    I'm in a Discord with a bunch of Dolphins fans that used to post on a Dolphins message board and another for a dynasty FF league. It's pretty smooth and I can see younger people moving more that way as opposed to standard forums. Especially for specific topics of interest.

    the implication these things were ever separate is very bad and silly

    just a bank shot argument to tie growth of secularism to political polarization when the 60s-90s lack of polarization is basically world wide unique

    In my anecdotal experience the NFL is just as popular or more than the NBA even among teenagers.

    NFL just dominates the culture somehow and doesn't show any signs of slowing down.
    only going to become more common imo, partly due to fantasy, partly due to teams being dickheads to their players 99% of the time

    I've noticed it in myself in sports where I didn't grow up rooting for a particular team. I'm a casual NBA fan and just root for whatever teams LeBron, Ayton, or Hield are on. Been kinda conflicted this Lakers/Suns series.

    should have added to my first post that regional tribalism that breeds insane fandom has faded in the US as everyone, especially young people, has to move around a lot for work

    just a lot of factors pushing people to be sports nomads

    turning 35 this week, might switch my vote since the poll allows swing ages.

    Im on a few discords and they;'re so bad. I dont get it. I get they have utility as a gaming chat room, but IM on a few that are used as message boards and they;re so awful to keep up with. Basically unless you read stuff right away, it's impossible to keep up w anything.

    For me, there seems like a sweet spot between too few participants to where it's dead and too many where it's impossible to keep up w anything.

    Still the standard for college friend groups/study groups etc from what I'm told. First week on campus you get added to 10 Group Mes, unless you have a homogenous group that's all iPhone users

    I like Slack a bit more than Discord for talking with different groups of my IRL friends, but that's just personal preference. I prefer it to having a big group text by far. My work uses Teams since we're all docked in with everything Microsoft and it is so much worse than Slack.

    Every American generation likes soccer more than the last in my anecdotal experience.

    idk if my grandpas know/knew soccer is on TV in the United States. My dad knows the rules and will maybe watch for 60 seconds while flipping through. I grew up staying up all night watching world cups and playing fifa religiously, watching and betting on european soccer, and have been to a few MLS games. My nephew’s favorite sport is soccer and he watches clips on YouTube.
