GQ Magazine lists their 20 Worst Sports Franchises of All Time – Did they miss Atlanta?

GQ has revealed its list of  “The 20 Worst Sports Franchises of All Time” in its October 2013 issue, on newsstands now. For the list, GQ considered any and all professional sports franchises—currently active or not—and identifies the top twenty most inventively awful, disappointing, frustrating, and mismanaged teams in sports history.

From the disgraceful Los Angeles Clippers (#4) to the self-destructive New York Jets (#6) to the historically helpless Philadelphia Phillies (#14), the teams on GQ’s list are ones that have caused or continue to cause their fans the most agony. 

Topping the list is every sports franchise based in Cleveland, a city which—between the Browns, the Indians, and the Cavaliers—“last celebrated a title four years before LeBron’s mother was born.”

It could have been worse news for Philadelphia, but I think the Phillies are kind of coming off of those ‘bad’ lists… let’s not forget that game in Atlanta that the fans totally disgraced themselves and their city following a single ‘bad call’. An infield fly was called in the first photo below in Atlanta and then the trash reigned down on the field in something that’s never even been done on a Phillies field that I can remember. Maybe the Braves franchise got a pass for this one.
