One Response to “Hacksaw’s Headlines–Monday”

  1. Marc Fishel says:

    Lee, as a former resident of Cleveland, it pains me that the refs missed the helmet-to-helmet penalty in the Browns-Chiefs game. Though not as bad as the Byner fumble in Denver decades ago, this is still another poke in the eye to Cleveland fans IMHO. To the Browns’ credit, however, they did not let this blatant error deter them in showing the country, and the Chiefs, what they were capable of doing. To quote Cleveland’s battle cry, “Wait until next year!”

    Kind regards.
