    ESPN Mag: Jets worst franchise in NFL

    It isn't easy being green.

    In the latest issue of ESPN The Magazine -- the annual "Franchise" issue -- the Jets are rated as the worst franchise in the NFL and 121st out of 122 teams in the major sports. The ratings are based on several criteria -- fan relations, affordability, bang for the buck, stadium experience, players, ownership, title track and coaching. In case you're wondering, the Sacramento Kings finished 122nd.

    There seems to be an anti-New York bias, as the Giants (66), Rangers (76), Yankees (87) and Knicks (102) all rank in the bottom half of the standings. Presumably, the price of tickets in New York was a huge factor in the ratings. But to say the Jets are 121st out of 122 teams is absurd. They don't belong among the elite, but they also don't belong among the dregs.

    The NBA's Memphis Grizzlies finished No. 1.

    Predictable play for NY Fan Outrage is Predictable.

    You forgot about the Marlins/Astros and various other NBA/NHL/MLB franchises that haven't sniffed a Championship game for decades.

    considering they're using stadium, cost, and lack of titles as three criteria, it shouldn't come as a huge shock. Our average ticket price is at the top of the league, our stadium is a cold, grey building lacking character, and the last time the team won a title, The Beatles were still together.

    As bad as the Marlins are, they have 2 pretty recent world series titles.

    True.

    But maybe they should factor in the fans ability to pay the costs with going to a game.

    Memphis is #1? I'm surprised their fans can afford to attend games after all the dough they spend on one-bottle shake and bake meth.
