The only premierships the Bears won was during the WW2 when most of the top players were fighting the war. I guess the Bears players were too soft to go to war. Looks like nothing changed over the years. When the tough get going to Bears run away.
Any side that was in a major champsionship for 100 odd years and could win a title are easierly the biggest chokers ever. Had some very good players throughout their whole history, only problem they had some big chokers too.
Atleast all the other sides have won some titles.

Parramatta would have to be up there aswell. There's no way they should have lost the first night grand final when they led by some ridiculous margin at half time. They have made numerous final 8s and somehow managed to screw it up.

The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!
WTF Wright? Newcastle were up massive at half time and Parra came back and nearly won it.

I am honest, and I'm a liar. I am vital, I am tired.
I am a free man, I am caught. From where I am, I see the top.
I am most importantly never concerned with what I am not.

Reckon Newcastle United would have had a shot at this back in the 90s. Blew a 12 point lead in the Premiership in 96. Splashed £15 million on the most prolific goalscorer in the league for the next season and still only finished 2nd. The two FA cup finals in the next two years, both lost (against far superior opposition, albeit).
I read that and thought omg, then realised, the NZ union team, right.Who are the biggest chokers in world sport?

I guess the reason why the Spanish football team would be linked to the fact a lot of the regions don't consider themself Spanish, one way not to make local friends in San Sebastian or Bilbao is to call them Spanish, when they are Basque and Spanish second, same in Cataluyna, Carles Puyol will probably (I say that because I've never met him obviously) tell you he is Catalan instead of Spanish. The same would probably be true in Galicia (far north-west, above Portugal) . Also if you include the history of Franco when he ruled with an iron fist and the civil war before that.
Brazil '98 should also be included as well.
The year before that, however, in 1998, was the most galling of all - we led the Doggies 18-2 in the preliminary final with 10 minutes to go...and lost.
For all that though, and I hate to say it, I think Greg Norman must sadly be at or near the top of the choking pile. How he hasn't won more than 2 majors I'll never know.
