Only at a Cleveland Browns news conference would there be a question referencing the Three Stooges. In getting grilled about Rob Chudzinski’s firing, owner Jimmy Haslam was asked by a reporter purporting to represent the fans if he could give assurance that Larry, Curly and Moe weren’t running the franchise.

“Yeah, listen, I feel really confident we have the right people to take this organization where we need to, OK?” Haslam said. “We take this extremely seriously … It’s our single mission to change that (mentality).”

He then did not snap the fingers of both hands three times, pop one hand on the other fist and flick the fingers of one hand under his chin and go, “Nyuk-nyuk-nyuk.”

REFS GET IT WRONG

After a season of terrible gaffes by game officials, the NFL had to admit one of the worst might have kicked the Pittsburgh Steelers out of the playoffs.

With eight seconds left in regulation in San Diego’s home game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, and the score tied 24-24, Ryan Succop missed a 41-yard field goal that would have booted the Chargers out of the last AFC wildcard berth, and given it to the Steelers.

The Chargers wound up winning the game, and playoff berth, in overtime with a field goal.
