It has been a stellar year of sport for the city of Cleveland. A LeBron James-led Cavaliers side won their first ever NBA title in June, while the Indians baseball side are just one win away from breaking a 68-year drought by winning their first world series since 1948.

On the flip side, however, there remains the Browns.

Cleveland's NFL team entered this morning's home clash with the New York Jets sitting on a 0-7 record this season, while their overall losing streak was sitting on 10 games, with their last victory coming against the San Francisco 49ers in December last year.

In fact, since 16 November 2014, the Browns have only won five of their previous 38 fixtures, including pre season matches.

However, masses of Browns fans still turn up to watch their side at FirstEnergy Stadium, as was the case for this morning's match against the Jets.

Fans within the 'Dawg Pound' section set out to highlight their support of their struggling side, unfurling a banner saying 'DAWG POUND'.

At least, that's what it was intended to say.

Instead, it read 'GPODAWUND'.


The misspelled sign perhaps foreshadowed the forthcoming result, as the Browns once again succumbed to their opposition, going on to lose 31-28.

So while Cleveland may be the city of champions for now, there's still a bit of the same old Cleveland still lingering.
