You're way off base.

To say it's not a rivalry is just incorrect...

Re: NFC Wild Card Weekend: Minnesota Vikings (6) @ Green Bay Packers (3)

So what I'm gathering out of this is that Minnesota fans think this is some super-intense rivalry while Packers fans feel kind of meh about it because the Bears are our sworn enemies.

Weird. I think the Duke/Maryland comparison fits perfectly, actually.

So, what.. 5 Green Bay fans on this forum speaks for the entire fan base?

Yeah, not how it works.

I honestly think Packer fans like to say they are kinda "meh" on the rivalry, because they know it sticks in Vikings fan's craws

I just don't know how anyone can say this isn't a pretty intense rivalry. Viking-Packer games are 10x more intense than any other game on the schedule (from a Viking's standpoint), IMO.

I realize that Vikings-Packers isn't the top rivalry for many Packer fans, and that's fine. But it's definitely a great rivalry. All time record is like 53-50 Packers, so it's not like it isn't competitive...

54-49-1, and 1-0 in the playoffs with the Vikings having that only win.
