There are usually the following rivalries in sports. There is the absolute hatred., where there is no love lost between the teams and their fans, they absolutely cannot stand one other. Think Yankees vs Red Sox, Celtics vs Lakers, or in collegiate circles there is Michigan-Ohio State.
There is also another, a more nuanced sort of rivalry. This one may be characterized by mutual respect. In these more civilized cases, the athletes go head to head for their sports' biggest titles, but after these games are played, they praise each other vigorously. Think Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal or LeBron James and Kevin Durant, and what about Peyton Manning and Tom Brady.
