Lee Evens knows all to well about Browns fans. He remembers 1995 when the Browns left Cleveland to relocate in Baltimore and what the effect was on diehard Browns fans. Evans was in high school at the time in the Cleveland area. The Cleveland fans have a special dislike and a bad taste in their mouth when it comes to the Baltimore Ravens. For Browns fans who still feel the effects of Model taking the Browns out of Cleveland this game has a special meaning.
No matter what the Browns record is, the Ravens know they are in for a “Dawgfight” when they enter onto the field in Cleveland. This game has extra meaning to Cleveland fans purely for the fact of what took place back in 95. Cleveland fans are some of the most loyal fans in all of professional sports and the Cleveland Browns can count on the 12th man today once the game starts.
Its been more than fifteen years since the moving of the team, the dislike of what took place is real and it always brings special meaning to the trip back to Cleveland for the Ravens. The Baltimore Ravens know the fans in Cleveland have long memories and for Lee Evans who lived through the move he knows first hand of what takes place in the trip back. Today the Ravens enter into a Hostile environment. For Browns fans a win over the Ravens would be an early Christmas gift. Lets hope they get it. Go Browns!!!
