Derek McQuaid – Editor

Derek is an avid sports fan who loves all sports, but absolutely lives for football, especially Browns football. In the fall, you can find him planted in front of a television set, sportin’ an Ohio State Buckeyes jersey on Saturday, and his Jim Brown, Cleveland Browns jersey on Sunday. His biggest memory of the Browns, is also his biggest heartbreak. Devasted by the Browns move from Cleveland to Baltimore, he now longs for the days when the Browns are a yearly playoff contender, and a threat for the Super Bowl. He also dreams of finally having that ticket to Cleveland Browns Stadium.

Matt Loede – Columnist

Matt has been in the sports media for over 17 years, with experience covering Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association and of course, the National Football League. On NFL Sunday’s you can hear Matt on National networks like Fox Sports Radio, Associated Press, and other stations around the country. Matt also joined The Washington Post in 2009 as a guest columnist on league hot topics. Born and raised in Cleveland, Matt studies and talks football inside and out, and is anxious to share his thoughts and comments with readers on a daily basis.

J.Paul Norton – Columnist

J. Paul is a technical writer for a large multi-national corporation. His passion though, is sports. Specifically, Cleveland sports. He has been a Browns fan since birth and spent an entire year draped in a #17 Brian Sipe jersey until he retired it to don the #82 of “The Wizard of Oz”. He is consumed by two things; the hope that the Browns will win a Super Bowl and that one day he will beat his wife in Fantasy Football. With enthusiasm, passion and a flare for the written word, J. Paul brings his love for everything Orange and Brown to readers from a fans perspective.
