The former owner of the Cleveland Browns Art Modell is reportedly gravely Ill and in the Hospital with his family at his bed. It is reported that the 87-year-old Modell is experiencing organ failure. If Modell is indeed suffering these problems it is likely that Mr. Modell is near death. Art Modell owned the Browns since becoming the majority owner in 1961 and was responsible for moving the team to Baltimore in 1995. Art Modell was one of the people who are responsible for bringing Football to Monday nights, Modell help start Monday Night football.
Art Modell lost his wife Pat about a year ago and has been it poor health for a while. We wish the Modell the family the very best in this difficult time. There are Browns fans in Cleveland that still hold a grudge against Art Modell for moving the team to Baltimore. Modell hasn’t stepped foot in Cleveland a place he called home for years since he moved the team. Again we wish the Modell family the best in this difficult time….
Modell’s Browns never won a Super Bowl, the team never made it to a Super Bowl. Modell did win the Super Bowl with the Baltimore Ravens, the team he took from Cleveland.
