Which franchise is the best sports team ever? Which single season sports team is the bestest one in history?

And why isn't your answer the UConn Huskies (women's basketball team)?

@tsarstepan,
The 1972 Miami Dolphins have the only undefeated season record in the NFL.

@tsarstepan,
How are you judging it? Popularity, score, upsets?

For people who like cricket this seasons' Ashes competition was the most exciting ever, going right to the wire. The cricket World Cup was similar.

If we're talking leagues it has to be the premiership because it's the most popular sporting league in the World. Liverpool won last season, but Manchester United are probably the most popular but Real Madrid and Barcelona are also right up there.

Southampton then. They're in the premiership and situated in a beautiful part of the World with lots of friendly and wonderful people, and me.

Clearly The New York Yankees Baseball teams of the decades are the all time best.
The 1998 Yankees in particular were spectacular!

In the exciting game of hockey, I am torn between The New York Rangers (the Blueshirts have been wonderful ...for the most part) and The Pittsburgh Penguins.

In football 🏈 (American), I stay with The Pittsburgh Steelers.

I'd agree that EPL is world's best known league, but SouthHam? No. Just no.

Cool thing about sports is that everyone has their own interests and tastes.
Football... Patriots own the 21st century.
Baseball... Yankees whether you like them or not.
Basketball... Depends on the decade I think. Used to be Celtics/Lakers then was the Bulls, then Charlotte or whichever team LeBron was on that year
Hockey... I don't follow Hockey enough to know what team is most famous... Rangers? Maple Leafs maybe?
Rugby... All-Blacks
EPL... Man United
Championship League... Fulham (just tossing that in there...)
La Liga... argue your team but we all know it is Real Madrid
Cricket... I mean does anyone argue that it isn't India?
Golf... I miss Woods dominating golf.
Tennis... What's the date? Who knows who is on top now...
F1... Ferrari (I miss Schumacher...)

I am sure there are other sports, but does anyone really care?

I can't see comparing teams decades apart in their glory, because there are different dynamics with each era.

They could - no one outside of New England would like to see it - but that would kind of make this question pretty straight forward what the answer would be

That's Richard Osman, celebrity Fulham fan.

He's one of the co hosts of quiz show Pointless.
