This, on Art Modell’s status as a finalist for the next round of NFL Hall of Fame voting to take place Super Bowl weekend, might be the best column that NFL Hall of Fame selector and legendary local Cleveland Browns beat writer Tony Grossi has ever written.
Here’s the upshot:
Many of Modell’s supporters have since said it’s time for Cleveland to “forgive and forget.”
So I now ask what is the prevalent feeling in the Cleveland market. Should I speak against Modell’s candidacy? Speak for it? Or lay back and let the other 45 selectors make their decision without any input from me?

So we trust that folks will do their best to make sure that Tony (@TonyGrossi) gets the memo.
Thank you for your continued support of the very concept of civilization, as well as your support of Cleveland Frowns. Also, word up to shoving matches, and also to Josh Cribbs for a well deserved Pro Bowl nod (lifetime achievement).
