CLEVELAND (AP) - Two longtime Browns season ticket-holders organizing a protest at their disgust with the team's decade of losing will meet with Cleveland owner Randy Lerner.
Two fans, Mike Randall and Tony Schafer, have been urging fans to stay away from their seats for the opening kickoff of the Nov. 16 nationally televised game against Baltimore. The pair have a meeting scheduled with Lerner on Tuesday morning at the team's headquarters.
Randall, who's also known as "Dawg Pound Mike," plans to present Lerner with over 2,000 e-mails he has received from fans since announcing the "walk-in" protest. Randall says he hopes to persuade the ultra-private Lerner to speak directly to Cleveland's disappointed fan base.
The Browns dropped to 1-7 on Sunday with a 30-6 loss in Chicago.
