Top Ten Rivalries In Sports


The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Flamengo vs Fluminense
42Flames vs Oilers Hockey

The Battle of Alberta Canada!

My vote moved this up from 81 to 59!

43Steelers vs Ravens

Should be number 1. Everybody in America knows this rivalry regardless if they watch football or not. Way too low on the list!

It's a rivalry because the Ravens used to be the Browns. It should be way up there.

There are a bunch of teams I've never even heard of, bandwagon rivalries, non contact sports rivalries and inter conference rivalries all before this one? Records aside the Steelers Ravens games are always exciting. The ravens swept the Steelers this year but they suck while the Steelers are actually a good team. P.S go Steelers

What, how the hell is this not even close to top ten?

44Kentucky v. Louisville College
45Brazil v. Argentina

Oh no! Its Brazil vs France. Look at the times both have denied each other to be in the the top 4!

46Germany vs Netherlands Football

I don't think any of the upper 10 belong there because the worst rivalries are the Eastern-European soccer rivalries which cost hundreds of casualties yearly (! ) For a sport!

47Bill Russell vs Wilt ChamberlainV1 Comment
48White Sox v. Cubs Baseball

Chicago is a city split in two. The North Side and the South. At EVERY game between these two you can expect an intense atmosphere between not only the teams but especially the fans. It gets crazy!

49Torino vs Juventus
50Yankees v. Mets
51New South Wales vs Queensland Rugby League

How is this not at least in the top 20! Australia's greatest sporting rivalry! Mate against Mate - State against State!

52Rangers V Celtic (Old firm)

Fiercest and greatest rivalry ever

53England vs. Australia Cricket

Dating back to 1882, this is the grand-daddy of all international sporting rivalries.

They have their own rivalry. Check out the Ashes dude. All for the the little Trophy full of Ashes.

54Capitals vs Penguins

Who cares if the Pens always wins, but its Crosby vs Ovechkin

55Dan Marino vs Joe Montana
56Springboks vs All Blacks

The greatest rugby union rivalry in the history of the sport! Spanning competition of a century, these two teams have settled as the number 1 and number 2 sides of all time, constantly replacing one another in the rankings and always keeping true to the spirit of rugby.

I am an all out All Blacks fan. Every time they play the Springboks though, I know it is going to be a match to remember.

57Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur

Well, You have a guaranteed riot at north London twice a year when these two play...

58Geelong vs Hawthorn AFL

To any Geelong supporters who may read this- I'm a loyal Hawker, and you can say that hawthorn supporters take losses badly, but when we beat you 2013? All my Geelong supporter 'friends' were hiding under rocks. Make of that what you will
