I was there as well, and it was very much sold out.
The Cavs do that for every natural rival. They also put up pictures of Ray Lewis, John Elway, Ben Roethlisberger, Derek Jeter, etc. They even put up Florida and LSU stuff to rile up the fans.

Good, after the Browns franchise him, they'll get a late first from Chicago for him.
For a team with an enforcer like Urlacher, it would probably be best for him. But he and Winslow were running the roost in Cleveland, with no leadership from the head coach and no veteran presence to keep him in line. Not the best situation for him.

I must've missed the time he said he'd leave Cleveland for Europe.....

He's been pretty childish his entire career. He once called out his own teammate for a hard hit on an opposing WR. He also never has taken responsibility for all his dropped passes.
He will likely get a fresh start elsewhere next season, so maybe things will change. Bit given his track record, this incident isn't all that surprising.
|5 years 45 weeks ago||Suspended, expelled are||
Suspended, expelled are issues for school adminsitrators.
But legally, the penalty will be light.
|5 years 45 weeks ago||I am not saying he shouldn't||
I am not saying he shouldn't have been suspended. When your are a football player, being out and getting in a fight is never a good thing.
He won't go to prison, though.
|5 years 45 weeks ago||1) I do know him||
1) I do know him personally.
2) I talked to someone who was there. The two got in a fight over a girl, and during the fight, Milano, a wrestler and a very strong kid, basically slammed him to the ground. If you follow that link to the ESPN story, there is a guy who posted the version of the story I heard, although he goes into more detail than even I knew.
The report says he walked up behind Kampfer and slammed him down. That is a despicable act. Milano would never do something like that. That seems akin to attempted murder.
Even good people get in fights. When twe guys fight, and one gets seriously injured while the other is unharmed, the unijured one always looks worse. He'll have to live with the consequences of that, but this wasn't the "sneak up behind him" deal that has been reported.
|5 years 45 weeks ago||Well then||
I want to emphasize 2 things 1) Mike Milano is a good kid and a good student. 2) The way the incident has been reported is erroneous.
I am sure we are of the same opinion that we wish Kampfer a speedy recovery. But the story has unfairly relfected upon Milano.

Wait for the facts to come out.
I am ascerting he's a good kid. If you wanted me to use a cliche besides "credit to the school", then feel free to add your own. The media is portraying as a thug and a coward, and it isn't the truth.
|5 years 45 weeks ago||And who the hells body-slams||
And who the hells body-slams someone onto concrete as an act of self-defense? A wrestler.
I don't know what newspaper "The Daily" is. But if it goes along with the "Milano snuck up behind" version of the story, I am saying that version is false. I don't know if it is an eye-witness lying or what, but that version of the story is not accurate.
Here is the version I heard http://myespn.go.com/s/conversations/show/story/3645575
|5 years 45 weeks ago||I hope the facts come out.||
I hope the facts come out. This was more self defense than an unprovoked attack. Milano is a good student and a credit to the school. People (specifically, the hockey coach) are dragging his name through the mud without knowing the situation

His father is a well respected attorney. He'll get minimum legal punishment.
