Browns fans mark season of flawless futility with parade

Browns Winless Parade Football

It's actually wonderful that Browns fans mustered the will to proceed with a parade. So Browns fans are celebrating whatever they can, including the second 0-16 season in National Football League history.

"It was that kind of macabre-type humor that I think the Browns fans have", organizer Chris McNeil told ESPN.

The parade included a pickup truck sponsored by a funeral home with a casket on the back and several Browns-painted buses with signs criticizing team management and owner Jimmy Haslam.

The parade also included Browns' quarterback graveyard, with faux headstones for every starting quarterback the team has had since 1999.

McNeil reportedly took donations, and will give approximately $14,000 to the Cleveland Food Bank.

It's not quite the "1.3 million" who showed up for the Cleveland Cavaliers championship parade in 2016. Gaslighted by 18 years of football that has produced a single one-and-done playoff season (in 2002) and a 4-44 record over the last three years, 1-31 over the last two, and perfection (sort of) in 2017, it would be very easy for them to simply glaze over and wait for prosperity that may never come - especially without making major changes to the way business is now being done. Obviously, we want the same thing as our fans; winning results.

Fans have a right to be upset, and if throwing a parade to cap off a winless season helps them blow off some steam in a civil manner, then we're all for it.

Cleveland defensive lineman Emmanuel Ogbah was highly critical of fans who attended the parade, saying the event only caused the players further embarrassment.
