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 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/ goes on and on.....geography is everything.
