What do you think is the worst franchise in Professional American Sports?

Hello Guys,

You can chose from either the NBA, the NFL, or the MLB. I live in Chicago, and I would say the absolute worst franchise ever is the Blackhawks. Nobody goes to see them, nobody talks about them, and nobody cares about them. The owner actually jacked up ticket prices to over $50 when nobody even went. They are outdrawn every single night by a landslide by an AHL team, the Wolves. They don't even want to get better either. Just saying the name "Blackhawks" makes people laugh. They are the worst sports franchise. Another possible say would be the Detriot Lions, and possibly the Baltimore Orioles, but lets see what you come up with.

Thanks and Regards
Alexis Allen

@Alexis Allen,
Um--I'd have to say the Saint Louis Browns (1902-1953).

@Alexis Allen,
So, I can choose from basketball, football or baseball, but the example you give is from hockey?

Awesome market research there.

@Setanta,
This same "message" has been posted to twenty or thirty other sites.

I searched on "Just saying the name 'Blackhawks' makes people laugh."

For what it's worth, I think the Hawks are a good club. However, just
saying "NHL" makes me laugh.

@George,
In Canadia, they're not laughing, they're weeping.

I'll see their weeping and raise them a gnashing of teeth.

Well, considering that the Blackhawks aren't playing due to the lockout, that's not much of an achievement. Women's roller derby is outdrawing the Hawks right now.

@joefromchicago,

the blackhawks won the cup two years ago, so -- if asked -- i'd feel compelled to say they were a pretty gosh darn good team...
