I'm working on a project that I'm not ready to disclose yet, but I want to get some info from the league.

What are some cross-league rivalries in the BBA today? I'm thinking teams that used to constantly be fighting for the division pre-realignment (LV-LBC for example?) that are now in different leagues.

Yellow Springs was just beginning a rivalry with Huntsville before they ran away from us like a dog with its tail between its legs by administrating us into a new division.

I don't think Madison has a cross league rivalry. When I try, I've tried to build Madison-Vancouver up just because of the 2000s decade when we seemed to meet constantly in the post-season but those days are long gone.

It always seemed like we had one with Carolina.

I'm post alignment. I'm not sure I have a true rival yet. Too new to the league and being competitive.

still trying to sort out who mine would be. Tough because we haven't been relevant in a generation.

The Sugar Kings' chief rival is New Orleans's AAA team. :)

they might have been better than us recently haha. That being said, that will only be a rivalry until I leave my "fan base" behind in a few years and come back to somewhere in the mainland.

I consider my rivals to be anyone who pays more attention to the league than I do.

So basically everyone. :grin:

Can't argue that. Edmonton will develop rivalries when they're actually tangibly affected by losing a game to somebody.

I'd say Halifax/Washington-Brooklyn-Louisville is a traditional 3-way JLA battle.

The biggest rivalry I've ever had in the BBA was with Huntsville when Stever was there. Must. Beat. Stever. We went back and forth for quite a few seasons before realignment and his departure.
