The Bengals are letting Joe Mixon's work demeanor speak for itself.

Cincinnati took the former Oklahoma running back in the second round of the NFL Draft and some fans were shocked. Mixon has issues stemming from hitting a woman in the face and many in Cincinnati are not thrilled with his arrival. Local TV station WCPO is calling for a boycott of the team. 

"We are urging every Bengals fan to take drastic action," the WCPO Editorial Board wrote. "Instead of buying a Bengals ticket this year, take the $50 or more you would have spent on that ticket and donate the money to a nonprofit that works to prevent violence against women... Enough is enough, Bengals. We can excuse another season without winning a playoff game. We can't excuse drafting a player like Joe Mixon."
