Read this on Daugherty's mailbag and figured it was worth re-posting:

This guy wrote Doc and he makes a great point: so many of the crappy parts of Mikey's reign are redundant and easy to flog, that you miss out reflecting on the little things (not that I necessarily think it's bad to have a stadium in PB's name, but still).....
Im sure the usual is pouring in after your headline article.
Get a General manager, Mike Brown stinks, etc. etc.
Its the other things that everyone tolerates that really hack me off.
Why do we permit that man to have training camp in Ky. ?
I know it s small gesture, but symbolic. Every time someone fills up their tank, stops at Dairy Queen, or a reporter stays overnight, the taxes go to Ky.
Im sure a small OHIO college could use that facility fee they pay. We should demand it be in Ohio preferably HAMILTON COUNTY
Why is the stadium named Paul Brown?
For god-sakes how narcissistic is this?
How about we build a statue as big as Paul Bunyan for our beloved founder.
We can enter and exit the stadium between his legs. Homage enough.
Then we make a couple of million, on say,P & G Field ?
How about updating the most awesome opening video ever that has been showing pre-kickoff SINCE THE DAY THE STADIUM OPENED !
How about for $70, $80, $150 club ticket price ( more than the price of the best touring show to come to town) we get a halftime show.
I would try to distract my customers if my team sucked. NO we get the same thing, the same week, each year.A flyover. Punt, Pass, Kick my favorite, Pee Wee football.
Mike spares no expense.
What are the fans telling you? They like to tailgate. Ever do anything proactive to enhance this experience?- no-gestapo threats mostly.
Send some ex players,- cheerleaders, our beloved mascot around? Never
How about a FAN fest ? Bengalfest? Nope.
Hall of Fame.
There is plenty of empty room there by the way.
Even an Honor Ring of Fire dinner? Nope.
Season ticket holder?
