Don't really know all that much about the man but I'm sure he contributed to the success of the NFL and for that I'm grateful. RIP Mr. Modell and condolenses to your family.

I saw Schefty say on ESPN that Monday Night Football was all Art Modells idea, that was one heck of a good idea. BTW Adam Schefter, that dude just straight brings it, what a journalist.

Sadly he's mostly remembered for leaving Cleveland. One of the pioneers of the NFL.

Yes, the NFL wouldn't be the NFL we know today without this man.

Rest in Peace.

I'm sure the Browns fans will miss him as much as the Colts fans miss Robert Irsay.

You want to know who Art Modell was? They canceled the Browns "moment of silence" at the request of Modell's family at the start of today's game because the family knew the Browns fans were going to tap dance on his grave on national TV. Honestly I suspect they will do their own Fan organized "showing of respect" all the same.

Allow me to entertain the politically incorrect view and put my self in the shoes of long suffering Browns fans. It's not so much that I am not big on polite respect for someone just because they died while also being a public figure. It's just that I can't pretend to care about some uber rich older person I don't actually know, who made it to a ripe old age, while enjoying a very long life of luxury and yes GREED at the expense of MILLIONS OF Rabid DIED HARD BROWNS FANS.

It's hard for skins fans to relate, but imagine if Snyder had been a cheap ass instead of well meaning but foolish; and for 30 MORE YEARS than he's owned the team currently; he runs the Skins like a cash cow with NO INTENTION OF COMPETING at a high level; making bad move after bad move (which is basically what he;s done for 13 years), even when occasionally accidentally being better... Culminating in moving the Skins to a city that is historically a rival of Washington Sports, then all of a sudden the franchise starts doing things right, because Snyder knows he wont get away with milking the new market.

I know most of you can't relate, it's impossible to actually understand decades of mostly pure suckitude, being the laughing stock of the NFL, and yet STILL BEING INSANELY DIE HARD FANS, only to be rewarded for your loyalty by watching your former franchise in a rival town become good.

It's like watching the con man who scammed your grammy's life savings drive off into the sunset with his middle finger pointing at you, And he's driving the amazing classic car Gramms kept for you in her garage that you were supposed to inherit.

When the Con man accidentally gets T-boned just as he goes over the horizon and dies in the wreck: polite respect for the recently departed is not on the slate. Pointing out that he once did something impactfull (which anyone could have thought of frankly) decades before becoming a heinous greedy douche bag doesn't change the fact that for SOME PEOPLE, fist pumps and high fives and return middle fingers are perfectly justified.

wow, just a little over the top.Fans didn't like him fine it's their right but the NFL is a business and he was a businessman and he did what was right for himself and his family, and in the end helped the NFL to become what it is today.

The Browns fans still got their team, so they need to get over it. It is not like they went years without a team like Baltimore. I don't think they have to praise Modell, but they don't have to be a$$holes about it. They made their point when he was alive (when it mattered), now they just need to get the F over it.
