Least Powerful People/Things in Cleveland Sports


Not to be outdone by the Cleveland Plain Dealer, who unveiled their not-so-controversial list of most powerful people in Cleveland sports on Sunday, CursedCleveland.com had decided to compile a different list. Well basically we're doing the exact opposite, only with less names, less rationale, and probably less humor, but better writing.

6) CursedCleveland.com - We've been around three weeks and have less hits than FoxSports.com. You could literally type in "CursedCleveland.com" in a google search and not find anything. We stink.

5) Mason Unck, who inexplicably has his own website that can be found on google, It apparently is "going under a major overhaul." Oh really? Is that a page that really needs to be updated? If you've seen one Mason Unck special teams wedge bust, haven't you seen them all? Where's the stat on wedge busting? Shouldn't it be right next to "pass defensed," or "staph's infected?"

4) Greg Brinda, WKNR sports talk show host. I only use the disclaimer b/c I believe in the Arbitron ratings, and if true, he and I have the exact same amount of listeners: zero. The daily opinions of John Antus have more relevance to local sports fans at this point (That's not a John Antus death joke, that's a Greg Brinda stinks joke).

3) Mark Shipiro - although we all like Mark and will continue to pretend that last year never happened, we all have to admit he really doesn't have as much pull as we all originally thought. He can't go after big name free agents b/c of the inflated market. You know what? The market isn't inflated at this point, it's the market. If it happens every year, then the market is actually pretty predictable and therefore, reasonable. As an aside, what do you think Shapiro's reaction was the day he heard about Shooting Sizemore? Stroke? Heart Attack?

2) Ira Newble - Now, I just don't understand how a guy who averages 8 career ppg at a MAC school gets a shot at the NBA? Did he win a reality show that we never heard about? One that pays $3.4 million a year apparently. He better be buttering up the LeBronterage, b/c 2008 is rapidly approaching.

1) Bill Livingston - senior PD columnist and resident windbag, this guy really has his finger on the pulse of the Cleveland Sports fan.. Well only if that pulse belongs to; (too soon for a Casey Coleman joke?). OK, we'll scratch that line. Either way, his articles are as compelling as syphilis.

As usual, the funniest stuff in Cleveland. How do you guys do it? Not only have I bookmarked the page, I'm purchasing a billboard downtown for you guys. You can thank me later.

its a little too soon to be going after Casey Coleman..even if he is a beloved former Browns nobody.

Is it true Bill Livingston ate Hal?

Biting commentary as always. Best site in northeast ohio that makes fun of local sports personalities in a blog format.

Hey, saw the site on the cavs forum, i'm telling all my friends.

Tim Crews said...

Where do I rank on the list?

Damian Suarez said...

If anyone finds this site offensive, then they are losers.

Casey Coleman may be beloved now but he was getting attacked just a few years ago because of his association with the Browns.

Rebecca Somerset said...

Dude, you guys are so negative. are you having a case of the moondays??

ZeppelinFan said...

Ira Newble is awful, and one of the ugliest players in the league, I agree completely, what were the Cavs thinking??!?!?

ColbertReportRules! said...

Come on man, that's harsh, you can't make fun of ira's looks. He can't help that.

On the other hand, so true with the casey coleman reference.
