Jimmy Haslam releases statement after FBI raid

Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam released a statement Monday after the FBI and Internal Revenue Service locked down the headquarters of his company Pilot Flying J in West Knoxville, Tenn.

"The FBI secured our headquarters today and informed us they are investigating Pilot Flying J," Haslam said in an email statement to the Knoxville News Sentinel. "We will cooperate appropriately with any and all external investigations and conduct our own. I believe and trust there has been no wrongdoing. The integrity of our company always has been job No. 1."

Haslam returned to the helm as CEO of the Pilot Flying J company in February after briefly stepping down to become the majority owner of the Cleveland Browns last October. Dozens of federal agents reportedly raided the facility and instructed all employees to turn off their electronic equipment before nonessential employees were escorted off the premises.

No surprise considering he is one.

I never liked him and knew the second he become the owner that things were going downhill. He even renamed the darn stadium to "First Energy Stadium".

The fact that a Life Long Steelers fan bought the Browns sent a cold chill down my spine.

Can you imagine Al Davis buying the Broncos, it's just blasphemy!

I never seen a fanbase take beatings like Brown Fans do. Hope they string that fraud up by his toe-nails. :paper:
