    I read this article at Yahoo.com about the top 10 least popular teams in the world and I think they mean only 1st grade teams. This is mainly a picture article on the web only and not the usual news article so I'm not sure how to submit it as a news. Apprently included in that list are the Canberra Raiders and the Cronulla Sharks. Surprising an AFL team Adelaide Power is also on that list like they only have 0.7% of the support in AFL? Wow thats bad. And how if the Raiders have the entire ACT and surrounding area, I surprised support for them is quite low, like I see plenty of Raiders fans around sydney at a few at games regardless on whether Canberra are playing or not. As for the Sharks, yeah we all know why they're not so popular, they really ought to move to WA to save themselves and start fresh.

    p.s. sorry Dan, in this particular article I'm not sure how to submit it as news.

    I hate all basketball teams, in fact I just hate basketball. Worst mainstream sport by a country mile.

    I'm also not a fan of the Pommie Rugby side nor the Indian Cricket Team, love beating both of those.

    There isn't enough Internet to hold the list of teams I hate, but a shortlist would be;

    Melbourne Storm
    Parramatta Eels
    Brisbane Broncos
    Melbourne Victory
    Man Who
    Liverpool
    Newcastle U
    Rangers
    New York Giants
    Dallas Cowboys
    New England Patriots
    New York Yankees
    Chicago Blackhawks

    Let's just say that if any of those teams planes were to say...skid out on an icy runway & explode into flames, I wouldn't be unhappy about it.

    The list in the original post seemed a bit lazy though. As an example, sure Jacksonville aren't the most popular team by NFL standards, but in comparison to most sporting teams around the world they are pretty well supported. IIRC there are a few teams that have lower attendances than them (Oakland being one I believe).

    I am a huge fan of the much underrated Uzbekistani Football team.
