    I nominate the Detroit Lions. They have never been to a Super Bowl, one one playoff game in the last twenty years and or in the middle of a thirty year rebuilding plan. They are so bad I find myself apathetic and not caring about what use to be my favorite sport (pro football):(
     
  2. Probably the Lions. I don't even remember a year in my life when they were a good team. Even with Barry Sanders they still struggled to win.

    Nothing quite like four superbowls in a row and zero wins.

    Bostin Bruins- No cup win since '72.
    Toronto Maple Leafs- '67
    Chicago Blackhawks- '61
    Buffalo, Vancouver, St. Louis, LA. Never won the cup.
    Philly- '75.


    I'd say at least some of these should be on the list, especially Toronto, whos suckage knows no bounds.

    i wouldnt put the cubs or the cavs on there, because the show some promise in the relatively near future. they also make alot of money, despite not winning.

    For me, it was real close between the Cardinals and the Lions.

    I went with the Cards since they have had some good players and good teams, they just fall apart every season no matter what.

    Why are the Cubs on that list? If we are talking about actual sucess than I could understand, but the Cubs have an excellent fan base, a beautiful ball park, and they can still sell out every game even when the team is awful.

    When it comes to downright pathetic organizations, I would say the Lions, the Detroit Tigers (ignore last year), a bunch of Hockey Teams.
     
  9. Seeing I'm in Australia and we obviously don't have any pro sports represented in the list, I voted the carrot option :D

    Choose the Cardinals or Lions. Either is a safe choice, and correct. :D

    Because the Cub's have been involved in some of the most historical collapses in History. I would certainly beg to differ on the Tigers, 15 years of futility is frustrating but In my lifetime I've seen two world series wins and a few other good teams. The Cubs SHOULD have been in the series in 87, they were a far better team then Padres, but they collapsed. They also lost one of the biggest, if not the biggest september division leads in history (pre wild card). I agree they treat their fans good, but so have the Tigers. Still it's hard to argue with a team that hasn't seen the series since WAY before WW II.

    What about the browns and saints? :)

    Oakland is getting there too. I mean c`mon... team makes it to super bawl, few of your starting players get drunk in Mexico and never show up to the game and you loose... just screams "great franchise".

    At least they were good enough to make it to the dance.

    I didn't see the Hartford Whalers on the list.
     
  15. I would have done that but I don't even know what codes of sport those teams represent ... they could be Basketball Baseball, NFL or Ice Hockey teams for all I know hahaha...
     
  16. Lions. The Browns are getting up there too.
     
  17. I'd have asked that my beloved Saints be added to the list, but after the snot-knocking they gave the Cowboys tonight, i'm feeling a little forgiving...

    Gotta go with the Cards on tht list. This is truely a team that can turn gold into lead.

  18. Don't hide from the truth. The Saints first season was 1967. Their first winning record was posted in 1987. They've won ONE playoff game in their history. That was 2001. I've gotta question why they were left off the list.
