CLEVELAND -- Cleveland closer Chris Perez has taken his frustration over Cleveland sports loyalties public, again.

After criticizing Indians fans earlier in the season for not coming out to the ballpark, Perez expanded on his bemusement in an interview with the New York Times.

The Indians have the lowest attendance in the American League despite being above .500.

In talking about the fans and what Perez perceives as a lack of support for the Indians, he commented on what he says is a double standard when it comes to the city's support of the Browns.

"That's what I don't understand," Perez said. "Their whole thing is, 'We want a winner.' Well, why do you support the Browns? They don't win. They've never won. They left. You guys blindly support them. I don't understand it. It's a double standard, and I don't know why."

To read more about Perez's comments and his take on how sports fans still react to LeBron and his continued frustration for the low attendance at Progressive Field, check out the full article on the NY Times.
