So jealous of people who live in Hamilton.

Do the Bulldogs have the same rivalries as the mother team? Bulldogs vs Marlies/Bruins?

If things keep going the way they are - the Bulldogs might be a lot closer to you soon!

As for rivalries - the Marlie one is a strange one because so many in this area are Leaf fans :huh: that often the crowd

is more supportive of the Marlies!!!! To a certain extent it hurts over all attendance because it is hard for Leaf fans to see the Bulldogs as a local team - not a problem for me though - I've been a Habs fan all my life - it was like winning the lottery when their farm team came here. True Bulldog fans HATE the Marlies - I always find them to be a dirty team! Marlie games usually have the biggest attendance.

As for other rivalries -although we play them rarely, Hershey Bears (and Houston) because we met them in the Calder Cup.

We rarely get the Bruins farm team here - only once or twice over the last few years.

Other big rivals are the:

Rochester Americans (especially when they were Buffalo property!) - they always seemed to have our number!

Grand Rapids Griffins - lots of Detroit fans here (and Hamilton used to have Detroit's farm team in the 60s)

Chicago Wolves - their fans often travel here!
