One U.S. city set a new record for total losses in the Big Four sports leagues: The NFL, the NBA, the NHL, and Major League Baseball . . . and it wasn’t Cleveland. The city with the losing-est year is DETROIT, which saw 226 losses in 2019. The Lions, Pistons, Red Wings, and Tigers combined to go 114-226-1 in the calendar year (the previous record was 219 by New York back in 1962). If you’re interested in the complete breakdown:  The Tigers lost 114 games, the Lions lost 12, and the Pistons and Red Wings combined to lose 100.
