I'm still convinced if you asked a Browns' fan who was more evil, Modell or Hitler, that they would want to ponder the question before answering, and that the vote would be close.
Exactly, and your point proves it has nothing to do with the fans, just politics. Bud was a horrible politician and that is why he got stuck having to move into a smaller, less desirable market. If Bud would haved "played ball" a little more intelligently he would have gotten his stadium and been able to stay where he wanted.
The man obviously still longs for Texas if his draftday decisions are any indication.
