    Seriously ... I've been here a long time and our football forum is 2nd to none for great topics and serious and fun Patriots discussion.

    If the mods could let it stay for a few days.

    My guess is @ 35 years old.

    If it's anonymous then perhaps members won't mind voting please.

    I want to compare it to the average age of the Patriots beat Writers
    which I will find unless someone already has all their ages.

    Edit: Tough finding ages so anyone who knows any please chip in....thanks.

    I don't think it's Robin Williams. All occidentals look alike to me now, though.

    Just to be contrary, if you are 40, you could pick any of the answers up to 40. in other words, you are over 20, over 25, over 30, etc. Answers in the poll should be ranges.

    Well we all remember how the Democrats had problems with the polls in 2000 - I guess it's still a problem :D

    At 37, I'm over 20, 25, 30 and 35. But in the interest of poll integrity I'll stick with over 35. :)

    I have voted in two polls today and each time (after) I voted it brought me to an old thread but still had the poll at the top. Strange!

    I'm 27, I voted for over 25. Is that how this is suppost to go? Or are we expected to guess the forum age?

    Problem was if I put 20 , 25 , 30 ... people might pick over or under those numbers and it wouldn't be known. I think it's mathematically fair to then take those numbers and add 2 to each one and divide by 10. Except for 65+ which I'll use a mean of 70.

    Right now the average age is @32.4

    Still need to work on the beat writers. For the most part I feel our knowledge overall is close to theirs. They have more time to work on stories and of course they have access.

    But when it comes to evaluating games I think some of the analysis here is better than even the local media ... not always ... but some guys here get more right than the local and surly more than the national media.

    Not a slam on the writers BTW ... not at all.

    More a product of we have and have had great football discussion on this board since IAN started in the 1990's. With the media competition I feel the product at times suffers. A fan can get more concise knowledge here because we discuss the issues and then added to the articles/blogs each person can then come to their own better informed conclusion.

    So the @32 years old as of now makes sense in a maturity/knowledge way.

    Being over 65 means we have suffered more with
    the patriots than any one else.Thank god for memories .Today you
    can laugh about early years.I remember Ron Hall who is tied with
    most interceptions with Samuel. Hall at best was a avg DB.Wouldn`t make
    the starting team here. TOO SLOW

    I think Shonta was one of the most booed pats player when
    he played.

    Yeah ... I was born in 1959...so you did suffer more.
    I became a fan when I was 7 or 8 when I discovered how to move the rabbit ears.

    Ah these young fans will never know the pain of rabbit ears and rotary antenna's with ice on them.

    NEM, Yourself and others were smoking butts with no filter
    drinking Ginger Brandy in the cold weather for a team that sucked.

    How close am I.

    Yuh, I was at a Pats game in Fenway in the 60s where Chuck Freakin' Shonta let an INT bounce off his freakin' chest, and another offensive player caught it and ran 50 yards for a winning TD.
