Cleveland Browns Brownie the Elf

The Cleveland Browns have been playing at FirstEnergy Stadium since the city of Cleveland got their team back in 1999, and the stadium has looked largely remained the same ever since.

That is until Tuesday when the Browns organization announced a huge change to their midfield logo in a video released on social media captioned “The people have spoken”.

The video revealed a significant change to FirstEnergy Stadium, showing a change from the Browns’ official helmet logo as their midfield logo to their old “Brownie the Elf” logo which the team used in their inaugural season in the NFL back in 1946.

For those that were curious why this change was made, there was a fan vote this offseason that the Browns did for what logo would be used as their midfield logo for the upcoming 2022-23 season, and Brownie the Elf presumably ended up winning the vote.

Many around the NFL world are excited the see the Browns organization get back to their roots with this awesome throwback logo being used as their midfield logo.

This is a very cool thing for the Browns fans that remember Brownie the Elf as their team mascot, honoring the history of the organization that was nearly dissolved by the NFL after their move to Baltimore.

Cleveland’s first game this season was against the Carolina Panthers and former quarterback Baker Mayfield on the road, so they weren’t able to show off their new changes to the field.

They will get the chance to do so in their Week 2 matchup against the New York Jets, with the potential to surprisingly get off to a 2-0 start despite the absence of controversial quarterback Deshaun Watson following his suspension.
