Here you go yogi

From 1992-1996, Lombardi headed the Browns’ personnel department, working under head coach Bill Belichick. In that role he was responsible for pro and college personnel decisions, managing the salary cap, handling player contracts and overseeing a staff of scouts. He also advised Belichick on all football matters

AND

Cleveland Browns

After the 1994 season, Rison signed a lucrative free agent contract with Cleveland, where he was expected to become the featured receiving threat for the Browns, who had made the playoffs the year before.[1] The receiver, who had been named to the Pro Bowl in four of his previous six seasons, had career lows in receptions (47), yards (701), touchdowns (3), receptions per game (2.9), and yards per game (43.8). Rison also developed a feud with the Cleveland fans, who were angered over the announcement that the team would be relocating to Baltimore. After a home loss to the Packers, Rison, who had been booed by the fans throughout the game, lashed out, stating, "We didn't make the ******* move. So, for all the booers, **** you too. I'll be glad when we get to Baltimore, if that's the case. We don't have any home-field advantage. I've never been booed at home. Baltimore's our home. Baltimore, here we come."[2] Rison, however, did not make the move with the team to Baltimore as he joined the Jacksonville Jaguars in the offseason.

Just to set the record straight as I was at that ******* game. There was a turnover and the **** stood there waving his arms at the ref as the Packer ran past him. THAT'S why he was boo'ed.

RIP, Left Eye. She had the right idea.
