the yankees Was the question "what BASEBALL team", or just what team? If the latter, it is definitely NOT the Yankees: At a glance, the Boston Celtics (without actually looking at what games were played in 1979 and the first half of the 1989-90 season) had a winning percentage of .722 from the 1979-80 season to the 1988-89 season. The Yankees during the 80s had a winning percentage of .547. Once again, without researching games during 1979 and the latter half of 1989, the Edmonton Oilers winning percentage was .623 from 1979-80 to 1988-89. The San Francisco 49ers had a winning percentage of .688 during the 80s. Wishing thinking on the part of the obvious Yankees fan who provided the previous answer. It's possible the Yankees were the most successful BASEBALL team, but they certainly did not have the highest winning percentage of all sports. For that matter, the question might include teams not in North America, which further complicates the answer.

The Cowboys are the most successful team of the modern era (since 1960). They have won 5 Super Bowls and 8 Conference Championships. The Cowboys have more victories (40) on Monday Night Football than any other NFL team; the Miami Dolphins are 2nd with 39 and the San Francisco 49ers are 3rd with 38.[5] They hold NFL records for the most consecutive winning seasons (20, from 1966 to 1985) and most seasons with at least 10 wins (24). The team has earned the most postseason appearances (28, which includes another league record of 55 postseason games, winning 32 of them), the most appearances in the NFC Championship Game (14), and the most Super Bowl appearances (8), two more than any other NFL team. The Cowboys also played in 2 NFL championship games before the NFL's 1970 merger with the American Football League. The Cowboys became the first team in NFL history to win 3 Super Bowls in just 4 years (a feat that has been matched only once since, by the New England Patriots). They are also tied with the San Francisco 49ers and the Pittsburgh Steelers for having the most Super Bowl wins (5). The Cowboys' success and popularity has earned them the nickname "America's Team".
