"I would be pissed if I got my ass shipped to Cleveland."--Chris Cooley, 3/18/2009
In case you aren't as internet saavy as I am, there is a little war brewing on the blogosphere between Redskins TE Chris Cooley and the demented and ignorant Cleveland Browns fanbase. Allow me to explain how this all started:
Last week, on Cooley's blog (which is fantastic), he mentioned that his name had surfaced in recent trade talks. He had heard that, in a 3 team deal, the Broncos would get Brady Quinn and the Rainbow Coalition, the Redskins would get Jay "The Pussy" Cuntler and Tony Scheffler, and he and Jason Campbell would be sent to Cleveland. First of all, Denver would be getting raped on this trade so it would never happen. Second, as much as I love Cooley and J-Camp, this would be a GREAT deal for the Skins meaning that Snyder would never do it because it's his goal to sabotage the organization through his own retardation. But that isn't the point really. Much like Ichiro, Cooley appears to have besmirched the mistake by the lake.
Anyway, so Cooley posts that quote and, of course, Browns fans get upset. They flood his comments section with a ton of vitriolic messages that feature more grammatical errors than JBeanie's formerly updated blog crossed with Clark Kellogg commentating a game of hoops. And he did what all great men do when presented with a situation like this...not apologize. He simply used his superior intellect and impeccable rationale to make the Browns fans realize how stupid that they are. I love it. Go ahead, check out the posts on his site. "Dennis" comes off like a pussy ass bitch.
What's the big deal anyway? The guy has a forum to speak his mind daily. There are weak rumors that he could be uprooting his life. He's honest about, he doesn't want to leave. The Browns are a loser organization with no direction, no stability, and no clue. There is no hope (unless you were once a backup for the Jets). No matter how proud of a Browns fan that you are, you can see his point, can't you? For God's sake, you hire a puppet GM and a coach that was deemed in a player's poll to be the man you would least want to play for. What do you expect? You throw all of this shit together and you wonder why no one good wants to wear the orange and brown.
Why would anyone want to play in Cleveland right now? I don't even think "a chance to start" is a viable reason anymore. If you ever wanted to see the football equivalent of the Major League Indians spring training roster, you may have it in The Dawg Pound this Fall. Most of these guys never had a prime. This guy's dead! Ironically, Man-genius invited Marquise Cooper to camp, too.
