PHOTOS: The glory days of the Cleveland Browns
They win some, they lose some but, more recently, well at least the entire 2017 season, the Browns continue to lose. After the team's founding in 1944, the Browns dominated the league early on with four NFL championships between 1950 and 1964. They were the team to be and the fans to have. The latter is still true. A bump in the team's history came when owner Roger Modell announced he would transfer the franchise to Baltimore. Fans and city responded to bring back football to Cleveland.
