Ex-Ravens Owner Art Modell Dies At Age 87
Posted By: Sweets 1 Week Ago
  #1    

One of the most influential owners in the history of the NFL, Art Modell helped mold the foundation of the league.

The innovative Modell, whose reputation was forever tainted when he moved his franchise from Cleveland to Baltimore, died early Thursday. He was 87.

David Modell said he and his brother, John, were at their father's side when he ''died peacefully of natural causes.''

'''Poppy' was a special man who was loved by his sons, his daughter-in-law Michel, and his six grandchildren,'' David Modell said. ''Moreover, he was adored by the entire Baltimore community for his kindness and generosity. And, he loved Baltimore.''

Modell was among the most important figures in the NFL as owner of the Cleveland Browns, who became the Ravens after he took the team to Baltimore in 1996 - a move that hounded him the rest of his life.

I hope in 20 years they dig him up and move his corpse to another city.

Must have been "hounded" by the dog pound.

RIP.

RIP Art. I was raised to hate you but I don't. I don't understand the hatred Cleveland got the Brownies back.
