Two former Cleveland Browns are teammates in the Fan Controlled Football League
It’s 2021 and after the XFL season has already been announced, we have a new way to cover football. The Fan Controlled Football League or the FCFL is an innovative new league in which you, the fans, are in charge. An interesting idea that we realized. The league has grown in popularity on social media platforms such as Instagram and Twitter. Decisions are made by the fans who add a new interactive focus to the game.
The league consists of four teams, the Glacier Boyz, the Zappers, the Wild Aces and the Beasts. One of the teams, the Zappers, has several names that fans may be familiar with. The group of owners consists of New York Mets pitcher Trevor May, the Minnesota Vikings who are bringing back Dalvin Cook, social media sensation Bob Menery, and Ronnie Singh, also known as Ronnie2K, from the NBA2K video game franchise.
The Zappers are also used by former NFL talent, specifically the Cleveland Browns. Notable names include the recently signed former All-Pro, Pro Bowl, and Super Bowl Champion Wide Receiver. Josh Gordon.
Gordon played six and a half seasons for the Browns, with a two-year suspension during that period. One of, if not the most dominant, recipients the Browns franchise has ever reunited with its former quarterback, Johnny Manziel.
Manziel flopped in the NFL and appeared in only 14 games for the Browns, of which he started eight. Johnny Football then jumped on between the Canadian Football League and the Alliance of American Football, also known as the AAF in its very short existence. Joining these two former Cleveland Browns is training camp fan favorite Damon Sheehy-Guiseppi (no word on whether he lied to train in the FCFL). Sheehy-Guiseppi never found his stance in the NFL before moving to the XFL and then the Spring League.
The Fan Controlled Football League was founded on February 13, 2021. You can watch these former Browns players play for the Zappers on the FCF’s Twitch page Here.
The next time the zappers are in action, they will play in the playoffs with four teams. They will take on the beasts on March 6th at 6:30 p.m. PST. All games are streamed on Twitch.
