One of the most captivating aspects of sports is the rivalries. There's nothing more exciting than seeing two divisional rivals duking it out for supremacy and bragging rights. That's especially true for the NFL feud between the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears.

The two cities have had a football rivalry that dates back nearly 100 years ago to when the Packers and Chicago Staleys first duked it out on November 27, 1921. Since then, the feud continues to grow more and more over each passing season.

Despite being the offseason, Packers safety Darnell Savage Jr. wasted no time in reigniting the rivalry's flames over Twitter on Thursday. The third-year pro simply tweeted out "Bears fans <<," which implies that fans of the Packers' rivals are less than, well, anything.

Savage's savage tweet came out of nowhere, considering he wasn't replying to or quoting anything that had to do with Packers and Bears fans. If anything, it seemed like he was trying to rile up the Chicago fanbase. After taking a quick look through some of the replies on Savage's tweet, it looks like the safety's trolling attempt worked in spades.

The fact of the matter is that Savage has every right to take shots at the Bears and their fans. The Packers have been absolutely dominating their rivals over the last decade or so. Since the 2010 NFL season, Green Bay is 18-4-0 against Chicago, which makes evidently how one-sided this feud truly is.

Even oddsmakers know who the better team is, as the Packers currently have the 8th-best odds to win the Super Bowl at +1700, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Meanwhile, the Bears' +4800 odds rank them at No. 21.

Needless to say, it's a bit more than obvious that Chicago has a long way to go before evening out its rivalry with Green Bay.
