Reason #403 - Winslow Trade

The Browns paid Kellen Winslow tens of millions of dollars and have nothing to show for it - don't even know WHICH draft picks or WHEN. Proves my point again - spend your money on overpriced, enigmatic players and you get nothing. Spend your money on a roof, and you have comfort ... and value ... and a place that quality free agents will want to play. Admit it, it's all starting to make sense now.

Reason #402 - $500 Million to Spend

Today's Plain Dealer asks what the $500 million in additional sales tax could be used for if the medical mart-convention center plan falls apart. The answer is, and has been for the last two years, right here - add roofs to the Indians and Browns stadiums to turn them into year-round attractions and economic growth drivers. Total cost of about $200 million, which means $300 million left over for schools, wind farms, green technology, tax rebate, etc.
