Bart Scott of the New York Jets apparently hopped on "The Michael Kay Show" in New York on Monday to discuss the nature of the rivalry between the Jets and the New England Patriots. Along the way, he somehow began talking about why the rivalry between his former team (the Baltimore Ravens) and the Washington Redskins was actually a rivalry.

When you are in a small place like Baltimore and the temperature is relatively cold – hey you compete over the same chicks. That’s a football players favorite spot. Especially young football players. It was always a rivalry. Guys fight about hey that is my girlfriend and that’s my girlfriend
Fans argue about which games are actually rivalry games for hours, using subjective measures like "who wins more" and trying to gauge whether the players truly hate each other. Little did we know that the best way to measure a rivalry has nothing to do with any of those things.
