When one of my editors came to me and asked me to do a piece on the five worst franchises in professional sports, my first reaction was, "Easy!! Love to spread the haterade!" Then when I started to sit down and think about it, I realized how difficult it was going to be to remain somewhat objective on this. Yes, a certain amount of opinion, both mine and the public at large, will enter into the equation, but so many other factors have to be taken into consideration.
|Many teams see a lot of this during a season|
First of all, I had to decide whether we were going with a franchise through it's entire existence, or through the time they have been in their current city. Since there is no constant as to whether a teams records travel with them to a city or not, it can complicate matters. But I think looking at a franchise in whole is where we want to go with this.
