ESPN released their "Ultimate Standings, ranking the best sports teams based on 8 categories:

BNG (Bang for the Buck): Revenues directly from fans divided by wins in the past three years

FRL (Fan Relations): Ease of access to players, coaches and management

OWN (Ownership): Honesty; loyalty to players and city

AFF (Affordability): Price of tickets, parking and concessions

STD (Stadium Experience): Friendliness of environment; quality of game-day promotions

PLA (Players): Effort on the field; likability off it

CCH (Coach/Manager): Strong on-field leadership

CHA (Championships): Titles already won or expected -- soon

The Packers were first overall. The highest baseball team was Arizona at #2. The White Sox placed 85th overall, with the Cubs 82nd, the Bears 95th, the Bulls 104th (what if this was run back in the mid-90s, they'd be 1st) and the Blackhawks 108th.
In other words, as ESPN has said many times, Chicago sports teams suck right now compared to everyone else.

not great. however, it should be noted that the sox ranked 10th out of the 30 baseball teams when it came to bang for the buck indicating that they're spending more of their revenues than some posters would suggest or at a minimum varify that any figures made public when it comes to revenue are not accurate.

Once again there are two threads on something. Maybe I should read more the first 10 post before I put something up.
