Default OT: Who's Worse? Lebron or Modell?

Poll Coming.

I can't believe he went through all that just to slap Cleveland fans in the face like that. I don't know what worse. What Lebron did or what Art Model with the Colts.

Modell is way worse. Players don't owe a city anything--teams certainly do.

Enough time has passed to make the Modell act a little less ire inducing. Lebron is easily worse because he turned his back on an already cursed city. But not only did he turn his back on them he sharted on them with his ego induced Lebronathon.

They guy will never be on the level of MJ, Magic, or Oscar. Heck I dislike him more than Kobe now and I never thought that possible.

This is exactly what I'm thinking. Especially the kobe part. But worded much better.

Modell was much worse but the passage of time and how fresh lebronathon is distorts the severity of the two situations.

Lebron is worse because Modell supposedly had serious financial issues and couldn't get a stadium built. And we all know what kind of a dump they were playing in.

It wasn't a Press Conference, it was an hour-long primetime special.

**** Lebron.

Modell was worse. Taking away an entire team (which, like the cavaliers of today, were the pride of Cleveland) from a city during the night, is worse than losing one player, however talented the player. Removing a team is like taking away part of the identity of a city, and all who live in the city.

It's pretty tragic if you think about it, how not only have the Cleveland sports franchises managed to suck on a fairly consistent basis since Jim Brown retired, but how when any of the franchises manage to get close to becoming a champion (the 80's AFC Champ. games, the 97' world series, and the cavaliers recent success) they fail in often very heartbreaking fashion. On top of this, they get events like the Modell move and the Lebron press conference. It's kind of a wonder that the city of Cleveland hasn't just given up on pro sports yet.

But still, Bob Irsay takes the cake if you're talking about biggest sports a-holes. He took over a championship-winning team, stripped it of it's stars, then orchestrated the first relocation of a well-established and supported NFL team to a geographically distant location. He didn't even let Baltimore retain the official history and legacy of the Colts while they resided within the city, something that Modell at least didn't take from Cleveland.

Art Modell was a coward for what he did. A special about LeBron is just what the media and, seemingly, the public wanted.

Modell. Not close.

He took away a championship-winning team because of money.

LeBob left cleveland for less money to win a championship because the Cavs management doesn't seem to really know what the **** they're doing.

YES, he quit on Cleveland. He was a free agent. How dare he leave as a free agent!

/yawn.

Modell. Cleveland is still a football town FIRST, everything else second. And you're kidding yourself if you think the people of Cleveland wouldn't trade LeBob for a Lombardi trophy right now, this second.

Modell for being a p***Y.


Lebron gave that city seven years and he wants to try something new. He was upfront about it, weighed all the options and came forward with his decision publicly. I applaud him for doing what he believes is in his best interests. He'll get to play with great players and will make a crap load more in endorsements. He'll also get to live in Miami and not the hole of a city Cleveland. I think Lebron did what was best for him and his family and that's all anyone can ask.

And let's be clear: Lebron doesn't owe Cleveland anything. Weather you think he's the greatest and got burned out, or you subscribe to the theory he's overrated and choked in the playoffs, both sides should agree he's better leaving. If he's really such a "loser" and "bum" then Cleveland won't miss him and should be happy to see him gone. If he's been held back by a bad team in a crappy town, then you should be happy to see him get another chance.

Modell didn't leave Baltimore, he left Cleveland for Baltimore. Irsay left Baltimore.

I totally agree with you......if it was the other way around. Lebron should have left in the middle of the night and Modell should have and the presser. Because you're right Lebron doesn't owe Cleveland or any other city anything.
