I am a giant Arena Football fan.  I love the Soul.  When the Soul played the Desparados, which I called the battle of the undefeateds, there was some, but not much, media attention.

7-0    Dallas Desparados @  8-0 Philadelphia Soul

Wouldn't a picture of a vicious dog cut it? I thought that kinda was the Browns thing. Or would PETA crap their pants over that one?

Sorry, but I love the orange helmets with the brown jerseys (at least the jerseys are the title color).  And there is a stripe on the helmet.

What would you put on the helmet?  A "B"?  I know the name was named after a guy, so that doesn't leave a whole lot to the imagination.

Still love em though, and glad they haven't given in to the new uniform frenzy.

Ya dude i know im a Browns fan and thats the most annoying thing just seeing those bright orange helmets. I mean they need to bring back that old logo with the little guy on it and maybe put that on their helmets.

"I never understood why the Cleveland Browns have an orange helmet"   I think it's because My Browns just didn't want a logo on their helmet.
