Most Dominant Sports Teams Ever
The Top Ten
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
What comment can I add that hasn't already been said, only one or two other teams here that even look beyond a few years, let alone over a century!
All Blacks got to be number 1. No ifs and buts. The poll too American centric. The All Blacks dominate for over a century not just a few years. I am not even a rugby fan. New Zealand only have 4 mil people to boot and 2 mil males.V 53 Comments
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!
72-10 record thats all I have to say babyV 3 Comments
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.
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
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
I don't care how much they cheated they were still dominant - CrowdedChisel
Still dominant in 2017 with them winning the grand final
They have been the most dominant NRL team since 2006
Greatest college football team ever, with the 1971 Husker team close behind. Totally dominate in every phase of the game and never had a team challenge them. Destroyed #2 Florida in the Fiesta bowl 62-24. I am a huge college football fan, and doubt that there will never be another team like the 1995 Huskers. The backups in "95" may have been ranked in the top 5, they were that good!
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.
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.
2016-17 Panthers will go 19-0
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".
With players like Richards, Loyd, Garner, Marshall, Ambrose... They terrorized and demolished all oppositions home and away
I don't know how they ain't first but they should be best team ever almost all of these guys went pro
The best collection of colllege football atheletes ever
95 skers would rekt 01 hurricanes any day any year bring it. you got nothing mate.
14 from 19 competiions wins
The best football team (soccer) of all time
Still dominating at present.
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
I think the celtics are the best team in all of sports they won 11 titles in 13 years and 8 in a row
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
Datsyuk was the only one mentioned on this team...Patrick Roy never played for Detroit
PAVEL DATSYUK STEVE YSERMAN GORDIE HOWE AND PATRICK ROY
Easily the best college team of all time, with easily the best college player of all-time, Lew Alcindor [Kareem Abdul-Jabbar], whose UCLA teams lost only 2 games in 4 years.
Also the best college basketball coach of all time, John Wooden, who won 10 NCAA national championships in 12 years.
Until they lost to the USA, they hadn't lost in nearly 50 games, winning 4 olympic titles
The defense changed the way NFL offenses approached the game. The 46 defense spelled doom for the traditional pro-set offense the NFL commonly ran in the 80s. The Dolphins relied on Dan Marino's super-quick release and a one-game early version of the spread offense to hand the Bears their one defeat that year (also being without starting QB Jim McMahon was a big factor). When it comes to the word "dominating" though, the '85 Bears simply demolished and demoralized teams. Starting quarterbacks would be routinely knocked out of games, and over the years, that approach to defense was gradually legislated out of the game by league, both to promote player safety and to further encourage the passing game.
It was a perfect storm of volatile personalities and talent across the board who, for one season (and many thought it should have been three or four), left not only an indelible impression on the sports world but drew in the mainstream public like few sports teams ever had, before ...more
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?
DELETE THAT FIRST ONE PLEASE - chickennoodledoop
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!
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
They won the championship. Nine players went to the NBA. The "second" team reached the finals the next two years, winning again in 1998.
Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier, Paul Coffee, Jari Kurri, Grant Fuhr... this team was STACKED! -
Should be #1
They were awesome
Undefeated in 2014. Over 85% win rate and one of the oldest teams in sport (1884)
The epitome of world dominance.
Won 11 consecutive premierships. Name me one other team in the history of all sports that can say that they have done that?
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
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!
Most dominant sports team in history.
Read these names: Darren Lockyer, Billy Slater, Cameron Smith, Johnathan Thurston, Cooper Cronk, Greg Inglis, Sam Thaiday, Darius Boyd, Matt Scott, Dave Taylor, Justin Hodges - CHAMPIONS!
Won everything through an entire decade
Formed in 1996, last. 1997 6th. Next 20 years, 17 times in the semi finals including a record 8 titles. It's all about consistency for over 2 decades.
This team won’t get the votes, but what they did puts these other records to shame...
Taiwan Little League Baseball was a juggernaut in the 1970’s, winning an astonishing 10 championships between 1969 to 1981. Their best team was 1973 Tainan City.
This team threw no-hitters in ALL of their tournament games, AND outscored their opponents 57-0.
Okay now what were you saying...?
never a doubt since opening day that they were gonna go all the way!
Won the currie cup a record 5 times in a row, from 1982 - 1986. This has never been done by any other team in a competition that has been running for over a 100 years
Last undefeated team...ALL 5 starters went pro including back to back number one selection
The most dominant and the best hockey team of the era. Won the Olympic gold medal a record 6 consecutive times.
