Cleveland Browns join 2008 Detroit
Lions as NFL´s only 0-16 teams

Detroit Free Press, by Carols Monarrez

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 1/1/2018 12:50:06 PM

PITTSBURGH — Move over, 2008 Detroit Lions. You have company. The Cleveland Browns have finished the season 0-16 and have equaled you in futility. With a 28-24 loss Sunday to the Pittsburgh Steelers before 50,704 at Heinz Field, the Browns joined the 2008 Lions as the only NFL teams to finish a season 0-16. And I have to say it feels good. Like a weight has been lifted from Detroit’s back. Like an ugly mole has been removed. Maybe it’s true that misery loves company. In a Twitter poll I posted before the game, 67 percent of more than 500

Comments:
And last year they were 1-15. Soul-crushing bad.

I found myself in a business yesterday that was playing a station with a NFL game on the TV. In the past I was interested / ambivalent about the game / players.

Imagine my surprise when I looked at the game and felt revulsion for the thugs on the field and the owners that allow and encourage their anti-social and unpatriotic behavior.

Am I the only one that has undergone a wholesale metamorphosis of attitude about the NFL and football?

Mostly, #1. The players are a problem, to be sure....they are the most visible example of the millennial generation raised on diet of SJW idiocy including pro-gay and pro-thug propaganda.

But the attitude towards the owners is shifting also. They are no longer regarded as pillars of the community or even sportsmen who ´just want to win.´ Instead, they are becoming known as venal, greedy, and insecure. TV money has made at least half the league content to cash a check and to heck with the game results.

Remember the Browns fan who died a couple of years ago with his final request for six Browns pallbearers so they could let him down one more time.

The Browns lost to the Nittany Lions yesterday... Pittsburgh didn´t even play their starters!
Here´s what is truly amazing about all this - they insist, INSIST that they will be keeping this 31-1 coach! Not only that, but the coach stated that nobody in the NFL could have done his job any better! A guy who didn´t even win ONE game this season has the audacity to say this!! He should be fired on that statement alone!
I am truly living in a world I no longer understand!

Browns have had only 2 winning seasons since 1999. Quite possibly the worst team in football.

LONDON — For more than a year, Finland has been testing the proposition that the best way to lift economic fortunes may be the simplest: Hand out money without rules or restrictions on how people use it. The experiment with so-called universal basic income has captured global attention as a potentially promising way to restore economic security at a time of worry about inequality and automation. Now, the experiment is ending. The Finnish government has opted not to continue financing it past this year, a reflection of public discomfort with the idea of dispensing government largess free of requirements that

YORK, Pa. -- One of five black women golfers who were told to leave a Pennsylvania club said Tuesday it felt like they were playing "with targets on our backs." Representatives of the Grandview Golf Club in York told the group at the second hole they were playing too slowly Saturday, said Sandra Harrison. After the ninth hole, an hour-and-a-half later, the group of white men told them they took too long a break and needed to leave. Harrison said she and two other women left because they were so rattled by the treatment. "It was like we were playing

Seattle´s proposed tax to fight

Seattle has a thriving economy and booming housing market, and is home to successful businesses like Amazon and Starbucks. But it also has a homeless crisis and an affordable housing problem. To help alleviate both, the Seattle City Council is weighing a proposal to impose a new tax on big businesses. The proposed tax amounts to 26 cents per working hour per employee in Seattle. That works out to roughly $540 a year for every full-time employee. Only businesses that generate at least $20 million of annual revenue in Seattle itself would be subject to the tax. The legislation would

Members of the Omega Psi Phi fraternity rallied at a Starbucks in Philadelphia on Sunday after their fraternity brother, Rashon Nelson, was arrested there earlier this month in an incident the city’s mayor called an example of racial profiling. More than 100 fraternity members and supporters attended the “Rally Against Racial Injustice” on Sunday afternoon, held near the downtown Philadelphia Starbucks where Nelson and his friend, Donte Robinson, were arrested on April 12 after the store’s manager asked them to leave because they hadn’t purchased anything.

BERKELEY - A coffee shop in Berkeley, the Elmwood Cafe, has closed overnight without warning. The abrupt closure comes after a famous comedian alleged that a racist incident happened to him at the cafe similar to the recent arrest of two black men in a Philadelphia Starbucks. On Monday, famous East Bay comedian W. Kamau Bell recalled on CNN how he says he experienced racism there. “In 2015, I was kicked out of the Elmwood Cafe because they thought I was harassing my wife and my 13-week old baby,” Bell said.

Her remarks come after an alleged anti-Semitic attack Tuesday in Berlin caused a stir in Germany.

Perhaps the most enduring puzzlement about Donald Trump the president and candidate is his ability, if that’s what it is, to attract a faithful political base founded on fervent evangelical Christians, despite his frequently reinforced reputation for less than righteous acts and statements. During the 2015-16 campaign, each emerging example of Trump misbehavior, from off-color references to women and allegations of affairs, convinced Eastern elites and media to believe the billionaire’s upstart political rebellion was doomed any day.

Schumer announced today for the 4/20 cannabis holiday his plan to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level, writing that he had evolved on the issue along with the electorate. Kennedy argued lawmakers should oppose legalization of marijuana, in part because it would worsen the crisis of addiction in America. “The biggest issue here is denial in our lives, those of us who come from homes with alcoholism and addiction, who live with it in our

Planned Parenthood is once again proving its hunger for powerful allies in government positions. GOP control of the Senate is narrow, and with the upcoming Senate races, the power balance could tip in favor of Democrat, pro-abortion advocates. Planned Parenthood knows this, of course, and will be pouring a reported $30 million into abortion advocacy through its political arm. This money will be spent on Senate and gubernatorial races in a number of states, including Arizona, Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, and will be used to fund TV and digital ads, direct-mail campaigns, and even advocacy in the public square.
