Funny article. Reason #4 for remaining faithful to the Browns?

4. I have no sense of pride, logic or reality. Also, I hate myself.

He should just quit watching the NFL...and why is he so sure the Browns are going to win one someday? The last time they did, LBJ was President...in this incarnation of the Browns, they seem to get WORSE each year.

Somehow, though, you have to respect them for being loyal to their team.
He makes a good point about the Pats* fans:

2. All joking aside, I love the Browns. They cause me near-constant frustration and heartache, but that's the price you pay when you become attached to a pro sports team to which you have only an imaginary philosophical connection. I won't bail and support another team just because mine sucks, only to come back once we experience a modicum of success. What do I look like, a Patriots fan?

Quitting and switching aligences to another team is way harder than you'd think.

Why do I know this? Because I tried, oh I tried. During the season from hell that was the 2004 season I hated the team, they were a bunch of people that could give a crap about playing for pride and my HS could probably beat them. I wanted so badly to adopt the Indy Colts as my team..but just couldn't bring myself to do it. That's when it donned on me.

They are my team, they wear Orange and Brown, play in the place where I grew up and contributed so much to football. I don't care how terrible they are, how they have "ugly" uniforms and about how many Super Bowls they have won. They are my team, and those orange and brown uniforms are the most awesome ever created by mankind. We fought for them to come back after Art stole them. We are stubborn people whom will never give up on being fans no matter how tough things get, no Idiot Mini-Belichick is going to stop us from watching every sunday no matter how terrible the loss and how much Steeler fans laugh at us. In fact that just makes me even more loyal and obnoxious about my team. It's a Browns fan thing, you guys wouldn't understand.;).

The Browns will be back someday. Not sure when, but we keep the faith anyways and won't stop until the team is taken away. Until then.

HERE WE GO BROWNIES! HERE WE GO! WOOF! WOOF!

Well said my friend! I tried adopting the Carolina Panthers as my team when "The Theft" happened...I can't name 90% of their roster. I just can't get interested in a non-rival or a non-Brown. I know that the Steelers/Browns rivalry is a thing of the past...but that doesnt' stop me from wanting to see your team go down every time we face off...nor the disappointment I feel after each of the last 12 con-freaking-secutive losses to the Steelers...or my utmost loathing of the purple wearing thugs in Bitch-town.

I hear ya...all slamming on the Browns and their fans aside, it takes a lot of dedication to stick with a team through thick and thin. I have other teams that I hope do well when the Steelers and Pens are in slumps...but nothing could ever replace them.

there's noway in hell i'd root for a team who's owner isn't committed to putting a good product on the field. ( or one who condons cheating)... the fact that they will continue to start DA and not give quinn a legitamate chance to win the job because they don't want to pay him the bonus money is total bullshit. why in the hell did they draft him ??? :doh:

i'm not really much of a baseball fan, but if someone asks, i'd tell them i'm a pirates fan, but the truth of it is i could get free pirates tickets just about anytime i want them (corperate seats) but i just can't see wasting my time and supporting a team owned by an owner who could care less if they win or not...:noidea:

Pittsburgh: America's crotch. Literally one of the worst cities on the planet. Full of toothless mountain people. Looks from above as if someone decided, "You know what I'm going to do? Cut out a huge chunk of one of the worst sections of Eastern Europe and drop it in the middle of Pennsylvanian Appalachia." At the end of the day, the Cleveland Browns suck, but at least we're not from Pittsburgh.

..... in the immortal words of Myron Cope

"..... Cleveland is the only place in America, where when you see a couple, walking down the street carrying their groceries.....

Every time I am almost feeling bad for bad for Browns fans....one of them says something to me that reminds me why I hate them.
