Hey guys! This is Seth Tanner, the Bengals Director of Content. What do you guys want to see on gamedays at PBS in 2021?

Image
thesuicidesquad

I’d like to see next gen stats posted on the scoreboard. So when Chase catches his first bomb for a TD we can see how fast he was running on the scoreboard. We miss things like this at the stadium. Also, punt hang time. Considering PFF is next door, maybe something can be arranged.


Image
BengalsSocial

So top speed is the stat you're most interested in?

More leaping tiger logo, less B logo. Literally anywhere in the stadium

Agree x1000. The B logo is boring

Image
sprky316

Honestly the best thing to do is look to your neighbor the Reds, they have a top notch fan experience. The outside of the park is bight with signs of past and current great players.


Image
bleedblackNorange

I've always said orange instead of green seats but the "Who" and "Dey" on them is just genius my friend!!!!


Image
StankCheeze

100% agree on the scoreboards. The Reds were the first team in MLB to have all HDR scoreboards. They're gorgeous.


Image
swingmachine513

Also, SELL MORE AD SPACE WITH INCREASED DIGITAL SIGNAGE!! It can/should pay for itself. Way too true about PBS - the whole concourse needs another facelift.


Image
threeoldbeigecamaros

I'm always a sucker for monkeys riding on dogs

LizzosDietitian

I second this!


Image

And herding sheep!


Image

Better stadium experience and maybe I'd go. The stadium is a Russian Brutalist's dream of just concrete. It should be a JUNGLE!!! Put up some fake plants and greenery!


Image
cheeeesewiz

I'd like to jump on this train. The whole place feels dull as soon as you get to the concourse


Image
LizzosDietitian

Yeah, PBS is an eye sore. Go all out with the jungle experience, I’m talking over the top, and going to a bengals game would be quite the experience


Image
Neonsands

The stadium is extremely well designed. From a layout and architecture perspective, it hits on all fronts.


Image
3DogsInATrenchcoat

I've been in parking garages that were more appealing


Image
TheBengalsfan

Anything to hype the players up and feed into the enthusiasm that they have going with teamwork and communication. Does the team get input on what music is played? Anything to help get them pumped up. And obviously we would like to see a bunch of W’s this season!


Image
BengalsSocial

Love the feedback. We constantly communicate with the players about content ideas in the stadium, including what music they want to hear. Our DJ (DJ etrayn) typically gets song suggestions for pregame warmups from the players each game.


Image
ek1992osu

Less about stadium experience, but I'd like the social media team and maybe some players and staff to have more interactions with fans if possible. It really would hype us up if we could get players to do an AMA on Reddit.


Image
BengalsSocial

Your wish has been granted. Here I am.


Image
StankCheeze

Give Ocho the password to Bengals Official Twitter during the games.


Image
DavidDoesChess

Or just give Ocho the account for a day.


Image
StankCheeze

MORE COLOR! Not just the gameday banners. Looking at/in the stadium driving across the bridge is so depressing and does NOT get folks excited for gameday or the season. Look at what FCC did. They turned on the lights on the exterior and made the interior gorgeous. I hate watching soccer and hate what they did to the residents of the West End but it even got me to smile.


Image
BengalsSocial

Beautifying the stadium is a priority for us this season. While I can't get into the specifics of some of the things we are looking at, because a lot of it is not finalized, expect PBS to feel a lot different in 2021 and we will continue to build on that in 2022.


Image
whodeyjim1

Yes! Make it feel like you are proud to be a bengal fan!


Image
Nezn27

Great call out. Sometimes feels like a field in the middle of a parking garage.


Image
TheWrightBros

Create an immersive “jungle” experience. Turn the concrete walls into living plant walls, pipe jungle and animal sounds through the concourse, partner with Cincy zoo to have live feeds of animals on screens, have a mist system (on hot days), give it a vibe like you’re a Tiger strutting through the jungle or even a step further create a fictional “lost civilization” vibe like you’re an Indiana Jones treasure hunter walking through the Amazon.


