The 25 Worst Sports Teams In History

Some teams are really good at being good, while other teams are also really good…at being bad. But who wants to be just average anyway? At least if you’re really bad you get recognition for something. Besides, who’s ever ranked the top 25 most average sports teams in the world? That’s what we thought, which is why we’re here to bring you the 25 worst sports teams in history.


1939 St. Louis Browns


Even 70 years later this is still one of the worst MLB teams of all time. With a final record of 43-111, the team had an ERA of over 6.00.


1935 Boston Braves

You know a team is bad when they have one of the sport’s greatest players ever (Babe Ruth) and still finish 38-115. When Ruth left, however, it was reported that people just quit coming to games and against the Dodgers there were only 95 people in the stands.


1980 New Orleans Saints

Although in recent years the Saints have seen great success, in 1980 things were a little different. To give you a better idea of just how different, their leading rusher, Jimmy Rogers, racked up 366 yards…for the entire season.


1979-1982 Northwestern Wildcats

Between the years of 1979 and 1982 this was arguably the worst team in college football. They were so bad that after losing to Michigan State their fans actually rushed the field, tore down the goalposts, and marched through the town shouting, “We’re the worst”.


2007 Miami Dolphins


Nearly going winless for the season, the Dolphins left it to the notoriously bad 2008 Detroit Lions (#8) to be the first team in history to not win a single game.
