Default Ford vs. Chevy

I know a lot of car owners who have a violent, perhaps irrational dislike of certain car brands, you know, Calvin peeing on a logo, etc. Are we there there yet in disc golf?

I know there are brands I like better than others in DG, mostly for irrational reasons. However it seems to me there is hate on brands of the Ford-Chevy variety.

Thoughts?

Brand hate has existed in these forums for years now; certainly longer than I have been a member. It doesn't really have anything to do with the brands themselves.
Haters gonna hate.

Do we really need a thread to specifically give brand haters a chance to spew their drivel?

Im a Ford guy...no other reason than i loved my F150. I now drive a Ford Hybrid....because i got my F150 when gas was 5$ a gallon and it traumatized me lol.

That being said...i think we can all agree that we hate Dodge

In disc golf i dont hate any brand. I usually go against the grain and embrace the underground.
Humans are tribal at a dna level. As long as its in good fun, i entertain that part of me.
Example: I was invited to join a league when i moved to texas. I told myself the first league i join is the last league i join. Its good natured tribalism. I dont hate other leagues.

Ford
DGA/Discraft (for 15yrs now)
White Sox
Da Bears

And yes, there are DG brands I dislike enough to "hate". Two come to mind. Both mainstream, well known brands. The reasons for my disdain are more for business practices/ideals than the plastic they produce, but they are my reasons nonetheless.

Ps.....also hate Ford and Da Bears...... Packer fan here!

What i was getting at is i am not defined by these things and to have actual hate or anger toward these "things" is strange to me.

I would still be willing to be your best friend....would you be mine?



Life is too boring to hang with ppl that agree with you on everything.

I have my personal beliefs about things. But I really don't care about what choices others make. I refuse certain brands because I don't see eye to eye with them. However, couldn't care less about anyone elses choices though. I share your sentiment.


Except the Bears thing......yeesh thats a rough one......can't look past that....LOL
