There must be some intense ice hockey rivalries?

Borg -v- MacEnroe?
Conners -v- MacEnroe?

Hagler -v- Leonard?

Benn -v- Eubank?

Europe -v- USA - Ryder cup - quite intense and appears to be getting more so with increasing amount of bad sportsmanship from the USA (fans and players alike!).

Oxford -v- Cambridge Boat Race?

Must be some great motor racing rivalries aswell!

Canada vs U.S.S.R in ice hockey used to be a brutal rivalry.

I know there have been instances of Muslims of various other countries refusing to compete against Israeli athletes. I'm not sure if there have been any boycotts in the other direction.

Stuff like this is really sad. Rivalries can be good, but it gets really stupid when people drag international politics into the sporting arena (and my own country, the USA, has been guilty of this in the past, as in 1980 when they boycotted the Summer Olympics in the USSR). Sports is supposed to be something that brings people together instead of driving them apart.

What does being from Melbourne have to do with you thinking rugby sucks? Hell, my Melbournian flatmate who plays AFL thinks rugby's just as good as AFL.

Just because you lot are AFL-mad doesn't mean you can't like other sports. In fact, just about every Melbournian I've ever met has loved almost every sport you throw in their direction and are generally the most enthusiastic people towards sport that I know.

i'm from Newcastle (australia) so i'm a bit of a league fan. Newcastle - Parramatta has always been pretty competitive and in terms of genral australian sport i'd say Australia VS The Kiwis is always fun to watch. Too bad their brain capacity doesn't allow for anything other then rubgy to sink in though otherwise it could get even better.
