I never thought it could get worse...

Haslem is rookie of the year but he's got a long way to go to overtake Stepien. Way too early.

Dolan doesn't belong anywhere near this list.

Where's Modell?

Putting Haslem on this list is an insult to the awfulness of the group, he has yet to earn a coveted place on the Rushmore of Cleveland sports ineptitude, let alone to be considered the worse.

Hate to break it to you younger guys that may not remember....but nobody will beat Stepien. Being a spoiled kid uninterested in the team like Jammies doesn't even get you within eyesight, and Haslem would need far more time than he's put in to be in the same breath.

Name another owner in sports that was told "you can't trade anymore." Changed the rules for this f'ing imbecile. His draft record made Paxson look like he knew what was going on. And 100 other things not including bombarding Clevelanders with softballs dropped from the Terminal Tower.

I gotta go with Modell, he didn't just go broke owning an NFL team once, he did it TWICE. In a league that gives you license to print money, that's awfully hard to do.

If he somehow had become owner of the new Browns, he would've bankrupted this team by 2002.

Wow, that's a tough one.

Modell went broke with an NFL team and moved it to Baltimore.
Stepien lost his ass and tried to move the team to Toronto.

Modell went in debt to get Bad Moon Rison. (A player eerily similar to Haslem's minions "big" free agent signing).
Stepien spent huge sums on James Edwards and Bobby Wilkerson (who?). Stepienn mortgaged the future by dealing draft choices (which were always near the top because the team sucked) for guys like Chad Kinch and Jim Ellinghausen.

Modell fired Paul Brown.
Stepien fired Joe Tait.

I give the edge to Modell. Every fuck up he made affected a LOT more fans than anything Stepien or Gilbert could do combined.

Long-term, Modell. Stepien was pretty bad too.

Currently, Judge Smails.

Only thing that will help the Browns is this guy in the FO.
