I realize when there is a ranking of anything, there is going to be discussion of which is better, and debate over the methods used.
While going over ESPN's rating of professional sports franchises, one of the categories that was rated was "Championships", defined as "Titles already won or expected -- soon". The rankings were as follows:
1. Arizona Diamondbacks
1. Anaheim Angels
3. Detroit Red Wings
4. New York Yankees
Now maybe I am mistaken, but didn't the Arizona Diamondbacks and Anaheim Angels each only win one championship recently? Haven't the Yankees one multiple championships recently, and are always one of leading teams in the league? In the same respect, didn't the Red Wings win the Championship last year, and multiple times in the past few years, and have been one of the favorites year in and year out?
