09:15 AM ET 07.05 | Once upon a time, the Browns had a waiting list for season tickets. No more. And once upon a time, it may have seemed the Browns were taking their fans for granted. They say that no longer is the case, as Bryan Wiedmeier, the new executive vice president of business operations, is making a major effort to not only sell more tickets, but increase fan satisfaction.

They could've started by firing Mangini.

Winning some meaningful games would also help. I guess they would have to implement your suggestion before mine happened.

Indeed, let's hope they don't throw the Colt to the wolves this season.

They need to do something, like have a plan to win a few games. Cleveland has some great fans, they need a team that deserves such fans. I'll dispense with the Cleveland jokes. After all, they have a new TV program: "Loose Women in Cleveland."

I couldn't have stated it more eloquently myself. Mangina.......

Bottom line is that, if they want to get fans back, all they need to do is stop sucking. Winning ALWAYS brings back fans.

The Browns attendance figures for last year were quite good, all things considered. Not even close to many other teams with more serious fan base problems.

Ya I think the Browns will bounce back and grab those less hardcore fans back. I know I'll be at couple games, can't wait! Go Browns! Always the number 1 team in Cleveland.

Yeah, win games. They can't count on finishing higher just because Pittsburgh may self-destruct, and Cincy played over their heads last year. They're still the doormat of the division going in, and they've got to do more than beat other doormats to get out of it.

This is the Browns we're talking about, that could take a while.

Maybe they should consider wearing circus tents instead of shirts.

July 5, 2010  10:50 AM ET

Wait how can you claim something you never had?

July 5, 2010  10:52 AM ET

Let's make winning the fans back a game. Look at the picture and provide an answer on why one of those men is not like the other.

July 5, 2010  10:58 AM ET

They could start by fielding an NFL-caliber team.

Or at least field a team that resembles one.

And finding a starting quarterback.

I've only met one Browns fan in my life, he was a nice enough guy but he was an adult film actor. Every time I think of the Browns fans I feel like I need to wash my hands.
