NFL  > Cleveland Browns  > Dawg Pound Mike - A great example of why Cleveland Rocks
November 4, 2009, 08:37 AM
What other city in this country could have something like this happen? A regular guy, a fan... a true representation of the people who love and mourn Cleveland sports gets a 1/2 hour meeting that turns into a 2 hour meeting with our team Owner?

Awesome!

Before all you fans from other cities jump in and say "we could do it too," don't kid yourself. This would NEVER happen in NY, NEVER happen in Chicago, NEVER happen in LA because it would take someone who isn't a regular guy to get in the door. A Spike Lee, an Alec Baldwin, a Barack Obama. Simply put... this is one of the reasons Cleveland is unique among sports cities... the Fans not only are loyal but also feel OBLIGATED to do anything we can to turn this dismal century around.

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, you say... it isn't going to change anything. Maybe, Maybe not... but there isn't a city in this country that boast this kind of fan dedication... or passion. WHY do we stay with our teams??? Because all of us bleed for a city that may not be perfect... but has some amazing people who don't just sit there and complain... but get a meeting with an NFL OWNER to tell him that he isn't doing enough!

We may be another century away from a championship.... but I'll take Cleveland fans over the bandwagoners of any other city any day of any week of any year.

Here's to you Dawg Pound Mike! You are the best example of a fan. I look up to you!
