Thoughts on Art Modell
I don’t have much to say about this. I’ve always been a huge Browns fan and I was a big supporter of Art Modell. He loved Cleveland and said he’d never move the team. Then he ripped out the heart of every Browns fan. It’s a permanent stain on his legacy and he shouldn’t be in the Hall of Fame.
Others have had much more to say. Here are links to some great articles from Jeff Passan and Joe Posnanski, who both grew up as Browns fans.
Mary Kay Cabot has a great article on how Modell’s decision haunted him for the rest of his life. I’m not surprised, and frankly he deserved that. But the article offers some interesting insight on how Modell was nudged and possibly pushed into this tragic decision by a nagging wife. It’s pathetic just thinking about it. Tony Grossi also offers great insight in his article about Modell’s passing.
