Great_Milenko: Gunny Highway: Mid_mo_mad_man: Gunny Highway: GoldSpider: falcon176: and all the sudden every Steelers fan you know is suddenly a Pirates fan

Yeah, and they were proud fans of their Buccos the whole time too!

People seem to confuse "bandwagon fans" with "people who arent willing to spend excessive amounts of time money on a shiatty product but still root for a team and when the team starts to get good they pay more attention."

Happens all the time.

Actually what you just described is a bandwagon fan. I wear a dog eared Royals cap just so I can say I've followed them for years. I really want a new cap but I don't want to look like a new fan. So I wear an old cap

Jesus.  Buy a new hat.  How does having a new hate make you less of a fan?  It is a farking hat.

Just be sure to peel the hologram sticker off so you don't look like a jackass and you'll be fine.


Yeah.  Maybe he should ask for one as a gift so we can play the sheepish "it was a gift" line.

Which team now holds the current streak for pro sports futility?

I think Royals


I don't know what the correct answer is, but it's probably not the Royals.  They had a winning season in 2003.

There has to be an NBA team that's worse than that.

I grew up watching the epic Reds/Pirates playoffs. Always liked the Bucs as long as they weren't playing the Reds. Glad to see them doing well now. Hurdle's the real deal as a manager.

1. It's both sad and pathetic that you care that much about what other people think of your hat status.
2. Casual fans (i.e. bandwagon fans) give the team more money, which should give the team a better chance at acquiring better talent and winning more games.
3. What's the end game for you?  So you can be sitting in a bar when the Royals win the WS, turn to the crowd of happy, cheering people and say "No, no, I was here first!  I was here first! Stop having fun!  That's my fun!"

If the Cubs ever win the WS in my life, I will make sure I'm in Wrigleyville when it happens.  I will immerse myself in the crowd, and when that moment comes, I don't care if the people around me just started rooting for them during the WS, I'm hugging every motherfarker there.

Maybe the hat comment wasn't the best way to explain my thoughts on bandwagon fans. I was thinking more of what Bosox fans call the pink hatters.

The Bills do have the longest current playoff drought in the NFL.  They haven't played in a playoff game since the 1999 season (you may recall it - it's commonly referred to around the country as the "Music City Miracle," and in Bills country as "the forward lateral game").

But if the discussion is longest stretch of losing seasons, I don't know.

Congrats, Pirates fans - you've had to wait too long.  And good luck in the postseason!
 
2013-09-04 11:23:53 AM
Okay, here are the streaks:
MLB: Royals, 2003
NFL:Raiders 2002 (but have had .500's since); Bills 2004 overall
NBA: T-Wolves 2005
NHL: Oilers 2008
MLS: Chivas & the Revs, 2009
CFL: Ti-Cats 2004 (2010 .500); Riders 2010 for each.  Unless the Redblacks are the same team as the old Renegades/Rough Riders, in which case there hasn't been a winning football season in Ottawa since 1978, and no .500s since 1992.

I'll do playoffs in a bit.

FriarReb98: NHL: Oilers 2008


NHL is skewed since the introduction of the loser point.  Very few teams have "losing seasons" anymore.  Even most of the teams that miss the playoffs are "above .500" as it is currently calculated.

NHL points system is such a clusterfark, you can't look at the records.  Playoff drought is a better measure of extended futility.

Edmonton hasn't win over 50% of their games since '87-'88.  Columbus has never won over 50%, with the franchise starting in '00-'01.

mactheknife: regindyn: I think I'm more proud of the fans that stuck around.  I don't know how you did it.

Generally by crying for the first few years, blackout drinking for about the next decade after that, then just laughing at the absurdity of the team's upper management.


That's pretty much how it's done in Milwaukee, with a little celebratory blackout drinking thrown in when the team's winning.

Then let's just say that I disagree with your thoughts on bandwagon fans.  Even the longest, diehard-ist, oldest, crankiest fan doesn't really amount to much compared to a casual fan who just started watching yesterday.  We're all just fans.  We didn't accomplish shiat.  The players on the field did.  We're just happy that they did it.

