Cleveland City Councilman Mike Polensek specifically asked New Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam about retractable roof for Browns Stadium.
BEREA, Ohio - Browns new team owner Jimmy Haslam was introduced Friday in Berea. Haslam was impressive in his 27-minute question and answer session, which he did standing.
Haslam was ready from the beginning, saying "The Haslam family is 100 percent committed to making the Browns a winner, we will do whatever it takes."
Haslam, a minority owner in the Pittsburgh Steelers, was also known for his famous line, "We are 1000 percent Steelers fans." Haslam said Friday, "I understand the rivalry between Pittsburgh and Cleveland and we want to return that rivalry."
Haslam also went on to say his family had talked about sitting in the stands for a Browns exhibition game so they good "get the feel of the atmosphere."
There are many changes to come. Jimmy Haslam is a business man and marketing will be a big key for him and this team going foward -- that's why he said, "It's all about the Cleveland Browns and we need to be out front of this team."
Haslam also mentioned that somewhere down the road there would be naming rights for the stadium and maybe even a uniform change or modification.
Haslam is all in and maybe his biggest statement was when he asked the Browns staff in reference to the Browns facility. "Where do we stack up against the league and is there anything else we need to be successful," he said.
Haslam also said. "There is no reason why this shouldn't be a winning franchise, if we don't, I will take the blame."
