I want the Rats to beat the Colts, just like they beat the Patriots. I have my reasons for disliking all three of those teams, but at least the Rats play physical football the way I like it.

Passionate hate. Simply because of their whining.

But I have to respect the way they play.

I was hoping I'd be able to call the BULLSHIT flag on someone. The reason why Modell left was because his other business deals were in the red and he was hoping that the Browns would make enough to cover his losses elsewhere. While he was always in the positive, it wasn't enough. He moved to Baltimore hoping he'd get better results...and it proved not enough there either.

The Stadium was always sold out and it was one of THE toughest stadiums to play in if you were an opponent. The Dawg Pound was always full of RABID fans who made life hell for opposing players.

Despite 10 years of crap, we still sell the stadium out. What's that say about our fanbase? It's not like we're the Cincy Bengals who struggle to sell out a playoff game. Go take your feeble argument elsewhere junior, because you are utterly clueless on what it's like to be a Browns fan.

Agreed...and I was just going to post this similar thought. As much as Steelers fans hated Browns fans, it's stupid to assume that lack of fan support is why the Browns relocated. Art Modell being a total moron is why the Browns relocated.

It was my understanding that it basically happened because a good chunk of the revenue that his company made from the stadium came from Indians games, and he was unwilling to share the revenues with their owners. The Indians decided to build their own stadium and Modell lost a lot of money because of it. He presented a ballot issue to get tax money for a new stadium and then announced he was going to move the team instead. The tax payers approved the issue on ballot for the new stadium, but essentially did nothing but pay for the old one to be torn down.

All I know is if I were a Browns fan I'd be more than irate. What Modell did to Browns fans and the city is inexcusable.

As far as the Ravens go...it's passionate hate. I respect some of their players, but in general I feel they can suck a big one.

At least they took it to the Pats in the luckiest game in the last few seasons. Where is Mr. Patriot at?

We'll have to agree to disagree. While the ratbirds players are whiners, they definitely are not as arrogant and pompous (read our shite doesn't stink) as those cheaters up north (imo).

As much as I can't stand the ratbirds, at least they do play football the way it's suppose to be played and they don't look to "protect" their players (ala marsha).

I'm sure we can both agree that this sunday we'll be cheering on the colts!
