    Yes it's that time of year, the dog days of summer, when just about everything goofy gets posted because very little of anything interesting or important is being written about in NFL articles these days. Maybe you can come up with a better mascot for the Browns and they'll change their minds and use yours instead. How about a cat instead?

    Btw Florio: the term "Euthanasiaville" is in extremely poor taste for us pet owners.

    Browns are getting a new mascot

    Like many teams, the Browns will have a mascot. Unlike many teams, Cleveland’s mascot won’t take off his suit when it’s time to go home.

    Per Chris Fillar of 92.3 The Fan in Cleveland, Browns V.P. of marketing Kevin Griffin said that the Browns will use a live bulldog as the team mascot this season. His name will be “Swagger.”

    Given the owner’s propensity for replacing key employees, it’s unknown whether Swagger will simply be fired if he doesn’t fulfill his duties to the satisfaction of management — or whether Swagger will be taking a one-way ride to Euthanasiaville.

    No pressure, Swagger. No pressure at all.

    Yeah, I had to make the call for one of the family's dogs to be put to sleep just a month or two ago.

    Grow up, dumbass.

    She lived a long life, so it's not too sad.

    Still... extremely inappropriate.

    1st high-profile Brown for a few years that hasn't crapped on the grass. In other news Trent Richardson is the Browns 6th highest salary cap hit in 2014. :) There's always someone worse off.

    How so? Doesn't the team that trades for him also take the cap hit?

    At least the Colts are getting SOMETHING out of it though. For the Browns, it's just major dead money.

    Since my little brother is a Georgia Tech grad... I hate bulldogs. This makes me hate the lovable loser browns now too.

    The Dog Pound... isn't that were dogs get euthanized? Poor dogs.

    No. You trade for the current contract. Bonuses and money paid out previously count against the team that paid out that money. If you were able to trade cap hits you would creating a cash market for Draft picks. Teams could trade overpaid players AND a high pick to a team with cap space for just a low pick in return. Effectively the team would be cutting a player it didn't want and selling the cap hit. If we traded Bradford the receiving team would get Bradford's 2 year contract for $14M in 2014 and $13M in 2015. The Rams are on the hook for his remaining $3.5M cap hits in 2014 and 2015 regardless of who he plays for.

    Gentlemen the Rams have not had a winning season since 2003 and have not tasted post season since 2004. Let the Cleveland Brown fans worry about their franchise so as Ram fans we can focus on ours.

    So if the dog craps a turd during game day, does that also become part of the new mascot?

    It'd be more fitting to their name and the wasteland that is Cleveland championships in well....anything. :whistle:
