Default Steelers 7th, Penguins 10th in rating of best pro sports franchises

The Steelers and Penguins were in the top 10 among the best franchises in pro sports, as ranked by ESPN The Magazine.

The Steelers were seventh and the Penguins 10th.

The Green Bay Packers were ranked first. The rest of the top ten: 2. Tampa Bay Lightning; 3. New Orleans Saints; 4. Los Angeles Angels; 5. San Antonio Spurs; 6. Oklahoma City Thunder; 8. Colorado Rockies; 9. Memphis Grizzlies.

The magazine’s rankings are based on “how much they give back to fans for the time, money and emotion they invest in them.”

I personally think the Steelers should be ranked higher

Good point.

And the Grizzlies, Thunder and Spurs are in the top 10, but not the Lakers and Celtics? Pffffft.

Everyone knows where the Steelers as a franchise stands in the world of sports. A no-brainer. The Rooney family is possibly the most caring, well-rounded, & crafted ownership in all of sports, let alone intelligent of going about their business. I mean, 3 coaches since 1969? Incredible.

As far as Tampa. What a complete mockery. All of Sports-Nation should wipe their ass with that selection. Terrible display of picking them number two when they should barely rank in the top 100 in theory.

Steelers should be higher, and in all honesty, Penguins should be a lot lower.

The media-Packers love affair is starting to annoy me. I don't hate the Packers, in fact I respect the hell out of them, but I'm just getting tied of them being proclaimed the best at everything recently. Any list of franchise rankings in any category, fans, stadium, management, team, etc., they seem to be given #1 by default. In some cases they may deserve it but I know if this were before the 2011 playoffs I'm pretty sure they wouldn't be dominating at everything ever in the media's eyes...
