    Who is the Reds biggest rival?

    After years of hating the Braves, it just isn't the same anymore. Maybe because all of those bandwagon fans have been dissappearing, or maybe the Reds just don't play them enough anymore. The rivalry doesn't seem to be there.

    So who do you consider the biggest arch rival to the Reds? Cubs, Cards, Sto's? Maybe Cleveland, or Carl Lindner?

    Dodgers will always be my most hated rival, obviously the schedule has killed it though. I guess the Cubs

    Doesn't that just bite? I loved not liking the Dodgers. It fit right in with not liking the Lakers.

    The most disliked team in my point-of-view as a Reds fan is Cleveland. I just don't like the way Indians fans act. It always seems like the little Indians hitters (Belliard, Crisp, Vizquel) beat up on the Reds every year, which irks me. I think the Indians are the reds biggest rivals.

    Since I grew up in So.Cal. as a Reds fan I can relate to this. I hated anything to do with Dodger "Blue". And that Dodger "Blue" thing always sounded so gay too. Not that there's anything wrong with that. But boy did I hate them. The only thing I could ever stand about them was Vin Scully. We were the Big Red Machine and the Dodgers and their fans had to come out with The Big Blue Wrecking Crew. Ohhh How I hated them.

    But today, the way the Cardinals have dominated us and the way George Grande always talks so highly of them, I have to say the Cardinals. :thumbdn:

    Personally, I don't think the Reds have a rival.

    From 1980-2004, the Reds have managed to make the playoffs twice, 1990 and 1995.

    1990 NLCS 4-2
    1990 WS 4-0 (may be awhile for another WS )
    1995 NLDS 3-0
    1995 NLCS 0-4

    Total 11-6


    The NL Central is one of the toughest divisions to win since it has the Cardinals, Astros, and Cubs so the drought may continue.

    Y'know, Cali...before realignment I hated the Dodgers like no NL team. In fact, I'd rather see the Reds lose a game to the Cardinals than give up a single run to the Dodgers.

    But since the Reds are in the NL Central now, I'd have to say the Cardinals are my most hated team even if LA isn't the Reds' biggest rival anymore..

    And disliking the Cards is too bad because we have a number of Cards Nation visitors who are real assets to the board.

    That being said...I like MattyMo. I hate the St. Louis Cardinals.

    MattyMO= Good

    St. Louis Cardinals= BAD

    The Cardinals are a great rivalry, but I just can't hate them the way I hate the Cubs.

    I wish the Reds still played the Dodgers enough for that rivalry to continue. It was fun hating the Dodgers.

    Cubs or Cards. Indians perhaps as well.

    But the Fowl Ones and the Hairy Babies still get the blood boiling.

    Chip R thinks it's the Chubs too. The proximity of the two teams and the Chubs newly found arrogance makes it a great rivalry.

    Re: Who is the Reds biggest rival?

    If you ask the same question to these teams, do you think any of them would say the Reds. I doubt it. Maybe Cleveland?

    Cubs vs. Cards
    LA vs. San Fran
    Cleveland vs. Chi Sox?
