PLAYERS: Bon Jovi
TEAMS: Cleveland Browns
The Bon Jovi concert scheduled to kick off the Browns’ season at FirstEnergy Stadium has been canceled, per Cleveland’s NewsNet5. The event, billed as a “major announcement” complete with exorbitant fan fare from the team less than one month ago, was also to include a “Fan Fest,” performance by Cleveland native Michael Stanley and the Resonators and a Browns pep rally, all leading up to the Bon Jovi show. Tickets for the show went on sale Monday, June 3 at 10 a.m. Citing multiple sources, there has not been a reason given for the cancellation, but the team—which is, naturally, not commenting at this time—is anticipated to send out a press release on the matter on Monday.

TE Jordan Cameron says his mindset is that he will be the starter

Cleveland Twitterverse comes up with the #BonJoviReplacement

When the going gets tough, the Cleveland Twitterverse helps the Browns replace Bon Jovi to help kick off the 2013 NFL season. Will the concert be cancelled for good? Will an alternate act be brought in to help sell it? Don’t say that we aren’t doing our part to help. Oh and it’s probably not possible, but if I had to choose a band that I’d go see and could fill up a stadium...

Bon Jovi and the Cleveland Browns Seriously Anger Fans

Cleveland Browns fans were excited to Fan Fest this year; not because the team is expected to actually be competitive for once.

Squeal like a little school girl now. If I lived in Cleveland I know I would have. ...

Jump Aboard the Bandwagon for Cleveland’s own Stipe Miočić

The scene is the Champps restaurant in Valley View Ohio. I arrived this past Saturday night to watch Stipe Miočić face off against Roy “Big Country” Nelson at UFC 161 and the restaurant is absolutely packed with Stipe’s people. It isn’t an odd mix of people or even a mix that is at odds, but it’s pretty clear which people are the firefighters and which are members of Miočić’s...
