The difference being of course that the Leeds - Hunslet Championship final actually took place within the city of Leeds - which for me defines a real derby.

But your definition is wrong. rolleyes.gif

Hull FC v Hull KR.

It's only because Knowsley Road holds more people that the swing-o-meter points to them.

What does constitute a derby in sport? Hull v Hull KR is certainly a derby. As is Leeds v Hunslet. But does Saints/Wigan really count as a derby? Or Leeds/Bradford for that matter?
What about Bradford/Keighley?
I've cited Cas/Fev. The grounds are probably only 3 miles apart and they are both in Wakefield met - but Cas is a town and so is Fev. And what about Wakey? What about Batley, Dewsbury and Huddersfield - all in Kirklees MDC? Swinton and Salford would surely count wouldn't they?
Obviously in soccer Wednesday/United is a derby. Presumably Villa v City, but what about West Brom? Arsenal/Spurs? what about the other London sides? And Man City and Man U are actually in different towns, although they're both called Manchester. Liverpool/Everton is certainly a derby - you can see one ground from the other. So what do we in RL call a derby? And has there ever been a definitive definition of one?

Oh FFS how many times do people have to post the dictionary definition.

"local derby a sporting event between teams from the same area"

Note the word area, not city, not town, not village, not country, not continent, not planet but area.

How big's "an area"? Any distance covers "an area". I want more specifics than "an area".

I think it's touching boundaries, or only divided by water ie you can have countries that have derby games

It's not a derby, it's traditionally an important game between two top teams who happen to be in close proximity to each other geographically

ie Man Utd v Liverpool

A derby would be Man Utd v Man City

It is sometimes refered to as a derby. Man U v Arsenal never is.

You are the one being silly by pretending you don't know what the same area means, if you are not being silly then you are indeed showing symptoms of numptiness. tongue.gif
