Has this been done before?

You start with the premise that at any given time, there's a "best team in all of sports" and work backwards from there. For instance, winning the Super Bowl, World Cup, World Series etc 3 years in a row, a team winning their respective championship would probably be able to safely assert that they're the greatest of all the sports teams in the world.

This would be an interesting and challenging job for statisticians. Many factors would be taken into consideration. Points over competitors, wins, even statistics of individual players.

Bettors could actually bet on any team in any sport to beat any other team in any other sport.

       Who would decide the rules? I see problems with a top golfer taking on a top cricket team. "It's not fair, one of them keeps picking up the ball and throwing it to one of the others!"   

       Other problem matches might be basketball vs. football, cycle racing vs. motor racing, high jump vs pole vault, rifle shooting vs. shot putt etc.

       By "intra" do you mean "inter"?
MaxwellBuchanan, Aug 31 2013
  

       Ahdunno. Intra means "all in" and inter means... ooh! A squirrel! On vacation in paradise, un- concerned about such things.

       You see, your entire edifice falls apart with "etc".

       In what way does paradise include squirrels?
Alterother, Aug 31 2013
  

       Paradise always includes squirrels... and frisbees and balls and sticks and interesting smells.
FlyingToaster, Aug 31 2013
  

       Ah, yes, now that is paradise. Unfortunately I don't meet all of the requirements for eligibility.
