Mike Holmgren Officially Out As Browns President After Yesterday's Win Over Steelers
Published November 26, 2012
TOP DAWG: In Akron, Stephanie Storm writes Browns Owner Jimmy Haslam III prior to yesterday's game spoke with Steelers President Art Rooney II, but "it's clear where Haslam's loyalties now lie." It is "clear that Haslam gets his new adopted town." Browns CB Joe Haden said of Haslam, "He’s just so into it. He comes down here and we’re so happy to see that positive energy. (We) just like to be around the dude." Haslam after the game said, "The biggest thrill was to see who was leaving early -- the Steelers fans." Meanwhile, Haslam said he was “not involved” in the decision to cancel the team's white-flag promotion yesterday. Haslam: "To me, that’s much ado about nothing. The important thing is we won a very important game against one of our big-time rivals" (AKRON BEACON JOURNAL, 11/26). In Pittsburgh, Mark Kaboly writes Haslam "took a page out of the Rooneys’ book when he greeted nearly every player in the locker room immediately following the game" (PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW, 11/26).
