The top 20 teams that no one cares about.
How about your picks ?
This could be interesting.
Some of the picks were obvious like the Clippers and the Marlins, but others were a bit unfair. For instance I've always understood Minnesota fans to be crazy about the Vikings. The attendance issues there are not so much due to fan apathy, but rather the fact that the Metrodome is small by NFL standards. And if 29,000 people show up for Washington Nationals games, as bad as they are, the team should be thrilled. And why did they bother putting a soccer team on the list? Even the worst teams in the other leagues get more support than a soccer team.
Surprised that the Kansas City Royals or Pittsburgh Pirates were not on the list.
KC last won the Series in '85, never made the playoffs or gained much recognition since. Remember when they were contenders back in'03 and a critical division matchup between them and the White Sox didn't get very good ratings on ESPN.
The Buccos haven't gotten much recognition well, since Mr. Bonds left. In reference to another thread about cities' preferences of teams, Pittsburgh is far and away Steelers territory.
Dolphins? They suck but Bill Parcells is one of the reasons why people DO care about them. What about the Houston Texans?
I'm personally a Bengals fan and the last game I went to (drove 400 miles north to get there) was during the year that they made it to the playoffs and Carson Palmer was injured -- seemed like plenty of people cared for them back then.
