Well its cleveland, nobody wants to be in cleveland.
 
2014-01-24 07:02:39 PM
I hope he takes out a 12 month lease. I am sure he could get a bargain in Cleveland. The people that own the Browns are dealing with the Feds shoving a telescope up their *sses because of the diesel fuel issues.

/ New ownership in Cleveland by 2015

It's Cleveland and your dad will be unemployed in 11 months. Knowing you'll be in 3 schools in three years sucks and, I feel for her.

The bright side is knowing you'll be out of Cleveland in 11 months.

This is hilarious. The coach AND his daughter both backhanded the Browns in different forms of media and at different times.
 
2014-01-24 07:16:59 PM
Zut Alors! another Browns thread! Call the too many threads about one team cops!

Well, she's 19 and should have graduated from high school, so that shouldn't be a problem.

Sent from Hauppauge? Not exactly close to Buffalo. And by "not exactly close to" I mean "nowhere remotely near."

I mean, he was in Buffalo, so I'm sure she's used to living in hollowed out former industrial cities.

You better watch it, I had the audacity to poke fun at Buffalo on Fark once and my clothes still smell like western New Yorker tears.

The problem is it's the last head coaching position he'll be offered. That job is as cursed as the team.

That tweet hardly contains the sort of disappointment you'd expect to hear from a teenager who found out she might move to Cleveland.
 
2014-01-24 08:04:22 PM
More importantly, she's 19. So, A: She probably doesn't have to move. And B: is she worth fapping to?
 
2014-01-24 08:13:28 PM
"It's the browns.. But hey, still pretty cool"

That's hardly what I'd call a condemnation of the team or the city.  It reads to me as what a way cool 19-year-old might have to say to a friend of hers.  About the best thing to come of this was what her father said about her learning a hard lesson about the hazards of social media.

I'm pretty sure there is a statute of limitations on things like this.  What happened 20 or 50 years ago doesn't really have much to do with the current state of affairs.

The Fords will give Caldwell at least 3 years, so he'll have a stop in between, and it's almost guaranteed to be further away.

I don't think anybody is going to be too outraged about this, we all know what she meant, and that she's right.

Sshh, It perpetuates the stereotype. That's OK. They can stay away. It's too cold here! It snows like a bastard twelve months out of the year! Our city is a rotting corpse! Our sports teams suck!

Suck. It. Long. Time. You. Farking. Asshats.

Maybe Fark isn't for you if you're tired of outdated jokes.

Or you could lighten up. Francis.

It is too cold there. And it does snow too much.

Wow. You guys will just slut yourselves out for any reason to beat up Cleveland.
Fascinating, almost. It's like an addiction. Maybe an obsession. Both?
C'mon...I dare you. Or should I make a bet that you can't see a bit of bad Cleveland sports news and actually let it pass. C'mon. I know you can do it.

Actually, it seems the most sh*t-talked-about sports cities on Fark are NY, Boston, Toronto, Chicago, Dallas.... Everyone making dumb, repetitive cracks on the internet could be Cleveland's greatest honor. You're in the upper echelon.

Someone appears to be having a "Welcome to Fark" moment. Teams that suck (or better still, towns full of teams that suck; best of all, ones that suck over and over and over again), they get dumped on. Do you really need a NEWS FLASH for that shocking tidbit?

Yeah, but it's sad watching the nation Pavlovian salivate soon as anything remotely negative comes down the pike. Seriously? A teenaged daughter whining about moving? That's it? Is that even worth your keystrokes?

See, right here is your problem. She wasn't whining. "It's the browns.. But hey, still pretty cool."  You, on the other hand -- you are whining. Lots of sad, whiny keystrokes, one right after another.

Scroll up. Have you noticed that a majority of these comments could basically be said about ANYTHING from the sports page about us?
God Hates Cleveland has been said for a long time. The mere mention of the Cavs brings that same tired thread about LeBron. The Indians are doing well? Just wait. Taking the Browns to the Super Bowl? *rolls eyes* No one wants to move here since Moses Cleaveland himself called it God-forsaken. Guess what? We're still here.
It's like listening to top 40 country radio. It's been the same script since 2010. In fact, the last time anyone added any original humor to making fun of us? It was one of us. (Factory of Sadness,) And the idea that the same generic thread being a psuedo-ritualistic Pavlovian response to anything about Cleveland - good or bad - is pretty much all the evidence I need to make my case that its basically a bigger waste of time for you to post, share and comment on this crap than it is actually being a Cleveland fan in the first place.
There's nothing left to say. The horse is dead. Stop beating it.

Let he who was without sin cast the first stone...meaning here, you should only be outraged if you weren't thinking "by far, the Browns is the crappiest coaching job available, but hey it's the NFL and you're a head coach."

She committed the ultimate burn: being harsh and correct.
