As a longtime Browns fan, I figure Manziel will be an NFL bust, the FBI will indict haslam and another 10 years in the basement is coming.

Who's this "god" they're talking about?

Shut the f*ck up, Poindexter.

The Wyatt Derp Effect may have had something to do with it too.

If subby's supposition is true, please explain Cleveland.

...but Teddy Bridgewater sure does.

I hadn't heard of the Wyatt Earp effect before. It's an argument that also applies to creationists, who talk about how improbable it would be for life to develop here on Earth, without taking into account just how enormous the universe is. I'll have to remember that term.

Anyway I disagree with Silver's first paragraph. All the coverage I've seen has praised Cleveland for maneuvering through the draft, cashing in on its Trent Richardson mistake and taking a calculated risk with big-time payoff potential. Manziel could have been a top-five pick and nobody would have batted an eye.

We did a lot of math that really has no real foundation in reality to come up with an article with no real conclusion.

Thanks!

Welcome to the new fivethirtyeight. It's completely ESPN's style - opinion articles masked by bullsh*t numbers.

I'm sure this is better for Nate but he should have never left the NYT in the manner he left it.

Uh, yes, yes he does.  T-shirts don't lie.

Suh will blow out Johnny Football's knee on his first snap in the Preseason.

Any word on the rest of the world?

/all signs point to yes

Not sure if this means you agree or disagree...

Hey I liked the miz Gunny! Well in the lead up to mania, then after he won at mania they completely farked up his character and sent him off the way of Damian Sandow.

But I think Gunny is trying to say that Cleveland has had a championship in the last 50 years. I think.

You could apply that to the creation of the universe itself. I've often heard how unlikely it is for all the physical constants to work out in such a way that matter can exist in a stable way without destroying itself immediately, but all it takes is for those constants to work out once. The universes that blinked out of existence aren't around to tell their tale.

That is what I was getting at and I totally agree with you about his Mania run.  He has been very bad since Awesome Truth split up.

He has been filming "The Marine 7: Really? Really? Really?" and should be back soon.

God doesn't hate FARK.   ESPN power rankings have come out since the draft and they're not here!
 
2014-05-15 10:24:28 AM
I don't want him to be back Gunny. Every time he returns it just reminds me he'll never be as awesome as beating up on John Cena and being all stone cold about it.

I do still think he had some cool shirts, I even own a couple if you didn't see the WWE logo on them you wouldn't even know.

The Browns and that douche-tool deserve each other.

God has convinced Cleveland through torture that it's name is not Cleveland, it's Reek. It rhymes with freak.

lies, damn lies, and statistics

A wise man once said: "Every country has city they make fun of.  In America, you make fun of Cleveland.  In Russia, they... make fun of Cleveland!"

Yeah, it's pretty bland. If not bad.

It's a lot of 'analysis' without ANY real world grounding, any real conclusion, or any discussion of factors that lead to or from the data. Basically every article I see is the statistics version of trivia.

I think Vox.com and their team has MUCH more interesting and well reasoned charts and articles.

It isn't like the Browns have traded up in the first round to pick up a QB before.

God might not hate Cleveland, but the Steelers, Bengals ad Ratbirds clearly do so the effect is the same.

I would totally live to see Mr. Football pull a Theon Greyjoy. He will be Reek and Suh will be Ramsay. Reek, it rhymes with cleats(that will be shoved up his ass, but it's okay, he'll eventually learn to like it).

Wow... A pittspuke fan needing the backup of his Bunghole and Ratbird brethren to make a point....  I would never in my life feel the need to align myself with divisional opponents in a lame attempt at credibility.

KingKauff: He might not hate Cleveland, but He sure ain't doing anything to help them


You now who else God didn't help?  Jesus.  See my point?
