    Is this Major League III or IV? This is Cleveland people where good sport outcomes only occur at the theater.

      I'm just hoping this movie does for the Browns what “Major League” did for the Indians. They got good enough to make it to a couple of World Series, even though they didn't win them. If fact, Corbin Bernsen, “Roger Dorn” in the first two films, complained that the Indians becoming good at that time derailed any more sequels. That led to the abysmal “Major League lll: Back to the Minors”. The Tribe hadn't been to the W. S. since '54 until they made it in '95. The Browns have never been in the Super Bowl. That would be a nice start.
