UPDATE: Okay, I screwed up my math. The Chiefs winning percentage has actually been .323, not the .219 I originally calculated

Assuming the Chiefs lose today, and not factoring in the Royals almost-certain loss, since 2007:

Chiefs winning percentage: .219 [Update: it's actually .323]
Royals winning percentage: .433

Chiefs
2007: .250
2008: .125
2009: .250
2010: .625
2011: .438
2012: .250

Royals
2007: .426
2008: .463
2009: .409
2010: .415
2011: .438
2012: .449


In this time span, the Chiefs have had one winning season (2010), while the Royals have to go back to 2003 to find their last winning season.

Just thought it was an interesting stat comparison.

In all fairness, however, the day-by-day parity of the MLB pretty much ensures that no team can have a winning percentage less than .300, which the Chiefs have done 4 times since 2007.

Actually, this is officially the saddest thing:

The .264 win percentage for the Lions this decade is not just bad, it will go down as the worst in NFL history with a minimum of 100 games played. Sorry, 1970s Saints and 1980s Buccaneers, your spot in history will be supplanted by the 2000s Lions.

Worst win percentage in any decade in NFL

Team Decade Win pct.
Lions 2000s .264
Cardinals 1950s .282
Broncos 1960s .287
Bucs 1980s .299
Saints 1970s .301

Okay, I did my math wrong.

The Chiefs winning percentage during this time is actually .323, which is still quite lower than the Royals winning percentage.

ROFL

After further review, it's still pretty sad, but not as sad as I originally determined.

I divided by the wrong whole number.
