Is Atlanta A Bad Sports City?

I don't know if any of you saw the bit on 11Alive after the Super Bowl. They addressed the national media's perception that Atlanta is a "Bad Sports Town". But they offered some nice feedback on why we may be perceived this way. Here are some bullet points for what they had to saw.

- Attendance rankings: Falcons 15th/32, Braves 15/30, Hawks 22/30, Thrashers 28/30

- 156 seasons/ 1 Championship

- The teams haven't been in the city as long as say New York or Boston so the fan base doesn't go back very far

- If you think the last 10 years how many the teams in New York and Boston have won championships compared to the last 50 years for Atlanta teams: New York 3 championships from 2002-2012, Boston 6 championships from 2002-2012, Atlanta 1 championship from 1962-2012
