Also i may agree on the Bears-Packers rivalry, but i dont think the Cowboys-Redskins is Bigger.than the 'Rust bowl' rivalry..................no way!!!!

Well over here in America they do these polls asking which rivalry is the greatest and of course other questions but almost always the answers come in the same.Sure as teams play well for awhile and they develop a new rival for awhile it stands out in the polls for example the Niners-Cowboys played each other in the 90ties in conference championship games a few times and they were on each other schedules for years every years like wise Niners -Packers but they don't become bigger rivalries than their true rival.The Rams will always been the Niners main nemesis just like the Cowboys-Redskins will always hate each other more than they hate any other team.So the Cowboys-Redskins and the Bears-Packers are always voted in the top two or three in these polls,at least over here in the States anyway.

well i suppose its all down to which team you follow. in the US or UK. Redskins and Cowboys are gonna say its their rivalry.
Niners and Rams rivalry goes back to when the Rams were in LA Etc .Etc.Etc
But being a Browns fan ( even if i live in the UK ) i hate Steelers !! and always look forward to Beating them . having said that they didnt steal our team away ( pardon the pun ) so i also hate the Ravens just as much.......

Yes on a personal level it is about who you follow,for the masses in the States it's always been Bears-Packers and the Cowboys-Redskins.They also garner the highest ratings on tv when they play which is telling sign and they are always the national games being televised in all markets along with the local team.

If he EVER gets into the HOF, even after death, I will be driving down to canton to shout my thoughts to him or whoever gives the speech for him in the case of death, be it his wife, children, or NFL personality. That man and anyone who support him deserve all the hate of the Browns fans.

It seems safe to say he isn't going into the HOF but I guess stranger things have happened.They may have to move Canton out of Ohio if they ever did induct him!

You may be right about him being 10 foot under .... i think they're waiting till he dies , thinking there wont be a big objection to a dead person being inducted ...........wanna bet :mad::mad:

Sadly i think he will get in at somepoint but he will have to be dead before they even try it. If we were to win a SB in next few years he may get past the semi final vote, they will think that we are ready to forgive but there is more chance of peace in the middle east than that happening :D
