Worst Professional Sports FranchisesThis list is for the worst of the worst when it comes to the big 4 sports.
The Top Ten
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.
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. - Chris-1
Almost officially 50 years and still no super bowl ring - htoutlaws2012
At least they're starting to get better with Matt Stafford as quarterback.V 10 Comments
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.
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.
Never made the Super Bowl in 45 seasons to date. At least the Pirates have won a World Series...
One playoff game ( a loss) in over 20 years? Should be top 5 for the worst! The only time they contended for an AFC title was in the eighties.
They consistently lose 10 or more games. They change QB's and coaches regularly. A total mess.
Original browns moved to Baltimore and are the Baltimore Ravens.
RIP Browns 1946 to 1995.
The current browns 1999 to present are the indisputable worst franchise in the history of the US, World, and Universe. They should be moved to Mexico, period.
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) - Ajkloth
Umm. What about Ben Zobrist,Aroldis Chapman,Anthony Rizzo, Addison Russell, Kyle Hendricks,Jake Arrietta, and so on. The Cubs WON the 2016 WORLD SERIES! THIS LIST NEEDS UPDATING.V 8 Comments
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.
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 playoffsV 1 Comment
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.
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!V 2 Comments
Poorly managed and going no where fast. Horrible GM. Feel bad for the city. Great hockey town.
This team is actually good. - OhioStateBuckeyes
What the hell is a blue jacket?
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 - CS2004
NO winning seasons EVER. Won 70 or more games ONCE. Never finished above 4th in division.V 1 Comment
Have hit hard times because of inept owner.
Worst team ever named after bad guysV 2 Comments
