FILE - In this Nov. 13, 1995, file photo, Cleveland Browns fan Lisa Vann, left, cries as her friend Jeanne Jolluck yells as the Browns lose to the Pittsburgh Steelers, 20-3, in an NFL football game in Pittsburgh. Modell was among the most important figures in the NFL as owner of the Cleveland Browns, who became the Ravens after he took the team to Baltimore in 1996. Cleveland fans hope Modell, who died in 1012, is not voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday when a committee choses this year’s class from a list of 15 finalists that includes coach Bill Parcells, former 49ers owner Ed DeBartolo Jr., single-season sacks leader Michael Strahan and Ravens tackle Jonathan Ogden.(AP Photo/Gene Puskar, File)
