I was wondering about good (or evil) rivalry on Fumbbl.
Are you aware about a well deployed rivalry between coaches and/or teams?
I'm pretty sure there are a few (or maybe a lot) and I'd like the community to share it, thanks!!!

The established leagues are chock-full of these. They change in character and nature over the years, both as the coaches develop separately and then get more games against each other, and as the composition of the leagues changes as coaches come and go. But over any span of a few seasons in most of the larger or better-known leagues, you see these things develop, generally either as a result of championship/playoff drama, or as a result of two coaches in the same small pool at similar skill levels competing for the prize season-after-season. The more stable the league, the more intense the rivalries get.

In the NBFL, we've had lots of really great rivalries over the seasons. Like, way too many to count. I've been part of some really good ones, myself, but there have been several across the divisions over the years. Most of the best ones are divisional or conference dominance battles, but not always. Like, the San Foulcisco '49ers and the Seattle Werehawks had a long-running rivalry as two Necromantic teams that played mirror-matches against each other regularly. It didn't hurt that both teams were headlined by bizarre freak players, either. Sadly, that rivalry got busted up this season when the Werehawks' coach had to take a break. But there will be new ones springing up in that one's place, you know?

Major rivalries I've been part of in leagues:
Slam Diego State Smacktecs vs Fresno Red-Wave: conference rivalry, lasted 3 seasons.
Slam Diego State Smacktecs vs TCU Horned Rats: conference rivalry, lasted several seasons (not sure how many).
Slam Diego State Smacktecs vs BYU Boys: two similar teams who met in a few big games.
Slam Diego State Smacktecs vs Wisconsin Honeygrues: championship rivalry between two top teams.
Flashington Redheads vs anything by BillBrasky: he killed my captain and KO'ed me from the playoffs in season 10, so I killed 3 of his 4 draft picks on a brand new team and made him concede in season 13.
Flashington Redheads vs Philhala Arni: we traded debacles and division titles for a little while.
Flashington Redheads vs New York Giant Leeches: we beat them in the playoffs in season 12, so they KO'ed us in season 13.
Denvork Bronkorks vs San Dogo Chompers: 12 games and counting, including some big ones (once in the playoffs, during our season 18 championship run). We've both killed or retired each other's draft picks and stuff (we've killed a couple of their legends, even) and beaten each other in prime time games.
Denvork Bronkorks vs Oakland Elf Raiders: more divisional challenges; they embarrassed us a few times in our early going, but lately the shoe has mostly been on the other foot.
Denvork Bronkorks vs Tennesse Titanz: two storied Orc teams in the same conference. The Titanz held off retirement for a season just to play us, in what would be their final match. We only played twice, but both games were intense and highly-anticipated by the league writ large. We still carry the scars from the first match (a niggle on a good BOB), the only injury we've ever carried.
Coach JackassRampant vs the Green Ball Attackers: another "rivalry" that hasn't seen a lot of direct action, but has had consequences. In Season 11, Green Ball narrowly pulled out a win against Flashington, in an awesome match ultimately decided by two mistakes that are hard-to-spot even if you know what you're looking for. Flashington narrowly lost the division to Philhala that season, and Philhala won the championship. In Season 18, Denvork train-wrecked Green Ball early, precipitating GB's worst season (and only non-playoff season) to date. The next game could be the tiebreaker.

The Fling grudges: Zed vs. Kam (currently absent), Zed vs. Khor-Varik...^^

I have a nemesis, doclystria, who dealt me two painful defeats in the Majors, but that's too one way to count as a rivalry. Wink

Oh, what about Blood Sea Buccaneers (PainState) vs. Hellbound Charioteers (Arktoris)?

We're pretty equal in terms of coaching but approach the game differently with high elves being my OTP and undead being his. Lots of matches, lots of history. We even formalized the rivalry in the NCBB league!

Always a great time when it's me vs. MrNomad.

We still hold the highest combined TD in a match.
