Justin Timberlake courtside; Jay Z and Beyonce rumored


The Cleveland Cavaliers’ opener next Thursday is going to be star-studded. We already heard that Kendrick Lamar and Kevin Hart will be at the pre-game party, but now we know a couple of stars who are rumored to have secured swanky seats at LeBron James’ first regular season game back in Cleveland. Rumor has it


Watch Aaron Craft singing Party in the USA… badly

Aaron Craft

Why? I debated even posting this because it’s not funny so much as chill-inducing. Aaron Craft was at the Golden State Warriors’ “Open Practice” for the fans last night and (insert some joke about singing and practice.) If you don’t get embarrassed easily, you can watch the clip below. Oh yeah. He was also dressed


Uber, Browns, sports talk radio and more – WFNY Podcast – 2014-10-23

Podcast header Graphic

Craig and Dave Sterling (@dimoko) talk about everything from CDs and whether you need to keep them to sports talk radio commercials. We also went through our Amazon order histories dating back as far as our first orders. Make sure you screen cap the oldest orders that make you look cool and lame. Also, be


Browns QB “problems,” optimism as philosophy and Pompeii… While We’re Waiting


It’s Friday. It’s been a long week since the Browns lost to the Jags. Here’s hoping things turn up from here. The idea that the Browns have “problems” with their QB situation… I’ve heard a lot of talk this week about Johnny Manziel and whether or not it’s possible to regret that draft pick already.


Seahawks sign former Browns linebacker to be fullback


When the Browns cut Ray Agnew recently, it was surmised on Twitter by some that the Browns were making a move so that they could protect Kiero Small from being plucked from their practice squad. It was suggested to me by someone (sorry, can’t remember who but I think it was a member of the


NFL trade deadline might be a lost cause

Ray Farmer Cleveland Browns NFL Trade Deadline

You get the feeling that the NFL would love to pump up their trade deadline, but as Greg Garber points out at ESPN, reluctance rules the day. It’s the only thing in a nearly 365-day NFL year that the league hasn’t been able to turn into an event. There are some examples of deals that


Watch Kyrie Irving pass between his legs to Kevin Love

Kyrie Irving Kevin Love Cleveland Cavaliers

LeBron James didn’t play in Wednesday night’s pre-season game in order to rest, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t without highlights thanks to Shawn Marion, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love. Shawn Marion intercepted a pass and started a 3-on-1 fast break starring himself, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love. There was a day and age where


Browns lose to Jags – Craig on Dawgs on the Run

Craig on Dawgs on the Run

This morning, like I always do, I spoke about the Browns’ loss with Andy Baskin and Andre Knott on the WEWS web show Dawgs on the Run. My appearance starts a couple minutes into this clip. As always big thanks to Andy, Andre and Eric the Referee for having me on.


LeBron James bringing new leadership style in return

Cleveland Cavaliers Big Three

LeBron James went off to college and came back to Cleveland having learned a few things. According to Yahoo’s Marc J. Spears, James held a players-only meeting before the first practice this season in which he specifically laid out expectations for each and every player on the Cavs. “I was looking like, ‘Wow.’ That’s crazy


It’s not time for Johnny Manziel to take over… yet

Johnny 28

Despite an awful showing in Jacksonville against a really bad Jaguars team, it’s not time for Johnny Football. Brian Hoyer and the Cleveland Browns offense had a miserable day, but there’s little reason to think it would have been better with Johnny Manziel under center. His mobility might have helped at times, but it’s silly


Browns release Ray Agnew, sign Kiero Small

Ray Agnew from Browns official team site

Well that will fix it! The Browns have responded to their poor performance against the Jaguars on Sunday by releasing starting fullback Ray Agnew and replacing him with Kiero Small off of the practice squad. Small is a 5-9, 242-pound rookie out of Arkansas. Originally selected by Seattle in the seventh round, Small spent the


Browns play down to competition, lose to Jags 24-6


This is not one of those games that defines the ceiling of this Cleveland Browns team. It defines where they are in their development — and that’s not nearly as far developed as they want to be — but it doesn’t define their ceiling. This team can be a good one, but they’re not experienced


Tristan Thompson kisses Allie Clifton, calls her Tina

Tristan Thompson Cleveland Cavaliers

Pre-season basketball just needs to end. There might be a real basketball game to talk about. Alas, this is what we’ve got. Tristan Thompson was being very strange in a pre-game interview with FSO reporter Allie Clifton. He might have been fulfilling a dare or a bet or doing some kind of inside joke that


New Bills ownership could look to Mike Holmgren?


Another week and another rumor involving Mike Holmgren’s involvement in an NFL franchise. The Buffalo Bills were recently sold, and we know how that drill goes as we saw it all too closely with Joe Banner at Jimmy Haslam’s side. A lot of the rumor mill surrounding Joe Banner’s dismissal has it that Jimmy Haslam


Mike Pettine details working relationship with Kyle Shanahan

Cleveland Browns Mike Pettine

Mike Pettine’s meet-up with the media yesterday shined a little bit of light on how he operates as a head coach with his coordinators. I assumed a lot of what Pettine said about how he operates, but it’s always fun to get a bit of insight into it. On if he and Shanahan go over


Browns as favorites, scripting reality, and a fall playlist… While We’re Waiting


Trying to get used to the Browns as a road favorite… The Cleveland Browns aren’t supposed to be a favorite, let alone a road favorite. At least not in my mind having followed the team closely like the rest of you. I mean, I went through the numbers this week and it makes sense and
