    Located in Cincinnati, Ohio
    One retired number: Bob Johnson's #54

Why they might be annoying:

    They went into a rapid decline in the years following their appearance in Super Bowl XXIII.
    Their futility led to them being nicknamed 'the Bungles' by detractors.
    Their 'Who Dey?' chant is ripped off from the New Orleans Saints 'Who Dat?.'

Why they might not be annoying:

    They have great rivalries with the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers.
    They were the first franchise to exclusively scout and draft players out of smaller colleges.
    They played in two Super Bowl games during the 1980's.
    They returned to respectability following the hiring of Marvin Lewis and drafting of Carson Palmer in 2003.
