  • 8-year-old Jets fan tackled by Browns fan

    Wooooo..classic

    Video
    CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Tuesday's edition of The Plain Dealer included a letter to the editor from Danielle Brennan of Painesville Township.

    WEWS Channel 5 has telecast an interview with Brennan, and ESPN.com has reported the story, which developed after the Cleveland Browns lost to the New York Jets, 26-20 in overtime, on Sunday.

    Brennan's letter to the editor, published in Tuesday's The Plain Dealer:

    Our family has made Cleveland our home for almost 12 years, and we tell everyone we know it is a wonderful city full of great people. Today, I'm ashamed to live here.

    As a birthday gift, my husband and 8-year-old son attended the Browns-Jets game. The Jets are their favorite team. What started out as an exciting day ended with an injured little boy.

    We knew there would be hecklers, but never would I have thought that my son would be called an expletive to his face or have hot dogs thrown at him. But the worst was when he was tackled by a drunken adult male in the parking lot. Yes, tackled! Can you imagine the fear that went through his mind as this buffoon landed on him with full force? It makes me sick to see the very large scrape and bruising he received.

    Shame on you, Browns fans! No matter how intense the game or who the opponent is, kids are off limits. End of story. I wonder if those repulsive fans were able to sleep Sunday night, knowing they assaulted a child. I know I didn't.

    -DANIELLE BRENNAN

    WEWS now reports that the Jets have offered to fly the Brennan family to New York to watch a Jets game from a suite. WEWS adds:

    The family said they appreciate the offer, but they've graciously declined and they are done with the story. They said they just want the Muni Lot to be safer.

    Lies. Cleveland fans would never do anything so childish and stupid.

      Unfortunately, every fan base has morons like this that think tackling an 8 year old or something along those lines somehow means their team wins the game.

      I think the bigger story here, if it's true, is that the dad did nothing to the guy who tackled his kid or informed any of the bazillion cops around the stadium either and this whole thing happened in front of a giant crowd of people?

        Where the **** was the dad in all this? This is why pansy ass men shouldn't have children. If that were my child or my niece, that dude would be eating from a straw right now.

          Makes the whole story sound pretty ******* fishy, but we should probably make a generalization about Jets fans and stereotype them all as a bunch of pussies.

            I'd like to think the same. But what if the dude was swole and with a bunch of his drunk friends?

            What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
            they get smoked.

              There was a giant crowd of people around... jersey or not, the guy who did the tackling would've been stomped by the crowd.

                This times a million.

                I didn't see any really bad things when I was at the game besides ass hole chants, and the only real fight I've ever seen were a bunch of Browns fans beating the **** out of each other right in front of me in the Dawg Pound.

                Every fan base has idiots, I'm not excusing tackling an 8 year old because there's no doubt in my mind he did nothing but I'm curious as to what happened... Like did he go to tackle the dad because the dad was being a prick and knock over the kid or what?

                      This story confirms my theory that Ohio is unnecessary.

                            It must be nice to live in Texas...Try getting a CCW in LA County.

                            I also would like to know what happened but I also want to know why the dad hasn't come out and said anything. If the drunk guy intended to hurt the kid then that's screwed up but I have a feeling it was some drunk guy who bumped into the kid on purpose as they were walking out in a crowd and the kid fell. Still an asshole thing to do but I don't know about tackling...

                              Should've had James Harrison there to protect him. He likes to tackle annoying Browns fans.

                              Props to clover_jeez!
