The Cleveland Browns are getting dragged online for their lackluster gifts for season ticket holders.
The Cleveland Browns had a lot to make up for after this bungled offseason. The team destroyed its reputation in a series of baffling moves and did so without even thinking about how it would affect the fanbase. The Browns were finally looking like a team that got past dysfunction, only to further dive into the endless pit that is.
From going out of their way to bury Baker Mayfield to trading for a sexual assaulter (according to Judge Sue L. Robinson) Deshaun Watson (who was ruled to be a danger around women), to failing to improve the wide receiver corp beyond one hapless trade and constantly insulting fans intelligence with the fallout of the Watson trade.
You would think, beyond a doubt, they would realize that they need a home-run swing to soothe the anguish a lot of the season ticket holders are having at this moment. Did they come through? Nope.
The Browns decided that they were going to make things worse. Despite the fact some fans will in fact not support the team going forward, and the fact that their reputation is wrecked, you’d think they would do something better than crappy hats and license plate borders for fans who spent, at minimum, $400 on tickets.
That wasn’t the case and the fans roasted them on Twitter for it.
The Las Vegas Raiders really humiliated everyone
What’s bad enough is the Browns decided to give everyone dollar store items from the 1980s, while the Las Vegas Raiders are giving fans a collectible that will be awesome for years to come. Sure, you can’t wear it on your head while you paint but if you’re a fan of unique collectibles (as I am), then this is absolutely a far more impressive package than two flimsy hats that don’t fit correctly or a $5 license border.
This Raiders ticket case probably cost $50 on its own to produce. I’m not entirely sure the Browns didn’t just find out that Art Model had a self-storage unit and just said “yeah, we’ll use this.” Anything to save a buck, I guess.
Still. Not as bad as the Jets I guess.
