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.

This should be a no brainer,not only do they play other countries every year,usually the best of the rest but they have dominated the sport for over 100 years as opposed to the other sports teams on this list who only dominaated for 1,2,3,4 years.

2 1996 Chicago Bulls (Basketball)

Any team with Michael jordan is the greatest ever. 1996 chicago bulls team greatest pro team in sports history. 1982 North Carolina tarheels greatest college team of all time. 1992 Olympic dream team greatest team ever assembled! Experts on espn can back this comment up.

boston had great teams, same as lakers, but 96' bulls, jordan, pippen, rodman, kukoc is was something very special, extrodinary!

MICHAEL JORDAN IS MY FAVORITE ATHLETE EVER!
ANY TEAM WITH MICHAEL IS AWESOME AND DOMINANT.
THE BULLS WAS THE TEAM IN THE 90S, AND WON 6 CHAMPIONSHIPS BECAUSE OF JORDAN.
MICHAEL JORDAN IS AAWEESOME!

Wait... gotta update it to 73-9 WARRIORS

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 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.

7 1972 Miami Dolphins (American Football)

u gotta b kidding me man if that was the year of the new england patriots they would have won theier 4th bowl but they didnt lets go miami - billy556

They were undefeated, but many of them were close.

8 2007-2009 Melbourne Storm (Rugby League)

Still dominant in 2017 with them winning the grand final

They have been the most dominant NRL team since 2006

9 2001 Miami Hurricanes (American Football)

10 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

The Contenders

11 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

Ten years at the top of the ICC Test rankings. This team, collected from a group of tiny islands, had the entire world in a chokehold. Graham Gooch probably didn't expect the decade long tear these guys go on after he threatened to "make them grovel".

12 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 2008 Detroit Red Wings (Ice Hockey)
15 1968 UCLA Bruins (Basketball)
16 1979 USSR National Team (Ice Hockey)

Until they lost to the USA, they hadn't lost in nearly 50 games, winning 4 olympic titles

17 2000 Real Madrid (Soccer)
18 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?

19 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!

20 2001 Seattle Mariners (Baseball)

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

They won every head to head series. folded in the playoffs but the regular season was ridiculous

21 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.

22 1983-88 Edmonton Oilers (Ice Hockey)

Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier, Paul Coffee, Jari Kurri, Grant Fuhr... this team was STACKED! -

Name one other sporting team that has won 11 consecutive premierships. That's right, I didn't think so...

11 consecutive titles can't be argued with! - graham.clayton.906

31 1975-76 Cincinnati Reds (Baseball)

No doubt should be in the top five best teams in all sports ever -multiple gold gloves, hall of fame hitters, power, speed, above avg pitching, and coaching. Could beat any MLB team any year in a seven game series!

32 1990's LSU Baseball Team
33 2014 New Zealand All Blacks (Rugby Union)

Undefeated in 2014. Over 85% win rate and one of the oldest teams in sport (1884)

42 2009 North Carolina Tar Heels (Basketball)

Undeafeated pro football team with otto graham and Marion motley and coaching genius of paul brown

45 2011 Boston Bruins (Hockey)
46 2005-2016 Kansas Jayhawks

KU has just been kings of the Big 12 in basketball. 12 straight Big 12 regular season titles...12 straight and counting. Just one away from tying UCLA for the record. And don't go and say it was easy either. UCLA only won because the league sucked and were led by John Wooden. KU has Baylor,Iowa state,West Virginia, OU,Texas. All who are decent teams. And are led by Bill Self who is the John Wooden of the 21st century.
