GO NINERS! I don't care much for either team, but I do really enjoy watching Colin Kaepernick play. He was awesome at Nevada and nothing much has changed, besides those tats....I'm sure if the 49ers win, there will be a new tattoo on the horizon for CK.
Another reason I want SF to win is the simple fact that it'll irratate the Steelers fans to see a team go 6-0 in SB's and eclipse them!
prediction.......SF 30, Bal 27
I thought about addressing them, and then I thought back over the years and HOW MANY TIMES I explained it to ignorant defenders...They say they were here in 1994, which I am not questioning, but their heads were OBVIOUSLY stuck in the sand, because their "details" are never accurate...The day I need you to explain anything to me about the city of Cleveland or consider me to be "ignorant" iin comparison to your all-knowledgeable self, I'll off myself. I was here in 1994, I have been here since the early 70s. I read the newspapers (Plain Dealer AND Sun Press) and saw multiple TV broadcasts on a DAILY basis. So just how are your details anymore accurate than mine? Do you even live in the city, anywhere close even?
As for you LBG....If you had any inclination of writing about anything true, you would realize this isn't his first ballot...He simply has been voted down consistently every year. He made it to this point one other time, in 2002, and he was put back in his place in history which is NOT in the HOF.Whatever the hell ballot it was, it is the first one after his death. And as far as putting hinm back in his place, that is ridiculously laughable. It is a sheer numbers game, plain and simple. I know your bias and hatred would love to have you led to believe that the case, but I assure you it isn't. Hell, Bill Parcells just was elected for the first time. Eddie DeBartolo hasn't come any closer either and last I checked he had a dynasty. But again nice try in spinning an argument to suit your agenda. So please point out to me where I constantly write untruths, I would love to see an example. I am sorry if you have so much time on your hands and you never make "mistakes" but aggain I am not into petty ass arguments or anal about statistics and the like. Complete fabrications however I will not be accused of and take lightly. Oh and btw sorry about the delay to your post, but I haven't been on here in days.
LBG, Art Modell sucks! Plenty of appropriate places for the "Modell" sympathizers to co-miserate. I would think the freakin DPL would be about the last place to ever come run that horsechit. You had to know that wasn't going to be a popular stance... And don't act liked that fat basterd was so noble. Bottom line: He got a better stadium deal in a different city. So he uprooted a cornerstone franchise in this league and broke the hearts of millions of loyal supporters...There was such backlash that it forced the NFL to promise the city of Cleveland a new team upon completion of the new stadium (one that was in the works for Art anyway), and also forced that fat phuque to leave it all behind! Not sure if you are aware of this, but that is unprecedented in the history of proffessional franchise moves.......All the records. All the incredible team history, and most importantly, the colors! EVERYTHING. He had to leave it behind in the faithfull city that supported his team with an absolute passion for all those years...If he ever gets in the HoF, then the HoF loses all credibility in my book...He gave up the HoF when he took the $$$$ and ran to Baltimore. That trumps any and all good he ever did for this league......Hate to break it to you, but I don't go getting al lbent out of shape because of the title of a thread. I state my opinions and belifs no matter where the hell I am at in real life or cyber space. I will not be told when and where to respond to lunacy. I did absolutely know it wouldn't be popular and last I checked I wasn't running in a popularity contest. There was no intentions of "stirring the pot" as you seem to imply. Yes, he got a better stadium deal in a different city. And your point is what? Cleveland had first dibs. Your backlash had influence no doubt, but guess wqhat you forced nothing. The National Football League didn't HAVE to do ish. They chose to influence Art to give up the colors and history. Guess what, Art could have taken them with him regardless of what you might wish to believ to be true. Did Art Modell look like he shed a tear by not getting the colors and name that he basically created? If you believe yes you kid only yourself. The fact that you consider the Browns a cornerstone franchise at the time of their departure I'll chalk up to a compliment to Art Modell. We thank you and say carry on.
