    I know this thread is for individual players that have not won a title, but which city is under the most pressure to win a title?

    I don't think you can count single team cities/states, Utah, Portland, etc. It has to be Buffalo, right? Or is it Minnesota who has four teams and hasn't won anything since the greatest World Series ever in 1991?

    Given DC's size, the multiple choke jobs by the Caps and Nats and the utter irrelevancy over the past 25 years for the Redskins and 40 years for the Bullets, an argument can be made that they were the most tortured fanbase. Their last prior to last night occurred 3-4 months after Minnesota's last world series.

    But, again, then you have Buffalo.
    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    I can certainly vouch for the tortured fanbase. The combo of the playoff flameouts over the year, and the terrible ownership of the Redskins - plus knowing how good they used to be, or at least consistent winning, has been pretty miserable.

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.
