As president of Ohio's largest Cleveland Browns Backers chapter, the Buckeye Browns Backers (with more than 950 members), I know that true football fans love their teams to a fault. Every Cleveland Browns' away game, our club is jam-packed with screaming, barking fans cheering our Browns on to victory. They may not always win, but the die-hard fans keep filling Cleveland Browns Stadium every week, just as they keep returning to the Browns Backers watch-parties every Sunday.
Regardless of whether you follow the Browns, the Bengals or the Buckeyes, football is a way of life in Ohio. Unfortunately, some of the best football programming cannot be seen by millions of Ohio football fans because of cable companies' refusal to carry NFL Network. DirecTV, Dish Network and now AT&T U-Verse all carry NFL Network at no additional charge to their customers; however, Ohio's largest cable provider, Time Warner Cable, continues to ignore football fans by not offering NFL Network or The Big Ten Network to its subscribers.
