    I think the biggest difference is Negan often kills people for sport and to show his power/control.

    Rick will shoot you in the head and sleep like a baby, but he doesn’t bash heads in with barb wired bats and receive genuine pleasure out of it.

    Negan has definitely shown he's willing to save people, but I don't think it's to make them better but more because he sees he can use people. Eugene, Sasha, now Father Gabriel have all been put into situations where Negan has captured them and none of them died by Negan's hand

    Rick on the other hand has specifically and inopportunistically killed people when he didn't need to. The biggest example of this is probably Pete. Yeah, we all agree Pete was a fucking scumbag and he did just kill Reg before Rick shot him in the face piece, but Negan would have just burned his face with an iron and then they'd still have a SURGEON, and other people may have survived had Pete still been there.
    The problem with this is that when you leave people alive like that you give them chances to turn it around on you. Imagine if Rick let pete live, burned his face and got his family killed..pete wouldnt want rick to live anynore. Look at dwight and negan, negan kept him alive and now diwght is working against him without negan knowing. You have to kill people to make sure you are safe. Negans problem is that he has to many people and cant see that Dwight is going against him. He assumes his liutenants are the most loyal when reality they are mostly snakes. Negan is not better than RICK. Rick didnt try and take over hilltop or the kingdom. He didnt try and take over oceanside and even agreed to bring their guns back after the fighting was over. He didnt kill the scavengers. The only people he is going after are the saviors, specifically Negan. Rick has made bad decisions his walking dead career but so has Negan. Leaving Rick alive will be the biggest mistake he has maken.

    As a leader, Rick has a bad track record of keeping his people alive. Just look at all the people who have died since the show started that were under his leadership at one time. Negan, however, not only keeps his people alive (and he has a LOT of people compared to the small groups Rick has led), but he keeps them regularly fed - at least he has up until this recent war. I'm not saying I like him or think his methods are moral, but, as a leader, he has kept a larger percentage of his people alive, and has kept them better settled and fed than Rick has. Of course, Negan's selectively murdered some of his own people in that process, too.

    Deciding not to murder someone is not the same thing as saving them. Negan does not save people. He exploits them and enslaves them for his own personal gain and deludes himself into thinking he's "saved" them by making them his servants.

    Rick has made bad decisions, but he doesn't enslave people or torture/murder his own people for his own gain and personal pleasure like Negan does.

    I would agree that Negan and Rick aren't that different. That they both aren't afraid to kill to survive in this world. Maybe if we watched Negan's group from the beginning then we'd hate Rick now.

    There's just this one little thing that does make them different. Rick and his people don't torture people for fun. Negan does. If Negan's men killed Rick's men in their sleep, Rick would revenge them too, but he'd shoot them or stab them. He wouldn't beat them to death with a baseball bat in front of their wives/girlfriends. He wouldn't threaten to cut off their kids' hands. Not unless he had no other choice. So yeah, the fact that Rick doesn't find pleasure in people's pain makes a huge difference.
