An obituary published in the Sandusky Register Thursday cites the Cleveland Browns' winless season as a contributing factor in the Ohio man's death Wednesday.

NBC News reports Paul Stark, 80, died in a hospice facility after a brief illness "exacerbated by the hopeless condition of the Cleveland Browns.

The obit also claimed the man died "just before the Browns were prepared to turn the corner."
