wow, i was over at my own for and a thread was started about your thread here, here is the link if you care: go-bengals.com
so i came over to send some apologetic words, yet after reading this whole thread it the seems most here are more downtrotten about losing than actually having been there themselves, i guess NO ONE saw the vikings fans with the horn helmets on running around our stadium cursing and running with thier heads down as to stab bengals fans walking by, perhaps no one saw the group of three utterly intoxicated vikes fans who were too concerned with double fisting beers and screaming obcenities at a 14-16 yr old girl in a bengals jersey and a skirt to stop before they ran into, knocked over, and made a 3-5 yr old buy cry, not stopping to say sorry or see if he was ok but walking off faster as to not get security involved, talk about class shall we??
player taunting? never seen an nfl game i assume, as if our players havent endured taunting from every other team for years, but when we get cocky we are classless players? this coming from a group of fans who had randy moss on thier team. wow i say..you have to be kidding?
i have been to cleveland, pitt, baltimore, tennessee, indy, chicago, of course cincy, and the only nicer fans than i have seen in cincy if the titans fans, they were great, i have had my life threatened, half full cups of beer and pop, have eaten hamburgers or hot dogs all thrown at me, bottle caps, empty bottles, peanuts, i have had children on thier dads shoulder flip me off and say "the bengald f**king suck!"
i have walked through many of teh parking lots around the stadium and seen many fans from other teams get a good ribbing, mostly boo's, nothing ever serious, so if you experienced worse, then you either parked in the wrong place or are an exception.
while we are on the topic of classlessness, i love how cincinnati record over 3 years ago and a decade back makes you feel better about us romping your team, we havent had a losing season since 2002, before our new head coach and changes in the front office, since then there has been an overhaul of the organization and lots of success and great moments for the city and its fans, we beat the undefeated cheifs in 2003, we loved it, then we beat the ravens at thier house in a 24 point 4th qtr last year, also agreat accomplishment for the team, and so far we are undefeated, so go ahead and keep living in our past, we are enjoying what this team is doing now.
but dont preech about not being classy when people over here that didnt even attend the game cosign for others and brings up our past record and "player taunting" to put us down. Talk about classy!
