I mean, the Cleveland Fan does win this one.
"Yoni" was the Epic Saints fan who lost it, along with his shirt, when the Saints failed miserably two years ago against Minnesota. He was not available this year so we ["We?"--Ed.] have missed his reaction to the "No Call" in a certain NFC Championship. Nice that he was able to express his opinion on that.

Jay Feely reports the NFL told Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry to change their shoes at halftime or they won’t be allowed to play.

Browns in a nutshell this year

Reported as "clown cleats", but that's the Joker mask from The Dark Knight, and as originated in the 1966 Batman series when The Joker first appears.

Sort of sums up this year's Browns.

Oh, and they waived Whitehead after his racist rant on Twitter.

Our team left us for someone else.

Then we got another but it isn’t the same.

All we look forward to is drinking beer on Sundays but now our dog has died.

The Browns are literally a country song.

Tony Grossi has been suspended after apparently calling Baker Mayfield a “f***ing midget” during a show on ESPN Cleveland WKNR.

Grossi made the comment while the mics were still hot during a discussion about NFL quarterbacks, according to bustedcoverage.com.

Good Karma Brands issued a statement Tuesday about the incident.

“The term Tony used is a derogatory slur to describe Little People. Good Karma Brands will not tolerate derogatory language that demeans others or groups of people,” the company said Tuesday in a media release.

All jokes aside, it is not bad other than there is nothing about it that says "LA Rams."

A lot of folks want it to be The Cleveland Guardians, named after the art deco statuary on the Hope Memorial Bridge. But someone pointed out that the sculptor had done a bas-relief depicting a white guy taking a sword to a Native American so that won't work.

The should call the team "The Cleveland Wahoos" and have done with it, although The Cleveland Flats would work too.

Following the Indians' 8-6 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates -- which when coupled with the Chicago White Sox' 10-8 loss to the Chicago Cubs clinched the No. 4 seed in the American League for Cleveland -- team president Chris Antonetti confirmed to reporters that Francona won't return to the team for the postseason.

"Tito continues his recovery but is not yet physically able to manage the team," Antonetti said.

The 61-year-old Francona hasn't managed the Indians since Aug. 16 and has been dealing with gastrointestinal issues since Spring Training. In August, Francona underwent a procedure to address a blood clotting issue.

LSU Football Self-Imposes Penalties, Bans Odell Beckham Jr. from Facilities for Two Years
LSU is self-imposing penalties for rules violations and hoping the NCAA doesn’t levy more.

The school is docking itself eight football scholarships over a two-year period and reducing recruiting visits, evaluations and communication after a nearly two-year investigation uncovered booster payments to the father of a football player, sources tell Sports Illustrated. The school is banning from its facilities for two years ex-LSU receiver and current NFL star Odell Beckham Jr., who distributed $2,000 worth of $100 bills during a wild scene that unfolded on the field following LSU’s win over Clemson in the national championship game in the New Orleans Superdome.

Contacted this week about the news, LSU officials sent to SI a statement on Wednesday.

“LSU has worked proactively and in cooperation with the NCAA to identify and self-report any violations that occurred within our football program," Robert Munson, LSU Senior Associate Athletic Director, said in the statement. "We believe these self-imposed penalties are appropriate and we will continue to coordinate and cooperate with the NCAA on this matter.”
