A young Chiefs fan expresses his opinion of the rankings.

Forbes ranks Kansas City as a the sixth worst city to be a sports fan. Forbes writer Tom Van Ripper reasons: "Ticket prices are reasonable, but the Royals just can't shake over a decade's worth of the doldrums. The franchise has had just one winning season since 1995."

Forbes refuses to acknowledge soccer as a sport, denying the existence of the Kansas City Wizards. But neither does The Kansas City Star.

Here's the top 10:

1. Miami

2. San Diego

3. Indianapolis

4. New York

5. Cincinnati

6. KC

7. Charlotte

8. Tampa

9. Cleveland

10. Pittsburgh
