The Best Sports Franchises Of All Time

List Criteria: The greatest professional teams. No minor league teams, iconic collegiate teams okay

The best sports franchises in sports history, ranked by sports fans for sports fans. Most teams have a dynasty that only lasts for a few years. But, a great sports franchise is consistently successful on and off the playing field, earning loyalty and respect from the team's fans and the sports world as a whole. Anyone can vote for their favorite franchises on this list, or add their own list of the best sports franchises to these rankings. So, whether you're a hardcore sports fan or just a fan of how certain teams play the game, this is the place to release your inner SportsCenter commentator.
