  1. F-uck the steelers

    I've been a BROWNS fan since the late 1950s but since 1996 not just 1999 things have not gone well for maintaining and growing a fan base. Just like decades of success build loyalty decades of failure can erode it. The newer generations probably could care less if they miss a game or just say screw it and go play or watch soccer (gasp!). A football coach years back told me he was starting to lose some decent players and now with the concussion and other stuff parents are reluctant to have their kids play tackle football. Our town just did an expensive renovation of the Boardman high school stadium, it is "noticeably" empty during many games and that is going on all over. And don't think that the great NFL isn't aware of all of this......and their new billion dollar stadiums. BROWNS fans and others have reason to be worried, especially if your team is a perennial loser. Just sayin'.
  2. There is a LOT of stuff on YouTube, way more than when it started up.....I try to stay away from it because you can waste a whole bunch of time watching everything on there.! (actually it's a good site)
  3. Well I think you can live with 37 in your reduced value FL......or mine is overvalued? Darn commissioners screwing with the values.
  4. Being that I am interested in and watch WAY MORE NCAA than NFL football now I catch a lot more big games with the big teams plus all the hours on end of highlight stuff before, during and after games you can't help seeing all of the primarily TOP 25 teams. In particular Ohio State, B1G, ND, OU, good primetime match ups and occasional west coast late games......with particular interest in the QBs (naturally), OL and DL guys. Maybe the reason too why my NCAA Pick'ems are good and NFL ones stink.
  5. F-uck the steelers

    Yep, the BROWNS have been a joke in pizzburgh so long most of their fans have moved on or too young to remember the 1970s or 1980s......just the old farts like us. Long live Joe "turkey" Jones, I actually saw that game, says the geezer.
  6. F-uck the steelers

    Yeah and I got 42 on one FL and might win this week.....after one game. Shmuck pizzburgh.
  7. Exactly what I was thinking when I read this, the USA has the best medicine in the world (if you can afford it, Luck can) unless you need some non-AMA experimental or real cutting edge stuff. Luck? Maybe as a long shot reclamation project at the right price, maybe.
  8. Oh and Pittsburgh hung 40 on Tennessee last night 40-17, disgusting except I had A.Brown on my one FL team......42 points baby!
  9. I don't know about that Gip but our Gip is easily worth that in today's money. It is shocking though what professional athletes get now, are they worth it? I remember just before the Indians caught fire the entire TEAM payroll was just over $8 million and future stars like A.Belle, Thome and Lofton making at or near the league minimum of $100,000......which is fabulous money even today for us working stiffs, more like a lottery hit. Now I believe that NFL (or NCAA?) players deserve to be well compensated more than any other sport ue to the deviating injuries and possible very short careers but really Gip and Britt pulling that kind of cash, really? And yes everything in life is relative like are Stallone and Swartenagger really worth $25 million for a few months work making a movie -BUT- are the ticket prices we stiffs pay also worth it, a family of 4 going to a pro football game Cost what now? Sorry but it just rubs me wrong....occasionally that is unless I hit tonight's Mega Millions.
  10. 1st time in Cleveland

    Ames, Iowa anytime I see or hear that I remember the small NAVY pennant my dad had from there, that's where he went for his electrical training just before WWII in 1940 I believe. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ On your Cleveland trip I used to go a lot in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s but not recently so listen to the locals here and you should be fine. I hope you enjoy your stay and have a great time. GO BROWNS, win one for the fans, now that would be nice!
  11. ........ Peyton Manning may not be eligible for the NFL Hall of Fame yet, but he could still find himself in Ohio sooner rather than later. Unfortunately he will not enter among the ranks of football's elite just yet, but he could possibly be making another move after reportedly purchasing a house. In Cleveland, of all places!...... "IF" this all comes true it will be the NFL story if not the sports story of 2017-2018.......hey Cleveland in the news, again!
  12. Bernie Kosar, new book

    Got my Kosar book, not large at all will be good for some light reading one day. Nice inside covers front and back of Bernie's hand written game notes, quite an insight on what goes into a top NFL quarterback on planning for an NFL game.....nice!
  13. Who would have thought at $4.5 million/year he'd be a bargain basement pitcher. (And cookie came in 4th at 4/$22 million through 2018 and a team option for 2019, also a good deal.) Who would have thought $4.5 million would ever be a bargain.
