Default Browns for sale?

They are running a news story about it here tonight on one of the local cleveland news stations. How ironic and funny would it be if the browns were sold and moved again.

Given the sorry saga of Modell and my understanding the Browns sell out all games, I cannot imagine the league would let the Browns move (and aside from LA where would they move to?).

Jax and (in a few years once the PR hit will not be a great) the Saints are more likely candidates for a move.

With the run up in NFL franchise values this decade whoever owns the Brwons will make a tidy profit.

congrats on 2000 posts dan, I dont think they would actually move. But a new ownership group wouldnt exactly be a bad thing around here. I think the lerners are very cheap.

Soooo many opportunities to slam the Brownies...but lets be honest!...The fans there are more loyal than the bandwagon jumping Bengal fans...and for that matter the attention deficit disorder L.A. fans who cant even stay up to the beginning of the fourth quarter!!!...If someone buys the Browns...I personaly hope they stay in Cleveland.....and in our division for the 2 wins!!!

Where can I contact the Browns? I'll give them Marty for their whole team. They're stupid, they'll do it.

IMO, LA won't have a team at least for the next ten years or so -- Real Estate has gotten so ridiculous out there - and all the city officials have the complete LA "whatever" attitudes no way the Brownies move ...they are in Cleveland forever and that's a good thing for us.

They Browns need new ownership,the Lerners have no clue about how to runa football franchise.RL is more interested in his soccer team in England than in the Browns.
