Credit the Yankees for working within the highest-bidder framework of MLB, but that doesn't make them the good guy. 

New York has flexed its muscles constantly, willingly throwing money at every great player to build unstoppable teams. There may be no other team that figuratively buys championships like the Yankees. They unabashedly flaunt their money as they crush your team year after year. They are the true "Evil Empire" of sports.

While they are limited by a salary cap in the NFL, the New England Patriots find a way to destroy opponents like the Death Star destroys planets. Masterminding the effort is head coach and Emperor Bill Belichick, who has incomparable knowledge of football. Tom Brady orchestrates everything on the field, burying teams with Darth Vadar-like brutality.

The Patriots haven't had a losing season since 2000, and have only missed the playoffs twice in that span. That consistent excellence is what makes them the "Evil Empire" of all sports.
