Jimmy Haslam stayed home from owners meeting

AP

With 32 NFL owners gathered in Houston to decide the fate of the Los Angeles market, one owner apparently has bigger business to attend to.

According to the Associated Press, Browns owner Jimmy Haslam is not attending the meeting, sending his wife and co-owner Dee to cast his ballot.

It’s not as if Dee Haslam can’t handle the L.A. vote, the bigger question might be whether her husband can get his coaching search right this time.

The Browns have interviewed seven candidates so far, with the latest with Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson.

If Haslam stayed home to make a push for Jackson, his time might be better spent there.

  1. The Browns would have a better chance of getting it right if Jimmy had gone to the owners’ meeting and Dee had stayed back in Cleveland to handle the coaching search.

  2. In the best interest of the city and league, Haslam should sell his interest in the team. He has had it long enough to screw up the team.

  3. Roger Goodell’s National Integrity League

    Where an owner can con tens of millions of dollars from his PilotFlyingJ customers but has enough “integrity” to be allowed to own a team.

    Haslam should be in jail, not owning a major sports franchise.

    Goodell is vile

    Goodell must go

  4. This dude is a criminal..he stole millions and lied to the government under oath..yet Goodell worries bout stupid little crap the players do like wearing pink not during breast cancer month

  5. I’m a Vikings fan recovering from another botched field goal that lost us another playoff game and I look at what Browns’ fans have put up with for the past 20+ years and I SHUT my mouth. How an owner can be so short fused thinking that an NFL team can just turn things around with overall mediocre coaches and players, is absolute inexplicable. PLUS, who would really come into an organization with that much negative history and toxicity? I feel for you guys and hope there’s some sort of saving grace for you the fans and the team – Good Luck

  6. He says, “Whats the big deal on where to locate a business, just find a highway exit with some land and put it there, sheesh…”

  7. He avoided the owners meeting, but was spotted mere blocks from his home in a Burger King, sporting a blonde wig, fake mustache, sunglasses, and posing as Jerry Manzlam. He was found out when he used his own credit card for a #6 meal.

  8. Get it right this time? They could hire anyone and the truth is no one will know if he is a good hire for 4 years. If Saban is so good why did he fail in Miami? Throw a dart and hope.

  9. I’m sure that if Haslam hires Hue Jackson that it’ll be on the advice of the same homeless guy who recommended that he draft Johnny Manziel as his QB. And Jackson would add the same kind of chaos to the Browns as Manziel (as if Cleveland needs more of that).

  10. The old Browns were winners. Change the name to the Ravens and they have done well.

    The New Browns should be a lot smarter if they learned from their mistakes. Unfortunately, they haven’t been learning and they don’t seem to be asking anyone for help learning to run a franchise.

    Older Browns fans that remember the old Browns have to be the saddest customers of the Factory of Sadness.

  11. Don’t worry Browns’ fans. When I win powerball tomorrow night, I’m gonna buy the team for you from this schmuck and restore it to greatness.

    Might just not want to cross state lines due to outstanding warrants.

    Haslam stayed home because he’s not allowed to leave town.

    You beat me to it. weep. Good job!

  13. Statistically, it calculated out that Haslam was to stay away from the meeting……and they walk the next batter.

    Born and raised in Cleveland. Lifelong Indians and Browns fan. I do remember the glory days of each. Now, I’m almost 70 and getting too old to expect a SB. I guess I’ll have to enjoy the real Browns (Ravens) glory….even if it makes me vomit.

  15. There comes a time when you think, maybe I should just disown this team. My old man watched jimmy brown in the good old days. We were there when the u-haul vans were fired up and ready to leave. What could have been with Belichick. I keep saying year after year they will figure it out eventually. I don’t believe in curses but this is getting out of hand.

  16. Come on Jimmy, you know better than this! You build an NFL franchise on stability, not willy-nilly!
