    Despite the fact that the lazy, sensationalist media is trying to make "Textgate" happen, I refuse to put it in the title on principle.

    I mean, I knew Jimmy Haslam was a crap owner when he first bought the team. But, just... whenever you think we've got it bad, take a look over to Cleveland. Truly the Factory of Sadness, and committed to maintaining that title.

    Now granted, any of you who know me know that I loathe "Peaches" LaCanfora as any sort of credible news source - he's more of a barnacle who tries to jump other reporters' scoops prematurely and usually ends up reporting more wrong than truth. But, the guy actually does have a pretty damn good grasp on football (if a complete lack of good personal sources) so his editorials are something I do put some credence in.

    This one in particular is pretty damning.

    Don't ask what Browns can do for you. It's lame.

    Hmm... I really dislike the -gate "scandals", it's as if the media is trying to make something more large scale than what it should be. Yet the media will shy away from Spousel-abuse-gate or not-for-profit-gate or concussion-gate or on and on and on.

    Did you really insinuate the media shied away from "concoussion-gate" as if that wasn't all I heard about in NFL related news for almost a year?

    Cleveland has a few NFL championships and the Cavs will probably win something with Lebron eventually. A lot of people from Cleveland root for and attend Ohio State, which, although not super close to the city itself, has quite a few championships.

    We native San Diegans, I guess, have had success at Little League World Series, Indoor Soccer, and probably things like the X games and surfing. But, as far as sports people watch, we suck. We're worse than Cleveland.

    I don't know about the rest of y'all, but I wear our bad-luck in sports as a badge of "Suck it." Any time I hear somebody complaining about the Browns, the Cubs or, in the old days, the Red Sox, I reminisce back to the prime of my life - frigid 70-degree winter days watching Billy Joe Tolliver overthrow passes into the field goal net, and think, "Suck it you whiny bitches."

    You think the Chargers are the worst sports team? You must be one sad defeated fan. You'll fit righr in with the UT forum members.
