The NFL's supposed to be the league with the parity, right?
Count 'em up:
There are five ridiculously awful teams in the NFL - the Detroit Lions, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Cleveland Browns, the St. Louis Rams, and Oakland Raiders. There are four generally awful teams - the Washington Redskins, the Seattle Seahawks, the Buffalo Bills, and the Kansas City Chiefs.
Want to know how many are in the NHL? Two. The Carolina Hurricanes and the Toronto Maple Leafs. That's it.
By the way, have you checked out what's going on in the NBA? The New Jersey Nets are 0-16. The Minnesota Timberwolves are 1-15, thanks to a win against New Jersey. This could get entertaining down the road. (In case you were wondering, there is one more game between the two teams, on December 23 in scenic New Jersey.)
