Every sports fanatic loves their favorite teams, but sometimes our franchises are an outright embarrassment to their sports. It can be tough to be a fan when their team never wins anything special. Meanwhile, there are moments when franchises make decisions that even make it very difficult to support them.
So today we’ll look at some of the reasons why the following franchises are an embarrassment. We feel awful for the people who adore them because they’re living in a kind of sports limbo. Sometimes it feels like nothing will ever change and that they’ll be garbage forever. But it simply can’t be denied that these franchises are an embarrassment, so check them out right here.
Let’s kick this off with one of the worst NFL teams of the past 50 years. Detroit has never played in a Super Bowl, never mind won one. They have an appalling record over the years and fire coaches at the same rate as a surgeon changes masks. Motor City deserves better than this embarrassment of a team (via The Athletic).
The only solace is that they showed strong signs of improvement under Dan Campbell in 2022. But history isn’t kind to them and they’ve wasted some elite players over the years. The likes of Barry Sanders, Calvin Johnson, and Matt Stafford couldn’t bring anything close to glory to Detroit and that’s a shame.