I've been a Cubs fan since 1987.  I have absolutely zero problem with people who don't know a thing about the team, but wear t shirts and buy tickets when the team is doing well.  Know why?  Because I was an Andre Dawson bandwagon jumper.  I just happened to stick with the team.  But that 26 years I've been a fan doesn't mean anything.  It's not anything I accomplished, so it's not anything for me to lord over others.

I hope every Cubs game sells out, I hope every t-shirt sells, I hope every facebook post and tweet has something to do with the Cubs.  Because that will mean my team is making a shiat ton of money, which will be reinvested in the ballpark, players, coaches, and management.

And looking at the numbers again, the longest streak of sub-.500 seasons is Edmonton, who last had a .500+ season in '07-'08, so only 5 years.

Oh, and fark Kevin McClatchy. I hope he knows how reviled he is by Pirates fans. He promised the world and delivered jack shiat. Nutting did everything McClatchy promised to do and didn't. Tonight we are finally free of his legacy of failure.

So I assume if somebody wants to be killed all they have to do is stand in between PNC Park and Heinz Field and say the names Kevin McClatchy and Neil O'Donnell.

Nobody ever hit the ball out of Three Rivers Stadium and very few ever reached the upper deck there. It happened 13 times, but one of those 13 was in a HR derby so it was really 12 times. Willie Stargell did it 4 times, Dave Parker never did.  http://home.mindspring.com/~gearhard/stadiums.html#upperdeck
 
2013-09-04 02:00:14 PM
A few more streaks:

The oldest teams to have never won a professional sports championship are the Rangers & Vikings, both founded in 1961.  (There are three teams from the old AFL - the Bills, Titans and Chargers - that won AFL titles, which is why they're not tops on this list.)

The oldest team to have never been to a professional sports championship is the Washington Nationals (1969). (Before you say it, the Nuggets went to the '76 ABA finals, so it counts.)

Everyone should know the longest streaks for championship droughts and finalist droughts both belong to the same team, but the second longest streak for a championship is the Arizona Cardinals (1947) and the second longest streak for a finals appearance is the Sacramento Kings, who last appeared in the finals as the Rochester Royals in 1951.

The longest playoff drought in the NHL is the Oilers (2006).   The longest playoff drought in the NBA is the Timberwolves (2004).  (Both of those are impressive when you realize that over half the teams in the league make it to the playoffs every year.)
The longest playoff drought in the NFL is the Bills (1999).
The longest playoff drought in the MLB is the Royals (1985).  Unless I'm mistaken, they still have fifteen years to go for the longest stretch between a championship and their next playoff season, which was the Chicago White Sox (1917-1959).  Though given the current setup of pro sports playoffs, that's one record that's nearly impossible to break.

I was at that HR derby, and while Frank Thomas had the longest clout (and it was massive, just amazing to see) he wasn't the only one to reach the upper deck during the competition. Hell, Griffey had five or six on his own, all into the same section of seats (he won that year).

Not that this is of any consequence, I'm just surprised that they'd include one lone upper deck shot from that HR derby on a list of in-game homers.

Nope. None of us were proud fans. We were ashamed of the product they put on the field. Nonetheless, we were fans. It's easy to be, say, a Yankees fan. It hasn't been easy to be a Pirates fan in 20 years, and even then, when they were good for a couple of seasons, they were only a few years removed from a 100-loss season. For most of my life they've been dogs. Yet we still held out hope.

Unless I'm mistaken, they still have fifteen years to go for the longest stretch between a championship and their next playoff season, which was the Chicago White Sox (1917-1959). Though given the current setup of pro sports playoffs, that's one record that's nearly impossible to break.

White Sox made the playoffs a couple of years after that championship...

Shiat.  Well, then it's 41 years, and the Indians tied it.  Either way it'll still take a lot of farking fail to match it.

Orgasmatron138: I've been a Cubs fan since 1987. I have absolutely zero problem with people who don't know a thing about the team, but wear t shirts and buy tickets when the team is doing well. Know why? Because I was an Andre Dawson bandwagon jumper. I just happened to stick with the team. But that 26 years I've been a fan doesn't mean anything. It's not anything I accomplished, so it's not anything for me to lord over others.

I hope every Cubs game sells out, I hope every t-shirt sells, I hope every facebook post and tweet has something to do with the Cubs. Because that will mean my team is making a shiat ton of money, which will be reinvested in the ballpark, players, coaches, and management.
