Everyone’s all abuzz about the Kevin Costner movie news that has him playing the GM of the Cleveland Browns. I don’t think I’m breaking any rules by telling you that it’s been one of the most popular posts on this site the last few days in terms of traffic. Now, there’s word that the Browns will be cooperative with the production. Nate Ulrich interviewed Alec Scheiner today and among the revelations in that Q&A to be posted later, Scheiner says of the production that “it’s good for the NFL. It’s good for the Browns. It’s good for Cleveland.” Alec Scheiner is the Cleveland Browns President which means he’ll be one of the most influential members of the Browns organization. Most can’t stop thinking about Joe Banner, and for good reason, but ultimately Scheiner might have more influence over Browns fans’ interactions with the team than any other person in Berea. Scheiner is responsible for many things from the newly formed analytics department, to even more things related to the business of the Browns, not the least of which is the game-day experience. Remember that as a member of the Cowboys organization, Scheiner oversaw a great deal of the “Jerry-dome” stuff including its construction, financing and marketing. Now he’ll also help shape the view of the Browns and Cleveland through the lens of a Kevin Costner movie production.
