Score Order[edit]

The score order should not be away-home, as that leads to very disorganized templates. It would be much more organized if either winner-loser (as is the common method of reporting American Football scores) or Browns-Opponent, as that would always put Cleveland's score first.

Given the fact you see scores reported away-home on sports shows should be enough to warrant the scores being reported away-home on the temple. Yes, you read them winner-loser, but that doesn't necessarily mean that's how it should be written. Wlmaltby3 (talk) 07:13, 9 September 2008 (UTC)
I would have to agree with Baseballfan that W-L score should be recorded rather than A-H score. Sure on sports tickers like ESPN's bottom line have the score A-H but that does not mean this template should. For example, if the Browns defeat the Vikings 24-17 at home the bottom line would read "Vikings 17 Browns 24 Final." It works there but not here. If A-H score is used here, this game would read "W 17-24," which just doesnt look right, and reads "The Browns won 17-24," which is almost never stated. The W-L score is almost universially used. Also, W-L scoring is used in most other NFL season templates NewYork483 (talk) 19:03, 10 September 2008 (UTC)
