Top Ten Saddest Sports Cities

The Top Ten

1 Cleveland, Ohio

The Browns don't know what it's like to be in a superbowl and the Cavaliers have never gotten to be in an NBA finals even though everyone keeps saying that they will. The only championships Cleveland citezins got to experience was the Indians winning the world series in 1920 and 1948.

You obviously don't know much. Did you know that before the Super bowl era, the Browns DOMINATED the league. I'm not even a Cleveland Sports fan and I know this! That's what's sad. - MusicalPony

The Browns are so horrible at football that they're only liked by little kids who like their logo and/or the color brown. I predicted that the next superbowl is Browns VS Lions and my dad said that if I'm right that he'll pay me $1000!

Even with the Cavs winning an NBA title in June 2016 and the Indians losing to the Cubs in baseball's 121st World Series (also in 2016), the Cleveland Browns wouldn't know a Super Bowl if it ate them in one bite.

They got swept by the Warriors in 2018 nba finals.

2 Atlanta, Georgia

The Braves have been in the NLCS 11 times and in the world series once. The Atlanta Hawks have been in the playoffs 25 times and never to the finals.

Blowing a 25 point lead in the super bowl. Congratulations!

3 Buffalo, New York Buffalo, New York

In the 70s the Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Braves were really good teams, but the Bills were in 4 superbowls in a row and lost every single one. The Buffalo Braves are now more than 2000 miles away as the Los Angeles Clippers. Buffalo's hockey team, the Sabres have yet to win a Stanley Cup even with the 27 playoff apperances they have had since their first season in 1970.

It's a pity the Buffalo Bills played in four straight Super Bowls without winning even ONE title let alone four. Can anybody say fail horn!

4 Minneapolis, Minnesota

The Vikings are 0-4 in superbowls and the Twins have won 3 world series and one of them is from when they were still the Washington Senators. But one very disappointing fact for Minneapolis is that their former basketball team is now one of the best in the NBA.

The Vikings have got to be the most heartbroken NFL team ever. Every year they think they are going somewhere, it ends abruptly. Think about all the times they were so close. As a Vikings fan, the 2010 NFC game is my most depressing sport-related memory.

The Vikings play indoors. Their fans are SOFT!

5 Phoenix, Arizona

The Suns have been in the NBA finals twice and they lost both of times. The Cardinals made it to the superbowl for the first time ever and lost in the last minute.

6 Kansas City, Missouri

The Cheifs still have no superbowl apperance and the Royals have won one world series. The city's former teams the Athletics, the Kings, and the Scouts now play in California and New Jersey.

The other commenter is obviously not from KC. The Chiefs went to the first and fourth Super Bowls, winning the fourth, which is more than half the league can claim, and have been on a huge rise the last few years; Sporting KC is one of the best teams in the MLS every year; and the Royals just went to back-to-back World Series, so whether you think that's a fluke or not, no one misses the scrubby Athletics, trust me. And seriously, the Scouts? Sure, we all miss the Kings but no one gives a crap about hockey around here. KC fans are as diehard as they come, and sometimes it can be tough, but we love our teams and wouldn't trade them for anything.

7 Seattle, Washington Seattle, Washington Seattle is a seaport city on the west coast of the United States. It is the seat of King County, Washington.

The Seahawks have been in 1 superbowl and they lost it. The Mariners don't even know what it's like to be in a world series. The Sonics no longer exsist in the entire state. Now that the Sonics are in Oklahoma City, Kevin Durant is doing great. Seattle goes higher than any other city in the whole wide world!

This entry is in light of the disappearance of the Sonics basketball team that won an NBA title in 1979.

Jeez, in Boston (well... cent. Mass. ) we at least have won something. I would HATE to be a fan of these guys.
p. s. keep tryin - fireinside96

They have made it to the Super Bowl 5 times! Get your facts right!

8 San Diego, California

San Diego's two former basketball teams both moved to new cities. The Chargers lost their first superbowl in 1995 and haven't been in one since. The Padres have never won a world series before.

With the Chargers relocating to LA, San Diego should be #1.

At least the San Diego Sockers won 10 championships

9 Sacramento, California

When the NBA's Kings left Kansas City, they should have turned themselves into the Oklahoma City Thunder (leaving Seattle's Sonics team alone), in which case there would be no SUCKramento Queens.

10 Washington, D.C.

The Washington Senators (old baseball team) won a World Series in 1924 only to spend 47 years avoiding baseball's biggest prize.

The Redskins, Capitals, Wizards, and Nationals have only won 5 championships altogether, 3 of which were by the Redskins.

In a DC fan and we suck

The Contenders

11 Houston, Texas

The Astros still await their first title through 48 seasons and nine playoff appearances. The Rockets' two titles are all the city has since the Oilers took two early AFL championships during the pre-Super Bowl era. You may not believe this but the Oilers were so bad, that the residents told the owners to move the team out of the state.

All houston has for themselves are the 2 rings they have. And those two rings came when Michael Jordan was out of the league for a year and a half.

12 Charlotte, North Carolina

The LOL-cats went 7-59 in a short season and the Panthers lost Super Bowl L to the Broncos.

Only 1 NBA Finals or Super Bowl appearance (not win) in the last 20 years of NFL and 35-or so years of NBA

13 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Philadelphia is the largest city in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the sixth-most populous city in the United States, with an estimated population of 1,567,872 and more than 6 million in the seventh-largest metropolitan statistical area, as of 2016. Philadelphia is the economic and cultural anchor more.

Teams from this city have won only one major sports title since 1983: a World Series title by baseball's Phillies in 2008

Philly sucks their going nowhere

14 Montreal, Canada Montreal, Canada

This entry is in light of the disappearance of the Expos baseball team that won the NL East in 1981 and 1994.

15 Toronto, Canada Toronto, Canada Toronto is the most populous city in Canada, the provincial capital of Ontario, and the centre of the Greater Toronto Area, the most populous metropolitan area in Canada.

16 Chicago, Illinois
17 Salt Lake City, Utah Salt Lake City, Utah

The Utah Jazz (worst oxymoron in team sports) have never won a single NBA title.

18 Hartford, Connecticut

This entry is in light of the disappearance of the Hartford Whalers (old NHL team)

19 Orlando, Florida

At least the Miami Heat have won NBA titles, unlike the Orlando Magic.

20 Nashville, Tennessee

They have a terrible team
