Being a Clevelander, I was going to post this earlier in the week when the Plain Dealer broke the story. But then I leaned on my Cleveland Sports heritage and said if I close my eyes and pray, it will all go away. Unfortunately, the FBI doesn't raid your HQ with 30+ agents and try to seize all your hard drives for no reason.

Usually I try to stay positive about Cleveland and our sports. But damn... it seems like every other year, we find a new way to screw something up, let our selves down, or blow it.

I totally agree with you, but ever since the Browns came back in 99, they really haven't done that well. C'mon, going to the playoffs once? I will admit, the Browns have talent, if they could just get the right people in their organization, they could have a good team. This story probably won't go away, because they'll mention it durning the first game against Miami.

Also, there's a rumor that the Browns might trade down in the draft. That's another shocker...

Well, it looks like the Browns are getting sold again. On the bright side, we found a prosective owner for the Phoenix Coyotes.

Just when we thought 2 over hauls in the last 4 years was crazy... might as well make it 3.

This won't mean crap. They'll kill off a few sacrificial lambs to appease the mob, put some fresh faces in front of a mic who say the right things, then carry on.

I heard on our local radio station, WKNR, stating their opinion that the NFL might ask Haslam to step aside from the Browns until the investigation is done. I would call this "The 'Why can't the Browns have anything good go their way'".
