  3. Here is the list of acts that are to be inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame: They are Depeche Mode, The Doobie Brothers, Whitney Houston, Nine Inch Nails, The Notorious B.I.G. T-Rex. Jon Landau and Irving Azoff are the recipients of the Ahmet Ertegun Award. I am highly ambivalent about this group. How is Depeche Mode more deserving than a number of other 80s acts (that I think were better) like Culture Club, Tears for Fears, others. T-Rex was highly mediocre in my opinion. Them in lieu of like Jethro Tull, Procul Harum? And others...laughable. Whitney I get. In the genre of Pop goddesses, she may be more deserving that Mariah Carey, Celine Dion I will defer on the rap artists. Notorious BIG is a BIG name anyway... Nine Inch Nails? Also a big name in that genre, whatever that genre is (punk, rock, alt, grunge,...like Green Day, I am not sure). Going back to pull in the Doobie Brothers? I guess....they had a lot of hit songs and were a good band. Not at the top of their era, but good.

    Roll Call

    Just thought I would put this here to see the diversity of Browns fans on this board....geographic wise. Just call out the city and State where you are from (no further personal info needed) ( I know some of this is in the profile). I suspect there may be more from outside NE Ohio than in NEO. I will start: "From" Norton, Ohio....now live in neighboring Wadsworth Oh. And just to make this more interesting: Also from Norton: Sandra Hubby, Playmate From Wadsworth: Angie Everhart

    why I hope it's not Stefansky....

    Hey. He doesn’t make me nervous. I was just talking about his past because someone else brought it up. And you are right I never heard of him but I did look him up later. And I wasn’t correcting you I was simply saying that I personally had not heard or remembered him. When others talked about him so like I said I looked him up Period. And I only brought him up because someone else seem to be concerned about the fact that we let him go

    Injuries count. If Sam Bowie and Greg Oden had not been injured we may have counted them among the great NBA centers of all time. We don't. If Bo Jackson had not hurt his hip? If Joe Charboneau had not hurt his back? If if if.
  9. For now, yes. After next CBA? It shouldn't be. All things considered.
  10. 95% of NFL players smoke marijuana And TNBT means: T'ain't No Big Ting. Maximum Punishment is $150 fine. (plus potential license suspension.....which is a far worse punishment than the fine) I have meted out hundreds of sentences for this. The speeding charge could actually carry a harsher penalty. (other than the suspension)
  11. For more on the big stall see the link... That link provided NO information on why it is stalled whatsoever, nor on what may be happening soon. What we have is pile of feckless fucking legislatures more worried about who gets the money than about the status of the law: The big difference between the two bills likely would matter little to the people placing bets. The Ohio Lottery would oversee the sports bets under a plan offered up by Reps. Dave Greenspan, Republican of Westlake, and Brigid Kelly, Democrat of Cincinnati. The Ohio Casino Control Commission would regulate sports wagering under the plan from Sens. John Eklund, Republican from Chardon, and Sean O'Brien, Democrat from near Warren.

    Here is todays Survey. A bit different. I am going to list a variety of Sports. You tell us how much interest you have in each sport on a scale of 0-10, with 10 being of the highest interest and 0 being, well -0- interest. Start with the big ones: NFL Football: College Football: Major League Baseball NBA Basketball: College Basketball: WNBA: Women's college basketball NHL hockey MLS/Premier League/World Cup soccer Golf Tennis Winter Olympics Sports (break it down if you wish) Summer Olympics Sports (break it down if you wish) NASCAR/Indy/Formula One auto racing Boxing UFC Cricket College/High School Wrestling (real wrestling) Bowling Cue Sports: Pool/Billiards/Snooker LaCrosse Horse Racing Rugby Rodeo Surfing Ultimate Frisbee eSports Did I miss anything. (Fake wrestling is not a sport any more than ballroom dancing)

    He was not a girl but a grown man. But 90 is likely high....but he was very fast. And thanks for the tip on the leg slap.

    Radio is saying that Paton is pulling out of consideration for the GM job. Apparently there were issues about the "Power structure" and the division of labor that he was not comfortable with. https://www.cleveland.com/browns/2020/01/george-paton-takes-himself-out-of-running-for-browns-gm-source-says-andrew-berry-the-leading-candidate.html So, I have no clue what this means. Speculation: A. He knew that working for Jimmy would just be a FUBAR situation all around, because JH wants to be a control freak....or Paton knew that trying to work with him would be chaotic. B. He knew that the Browns had their hearts set on Andrew Berry. C. He was being told that Elliot Wolf and Alonzo Highsmith were going to have certain jobs....and he didn't like being dictated to. Whatever it is, it is the Haslams being being fucked up bosses with no clue. Sound about right?
  15. If you have never smoked pot...how is it that you know how a conversation between two pot smokers would go?

    Wait a minute, didn’t DePodesta say Carson Wentz wasn’t a top 20 QB? All things considered, I am not sure that Depo was wrong on Wentz.

    Every HC or OC's main job is to get the most out of their starting QB. Nothing new or enlightening about that.

    This Week in the NFL Playoffs

    OK Rip Van Winkle. Callahan is signed as Browns OL coach. Kubiak will not be coming here, signed as OC with Minn. Woods looks like the choice for DC, but they likely have to wait after he is done with the Super Bowl. And no GM/DPP has yet been hired.

    So? WTF is going on? Paton has been in twice for interviews. Berry has been in. Monti WTFever has been in, it seems like weeks ago. Are the Browns waiting on another name to surface? If so, Who? Are they considering someone who is still working with the 2 SuperBowl teams? Are they just taking 3 days to work out contract terms? Does anyone have a clue? As it certainly seems like the Browns do not. (but I guess that would be typical Haslam) Is Depo on vacation and are they waiting for him to come back?

    Survey Thursday January 22

    When I was growing up, my next door neighbor, who later became Chief of Police in Barberton, was a fastpitch softball pitcher. He could hurl a softball, underhand, at close to 90 MPH. He was later killed in a motorcycle accident. This was in the 80s. Here he was, a Chief of Police, and he was not wearing a helmet riding his motorbike. He had this unusual deal that when he pitched the ball, underhand remember, he would slap the side of his leg with the hand that held the ball in. Not sure why that was done, but he still threw the thing fast as hell.
  21. By the time Super Bowl 55 comes around, we should have legalized sports gambling in Ohio, shouldn't we? Latest report as of this month: Still under consideration by legislature There are two warring bills with a fight over who would run a sports betting enterprise in the state.
  22. I believe, with this loss, the Browns are mathematically eliminated. Even with their loss, the Titans worst record can be 8-8. The best the Browns can be is 8-8. The Tits hold the head to head tie breaker. Maybe, if, somehow, there were a 3 way tie or something they could still have a chance....but who can count on that. Ergo....time for draft talk. Right? Too early? As things stand now, the Browns would draft basically right in the middle: #14. Besides better coaching...better coaching...and better coaching what are the Browns most pressing personnel needs to go after in FA or the Draft?
