Default POLL: are you more "indifferent" to 2011 denver bronco football?

simple yes or no, are you more indifferent to the general state of affairs of the 2011 denver broncos compared to previous years?

that deep inner "care" about the team, the anticipation of sunday mornings and the game will be on soon etc. have you lost some of that with how things are and predictably will be going for the season?

Not completely, I still will watch every game, but more so than any year in my memory so my answer would be...

Yes

Did the poll question just change?

I'm definitely a bit more apathetic that I was in years past, not because I care for the team ANY less... but because I know what this year is. This isn't about winning a championship, it's about putting the pieces in place to contend in 2 or 3 years.

I watch every game. I however, no longer get super nervous before kickoff, nor am I upset when bad things happen. Its a little baby apathy...but the longer the Broncos are what they are currently, the bigger that ****ing apathy will get.

So I voted no. I am not as interested in the 2011 Broncos as I have been in past incarnations.

Of course if I had an exciting reason (beyond the awesomeness that is Eric Decker's rear parts) my answer would be different.

nothing epic about it, its just a general consensus of how extreme denver bronco fans generally feel about the team. personally, i no longer prioritize my sundays around bronco games, if im home i will absolutely watch it and be on OM chat etc, but i wont drop whatever else im doing to make sure i catch the first half. if they lose i dont really have a "down" and if they win im glad they stole one where they could.

I went with no. I'm not any more indifferent to Bronco football. I AM more indifferent to the outcome of the games though. Then again, I think that but the losses still infuriate me. I think it's changed the way I take the losses? Before it'd be like a punch in the stomach and I'd be sick, but now I just get angry because of what lead to the current state of the team.

Probably doesn't make any sense, but that's the truth for me, at least.

I voted no but, its been several years of indifferent for me. Esp on offense like the players but, none are exciting or gamechangers in our favor really boring.

This will be the first Year in quite some time that I won't be attending a Game-I used to look so forward to each Year, and my Family knows how rabid I can be about it. Not so, this Year-it reminds me of the '80's-

I hope this Team gets it together in the next few Years-I miss it already, but I was there last Year at the Raider's Game, and that truly po'd me-until we field a true, reasonably consistent Team, I just can't bring myself to get excited (or spend my money)-

Lets see here...

POLL: are you more "indifferent" to 2011 denver bronco football? --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

simple yes or no, are you apathetic to the 2011 broncos, especially in comparison to atleast the last 5 years of bronco football?
Then you read the poll question and it is different then these two questions.

POLL:" do you have as MUCH interest in the broncos as you did in 2010 or prior?"

Oh Boy! Only Tsiguy can give us that.

I think the poll will be flawed. I put yes as i still will go to a bar and watch my team and come here just like I have for many years.

Oh yes...that last paragraph.

I kind of like not having the nervousness before a game. Only because I too know what the season is and it lessens the anger afterward. It is what it is. But I do enjoy watching for some progress and I'm seeing some in that area. Maybe having gone through this bad before I know there is no where but up...and these are the Broncos. They will be good again.

I think I would care more if I believed that certain vets on offense give the team the best chance to win.

I dont believe it, so I have a hard time churning up optimism for what we have seen the last 24 games. I am more surprised when they do well at this point, to be honest. Especially on offense.

I'll watch every game and read the articles and parse the details. But my optimism is at an all-time low (been a fan since '86, so I know I've been spoiled, finding the team at the front end of Elway's run).

still remember that Giants SB and the stupid Phil McConkey catch off Bavaro...GAH!

So I voted, No I don't have as much interest. However upon rereading- The poll actually says am I more indifferent so that would be yes. However since you worded the title and the poll so that yes and no can mean either, I am guessing you win.

I'm still just as passionate about it. The people that were all excited through McDaniels, and now talk like this, don't make a bit of sense.

I was happy we lost to sd last year because we needed a top pick, w low rook cap and that sucks to say. Now I watch and am indifferent to wins and losses because we are years and a new interior line on both sides and qb from being legit.

It doesnt help that Dan Reeves is back coaching $ teve Deberg either.

My interest in the team is probably as high as it has ever been.

But at the same time my enthusiasm for the team is it all time low, I just don't get excited about the games like I used to.
