During the contest, the Browns will create iconic moments at key intervals, and as a result fans will have another opportunity to engage with their team.


Wiener dogs clearly = iconic moments.

I haven't heard back about my e-mail suggestion that at pre-game of the Suckler game the Browns stage a rap battle with Machine Gun Kelly vs Mac Milller MC'd by Mike Polk and Krazy Bone but I'm sure its under consideration.

I hope someone in this new regime had the wherewithal to ensure the ceremonial flags are smaller this year.

Someone could get caught under one of those.

That'll cost too much money, they'll just provide handwritten maps of the field for pre game

Exactly.

When you're leaving at 3pm, walking head down, embarrassed, kicking fucking rocks week after week, for 10-14 years, you can shove the game day experience up your ass.

Dude, if slutty cheerleaders are the key for you, you can certainly access them doing more than cheering with the excellent new wifi connection.

If that's what you need, just watch the game at a strip club, it will be cheaper, there might be a meat tray, and you can play Keno !

My final experience at the FOS was a few years back at one of the Steeler games. I purchased tickets online from the CB website. When I get there I am accosted by the black jacket mob and told my tickets are counterfeit. Numerous letters and e-mails to that garbage organization went unanswered. I will NEVER step foot in there again. Hey Browns! GFY on your gameday experience.

So we're gonna get the Flying J truck stop game experience? Minus the glory-holes of course. Gotta stay classy.

I just hope they have one of those claw machines at the gate. So every fan can literally feel what it's like to watch victory slip through ones fingers.

I've got two suggestions if they want to get people into the stadium earlier.

1. Live music on the field.

2. Lower the beer/food prices to a third of their normal cost until 10 minutes before kickoff. Then you can jack them back up.

Otherwise there's nothing that will pry people away from their tailgating, which generally features music and cheap beer/food.

I think #2 would work.

But there is live music in many lots, they tried it with GE Smith for a couple years to no great success and, before you say it was GE Smith, you're not going to get a ton of people there early to see any given live band as demographics and tastes probably are too diversified.

Now, $2 domestic 12oz drafts and $2 hot dogs from time gates open until 12:45 might be incentive for many.

Sorry but live music at the stadium blows, the genre or the band doesn't make a bit of difference either. Not the same as music while tailgating either.

Plus with Wyatt Earp as commissioner and what the NFL wants as an image you'll never see beer that cheap. You want fans there from start to finish then put a team on the field that can start & finish.

I've long thought they need to try to get the Dawg Pound to feel like the real Dawg Pound. I'd like to see them add a few rows of seating to get that section closer to the playing field. I'm sure there are NFL regulations, but it sure seems that the fans at CBS are further from the action than at other places (see: Kansas City).

Also, a hill with a chain-link fence wouldnt be bad :)

The only way to get more people into the stadium early would be for the Browns to force the city to start strictly enforcing open container laws.

You're probably right. I suppose speaker music would be fine, just so long as there's something going on music-wise in the background.

If the beers were $2, I'd certainly try the "Tailgating in the Stadium" experience.

That wouldn't do shit as far as getting people in the stadium. There's no way the police force has the volume to be checking/ticketing every person that has a red solo cup, and if they kill tailgating people will just drink at home/bars and show up even later.

Oh, I'm aware that it would never happen. Just that it might work if they tried it. Which they never will (makes no sense since you'll still make a profit on $2 a beer that you won't make if they're drinking in the muni lot, but whateva).

I'll say this: when youngest and I went to Crew game in Columbus a couple weeks ago they had a band on a stage in the common area and they had $1 Bud Light drafts from the time the gates opened until kickoff. They also had a ton (which shocked me somewhat) of tailgaters who came in when the gates opened for the beers, band and $1 brats. I might add they had 19,700 people there that night.

Only bad part of the Crew experience for me was the fact their colors are gold and black. It took getting used to to not want to knee drop every damn person there and I never got used to pulling for the guys in the gold and black.

Still seems foreign to me. No soccer pun intended.

Why? It's not like you aren't going to rinse it out with water after it gets passed down to you. Or if you are out of water at least give it a good shake. And I'm sure they'd clean all of them after every game no matter how many times they were used.

It's the perfect plan. What are the 3 things that football fans love more than anything in the world? They love beer, loud noises, and sticking their wieners into things. We already have the beer and the loud music. We just need to finish off the trifecta.

Trust me, I've thought about this a lot. Tell me I'm wrong.

Opening Day pre-game video shows low lights from 95 including the Glendenning presser. Shows Art's quotes. Shows years of futility e.g. Couch getting sacked, Couch crying, Q dropping balls, Stoneytyme, Butch quotes about fighting guts out, Charlie looking vapid, DA threatening the fan base, y'all get the idea.

Then cut to video of Charles Ramsey saying about how he freed Amanda Berry and then camera cuts LIVE to Charles Ramsay opening a screen door from the locker room with CPD cops and the team runs out !!!

Don't think the organization could afford the fee for a Ramsey appearance, he's requesting mad coin and cheeseburgers.

I might pose as a testicular cancer survivor an dthen after I mak ethe run at a HS game I'm gonna shock the world and expose my junk and my 2 prisinte nuts at the crowd and then maybe it'll stop.

Paging Messers Parker and Stone, white courtesy phone, stat.

Can we get that guy in Muni that allegedly tackled Jet's fan kid involved? cancer kids vs drunks red rover?


I'm pretty sure they saw all the press the little kid that named his cancer "Michigan" and beat it got and decided to find their own cancer story.

That was all fuzzy and stuff but man, much like the wave, it was fresh once and then that's enough.

Good tiwst by the Huskers since they have no rivals thatnks to their conference moves.

But repeating it is just blech in a smarmy make a wish sense.

I think what the Nebraska team did for that little kid was a cool thing...it was in their spring game, and it was all based on giving the kid a huge thrill in his life...a life that has held a lot of misery and pain for him.

What it was NOT was a publicity stunt. It was covered by the media because it was a cool thing...it was not staged for cameras.

I'm not comfortable with many other "events" of this type, because they seem bizarrely exploitative of the (insert one: handicapped person...cancer survivor...terminally ill patient) object of attention. They are staged more for the "feel good" self-congratulation it supplies to the stagers, and less for the enjoyment/thrill of the individual being "celebrated".

We know from listening to what these patients and/or disabled people tell us that they want nothing more than to be treated as we would treat anyone else...spoken to like we would speak to anyone else...not condescended to...not patronized.

I'm not sure where exactly the line is between one type of celebration and the other...but I'm convinced there is one.

Good luck finding the guy, he probably doesn't even know it was him.
It's only progress if you eventually get somewhere.

Not to sure about this. I see the reason for doing it as you say it is, but for the kid and his family...I am pretty sure the kid in Cleveland got every bit the joy of doing the kid in Nebraska did. Which at the end of the day is exactly what matters. The kid getting that moment could care less about the hidden reasons the moment happened, and either do I.

The thing that makes Cleveland unique is that you could give a sick elementary school kid the ball in a real game and he'd strike paydirt.

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

Young Money rappers are the biggest group of frauds this side of Sarah Phillips.

They are the hip-hop equivalent of Daugherty, Nickelback and any number of shit by the numbers Rock bands.
