  1. Remember this life is short enjoy every minute and work together for common interests. Stan still is the man. This board needs to work as a unit bringing back the glory years. I had the opportunity to enjoy as it was called in the fifties "the greatest show in football" and recently the worst. But working together and being smart can restore something so special most of you never experienced.
  2. Thanks Nickers my heart was with the Browns and Stan was the MAN

    RIP Stan "Atenears" Aten

    That was a home run grand slam Ghoolie
  4. This will be lengthy but Stan deserves in his absence how his leadership was in all that happened all these years. Mind you I have mostly stopped posting on the Board for years for several reasons. Not sure if it was back in 1997 when I first talked to Stan on AO or 1995. Not sure it was 2003 when Stan kicked off the board he which kicked me off buku times only to let me back. Stan and I connected on facebook the last several years while I chose mostly to stay away from his board. He was a great smart good person, we will all miss him and his leadership here. I admired his drive to do things! We spoke many times often. Back in 1995 Kathy Hutchins and I (probably through AOL) got involved in getting the Browns name to stay in Cleveland and get an expansion team. A fellow from San Francisco named Joe was our third partner in faxing calling and doing all we could to get a new team. Kathy a member leader here on the Browns Board from the beginning passed away a few years back. That was sad. Beanpot who is a current member helped her in her last days. During those years a man named FATDAD( his name escapes me) who lived in Cleveland started an internet thingy about the Browns. I met him several times at the beach. He passed away in the 2000+ years in Myrtle Beach. The late nineties are now a blur. The early 2000's are frightening for the mayhem as Kathy would say. But Stan was part of it and we got a team and the team would start up in 1999. During the those late nineties it was all a lovefest waiting for the team to return. Along that way I interchanged with a person named Ghoolie whom I had spats constantly about everything. We threatened each other. Then comes the inaugural game in 1999 opening against the Steelers. Well the Browns lost 43-0. Before the game was a tail gate like never before!! A bunch of current members attended. Stan and Roach were two leaders at the tailgate. Zombo was their sidekick. Kathy Hutchins showed up in Orange tennis shoes. Ghoolie and I were prepared for global warfare we ended up hugging and being great friends ever since that day. But is was clear Stan was emerging as our leader. Through the years we mostly disagreed on a lot things but both decided Tim Couch was a bum. The Jacksonville bottle gate put a bad feeling in Stan's mouth he probably never got over. We would go meet at tailgates once a year when I came to a game. Sometimes having big time parties the night before or after the game. I even hosted a party for the crew in downtown Cleveland after the last game I attended which Kathy and Stan and Zombo attended as well. Stan was always the MAN. After years of amicability with Stan, I get a call from my great friend Ghoolie last Sunday am. He says I have bad news. Stan has passed. I love Stan for all he did. I regret that we also fought a lot. But we respected each other. So Stan built this thing and here it is living well I hope. Keep Stan alive by making this the greatest fan board on the planet. Please adopt his legacy make it stay alive. Place something somewhere about how he loved Mentor High School. Make sure his jersey number one of the Browns DAWG Pound cannot remember if it was Dixon or Minnifield that he adorned stays onboard here. Make sure wherever this site goes Stan is always a part of it. I suggest that for Kathy Hutchins as well as two people that made it happen the Browns and the site. They would both like that to happen! We have a team that took on great odds to return. Someday the glory will return! That will make Stan Happy! Do what you can to solace Kathy and his children while they grieve.
  5. What has the great OL AND D DONE since Zeke went out...............PPPPPPPHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHT FARTED..........Shazier was an absolute stud and so was zeke and Bosa you want more? There is nothing about me that is dumb.............it is about being smart..........Eddie George? Mikal Thomas? AJ Hawk? Zeke? all those starting lineman about 10 none on our team, all those 7-10 starting dbs everywhere, Deron Lee, Heward, Ted Ginn, and on and on it goes. How stupid can you be to ignore a hometown team that produced Laurinitis..........and all these guys never drafting a one including Big Ben who may win his third Super Bowl this year who was OHIO his whole life and a browns fab. Stupid is seeing a box of chocolates peeing in it So lets discuss winning instead of incompetence about whom is whom. I am all ears filled with 20 years of cowpoop
  6. You do not get it. Paul Brown introduced the West Coast Offense into the AAFC in 1946 they won the championship all four years. He taught it to bill walsh and now they all know it. The Browns won three NFL championships in there first six years with "Automatic Otto Graham throwing the ball and Marion Motley running over people and catching passes. Sometime check on history of the NFL and AAFC before just spouting off bs
  7. You still don't get it and never did the Browns win all those championships with defense it was "bend but don't break defense" and an offense juggernaut and that is even moreso today
  8. BrownPile you don't get it. Average score for winning team in Super Bowl is more than 31 points. That includes all those games way back when when it was D that was more important than now. BTW, how many points did the patriots score in the second half last year? You don't get it Browns management doesn't get it and as long as they pander to fans like you that don't get it they will keep losing
  9. Ghoolie and I been posting on how to getting it for going on 20 years when is this board and Browns management EVER going to get IT
  10. I hope Dorsey or somebody understands there is a school in the middle of Ohio that turns out high draft picks every year many becoming All Pros. Why do none of these players ever get drafted by the Browns? I hope that somehow someway they start understanding that players who touch the ball are the most important ingredient to winning especially the QB. There are a lot of people on the scouting staff that ends up picking bums every year. I hope they understand that no matter how good oline guys play you lose if players who touch the ball don't make plays that make line play better. The easiest thing to fix on a football team is the offensive line. The one thing that is unfixable is a lousy QB and lousy RB's. An Adrian Peterson or Ezkiel Elliott is invaluable they passed on the both. They have passed 15-20 qbs many who are or will hofers. They passed on Michael Thomas to pick Coleman. If fact they passed on so many OSU players it makes the staff look like buffoons. I hope they understand that in the current era Offense wins championships. In 1987 the worst thing happened to the Browns that led to 25 years of lousy teams. The Dawg Pound was created and focus went to defense and drafting oline guys. THE Cleveland Browns heritage is being an offensive juggernaut from 1946 to 1989. Then they threw the Brownie into lake Erie and quit drafting offensive studs and Ohio State players and been losing ever since. The Dawg Pound should be replaced the Brownie should be brought back and Offense needs to be emphasized instead of an after thought. They need to transform the Dawg Pound into Touchdown Brownie! If they keep doing the same as they have since Marty left they will get the same results.

    Well, here I am invited and played in two leagues since the beginning.............and so far not a peep from anyone. You would think whatever leagues get formed former members for many years would get invited first. Waiting for an invite
  13. Nice posts. I went to the game when Niles played Cardinal Mooney in 1963. Mooney dominated Niles and had one loss for the year. They should have won but sometimes the best team loses. Mooney was better than Niles that year. They dominated every team including Niles. I just wish one team in Ohio can become a dominant force for years like Massillon was. Where is Paul Brown a champion at every level when you need him Browns. BTW the attendance at that game was 15-20,000 at Youngstown Rayen Stadium where YSU played then.
