Browns fans are ready!!!

Recommended Posts

Nobody will know what the Browns are as a team until about week 8, not even the Browns.

Collecting a bunch of talent is a good start, but it only matters if it turns into a team.

We'll see.

Gofundme - My name is Ashton Shepherd I’m 17 years old and yesterday while I was getting ready to watch the game my mom got a call about my dad and while he was in the muni lot, he had just gotten set up with his friends and he’s been a diehard fan ever since he was born and has had season tickets since 2013 and he was very excited and got on top of their van to take pictures.. as he was taking pictures he had a seizure, he’s been epileptic since he was around 18, but at this point he had been seizure free for 10 months and on medication and he fell off and it caused a break in his shoulder, 6 ribs are broken and a fractured skull with a blood clot formed.. unfortunately it was caught on live TV and the jokes and assumptions have made almost everything worse.. my dad is Andy Shepherd he is 40 years old and has been my best friend since I was born he’s always been there for me so I wanna be there for him and raise money for his surgeries he has to have.. thank you so much to anyone who donates him, his 3 kids and his whole family appreciate you!!!

Ok so I saw this on the Barstool social media on Sunday and I’ll admit I laughed. I rewtweeted it and made a joke. I mean without knowing the circumstances I thought it was just Browns fans being Browns fans. It turns out it wasn’t. The guy had a seizure and was severely injured.  Well the internet giveth and the internet taketh away. The least I can do is blog the story and get some exposure for him.  Hopefully Stoolies can once again show that we ain’t that bad.   He’s at 17K raised now.  Let’s get enough so that if the Browns ever make it to the playoffs or Superbowl he can go.   And since that probably won’t happen maybe he can just take a nice vacation when he gets healthy.

Why does he need a go fund me page?? Seems like everyone does this anymore. He could afford to go to a NFL game so I'm sure he has medical insurance.

1.  We don't know if he had medical insurance just because he was tailgating before a game.

2.  Even if he had medical insurance, most insurance is crap and hardly covers anything.

3.  Even if he's covered, with his injuries, he ain't working for a while, and unless he had disability insurance, his bills won't be covered.

4.  We can't assume he had disability insurance because he was tailgating at a game.

So there you have it - good reasons to give gofundme a shot.  Why not?

Not to make light of the injury... It was a brutal incident, he fell flat to the ground on live TV for everyone to see. I hope he recovers fully. But it does sound like the Browns game on Sunday too.

I want a new super-duper zero turn radius lawn tractor... I should start one to raise the cost, plus the money for a lifetime supply of gas and oil.

I understand that and I wasn't just pointing at this guy. It just seems like everyone does it even for nonsense. So it becomes hard to tell who actually even needs it anymore.

Yeah, but I have the 'I'm a disabled vet and can't use a push mower' angle... who knows, maybe I can get the mower and a new car... after all, I can't walk 7 miles to the store, either.

Maybe you can get one set up so you can get free Sunday ticket so you don't have to jump through hoops like you do lol

I wish i were too, the go fund me account was accompanied by a video my sister attached which consisted her whining for about 10 minutes of the injustices of life. She even started crying.

The video went viral, well viral among my family and friends.😉

And like i said all she ever got was 1 donation of 20 dollars and im pretty sure it was from my mom.

Nah, I haven't had Sunday Ticket for a couple of years now. Getting Philly locals with PS Vue is all I need/want.

Actually, a go fund me page to pay for my Philly Locals wouldn't be a bad idea... after all, if I can't walk 7 miles to the store, I damn sure can't walk 400 miles to Philadelphia!

So the guy who has epilepsy is standing on top of a van (I don’t have epilepsy and would never do that) while paying attention to something else.... and his 8ish year old son is on Twitter? Are these the activities we’ll be funding?
