Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know
Sports in 2020 has been like nothing any of us has ever seen before. Major League Baseball is pumping in crowd noise and the NBA is playing in front of giant video screens meant to look like fans in the crowd.
These sports might not be the only ones played in front of no fans as the NFL might have to follow suit if the COVID-19 pandemic continues at this pace. And if so, there could be fake noise pumped into FirstEnergy Stadium for Cleveland Browns games.
Today’s Daily Dawg Tags looks at that very possibility and examines what that could be like.
Cleveland Browns News
“Major League Baseball wants some type of background noise and has even sent out generic sound to be used by teams. I do agree with you, at times it’s annoying. They need to figure out the volume. The same for the NFL.
In football, no fans will make it easier for visiting teams who won’t have their snap counts lost in the roar of the home crowd. They can have a bigger impact on the game for that reason. Players now should appreciate fans more than ever…I hope!”
Social media is full of people who aren’t fans of the manufactured crowd noise in baseball. And while the NBA deserves credit for putting the fans in the “stands” virtually, it isn’t the same. 2020 is going to be weird no matter how it ends up going. But as long as we have football, I am good with whatever they have to do.
“The Cleveland Browns and Mano’s Wine announced a new partnership today that will provide Browns fans an opportunity to purchase commemorative Browns-themed wine bottles, which are available online now.”
It’s hard not to look at these wine bottles and not be impressed. They’re pretty awesome and worth a look.
“Receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry were among the full complement of Browns veterans reporting for training camp at the Browns facility on mandatory reporting day Tuesday.
All players showed up, and there were no surprises.”
The Browns star players are all reporting and it’s getting close to time for us to see some real football. There were a couple of players who opted out, which is more than understandable. But the big names were all there.
It’s still early to think about this, but with Patrick Mahomes buying into the Kansas City Chiefs ownership group, there’s a chance Baker Mayfield could do the same with the Cleveland Indians down the road — or at least that’s what Joel Cade asks about in his latest piece.
Offensive linemen Drew Forbes and Drake Dorbeck were the two Browns to opt-out on Wednesday which does hurt their depth at a position of need.
