Default Bad day to be a Browns fan

Ravens going to another Super Bowl after that franchise just broke hearts while it was in Cleveland for all of those years.

To make matters worse their current franchise is worse than the old one was when it was in Cleveland.

You have to really feel for that fan base.

I used to but not anymore - They have had a team for a long enough period, plus Modell is dead.

Default Re: Bad day to be a Browns fan

I don't see how this has anything to do with Cleveland at this point. Cleveland has had all types of years to get going again. Baltimore Ravens is a completely different franchise at this point just like the Oilers and the Titans are. Nothing the Titans do is of any consequence to me as an old Oilers fan, because the Oilers died and the Titans were created. Same with the Ravens. Hell Model isn't even alive anymore either. If the Browns fans want to feel pitty for themselves, then they deserve to be where they are at. Their franchise sucks because of their team's management. The Baltimore Ravens success isn't hindering them a bit.

He's saying that any day ending in "Y" is a bad day to be a Browns fan.

Every day ends in "Y", so basically every day is a bad day to be a Browns fan.

Default Re: Bad day to be a Browns fan

Meh. If I was a Browns fan today, I would probably be kind of happy since I think their DC (Ray Horton, from AZ) and OC (Norv Turner, from SD) are both pretty good at what they do and Chudzinski is not a bad HC candidate at all.

Now, about that whole drafting a 30 year old QB in the first round. . .

Default Re: Bad day to be a Browns fan

As a Ravens fan, I don't feel sorry for Browns fans at all. They didn't have it as bad as Baltimore fans did when the Colts left.

-Art Modell never lied to anyone- he told them straight up what was happening. HHe was going broke.

-City of Cleveland built a Rock n Roll HOF, new Cavaliers auditorium and Jacobs Field. Art lost alot of $$$ when the Indians moved to their new field. The city refused to rehab Municipal stadium.

-Art announced they were leaving well before he did; B0b Irsay stole the Colts out of the city in the middle of the night. after lying in a press conference saying he would never move the team.

-We went without football for 12 years; Cleveland missed 3 years.

-We lost our colors, history and records; Cleveland kept all theirs.

I feel nothig aboout what transpired. I do know Toni Grossi conspires against Art's HOF nomination every year...

We know a little something about losing colors, etc. After losing our team I am not sure how I would have felt stealing someone elses team though. For example if the Seahawks would have moved here and become the Texans. Of course the plus side is that you get a ready built team and don't have to wait for years as with an expansion team.

BTW, I just realized both of your pro teams were formerly the Browns. The Orioles were the St Louis Browns.

Default Re: Bad day to be a Browns fan

Carpet bagging owners suck. That's just an incontrovertible fact. The thing I can't really let go about Baltimore (and to a lesser extent St Louis) is that they had it done to them and lost a team, then turned around and did it to someone else.

Baltimore took the Browns from Cleveland just like St. Louis took the Rams from Los Angeles. Sure the owners chose to make the moves and sure you can quibble about the details but either way those people got screwed and then knowing full well what that felt like they screwed someone else in exactly the same way.

Cmon man...not even a little bit? That's just wrong.

When is the last time the Browns made the playoffs? I mean their most exciting players in recent years are Peyton Hillis, Joshua Cribbs, and Derek Anderson? Was that his name?

Agree on this. Besides that QB though, their GM that they canned had actually gathered some really good talent. I like the staff they have in place though.
