Well, Art Model was no model citizen for sure. Of course, it was public money. He pretty much tried to force Cleveland to get him a new stadium and when that didn't work he looked for a city that would. I felt badly for the Browns' fans because they were extremely loyal to their team. But, at the very least, Model mentioned the team's departure where as Irsay didn't and escaped over night to Indy.
By the way, the Hartford Whalers sucked for years. The fans stopped going to games and as a result, nobody gave a shit when they went to Carolina.

If he didn't get out that night, the city would have taken his team by emminent domain the next day. That's why I said it was like hiding your car from the repo man. You don't announce what you're doing and then have him waiting there to head you off at the pass. You have to sneak.

Model owned the team. They couldn't stop him. Even the NFL couldn't stop him.

So, who else is going to one of the playoff games this weekend??

I'm going to the Chargers game, I can not wait. I am so nervous and excited!! I just so want the Chargers to win this, my hubby has been a diehard fan for 15 years, and Chargers fans that have stuck with this team through so many crappy years really deserve this win. I mean, the Pats fans have had their (multiple) day in the sun, right?

We have great seats, and I am getting ready to sceam my ass off. I will be so heartbroken if the Chargers don't win, but all the media coverage seems to be favoring the Pats (which isn't necessarily a bad thing). So, what does everyone here expect?

Is it Sunday yet???

I call the Ravens the Cleveland Browns, because that's what they are. Oh the hypocrisy. Somebody took our team. Well you took somebody else's and changed their clothes.

Irsay owned the team, too. I don't know if the laws are different in Maryland. Check out that link I posted

It has a lot more. My brother is an expert at explaining what happened, (yeah he's a big Colts fan too, we have been since the 70's) he sent it to me.

Chargers/Pats should be great! With LT, the Chargers have the advantage, but the Pats have more playoff experience. Then there's the battle of We Stole Another City's Team between the Ravens and Indy. I think the Ravens will win because their defense is better than the Colts offense right now.

Then, what exactly do you call the Cleveland Browns?

That makes no sense. The Browns are alive and well (well maybe not so well, but alive) in Cleveland....and might I add with all of their prior history and colors and so on and so on.

Apples and Oranges.....
