You may have heard the story about the survey that Tottenham sent to its US club members today. It seemed like a normal enough survey, except it included this:

That’s...not great. So, like the intrepid reporter that I’ve never really been, I started doing some digging, and got my hands on the rest of their survey. I left out the question about a woman’s place, because that’s gross, but otherwise the survey as it was sent to Tottenham’s US supporters appears, verbatim, below:

1. How long have you been a Spurs fan?
a. All my life (go to question 10)
b. I won the PL with them as a FIFA save like 10 years ago, so sure, why not stick with them ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (go to question 2)
c. The entire Harry Kane era (go to question 2)

2. Where do you live?
a. London or surrounding area (go to question 10)
b. Elsewhere in Great Britain or mainland Europe (go to question 10)
c. The US, Canada, or Asia (go to question 3)

3. How public are you about being a Spurs fan?
a. I’m Spurs till I die - I wear the shirt to work and talk about the club to anyone who will listen

6a. How angry are you that Arsenal moved to a new home 105 years ago?

8. Are you willing to stay a Spurs fan, knowing that a few seasons of financial uncertainty await while Spurs pay off stadium debt?
