Q: why are the @Bengals (https://twitter.com/Bengals) really trying to get lifelong fans to start saying #letsRoar (https://twitter.com/hashtag/letsRoar?src=hash) instead of #whodey (https://twitter.com/hashtag/whodey?src=hash) ?! I can't with that. #wack (https://twitter.com/hashtag/wack?src=hash)

@BoSSaRella (https://twitter.com/BoSSaRella) (1/2) #LetsRoar (https://twitter.com/hashtag/LetsRoar?src=hash) is a movement to unite fans at the jungle to be LOUD! #WhoDey (https://twitter.com/hashtag/WhoDey?src=hash) will NEVER go away. In fact "Who Dey" is a big

@BoSSaRella (https://twitter.com/BoSSaRella) (2/2) part of what gives us our home-field advantage! We dont need a #LetsRoar (https://twitter.com/hashtag/LetsRoar?src=hash) cheer. We need the ROAR of the crowd! #WhoDey (https://twitter.com/hashtag/WhoDey?src=hash)

Will they let fans stand throughout the game? Because that would help. I know I made that observation/complaint at the other site and got yelled at, but I cannot tell you how weak the rooting atmosphere is in the upper decks (where I can afford to sit when I make the yearly sojourn).

The Bengals and their quiet fans thing is such a tough battle, with a lot of moving parts to it.

1. Cincinnati is socially conservative, family-oriented, town of relatively polite fans.
2. It is, for the most part, a baseball town. Baseball fans just don't go in for the psychotic noise making.
3. It is a town without even a big time college football fanbase to draw from. (I mean people who go to the games and get LOUD, not just college football fans. We've got lots of those)
4. Our traditions of watching winning football comes from The Buckeyes from afar. We know how to act on a sofa, or sports bar, and I think that's generally how Bengals ticket holders act at the stadium.
5. Maddeningly, it's rather rare that the defense rewards the fans with a big stop when they do muster some noise. If they do get the stop early, the fans cheer more. If they don't, you won't hear a damned thing from most fans the rest of the game.

... In the end, you have to convince the fans it's okay to cheer. You then have to get them to cheer on more than a fourth and one. THEN, you have to get them to cheer even if the cheering "didn't work" the first time.

It stinks, but you're trying to undo decades of football disappointment, and about a hundred years of baseball manners.

It would def help if the fans were not told by the team to sit down until third down when the team is on defense.

Whatever brings up the noise level is fine with me. Can't stand the weird looks people give me because I'm clapping and making noise on first and second down as well as third and fourth.
