According to an article in the Cleveland paper, "It's not a democracy, but the group of leaders act as a buffer and a sounding board for issues, big and small."
This season, among the things the group has discussed with Coach Brown is punishment for a player who missed the team bus, team travel arrangements, and practice times.
Says Coach Brown:
"I think the group covers the whole team, from the young guys to the older guys, from the guards to the big men. If I hear there is a concern or I have a concern, I call a Committee meeting."
