Since I bought my WHO DEY t-shirt last year the Bengals have lost to....Arizona, Buffalo, Kansas City, Seattle, Cleveland, Tampa Bay, Atlanta, San Diego, Baltimore, Indianapolis, Denver, Pittsburgh x3, New England x2 for a record of 9-16.
So, wearing this t-shirt is pretty silly at this point. Everyone/Anyone can beat the Bengals. This shirt/slogan really only makes sense when you win more than you lose.
I feel like I may have brought it on myself because i never really like "WhoDey" as a chant. Its dumb and low rent. Not to mention delusional. In my defense when I bought the shirt the Bengals were coming off their playoff year and had started the season 3-0. To say I was excited barely describes my mood so cut me some slack.
So, what to do with this shirt? I can't wear it in public. The line of people forming to declare "We Dey" would make getting around impossible. I thought about sending it back to the team with a letter that said.
As a fan i've done my part. i cheer. i spend money. I go to games. I even bought this shirt to show my pride.
Because you play so poorly and with so little heart i can't wear this shirt anymore. I'm still a fan, but this shirt makes me look like a chump. Please feel free to re-sell this item.
Then i was was listening to Benglas Line on WLW and a player mentioned fans sometimes send in their shirts to show disgust with the team. The player saw this as a sign as a fair-weathered fan. I disagree. But i'm not going to be that guy.
So. the shirt.
I'm open to suggestions.
