Top 10 Most Cursed Sports TeamsThese teams have not had much success in the past, whether it might be countless playoff heartbreak, or just being plain bad.
The Top Ten
Until this team wins the championship, the Browns will forever be haunted by words that hurt a lot to the Brwons fans: The Retirement (Jim Brown), Red Right 88, The Drive, The Fumble, Bottlegate and worst of all The Move.
Used to be a model franchise in NFL's early days. But since then, they have gone through numerous draft busts and starting QBs.
They seemed cursed since they always seem to miss the playoffs ever since 2003
They’ve had a lot of bad luck over the years but something tells me Baker will be different. He may finally give that team something to celebrate besides just a win.
In the past last few years sure we made two playoff appearance only to lose go figure it's the Lions, anyways since then we have lost big major pieces of our team like Ndamukong Suh, Calvin Johnson, & Stephen Tulloch in a way. Now entering this new season I am approaching it with an open mind as if I know what will happen no need to overreact the result will be the same to me and hope for better of this team. If I'm correct in the future, If Stafford incredibly under performs to his expectations this year combined with terrible coaching then they should be considered top 5, If not top 3 I have suffered with this team for quite a long time of losing seasons and typical results over and over.
Yes, you guys will say they are "too low". But they have been a little bit better recently, that doesn't save them from being on this list, though. Twice superstars have retired in their primes and are one of four teams not to have appeared in the Super Bowl.
Like the Browns, was once a model franchise. But they haven't won the cup since 1967 and since then have been a doormat of the NHL.
Another reason why I hate voting just to express my opinion. Also, change the name of this list to 'Most cursed North American sports teams' it would suit this list a lot better.
Hey the curse is finally over, so therefore they should be lower.
They won the 2016 world series
No championships since 1908. enough said.
Yes they've been good and at times great BUT since 1973, never won the NBA Championship. Among the key curses we're signing Spencer Haywood, Bob McAdoo (even though he still had good seasons even in New York), Marvin Webster, The injury of Scoring sensation Bernard King in 1985, The Bulls of the late 1980s and into 1993, Larry Brown as head coach and even Lenny Wilkens as head coach, John Starks' awful 1994 nba finals Game 7 performance and finally Phil Jackson as General Manager.
Have they ever been good?
The perfect team to be cursed, here's a few reasons, the Broad Street Bullies beat the Sabres IN Buffalo in the 1975 Stanley Cup Finals, "No Goal" in the 1999 Stanley Cup Finals, the breakup of the French Connection, the tragic death of Tim Horton, the 1992-93 Canadiens in a 7-game heartbreak loss, the Non-Goal that counted in the Flyers ellimnating the Sabres in the 2000 playoffs, 6 head coaches since 2013, the firing of Ted Nolan despite being named the NHL Coach of the Year, and so on
A lot of you guys will be against me, but I decided the Rangers are haunted enough to deserve a spot on the list. Made it to two straight World Series, but lost them both, the latter in agonizing fashion.
I still can't believe they made it to the NFC Championship game four straight years in a row, yet made the SB only once, losing to New England. Their fans will tell you that as successful as they have been in the regular season, they are almost guaranteed to choke in the playoffs.
They finally won a super bowl
They won a super bowl!
Not a Vikings fan but the 2017 postseason was a perfect example. They had a Minneapolis miracle against New Orleans and then they followed that game with an absolute meltdown against Philadelphia who won the super bowl
Being a Vikings fan myself, it was very painful to put them on the list. They're probably the "best" team to be on the list, but they have been ripping fan's hearts out for years and years.
This one speaks for itself. Went to four straight SB's, lost them all. Only sports team that hasn't been to the playoffs in the century.
They have made the playoffs in the 21st century finally but going to 4 straight Super Bowls and not winning 1 is a sign you’re a cursed team
Recently became good, but that doesn't erase their early years of being a doormat. They are one of three teams that have yet to make it to the Conference Finals
Chris Paul went to the rockets.
I'll admit it, I had a tough time deciding who should have taken #10, but the Sharks are one of those teams that will do really well in the regular season, only to choke in the playoffs.
Washington Capitals--Sharks joined the NHL in 91, Caps have been breaking their fans hearts since 74
They finally won the cup!
They had a good season and still missed the playoffs again it sucked
Oilers some reason seemed cursed missed playoffs lots then had a good 2019-2020 season then the Coronavirus stopped the season
They blew the World Series to the Cubs a few years ago. And being in Cleveland doesn’t help.
They haven’t won any championships since 1947.
After witnessing them blow a 28-3 lead in the super bowl I'd say it must have been a curse.
What team is this?
