Saw this this morning, terrible news.
He did a lot for the sport. I know Browns might be pissed, but he did do a lot for the NFL.

See thats what I don't understand about the cleveland fans, its not like they dont have a team? Sure their orginal team got moved, but they have a team now. Its not like the team left and now they don't have a team, ya know? With modell, didn't he leave because they wouldn't build him a better stadium? With the ravens Irsay basically lied and moved out in the middle of the night. If anyone should be pissed at anyone it should be colts (original team)/ravens fans for having a owner blatently lie. If I were browns fans, I would be mad at whoever turned down modell and the new stadium (IF that is what happened, I'm a little foggy on the whole story)....

what happened was there was a fund or option what to do, either build a new stadium or build the rock and roll hall of fame. they built the rock and roll hall of fame, model felt slighted by that and many other things. the team was also bank rupt and he had to take out a loan to pay players signing bonuses and stuff. the franchise was really fucked before they left cleveland and cleveland fans do have a right to feel pissed but it is what it is

AH I see now, so yeah your right, they did have a right to be pissed. If they were bankrupt though, there would have been more of a chance to loose the team completely though.

The NFL has asked every team to either have a moment of silence or acknowledge his passing.

As it should be...Browns WILL NOT honor Modell, and I dont blame them..


A day after the Cleveland Browns announced they would provide "appropriate recognition" on the passing of Art Modell prior to their season opener on Sunday, the team has scrapped its plans.


The decision came at the request of David Modell, stepson of Art Modell and president of the Baltimore Ravens, who wisely understood the potential for a poor reaction by Cleveland fans still upset the original incarnation of the franchise was moved to Baltimore in 1996.

"David Modell appreciated (Mike) Holmgren's offer of (a) brief P.A. read, but David knew it would not be well-received," Ravens spokesman Kevin Byrne told Mary Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer.

The Browns are the only home team in the NFL that won't honor Modell on Sunday. That striking reality provides context to a singular decision that will forever be a raw nerve for the region."
