Reason #385 - Political Events

LeBron James and Jay-Z are sponsoring a free "Vote for Obama" concert next week at the Q, which seats about 20,000. We could pack in 40,000 or 60,000 if we had a roof on one of our stadiums.

Reason #384 - Kellen Winslow

The blow-up between Kellen Winslow and the Browns should remind all of us that players are rented gladiators and administrators and coaches are hired to be fired. The only things that last are tradition and facilities. We can overcome selfish players and bad management, but the lack of a roof on Browns Stadium will stick with us for a long time.
