Players Who Played w/ Both Sides of a Rivalry

Recommended Posts

How many players have played with or for bonus points, won it all with two teams that hate each other?

 

A few recents off the top of my head:

 

Johnny Damon- Won Champ w Sox and Yanks

Shaq- Lakers and Celtics, and Heat and Magic for that matter

Joe Morrow :P- B's and Habs, Rare for a player to go from Boston to Montreal in B2B years

Brandon Browner- Played in SB w/ Seahawks in 2013 then faced them w/ the Pats in 2014 (not really a rivalry but everyone hates the Patriots, so.)

 

That's of course just a few, any other notables?

Sergei Gonchar, Eric Fehr, Brooks Orpik, Matt Niskanen, and Jaromir Jagr are some of the ones I can think of that have crossed the Caps-Pens divide. 

 

Michael Owen and Paul Ince are the only players I can think to play for both Liverpool and Manchester United.

Justin Boren played OL for Michigan and then transferred to Ohio State... he’s the only player I can remember who has played for both football programs.

You can also add 49ers and Dallas for Deion.
