    I would say that's probably going to turn out to be true. LeBron and the Cavs were the only team we had for so long with any shot of doing anything, and it's made even worse by the fact that LeBron is turning his back on his hometown. Add to that the fact that he did so on a national special that further fed his ego and insulted Cleveland sports fans.

    No Way. Lebron will be forgotten about but what Modell did will never be forgotten. Ironically, after growing up a Browns fan in Ohio I never met any players until I moved to Newport news, VA. In one two week period I met and hung out with Kosar, Mack, and Langhorne. Very cool guys and they all confirmed the biggest problem with the Browns is Modell didn't give a fuck about winning or losing. All he wanted was management and players that would kiss his ass.

    I've since stopped supporting pro sports and Modell was the trigger but largely it's because there's no Heart anymore. The specific field doesn't matter because the majority of players are running for dead presidents and not their teams or hometowns. If they can't be loyal why should fans be?

    LeBron won't be forgotten, not by a longshot.

    The left has been in a lather all day about his choice. Not being a really big sports fan I can't figure out why? Why can't the guy choose where he wants to play and for whom without all the flak?

    Well LeBron showed no class at all, so is it possible to show negative class?

    God, am I sick and tired of the wailing. So LeBron moved, took a new job? So what? Why wouldn't he have the right to do so? Cleveland fans burning his jersey, the owner carrying on like LeBron made off with the silver...it's preposterous.

    I wish him and his family nothing but the best.
