When it comes to beloved fan bases in the NFL, the argument can be made that no team has put their fans through more disappointment than the Cleveland Browns over the years as they’re normally seen as the laughing stock in the league. In fact, the Browns have let their fans down so many times–one fan decided to one final shot at the organization before passing away.
55-year-old Scott E. Entsminger recently passed away on July 4 and if you don’t believe he was one of the biggest Browns fans in the world–just look at what was mentioned in his obituary.
“He respectfully requests six Cleveland Browns pall bearers so the Browns can let him down one last time.”
It’s one thing to be disappointed and frustrated over your beloved football team, but to take a shot at a team like the Browns after you’ve passed away–that has to hurt a little bit. Clearly, Cleveland let Entsminger down one too many times over his lifespan and from the organization’s perspective–it has to be difficult not to feel at least a little awkward reading these comments from someone who is no longer with us.
Unfortunately for Entsminger and other Browns fans, the team could be in for another long season in 2013 considering the AFC North is expected to be one of the toughest divisions in football. Who knows, maybe a joke like this is just what Cleveland needed to motivate themselves to be contenders next season–but it’s highly unlikely.
