Let me know if I'm alone in this, but I don't really get brand loyalty to the point where a person feels a need to attack and besmirch other competing brands vocally and loudly or feel like they have to pick a side in some sort of all-out corporate warfare.
I love Utz salt & vinegar potato chips. Like...A LOT. They are the absolute best, and my life would be a much sadder existence without them. But never once has it ever occurred me to heap crap on Lays salt & vinegar or look down on people who prefer another brand. (Truth be told, there are some other damn good brands out there as well.)
Anyhow, here's the brand loyalty debates I find the most absurd. Some seem to go only one way, but a couple have sycophantic idiots on both sides.
Xbox vs PlayStation Star Wars vs Star Trek LEGO vs literally any other building toy Marvel vs DC Transformers vs GoBots
What about you guys, and is there anything you can think of that you're unreasonably fanatical about to the point where you've deemed it's economic competition as the devil?
The ones that have always made my eyes roll are the car industry ones (mostly Ford Vs Chevy but there's others), and beers, and Coke vs Pepsi, though as a lifelong gamer the console wars are on my list too.
I suppose since there is a ton of money involved you could always ad sports rivalries to that list too, in which case yeah, i can be a bit fanatic sometimes.
Hasbro vs Takara. Same products but people hold each on pedestals for different reasons (Though more seem to sing praises of Takara and that Hasblows and all that). Some reasons are legit, but Ive seen some fans get belligerent in their preference of one over another. One reason why the main line unification between the two is sad and funny at the same time.

Come a little further south, and you need to throw the Ravens and Redskins into that mix.
How about just sports teams overall. None of that shit makes any sense to me. It's like deliberately throwing in with an arbitrary tribe for no other reason than to start shit with other arbitrary tribes. We have enough fuckin tribes.
