i wouldnt consider usa/iran a rivalry
Chivas-America, unless I'm badly mistaken. I'm sure "government team" and "people's team"/"regional team" rivalries get played out almost everywhere.
Germany-Holland...no, wait, I guess they've never had any political differences, my mistake.
Israel V Any other team in the middle east.
Chicago vs. Columbus.
My Dad died in the Sans-A-Belt Riots of '87 and I've never forgiven the people of Central Ohio.
They stole our water and then fled the state.
Bayern Munich-1860 Munich
is that allowed?
Nope, Nothing to do with the government's team although most new fans to the MFL think so.. It actually had to do with geography and class structure.
Most new fans think of America as the government team (because of Televisa) and Chivas as the peoples team.. That rivalry started way before Televisa acquired America....but what they fail to realize is that the upper class (America) from Mexico City, did not want a heavily involved government. As a matter of fact, it was the laborer and the poor class (Chivas) that wanted a government that had more control of national affiars. Even til this day, people like to talk bad about people from Mexico City (known as chilangos). Thats is why you will see Chivas Fans, Monterrey Fans, Pachuca fans, Tigres fans all root against America... because they thought that the money made off the sweat off thier backs were going to the capital.. where as the Chilango did nothing and leached off of them and had all the modern commodities
