  1. Unfortunately I will not be in Cincinnati during the season this year, but I did not discover that until after purchasing my season tickets as well as season parking. The seats are on the NFL ticket exchange, but that does not help me sell parking.

    I have one slot for each home game (ten parking passes) for Parking Lot D

    Parking Lot D is just East of the stadium, with some covered parking under the Stadium Plaza, under Elm St and under West Freedom Way.

    Great lot for tailgating. I timed it one day in 2017 and I was able to walk from my car to the security at the East entrance gate in ≈ 2 minutes, 10 seconds, without having to cross any streets. If you are sitting on the East side of the stadium, you can return to the lot even faster as you can exit at the parking lot level without having to return to the plaza level.

    This lot is sold out to season ticket holders and has a waiting list, so you rarely see them available for an entire season.

     I am willing to sell the full set of ten at $415 face value if anyone is interested.

    Here is an aerial view with Parking Lot D outlined in blue (some of the parking area is under the above streets). 

    There are entrances from both West Pete Rose Way and Mehring Way.


  2. Jets Sign WR Coles for Third Tour of Duty

    Laveranues Coles - Bengals 2009

    43 receptions (3rd behind Chad & Andre Caldwell)

    514 yds (second behind Chad) - avg 12.0 per catch, longest 40 yds

    5 TDs

    signed with Jets for one year at $855,000.

    "It's an insurance policy for them," Coles told Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.

    "Those first four games are very important for the team to get where they want to go.

    It's an opportunity for me to come in and see what I can still do,

    but there's a slim chance I'll be there after four games.

    There's a good chance I'll get released; it depends on how things go.

    They were honest and open about it. It is what it is."

  3. Thats us all booked and sorted. biggrin.gif

    Into Cincy for the weekend of the Ravens game, down to Charlotte on the monday, visit my nephew in Louisburg, drive the blue ridge parkway, end up in Charlotte the weekend of the game @ the panthers. thumbsup3.gif.

    Then home and straight back to work ohmy.gif

    Look forward to meeting up with some of you guys and chugging a beer or two cheers.gif

    If you have a week to get to Charlotte for the next game and plan to drive interesting roads in the mountains,

    another short but spectacular route like the Blue Ridge Parkway that is not too far off the Cin - Charlotte route

    is the Tail of the Dragon.

    It runs through Smoky Mountain National Park south of Knoxville into North Carolina.

    Very popular for motorcycles, sports cars too.

    F1's Michel Schumacher shipped his motorcycle to the US

    so he could ride that route after one of the September US Indy F1 races early in the decade.

  4. Marvin has said it is not about money.

    excerpted from: Marvin Lewis hints at "things" holding up contract extension

    Posted by Michael David Smith on February 26, 2010 2:05 PM ET

    Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis went on at some length when asked at the NFL scouting combine about the status of talks to extend his contract. But he offered little more than vague hints about certain "things" that need to get done before he'll re-sign with the team.

    Lewis, who was named Associated Press coach of the year in 2009, has just one year left on his contract. He suggested when meeting with reporters that the issues he wants resolved before he'll sign a new deal have more to do with the structure of the team than how much money he'll make.

    "There's a lot of things that go into that. In the direction of things that we're doing and how we're doing things that are important to me," Lewis said, per Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer. "There were things when I started in this job in 2003 that were important and we can't change those. They have to stay on track and I have to make sure we're continuing to progress that way. Those are the things that are more important to me as anything.

    "I'm talking about structure, decision and how we do things and how I have the ability to do things that give us an opportunity to win football games."

    Lewis wouldn't name any of those "things" in particular, but the "things" presumably involve making sure Lewis will have the autonomy to make the decisions he wants on matters related to personnel and his coaching staff. Whatever the "things" are, Lewis says he's not stressing the final year of his contract.


    Gee, and we all know how easy it is to change Mike Brown's mind on how to run the team. I fear they will allow ML to move on.

  5. Great when a rookie steps up and a wayward pro bowler returns to form.

    Seems to me the o-line is opening up freeways.

    Running is a team effort. Great team to be playing running back.

    'bout the only message from staff to to Ced is very simple,

    we got depth, you don't practice, you don't play.

    Ced has first crack on wednesday and thursday.

    they game plan on what is prepared in practice,

    we saw how well that works when the quality of the depth allows that luxury.

    The press are creating any perceived discord where there is none, they pry quotes out of Ced.

  6. Finally we begin to prepare the $30 million dollar man for the playoff run. who Dey!


    Rookie right tackle Andre Smith made his NFL debut on the game’s second snap when the Bengals went with right tackle Dennis Roland at tight end.



