Browns’ GM Phil Savage says “F-You” to Bills fan in e-mail

Cleveland general manager Phil Savage apparently used profanity in an e-mail responding to a badgering Bills fan following the Browns’ 29-27 win in Buffalo on Monday night.

The exchange was first reported on the Website

“I heard something about it this morning,” said coach Romeo Crennel. “We all get frustrated at times. Phil, generally, like the rest of us tries to be professional and hold it in, but sometimes some things slip out. It’s unfortunate that it slipped out.

“But (during) tough times, tough things happen. I’m sure if we had to do it over again, we’d do it a little bit differently. I talked to him this morning and said we just have to hang in there, keep fighting and try to get this thing turned.”

The email exchange occurred during the Browns’ 29-27 win in Orchard Park, N.Y., on Monday night.
The fan, who appeared on WKNR radio on the Tony Rizzo Show without identifying his real name, said he had been badgering Savage during the course of the evening.

Savage’s last response was: “Go root for Buffalo. F*&# you.”

I’m all for being professional, but I don’t have a problem with what Savage wrote. If the Bills fan wants to be an a-hole, than Savage has every right to drop an F-bomb in his lap. That said, he still shouldn’t have written it and I’m sure after he hit the send button he thought to himself, “Ah, sh*t – I shouldn’t have f’n said that.”

Considering Roger Goodell suspended Dallas QB coach Wade Wilson for five games and fined him $100,000 for purchasing an using performance-enhancing drugs last year, Savage can probably expect a call from the league office soon.
