    I’m sorry but Hillis should be ashamed of himself for missing this event.

  2. Adam says:

    Between the “strep throat”, the agent, the “hamstring injury” and this. i’m all for trading hillis for a 3rd round pick. if you can’t support cleveland CHILDREN go play somewhere else.

  3. JD says:

    Doesn’t shock me. Browns are notorious for stiffing children’s events.

  4. LM says:

    Oh brother…. who is doing PR for Hillis?

  5. Lynne says:

    I don’t buy this at all. LeCharles is a notorious complainer and whiner
