Cleveland Browns: The NFL Standard of Dysfunction
Yesterday the Cleveland Browns traded running back Terrance West to the Tennessee Titans for a conditional 7th round draft pick...West, in his rookie season, was the Browns leading rusher last year...The Browns had traded up to pick West in the 3rd round...And poof, he's suddenly no good, and can only garner a 7th round pick...I find this truly ridiculous...
More ridiculous is the standard Cleveland smear campaign smear campaign that happens every time a Cleveland sports team makes a move like this...Cleveland Plain Dealer, Browns shill, Mary Kay Cabot wrote, "the Browns had grown weary of West’s Incosistency the field and immaturity off the field."
The media smear continued with comments like, “maturity issues,” and “wasn’t well-liked by some in Berea” and “not exhibiting the professionalism the Browns were seeking.”
The Browns seeking professionalism is one of the funniest things I read...This is the organization who's GM (Ray Farmer) is suspended right now by the NFL, for texted down to the sideline during games, about what players should be played, and what plays to call...This is the organization who's owner had his business raided by the FBI...This organization wanting professionalism is the same group that drafted Johnny Manziel and let him act like a fuck-tard all last year...
This is alaso the organization that Suspended their Offensive Line Coach, Andy Moeller Monday, indefinately, with a very vague press release...
"Andy was involved in an incident, involving allegations that we take very seriously. We have followed our internal protocol, determining that right now it is best for the team and for Andy to take time away from the organization to focus on his personal matters. We are going to respect the process of investigation on this personal matter and will have no further comment at this time."
Later in the day Pat McManamon from ESPN.com reported,
"A woman called police over the weekend, alleging had assaulted her, the sources said. The woman was a guest of 's from Maryland.
