    Very nice book depicting how the Browns got screwed when Modell took the team to Baltimore and left us with an expansion team. It also dives into just how of an unfair advantage the new Browns had compared to other expansion teams of recent times.

    "This should be a fun read as the NFL season starts up," I say to myself. Then it's a slow and painful realization that I'm reading an 11 year old book about how the Browns can't win and nothing has changed since its was written.It was enjoyable to remember all the horrible players, inept front office decisions, and specific moments (bottle game anyone?) captured by Pluto.Here's to another 4-12 season!

    Brutally honest look at the expansion Browns. Explains in details how they were put at a disadvantage compare to the earlier expansion teams in Jacksonville & Carolina. All Cleveland sports enthusiasts should read this in-depth look at the NFL & the Cleveland Browns by Terry Pluto.

    I read this as the Browns were ever so close to making the playoffs this season. Pluto's account of the sad ineptitude of the new Browns made me so grateful for the team we've had to root for this year.

    As with all Terry Pluto's books, an easy and fascinating read for Cleveland sports fans. Really lays out all the factors that combined to make the Browns return to football in 1999 a BIG disappointment to Browns fans everywhere.

    Pluto writes like a sportswriter, which is ok. Art Modell is not ok.

    I am not from Cleveland nor am I a Browns fan but I love reading Pluto's work. Very interesting, great read that I breezed through very quickly!
