    And that is what hurts and annoys me the most. As a fan base, we've got nothing. Even our nasty jokes about Big Ben or art modell... they don't hurt their target...

    I need a drink.
    Actually we do, and I'll explain why.

    We sell out every damn game year in and year out. Think of how bad we have been since 1999 and also include some of the bad years we had before that. Make sure you remember the bad luck we had, Red Right 88, The Drive, the embarrasement. Remember the team being yanked away and such a crappy piss porn ran team we have had.

    Now imagine if this was all not happening in Cleveland but in another city...now tell me, would they still sell out games, have the largest backers club in the world. Have fans that are still one of the most loyal and diehard anywhere. Thats what we have as a comeback.

    See people don't realize...id actually rather have a team that rarely wins so when greatness occurs, its cherished and is something special. Not like a team that is so accustom to winning that if they dont make it to the Super Bowl their season is considered a failure. Call me crazy but we dont ask for much, just a good product or team we can be proud of.

    But we NEVER get it!

    Also, Bills' fans are pretty damn loyal.

    But still, I'd rather have some hope and a less committed fan base... wouldn't you?

    Id have to disgree with your last point bc i would not like to be like jacksonville. Id rarher have the city and fans support the team than have a better record if i had to pick one or the other

    Fascination perspective Bobby, I've never quite understood how the city came back when a new team with the old name arrived.

    1.) Modell = We Clevelanders have hidden a homing device in his cloths. If he comes in a 250 mile radius of the city, 30 land-based ICBM Missiles will come thundering down on him. And No, Obama did not sign off on this yet, but we don't really care, it's all staying.

    2.) Lebron = Well let's just say we all wish him a dying death and not just in terms of his professional career, but literally in a physical way. May your career stink like the very toilet you crap in every day. And it is true, we really do have weekly bonfires that consist of oil drums with his jerseys burning all weekend long and we cook Heb dogs over them.


    Ok in light of Art Modell's passing. I don't want people to think I'm that much of a prick. So my condolences do go out to his family.

    Modell gets credit for leaving the name, colors and history in Cleveland. He didn't have to do that.

    Wax - now, now...

    To a Browns fan - particularly those in the Cleveland area - pointing out that the new corpse wasn't 100% despicable is like telling a guy that even though the woman he loves left him, emptied his bank accounts, killed his dog and burned down his house, at least she remembered to pay the cable bill.
