Two winning seasons in the past 17 years. Watching your team win five or fewer games in six of the last seven campaigns. Having to deal with the ongoing Johnny Manziel saga.
These are some of the things that might push you toward the edge as a Cleveland Browns fan.
But, if the below videos are to be believed, the straw that really breaks the camel's back is watching your team have a game-winning field goal blocked and returned for a touchdown on a freezing Monday evening.

With the Browns looking to be heading for a win against the Baltimore Ravens last night, the camera phones came out in force as Travis Coons prepared for the 51-yard kick attempt.
But, as the kick was blocked and returned for a crazy return TD by the Ravens' Will Hill, the footage instead turned into the perfect summary of what life is like to be a Browns fans.
From the sad selfie...
To the documental evidence of a man descending into madness...
The pièce de résistance, however, has to be the resurfacing of The Hulk as a Cleveland fan...
And, in the aftermath of the defeat - the Browns' ninth of the season - things have only gotten worse.
It turns out that one Ravens player actually sneaked offsides in the run-up to the field goal attempt - his head and right hand finding their way into the neutral zone - only for officials to miss the infraction.
Had a flag been thrown, there would have been no blocked field goal return. There also, though, wouldn't have been any of the incredible videos that followed. So, really, we should be thanking the refs on this occasion.
