    Survey Sunday

    Doing this survey on a Sunday for the first time. Give your answer/opinions: 1. Which of the Brown's new acquisitions...by trade/FA/Draft will have the biggest impact on the team this coming year? 2. If you were not a Browns fan......if you are one, which other NFL team, if any would you be a fan of? 3. Have you either played football above the high school level....or coached football at any level? 4. Besides Tom Brady....with his good looks, his hot wife, his money, his fame...and not least of all, his incredible success......is there any football player, past or present whose life you would want to emulate? 5. The current Jeopardy Champion was asked what he will be doing with some of the money he won, and he stated: My wife and family and I will be doing "Year of WOW".....and he explained that that will be where they will choose 12 cities over the world where they will spend a month each, just taking in everything about that city: the culture, atmosphere, attractions, food, etc. etc. So....if YOU were able to do the same for whatever the reason (like winning the lottery), which 12 cities would you choose to spend a month in for each? Anywhere in the world. WOW!!

He also played QB some...amassing about 1200 yards passing in just his 3 years (again, given the times, that was a fair amount) And, Oh,yeah.....there were those 31 years he served on the US Supreme Court, appointed by JFK: https://constitutioncenter.org/blog/justice-byron-white-a-retrospective

    Survey Sunday

    Doing this survey on a Sunday for the first time. Give your answer/opinions: My own: 1. Which of the Brown's new acquisitions...by trade/FA/Draft will have the biggest impact on the team this coming year? I am going to be a bit different here and say: Sheldon Richardson. Because of his disruptive ability in the center of the line, more attention will have to be paid to him...which will allow our outside guys Garrett and Vernon to have fewer double teams, giving them better opportunities to get sacks and pressures. If they do not give extra attention to him...then he tears the other team apart on the inside. The shortest distance between 2 points (and to the QB) is a straight line....and he will be on the likes of BR/Dalton....and whomever else the Browns face like stink on shit if they don't try to do extra to handle him. 2. If you were not a Browns fan......if you are one, which other NFL team, if any would you be a fan of? Oh, probably the Packers. We went through this back in the days of the "inactive period" from 1996/97/98. The Packers are a small...community owned team, with no single greedy owner. Plus they are a remnant of the early days of the NFL that had teams in smaller cities like Akron, Canton, Muncie, Pottsville, Duluth....Green Bay...etc. Plus my wife is from Wisconsin and they were my father-in-laws favorite team. I don't give much of a shit about them now...but if there were no Cleveland Browns....the Packers would be the least wretched alternative. 3. Have you either played football above the high school level....or coached football at any level? Neither, not built for football. Played baseball in HS but not beyond. 4. Besides Tom Brady....with his good looks, his hot wife, his money, his fame...and not least of all, his incredible success......is there any football player, past or present whose life you would want to emulate? Given my profession, the choices here would be between Byron "Whizzer" White, (NFL player who went on to become a US Supreme Court Justice), or Alan Page...who was a Minnesota State Supreme Court Justice. 5. The current Jeopardy Champion was asked what he will be doing with some of the money he won, and he stated: My wife and family and I will be doing "Year of WOW".....and he explained that that will be where they will choose 12 cities over the world where they will spend a month each, just taking in everything about that city: the culture, atmosphere, attractions, food, etc. etc. So....if YOU were able to do the same for whatever the reason (like winning the lottery), which 12 cities would you choose to spend a month in for each? Anywhere in the world. WOW!! London..... Edinboro Paris Nice....in France Barcelona Venice Tokyo, Sydney, Australia Vancouver Toronto New York City Barberton....South Africa! (sister city to city I was born in, and those are the only 2 cities in the world with that name)

    Weapons Production

    OK, no, this thread is not concerning the companies in the following link (the largest weapons producers in the world...fyi, the names Remington and Winchester do not show up): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Companies_by_arms_sales No, this is about the Browns weapons productions. Here are some bare bones stats of the "skill" players on the Browns whom they will be utilizing to shred enemy defenses this season. These are career numbers. Odell Beckham Jr. 5 years 390 catches 5476 yards 44 TDs Jarvis Landry 5 years 481 catches 5014 yards 26 TDs Rashard Higgins 3 years 72 catches 961 yards 6 TDs Antonio Callaway 1 year 43 catches 586 yards 5 TDs David Njoku 2 years 88 catches 1025 yards 8 TDs Demetrius Harris 5 years 57 catches 605 yards 6 TDs Seth Devalve 3 years 48 catches 594 yards 4 TDs Nick Chubb 1 year 192 carries for 996 yards 8 TDs 20 catches for 149 yds and 2 TDs Kareem Hunt 2 years 453 carries for 2151 yds 15 TDs 79 catches for 833 yds and 10 TDs Duke Johnson 4 years 259 carries for 1286 yards 5 TDs 255 catches for 2170 yards and 8 TDs. Baker Mayfield 1 year 310/486 63.8% 3725 yards 27 TDs

    Ass....is the word you are looking for. (but just let me say....that even if a Steeler fan's ass is not in the front...like this person, they still find a way to stick their head up it. See the two posts on here by their King. He is like that three headed dog from Harry Potter. He has one head up his ass in the back, and one up his ass in the front....and another he still is able to grunt and groan whatever he is trying to communicate with. Hell...maybe in fact he IS the person in that photo. You never know.

