1. Champions league..
Soccer..
No one has ever defended it since 1989..

2. MLB..
Only cause its such a major crapshoot..

3. College basketball..
Another crapshoot..

4.Euro cup more soccer:)
Virtually any of the 16 teams that qualify have a chance to win it..

5. Super Bowl..
Probably the deepest most talented league in the world..
But if you get a top 2 seed.. It's just 3 matches to win the whole she-bang..

6.Rugby World Cup..
No one has ever defended it..

7. World Cup soccer:)
It's almost impossible to win it once.. Let alone back to back..

8. Premier league title:)
It's alittle easier, but it doesn't happen alot..

9. College football..
Once you have a dynasty, you are set to collect alot of trophies..

10. NBA..
The best team should dominate in best of 7 format..


Honorable mention..
Tennis.. Not hard..
Maybe federer made it look to easy..


1. The English Championship.
no team has ever defended it, and no team ever will. since, if you win it, you're no longer in the league.

2. The World Cup
the last time there was a repeat winner was 1962. since then, a lot more parity exists. it's extremely hard to repeat

3. NHL
a lot of parity, and a huge grind from year to year

4. Euro cup, why not

5. College basketball

6. MLB hasn't happened since the yankees dominated

7. NFL not since the Pats

rugby who cares. the premier league is basically a three team league at the top, very easy to repeat. NBA, see: Miami. College football see Bama


MLB is waaaaaay too low..
The yanks and the blue jays are the only team to defend their titles in the past 25 years..
It's awfully difficult..
You never know if random pitchers are going to get hot..

College basketball is similar to baseball in the sense it's a total crapshoot..
In a one game series anything can happen..
Duke has had some amazing teams over the years..
But even duke has a hard time dominating this tournament..

NFL is hard to repeat..
Because of the talent in the league..
Alot of times teams that make the Super Bowl one year, don't even make the playoffs the next year..

Very sneaky on the English championship..


there is nothing above MLB that should be below it.

except for euro which I meant to put champions league, but whatever.

you have the premier league on your list. that is probably one of the leagues where there is the most repeat champions. same with college football and NBA. they deserve no spot on any list like this.

sorry but, my number 1 is impossible, and the hardest. nothing you can say can refute this.

anyway yeah I got other things to do so thats it.


Lets just make this a 2 argument TD..


oops forgot about this. my bad. so lets see

my picks are better

too lazy to make a real argument

NHL should be one there. With parity in the league and the grind of going all the way, it is now nearly impossible to repeat, let alone make the playoffs, the next season.

But i don't know anything about half the crap you mentioned so i will abstain from taking this one

September 24, 2013  08:06 PM ET

Rookie of the Year.



I win.

I don't think right was being that "sneaky" with the Championship pick. You could say the same thing about League 1, League 2 or any other of the 100s of lower division soccer leagues. If right was THAT smart he would have listed only lower division leagues.

September 26, 2013  09:00 AM ET

Frog, in 21 seasons, there have been 7 repeat champs in the EPL. That doesn't seem that difficult. Twice a team won three championships in a row. And 13 of 21 league titles have been won by Manchester United, so if you're United, it's down-right easy.

September 26, 2013  10:26 PM ET

No one has ever defended it since 1989..


No one ever... since...

Sounds like an oxymoron to me.

Fair enough. So, why didn't you just say that in the first place and not make it seem like your vote was based on Froggy's non 3rd argument?
