Art Modell is dead...maybe it’s time to move on?

In any case the Browns, at least, have a new owner...he’s got to be an upgrade...across the Lake in Detroit, people are really suffering...fifty years of William Clay Ford, well known ex-alcoholic, scion of the Ford family...pushed off by them to play with his football toy...of course, he wrecked it many years ago.

What a miserable, miserable franchise! And fifty years in...no one can tell Billy anything about running an NFL franchise. Russ Thomas, Matt Millen, and now Mayhew and Schwartz...all incompetent.

Why oh why do people continue to buy tickets to the Lie-downs, Browns, Bills, Chiefs, and Jets???? Why?

“Art Modell is dead...maybe it’s time to move on?”

What a silly comment.

I wonder if the folks in Baltimore are dispassionate about the Colts?

Do you think the St. Louis fans don’t care about the Cardinals?

NFL teams try to play up the hometown team loyalty angle, until they find a better deal. And in doing so, create long term ill will when they move on. Art Modell was simply the catalyst. The fact that he’s dead means very little to most Cleveland fans. I will acknowledge there are some who would love to pee on his grave. I’m not in that group.
