Whether you’re a card-carrying member of the Southern California Browns Backers or you’re just in town visiting sunny California (we don’t blame you), we know you can’t go without your Cleveland Browns on game-day. Be sure to check out the official Viewing Sites for the 2013-14 season as there are a few new location switches.
Cleveland Browns defensive lineman Phil Taylor has reached out to the Browns Backers community to help support the community in West Texas that was victimized by an explosion at a fertilizer plant which killed 15 people. Taylor is asking supporters to purchase a “We are West, Texas” – full proceeds will go to help those affected by tragedy.
T-shirts can be purchased on this website - and when they are delivered, Taylor said fans can send him their messages of support via his Twitter account, @PhilTaylor98. “When you get your shirt, just Tweet it to me so I can re-tweet it and put #WeAreWestTexas” Taylor said.
For every shirt purchased, a name will be placed into our drawing to win one of the following prizes:
- 2 Club seats to the Cleveland Browns vs. Bengals Game
- Autographed Authentic Browns Jersey
- Autographed Authentic Browns Helmet
- Some other possible prizes to be determined at the date of the raffle

The Travel Channel has partnered with NFL Films and the Cleveland Browns on a new series that pulls back the curtain on the current 2012 season in “NFL Road Tested: The Cleveland Browns,” premiering on Tuesday, December 4 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT
From the Travel Channel:
The NFL will provide unprecedented access to Travel Channel to unveil never-before-seen footage of what it takes to travel an entire professional football team from city to city, game to game, during the regular season. Every road trip requires a massive amount of coordination to haul the 150-person squad 20,000 miles a season. From feeding six-tons of men, to clothing and housing them, to how a stadium prepares and deals with more than 70,000 rabid fans, Travel Channel’s cameras are there to capture this massive undertaking.
In addition, viewers will see how the Cleveland Browns prepare each week through the eyes of the players and team management, including new owner Jimmy Haslam. They can expect to learn more about the history behind deeply-rooted team rivalries and other notable insights not typically covered in game-coverage news. Episodes will focus around the weeks leading up to games played against the New York Giants, Baltimore Ravens, Dallas Cowboys, Oakland Raiders, Denver Broncos and Pittsburgh Steelers.
Be sure to contact the coordinator at your local SCBBA viewing site to see if they’re showing Browns preseason games.
First up, Browns -vs- Lions, this Friday, August 10 at 4:30 pm PST. You can watch the game if you have NFL RedZone or online at NFL Preseason Live. You can also listen to the game via Sirius XM Radio: 128 or Online at NFL Audio Pass.
And now, this amazing video highlighting the ‘Great Lakes Classic’:
Thanks to Vince, the site coordinator for the Hollywood/West Hollywood location, for this gem of a video.
For those of you in the Northridge/Tarzana area, the Stovepiper Lounge will no longer be an official viewing site for the SCBBA this upcoming 2012/13 season.
The new viewing site (just a couple miles down the road) for the area is the Maui Sugar Mill Saloon.
Please reach out to Pam, the viewing site coordinator (via email) should you have any questions.
Bar owner Johnny 99, owner of our Los Angeles Backers’ viewing site, hosted an NFLPA kickoff party for the first round draft picks last night at Saint Felix, in Hollywood, CA. He was able to meet Trent Richardson, Brandon Wheeden and Eddie George. According to Johnny, “All Browns and Buckeyes got special treatment.”
