The honest truth is, I saw them on Channel 5 years ago...

...then about 2 years ago when I started getting in to the NFL they seemed to be who I should follow, as I remembered them.

HOWEVER, as a fan now, I could write a whole manifesto of reasons why you should start supporting team Who Dey

Best uniform in professional sport, and they were one of the first 2 teams I ever saw (could have been a 49ers fan on the same logic)

Met an American at Uni and yes they were from Cincy. Told me about the Reds & the Bengals. Decided to follow them. Bengals make the Superbowl in 89 and Reds win the World Series in '90. Thought I had dropped on ........nothing since.
Character building team(s) to follow.
Good time to get on board- both could do good things (at last!) soon.But don't hold your breath.

Played NFL Extreme on the PS1, Bengals helmets stood out so decided to play as them. When I started following the NFL properly in 05 it was a natural choice to continue with the Bengals

8 years on and havn't looked back since.

Followed them since Palmer got drafted cos it seemed logical to root for the 'worst team who just got a franchise QB' but I also liked a couple of other teams. Then I remember 2005 and watching the play-off game where Palmer took a cheap-shot from that sub-human rodent Kimo. Loved the Bengals, hated the Steelers ever since.
