that we are relying on someone from Ohio State to have the ability to count to 61,000, which AHAHAHA no. I see though that they failed to mention that it was big news in Columbus last week that Urban made the AD cut prices to the game from $20 to $5 because Urban wanted to create more of an "SEC feel" at the game

and while Sherman has a point for those people who actually believe the media when they imply that this gang nonsense had anything to do with getting cut, that isn't the reason he was cut. It makes a nice story for the media and gives them something to flap their gums about, but the reality is whe the Eagles signed DJax to his new contract, it was widely known the Eagles would be looking to restructure the contract well before it expired. This year, the Eagles wanted to re-structure, and DJax was apparently looking for a raise. The last time DJax wanted a raise, he dogged it so badly for so long that many of his teammates were unhappy with him. I'm sure this played into the Eagles thinking more than anything else.
And for Sherman to compare this to Riley Cooper only proves that Sherman is as much of a sheep here as anyone. Riley Cooper is an idiot. Full stop. However, the reality is that DJax's social circle had almost nothing to do with him getting cut. For Sherman to say it's not fair for DJax to be cut because of "gang ties" while Cooper isn't cut for the indefensible things he said perpetuates this lazy media story. So, to me, Sherman is the guy trying to prove to us all how dumb we are and how smart he is, which is ironic because he was dumb enough to be a willing sheep for the media.
For the record, I was of the opinion that the media blew Shermans post game comments after the NFC Champ. game WAAAAAY out of proportion. Again it was the lazy media looking for an easy story to fill column inches and airtime between the championship games and the Super Bowl. I never had a problem with Richard Sherman, but right now, I'm tired of hearing from him.

whose best friend has had back surgery (stenosis and herniated discs) and a wife who has had one (sciatica, degenrative disc disorder) surgery and is about to have to undergo another (they said its goting to be ever 10 yrs +/-) I second this notion. No sense causing problems for the rest of his life. I don't even begin to imagine I know what they've gone through, but it's horrible to witness, let alone live through.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||a fun bit of trivia-||
when the league owners voted on whether or not to allow Modell to move to Baltimore after the 1995 season, Wilson was one of 2 owners who voted "No" (the other was Dan Rooney).
Thank you Mr. Wilson. Rest in peace.

Harbaugh's personal assistant is Mick Lombardi, son of Mike Lombardi, who worked with LaCanfora at NFL Network. The whole time Lombardi was the "GM" of the Browns, LaCanfora ran articl after article puffing up his boy, and then tried a takedown of the Browns as soon as Lombardi was canned (when, not even a week before he was supportive of the Browns moves, a total flip-flop).
I'm sure Harbaugh wants more money. He was never coming to the Browns. It may have been a plan cooked up by Lombardi and Harbaugh to make Lombardi seem heroic to Jimmy Haslam (word is that toward the end, Lombardi and banner were trying to cut each other's throats to save themselves) and save his job with the Browns, while Harbaugh uses the levarage for a raise, while Jason LaCanfora gets the scoop.
In my opinion anything coming from laCanfora that is even slightly related to Mike Lombardi is pure hogwash.

Goldhammer is the worst. I can handle Rizz being a Buckeye honk. It's unsurprising and makes sense. I would always turn it off if it was a Buckeye segment. But, AG is the wort thing to ever happen to sports radio in Cleveland since I started listening in the late 80's. I stopped listening to Rizzo because of Goldhammer. I have also crossed paths with him in the past in Lakewood bars, and he's just as obnoxious in person. My Buddy was working the door one night and wouldn't let him in, saying is ID was fake. Goldhammer was apopleptic and it was hysterical.

Dad from Ferndale, Mom from Collinwood. Born in Royal Oak and moved to the East Side of Cleveland when I was about a year old. At least I was saved from the Lions by my Dad, whoi disavowed them after they ruined Billy Sims. Too bad my maternal Grandfather had Browns season tix from 1948-1983.

seriously, Modell became majority owner in 1961. He fired Paul Brown in 1963. The Browns won the 64 NFL title with a team (led by Jim Brown) built largely by Paul Brown. Then he "fired" Jim freaking Brown. The next 30 years, zip. zilch. Nada. The, he took the team to Baltimore. Then the NFL granted the new Browns to Al Lerner, the guy who was unsuccessful in obtaining an NFL franchise for Baltimore when the league expanded with CAR/JAX, who also intorduced Modell to his Baltimore partners to work out a stadium deal on Lerners plane.
Seriously, you can tie everything bad that has ever happened to the Browns back to Art Modell. Burn in hell, Art Modell

a knee jerk job by Haslam. It has been in the works for a little while. Pettine is Haslam's choice, and Farmer was consulted via telephone (he was in Mobile). While Farmer hadn't been told he was in line for a promotion (allegedly), Haslam had already been discussing Banner's exit from the team with Banner a couple of weeks ago (again, rumor). The rumors of Lombardi being forced out have persited on Twitter for a couple of weeks at least. Apparently, he all but promised he could deliver McDaniels before Chud was let go, and, well, that didn't happen. Once that blew up in Lombardi's face, Haslam strted to get the idea that no one around the league has much respect for Lombardi, and that set things in motion.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||This is good news||
no snark intended. Today is a good day for Cleveland Browns fans. Lombardi and Banner could have been replaced with a bent 7 iron and a two-legged tripod and the Browns still would have performed addition by subtraction. Replacing them with actual, honest to God, know what they're doing in their roles people who have the respect of others around the league? Yahtzee! Scheiner and Farmer are both rising stars with a bullet, and I'm glad Haslam didn't futz around and risk losing them because he was worried that the mainstream media would make fun of him.
Rumor is Haslam never wanted Banner to begin with, but Banner was forced on him by the NFL. Ehh whatever, it's all revisionist history now, but at the end of the day, the Browns are better today than they were yesterday.
The only "negativity" you will see/hear about this will come from national media types who are "friends" with Lombardi. Of course they're going to have to take up for their boy. And not for nothing, but they all just lost a good source as well. So, there will be sreeches heard from the national level, plus everyone loves to swing at low hanging fruit.
Good luck Lombardi, maybe your pal Bill Belichik will give you a job in New England like he did after Al Davis fired you. Oh wait, not even Belichik would hire you, BECAUSE YOU SUCK
