Lions, Cubs are up there.  Clippers maybe?  Hate to say it but Leafs are in the talk as well.  Here's my top 5

1. Cubs
2. Lions
3. Pirates
4. Clippers
5. Leafs

Honorable mentions go to the cleveland cavaliers and cleveland browns .. bobcats are a fairly new franchise so can't put them in the talks yet

The Browns are so bad.  The fans I know are all on the brink of turning it in.

with their insane popularity -- do the cubs and knicks belong on this list?  I would argue no...

Knicks maybe not even though the last 10/12 years or so have been a major disappointment for their fans ....you'd expect a lot better from such a big club.

Cubs most certainly belong on the list

Since you're asking for the worst franchises in sports history, I'm not sure how you can include the Toronto Maple Leafs with the 13 Stanley Cups they've won.

If you had asked for the worst franchises over the last 40 years, then you have a point by including the Leafs.

Don't watch hockey, but my list would be.

1. Browns

2. Cavs

3. Pirates

4. Lions

5. Clippers

The Lions and Clippers have a chance to get off this list in the next decade with the teams they have, but the Browns and Pirates don't seem like they will ever want to be off the list aslong as they make money they don't care if they win, and it's sad because the Browns have some of the most awesome fans there are.

4 MLB has to be the Cubs based on last time they one the big one

5 NFL this one is hard  But when you pull up all time they have the lowest winning % 389 so lets go with them

I'm a Cubs fan and unfortunately slikstiks99 speaks the truth. HOW the HELL a franchise that makes SO much money can't field a WINNING TEAM is BEYOND ME
