    I though that it would be interesting to do a little survey to see what kind of age demographics we have among posters.

    This poll will not be a public poll so no one, including the mods, will be able to see how you answered. Naturally if you want to post your age so everyone can see than that is fine too.

    Also, not to get into and war of the generations, I wonder if there are different expectations for the Patriots depending on your age.

    I've been a fan since 1970 and although I now expect them to win every game when the game is played, I can remember hoping to win or having no expectations of a win was normal. I only hoped for one SB victory during my lifetime.

    I think it's an interesting poll.....as it says a lot about what people have seen as Patriot fans...I really do think there is a different perspective by those older fans than with those way younger... many of whom have only basically seen the Patriots under Kraft's management. But I agree there is a large perspective differential.

    Your poll will also skew a bit based on the age groups most likely to frequent an internet message board.

    Three months later and I would have had to pick the 50-60 category :(

    My experiences pretty much mirror yours. Fan since late 60s and for most of my life, a single superbowl was all I asked for.

    Now I'm greedy and want more :cool:

    I'm young so I'm lucky. I came in with Bledsoe and Troy Brown. The 'lean' years for me were under Pete Carroll and Bobby Grier and hell those times weren't bad in comparison to some of the real lows that older fans have gone through.

    That's so my mother's POV.

    I'm 59 and saw them play at fenway Park and B.U..................I can't express how the Patriots reign,over the last decade,has improved my life.When fans from other cities say"Why can't we be like the Patriots?"..............It just makes me feel so proud.

    I'm 23. I don't expect the Pats to win every game. While I enjoyed 07, I think it's more fun to be the underdog and that's one of the reasons I became a Pats fan as a kid (plus my dad's side is from RI).

    Thank you for not including 70 plus in your poll. Some forum

    members would accuse me of being senile because of remarks

    I have made in this forum.

    I turn 50 in November. Didn't vote in the poll because I didn't know if I belonged in the "40-50" or the "50-60" age group. :D

    Been a Pats fan since the 1970s.

    29 years old here. Let's fact it, ever since Kraft bought this team, the organization has changed, and I think it is the type of change wherein the Patriots will be fielding generally competitive teams for a very long time...even after Brady-Belichick.

    Or if he did 20-29, 30-30, 40-49. That way my aged body of 42 years wouldn't be group in the "-50" group :D

    - edit, I see I could have picked 30-40 or 40-50 but picked the latter :bricks:

    Just turned 40 this year, so it was a little painful to click the "40 - 50" bracket.

    But I feel young! And I love fantasy football! And I'm totally up to date on this internet thingy! And... oh God. I'm in the 40-50 bracket.

    53 years old. Been a fan since they drafted Plunkett. I've been through a lot of lean years. Living in California since 81. For years I would tell people that I was a Patriot fan and they would just look at me questioningly and ask "Why?" All I ever wanted was a team that would contend every year. I have really enjoyed the run that the Patriots have had the last decade or so. Going through the bad years really gives me an appreciation of what Kraft and BB has done with this team.

    Thank you for the information. Yes, I am well aware of that even before you enlightened me. And this poll could very well be useless, or not.:cool:

    We tend to forget that there are kids in the forum (the well under 20 forum). Probably wise not to include them as a separate category in the poll, but they are here and reading and learning from us old "wise" folk.

    Yeah, I know I have learnt more from other users than I would have reading books and watching dvds. On here the history is far more personal.

    well, statistically the poll is technically "useless" by definition since the responders are self-selected and anyone can say that they are any age they want to say they are (personally, I just turned 23--hint, check out my nick :D ).

    but I think it's kind of interesting nonetheless, especially if you get a few hundred semi-honest responses from regular posters.

    But, your question does allow someone who is "30" to align themselves either with the 20--30 or 30--40 crowds, similarly for folks who are 40 and 50. The data could wash, but it's more likely that you're a tad overstating the 20--30's and 30--40's as a result.
