    Finally I get some vindication for verbally abusing the ownership of the Cincinnati Bungals for the last 20 years who took over after the 1990 season. In that time, they have not won a single playoff game and have only been to the playoffs twice. Also, there are only 4 NFL teams who have gone 0-6 in their existence. The Bengals are not only one of those 4 teams, they have done so for a total of 6 times and 5 of those 6 times were under the current ownership of one Mike Brown. And lastly, every other NFL team has won a playoff game since the Bungs won their last one before Mike Brown took over the team. Here is the article.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    "The Cincinnati Bengals were rated the worst franchise in ESPN. The Magazines annual rankings.

    In all, 122 professional teams were rated in numerous categories such as players, fans relations, and affordibility. The Bengals brought up the rear out of all the teams from the NFL, NBA, and NHL, and MLB.

    'The best teams in sports find ways to reward fans devotion,' ESPN The Magazine editor Peter Keating said in a statement. 'The teams at the top of our Ultimate Standings do so on the field and off the field, they are truly notable for returning fans' love.'

    For the past 20 years, there has been little reward for being a Bengals fan.

    Recently, we interviewed one Cincinnati fan who grew tired of losing and gave up his allegiance to join Steeler nation. Another more famous Bengal fan, Nick Lachey, also expressed his displeasure the organization to the AFC North blog.

    Cincinnati has not won a playoff game in two decades, does not put enough money into its product, and ownership continues to make head-scratching decisions. The Bengals' franchise player -- QB Carson Palmer -- recently quit on the team, which only adds to its awful reputation.

    I don't cover all four professional sports, so its hard for me to say if Cincinnati deserves to ranked dead last. But there is no debate the Bengals should to be near the bottom of this list based on their poor and lengthy track record.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Bengals fans have dealt with the death of their teams in various ways. Like the one interviewed, some just root for other teams now. As for myself, I just gave up the NFL entirely. This is truly the worst professional organization I have ever witnessed, and finally there is national agreement. At least Mike Brown won at something I suppose. May the organization rest in peace.

    Not to worry. My lowly Cincinnati Reds will come riding to my rescue. Sure, right now they play like a bunch of jilted depressed school girls, but soon will overwhelm MLB with their superior talent.
