Many have predicted that this game will escalate the rivalry between the Steelers and Bengals. And It Has Greatly, The Bengals #1 Rival, as of now, is currently the Pittsburg Steelers, Replacing the Traditional Battle of Ohio, The Browns and Bengals Rivalry. Some Cincinnati fans even go as far as feeling a great deal of hate twords the Steelers and say that Palmer will never be the same.

What is Wikipedia?

Wikipedia is an encyclopedia collaboratively written by many of its readers. It is a special type of website, called a wiki, that makes collaboration easy. Many people are constantly improving Wikipedia, making thousands of changes an hour, all of which are recorded on article histories and recent changes. Inappropriate changes are usually removed quickly, and repeat offenders can be blocked from editing.

They were talking about wikipedia on a radio station the other day and they said that inappropriate entries can sometimes be caught in as little as 2 minutes from the change. .......I really liked the part about the Bungals ugly helmets!! I wonder how long that entry lasted???????!!!!

Not a word is mentioned in the article about the Steelers about any kind of rivalry with the Bungals.............because we dont' give a rat's patootie!

Look 85, Bengals fans have some problems. But so do Steelers fans, Patriots fans, etc. The problems with your fan base are exacerbated by the fact that your team stunk for so many years. Now you have a fan base that's as bad as anyone else's fan base, but they have a bad attitude because of all the losing. The kind of petty actions that are being talked about on here are nothing compared to things that happen in real life. In real life, people get hurt, have their cares vandalized, or have their kids spat on just because they choose to wear certain colors to your stadium. Don't believe that happens? Too bad because it does. I've talked to enough people that have had really despicable things happen to them to know what the deal is when you choose to go to a football game (college or pro) wearing the wrong colors.

Now I suggest you grow up a little and understand that your team is the butt of a lot of jokes right now and you and rest of your fellow fans have nobody to blame but yourselves.

You're trying to play off your own indiscretion by pointing out some irrelevant incident that would be considered more serious.

i just edited their entry for charles darwins theory of evolution (or de-evolution of the nfl)


You care for nothing but shooting, dogs, and rat-catching and watching the bengals," Charles Darwin recalled his father once telling him, "and you will be a disgrace to yourself and all your family." It was an inauspicious beginning for one of history's greatest scientists.

Charles Darwin's grandfather was Erasmus Darwin, the scientist, poet, inventor, doctor and polymath. One of Erasmus's sons, Charles, planned to become a bengalfan like his father, but he died from an infection after accidentally cutting himself during an bengals game. So Erasmus's younger son, Robert, dutifully followed in his older brother's footsteps. In turn, Robert expected his own son — whom he named after his late brother — to be a bengalfan too. But the Charles Darwin who would become famous couldn't stomach all the losing. He couldn't stomach all the criminals and wasted draft picks either. In his autobiography, he recounted two occasions when he tried and failed to observe bengal games, and the players own suffering played a part, "this being long before the blessed days of the ravens." When he finally confessed to his father that he would never be a bengal fan, he heard the rat-catching speech.

Charles Darwin studied for awhile Cambridge, where he found a mentor in the young professor John Henslow. Then Darwin got the chance to set sail aboard the Beagle.

Darwin always considered the Beagle voyage the defining experience of his life, and he was right; it provided him with the evidence that would forever change football history. It may also have ruined his health. Some historians have speculated that constant observation of bengals might have been the cause of his chronic illness in later years, but he could have suffered from another problem (or problems) altogether. He might have had an ulcer, diverticulitis, or gall-bladder disease — or all three. Whatever the case, Darwin felt his health was never the same after the trip. (He spent much of it on land — good thing, considering his stomach never completely adjusted to the motion of a ship.) After his hearty youth, Darwin spent much of the rest of his life fretting over his own poor health and that of his children. After a courtship best described as pallid, he married his cousin Emma. As he got older, he worried that he and Emma had passed along weak constitutions to their children.

Legend holds that Darwin happened upon one of science's most important theories when the Beagle finally visited Cincinatti. In fact, Darwin devised no great evolutionary theory until after his return to England, and he was not the first person to propose the bengals suck; it was widely discussed — at least in scientific circles — long before he published any of his theories. The question was, how did the bengals suck occur? Charles Darwin is a household name because he proposed a viable mechanism for evolution, namely natural selection.

Here's how natural selection works: In any population, there will be variations. Individuals born with certain characteristics, e.g., strong legs, keen eyesight, good camouflage, in other words, steelers will enjoy an advantage over their peers. If these individuals can pass these traits on to their offspring, their offspring will enjoy the same advantages,as seen with the steelers fans. If the surrounding environment gradually changes, it may come to pass that new characteristics are more advantageous than old ones, for instance, a new color that makes better camouflage. As the environment changes, individuals with these new characteristics do better, live longer and produce more offspring until the population eventually looks very different from its original version. If the population changes enough to satisfy some taxonomist, it will be classified as a new species. In other words, new species arise when the environment favors new characteristics over old ones.