LBG ..Your a Cowchip fan your opinion means chit to me . since you have such a crush on the rat bastage why arent you a Rats fan then ?And the same can be said of your opinion when it comes to me. I am not a Ravens fan because I was born and bred IN CLEVELAND. How about you?
even after the move the dumbazz had to sell the Rats because he was broke. good thing for Rats fans as that weird kid of his doesnt own them .And that is where you are completely and utterly wrong. So wrong that I am literally LMAO. He sold the Ravens to make money as all other products and companies do regularly. How long exactly is a man supposed to own a professional football team? No man lives forever and he knew it. And I won't speak on his sons, but who says they wanted to run a professional frnachise? You people run on
Stay the hell off this thread LBG ..Your a trollOh I get it, I'm a troll now because your lady parts got hurt for a second. Or is it the fact that I actually dared to disagree on a subject? It seems that is the case as has been pointed out by other random posters. It is a agree and no room for discention thread? Sorry but last I checked this was America and I am not yelling fire in a theater. It's a damn thread, calm the hell down.
So all of a sudden, it was "Cleveland government offers to renovate Municipal instead of a new stadium for the Browns"...Not EXACTLY what happened..That was the compromise for Modell wanting no part of financial responsibility. They would renovate on the cities dime and he would continue his sweetheart deal of taking in the game day proceeds...MINUS of course the Indians...Oh you mean like half the teams in the NFL have done since. Oh I get ya now. So he was an innovator in that aspect to of cities helping or sharing a good part of the financial burden of building a new stadium. Yeah ridiculous to suggest that an owner not come completely out of his pocket to fund the whimsy of local residents.
His debt did not make this possible, so he sold his Cleveland soul and the rest is history...
KNOW the background if you are going to decide to take this to another thread...because once it is out of the solitude of the lounge, you will get even more retractors to your "theory"...

Crazy Crex’s Musings:
The Good, the Bad, the Ugly, Super Bowl Weekend:
Art Modell failed to make the first cut for selection into the HOF. Ding Dong…
So let's all put anything and everything AM behind us and not speak of this topic again. I for one am over it.
The big game reminded me of some good old fashioned AFCN smash mouth football with a modern twist. Watching the big guys battle in the trenches all day was enjoyable. I'd read and heard that even the 49ers resembled a team that hailed from the AFCN. and it showd yesterday. Reminded me of some of those epic Steeler/Browns battles once upon a time.
Even better was Ray Lewis’s age show on the field, several times he was caught flat footed and frozen in space. I believe he had more missed tackles than he did tackles. Good riddance I say, hopefully we won’t have to endure all the Ray love(VOMIT) any longer… Well at least until he comes up for HOF selection.
The Dirty Rotten Chicken Turds won…
The Commercials, I generally unimpressed with any of the commercials. There was one or two I did like, but overall the advertising
industry flopped big-time. Boring...
The Ravens team that won yesterday has and had nothing resembling the team that left in 1995. That was Ozzie’s team with his fingerprints all over it. Sorry OZ man you are NOT a Cleveland Brown any more, you’re a DRCT.
Even uglier is that they were the better team yesterday. That is our measuring stick folks.
“It’s over: We’re instituting a 24-hour rule on this one. Wallow in self-pity for a day, and then be done with it.” Tony Grossi
I agree whole heartedly. Let us as fans slam the door behind us on that ugly chapter that was Art Modell and his DRCTs. Let us instead open a new chapter on a brighter more hopeful future for the Browns, their fans, and the city of Cleveland.
Despite the fact I am not very excited about the Browns at this point there is potential. It will be up to the new regime that is in Cleveland to dmonstrate that they will have a product to get excited about. I'm optomistcally on the sidelines unitl then.
One more round before I go.
The Commercials, I generally unimpressed with any of the commercials. There was one or two I did like, but overall the advertisingI noticed the same thing...The economy has caught up with advertising. This had to have been the single worst Network gross Super Bowl in years, possible a decade or better.
industry flopped big-time. Boring...
There were a couple of decent ones overall, but no "water cooler" ones imho.
The Taco Bell spot was really funny (especially at MY age) and the Clydesdale pony was pretty good as well.Yes, I liked both Lym and they were the ones that stood out...But there certainly weren't 8-10 like in years past that many were debating as their favorite...
