Was going to say, there will be plenty more optimists after that 40 minutes.

Naturally, I'm not ready to commit yet…

It's not a commitment ... it is a pulse .... it reflects how you/everybody is feeling right now.

If in 10 minutes time you feel differently ... change your vote ...

.. change your vote 10 times during a game if you are one of the game thread nutters ....

What I get from the data above is that optimists vote more quickly that pessimists. I think I know why:

Optimists are more positive about hitting the button
Optimists are more driven by fantasy (i.e like betting with you heart). I mean who in their right mind would have been optimistic after that sH&t last year
Pessimists would have already logged off the site after last years debacle. In fact I'd say they logged off after the Roosters game
Pessimists like a target to take down to drag everyone into their own misery vortex, so they would have been delighted by the high early numbers creating a delicious idealistic target to destroy
The numbers are now relatively stable because those with fixed opinions voted earlier to put forward their take (which is most of us). Many of those also won't change until they see on-field evidence justifying to change. The ones that voted later are the more flexible fence sitters that might move depending on their mood for the day, but they represent about 10% of voters so cant possibly swing the numbers much.

Finally, even if we went 27-0 during the season and won the comp 40-0 there will be about 8% of holdouts (same for the flip-side 0-27). They will consist of suspended members, court jesters, madthems, piss-takers, people who have their computer repossessed, and Ryan. C'mon identify yourselves!

My mate was jogging yesterday and a van pulled up next to him. He told me his first thought was that it was a van full of beautiful girls wanting to abduct him but to his disappointment it was an old mate. Now that's optimism!

Dear @globaleagle ... I was wondering if in your infinite talent and skill ... you were able to make a couple of changes to this thread to better reflect it's purpose ... as follows

1) Change the question to ... "How do you currently feel about our future under Seibs and Flanno?

2) Change the yes vote to "Optimistic"

3) Change the NO vote to "Pessimistic"

PSS .. please don't do it if it means losing the current voting numbers

Thank you.