Image
heisindc

They could do so much with this. Theme games, food and drink specials, kid zone with jungle gym stuff.


Image
Zaddyboiloon

I say make the aesthetic of the stadium more jungley. It seems to be just a concrete grey slab of a stadium


Image
LizzosDietitian

The biggest cosmetic improvement would be somewhat simple. Make PBS a freaking all out absolute over the top JUNGLE. I want to think I’m trekking through the Amazon when I get up to take a piss


Image
TrickSanchez

This could be sick if done right


Image
mbarr10101

Welcome to the Jungle > Katy Perry’s Roar... please for the love of God.

So cringe that they play Katy Perry... Welcome to the Jungle is the ultimate hype up song and it fits perfectly.

Anything with OchoCinco


Image
BengalsSocial

Definitely. I shot more than just uniform stuff when he came by back in April. We have a good chunk of content coming from him. How else do you think he got that labcoat he was walking around Cincinnati with?


Image
merrickend

How about some touchdown celebrations on the scoreboard. Give the players a 30 second spot to celebrate. Ocho style.


Image
HookLineAndThinker

I’m Australian so a lot of the pre-game experience for me is lost, but a #WhoDeyFromFarAway with pics of fans showing their support from other countries. I’d love to see my kids up there in their stripes. Could add to Bengals website too as it might not be televised. I’m always surprised at how many people on reddit like to know how widespread the fan base is.


Image
siphonica

Another Aussie Bengals fan!! I too have a bunch of kids in stripes and would love to be interacting from far away somehow!

Can you talk to someone about the leaping tiger logo at mid-field?


Image
AlshonsGloves

What are some of yalls current plans?


Image
BengalsSocial

Gotta keep some secrets for me, but you can expect some new pregame traditions. I mean, I didn't get that concrete throne built just for the uniform launch.

I really love what some MLB teams do with alternate camera angles that you ~only~ see on socials.

We do this! Keep an eye on our social channels. We're always trying to feed back our best angles from the field.

StankCheeze

I agree with all the folks saying make it a cheesy jungle experience. Make it feel like a damn theme park. Why do people go to theme parks? Fun. Why do people go to football games? Fun. The cheesier the better. Just like 3 ways and coneys.

More fantasy football/ other game highlights. I get the opinion that you should focus on the game you are at, but as someone who enjoys betting on games/fantasy I choose to not go to games sometimes since I have a better experience in the other avenues from my couch. Don’t think I’m an outlier, or that this trend will die out. Im sure others will feel this way even more once sports gambling becomes legal in Ohio soon.


Image
StankCheeze

I'm with you on that one, maybe not actual highlights from other games, as that could get a bit busy, but numbers would be nice. The Ohio sports betting bill is getting mucked up in the legislature so I'm not optimistic we'll have it this season, but maybe something to put on the to do list for 2022.


Image
JohnCents

I’ve been to over a hundred games. I used to go back of section 342 and watch the halftime highlights on a terrible 32 inch TV above the merch stand. PBS should add a sports bar amount of TVs in 4 sections of the stadium. If somebody wants to spend $80 to go to a stadium to watch another game let them. Keeping track of your fantasy team, big play highlights, and watching other games makes me feel more connected to NFL Sundays as a whole.


Image
HopsDrinker

I’ve always thought that the seats being green doesn’t look good on tv. It’s very obvious where people aren’t. The seats should be orange or black. The green just exaggerates an empty stadium and looks sad


Image
TrickSanchez

I agree but I doubt they're going to shell out the money to replace them.


Image
Anderk888888

The Vikings had a Youtube series called 96 questions where a player would interview other players about random things - something like this would be cool.

form_an_opinion

I've always thought that nature doc footage of a successful Bengal Tiger stalking and killing its prey with a nice custom voiceover by David Attenborough would be a great thing to have around pre game or when the team is closing out a blowout win. Play it during a late commercial break when Burrow and the boys are about to run some of that victory formation after another successful hunt.


