CLEVELAND, Ohio (WTHR) - The Cleveland Browns lost all sixteen games they played this season.

And Saturday, fans of the NFL team gathered outside of the team's stadium to celebrate their perfect losing season with a parade.

Columbus resident and season ticket holder Chris McNeil coined the idea for the parade as a form of protest to let the team's management know that the fans are not happy.

The parade circled First Energy Stadium and featured fans dressed in paper bags and holding signs to express their disappointment.

An estimated three thousand fans came out to support the demonstration. Proceeds went to a local food bank.

The team released a statement regarding the event -- claiming that "they hear the fans and understand their frustration.”

They want the fans to know that they are committed to doing everything they can to improve and build a team that Cleveland deserves.

The Browns join the 2008 Detroit Lions to become the only two teams in NFL history to have a record of 0-16 for the season.
