Sports are cyclical. Teams that are bad usually get good again, and vice versa. But a few teams seem to be good every year, while others seem destined to be bottom feeders forever. Here's the worst of the worst:
5. Detroit Lions: The Lions aren't higher on this list because they actually seem to be heading in the right direction with some young talent. Still, it was only last year they became the first 0-16 team in NFL history. Tough to escape this list with that on your resume.
4.Pittsburgh Pirates: Every day is a fire sale in Pittsburgh. The Pirates haven't made the playoffs since the Ice Age and their go-to move is trading players just as they're on the cusp of being solid major-leaguers.
3. Kansas City Royals: The Pirates haven't made the playoffs since the Ice Age, but dinosaurs roamed the earth the last time the Royals played in the postseason. It's not a good sign when people use you as the argument for a salary cap in baseball. Ex. "We need a cap. Kansas City Royals fans know at the beginning of the season their team has no chance."
2.Oakland Raiders: Well pretty much everything they do is wrong, so it's pretty easy to put them near the top of this list. The only reason they're not ranked a spot higher is...
1. Los Angeles Clippers - Not only has the team been totally inept for years, the owner recently agreed to settle a case where he was basically being sued for racism and discrimination. Al Davis, you're lucky Donald Sterling is around to make you look good. OK, maybe not good, but less bad.
Honorable mention: Cleveland Browns, NY Islanders.
