I still don't know why DB got banned and I think I'm probably the only one from those days who's still out of the loop.

I don't know either.  I've been here since 2007.  Not sure what happened.

I responded to DawgX's inquiry - but to put it bluntly, it's because I was an ignorant, stubborn idiot. Webby gave me multiple opportunities for a path back to the forum and instead of being mature and handling things like the adult I should have been, I chose to be an immature little prick.

Please go post this in the Browns vs. Steelers thread in NFL Gen. LOL.

Done.

Nice work, gents. I've made it an addendum to my even-keeled assessment as to why Mike Tomlin needs to be fired in the Tomlin thread. Please feel welcome to make your own well reasoned arguments in there as to why Tomlin should be on a short leash. I think you two could help push the desirable unbiased narrative in that thread.

Let's go beat these Chiefs. They're not unbeatable and they have holes in the defense. Our biggest challenge will be Travis Kelce, although Tyreek just needs one or two big plays to make a huge impact. 

Best thing we can do is play Vrabel ball and control the clock. Keep Mahomes off the field, sustain long drives, run the football and set up the play action pass. Let's stop rolling out to the left for PA and roll out right, where Baker really thrives. Also, Austin Hooper - catch the frickin' football. 

Our defense played conservative last night because we really had to cover for Robert Jackson, and our secondary is already in shambles. It'd be nice if Andrew Sendejo showed up to make a play - I've only been waiting 17 games for him to do something productive. The interesting thing about Mahomes is that he does better than almost all quarterbacks under pressure - sending an extra guy may not have as big of an impact as we'd like. I'd like to see us ensure Kelce doesn't make big plays, while keeping Tyreek in check. It's going to be tough because all of their offensive weapons can hurt us, which again emphasizes a need to keep our offense on the field. 

This is a winnable game even with the injuries/Covid list we've sustained on defense. We should get Bitonio and Conklin back as well as having our coaching staff present for the game. 

Most importantly our defense is playing hard - not unlike how the Buckeyes defense played against Clemson, forcing 3rd downs and making the opposing offense earn scores - bend but don't break is going to be the philosophy. The culture is different in Cleveland. It's a winning culture. It's a team first culture. These dawgs are HUNGRY. It's up to somebody unexpected to make a play - we need to see more plays like MJ Stewart who has done very well filling in. Notice after he was scored on, he came out the next drive and had two huge tackles on Juju, allowing us to stop the Steelers on 3rd down forcing a punt (which they should have never done). While MJ isn't going to play flawless, we need that short memory because in today's NFL you're going to give up points, it's just a fact. 

I could probably write 2500 more words, but I'm a bit exhausted with this new kiddo. I'm happy to have had the opportunity to share my thoughts with you guys and again, thank you for everything. You guys represent the best fanbase in the world.

That’s why I hate the idea of a lifetime ban. A year, 5, 10, whatever, but “for life” seems excessive.  
 

Lots of dudes were teenagers and early 20’s when they joined.  It’s not crazy to think folks would mature with time.

And in the end, more discussion is better.

I've missed you all over the last several years and I am thankful I was able to spend so much time with many of you back in there day. I know not all of you were fans of me as I was a pretty hard headed 20 year old back in my mod days (hope you can look past that MWil) and I could be a bit of a prick. I made a stupid, stupid, stupid, ignorant comment that got me banned and I had discussions with Webby that fractured our relationship beyond repair. I've accepted that I'll never be allowed back, but don't think I don't check in from time to time to see this forum continue to dominate FF. Webby, I'm sorry for breaking the rules yet again, but I needed to send a message to my guys and gals. 

Thanks to guys like Ditchdigger (one of the OG mods) this forum boomed early on in this websites existence. We used to do Forum wide mocks, fantasy football leagues and had all sorts of fun. I'm sorry that I am no longer able to participate and even though my actions were over a decade ago and I've learned and grown from my mistakes as I've grown out of many bad habits now having a family (we just had another baby girl on January 5th!), I'm accountable for the actions that got me kicked off of the website for being a dumb college kid that said and did dumb things. 

The group of people that I spent my days and nights with in this forum were one of the best things to happen to me and I'll never forget you all. 

This beatdown of Pittsburgh was for Joe (Crakburn). Tracy, if you happen to read this, just know that I think about Joe regularly when Cleveland plays. I'm so happy he was able to meet Joe Thomas. 

If you'd like to reach me, feel free to email me at DefinitelyAGhost1@gmail.com and I'd be happy to stay in touch. I appreciate what you all bring to the forum. Keep making FF Browns great and keep representing the Cleveland Browns. Ditch, Natedawg and mistakey, my phone number hasn't changed if you still have it. Feel free to reach out. 

PS - Thank God for Kevin Stefanski - if we had hired Josh McDaniels, I may have had to leave the fanbase. Andrew Berry and Kevin Stefanski are such difference makers to the culture and it's incredible that we've finally found our front office studs to get the Cleveland Browns in the right direction. 11 win season and a playoff win in a Covid season - I don't even know how to feel or where to put my hands. 

PSS - Biggest way to stop Pat Mahomes is TOP - let's keep him off the field. Raiders won earlier in the year with 30+ rushes and 35 minutes of game time. Avoid offensive three and outs and make big plays, while avoiding the big play on defense. LET'S GO BROWNIES, LET'S GO WOOF WOOF.

DawgX - I was banned for posting something insanely ignorant in the entertainment section of the forum. Webby gave me opportunities to come back, but I was stubborn and instead of taking the right path to ensure I could return, I screwed up and pushed my limits which made my ban lifetime. I then continued to open up accounts, use proxies and try to get back on, but I was never subtle about it. I wish I could go back and handle things differently, but I simply didn't. It was definitely a growth experience. I grew up around really ignorant people and it sadly took me until my late 20's to realize just how screwed up some of the views I had were and it ultimately affected my FF relationship and my relationship with Webby. Hindsight is 20/20. 

A few guys on the forum have spent time with me in person, most notably Ditch. I'd like to think he knows that I'm a good dude at heart with good intentions, but with how combative I could be online and with the idiotic way I handled my ban, I could see why folks may have an alternative view. Granted, when I was a poster and mod on this forum, I was between 18-21 years old. I was a stupid kid. I'm 100% responsible for why I was banned and in no way can I blame Webby for the treatment I've been given. 

I'm just happy to see this Browns forum thriving. I miss and love all y'all. 

Well come back

I'm still waiting on the return of SwissMiss and Estonianzulu (RIP).

SwissMiss is still embarrassed about his love for a QB prospect who’s name escapes me that we didn’t draft.
