Angry restaurant owner ready to give Browns another chance

Angry restaurant owner ready to give Browns another chance

MAYFIELD HEIGHTS, OH (WOIO) - Darryl Margolis banned Browns games on the TV at Play Arcade and Kitchen in Mayfield back in early December.

"I was so mad after the game when they lost that I just started typing," Margolis said.

He was so angry over how the team was playing that he also sent Browns owner Jimmy Haslam a letter.

But what we have now learned is Haslam actually wrote him back.

Margolis received the letter "about a week later, basically explaining that he and Dee were just as disappointed as I was and Cleveland deserved better."

And because of this and the draft, Margolis now feels the team is headed in the right direction.

"I am very happy right now, I think the whole moneyball thing is a good experiment," he said, referencing the new members of the Browns front office and their past in Major League Baseball.

So on Friday he will allow the draft to air on all his televisions.

"We turned on the draft with the Browns on Thursday night and we will do it again tonight at 7," he said Friday.

Back to the letter -- in it, Haslam says "We are working very hard to field the kind of team that Cleveland and NE Ohio so richly deserves."

And Darryl believes him, even though he doesn't see a Browns winning season anytime soon.

"I don't think we are winning next year or the year after that, but we are making moved that are going to help us in the future," Margolis said.
