Los tres perdedores, or the three levels of losing in Edmonton

New, comments

There are losing franchises, there are losing organizations, and there are the properties of the Edmonton Oilers.  From 2007-2008 through today, Edmonton's three teams have combined for a winning percentage of .370 over nine seasons.  The worst team in baseball, the Pittsburgh Pirates, a team that last had a winning season seventeen years ago, have a .420 winning percentage over the last nine seasons.  The worst team in football, the Houston Texans, an expansion team, has gone 49-79 (.340) in their first eight seasons in the league, though they've been one game over .500 in the last three seasons.  The Edmonton Oilers are making a case as the worst franchise in sports right now.  Below the jump is the carnage.
