krumrie began kicking top pick Dave Rimington's ass.  They ended up in a scrap and Krumrie told him, "get used to it for the next 10 years!"  Rimington didn't last that long.

Unfair fight and Rimington did not get in a punch because his arms were too short.

It's about time for the team to announce the ballot for the ROH Class of 2023.  Literally, any day now.

 

 

Krumrie, Brooks, Boomer and Chad should be in soon..

Before Boomer, Willie, and Chad. 

You know Boomer played with Fulcher and Krumrie, right?

Yes, but Fulcher last played for the Bengals in 1992, Krumrie in 1994, and Boomer in 1997 (returned).

 

* Plus Boomer has stayed in the public eye and can get in later much easier, whereas the others may be forgotten as time goes on.

I'm going to say something very unpopular.  David Fulcher does not belong in the Bengals Ring of Honor.  He was a good player for a few years.  I know he has hung around the team and is a loyal Bengal, but the Ring of Honor is for the great players.  Fulcher wasn't that good for that long.  Hell, I would take Tommy Casanova over Fulcher at safety.  He was a short timer too.  Left in his prime to be a ophthalmologist. 

 

Krumrie was a much longer term influence on the Bengals.  Deserves the honor. 

 

BTW...Willie is already in.

I admit that I likely have a nostalgic spot for Fulcher as he was my favorite player as a kid.

 

Nobody made the Bengals helmet and uniform look cooler to me when I was a child ...
