Default Worst Present Day Sports City?

Cleveland last titles

Browns - 1964
Indians - 1948
Cavs - never

whats worse than Cleveland right now...Im sick and tired of hearing about the cubs title drought...the bulls won 6 titles in the 90s! The Red Sox fans were complaining as well when New England was winning their 3 titles and the Celtics won titles in the 80s.

Chicago? Neither the Blackhawks or Cubs have won anything in the past 5 decades. The other teams are doing pretty good though. And the Bulls brought them up i guess.

Edit:I guess I misunderstood the question. How about Seattle? They won a NBA championship in 1979.

I can't remember the last time a San Diego team won anything.

Depends if youre defining worst by lack of titles, or by lack of support. Atlanta is because of lack of support in general for a lot of their teams. Braves winning a title in 95 doesn't change that. Support wise, New Orleans has been and will be brutal for basketball. Charlotte certainly isn't setting the world on fire supporting the cats, especially considering this is their second chance and they have a new arena.

Lack of success would definitely point to Chicago, who have had brutal teams, Bulls aside. Pittsburgh would be up there with the Pirates and (before winning a couple years ago) the Steelers, although theyve had and will have some hockey success in the future.

what the hell are u talking about. Im not talking about lack of support. Im talkin about winning titles and success period. How can you say Chicago when the bulls are arguably one of the best teams in nba history. They won 6 damn titles in the 90s. The white sox won a world series recently. And Pittsburgh?! Are u kidding me. Not only did the steelers win the title a couple yrs. ago but did bradshaw's steelers not win FOUR SUPERBOWLS.

If you are going by wins it's Philly. The Phillies, 'nuff said.

If you are going by titles its Cleveland.

If you are going by support I have to say LA. Seems when it comes to sports if it doesn't involve the "Purple and Gold" no one cares.

Im saying overall. Chicago has 5 pro teams. And did I not completely mention that I was talking about non Bulls teams (just so you know, MJ usually means Michael Jordan).

I dont kno how u can just undervalue mj and the bulls. Them winning six titles more than makes up for the other teams struggles.

you're so retarded. the dodgers and angles both have some of the highest attendance figures in MLB, and USC gets 90k a game.
