A man who attended Saturday's NFL playoff game at Cleveland Stadium was killed when he fell from the side of an escalator, police said. The Cuyahoga County coroner's office identified the man as Daniel Bulmahn, 52, of Tonawanda, N.Y., a Buffalo suburb. The incident occurred moments after the Cleveland Browns defeated the Buffalo Bills, 34-30. "There's absolutely no indication of any horseplay or fight," said police dispatcher Michael Goga. "It was purely an accident, according to his friends."

Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher on Monday blamed security workers at Cleveland Browns Stadium for a confrontation that led to the arrests of several of his relatives during his first NFL game in his hometown. A report from the Cleveland Police Department, however, blamed what it called a "riot" on the fans who were arrested, saying a security official was punched and knocked to the ground while trying to escort an unruly spectator from the stadium. Fletcher said four of his family members were arrested and still in custody as of Monday afternoon.

Neil O'Donnell took the game ball home with him, realizing that he may never get back to Cleveland Stadium again. "That's something that is going back to my family room, and I'm going to cherish it," the Pittsburgh quarterback said Sunday after he passed for 251 yards as the Steelers beat the Browns, 20-17.

Bottles sailed. Trash rained. Danger flew. Angered by an official who made a call against their team, fans littered the playing surface with debris, causing a delay of the game. Cleveland Stadium in December? No, Staples Center on Saturday afternoon. The unsophisticated, unruly fan behavior we find so reprehensible in distant towns occurred right down the street, when angry King fans cluttered the ice and caused a 10-minute delay in the final moments of a 4-2 loss to the Colorado Avalanche.

The Indians are battling for first place in the American League East as the All-Star break approaches, but fans at Cleveland Municipal Stadium will get something extra with Friday's game against the Seattle Mariners: a Hollywood film crew. The film folks will be on hand to get crowd and establishing shots for "Major League," a picture written by Cleveland native David S. Ward--who also wrote or co-wrote "The Sting" and "The Milagro Beanfield War"--and starring Charlie Sheen and Tom Berenger.

The city of Cleveland delivered to the Browns a proposal for a $175-million stadium renovation meant to keep the team from moving to Baltimore or to attract a new NFL club, but didn't get to see any team officials. Mayor Michael R. White said the sweetened package included enhanced team revenues in the form of excise and parking taxes, state support and a voter-approved alcohol and tobacco tax extension. All but the tax extension are new incentives.

Yankee outfielder Jesse Barfield became the latest player to throw a ball in anger, hitting the elevated subway tracks that stand behind the right-field fence at Yankee Stadium on Thursday. After fans in the right-field seats threw Wally Joyner's fifth-inning home run back onto the field, Barfield picked it up and threw it out of the stadium. "It was a culmination of me not doing my job offensively and them doing the job of kicking our butts," Barfield said after the Angels' 7-0 victory.

Jack Lindquist, former Disneyland president and Save the Rams co-chairman, visited Cleveland last week and heard the same rumors he had heard a year earlier in Anaheim. Another NFL franchise was leaving town. Those rumors moved closer to reality Monday, when Cleveland Browns owner Art Modell announced a deal with Maryland Stadium Authority officials to move his team to Baltimore next season. The deal will need the approval of 23 of 30 NFL owners before it becomes official.

The payoff for scratching, clawing and trying to hang onto an NFL team was set at about $58 million Thursday night. Los Angeles received only a wave goodbye from the Raiders and the Rams when they departed, but the NFL's finance and stadium committees unanimously endorsed a plan, which will be voted on by NFL owners today, that will guarantee Cleveland needed funds for a new stadium and a team by the start of the 1999 season.

Paul Tagliabue is on the spot. In the two weeks since the Cleveland Browns announced they would move to Baltimore, public opinion has been almost entirely against it. So are the NFL's guidelines for moving, which among other items require a team to prove it lacks fan support at home and has no prospects for improving outdated stadium facilities.

You can call the Cleveland Indians' new home "Jacobs Field," or "Gateway," or simply "Indians Park." Just don't call it a stadium. A stadium, you see, is what the Indians left behind: huge, musty old Cleveland Stadium, whose countless empty seats served to remind the players every night how bad they were. "A stadium is a multipurpose facility. This is a baseball park," said Bob DiBiasio, Indians vice president of public relations.

It was all a crock, as we suspected from the start, but Art Modell and the NFL finally came clean on the deal this week. It didn't matter if we attended Ram games or not, although John Shaw rationalized a once-proud professional football franchise from here to St. Louis on the flimsy charge of rampant community "apathy."
