The Detoit Lions-Pro sports worst run organization?

Has there ever been a team that could care less about winning.In the last 45 yrs-one playoff win-in the last 2 yrs-one win against a team w/a winning record-in the last 2 yrs-0 wins on the road.Their stadium must be sold out for next yr-if it is-why try to win-the fans still come.If there is a worse organization in all of pro sports-I haven't seen it?

The Bengals have won more playoff games in one season (Super Bowl vs 49ers twice)than the Lions have in the past 45.

I know they're a new team, but the DRays would consider finishing 20 games below .500 to be a dream season. 69-92 has been their best season.

I would have to disagree. Say we are talking about the last 10 years. I would say the Kansas City Royals are the worst run organization in sports.

The Blackhaws are pretty bad here. Their owner "Dollar"Bill Wirtz is a billionaire, he owns part of the united center, and the company that supplies the concession standsi s also owned by him.

With all this revenue he refuses to retain talent, blacks out all home games, and after the Hawks went to the Stanley Cup finals in the early 90's the following year he put all playoff games on pay per view.

Death of Paul Brown passing "torch" to Mike Brown has made Bengals the singlemost embarassement of all time.

There may be some bad moments from other franchises, but the Bungles have ruined/blown so many top draft picks that it's not even funny anymore, it's sad. Based on rep, the top prospects this year are all afraid of a phone call from Cincy in the draft.

So many coaching changes, player changes, still same result. Mike Brown is an ******* and has ruined an organization that started to show promise mid-late 80's...

Firing Dick LeBeau (who will probably be a good head coach somewhere), does nothing. Who would want to coach Cincy?

I feel sorry for the #1 draft pick this year (I would refuse, sit out the year, and sign with another team next year).

It is that bad.

I think the Grizzles, but they are turning it around this year. W/ the addition of West.

[rant] The Cincinnati Bung-holes are certainly #1; with the Lions #2 with a bullet, as evidenced by them keeping Millen and Mornhinweg for a second disastrous season. Umm... yeah, guys. Charles Rogers is gonna turn this franchise into a winner.
