Cleveland fans are expecting big things from the Browns this season. Baker Mayfield and OBJ are supposed to lead the team to the promised land, right?
Well, things are certainly off to a rocky start. Tennessee dominated the Browns on Sunday in a 43-13 blowout.
Mayfield had an ugly game, throwing three interceptions. The last of the three resulted in a pick-six with the game already out of hand.
After the score, Titans’ defensive back Malcolm Butler went to celebrate with a Tennessee fan in the stands. He was welcomed with an unfortunate surprise from a nearby Browns fan.
The fan proceeded to douse Butler and several of his teammates with beer. Another fan attempted to push the players off the wall.

Browns fans aren’t used to being in this situation. With OBJ’s addition, there are high expectations in Cleveland — expectations these fans aren’t used to dealing with.
After years of being the laughing stock of the NFL, the team finally has some talent. But too much off-the-field drama might just poison the team’s potential success.
Either way, this fan’s actions are completely out-of-line. You don’t have to be happy about losing — but pouring a beer on opposing players is where a line has to be drawn.
