The gang was back at Shula's Steak 2 as Tribe crazies descended on Independence to cheer the Tribe over the Yankees. There was lots of Browns talk as well! Listen in for free on the OBR's Muni Lot!

We think this program is a real alternative to the normal sports talk fare. AM radio call-in shows tend to be filled with anger and venting after a loss, but the OBR program is fortunate to have some of the most-informed and clear-thinking callers around. It's a show where the callers actually add value to the program rather than just erecting a soapbox for the show hosts.

No one gets cut off, no one gets yelled at. It's sort of strange if you haven't listened to it before, honestly.

Fred Greetham and Jeff Schudel, both of whom have more than two decades of experience covering the Browns, lend their insight to the caller's questions and comment on the analysis offered up by fans.

The OBR radio program has put together the highest-rated shows in the history of SportsTalkCleveland.com, a figure which includes the years when the internet station was aligned with Cleveland's only all-sportstalk station.

Give the podcast a listen and hear for yourself why Browns fans have been turning to an alternative which relies on insight, observation, facts, and the occasional stab at humor rather than loud arguments, fake outradge, and slick soundbites.
