Default Bengals' 'Jerk' hot line gets mixed signals in debut

Most of the people who called the Cincinnati Bengals' new hot line for reporting unruly fans just wanted to see if it worked -- or hung up.



LOL....

After the rude and ill mannered way that the Bengal fans treated Jerome Bettis...maybe they should re-think the whole thing anyway!

True, it would have been funny to see Jerome call the hotline on live TV.

Not realy a surprise.

The hotline won't make it through the season.

I love how in the article he says:

Quote:
Bedinghaus said that's likely to cause complaints, "but we're not going to put 25 people down there to answer phone calls." If the line is busy, fans can ask a security guard or police officer for help
Well,isn't that what they are there for in the first place?
