View Full Version : Possible TV Black Out On ABC in South Fl

12-06-2001, 10:36 AM
Can you belive this, here is a team who is in first place (not for long) and the game is not even close to being sold out !!!!

That goes to show you how loyal the fans are here in South Florida for their beloved Dolphins.

I'll be at the game, because I enjoy the AFC East , it's going to be a very interesting game.

oh yea and by the way Go Colts !!!!!!!!!!

idiot Jet Fans understand... Most people living in the Miami, Fort Lauderdale area are transplants from Northern states and from Cuba... Therefore they are not Dolphin Fans, hence they do not go to the games. Do you think you can get that through your thick skulls....

The Jets will be two games behind Miami by Tuesday Morning now that is funny......


12-06-2001, 11:06 AM
How many of your games do the people want to see..Now that's hilarious! :lol:

12-06-2001, 11:09 AM
This season

12-06-2001, 11:20 AM
You don't even have a HOME stadium..You play your games at the Giants home stadium :rolleyes: :lol:

dolfan 201,

what's does the cuban population got to do with them attending the game, I know alot of Dolfans' that are Cuban and Cuban americans who are SEASON TICKET HOLDERS and go to the games.... my point is that if you are a fan of the game and you have a chance to attend the game you go, case in point I love my JETS, KNICKS, AND METS and when they are in town I make it a point of going to the game... SO DON'T YOU CALL ME AND IDIOT

JETS JETS JETS JETS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

12-06-2001, 11:32 AM
But can't win the Division.... Beating the Dolphins does the Jets a lot of good...

Instead of being 5-11 they will be 7-9.....

I can see why you are so proud

12-06-2001, 11:55 AM
There you go counting the chickies before they are hatched...
I know that it gets under your skin that the FINS can't beat the JETS that's ok.

There is nothing wrong with that, If there is a football God beating you guys TWICE A YEAR, FOR THE LAST FOUR YEARS will someday pay dividends and hopefully it will be this year.

I'm getting used to this living here in South Florida,


HEY it feels like I never left the Bronx !!!!

have anything to do with going to the game, the weather does. i have been to florida in december and there are so many things to do. unless you have an indoor lake or pool, water sports are out of the question in NY in december. other than the game and seeing if yout spit freezes before it hits the ground, what have you got? :o

12-06-2001, 12:18 PM
Since I live in South Florida, I have a pool in my backyard, bbq and the whole nine yards. That does not stop me from going to the games (so that is weak argument).

When I lived in NYC I went to the games, and when it comes to things to do in NYC I went to Broadway, Times Square, Upstate,

So there are alot of things to do in NY as well..

The economy is in a recession this year...People are losing their jobs and alot of people are not going out living their normal lives cause of Sept 11....Alot of people don't have alot of money right now and they aren't willing to spend too much of it..Ever think about that?

12-06-2001, 12:28 PM
Flying 11

You are correct, I understand your point of view... there are alot of people who unfortunately lost their jobs.

And the Holidays are comming so the people rather use thier money for other things.

It's just a shame that a game of this magnitude might be blacked out in South Florida :(

I understand

12-06-2001, 12:29 PM
there are lots of things to do in NY, and getting mugged in NYC is right up near the top of the list.

most people in florida are not interested in sitting and watching a game or going to some show on broadway. most are healt nuts that like out door recreation, fishing, boating. and remember, there are an awful lot of retiree's from the north east in florida. they know where the best place to live is!


12-06-2001, 12:31 PM
Yeah..It does suck :(

12-06-2001, 12:37 PM
Being from California you sure know alot about NYC... its a shame
that You can say that.

You can get mugged any were, you just have to know and understand your surroundings.

I remember when I was in the Navy and I was overseas some kids came up to me and asked me for my money.

I just laughed and walked away. In response to your comment about knowing where the best place to live for those who are retired is correct, its surely not Cali....


12-06-2001, 12:38 PM
record, I can care less if we beat the Jets... Sure it would help us be the # 1 seed in the AFC and give us homefield advantavge throughout the playoffs. But I would be happy to loss to the Jets and win the Division every year. It is a bigger deal to the Jet fans then it is to the Dolphin fans. The only thing the Jets have to look forward to every season is beating the Dolphins, and then going on to a below .500 season.

That all maybe true, but most of the events that happen on 9-11 took place in NY. So why do the Jets/Giants keep selling out?

