Cleveland Browns fans have suffered for years, sitting through a long and ongoing rebuilding process with numerous coaching and quarterback changes. After a 4-12 season and another coach getting axed, one reporter decided to ask the tough questions at a press conference.

Dan DeRoos of 19 Action News went to the Browns' press conference on Monday and let the fans be heard when it was his time to talk. DeRoos read what fans wrote on the 19 Action News Facebook page, including calling the front office "the Three Stooges":

While the reporter read the comments, Browns owner Jimmy Haslam just had to sit there and take it. Awkward.

DeRoos earned a lot of respect from Browns fans on Monday. It's a frustrated fanbase, and one man decided to put the owner on the spot.

Hat tip to Deadspin's Tom Ley for the find.
