Worst Teams of All Time

Allan Trammell and the Detroit Tigers lost an American League record 118 games during the 2003 MLB season.

The 2003 version of the Detroit Tigers set an American League record by losing 118 games during the regular season. This dubious achievement gave the Tigers the distinction of being one of the worst teams of all time. Here's a look at some of the other most dismal, disturbing and downright disgusting teams in sports history.

1899 Cleveland Spiders

Fans of the Cleveland Spiders needed grief counselling after the 1899 season. The Spiders were pathetic with a capital P. The team had a horrific record of 20-134 and lost 40 of their last 41 games. The best pitcher on the team, Jim Hughey, had a record of four wins and 30 losses. The Spiders did have a good excuse for their poor performance. Before the season started, the team's owner bought another team, the St. Louis Browns. He traded all the good players from the Spiders to St. Louis and left the Spiders with all the chumps who were horrible hitters, poor pitchers and feeble fielders.

1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers

The 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers definitely could have used some of the hustle and crossover magic of Allen Iverson. The Sixers lost 73 times during 1972-73 and won only nine games. This was a team that was so bad they could have been beaten by a team of blind midgets. The '72-'73 Sixers were bad from start to finish. They began the season with 15 straight losses and ended the year by losing 13 in a row. In between, the 76ers also had a 20-game and a 14-game losing streak and ended their season 59 games behind the Boston Celtics.

1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers may have won the Super Bowl in 2003 with a team loaded with stars like Warren Sapp and Keyshawn Johnson, but things weren't always so bright for those football pirates from Florida. During the team's first season in the NFL in 1976, the Bucs didn't win a single game. They were an embarrassing 0-14 and were outscored 412-125. When the Buccaneers finally won a game the following season, more than 8,000 fans turned up at the airport to congratulate them when they returned home.

1992-93 Ottawa Senators

The Ottawa Senators of 1992-93 were one of the saddest group of players to call themselves a professional hockey team. They played like they were wearing cement skates and shooting with lead hockey sticks. The Senators had a truly sickening record of 10 wins, 70 losses and four ties and managed to win just one game on the road all season.

Does Winning or Losing Matter? Vote!

  • No - as long as you're having fun and play fair, it doesn't matter if you win or lose.
  • Of course it does. The whole point of playing sports is to win.

Cheer leading, I think, is not a sport. I mean the girls who are cheer leaders never go are the girls teams but never miss a team where there are boys. So if it was a sport then shouldn't they cheer for all the students who are play a certain game where cheer leading is needed/allowed? Maybe in some schools it is a sport but in most, it isn't. -_-'

I don't know what is wrong with these teams. Former Colt's Head Coach, Tony Dungy, said that he wouldn't wan Sam because of the attention he was bringing. I just don't get it. I heard that his stats were amazing. A player should not be cut because of their orientation but because of their attitude or extremely poor skill. Why can't they just let him do what he loves to do, play football on a team that wants him.
