You really can't get emotionally invested in football until your mid teens. When an ice cream cone takes away the sting of a playoff loss... well... yeah. That's why I hate it when people say 'I've been a fan since X' with X being the date they were born. That said, it's nobodies fault when they were born so if you're mid-twenties or younger then you've known mostly good times. However, you can also appreciate why older fans tend to be more 'demanding' -- they know success is fleeting in the NFL and these last few years under Payton are as close to competing for multiple titles as this team will possibly be for the next few decades. You just never know.
