Cleveland Fan - you've got some splainin' to do...
« on: March 22, 2016, 05:18:24 pm »
http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2626769-cleveland-fans-chose-johnny-manziel-over-jim-brown-in-cleveland-sports-bracket?is_shared=true

When it comes to comparing the careers of Jim Brown and Johnny Manziel, there's no debate as to which one was the more productive player.

Brown, a Hall of Fame running back, wins by a landslide. And yet, Johnny Football is moving on to the next round in the Cleveland Sports March Matchups.

Seriously.

In the spirit of March Madness, Cleveland.com has come up with a tournament that features some of the most notable athletes in Cleveland and Ohio State history. The bracket features 16 players from each of the Buckeyes, the Cleveland Browns, the Cleveland Indians and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

One first-round matchup in the Browns region that should not have had any real intrigue was No. 1-seed Brown against No. 16-seed Manziel. Let's take a look at the matchup by the numbers:
•Brown (nine seasons): 118 games, 12,312 rushing yards, 5.2 yards per carry, 126 (106 rushing and 20 receiving) touchdowns
•Manziel (two seasons): 14 games, eight starts, completed 57 percent of passes, 1,675 passing yards, seven touchdowns, seven interceptions, 259 rushing yards, one rushing touchdown

The numbers tell the story: Brown had a much better career in Cleveland than Manziel. In other words, this matchup should have produced a blowout.

When the results were revealed, there was indeed a blowout—just not the one you would think (or at least hope):
•Brown: 31.78 percent
•Manziel: 68.22 percent

Come on, Cleveland.

I think we have long concluded that Cleveland is full of retards.

This is just more proof of our original hypothesis.

Apparently you can't spot a deliberate sabotage when you see it. I follow the guy who initiated it on Twitter. Major troll, so they Sanjaya'd it so Manziel, who shouldn't have even been in this tournament, won handily.

Says "Most notable athletes" not best athletes. Regardless, Cleveland in general is a huge steaming pile as the Urban Dictionary has noted.

OK, Cleveland fan supporting "major troll"; so what did you accomplish with this moronic feat exactly (besides having anyone around the country who saw it think you are even more ignorant than initially thought)??

You don't have to "troll" to get people around the country to think you aren't very bright, Cleveland fan.  Stop trying so hard.
