Cleveland Fans Unfurl Giant Banner That Misspells Team’s Iconic Nickname

This may literally be a sign of the times

How bad are things for Cleveland Browns fans right now? The Cleveland Cavaliers are the reigning basketball champions, the Indians are on the verge of winning the World Series for the first time in more than 60 years. They even got to host this year’s Republican National Convention. Which, regardless of your political views, is, well, something.


Meanwhile, the city’s dismal football team remains without a win nearly halfway through the season, sitting at 0-7. But at least there’s the Dawg Pound, right?

Nope, they even messed that up.

In an attempt to rally the faithful, a section of fans unfurled a giant banner which was supposed to read, “This is the DAWG POUND.” Instead, the banner somehow got taken out of order along the way, spawning the ridiculous hashtag #GPODAWUND from Twitter user Mike Klauss.

Needless to say, the embarrassing moment for a team so mired in mediocrity brought out all the trolls on social media. Things got so bad, one disgruntled fan even reimagined the misspelled banner as a giant “crying Michael Jordan” GIF. Maybe that’s supposed to be Error Jordan?

Still, it’s hard to feel too bad for Browns fan when their city is the hottest place in sports right now. Maybe some of that magic dust LeBron used to toss into the air before big games can be passed down to their struggling brothers in arms?

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
