While We’re Waiting serves as the early morning gathering of WFNY-esque information for your viewing pleasure. Have something you think we should see? Send it to our tips email at tips@waitingfornextyear.com Home field disadvantage: “Can it happen here? As in, “Can it happen in Cleveland?” And it pains me to write this, but will new the Cleveland Browns Stadium ever be like Baltimore, where the Ravens took the field Thursday night having won 12 in a row and 20-of-21 games. It’s a loud, hostile, stadium for a night game. I hate to say it, but this stadium is nearly as feared as old Browns stadium was in the late 1980s in the prime of the Bernie Kosar Era.” [Terry Pluto]  – Talk about accountability: “Liar, liar, pants on fire. Though Cleveland  Indians ownership gave Manny Acta a vote of confidence in late August, it turns out that they were meaningless words. The three-year manager of the Tribe was sacked on Thursday afternoon and replaced with Sandy Alomar Jr., who will serve as the interim manager for the rest of the regular season and will also be a very strong candidate for the full-time role in 2013.” [Kevin Kaduk/Big League Stew] – Despite the team’s best attempt to bury this lede: “Maybe we can assume there has been contact between [Terry] Francona’s agent and Indians management, but nobody’s sat down for an interview yet. But if you’re running a baseball team and you’re looking for a new manager, you sorta have to include Francona in the process. Considering, you know, he won a couple of World Championships. Also, he seems like a pretty sharp fellow on ESPN. Of course there are all sorts of caveats, which Rosenthal explores in some depth. But if you have to bet on who’s going to be the Indians’ next manager, the smart money’s probably on Terry Francona.” [Rob Neyer/SB Nation] – Eleven Warriors wants to know what your perfect “College Gameday” sign would be — and they’re ponying up for the winner. [Eleven Warriors] – And finally, an interview with Browns superfan “Captain Cleveland.” [Rant Sports]
