Cleveland Browns Jerseys

Young Jets fan tackled by Browns fan in Muni Lot after game Sunday

Fans passionately support their home team and in Cleveland it is no different. According to Paul Kiska of WEWS 5 in Cleveland, however, things got out of hand last Sunday at the Jets/Browns game.

One Cleveland -area mom was a little concerned when her husband tooke their 8-year-old son, who are both Jets fans, to the game but reasoned that “Clevelanders are such great people. I knew that they would never hurt an 8-year-old kid, never.” Her son wore at Jets jersey to the game.

Things were fine during the game but got rowdy outside. People “were calling him a bad name and throwing food. ” The worst was when they were walking to the parking lot to leave. “As he was walking, holding my son’s hand, a guy from behind tackled him. A drunken Browns fan tackled him and pulled him out of his dad’s hand. He was on the ground crying,” the mom said. Her son’s ankle was scraped at bruised but the father opted to get in the car and get away as soon as possible rather than call the police.

Since she could not confront the bullies in person, the 8-year-old’s mom wrote a letter about the incident to the Cleveland Plain Dealer instead.

Browns vice president of media relations Neal Gulkis called the incident unfortunate and disappointing, and said team officials are looking into the situation. The Muni Lot is operated by the City of Cleveland. Cleveland parks and recreation director Michael Cox told NewsChannel5 rowdy fan behavior, like this incident, is one of the reasons the lot no longer opens at 4 a.m. on game days. The city has been adding extra security to the lot because of some rowdy fans.

    I love this site and the articles. I just have to say something to the writer’s on this site. Who taught you how to write a article?? Every time i read something i have to pause re-read and make sense of what the person is trying to say. Have you ever heard of SPELL CHECK or went to college and actually learned to write correctly? You never have punctuation where you’re supposed too or just not at all. Sorry for the bashing of your articles, but other than that keep up the good stories.

    Wow Josh, don’t hold back, let us know what you really think. LOL. As far as the article, what can I say? One bad apple spoils the bunch. One idiot fan can ruin the reputation of all of us.

  4. Jake says:

    Then there should be plenty of good apples out there to bring this idiot to the forefront so he can be publicly shamed.

    I am reminded of the saying: “You can take the booze out of the a******, but what does that leave you?” What a jerk this guy is, liquored up or not. Do us all a favor, stay home from now on.
