Pikesville, MD, United States (4E Sports) – A YouTube video showing a Cleveland Browns fan urinating beside Art Modell’s grave in Pikesville, Maryland, has received more than 10,000 hits.
The fan in the video, titled “Browns Fan ‘Pays Respects’ to Modell,” was initially dressed in a Baltimore Ravens Ed Reed jersey, which was pulled off to reveal a Browns Lyle Alzado jersey.
He then urinates on Modell’s grave out of the bottom of his pants leg using a catheter and says: “You know, Art, when you … tried to kill the Cleveland Brownie, you didn’t do so good, the Browns fans wouldn’t let you, you piece of s—,” he says.
The video has received more than 10,000 hits.
Modell moved the Browns to Baltimore in 1996 but legal actions had him retaining the Browns’ existing player and staff contracts but under an entirely new franchise named the Baltimore Ravens.
The Browns’ name, history, and archives stayed in Cleveland, and a new Browns team resurfaced in 1999 after a three-year period of “deactivation”.
