While the Cleveland Browns officially entered a new chapter of team history by unveiling the sale of the naming rights to Cleveland Browns Stadium to FirstEnergy, team owner Jimmy Haslam III stated that the team will also “look into” changes to the team’s uniform. Due to the glacial pace of legalese-clad updates to anything in the NFL, the team has filed the requisite paperwork that could see minor updates to the otherwise hitorical uniform as early as the 2014 season. Browns fans who cling to history and nostalgia will be glad to know that the logo-free helmets will remain so as not altering he team’s headgear was one of the four stipulations agreed to upon the transfer of ownership from Randy Lerner to Haslam 1 . While there may  be some minor changes to the Browns’ uniforms, what will remain untouched are the current sidelines as cheerleaders will not be added to the fold. One of only a handful of teams to not have cheerleaders gracing the outskirts of the playing field, Haslam stated that they, while littering all of Dallas, “do not fit Cleveland.” The impending changes to the team’s uniform and in-stadium accouterments has been an ongoing topic of discussion since Haslam took ownership of the team. Like every other Browns-based topic, the emotional reactions have been mixed.
