Hi,

 

I am Peter, a 3rd year student at Southampton Solent University, and I am doing my dissertation on 'Has commercialisation of the premier league been beneficial or had a detrimental effect on Saints fans?' I have constructed an easy questionnaire to complete. I hope to contact the club and improve Saints fans fandom and spectatorship upon completion of my project therefore your expertise and information are required.

 

 

If you could help me out it would be appreciated, as it is important to my dissertation. The link is Here

Thank you in advance if you take the time to do my survey, as your opinion is vital

 

Peter

 

If you have any queries contact me on 9allel05@solent.ac.uk

Think you might get more/better feedback face-to-face with 10 or 15 'interviews'?

 

I had a look at the questionnaire but I didn't complete it, sorry.

 

Lots of closed questions to which I had mainly open answers!

 

What are you studying out of interest?

 

Likewise. I felt the questions were too directional without giving me a chance to offer more feedback. If people don't object, you'd be better off pasting the questions in this thread and letting everyone answer within the thread and maybe offer a couple of new questions aimed at getting more qualitative feedback.

 

I was struggling to see what analysis you could garner over and above the quantitative "90% of fans felt matches were too expensive now compared to the 1970s" - you need some control measures as well, such as not only finding out their ages, but when they first experienced certain situations - I don't think I saw that?

 

But I genuinely think it'd help you more if you asked and got people to respond directly in this thread.

Pete,

 

I did my diss at Solent two years ago now. Survey monkey or similar is a good idea, they dont involve downloading, they record the answers provided and produce statistics of the results given, taking out some analysis work for you.

 

I downloaded the questionnaire, but theres no mention of how to send you the filled out paper, Ive filled it out and its sat on my desktop!

Unfortunately, the general public are on the whole;

 

1) Initially wary of studies asking them to be participants *****ill they have the requirements explained),

2) Unwilling to help; nothing in it for them.

3) Generally lazy to the research process. They expect to be asked to make the least amount of effort possible, otherwise they'l leave it. Therefore, you need to make your questionnaire as easy for the respondants to complete.

 

As a pointer, people are wary of downloading things onto their computers these days due to viruses etc, so an online questionnaire appears safer. More over, it's an effort for them to email it back to you (providing they have half a brain, and that half has the initiative to realise you put your email address in your original post.

 

 

I've been through it (twice), so know what i'm talking about!

:toppa:

 

Very well put. I did take the time to complete and return it but I voiced similar concerns in my covering e-mail.
