Most Dominant Sports Teams Ever

The Top Ten

1 1903 - 2013 New Zealand All Blacks (Rugby Union)

In rugby union (less played worldwide than football, played more internationally than the sports played by the US teams on this list that are all part of domestic competitions rather than international) there is only one gold standard - the All Blacks. With a ridiculously high win percentage over the history of the international game, any loss by the All Blacks is an upset. If the ABs played every international team, or every team that qualified for the world cup, in a manner similar to the 96 Bulls they would be shocked with a win % as low as the Bulls. The consistency with which a country as small as New Zealand turns out rugby players that stand head and shoulders above the rest of the world is astounding.

Ridiculous that the All Blacks are rated number 5. The first three teams in this poll all played on an American national league level, whilst the All Blacks and Brasil play on an international level. International meaning that they play the best teams of the world in their sport. Opposed to just playing within their own countries, making their achievements greater. The All Blacks should be clearly rated number 1, as they have dominated an entire sport world wide, for not only a few seasons or a decade but an entire century. This poll is abit of a joke lol

You need to understand from an outside point of view, this team plays the top 4 teams in the world every year, and wins against those respected teams every year, and has been doing this for over a century. over 100 years the all blacks has been doing this, the sheer level of consistency is why this team is the most dominant of all time. you can't have a team that has one good season on top of a team that has 100 years of good seasons. it doesn't add up, look at the history books.

People need to take their US blinkers off. Sure, the Chicago Bulls were a great team as were some of the other football, baseball teams here. But they were playing in a US only competition, and were dominant for shorter periods only (years or maybe 1 decade maximum).
The All Blacks have been the most dominant team in world rugby for the last century. This is in international competition, not domestic only - and they usually only play the other top rated sides. No easy games against low ranking nations.
To have this dominance, and an all-time winning percentage of over 77% - and have winning records against every single country they have ever played - sustained over a century - they surely are the most dominant sports team ever

2 1996 Chicago Bulls (Basketball)

3 2007 New England Patriots (American Football)

This team absolutely man handled all of the NFL. They did things in modern day football that were designed to never happen. Don't let the Superbowl loss make you forget how they reduced every team and great teams to rubble week in and out. All while setting multiple records. Forget the '72 Dolphins they couldn't hold a candle to the '07 patriots. - lopedogg55

Greatest sports team in history to not win the title! Terrible luck just hit them... In my opinion they are the best team ever.

4 1998 New York Yankees (Baseball)

The 1927 are the greatest ever in sports, let me just say that. This team deserves to be ahead of the 2007. The Yankees won 114 in the regular season then went 11-2 in the playoffs. The Patriots absolutely dominated the regualar season, but you're only dominant when you don't bow to anyone, New England was the only the second best that year.

This 1998 Yank team was the best of the best in sport history.

Dude the '98 Yankees went (including the playoffs) 125-50! The only team that should be ahead of that is the '72 dolphins, and get the '07 pats outta there! They CHOKED in SBXLII - andrewXmetallica92

5 2002 Brazil National Team (Soccer)

The best foot ball team I have seen in the decade

Ronaldo, Rivaldo, Roberto Carlos...?

Great team back then with Ronaldo, rivaldo, reberto carlos, marcos, cafe, ze reberto and juniohn and know with new special talentss in marcelo and KAKA

6 1972 Miami Dolphins (American Football)

8 1995 Nebraska Cornhuskers (American Football)

We also didn't get busted for paying our players. MIami should automatically be taken off this list

This should probably be #2 to the 1927 Yankees. Definitely the most dominant college team of all time. Only Miami homers don't agree with this. Everyone with a brain knows that just like Jordan and pelé, the only real debate is who is #2. It is very unlikely we will see a team that dominant in college football ever again. That team was Tom Osborne's gift to the world and true football fans are endebted to him for it.

9 2001-2003 Brisbane Lions (AFL)

Three should've been 4 premierships in a row in a league where even getting a chance to play for one is EXTREMELY difficult - AFL

Most Dominant team for 3 years straight YEWW

10 1959 Boston Celtics (Basketball)

I think the celtics are the best team in all of sports they won 11 titles in 13 years and 8 in a row

The Contenders

11 1968 UCLA Bruins (Basketball)
12 2008 Detroit Red Wings (Ice Hockey)
13 2008-2009 FC Barcelona (Soccer)

They domainted every thing from the liga to the champions league with their beautiful tiki taka under the great pep guardiola and continued to dominate till 2012

14 1979 USSR National Team (Ice Hockey)
15 1970's and 80's West Indian Cricket Team

With players like Richards, Loyd, Garner, Marshall, Ambrose... They terrorized and demolished all oppositions home and away

16 1985 Chicago Bears (American Football)

Walter Payton on offense, Mike Singletary on defense and Mike Ditka leading the pack

You lose 1 game all year (15-1), allow only 10 points in the playoffs ( 10 in the Superbowl) in a 46-10 blowout...Am I missing something here?

17 2000 Real Madrid (Soccer)
18 2007 Geelong Cats (AFL)

Gary Ablett jnr = Best player, Chapman= Champion, Bartel= Champion, Selwood= Champion at just 20 yrs old & Future Captain, Max Rooke: Great player & tough as guts, Scarlett: Champion, Enright: Great Defender, Harley: Brilliant Captain, Ottens: Perfect ruckman, Mackie: Worst player in team and still a good as player, and many more, THIS IS THE MOST DOMINANT TEAM EVER!

19 1996 Kentucky Wildcats (Basketball)

They won the championship. Nine players went to the NBA. The "second" team reached the finals the next two years, winning again in 1998.

20 2001 Seattle Mariners (Baseball)

116 wins... we may never see that again.
