• Mike Brown received millions in “general manager” bonuses, even though the team has no such title.

VonderBrink testified the team paid a “general manager” bonus of $1,237,000 in 1999 and $1,947,695 in 2001. Brown testified in the trial he received a bonus every year since he took over running the team in 1991.



The guy that turned down the Saints entire draft so we can get Akili Smith has been getting over $1 Mil per season since 1991?

I swear Mike Brown is the third Anti-Christ...

That sucks Jom. One of the many reasons I have stayed a Steelers fan for so long is our ownership.

I still predict you change to our side someday.

I'll take either over Mike Brown...

Meh, I figure I'm in my 20's still so I'll be around long after someone puts a wooden steak into Mike Brown's heart and we have competent ownership again...

They are each an anti-Christ for their own individual reasons.

Belichick, since he obviously sold his soul somewhere between flaming out in Cleveland and spurning the Jets for New England.

Davis, because he is obviously an undead sea monster.

And Brown, well, I guess I don't have to explain why Mike Brown is the anti-Christ to you.

I still can't believe that Brown made Marvin take Chris Henry back after Marvin said that the Chris Henry had run out of chances and had to be cut and would not be back. Even more than that, I can't believe Marvin took it.

Bengals fans should start looking into taking out a contract on him. Cut out the Skyline Chili once a week and pool that money.

What I can't believe is why he would still want a job in Cincy. :P Just for you Jom... :moon :P

It's all good, you'll come to the right side someday. As Darth Vader says, "I can feel your anger, your emotions betray you..."

Since both Cleveland and Cincinnati have pretty much sucked since Paul Brown died in 1991 you may want to start thinking about the real possibilty that he may have cursed the entire state of Ohio with a lifetime of crappy pro football.