    Offensive coordinator Bob Bratkowski unveiled what was probably his biggest use of the unbalanced line this season and it was a good way to get No. 1 pick Andre Smith into his first NFL game. He was on the field for about 10 snaps at right tackle and for all but one he was either next to Whitworth or right tackle Dennis Roland lined up as tight ends. It looked like Scott ducked behind Smith on an 11-yard run in the Bengals touchdown drive.


    Certainly it was the first time anyone had seen 6-9, 350-pound right tackle Dennis Roland go in motion and first-round pick Andre Smith line up at right tackle. After $30 million, a month-long-holdout, and a broken foot, Smith made his NFL debut on about 10 snaps and helped the Bengals move the Browns in the unconventional fronts. ...

    Bengals run to perfection

  7. Yea i agree i can open the main page, but as soon as i try to open any articles it dosnt respond. What the heck do you need to open this thing. Anybody else having this problem at all.

    Yes, that is what i posted above ...

    Well, I can get to the opening page. Ho, hum.

    Attempts to open any article or attempts to send Mr Hobson a message crashes Mac Safari.

  8. I just saw they got a new look over there. I haven't messed around with it to much, but I like the looks so far...

    Well, I can get to the opening page. Ho, hum.

    Attempts to open any article or attempts to send Mr Hobson a message crashes Mac Safari.

    Heck, I still think the original text focused site that loaded rapidly was better than anything since.

    The first redesign slowed that down considerably, but I could still read it.

    I don't go to bengals.com because of its graphic design.

    I don't go to bengals.com to watch lame low res video.

    I go to bengals.com to read solid informed writing.

    Guess that has ended.


  9. Did anywone else get the recorded message from Palmer yesterday? Basically said that he is pissed and disapointed by last year and that they are making him do this recording, but please buy tickets....

    Yes, I did.

    It arrived to me as a voice mail, so if anyone would like to hear it, I posted a .wav file of it here ...

    Carson's recorded message

    Carson is a stand-up guy - I hope he gets an opportunity to realize his potential.

    It would appear the automated call campaign is a blanket coverage of season ticket holders.

    My season ticket payments are current.

    We have held season tickets with the Bengals continuously since their start in '68.

    They have no reason to suspect I am going to bail.

    On the other hand, my buddy with 16 company seats only since 2000 (less seats starting in the 90s)

    is past due on payments and contemplating bailing.

    He actually has been hoping for a call from their season ticket people.

    Either the automated system has not got to him or he has a bad phone number on file ...

  10. You must not have seen the other thread on this....

    well then neither have I. I see threads about his trade, but nothing about Tatum "I ain't no thief" Bell ripping off Rudy's luggage on secutity cams in the Detroit Lions locker room.

    Did Tatum just destroy his NFL career? One thing getting in trouble outside of work, but stealing on team property from team employees / players. Talk about character issues.

  11. For sale $50.00 plus shipping - one (1) Parking Pass for Parking Lot C.

    Pittsburgh Steelers game, Sunday October 19, 2008 1:00 pm

    Tailgating :beer: and :eat: grilling permitted. :cheers: :player:

    Lot C is pre-sold to season ticket holders purchasing season parking - no public sale. I have to skip the Steeler game due to business conflict.

    Lot C is East Side of stadium.


    The map above is a little misleading, Lot C is entered from West Pete Rose Way.

    Lot C extends both East and West of Race

    all the way to and slightly under the stadium plaza.

    None of the streets nearby are at the same level, W Pete Rose Way is under Plaza Level.

    West Pete Rose Way is a no outlet dead end street East of Central Ave.

    All routes to Lot C must pass (red star below)

    intersection of West Pete Rose Way and Central Ave NW side of PBS stadium.


  12. Whats up Bengal fans? Huge Titans fan here looking to hit the road up to Cincy on 09/14 and was wandering whats the best way to get tickets or if they're even on sale yet?? Looking forward to the trip as I've been to Cincy many times for Reds/Braves games and Kings Island. So, hoping this trip will be no different. Thanks for any help!

    No actual tickets are sent out to season ticket holders until July. Rec'd mine last year on July 31; July 12 in 2006; July 25 in 2005 ... All tickets are sold out to season ticket holders.

    So you probably won't find tickets for sale online until the Bengals start sending them out. For now, all anyone can deliver is a promise. During the season, when work or other schedule conflicts prevent me from attending a game, I sell mine on Stub Hub. (StubHub Is the Official Secondary Ticketing Provider of the Cincinnati Bengals).

  13. ...The Steelers should be ashamed of that field, and the NFL should force them to change their surface to field turf or build a roof. Just like NE's field and Chicago's field should be forced to change.

    I don't know about Chicago, but Gillette Stadium switched during last season to the same Field Turf used in PBS.

    I really dislike the Gillette Stadium logo sewn into the new field

  14. Aha - they mailed them today!
