Video: Here's the Full 80-Minute Browns Fan Documentary from 2004-2005


We posted a short clip from Bleeding Orange and Brown, A Cleveland Tradition a week back. Basically it showed how nothing has changed for Browns fans in the last decade. It's all sadness.

After the post, we got an email from Jeff Haynes, a producer at WVIZ. It was his documentary, and he wondered if we might be interested in the full carnage. "It's pretty terrible, but about as good as the Browns." Damn straight we were interested. So Jeff put the full thing up on YouTube. "Sorry in advance for taking 80 minutes of your life," he wrote to us today. 

Below, the full doc, which starts with the 2004 NFL draft and goes downhill from there. Enjoy?
