The act of someone willingly making a sacrafice for the benefit of others.
There wasn't enough room in the car, so Jerry decided to take one for the team and stayed behind while the reast of us went to the big concert.

"Man, Jerry warned us that movie would suck, so he went to go see it before the rest of us just to make sure, and man was he right."
"Yeah man, he can really take one for the team.

an act where one brave soul in your group of male friends hits on the Nottie of a group of hotties so his friends can get their slide on later on that night. taking one for the team usually involves just talking to the nottie and laughing at her jokes and complimenting her (horrid) appearance, but it may be necessary to appease the nottie by getting your wacka wacka on with her...back at her place of course, so your roomates never see her.
yeah, i was totally working up my conversation with number one hottie when her nottie roomate showed up (again!), so i had to to have joey take one for the team.

The act of taking the obese chick in a bunch of hot chicks, so the the other guys can get laid. Unfortunately, there are very few men who will take one for the team, and with good reason. If you find one, let me know.
Champ over there gets to take one for the team, this time
