I've said it previously in a similar quiz, but can you add the team to win the most total NFL Championships, the Green Bay Packers? Why should no championships before the Super Bowl count? The Steelers have won the most Super Bowl Championships, but the Packers have a total of 13 titles (4 Super Bowls and 9 NFL). When I brought this up before, someone mentioned the champions of the AAFC or AFL before those leagues merged with the NFL, but as they were not NFL champions they don't count here. So the champions of the NFL from 1920-1965 would count, but from 1966 to now it would be only the Super Bowl Champion that counted. Also, why is there no mention of the MLB Manager with the most World Series wins, or the NHL Head Coach? In MLB it's a tie with 7 between Yankees Joe McCarthy and Casey Stengel, while in the NHL it is Scotty Bowman, who won 9 (5 with the Canadiens, 1 with the Penguins, and 2 with the Red Wings). By the way I am a NY Giants fan, not a Packers fan, so there is no bias.

Perhaps it's changed since you wrote your comment, but it says "Super Bowl wins". You can certainly make your own quiz that takes into account pre Super Bowl championships.

It was probably me that argued with you last time as well, but the reason pre-merger NFL titles are treated differently is that the Super Bowl title is a completely separate entity from "NFL championship". There were, in fact, 2 teams that won the NFL championship in the late 60s (Colts and Vikings) that went on to lose the Super Bowl to the AFL champ. It's but one of many reasons why it's best to separate the Super Bowl era from earlier NFL, AFL, or AAFC titles. By that measure, the Packers still blew the doors off any other team prior to the merger with 11 (including 2 years in which they also won the Super Bowl), but their titles prior to 1970 should never be commingled with their Super Bowl trophies.

I don't think that the Premier League really belongs on that list. All the other categories represent the greatest trophies one can win at this kind of sport while the Premier League is just one of many good leagues.

I see your point, but I'm not sure I agree totally. Yes, there are many domestic leagues in Soccer, but if you go by this rule, then you could arguably discount all of the American sports on this quiz. The only truely International sports/events on here are the World Cup, the Olympics, Golf, Tennis, Boxing, Cycling and maybe F1.

Right ... I surrender. (Although I gather that when it comes to Baseball, Football and Hockey, the American leagues essentially represent the best in the world. But I don't know too much about that.)

For a long time the Olympic gold didn't mean much in hockey because it was supposed to be an amateur competition. Plus the Soviets were sending in veteran professional players while America fielded a team of honest amateurs (as the Olympic rules up to Barcelona mandated). Yet they still managed to win that one year, the "miracle on ice."

Gandalf, I think you'd get a lot of arguments from the players themselves that a Stanley Cup win would be bigger than the Olympics. They're different of course, but I figure your post is just a dig at the US for some reason. (The last US Olympic team blew it, but in recent years, they have come very close to winning so you can't exactly say they are "far from winning".)

joeythelemur I can tell you that at least for most Canadian players, and probably for players from the states, Russia and other big contenders that the Olympics are seen as the bigger deal. Crosby has won the cup twice, but the moment every canadian remembers is the golden goal.

Any Canadian worth their salt would rather see their NHL team win the Stanley Cup than see Canada win another Olympic gold. We already know Canada as a nation has the best hockey players, the Stanley Cup (for fans at least) is by far the bigger prize.

Yes, maybe it would be more logical to include the Copa America as well, since the top teams there are on equal foot with the european ones. Plus, it might come as a surprise to some that uruguay has the most wins.

I just wish that they wouldn't call their domestic competitions a "World Series", or the winners as "World Champions''. For all intents and purposes, "American Champions'' yes, World Champions - when the rest of the World is not competing - NO!

Totally agree with this re: baseball, but for the other two, it's debatable anyway. For the NFL, there isn't a comparable league anywhere else, so it doesn't really matter. For the NBA, maybe the Euro leagues would be competitive, but I doubt it; most of the top players come to the US for the cash. So while it bugs me, it's probably fair to say the NBA champion is the world champion. NHL doesn't apply as they call it the Stanley Cup Champion.

The best baseball players in the world play in the MLB. 27.5% of the players are from outside the US. 18 different nations are represented and there are 238 total international players. If you want to call the World Cup a more "representative" international event I might say that's one way to change it, but it would be the equivalent of the Olympics in hockey. Its a great achievement to win, but isn't the summit of its sport; the World Series is that.

I know nothing about cricket but would love to watch a few matches - my love affair with Midsomer Murders has peaked my interest after seeing the game played several times in different episodes. It appears that the ICC has sold exclusive programming rights in the US to the Willow channel, which is only available through paid subscription.

Cycling was on here before. The level of whining about Lance Armstrong's inclusion was epic. Personally, I've written off the whole sport as tainted

Rugby would probably be a good addition.

I may try to create some other quizzes, but probably not about sport. Which doesn't mean that I don't like sport and taking quizzes like this one. I'm sure you understand that it's rather frustrating for a Belgian that half of the answers of a quiz named "All time sports champions" are about mostly american sports. I'm just asking for slight adjustments. As for cycling, I understand your point of view, but Armstrong is not the only cyclist in history... if you change your mind, you could include Eddy Merckx or the country who won the most world championships, something like that ;).

Thanks for making the quiz, but I'm not sure why the NHL is given such short shrift here.