    How is it that her butt crack is in her front? Or are you saying that Steeler fans are simply double assholes.

    Again, WTF makes you think that this has any fucking thing to do with you...other than the fact that you are among the hoard of stupid Steeler fans. Pretty much all Steeler fans are stupid. You must you feel that you are at the apex of that group if you think this is solely about you. So, I guess congratulations are in order: Congratulations on being at the head of the stupidest fan base in sports. You deserve the honor.

    Darron Lee won't be wearing Brown

    Well....apparently he wasn't even worth that to 30 other teams, as that must have been the best offer he got for him

    Personal Conduct

    Regarding the bold- too often this just devolves into back and forth mudslinging that no one else on the board has an interest in. "I'm right,no I'm right". This is a damn football forum, not a debate society platform. And if you noticed when we were discussing the merits of Greedy Williams with a Pittsburgh fan, it usually just turns into a circular argument. But that, at least, was about football.

    Dyin' for Zion

    Here is there current roster...or at least the one from this past season. (some are out...some will be out): Here is the Cavaliers’ current roster, with position, age, height/weight and college in parentheses. Deng Adel, SF, age 22, 6-7/200 (Louisville) Jaron Blossomgame, SF, age 25, 6-8/220 (Clemson) Marquese Chriss, PF, age 21, 6-10/240 (Washington) Jordan Clarkson, PG, age 26, 6-5/194 (Missouri) Matthew Dellavedova, PG, age 28, 6-4/200 (Saint Mary's) Channing Frye, PF, age 35, 7-0/255 (Arizona) (I believe he has retired, no?) John Henson, F, age 28, 6-11/219 (North Carolina) Brandon Knight, PG, age 27, 6-3/195 (Kentucky) Kevin Love, PF, age 30, 6-10/251 (UCLA) Larry Nance Jr., PF, age 26, 6-9/230 (Wyoming) David Nwaba, SG, age 26, 6-4/219 (Cal Poly) Cedi Osman, SF, age 24, 6-8/215 (None) Collin Sexton, PG, age 20, 6-2/190 (Alabama) J.R. Smith, SG, age 33, 6-6/225 (None) did not play at all last year...unlikely to this year either Nik Stauskas, SG, age 25, 6-6/205 (Michigan) Tristan Thompson, C, age 28, 6-10/238 (Texas) Ante Zizic, C, age 22, 6-11/254 (None) To me...a Small Forward could be in order. Barrett likely gone, so Reddish or Hunter?

    Dyin' for Zion

    The Cavaliers now have the worst record in the NBA.....well...alrighty then. This tactic has worked for them before. They ended up with 4 #1 overall picks since 2000: LeBron, Kyrie, Andrew Wiggins, and somebody Bennet (was it Anthony? He played as well as singer Tony Bennett). But now, all the hype is that the next best thing since LeBron may be coming up in next year's draft. This guy Zion Williamson, freshman from Duke...who could be the next best thing since LeBron:

    Dyin' for Zion

    Pelicans #1, Memphis #2, Knicks #3, Lakers #4, Cavs #5. When I saw that both the Knicks and the Lakers were going to be in the Top 4.....I really thought that the conspiracy could have been in. I am just glad that the "small markets" New Orleans and Memphis got the Top 2 if the Cavs could not have gotten one of them. And at #5...they can still get a damned good player. Maybe that guy from Virginia. All he did was lead his team to a national Championship, which not even Zion could do. And I believe that it could happen that Anthony Davis could now stay in N.O. I think he would be stupid not to want to......unless, like LeBron, he has non-basketball reasons to want to go to LA. (But AD is a butt ugly dude with no personality...just game. He would have no business wanting the "Hollywood" lifestyle.

    Vagitron....exhibit #1 for stupid Steeler fan. Notice I said nothing about either team either sucking nor being any good. It is just about how stupid Steeler fans are. And he epitomizes that fact. The other thing is that the idiot thinks for some reason that this post was directed toward him....when there is a whole mountain of stupid steeler fans out there. That is an example of the arrogance of ignorance at work.
