    Losing title race

    For football, soccer, basketball or any other sport that has a title to win at the end of a season, would you rather your favorite team, come close but always choke when it counts, near the end of the season. OR would you rather a team just not be in contention cause they play average?

    Tough to say but I'm sure there's less disappointment when they're not in the race at all. No heart break to deal with. Kind of like Liverpool in the EPL this year. No one expected them to challenge for the title and then lose a heart breaker to Chelsea last week and then possible lose due to goal difference. Now Liverpool has to win its next 2 games while hoping for Manchester City to slip up and drop points via a draw or loss.

    Its cause of the disappointment liverpool is having cause of their in town rivals potentially handing the title to man city cause of their loss sat, that's making it worse.

    Having your team in contention for a title certainly raises expectations higher - which may make the loss more difficult to handle.

    On the other hand, back in the 90's the Buffalo Bills went to 4 consecutive Super Bowls only to lose all 4. The joke was that you spelled Bills as BILLLLs. On the flip side, 26 teams watched the Super Bowl on TV.

    I think I would rather have my team make it to the big game instead of being mediocre.
