I took my fingers to school but they never learned to spell.

The owners probably love him because he did make big contributions to negotiating the initial network TV deals, Baltimore media loves him for screwing Cleveland after Irsay screwed Baltimore, and Jim Brown loves him for running Paul Brown out of Cleveland.

As for everyone else, Modell is a symbol of the quest for the $$ over anything else (latest example being the World Series schedule forcing the Rockies to sit for 8 days and potentially going into November for TV ratings) that is a cancer eating away at sports. But Al Davis sued the league repeatedly and got in, so I guess Modell has a shot.

You know that Modell was a big reason the Steelers moved to the AFC

All is well and I know that the browns have a very loyal fan base and although you feel you may be able to say things and claim ADD, that only goes so far but being so close to ocho stinko and cinci, it may actually go a little farther.

But I digress, here's to the most loyal fans in the NFL

Art Modell could never fit in the HOF, that fat load. Can you tell I'm not overly fond of him?

What he did to the Browns fans was just plain cruel and I've never forgotten it.

The only hall he deserves entry into is the Hall of Shame.

What Momoneydell did to Cleveland should be a dealbreaker.

What was the aprt about moving us to the AFC? From what I understand Rozelle drew the divisional alignment out of a hat, but I've never heard what the other possible alignments were.

That is one of the good things that Modell did. When the AFL merged with the NFL, the NFL had 16 teams and the AFL only had 10. Art Modell was good friends with Art Rooney, and he convinced him and the owner of the Colts to make the switch to balance the league out. It was a really big deal because most people still thought the AFL was a joke. The move legitimized the AFL (now the AFC).

SO the Colts run to Indy in the dark of the night, and Satan takes his team to Baltimore. Thus we now have the rest of the story.

Art Modell is a douchebag bastard that shouldn't be allowed in the HoF as a fan, much less inducted into membership.

And every single Baltimore Ravens fan that has EVER bitched about the Colts moving to Indianapolis is a hypocrite.

If Modell does get inducted, at least I can take solice in the fact that he will be BOOED by anyone there not wearing Ratbird purple. It'll be the first time I have ever witnessed am inductee showed with boos rather than cheers.
