WIRE: YOUR YEAR-END RECAP FIX
"Our readers need a year-end recap, stat! Stop the presses!" Apparently the local papers feel an urgency to provide year-end recaps, because that's what we get today in the local papers. Well, either that, or the beat writers are just trying to wrap things up before they go on the extravagant company-paid cruises that their benevolent bosses provide them. Tony Grossi, Pat McManamon, Mike McLain, Sean McClelland, and Jeff Schudel all come through with some Browns commentary to end the season.
We elbow the beat writers quite a few times during the year, but in all honesty these are generally good guys who have to do a job covering a team that doesn't want to be covered. They're kept away from the team and doing their job except for carefully controlled glimpses. They put up with tempermental players and sometimes-more-tempermental fans like us to do their jobs. Enjoy a break when you can get one guys. The BTNG Crew will be here when you get back to provide a daily commentary on your work. (AB)
BUSY BUSY WEBMASTER
Yes, I've been running amok around the site, making a lot of sweeping changes that shouldn't actually show up much to you. If you see anything that looks goofy (this site has over 1,000 web pages, and I did stuff that changed most of them), feel free to drop me a line at email@example.com. (AB)
CP BITES THE DUST, AB HURTING
The slightly-less clueless (based on regular season records) are about to be upset by the slightly-more clueless as this weeks wildcard playoff draws to a close. I picked the Jets, not knowing that John Abraham would get the flu and the Jets pass rush would disappear. Way to step up, Ellis. Sheesh. Now I need a Packers/Ratbirds sweep to stay alive. Arrrgh. CP made the horrific mistake of picking the Bucs and, based on remaining picks, is now eliminated. Because of this early exit, his punishment is to respond to the 500 emails that I have needing responses. Yeah, I suck. (AB)
