Interesting in hearing your take....

...on the ESPN documentary that aired last night (Tuesday) and re-airs this Thursday evening called, "The Band That Wouldn't Die' about the Baltimore Colts Marching Band that endured 12 long years without the NFL until we got the Ravens/Browns.

I know there are real hard feelings from both Baltimore and Cleveland towards the cities that "took" their teams. Baltimore doesn't hate Indy so much as they were just the recipient as Irsay was moving the Colts back then but he continually lied and said he wasn't moving the team.

Modell pleaded with the city then had no other choice in his mind and if not Baltimore, would surely have gone elsewhere. While we understand your anger, it cannot compare to us having the team snuck out of town in the middle of a snowy night and being overlooked for expansion (Jacksonville, Carolina- are you kidding me!?) for so many years. Two were long enough for the Browns fans, but could you stand to see your name and colors gone as well for over a decade with no NFL team to root for?

In case you're interested, here's the link to the article I did on Baltimore Beatdown about this documentary. Open to hearing your thoughts on it as both us, you and Indy should be the ones who could relate the most.
