Frustrated Cleveland Browns fans mock winless season with a parade

Frustrated Cleveland Browns fans mock winless season with a parade

The "civil war" that emerged between Browns fans who thought the parade was a stupid idea and those that were passionate about being there, spread to our newsroom as well. It let this group of fans - how many would have been there on a nicer day? - make their voices heard.

This year, McNeil said the response from fans at the parade was overwhelming.

"Jimmy Haslam doesn't know how good he has it with this town", he told Cleveland.com.

"I love the Cleveland Browns", Bonnell said.

"We're going to eat lots of food", Bonnell said. McNeil, who like other fans was basking in the aftermath of the Cavaliers winning the National Basketball Association title to end the city's 52-year championship drought, posted a sarcastic message on Twitter about the Browns: "This team deserves a parade".

Following the loss in Pittsburgh last Sunday that secured their dubious place in the record books, joining the 2008 Detroit Lions as the only teams to accomplish 0-16, several players shrugged off the planned parade but Saturday morning defensive linemen Emmanuel Ogbah and Danny Shelton expressed their displeasure with it on Twitter.

While a dozen playoff participants hope to solidify a proper championship parade, Browns fans will look to the 2018 draft, as Cleveland holds the Nos.

Healy said he thinks the parade shows what a joke the front office is, but also how much the fans still support the team. Polk followed it with, "What do we want?"


The parade even garnered fans for other teams.

The event's floats, which included a dumpster, creatively made light of the Browns' ineptitude.

It was going to be cold and miserable, I thought.

Some fans tossed candy into the crowd from vehicles.

"I'm supporting the Browns fans, and it's only going to get better from here".

"I think they need to develop a program, not throw these young guys in there and expect them to do everything". New Cleveland general manager John Dorsey has already stated on multiple occasions that the team would take an aggressive approach in the market when looking to add players to the team. "We're not out here saying we're happy about 0-16". "The season was an embarrassment".

Matt Florjancic and I chatted with fans from the Twin Cities area in Minnesota about why they came down to be here today.
