I'd have to go with the Arizona Cardinals. In their entire existance, of 80 some years, they've only won 2 playoff games, and they have only been to 5 or 6 of them. They have only had 2 winning seasons in the past 20 some years.

I also mention the New Orleans Saints. They haven't been around as long, but they have a pretty sorry history. In recent years, they have started out strong only to collapse later in the season. Before that, they were just pitiful. I'm looking at the records, and of the 36 seasons they've had, they've had 6 winning seasons. They've won one playoff game in their entire existance.

Nobody mentioned the Detroit Tigers?? Come on, in 20 years they went form winning the world series to becoming the laughing stock of baseball... Outlook seems to be that they will stay that way for a while as well...

Miss Cleo told me damnit!!! :D

Baseball:
Milwaukee Brewers. They have a great stadium now, but they can no longer afford to pay a team worth puting on the field. They have had some great years, but as a general trend, they have sucked.

Football:
Cardinals, for sure.

Basketball:
Clippers

Hockey:
Edmonton Oilers (long run team)
Minnesota Wild (recent)

Naw. If you've won a championship, that automatically disqualifies the team from the running.
The Bears won something?
What the heck? You don't remember the super-bowl shuffle? 1985 Bears!

Edit: Quite possibly the best team in the history of the NFL.

No, I don't follow sports much at all. I just see how much they suck since I moved to IL and thought maybe they have always sucked. :)

I don't think the 72 Dolphins were as good as the 85 Bears. The game changed significantly over those 13 years..and oh yeah, the 85 Bears won more games than the 72 Dolphins :)
