    June 23, 1925 – September 6, 2012

    If you are a fan of the Baltimore Ravens, Art Modell is a great man.

    In 1984, under the cover of darkness, Baltimore's beloved Colts were packed in trucks and moved to Indianapolis. Owner Robert Irsay became Baltimore's number one villain, a title he will never relinquish. The whole city wept.

    In 1996, Art Modell brought NFL football back. He took his Cleveland Browns and made them into the Baltimore Ravens. There were no stealth maneuvering this time. It was a fair deal in accordance with the league, and was contingent on the Browns being resurrected — history intact — three years later.

    So sure, the citizens of Baltimore would have preferred an expansion team to the relocated one. But when NFL passed them up time and time again (seriously... Jacksonville?), what were they to do? How could they not embrace Modell and the Ravens?

    Besides, that Super Bowl title in 2000 was not too shabby.

    Unless you are a fan of the Cleveland Browns...

    Verdict: Jew.
