From the Cleveland memory Project. LA Dons have stripes on helmets and a sleeve stripe.

LarryB,

The pic is from the 11/25/1948 game between the Dons and the Browns from the LA Coliseum, won by the Browns, 31-14. The Dons wore the "spider striped" helmet for 1948 only.

Love the pic!

I can just imagine Paul Brown's pep talk before the game...

"When you see something in ALL-WHITE today, I want you to HIT it!!!"
