    I want to hear your definition of the word dynasty

    dy·nas·ty (dn-st)
    n. pl. dy·nas·ties
    1. A succession of rulers from the same family or line.
    2. A family or group that maintains power for several generations: a political dynasty controlling the state.

    I've heard a lot of talk about whether the Pats actually had one or not and whether it still exists or not. What does it mean to you?

    Dynasty is an American prime time television soap opera that aired on ABC from January 12, 1981 to May 11, 1989. It was created by Richard and Esther Shapiro and produced by Aaron Spelling, and revolved around the Carringtons, a wealthy oil family living in Denver, Colorado.[2] Starring John Forsythe and Linda Evans as oil magnate Blake Carrington and his new wife Krystle, Dynasty was ABC's derivation of the hit CBS prime time serial Dallas.[2]

    Re: I want to hear your definition of the word dynasty

    Hey Sam,
    I'd say for the Pats to be a true Dynasty they have to win another Superbowl this decade and it would be better for them if they won 2 or more. IMO a Dynasty has to span over decades. The forty niners did it as did the Raiders. I'm on the fence with the Cowboys and Steelers because there was a lot of time in between the Championships for both. I don't consider the Pats a dynasty yet. The Celtics, The Canadians and the Yankees are all good examples of Dynasties. I am looking forward to the Pats getting it done though. They have the right coach in place to do it.

    Domination for decades

    Dominate winner for long period of time. The Pats of the last decade are very close, if they had beaten the colts in the AFCCG and beat the Bears and also finished 19 and 0 by beating the Giants then that's a dynasty.

    true dynasties;  
    Celtics of 1960s
    Inlanders of early 80s
    yankmes of the late 90s

    according to your opinion no teams would, technically, have a dynasty. What the Pats have done in the salary cap era is far beyond extraordinary! They are a real dynasty they had to deal with a lot of parity through out the league over those years!

    Sure, I gave a list of what I thought were Dynasty teams.It's very hard to have a dynasty in a salary cap era. I think we have lowered our standards for Dynasties and we throw the word Dynasty around like the word great. It only my opinion but I won't call a team a Dynasty unless they can keep it going through a decade into the next and maintain dominance. Lots of teams are dominant for 4 or 5 year stretches. The teams I listed in my other post set the bar for Dynasty teams for me. The Patriots haven't lived up to what the Niners or the Raiders accomplished over a 10-15 year period. They are close, but not quite there.  I just need one more Superbowl Victory for that.

    A true dynasty is over a number of leaderships - at least more than one.  In this case the people in charge have not changed.  Same ownership, same coach, same.  I would guess that an argument could be made for the 49ers.

    "I've heard a lot of talk about whether the Pats actually had one or not and whether it still exists or not. What does it mean to you?"

    I used to think the word dynasty was grossly overused. I thought very few teams such as the UCLA Bruins, the Celtics of the sixties, the Yankees and the Canadiens were dynasties.

    After researching the definitions and opinions of what a sports dynasty is, I have to include the Patriots in the discussion. Three superbowls in four years in a salary cap league is simply amazing.

      I think the Patriots are a "sports" dynasty.  
    That is different then a royal dynasty.

    A sports dynasty was the successful defense of the America's Cup for 126 years in a row against all comers.  The Patriots' regular season record of 107-37 over 9 years, with real threats for continuing the trend, is highly respectable, but the record has holes in it and is still 117 years short.

    The NFL announced in 2001 that they had achieved parity.  Now that makes the Patriots' run quite impressive.

         A team that has been dominant, and has won multiple championships, for a 4-5 year period. Both the Patriots and Colts have been dominant teams. But, only the Patriots get the dynasty nod because of their 3 championships in 4 years.

    "Dynasty" was the name of the KISS album that contained their disco hit, "I Was Made for Lovin' You."

    I've never really forgiven them for that one.
