Default Art Modell dies

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/83...modell-dies-87

Not all the comments I've read from Cleveland fans are friendly. I can only imagine what will happen when Bud dies.

I think Bud is older than 87. BUT, regardless of how we really feel about these old dudes, they are part of the reason we have pro football today. Without them there would be NO Cleveland Browns, Balt Ravens, Tenn Titans, or Houston Texans!

My prayers will be sent for his family.

That's true. Without Bud, we'd be rooting for the Houston Cowboys and celebrating 5 Super Bowls in 9 appearances. true story...

As a Browns fan, I won't dance on the guy's grave. But the idea that somehow all the hate and anger will now go away is a joke. It's like the ex-wife who cheats on you, stomps on your heart and leaves and takes everything. You can move on in your life, but you don't have to suddenly say forgive, forget and say nice things.

gateslikeisaiah77
Die Hard Browns fan here....who remembers the move like it was yesterday.

I am not glad this guy is dead. And I never wished any harm on the guy. With that said, i don't have to like him or suddenly say he was a great guy. People who knew him said he was kind and friendly. That is fine. But plain and simple, he committed the worst sin an owner can commit. He moved a team that still had the support of the city.

Best wishes to his family and friends. But as a fan of the Browns, I don't suddenly view him in a different light

When Bud Adams dies I'll say the same thing I'm going to say about Art Modell dying.

"Good, now somebody cut off his head, pack his mouth with a pound of salt, and bury him face down so he doesn't come back"

That would be the greatest eff yew from H-Town that could ever be given.

When someone does something so bad that hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people hate that person, I have a hard time wagging a finger at the victims. Modell made his choices knowing full well what the fallout would be. Don't care about the Browns or Cleveland, but F&^% him.

yep. The NFL wanted to put the expansion team in Houston in 1960, but Bud pulled political strings to keep the NFL from using Rice Stadium. He did not want any competition with his new AFL team.

The NFL decided to just avoid the hassle and gave the team to Dallas. The AFL team in Dallas - the Dallas Texans - moved to Kansas City and became the Chiefs. The rest, as they say, is history.

It's well detailed in the book, Oiler Blues: The Story of Pro Football's Most Frustrating Team, among other sources.
