I don’t think there is one, and I think that’s actually a sad indictment on our club’s ability to be hated.

Nobody hates us because we’re not a threat to anybody.

Is there a rivalry between Adelaide/Bulldogs, Adelaide/Geelong and/or Adelaide/Richmond?

Not particularly. It might come and go in cycles but not consistently.

The year after the GF there was a bit of extra hype around the Richmond games. But it died off pretty quickly, because it’s not organic.

The only organic rivalry is Port.

Secondary rivalry though after Port.

West Coast?
Western Bulldogs?
Sydney?

I dont really care tbh. If you have too many "rivals" your club lives for those games and loses focus elsewhere.

Sturt, Ozark Mountain Daredevils
Essendon for mine. I still haven't gotten over the 1993 prelim.
Yep 1993 sits in the craw, just behind the 1978 SANFL grand final with the dodgy Des Foster/Phil Gallagher blatant cheating incident

I'd prefer it to be West Coast, as I think we should be aspiring to be as successful as they are, and the biggest interstate club (though they'll take a lot of catching now with their massive membership). And 2005/6 prelims still burn!
