i also think it is impossible to have a real rivalry with fans who are largely indifferent to the game.

look at all the great long lasting rivalries in sports....im not sure how you can argue that geography doesnt play a major factor....there are very few examples where unlike cities have real rivalries....and almost no examples where the rivalries are formed by the players.

red sox/yankees, green bay/chicago, habs/nords, flyers/penguins.....it goes on and on.....geography is everything.
