The View From Pluto

The Cleveland Browns open their season at home this weekend against the Pittsburgh Steelers. After failing to win a single game last season, the Browns are heading into this season hoping for a fresh start with two new quarterbacks. 

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto thinks the team can improve from their 0-16 season.

High school football kicked off this past week across Ohio with fewer kids on the field. A study from the National Federation of State High School Associations shows the number of kids playing football declined for the second year in a row – down by about 50,000 over two years. The study also says, however, that football remains the most popular boys' sport. 

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto said football can be beneficial for kids, if it’s approached the right away.

The Cleveland Indians are a two-owner franchise. Even casual fans know the majority owner is Paul Dolan, but what about the minority owner John Sherman? WKSU’s sports commentator Terry Pluto thinks it’s no coincidence that the Indians really started winning after Sherman bought a minority stake in the team in 2016.

The Cleveland Browns are off to a promising start to the season. The team that went 0-16 last year kicked off the preseason last week with a win over the New York Giants. They’re also in the national spotlight, featured on the HBO documentary series, Hard Knocks.

But WKSU commentator Terry Pluto cautioned fans not to get too excited about the preseason.

The Cavs in the post-LeBron James era are beginning to take shape.

The team has spent the summer developing its young prospects and is keeping a key piece of the 2016 championship team; Kevin Love is now under contract for the next five years.

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says Love has always been the talk of trade rumors, and now he’s the face of the Cavs.
