    One hundred and ninty five years

    Back by popular demand. As requested, here is the latest update. It's one of those good news, bad news deals.

    Good news is this is the last edition of NY's Hall of Shame until the end of the summer. Bad news is, it only took two days for another NY team to fail.

    NY's hopes were pinned on the Buffalo Sabres. They made a valiant stand. They stood strong and fought with all their hearts but in the end were doomed by the New York State of mind.

    Alas, it has now been ONE HUNDRED AND NINETY FIVE years since NY has won a “COLLECTIVE” championship.

    Who knows NY, maybe the Mets will be able to soften your downhill spiral this year.

    Here's the breakdown:

    New York yankees – 2009 (1 year)
    New York Mets – 1986 (24 years)
    New York Knicks – 1973 (38 years)
    New York Islanders - 1983 (28 years)
    New York Rangers – 1994 (17 years)
    Buffalo Bills – 1965 (46 years)*
    Buffalo Sabres – 1970 (41 years)*
    * Never won a championship

    No wonder New York's despair has them at their wits' end. What a sad STATE of affairs…

    Let's not forget to point out that you pretty much have to combine all boston franchises' championships just to have more than the Yankees alone.

    i think it's impressive how many professional teams the state of NY has.  it takes 7 teams to get to that number.  plus i would consider the Giants and Jets to be "NY" teams as well (even though they play in NJ).  by comparison MA only has 4 teams.  and 1 of those encompasses and entire region.
    just sayin'....

    I also removed the Giants, Jets,  Devils and the Nets since they also are not in the NYC area.

    The Bruins have 23 of their own.  So not quite correct.  The Celts have 17 and the Pats 3, the Sox 7 so the NE total is 50 titles.  If we took the 4 of the New York teams - Yanks, Bills, Knicks, Islanders - we get 27, 2, 2, 4 respectively for a total of 35 titles.  So Mass 50, NY 35.  If we add the Mets, Rangers, Giants, Jets and Sabres to the mix it is 50 to 49. So with twice as many teams NY still can't outdo Mass championships.

    It is more impressive to be successful as a state with LESS teams, not more.  

    And less money ....

    Looks like The Babe decided not to play that card anymore.

    And you forget that while the Giants and Jets played in NY the Jets won the Super Bowl and the Giants won 4 NFL Championships. Not to mention the Brooklyn Dodgers and the NY Giants baseball teams.

    Nice try though.

    so why did you include Buffalo, are they in the NYC area?  the Giants and Jets are much much closer to NYC than Buffalo is.  Again smiley, your post makes no sense.

    So the Bruins 23 Divisional Championships now all count as Stanley Cups?  Interesting Math.  As for the purposes of this forum the most important numbers are 27 to 7.

    Also, there were only 6 teams in the NHL until 1967. Meanwhile, Foxboro is 30+ miles from Boston, while the Meadowlands is closer to Midtown Manhattan than most of the NYC franchises. A looney thread.

    When I added the Giants and Jets numbers back in, it came out to 231 collective years. So I did you a favor by leaving them out.

    smiley, you are right, the new yorkers pay their players gobbs of money, they should have thier players sign contracts like Crawford, Gonzalez, Drew and Lackey.

    Is this another "smiley" thread in disguise?

    Sure sounds like one.

    The only thing missing is kimsaythis and chain-reaction telling the O.P. how smart he is for pointing out that New York teams sometimes have problems.

    I don't think so; this guy appears to be in a class by himself. I've seen him before, when he claimed that NY had a sports drought dating back to colonial times, if not earlier.

    It's true. When you add in  the Jets, Nets Giants, and Devils, it's 295 years.
