PLAYERS: Jimmy Haslam
TEAMS: Cleveland Browns
For the third time, a Pilot Flying J executive has plead guilty to fraud charges in the wake of the investigation into Browns’ owner Jimmy Haslam’s truck stop company. Kevin Clark admitted to authorizing checks which shorted customers on rebates they had earned. “Clark worked as regional sales manager for Knoxville-based Pilot from 2008 to 2011. According to federal documents filed in April, Clark worked remotely and lived in Lee’s Summit, Mo., a suburb of Kansas City. He admitted today that he approved checks shorting customers on fuel rebates. Clark agreed to cooperate against others in the case and is to be sentenced at a future date.” [Lakin/Knoxnews] Clark joins two other regional managers in admitting conspiracy to commit fraud and “cooperating” in the case. It doesn’t take a law degree to assume that the target of the cooperation would be the executives at Pilot HQ. How far up the ladder it will reach is still anyone’s guess.

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. No, the excitement really had nothing at all to do with football or the Browns. It was for the Fan Kickoff Concert featuring legendary rock band Bon Jovi. Go ahead.

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.
