At the age of 97, lifelong Cleveland Browns fan not happy about Trent Richardson being traded

Senior volunteers at Canton Football HOF

Bette Mizer loves to talk with anyone about her beloved Cleveland Browns, but she's not happy about the decision to trade Trent Richardson.

Mizer is 97-years-old so she has plenty of experience when it comes to dealing with the ups and downs of the brown and orange.

"We just lost Trent Richardson who we just hired this last year and he's gone far away to the Indianapolis Colts," Mizer said.

Mizer, of Massillon, volunteers once a week at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton. She greets visitors, asking them which NFL team is their favorite.

There is no doubt which team she likes the most. Her lifelong love affair dates back more than 90 years, when at the age of 6 she started going to Browns games with her father.

When the Browns won their last championship in 1964, Mizer was in the stadium.

"The mood was fantastic. Why wouldn't it be?" she said.

Mizer's mood wasn't great when she learned of the Richardson trade.

The running back was becoming her favorite player after the Browns didn't re-sign her previous favorite.

"I always liked Phil Dawson, the kicker, but now he's gone," she said.

Mizer explained that she'll always support the Browns, adding that "she's too old to change teams now."

She hopes the new regime has a plan in place to bring home a Super Bowl before she turns 100.

And then, she repeated a familiar refrain known by Browns fans across the globe: "Wait until next year."
