The new Cleveland of sports.
Exactly just said on snother thread
I lived in the ATL for 23 years. Nothing has changed with that team. They always crap their pants in the big game. Up 17-0 and the niners come back. I was rooting to see a new Super Bowl Champ.
I lived there for +5 years as I went to school there. The team is garbage and I knew they would FIND a way to lose.
I would like to visit and pick up some wings from Dugans?

cleveland would love to just have a team finish over .500 right now.
hahahahahahahahahaha. As a Cleveland fan it is not even close!!!!
Bucknasty, I'd really like some Varsity food right now. It's greasy as heck but them onion rings are awesome.
Shat, I'm so hungry........I'd take a 12 pack of Crystals with cheese.
Don't do that to yourself. I used to like Varsity and then ate at the one in Alpharetta. I realized how much I didn't like Varsity and only ate at the one downtown due to it bring a tourist attraction.
They do have Gladis Knights chicken as waffles. That's some good eats right there.
We got some good stuff in Cleveland too though, but Gladis' place I'll always remember.

The difference is Cleveland fans care.
ehhh that wont be lasting much longer. im a die hard fan of cleveland and im starting to not give a rats ass. for too long ive been a true fan, time for these teams to literally win me back.
They're getting there.
But it's still hard to compare a city that hasn't won a major championship in 20 years vs one that hasn't done so in nearly 50.
Clearly if the Falcons go to an NFC title game again next year and blow it in the same manner, they will for certain be the equivalent of the Browns of the late '80s.
Beyond any of that, Atlanta is similar to L.A. (except for the Lakers) in that if their sports teams aren't winning big, all is still well in the city. Atlanta, like L.A. and Miami prides itself on its night life, tradition, culture its celebrities and booming economy. Cleveland however doesn't have that option unfortunately.
It's a city looking for any bit of hope it can find--esp since a good many of its former residents now reside in Georgia's capital city. Which perhaps is another reason why fans down there don't take it as hard whenever they don't win a championship: because many of its residents are transplants who root for their native-born teams (Browns, Bears, Giants, Eagles, Rams, Bengals etc).
problem with this argument of the sexy night life is that cities like green bay, pitt, indy, baltimore, etc dont have sexy night lifes and win. the nba is really the only league where a sexy night life means anything, and yet there's teams like okc and san antonio who are winners. it's not clevelands fault they had a superstar unwilling to do things on his own. baseball it's all about $$$$ and simply if you have an owner willing to spend you can win (see the detroit tigers, think any of those guys really moved to detroit for it's night life?).
