"Most people I have found who don't like Art Modell dislike him because he fired Paul Brown.  My reaction to that is, No. 1, I heard all the talk, but the fact is I wasn't around at that time in the early 1960s...I wasn't going to form my opinion of Art Modell based on that."

********************************

"I watched him last year standing on the podium after his Ravens won the Super Bowl and he looked as though he was a frightened man."

********************************

"Art never lied to me.  I never had a contract dispute.  I held out one time, but I held out for legitimate reasons, not because of Art Modell."

********************************

"He looked at me with tears in his eyes and said, "I just cut you."  I said, "I know, but I still want to thank you."
