Aside from Favre, there were never really guys on Green Bay's squads that I hated either. I guess I consider a true rivalry as something more than a function of time or whether or not the team in question is "relevant" at the moment. There is so much history between the Niners and Dallas, the fact that Dallas isn't a shoo-in for the playoffs annually makes no difference to me--I want to hammer them 38-28 every game.
Green Bay is very much relevant, very good, and I never took either of our victories over them for granted last season. I guess we have a different understanding of the word "rival." Seattle is an annoying team that has never knocked us out of the playoffs, while we were consistently Dallas' b***hes in the early Nineties.
...but I will give you that there are plenty of players to dislike on Seattle's squad...like their entire doped-up defense.
