(Pro Football Talk)   The Cleveland Browns are getting a new mascot. No, it's not a turd (but it came in a close second), it's a live bulldog named "Swagger"   (profootballtalk.nbcsports.com) divider line 33

Maybe a Chesapeake Bay Retriever?

So it's a failed champion being rebranded as an All-American American with a godawful lisp?

Yeah, sounds about right for Cleveland.

That's animal abuse... Making that poor dog associate with the Browns.

Somebody call Sarah MacLachlan.
 
2014-07-14 07:12:41 AM  
Yeah, a new mascot.  That's sure to break The Curse.
 
2014-07-14 07:14:01 AM  
Swagger?  More like Stagger amirite?
 
2014-07-14 07:41:54 AM  
That sounds like a great football team...FOR ME TO POOP ON

I bet he'll be totally in my face.

Only if they rastafy him by...ten percent or so.

\guess it's lost on the Ravens-hating Browns fans that the bulldog was, in fact, the mascot of the team they stole from Canton...and then lost anyway.

Shame.  'Steamer' would have been an awesome mascot name for a Turd.

Bring back the Brownie.
 
2014-07-14 08:37:29 AM  
But is he a Real American?

Not a bad name for a turd either, actually.
 
2014-07-14 08:45:12 AM  
will he have the ridiculously short lifespan that all the Ugas have?
 
2014-07-14 09:12:03 AM  
A turd would have been nice, I like taking the Cleveland Browns to the Super Bowl.

This is worse than Steely McBeam or whatever that asshole's name was.

I never thought much of Steely McBeam, and I am a Steelers fan. Is he even still in use?

I hear I'm coaching the Browns this year.

I heard he got a new identity and moved to Russia..

The mascot should be The Miz' dad
 
2014-07-14 09:54:37 AM  
They should have gone with Dan the Dumpster Fire.

We watched Steely McBeam get unveiled at the Hall of Fame Game a few years ago. They actually booed.
My wife's a Steelers fan. She hates Steely McBeam. So one of my father's friends (a Jets fan, oddly enough) bought our daughter a stuffed Steely McBeam doll. Of course, she loves it, while my wife seethes. I just laugh.

I'm thinking Earl myself.

Great choice. Just think of all the fun things they can do with it.

Get a female dog in heat, paint some Bengals stripes on it and have them go at it before the game.
Starve the dog for a few days, put some roast beef with a bone on it inside a stuffed raven and have him gnaw on during the game.
Put a Cleveland Browns rooter inside a fake Steely McBeam costume and have him hump his leg.
For all the non division rivals train him to do his business on towels with the other team's logos on it.

/I bet the crowd would go wild to any and all of these.

Or have the dog rape Big Ben and see how the scumbag likes it

I'm looking forward to the dog biting Ray Rice when he runs out of bounds.

I have the sneaking suspicion that the ownership is doing this so that it isn't a shock when the uniform redesign for next year includes a new bulldog logo.

This is Chesty, there are many like him...

 
2014-07-14 02:50:35 PM  
No ... its a BULLMASTIFF named "Swagger"
 
2014-07-14 03:16:27 PM  
I like the picture in the article. "Cleveland mascot? Can't you just take me to the pound instead?"
 
2014-07-14 08:10:28 PM  
I think the Browns would have been better off with the actual dog turd.  (As opposed to the team
just playing like a dog turd.)