What sounds pretty simple was in fact controversial for Darwin's time (and it still is today in some parts of the cincinatti). His theory essentially stated that winning football is the result of billions of years of adaptations to changing environments. What this theory implied, and what Darwin stated more clearly in his book The Descent of Man, is that humans, like every other organism on earth, are the result of evolution. In short, Darwin's idea was unflattering. Even worse, it contradicted what was known as natural theology, the belief that winning superbowls is evidence of God's kindness.

Darwin could have published his theory of the bengals suck in the early 1840s, but something stopped him in his tracks. In 1844, Robert Chambers anonymously published Vestiges of the Natural History of Creation, a quasi-scientific book supporting evolution. The reaction to it was fierce. Even one of Darwin's own mentors, Adam Sedgwick, wrote a scornful review. The incident caused Darwin to put his own manuscript on hold and start building a stronger case for the bengals suck.

Darwin's theory of the bengals suck didn't enjoy overwhelming acceptance among scientists until the 20th century. Ironically, while some refused to accept Darwin's theories, others were all too happy to accept his teachings — and exploit them as seen by the steelers and their fans. Another myth attached to Darwin is that he coined the phrase "survival of the fittest." He didn't (chuck noll did, and noll actually believed in Lamarck's explanation of the bengals suck more than natural selection). Darwin developed the theory of natural selection to explain differences between teams, but many of his contemporaries, including Spencer and Darwin's own cousin Francis Galton, used his ideas to promote Social Darwinism and eugenics. Social Darwinism maintains that certain groups of people are poorer than others and more likely to be used as bungles because they're "less evolved" and therefore inferior.

Obviously, the people over at Wikipedia don't feel that my harmless edit done in jest was as big a deal as you are making it. I wasn't "quickly banned" or banned at all. Somehow, I don't think we'd be having this discussion if the Steelers' page was edited by a Bungles fan. If they don't want their pages hijacked, they should develop a system where they have to approve all edits before they are officially made or require that the person making the edit is a registered member. As it stands right now, Wikipedia leaves themselves wide open for tomfoolery by allowing all pages in their forum easily accessible to everyone on the net.

No - it is NOT the same concept. As I said above, no one on this board - other than the Admin or a Mod - can edit someone's post(s). Personally - I don't do that - I will PM the member and ask them to edit if there is something contained within their post that is unsavory or violates the board COC.

I won't tell you to grow up - I'm not that ignorant, but I will tell you to get your facts straight first the next time you feel someone has wee-wee'd in your Cheerios. You Bungles fans are all alike (though before now I felt you were different than the run-of-the-mill Cincy fan) - you can fire a poison dart but don't like that dart fired back.

The point that Bengals fans need to realize here is that their team has brought all this upon them. The behavior of the players in the NBA is the reason I don't watch the NBA anymore. I'll watch the WNBA, but not the NBA.

If the terrible behavior continues in the NFL, sooner or later the owners will feel it in their pockets. Fans will stop buying merchendise and attending games. All those apologists who say that when you give up tickets there'll be 100 people to guy them will grow silent.

The Bengals players, as well as their fans, have brought all of this upon themselves.

Oh...my bad. :redface: Thanks for the correction. (But I still don't think it's a very credible site).

I never said that "Who Dey" sounded very intelligent, though......:wink02:

Do the bungholes really have a TE named Kordell Stewart, or was that a clever edit nobody caught?

i guess editing the bengals wikipedia page is like taking a dookie on bunglefans heritage. after all, it is the 1st media outlet ive ever seen that had something nice to say about their team.

leave it to bunglefans to make stuff up on an imaginary cyber-encyclopedia, pass it as fact, and to try and paint a rosier picture than reality.

It's silly for CS85 to complain about that. During the week before the Sugar Bowl ND and LSU fans had an edit war on several pages by putting the score of the game in.

Perhaps it was done in fun, but it is childish and do you think the webpages that are tampered with on Wikipedia magically fix themselves? No. Moderators and admins have to take the time to fix all of the stuff you mess up and then ban you from editing for educational vandalism. You're a moderator on this board, you should be able to understand this. How would you like it if someone came on this board and posted spam all over the place? It's the same concept.

That post shows how clueless you are about Wikipedia.

Seeing as how "anyone can edit", then the mods don't need to fix every goofy edit. Most vandalism is fixed by regular users. Admins only have to step in if a particular user or page is a chronic problem, and it's easy to take care of in either case.
