Re: Rivalry. Sakura -> Ino <=> Naruto -> Sasuke
Thank you for your opinion, nevertheless.

See, Naruto vs. Konohamaru isn't the rivalry both Ino and Sakura/ Sasuke and Naruto had. They are based on acknowledgement problems. This is where the common point weights. Naruto already accepted Konohamaru as his rival, indeed, however, he acknowledged him, thing that, in both parties, at the beginning, it wasn't the matter.
Now, regarding Naruto vs. Sasuke, remember that Naruto will kill Sasuke if it needs be. He said they're both going to die. So he won't be holding back.
As for the end, that's why I said it he won't be returning to Konoha. The circle of hatred will be broken as Sasuke will be forgiven, the others won't be looking for revenge on him. For reference, re-read the Pein Arc, as well as, The Kage summit arc when Naruto goes to talk to Raikage to ask for forgiveness for Sasuke, preaching him about the fact that if they will go after him, a new circle of hatred will be born and it will never end.
Also, the beginning of the circle breaking has been done by Gaara when he asked them "When did you last have forsaken yourselves?" as in, when did you let go of your egoes last time? Replace the ego with revenge, and you'll see where it leads.
Hope I got you to understand the message.
That is the base case. Of course, Sasuke's and Naruto's one is a bit more complicated as it is the typical shonen manga, like you said, with antagonism of friendship and rivalry.

We know he is a master of foreshadowing.
Proof? The most recent one... Neji's.
How he died impaled by spikes, same as back in Part 1.
No, it wasn't wrong. It seems you don't understand as a whole. Sakura's and Ino's rivalry was like an answer to how Naruto's battle with Sasuke will go.

I do not tolerate bashful language towards any of the characters. It seems you must have missed that last bolded part.
And how comes popularity is something unspoiled? Very insightful of you, indeed. If you consider popularity mature, then, what can I say, whatever floats your boat.
Of course Sasuke's with Naruto's rivalry got even deeper. They're the protagonists of the manga, this is what keeps continuing, however, the basis for both rivalries/friendships were the same. That's what makes the two cases different than the others.
And if it's lame, why did you exactly came into this thread? I don't go on lame threads and post in a bashful behavior, if I don't like it.
So, next time, you might want to reconsider your language, please. This is not one of those threads where you can talk however you want, such as in a disrespectful/bashing manner. I do not tolerate this. If you are willing to behave in such a way, there are a lot of other threads like the type you're looking for, thank you!
