Cleveland Browns Are Getting Crushed For Their New Midfield Logo

The Cleveland Browns make their 2022 home debut this Sunday afternoon vs. the New York Jets. The team is debuting a vintage midfield logo, as well. 

Brownie the Elf will be the Browns' new midfield logo. No, that's not a joke. That's the old Browns mascot, and it's as strange as it sounds. 

"We're super excited about the new midfield logo," Browns executive vice president and partner JW Johnson said Tuesday. "We really wanted to engage our fans in the process, and they are — as I've said multiple times --- undefeated. They're the best in the league, best in the NFL and, candidly, some of the best in sports. We really wanted to get their involvement and hear what they have to say. We were able to pull off the new logo with the old school Brownie logo."

Here's another look:

NFL fanatics are not impressed with the Browns' new midfield logo.

"This is hideous," one fan wrote.

"2nd worst decision they've made this year," said Lindsay Rhodes.

"Given that this is the old logo, it’s cool. However, it’s weird to those who don’t know this team’s history and those same people will have jokes," a fan wrote.
