Cleveland Browns – The Ultimate Put-Down

Sometimes, less is more. This response to a complaint to the American NFL side the Cleveland Browns is the shortest and cleverest I have ever seen. There is no guarantee that this exchange is genuine but in this case, we appear to have scans of the original correspondence so it may just be the real thing.  At the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter. If anyone associated with the Browns is able to confirm that this exchange of letters actually took place however, I would be very grateful to hear it.

The letters were allegedly exchanged long before the current players were even born and were between a Mr Dale O. Cox, a lawyer, and a season ticket holder of the Cleveland Browns and the Cleveland Stadium Corporation. Mr Cox was unhappy about a growing trend amongst Cleveland Browns fans to make paper aeroplanes out of the match programme…

The reply from the Stadium Corporation came from their own legal counsel – a Mr. James N. Bailey – and was pure, unadulterated genius:
