Wow, an all out protest for the first play. Thats real dedication to a cause. A half ass protest for a half ass team.

I think the idea is right... but you need to take it a little deeper. First 5 minutes off the game clock or first drive at least I think. Give the effect a chance to really be noticed.

I think they'd be better served (just like we would) to just refuse to buy concessions at the game. The tickets are already paid for, no concession sales takes money out of their pockets. That they'll notice.

Re: NFL Team Hires Consultant, Fans Disgusted, Threaten Action

I feel bad for Cleveland fans. They had a good team for many years in the 80's. The Marty years were good ones for them. They should have made it to the SB if it weren't for "the fumble."

Washington has much more of a winning history but Cleveland reminds me of us a little. Great memories in the 80's, early 90's, nothing much since then.

Actually, we had some winning teams under George Allen and a Super Bowl appearance. Not that you didn't know that, just thought it was worth mentioning.

Besides, the owner is not going to be swayed by this. They are STILL BUYING TICKETS. Going in late won't hurt the owner.

Re: NFL Team Hires Consultant, Fans Disgusted, Threaten Action

I hope this whole "consultant" thing isn't taking the league by storm. First us, then Cleveland...i wonder which bad team is next. Poor coaches who have to worry about a "consultant" breathing down their neck....

@skinsfanatic -- The thing is, this is something people might actually do. People who buy $9 beers are going to keep doing it. I won't give them a penny but most are not deterred. Sitting 5 minutes out is achievable for a big crowd though and it makes a public statement.

@buster -- I think it does hurt him. It adds further embarrassment and draws continued bad attention and press. Hell, his little censorship bit will probably have more fans show up just to taunt him, but a message still gets sent. In the end, we are really powerless in general, so it is all a symbolic thing anyway.

Further bad press and embarrassment can't really make a difference to Browns ownership, they should be used to it.


With that said, the Brownies shut down Jay Cutler this week!
