Today's rant pertaining to the Main Stream Media is focused on the tremendous amount of media attention in Northern Ohio on the worst franchise in professional sports. Whether it be television or the local papers, it is all about the Browns, Browns and more Browns. And remember, this is August and pre-season football. January and again no playoffs? Don't matter; more Browns coverage. Sickingly, this coverage is all about how the players simply LOVE their NEW coach, his brains, enthusiasm, and knowledge of the game. Along with this vomit-inducing tripe we are also bombarded with stories about three time suspended bad boy, recreational and addicted weed smoker Josh "Rickie Williams' Gordon. The media touts how he has been reformed, learned his lesson, great talent and now with Josh back on the field (but AFTER he completes his latest suspension. lol) the Browns will be really good this season and blah, blah and more blah! It is the same thing every summer and is total busllsh*t. A word of advice: the Browns do not have a QB, have a high school passing attack and cannot stop the run. They are a bad team and have been handicapped to finish at 4 -12 by our NFL expert, the Whale Man.
All of this annual, ridiculous pre-season Brown's propaganda has overshadowed the Indians fantastic year. Cleveland has always been a football town when it comes to the media and this foolish crap is fueled primarily by Right Wing fans who simply need to believe in Trickle Down Economics and a Browns reincarnation of their glory days. Amazingly, we are into late August and the first place Indians are finally starting to draw some large crowds. Not so amazingly, for most of the season they were in last place in attendance. Yes, really bad teams like the Atlanta Braves and Tampa Bay Rays have outdrew them and ownership has had to get a minority partner to shore up finances. The future to win over a continuing stupid and unappreciative MSM and 'fair weather fan' base is murky at best.
If MSM continues to fawn over the Browns and fans refuse to come to the ballpark to watch one of the most exciting teams in MLB, it may be time to say, "screw em" all and move the franchise.
