Reason #308 - Give the Fans What They Want

The Browns have sent out a survey asking fans what events besides Browns football they would consider attending at Browns Stadium. They also ask how the time of year affects fans' wilingness to attend outdoor events. That sounds to me like they might be starting to consider adding a roof to attract big events and large crowds.

Reason #307 - Presidential Politics

The remaining candidates for president are about to descend on Ohio. Some people believe they'll say anything to get elected. If they promise us a roof, we have to make sure they follow through.

Reason #306 - Indoor Football Predictions

The Cleveland Gladiators begin play March 3. I may be going out on a limb here, but I think Arena Football in the spring could be a huge hit in Cleveland. Tickets start at $12 per seat - and you're guaranteed that seat will be dry and warm. Another prediction: Don't be surprised if the Gladiators draw more fans at an April game than the Indians.

The Arena Football League season starts in early March, with the new Cleveland Gladiators. Here's hoping that football played under a roof captures the imagination of this city. At least it's a step in a positive direction.
