Burial at Lake IMO
Latest I hear is the NFL is forcing it upon Cleveland. all home teams this week will have some sort of tribute.
Yeah it's not so much the Browns, the NFL is mandating that every team "acknowledge" his passing. At least there's a lot of room for interpretation as to what "acknowledge" is. The NFL got theirs today though, they just overturned by appeal the suspensions in bounty-gate

Do they have to honor Bin Laden, Hitler and Satan as well?
The Browns attempting to hold a moment of silence would only open the wrong kind of national news or make it a spectacle to the city of Cleveland.. There's just nothing the Browns or Browns fans would gain from that happening...

When former Cleveland Browns greats like Jim Brown come out and acknowledge that Modell is despised in Cleveland, maybe the NFL should rethink having any tribute to him in Cleveland.
If the NFL is forcing their hands...I hope the fans make it count and embarrass the NFL.
They should do it 30 seconds after they open the gates. Do the moment of silence to empty seats.
Maybe we should all be forced to respect and remember guys who pickpocket us or break into our homes

Obviously the NFL doesn't have a clue how much hurt, betrayal and anger the Browns fans felt and continue to feel over Modell's pulling out of Cleveland. I don't know how the fans will react in Cleveland, but if they show no respect, I certainly understand and personally think the NFL should just let it slide as far as Cleveland is concerned.
IF they do a moment of silence, booing is not enough.
I would try to get a F*** Modell chant going.
only if they owned an nfl team
Satan did own one...he just went home
Full disclosure here. Im a Browns fan and this makes me actually want to watch the game Sunday! Art hanging from the goal post and TR is all i need to watch one game this year. Heres to heavy drinkin saturday and sunday!
The Browns should also pay tribute to the miserable politicians who had their part in the move as well, just as fitting.
We Browns fans threw bottles at a game. Now grenades if this happens.
As a kid I remember living a dying both sat and sun with my bucks and browns. There is no sob story about how he needed a new stadium that justified moving one of the top five storied franchises in NFL history. Art made a fatal calculated mistake and I will never forgive him for the years that I had spend without my Browns playing on Sunday afternoons. Thoughts and prayers to the family of the models, but I shed no tears for Art's passing.
I think the whole nation will have there eye's on Cleveland for this.
