The Browns May Look Like Sh*# This Year. Literally…

…Now, Imagine He’s All Brown

Our friends at Waiting for Next Year are all about Cleveland sports. So, it is no surprise that they are all over what is perhaps the biggest story to come out of Cleveland Brownsville this offseason (not really, but roll with it). WFNY is reporting on the very real possibility (if recent rumblings are true) of at least one (and maybe multiple) “brown out(s)” for the Cleveland Browns this season. Yes, you heard that right. Imagine those luscious dark chocolate pants Romeo and crew broke out for last year’s exhibition game against the Giants. Now, picture them paired with the traditional brown jerseys. Craptastic, right?

I’ve never been a big proponent of the all-solid unis to begin with. It makes players and teams look like giant pieces of fruit – blueberries, apples, bananas, you get the idea. Luckily, the monochrome trend has less frequently made its way into the NFL. When it does, I can handle the black get-ups of say the Ravens and Jags but not a whole lot else. So, one kind of has to question the sanity of even considering a shoulder-to-toe brown outfit. Black? Intimidating. Brown? Poop.

As WFNY explains:

“We already have a team that is touted as one of the league’s worst. Bad coaching, quarterback play and staph infections are already league-wide jokes. Why add something else to the list of things for which we can be mocked?”

Yes, it’s truly an awful idea and everything humanly possible should be done to ensure it never happens. Brownies management and its coaching staff must do their fans a favor and keep the brown pants in the closet. Because, should that brown-on-brown combo ever makes its way on the field, it would be a complete sh#@show. Sorry, it was just hanging up there.

    I am an avid Browns fan and I like the idea of seeing the Brown jersey/Brown pants combo. Why? Because it doesn't matter what you wear as long as you play good and win more than you lose. If they break out the BROWN OUT in 2009 and spank a team do you really think it will be a joke to other teams? I don't think so.

    ROR. i hear ya. as a fan, i wouldn't care too much if team came out and dominated no matter what they wore. besides maybe pink…coming at this more from an aesthetic point of view, and all brown is pretty ugly. just saying…
