Every year ESPN The Magazine ranks the “Best Franchises In Sports” feature. After placing 90th out of 122 teams last year, the Bengals are last (122nd) of all the teams in professional sports.

Franchises are given an overall ranking according to how much they give back to fans for the time, money and emotion they invest in them.

The Bengals rank last in three categories — fan relations (openness and consideration of players, coaches and management toward fans), players (effort on the court/field/ice and likeability off of it) and title track (championships won, or expected to be won, during the lifetime of current fans).

The Packers were named the best franchise followed by followed by the NHL’s Tampa Bay Lightning, New Orleans Saints, MLB’s Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and the NBA’s San Antonio Spurs.


“The best teams in sports find ways to reward their fans’ devotion,” said ESPN The Magazine editor, Peter Keating. “The teams at the top of our Ultimate Standings are winners on the field, but, as we write in the magazine, they’re truly notable for returning fans’ love—keeping core players, discounting tickets, investing in their communities. Value, both economic and emotional, has always figured prominently in our rankings, but this year we heard louder than ever that a team’s commitment to its fans matters more than anything else, more than even new stadiums and championship rings.”

Here are the ESPN rankings. The Rangers are #12 and the Mavericks 29. The Pies are over rated at 102 ($25.00 for the cheapest parking)
