Interesting question

I have an interesting question and I am not sure if it is even
possible to accomplish but thought
would give you guys a look at it.

I have four objects here 2 Teams and 2 AthleteTeams associations

what I need to do is test to see if the team objects are = to the
associations

#<Team:0x007fcbe117cfa0>
#<Team:0x007fcbe117ca00>
#<AthleteTeam:0x007fcbe0ff44f8>
#<AthleteTeam:0x007fcbe0ff3d50>

here are the four objects
need to do something that says does AthleteTeam.include(team)

any help would be appreciated.

What do you mean by the Team being equal to the AthleteTeam? They are
different classes so cannot be equal. Do you mean that the team
belonging to the athleteteam is that team? If so then something like
if @athlete_team.team.id = @team.id
should do the trick.
