CLEVELAND -- Born and raised on the Browns, one trade doesn't make one difference to lifelong fans like Stefan Ksiazek, who cheers, "Go Browns! Please ... Go Browns!"
"Tickets are still moving. People still support the Browns," says Mark Klang, the owner of Amazing Tickets, an online store where you can buy seats for any Browns, Cavs or Indians game. And trading Trent Richardson is just a blip on his business radar.
Mark is also a season ticket holder who says losing Trent Richardson won't affect his bottom line.
"Unless it's a quarterback, I don't believe there's a player they could put on the field where people are paying money just to see them," he said.
In other words, lifelong fans aren't buying a seat just to watch one player they love. They're here to watch the team they love.
Says Klang, "We've been saying it for a long time but, when the Browns do turn it around, everybody who has season tickets will be thankful they suffered longer than anyone anticipated."
"This is our team. It's that simple. It's who we are. It's what we are," says Ksiazek.
