I don’t remember there being a lot of criticism for the Cleveland Indians when they traded Milton Bradley following an altercation with manager Eric Wedge in 2004. Maybe it is just a lack of knowledge on my part, but I don’t remember reading any critical words and I don’t remember any of my friends who
Gary Sheffield is an angry gentleman. Well, let’s just say he is an angry man. After his overreactions this weekend, which led to a benches clearing brawl, Sheffield was still angry. “He’ll get taken care of, trust me,” Sheffield said. “If you take a cheap shot at me, I’ll never forget it. I won’t forget
Last week Rock and I exchanged way too many emails talking about the upcoming Cavaliers season. One would have thought that maybe Rock and I should have been spending our time talking about the Browns, but that just goes to show just how prescient we are. Why waste your time talking about a listless football
In the wake of my previous post from this morning, there is now a bit of interesting rumor and speculation at Mike Florio’s wonderful ProFootballTalk.com. A league source tells us that there’s talk of trouble between Browns G.M. Phil Savage and members of the coaching staff in the wake of Savage’s characterization of Sunday night’s
It shouldn’t have been much of a surprise when the power flickered on and off eleven different times on Sunday at five minutes to Browns kickoff against the Steelers. After the previous night of “football” against the USC Trojans on Saturday night, I probably should have seen the power outage as an omen that I
After last night’s miserable failure of a game against USC, I am having trouble coming to any kind of cohesive storyline. The failures were numerous. There is no focal point. As a result, I am going with bullet points. Hopefully this will be cathartic enough that I will feel better, but somehow I doubt it.
Sorry for the long quote, but this is a pretty funny one. Apparently some crank callers got through on a conference call with Pete Carroll this week. Doug Lesmerisis writes: About 20 minutes into a call with Carroll, someone who indentified himself as associated with a fake website asked Carroll in a garbled, if almost
The Ohio State Buckeyes are kind of like Duke basketball, and maybe the New York Yankees. As Ohioans or fans of the Buckeyes it might be tough to admit, but the proof is out there. After dropping the last two national championship games to Florida and LSU, it was impossible not to hear the celebration
So, I realize that the title of this post is really just a bait and switch. I am not even going to sit here and debate this. I just wanted to point out what dummies there are among us Browns fans. It is time to eat our own before they all make us look bad.
Ohio State might be missing Beanie Wells today, but the lack of performance from the Ohio State offensive line makes it unlikely that even a completely healthy Wells would be able to do much to help. Ohio University put together a 72-yard drive in the first half to take the lead 7-3. On that drive,
I know it is tempting (especially in Cleveland) to get angry with athletes who leave for greener pastures and bigger paychecks. I am guilty of getting angry about it sometimes too. In his latest opinion column, Bill Livingston (sarcastically) analyzes the recent newspaper advertisement that CC Sabathia took out to thank the fans of Cleveland.
As everyone watched and let out The Gasp Heard ‘Round the State, panic started to set in with one very important person that almost nobody was thinking about. “Who?” you ask. None other than Beanie Wells’ mom. You think you were nervous, Buckeyes fans? Paulette Wells spent the weekend “like a person jumping out of
Every season in pro sports is a roller coaster, regardless of what sport you are watching. We know this as much as any fan base in the country. There is a reason that this site is called Waiting For Next Year, right? Well, this year’s Indians squad squandered every bit of expectations that we might
