BOWLING GREEN, Ohio -- A group of diehard Cleveland Browns fans at Bowling Green State University are considering a boycott after the team traded Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts.
Craig Shaffer and the group of a half dozen 21 and 22-year-olds who live with him at their house in Bowling Green are from Avon and Avon Lake. They've been Browns fans for as long as they can remember. But the team's trade of Trent Richardson hit a sour note with them.
"We are outraged," Shaffer told WCPO sister station WEWS. "We couldn't believe it."
Shaffer says he and his buddies splurged for a Browns ticket package for three games this season but are now considering not even showing up. He says he wants to show the Browns that they're not happy with the decision.
"We want others to join us, we're not sure what we're going to do," said Shaffer.
Shaffer said he and his buddies are seniors at BGSU this year and moving back to Cleveland to live and work was a real possibility for many of them.
"We love Cleveland sports so much, but now we're second guessing that," he said of moving back.
Shaffer said he just wants to see the Browns do well like they did in the '80's. He hears stories from his parents and relatives and he wants to be part of it himself.
