Just starting... clearly the producers were big fans of the CNN Cold War series.

I'm not gonna say Earnest Byner just made me cry, but it did get a little dusty in here for a few minutes.

If there was real world scenario that would be the equivalent of having a root canal while your eyes were being gouged out all while being probed by aliens- watching this show may be it.

You know how it goes, Belichick builds the team from the ground up after Bernie's team got too old, stocks talent, grows together- back when coaches wouldn't get run after 2-3 losing years, goes to the playoffs, poised to take the next step and then the bomb goes off. All involved say that if the Browns stayed put, they would of won a Super Bowl. Pure torture. I'll DVR it. :pb:

All that really did for me was to reinforce that every time I say I don't care any more or fuck those guys, I'm lying to myself.

God, I wish this prison sentence would end.

Cleveland 95 should have been a 30 for 30. I hate ESPN , but a 30for30 with a professional director (preferably someone from Cleveland) would have done this justice. Fact is NFL films has been a sub par product ever the NFL network started, and Steve Sabol took a step back due to health reasons.

If any of our three crappy teams were ever to win a championship, there will be a whole miniseries on HBO or ESPN about TCE

I was a bit disappointed with the final product. I was hoping it'd be a bit more Cleveland-centric rather than Belichick-centric. Probably for the best. Didn't even have to break out the box of tissues......the shirt sleeve easily took care of what few tears there were.

That was an hour long description of the greatness of Belichick, with some Cleveland notes sprinkled in.

Yep.

It wasn't meant to be about Cleveland per se, but that's where the incident took place.

It was about Cleveland and how the rug got pulled out from under us. I mean, imagine that staff all here together for five years...

It was hard to watch. And it makes this bunch of circus clowns even harder to watch, remembering how close we came. :gah:

Yup, I have no problem with it. The story they wanted to tell was about Belicheck and the staff that was assembled there. And it's a worthwhile story for someone to tell. The fact that it happened in Cleveland, with our history, just makes the story tragic and that much more interesting.

The one complaint I have is the timing.

It should have been done earlier, so Art Modell would have to watch it.

Would it really have bothered him? In B-more he got his money, his new stadium, his Super Bowl trophy and his status as the man who brought football back to Maryland. He'll be revered there long after we're all gone.
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

Like the Grinch who stole Christmas (showing my age), deep down inside he regretted it went down the way it did.

I wonder what Michael White thought when he saw it. Probably "Whew!!! They didn't bring up my shenanigans this time."
