Worst Professional Sports FranchisesThis list is for the worst of the worst franchises when it comes to sport. These teams never seems to win, consistently disappoint their fans, or simply go about things the wrong way.
The Top Ten
Possibly the only team ever to have two future HoF inductees retire rather than continuing to put on their uniform.
Had the greatest running back ever to play the game alongside one of the great receivers in the game in Barry Sanders and Herman Moore. Still, 1 playoff win since 1957. Only 11 playoff appearances since 1957. Only 0-16 team in the history of the league. Gimmie a break, this isn't even close.
One playoff win in 61 years. Went 34 years without a single playoff win (1957-1991) and are currently on a 27 year playoff winless streak. Haven't won a division title in 24 years. Have never won a Super Bowl; they've never even been to one. Went 44 years without a Pro Bowl QB (1971-2015). And, oh yeah, went 0-16 in 2008.
By far the lions are the worst sporst franchise ever. They never win anything whatsoever I think they only have 1 or so playoff wins in there entire history. Look at there draft busts like Joey Harrington, Charles Rogers, and Mike Williams. All those losing seasons and poor managment.
This list needs updating. The Lions are on a roll now, the Rangers have been to two straight world series and the rays made the playoffs for the past couple years.
No winning seasons since 1992 and no end in sight.
This team is hard to watch see lose now one of a team that I can't stand see losing
In two years they won exactly one more football game than the New York Mets
Depends which version of the Browns we're dealing with: If it's the original, then they turned out to be a solid team and brought home a super bowl in 2012/13. Unfortunately, that was when they were, and still are, the Baltimore Ravens. Meanwhile, the expansion Browns were terrible. If that's what we're referring to, then this is really the worst franchise.
0-16 in 2017 with just 1 win in 2 seasons! They are a factory of sadness for their fans and are easily the worst franchise ever! The Browns are on the threshold of hell and I am so glad I am not a Browns fan!
102 years is two generations. do you realize how many people where cubs who died never seeing a championship?
Yeah they have a terrible franchise just pathetic they have been Around since there were dinosaurs and they've never been any good
It is true that the Cubs are one of the worst sports teams but you gotta admit they have the most loyal fans ever! (Including me)
IDK how you could not win a championship in a 100 years, blame it on a barn animal and not be number 1 on this list
Look at the history. It speaks for itself
Ask anybody they will tell you the same
Maybe if Jordan wasn't a retarded and would rehire larry Brown bobcat might make the playoffs
Jordan a great player
Really bad owner
How can this team be on any list with the words "professional sports," in the title. They would suck at semi-pro.
NBA definition for futility.
Even their rare playoff seasons have been a blatant disaster.
They are a disgrace
Shouldn't have moved to Miami
Am a fan but still.
This team gave me lots of anxiety since 2017, my least favorite nhl team
They did make the playoffs in 1981. Best team in baseball in the 80's and quite possibly the greatest team ever in '94. Loudest fans on the planet even with 8000 in the stadium near the end. Money and greed killed the Expos. Much like most of the United States!
Never made the playoffs in 36 years. Clearly the worst
Should be in the top 10 easily!
Al Davis' death seems to have brought about his even worse of a son in Mark Davis and they are going to be moving soon to Las Vegas!
Have hit hard times because of inept owner.
Worst team ever named after bad guys
Won like 5 games out of 64 games
The Kansas City Royals have only 3 winning seasons since winning the World Series in 1985, and no playoff appearances. And, they have the worst owner in Major League Baseball. Need I say more?
They actually won the 2015 world series
One winning season since 1985. Was once a model franchise.
Franchise was floundering even before the move to AZ.
I think their even worse than the Raiders and the Jags! Only 9 playoff apperances and 1 Super Bowl apperance. The owner needs to sell them to Los Angeles
Oh my God! Their franchise is a complete joke. They keep trading good players and replace them with bad ones. They should definitely be first!
NO winning seasons EVER. Won 70 or more games ONCE. Never finished above 4th in division.
Do I have to explain
Poorly managed and going no where fast. Horrible GM. Feel bad for the city. Great hockey town.
This team is actually good.
What the hell is a blue jacket?
never been a good team ever
This team gave me lots of anxiety in the 2019 nhl playoffs! They became a team I hate
Went bankrupt, got bailed out by new ownership via the taxpayers, owners took the money and ran, sold team, they nearly went bankrupt again, got the league to move the cross state, extremely profitable Astros into their League and Division aand in the process shift revenue from Houston's lucrative T.V. deal to the foundering Rangers franchise. The Yankees aren't what's wrong with baseball, the Rangers are.
Are you kidding me who has been in the world series 2 times in a row Texas ding ding ding 2009-2010 2010-2011 rangers are going to win it all
The reason why I don't play baseball. (I'm from Texas)
Never won a playoff series.
Shut up the bengals are my favorite team and mike brown is not a dumbass
Mike Brown is a dumbass and needs to get a general manager or sell the team
all they ever do is play the trap. no wonder why their at the very bottom of the league!
Definitely not the worst sport franchise, but when it comes to Worst Team Owner, they would be in the top 5 easily!
Dallas is never winning another SB until the day Jerry Jones dies (NFL should have stripped him of his ownership after what he did in 2017! )
Overrated franchise! They live too much in the past.
Dallas cowboys fell to 6th in the standings
The Toronto Make-Believes: Avoiding postseason glory since 1967