Why do you want to keep going on with this conversation.....Other teams out there are subject to blackouts..not just Miami


12-06-2001, 12:50 PM
If that was true, so why is that when I went to the game in Nov
I saw Dolfans so frustrated there were fighting themselves just ask Miadpfan13 my Dolphin Queen who was at the game as well.

On the radio WQAM 560 AM the flagship station for the Dolphins all week long prior to both games against the Jets the Dolfans clogged the lines obsessed and angry and trying to figure out why the Fish can't beat the Jets.

It's called a RIVALRY and don't tell me that you don't care about the Jets beating the Fins, because I can tell you, you must have been pretty ticked and scratching your head and saying get rid of Fiedler just like the fans were saying on the post game show after the game..

and this is my input for the RECORD !!!!!!!

12-06-2001, 12:53 PM
and having Direct TV, I could care less if the people in the Miami area that don't go to the game can watch it or not. Just like I could care less if the Jets fans sell out the Stadium or not. That's what's funny about Jet fans they brag that they sell out the stadium every game but at the game they turn on the team at the first sign of bad play. I heard Fireman Ed on the radio on Monday complaining that he could not get the fans to make noise he actually walk over to the other side of the stadium to yell at the fans.

I am a Jets Season ticket holder and I give my tickets away every week, except the Dolphins game.

12-06-2001, 12:55 PM
The Jets fans did the same thing on Jets Insider last week...they got on their boards during half time saying it was a great game, we are doing so good, Vinny is looking great and then after you lost you were calling for Vinny's head and saying to fire him and not let him play. So what makes that any different from what we did? It's called frustration and anger..you get over it and go on to the next game and keep winning...So what's your point?

12-06-2001, 12:58 PM
for myself. Not for the frustrated fans you saw at the game. Yes I would like if we beat the Jets because we would be 10-1 right now. What I said is, it's more important to me to win the division then beat the Jets. I will admitt it is frustrating the way most games we out play the Jets the whole game and then let them come back and beat us. The Jets had a 176 yards total offense the last game and beat us, that is frustrating...

No I wouldn't...Cause I don't keep track of stats like this...

12-06-2001, 02:34 PM
to a Co-worker/Bills Fan.... I only give the tickets to the visiting team fans. Unless I happen to not know someone who is a fan of the visiting team, then I give them to my nextdoor neighbor, a lousy Jet Fan....

12-06-2001, 02:52 PM
sure i know alot about NY, my bro-in-law was born there. my sister wants to move out of calif when they retire and my bro-in-law says, "NOT NY". thats enough for me.
btw, unless they close the southern border, i have property in arkansas and when i retire i'm getting out too. in fact its so bad here they call orange county, "Little Saigon." in fact, right here in riverside, there is a place they call "casa blanca", the police won't even go there without a swat team! wasn't like that when i first moved out here (riverside), and i was born in california in 46, what a cool place for kids to grow up, not anymore!:mad:

12-06-2001, 03:10 PM
You idiot. The Dolphins game isnt goin to be blacked out. Tickets are on sale up until game time & there are companies in every city that ALWAYS buy remaining tickets to make the game sold out.

12-06-2001, 03:24 PM
Can I ask a question here?

Who cares? Is this about the Jets having more or better fans? Is this about the Miami community being lazy? How again does this pertain to the Dolphins football team as being number 1?

Get over it, so you sell out your stadium, and we don't, big freakin deal.

If your going to come on here and discuss things, then talk football, not butts in seats.

12-06-2001, 03:31 PM
intellect! they are concerned about where your butt's at. they never want to "break your face", its always "i'm gonna bust your a$$". thats another reason NY is out of the question for me! :D :lol: :p

12-06-2001, 04:13 PM
I hear you, it's not like the good old days anymore, when with 1 cent you could buy a big piece of bazooka gum, and when you bit that gum it was hard. When a pack of baseball cards were a nickel each.

When a spaulding rubber ball was 15 cents and when we lost it we all had to chip in and buy another one.

:) Now you can tell how old I'am.

Your write it's not the same anymore..

Enjoy the Game Monday Nite, it's going to be a good one.

December has come LET THE GAMES BEGIN

Jets season tickets! What a waste of money!

Plus for me to try and buy the Jets/Dolphins tickets every year from outside sources it would cost me as much as it does for the season tickets directly...

12-06-2001, 07:00 PM
I got 5th row seats for the Dolphins/Jets game for 75 bucks a piece, thank god I didn't pay for them.:)
