    Apparently, this quote has been attributed to him:

    "If the only reason you come to the ballpark is to watch a winning team,we don't want you to come."

    Honestly don't know where this came from, but wow, if true.

    That sounds more like something that would have came out of Holmgren's mouth or even Mr. Durdur.

    To me, that sounds like some urban legend made up by some poster on a message board. I doubt any of the organizations had some one make such a statement. It just seems highly unlikely.

    I heard that someone else heard that he said that. Not sure if it's true....but I heard it from someone. Can't remember who though.






































































    Great thread.

    It's on the internet so it must be true!

    This is a non-story unless it can be corroborated, even if it can be I still don't care.

    Herm Edwards went 54-74 as a head coach...and that video doesn't make Shapiro's quote anymore of a story.

    Isn't the goal in sports to WIN GAMES?

    Or is it to make progress in terms of Cleveland ....

    The point of the front office is to put a good product on the field and make the fan experience as exciting as possible regardless of what they're doing on the field.\

    Not sure his quote had much to do with the product on the field as much as it's going to come off.

    But at the end of the day, Cleveland fans aren't going to buy tickets regardless of the product on the field...many have been more than clear on that.

    If true, just more lack of accountability. Putting it on the fans, rather than looking in the mirror and seeing the terrible job the FO has done.

    And I'd assume this will be the out of context response from people who didn't listen to the interview.