Image
colormyselfblackened

Cincinnati area musicians getting to play a set before each game and/or at half time. That would significantly show an interest by the organization in the local community. That would do a lot to highlight the scene we have in Cincinnati and could be a huge break for some really talented local artists to he exposed to potential fans they otherwise would never be able to reach.


Image
DavidDoesChess

Having local marching bands or pep bands come to play outside the stadium before the game would be a cool effect imo.


Image
mamas_lil_yella_pils

An offensive line


Image
goettahead

Good for the Bengals for getting more authentic and engaging lately. Coming on here is awesome for us fans and glad to know you guys care. My initial thoughts are have a ‘combine’ interactive place where fans and kids can get their measurables, run a 40 timed, be scouted as a lineman, RB, QB maybe make it memorable with a certificate and learn about a Bengals legend at the position. Have a bunch of throwing/kicking/catching drills and contests you can do. Adults and kids alike will be in to that. Hope this helps


Image
Joe_Cool_77

Hype. 1000% Hype. Contests, giveaways, party atmosphere. This is the return of the GOAT, and the start of the new era. Loud music with a beat, harder rock and harder rap- No Katy Perry. Color everywhere, Orange Black and Jungle Green. Just do it up. Ring of honor is great, but what about the areas outside the stadium? Banners, posters, murals- Big icons represented.


Image
AceRockefeller

I'm not even a soccer fan, but a lot of soccer stadiums/fans do this right. I know we have an endzone with passionate fans but it's nothing like the fan sections in soccer stadiums or student sections at the top universities.

I don't know how much input you have into the music played on game day but I'm begging you if you have any input at all please for the love of everything stop playing oldies songs that were made before most of the players were born while we're on defense.


Image
PizzaRat1987

A few things I would like:


Image
Duzand

I'm throwing this off-topic comment out there, Bengals should be putting a small amount of $$ aside each year to help tiger conservation. Not only is it the right thing to do, imagine walking around XX animal sanctuary in whatever city and seeing small signs reading "Sponsored by the Cincinnati Bengals." Set up an area within PBS discussing the Bengals' efforts, bring in a live tiger for tailgating. Discuss how so-and-so tiger is headed to XX preserve and you guys saved his ass, you get the idea.


Image
shocksmybrain

I would like to be able to buy concessions without taking out a mortgage. Food and drink shouldn't cost more just because I'm trapped in the stadium.


Image
Swimcinnati_Kid

What if you made it a goal to bring in regional and local artists to paint over all the ugly gray concrete. Make the place “Instagram” famous my making it an amazing colorful place for photos. It’s a win win because you’d get all that earned media…

Concessions at PBS suck. Bring in some local restauranteurs in as partners, and sell their food at reasonable prices. (Here I am thinking of local chains more along the lines of Bakersfield, taste of Belgium, mazunte, taglio/goodfellas, etc, rather than Gold Star, larosas, Montgomery Inn 🤮.)

I know this is something the stadium has done in the past, but initiating a Who Dey chant after big plays always engages fans. Not the chant we get after the touchdowns either, just the words “Who Dey”

It would be cool to have a big screen TV by the entrance that played highlights from the year up to that game with cool music and stuff. That would get people excited about the game.


Image
grilledchzisbestchz

I would like to see better pre-game content. ESPN used to have this show, maybe still do- I don't have cable, called NFL matchup and they would break down tape and show what they predicted would be the integral part of the games that Sunday. Lapham is great, but his pre-game shows are just kind of meh. No offense to him at all, but I think the format needs updating. I want to hear from tape nerds and football gurus on the ins and outs of the game, not cliche "gotta win 3rd down" keys to the game. Give me 20-30 minutes of that and I'm tuning in each week. Even better if you put it on youtube so I can watch whenever I want.


Image
GreatWhite102

This is less inside/outside the stadium, but more engagement between the Bengals and Reds would be such an awesome addition. It would be cool to have more interaction (even on social media) between the two to one extent or the other, would help bring fans of both together even more!
