Phil SavageBEREA -- The Browns are acknowledging that General Manager Phil Savage included a profanity in an e-mail response to an angry fan.
The exchange was first reported on the Web site deadspin.com.

"I heard something about it this morning," said coach Romeo Crennel. "We all get frustrated at times. Phil, generally, like the rest of us tries to be professional and hold it in, but sometimes some things slip out. It's unfortunate that it slipped out.

"But [during] tough times, tough things happen. I'm sure if we had to do it over again, we'd do it a little bit differently. I talked to him this morning and said we just have to hang in there, keep fighting and try to get this thing turned."

The e-mail exchange occurred during the Browns' 29-27 win in Orchard Park, N.Y., Monday night.

The fan, who appeared on WKNR radio on the "Tony Rizzo Show" without giving his real name, said he had been badgering Savage during the course of the evening.

Savage's last response was: "Go root for Buffalo. F--- you."

Savage sent the e-mail 23 minutes after the game ended.

I thought it was Pittsburgh fan who pulled a prank quite frankly..I was wrong...

What Savage did..I'm sort of in-different on it, both sides acted un-professional, though something tells me it wasn't him who sent the fan an e-mal, rather an Aide.

Phil Savage has Aides? He can't do his own work?
