Reporter Asks Browns Owner Jimmy Haslam If Team Is Being Run By The Three Stooges (VIDEO)

By Joe Lucia, Awful Announcing

Monday's firing of Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski after just one season on the job has resulted in a lot of derision being thrust upon Cleveland's front office. In a Monday morning press conference to announce the dismissal, a local reporter asked Browns owner Jimmy Haslam if the team was being run by the Three Stooges, a reference to Haslam, team president Joe Banner, and general manager Michael Lombardi.

What a brilliant line from reporter Dan DeRoos, who claimed that he wasn't a sports guy, but a news guy. DeRoos then started reading bitter and angry Facebook comments from fans before asking his question to Haslam.

The gauntlet has been laid down.
