By: Al Terry
If you are a Cleveland Browns fan, you surely are one lucky guy. Hardly any fan is unaware that the Browns have been around for a long long time and have won laurels throughout their history. Browns tickets for sale online offer great resources for the many great fans.

The Browns saga began in 1946 when Micky McBride decided to set up a team with head coach Paul Brown. Even then, Paul had a well deserved reputation as a tough and result oriented coach. The city then had two team - the Rams and the yet to be named, Browns. As it so happened, the Rams decided to re-locate to Los Angeles and the Browns were the sole team ruling the Cleveland roost before long.

There was quite a contest to name the new team. Initial choices included names such as the Panthers (ruled out since it was the naming of an earlier team with a long losing streak). The contest finally settled on the Brown Bombers as the name. This was then shortened to the 'Browns' for media convenience. There is a school of thought that the name was inspired by the surname of the head coach. Although this was never really confirmed, subsequent events did show that Paul Brown did have an emotional stake in the name and the fortunes of the Browns.

Credit must go to Paul Brown for the great performance that the Browns turned in. The Browns won every league championship in their inaugural year and the next year, they achieved even higher standards and became the first team to finish a season without a single defeat or a tie. This was a full 24 years before the feat could be repeated by a team in the NFL. The Browns' wins became so predictable that fans started to stay away from matches because they knew the outcome in advance.

There was a major upheaval in the fortunes of the team in 1961 when it was purchased by Art Modell. Art did not see eye to eye with Paul Brown on many matters, including the selection of players. It is also possible that Paul had peaked as far as his coaching methods were concerned and success was not so easy to come by. Matters soon came to a head in 1962 and Paul Brown was shown the door.

Paul's exit did not really affect the fortunes of the team. They continued with their winning habits all through the next few years. Paul went on to set up the Bengals in 1966 and the two teams continued an intense rivalry for many seasons.

Naturally enough, the Browns have seen many ups and downs. There were periods in their history when the Browns seemed to flounder. However, the team is now on a rise and has begun to turn in great performances. In fact, Browns tickets for sale is not so easy anymore. If you want to get your tickets confirmed, it is best that you purchase them early. Getting tickets online is the best method of going about to get them and it assures you that you will get the tickets of your choice (if you are prompt).
