    Protest Thread

    The NFL chose to support Socialism, Anarchy and Marxism. I stopped watched the NFL or supporting it in ANY way. It's funny the people in my life (work, family, friends) that are amazed. It's truly simple. Browns (NFL) fan for 50 years (1970-2019). Proud American since birth (1962-2020) for 58 years. 58-50 wins. I love my country and even in my nearly old age I will fight for her in any way I can. I won't argue or fight with ANYONE here. There are lots of you who I have deep respect for including the originator of this page and the current moderator. I respect your right to feel the way you do. I expect the same. I do and will miss you guys. Love ya man. PS: When and if Clay Matthews and Joe Thomas are inducted into the Hall Of Fame I will be there to cheer those guys.

    This Week in the AFC North

    That could be a dude's ass. Probably floating a package out front, but I'm sure you Skanksburgh cretins dig that sort of thing. The asses Zombo posted......those are WOMEN'S asses.

    Crazy game

    Yeah, LA is currently sporting twin scumbag NFL owners. Spanos (the dead one and the living one) are equally culpable.

    Crazy game

    My brother has lived in St. Louis for the past 22 years and gave me the lowdown on Kroenke .If any owner can give Uncle Scum a run for his money in the douchebaggery sweepstakes it is Kroenke. He made a multitude of promises to the St. Louis fans and broke every single one of them AND left them holding the bag on the Edward Jones Dome which sits empty 95% of the year. The fact that he was already sickeningly rich just makes it worse. It makes it hard for me to feel good about the Rams.

    RIP Stan "Atenears" Aten

    No. That was Kathy Hutchins aka KS Hutchins aka Woof Woof Kathy. She is also sorely missed. Kathy was around before all of us. She started on the Compuserve Browns board and was in on the ground floor of the AOL Grandstand board even before I got there......which was January 1995. I'm sure Stan is currently picking on her about her orange bra and socks.

    Judging by the turnout at Stan's service tonight he never met anyone that wasn't his friend. I never saw anything quite like it. Farewell my friend.......and yeah, there needs to be a memorial party/tailgate/weekend.

    Wow. Fantastic post John. I had no idea the depth of what you went through. I'm glad you made it through that......and God bless Stan for being there when you needed him.

    RIP Stan "Atenears" Aten

    I wasn't as close to Stan as many of you were. Not long after that first amazing tailgate in 1999 my now ex-wife went off the rails and it fell to me to hold my family together for the next 12 years so I was extremely limited in how much and how often I could be involved in the tailgates, the board and all the festivities surrounding a Browns home weekend. I only bring this up to shine a light on my favorite memory of Stan. In 2000 my ex-wife had left and I was working a full-time job and taking care of all the needs of all four of my kids. A truly daunting task that I had discussed with very few people. It wasn't fun to talk about. I had revealed it to Stan however. That summer he invited my sons and I to his home for a day of fun. He provided food. Opened his home to us and escorted us to the Browns practice facility where for the first time in my long Browns fandom I got to watch the Browns at training camp. It was a wonderful day of peace for my sons and I amidst the maelstrom that was our lives at that time. Stan ENTIRELY made that day happen and he did it for us. My older son was never a big sports fan but he still talks about that day. My younger son became a HUGE sports fan and that day was a catalyst for that. I can still remember sitting there next to him discussing alternately, The Browns and our kids. He loved his kids. He loved the kids he coached. Collectively they were everything to him. I always liked Stan and felt he understood that everyone deserved their voice here. That everyone had a different way of expressing their feelings regarding our team and he let that happen and let us be who we are for good or bad or ugly. Stan is (I refuse to say was) the ultimate Cleveland fan and my respect for that alone would be enough for me to have loved the guy......but the way he was to his kids and the way he treated my kids forever earned my respect. Stan, thank you. You will forever be missed.

    RIP Stan "Atenears" Aten

    This is absolutely horrible news. I never knew a more dedicated advocate for Cleveland, Cleveland Sports, Cleveland Fans and no one was more fun to be around. There are people that just bring life and excitement to everything they do and that was ALWAYS Stan. I am blessed to have known him for 22 years and to have been able to call him my friend. This is a huge blow. It takes a lot for me to be speechless but I really am at this moment God Bless you man, God bless your family and thank you so much for this forum, for the tailgates, for all the sparring matches dating back to the AOL days. You good sir are irreplaceable. 😪😪😥

    The Stealth Tailgate

    You're right! I informed him a little while ago we're leaving Sandusky by 8....so now it's 9:30 at the latest!! Hope to see you Stan, you haven't been at the last few I have attended. It isn't the same without our original El Jefe!

    The Stealth Tailgate

    A friend of mine from work and I are coming. I have no idea who will be there but I plan on being under the bridge by no later than 10:30. If it's just the three of us Larry.......I'm telling you right now....I CAN'T drink ALL that 'Orange Shit!'

    That one was a WTF moment for me. It hipped me to the fact that our FO was lost at sea.....again.

    11 Browns protest

    These players are doing this ostensibly to protest the 'divisions' in our country when in reality all this act does is to further widen existing divisions or to create new divisions. There are SO many things a professional player can or could do with their notoriety and income stream to HELP heal the divisions in our country but very very few do. They talk about bringing 'awareness.' Why is no one focusing their 'awareness' for example to what brought Tamir Rice to the park waving around a realistic toy gun and aiming it at passing cars. The reality is that kid never had a chance. Because he was failed by his parents and anyone resembling a role model. Yet somehow his pathetic excuse for a 'mother' cashed in. I'm not giving the cops a pass either. The cop that shot him should never have been re-employed by any agency after his abject failure during his first go around. He was ill prepared for what he rightly perceived as a hostile situation. You try being a cop and rolling up on someone waving a gun around. Talk about a thankless task. I wouldn't want that job. Meanwhile you have all these hate groups fomenting dissension. The KKK, Antifa, Black Lives Matter. I can't keep up but make no mistake....they are ALL hate groups trying to demonize some 'other' group of people without EVER trying to offer anything resembling a solution. So I'm to believe these players were praying for peace? We've all seen what's in Isaiah Crowells heart and mind already. His solution is to slit the throat of cops. How nice. Go check Jabrill Peppers rap sheet. I'm sure he's a pacifist. Insert eyeroll here. Some of these players 'may' have meant well by this gesture but I guarantee for the majority of them it was just a middle finger to their mythical "The Man." What these players and EVERYONE should be doing is getting THEIR house right. Raise your kids with respect and love for themselves and their fellow man. If you ignore them and let them raise themselves you get what is happening all too often throughout our failing society. Drug overdoses and violent crime with no concern for the consequences. Good luck to these players making the paycheck they do now when the country they seem to detest so much has splintered apart. Go ahead. Whatever stupid 'side' you've chosen, be it Trump, Hillary, Democrats, Republicans, Black Lives Matter, Nazis, KKK. YOU are at fault. Society just like a football team is built from the ground up. Get your family right. Get YOU right and do something proactive rather than trying to piss off someone else.

    This Week in the NFL Playoffs

    I'm calling Sunday "The Day The Bandwagons Burn." Slaggsburgh and Dull@$$ both meet defeat and their flaccid frontrunning fans disappear into the woodwork for the next 8 months.
