Guess who is number 1?

It's an old but good list.

It's got to be my Lions. But that is changing.

Other guesses.. Nationals or Clippers.. Browns should be in the top 10. I'll take a look at the link now~~~~~

AZ bucco fan do research before you make idiotic posts.
I stated that it was old and some teams who have recent succes could be replaced by teams. The funny thing is the worst team on the list has made no improvments the last 2 years so guess where they still are? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

So you can take 2-3 year old pieces and apply it to today? What is this Groundhog Day?

The fact is some of those franchises have earned their way off that list. 2 years later the worst team on the list. Has broken the record for most consecutive losing season! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

:lol: LETS GO BUCS :lol:

The real question is which is the worst run major sport? That's why our Buccos beat out the Lions on that list. The Detroit Lions easily have the worst owner in all of sports. Nobody else would keep an owner who finished 31-97 in eight years. And that wasn't the first time he kept a GM too long. Matt Millen was the most inept but Lions GM Russ Thomas won no (zero) playoff games in 23 years (1961-1989.)

I mean no owner would keep a GM with such a bad track record..

I just hope the Pirates turn things around soon.. it looks like they are going about things the right way now. I didn't plan on seeing a Pirates game this year but I'm excited to see # 22. About time I visit PNC Park for the first time, wouldn't you say?

Here is a quotes from a Penguins message board summing things up for the Pirates.


QUOTE (PensFan295871 @ Jun 9 2009, 11:50 PM)
The PNC Park Jumbotron would work well too (assuming the Pirates were out of town...)






[quote name='ferris274' date='Jun 9 2009, 11:52 PM' post='1767148']
****, show the game there even if the Pirates are in town. At least then people would have a reason to go to a Pirates game.

Good idea, AZ. I was just checking pittsburghreggae.net.. Stephen Marley was in the area last week.
June 26 Stone Love.. his sound system is legendary in Jamaica. Royals are in PNC the same night.

I might go see Gregory Isaacs here soon. Wonder if he will show up? Last time I was supposed to go, Mrs. AZBF and I were going with Jake Plummer and his then girlfriend and sure enough, Gregory cancelled.

Gregory cancelled here, too! He was scheduled for the 5th here (our wedding anniversary) and cancelled. What a guy! The club had a free show with a local band instead. What place would want to schedule him? He's super huge though, an instant sell out.

Yellowman will be here in July! And then the three day Midwest Reggaefest out at Nelson Ledges, a park with a big lake made from a sandstone quarry. That's next door to a national park of the same name with huge sandstone boulders.. really cool place! This year features Beres Hammond, Freddy Mc Gregor, Original Wailers, Wailing Souls, Roger Steffens..

Wow! Jake the Snake? He married a cheerleader no?

I don't know if i disagree with much on that list, except the Royals being #2. I think they did get old and didn't make moves, but they soon will be a force to be dealt with. The are building up one hell of a pitching staff.

I would love to see Beres Hammond. I worked with Jake's previous girlfriend.
