>>64636643 Since they got BTFO by Modell and he left with the team that would eventually go on to win a SB, and a head coach that will be known as the most successful head coach of the last 20 years, really they said they would get over it, but the fans and to some degree the FO never has, until Haslam bought the team and he's a fucking sneak thief.
>>64637215 Yeah, I meant the FO staff and coaches, not the owners, I don't consider them FO, I just consider them overly-rich assholes that enjoy the fact they get richer w/ ants watching mandingos crush eachother on a field for a meaningless game and a shiny diamond ring.
>>64636643 They were actually a historically successful franchise until Elway slapped the shit out of them in three straight playoff games. Their shit streak is really only the New Browns and Belicheck's time there. They were upper class until then.
>>64646595 He was co-founder so they named it after him, kinda like the Packers being named after the company that founded them. The Bengals where named after the 30's team of the same name, so he didn't even do it then.
Also I reiterate, they were a great team from 45-90, they just haven't been able to do shit since most of /sp/ was born.
