By now we all know that former Browns QB Bernie Kosar likes to speak his mind while doing the Browns preseason telecasts. Now Browns CEO Joe Banner is trying to do to Kosar the very same thing he has done to the Cleveland Media.

Banner likes to control things, he is a bit of a control freak. He controls the media by taking away broadcasting rights and giving them to other stations. Even though the Browns were hosted on major Cleveland radio stations for years, Banner found a way to silence the team’s critics.

Now Banner is trying to control the things that come out of Bernie Kosar’s mouth. This is America, there is freedom of speech in this country. Kosar is entitled to his opinion and he should be able to express it when he wants to.

Kosar’s viewpoints during last Thursday nights Browns game against the Rams have caused a major up-stir.  What’s wrong with an analyst voicing his opinion? It is fresh to hear how a guy truthfully feels. The fans should get behind Kosar and support his freedom of speech. It is not often you get to hear how a guy really feels.

Banner should keep his nose out of this situation. This is 2013 and if Kosar wants to voice his opinions he should be able to without facing Joe Banner.

Banner said Kosar’s conduct was unacceptable. You really think so Joe? I thought his comments was more entertaining than anything I’ve heard in a long time watching football.

Here is more of what Banner had to say; “We don’t condone the personal and unprofessional approach that Bernie took with some of his comments during the broadcast Thursday night.” “We’ve spoken to Bernie, he understands that, and we would expect the situation is resolved moving forward. We’ve also reached out to the Rams organization and have shared those same sentiments.”

The team made Kosar call Rams coach Jeff Fisher and apologize Sunday. What a bunch of babies. Kosar tells the truth about how he feels and the people in charge can’t take it. Leave Bernie alone and let him do his job.

Kosar knows football and he should be entitled to his opinions.

    You should look up the definition on free speech. It does not mean you can sawy whatever you want and have no consequences. It means the govt can’t imprision you. Ugh come on man.

        I think Bernie would have been fine….but say forgive me father for I have sinned have to watch Clemons play. Kinda out of bounds there even if it was funny. The real kicker though he says the receivers parents should be embarrassed. Wow that’s ironic but I will leave it alone.

    It seems the day of truth and honest days are over.We got to watch we say, what we do, and how we react. In business, management doesn’t believe the white collar worker should socialize with the blue collor worker.My dad brought me up that honesty is the best policy. Now it’s a world of greed and power.
