OK. Let's try this again, since there is breaking news.

If the conversation goes toward politics again, it will be locked again.

The latest article from the PD:

Quote:
Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam's travel center company for "many years'' engaged in a fraud scheme to keep money owed to customers as gas rebates, according to documents filed in federal court Thursday.

The documents further say Haslam knew about the fraud committed by top sales officials at his family business, Pilot Flying J, in which employees targeted unsophisticated trucking companies through a rebate program. Federal documents unsealed today also say he was present for discussions about the rebate fraud activities.

As PFT said, one of the best owners in the NFL all time (Eddie DeBartolo) lost ownership of the 49ers after pleading guilty to extortion. Now that they have records showing that Haslam knew about this and signed off on it, I don't know what to think

Finally get an owner that cares about the team and he's as shady as they come

The problem is this thing will probably take ahwhile in courts.

Hopefully if a new owner is in the books, he wouldn't rip everything down so soon.

Though I guess that's what Haslem just did.


I freaking hate this team some times.

I am now in full belief that Karma does not exist...... we are loyal to our team and what happens we get our team stolen from us and when we get it back we have to endure season after season after season of losing..... Baltimore steals our team and they get rewarded with 2 Super Bowls...... It is so unfair

I'm on board with trading down and getting as many future picks as possible at this point.

This [inappropriate/removed] blows.

Doesn't Pilot Flying J make billions of dollars per year? Was this extra lil bit of money worth it Haslam? I'm tired of getting crapped on for the team sucking, now we have to suffer through this stuff. Reminds me of the scene from Step Brothers about the white dog poop

Clearly not going to be the bigger man here

Remember when I said "careful what you wish for" in re getting rid of Lerner?

Im sure it's more about getting a reputable image. These places were the driving force for his business. Just because he allegedly withheld 150k from 1 company doesn't mean that's all he made off that company.

Man I don't even know. I was pretty nervous about our team being sold last fall because of the unforeseen problems, but I didn't see this crap coming our way.
