Depressing List

leave a comment »

Yeah, because things like a region’s economic condition and infrastructure should have equal weight as the number of psychiatrists and how good the local football team performs.

After a more-than-disappointing year and the realization that Cincinnati has only had two winning seasons in the past two decades, Bengals fans feel pretty down in the dumps about the quality of the pro football in the Queen City.

Just how depressed is the city of Cincinnati compared to the rest of the cities in the U.S. with an NFL team? One website compiled a list of the most depressed pro football cities to find out.

Avvo.com compiled the list made up of the 14 NFL cities that have never won a Super Bowl, basing their rankings on factors including overall team performance, psychiatrists per capita, unemployment, heavy drinking, adults with hypertension, average yearly sunshine and average commute time to and from work.

Here is the complete list.

1. Philadelphia
2. Atlanta
3. Cincinnati
4. Houston
5. San Diego
6. Detroit
7. Jacksonville
8. Cleveland
9. Charlotte
10. Seattle
11. Phoenix
12. Buffalo
13. Nashville
14. Minneapolis

I can see Minneapolis being the least-depressed. Buffalo being ranked 12th surprises me. I’ve been there. They ought to be in the Top 5.

And the fact that Detroit is not ranked in the top spot immediately makes this list invalid.
