Okay guys, you beat me to the NFL schedule! :lol:

It is time to vote for the teams & dates you are willing and able to attend. Vote for as many as you like! :D

Like I said before, I am willing to attend any game selected! :D

Also, please post the teams/dates you selected because I want to keep track of who wants to attend which games. Thanks! :D

Let's get this party started............ :D

I doubt that MNF game will get to many votes because a lot of people that don't live in Miami would miss two days of work. It is going to be a weird weekend at finheaven during the tailgate party, I will be posting to myself. :lol:

I'm voting for all eight, but in order of priority: Yets, Fay-duhs, Patsies, Jills, Ravens, Chargers, Bears, Lions.

I will be going to all 8 ( season ticket holder).
So, whatever you guys decide, count me in.

Looking at the schedule, the game that works best for me is the Fay-duhs game. It should fall right at the beginning of winter break so I can probably get down there without any problems whatsoever. Of course the game I want to go to most is the Jets game so we can see them broil to death from the sun. ;) Since I live in Chicago I would like to see the Bears game (and see all the new bandwagon fans here cry their eyes out when they get their asses kicked), but that one is least likely from what I hear. So what is the official order? From most wanted to least: Jets, Fay-duhs, Bears.

03-30-2002, 10:37 AM
You mean no one wants to go see the Lions week one? :lol: They have 2 votes.

I would like to go to the Raiders game. That would work the best for me anyways. Seeing how next season I'll be in Tampa, it would be KILLER for me to go down to a Monday Night Game.

Basically, any Sunday game would be fine with me.

I really wouldn't mind going to any of the games but if I had to choose:


NY Pets
New England Patriots
Buffaload Jills
Baltimore Wavens
Deadland Gayders
Da Bears

I think that's how you spell them...... :cool:

But I fancy the Jets streak breaker first and foremost.

Does anyone think it might be viable to meet up with the Jets fans on the Saturday down on Key Biscayne beach for a fans "touch" or "flag" scrimmage, beer and bar-b-q??

Could be a good "jest":lol:

(After that my backup plan is Baltimore/San Diego to get two games in 10 days holiday)

I had in mind some good natured fun, not trying to reduce the number of Jest fans who are actually physically capable of attending the match!!:evil:

Key Biscayne has a great beach with picnic area, bar-b-q's already there to be used. We just need the beer and raw meat:D

I have to say I have never played the game, but I have always been athletic (represented my school in soccer, rugby, cricket - it's like baseball but with more obvious padding, swimming, athletics).
I'm up for it.

I changed my backup schedule to the Bears and Faders games in early December as I can do that in a single week off and the flights should be cheap at that time of year.:D

tickets go on sale here pretty soon!:(

GazPhin
04-10-2002, 10:17 AM
...until early August. Single game tickets being available (I thought) from late July. As it goes, I could take 2 tickets on the basis that you can sell them on to refund me if I have to take plan B (fully or partially). How does that sound?
:goof:

miadphan13
04-10-2002, 12:15 PM
I will be honest and say that I can not financially cover the tickets because I am getting ready to move into a new apartment in the next week. The Dolphins have screwed us by bumping the ticket sale date this early. We can still do the tailgate party thing, but I have no idea if we will be able to all sit together at the game. I can NOT afford to buy any tickets when they go on sale this month because my living situation is more important.

But although it's a nice idea to get us all sat together it's not very practical. No sweat. I'd rather leave my decision 'til later anyway. I'm dependent on others for my holiday plans.

Miamian
04-10-2002, 10:40 PM
13

what section are we looking to sit in? That would have a significant bearing on the cost. When you need me to pay you for the ticket, let me know how much, to whom to make the check out to, and where to send it.

It would be nice for us all to sit together.

I have no idea if I'll be able to attend a single game now. My new job requires me to be very flexible, but they don't return the favor. I have ZERO say in my schedule, holidays included. They really could give a crap about my needs.

It sucks. But at this point in time, I gotta do what I gotta do. We'll see what happens. Really hope to see the Jets or Raiders. Hell, I hope to see football PERIOD this year. God, now I'm getting nervous. :confused: :confused:

Maybe I'm being too dramatic, though it does suck.

The fact is I knew what I was getting into when I signed on. The fact is that I really have to do this. Pay is good (for me at this point). And it will look good on my resume once I graduate this fall.

In other words, I'm "getting my foot in the industry's door". So I've gotta make some sacrifices, no matter how painful. (I say that now, but when the season roles around........... :D )

I was kind of wondering also, thanks for being the one to break the ice 06. I thought 13 was going to handle it (this kind of sounds like Logan's Run, doesn't it? and most of us are over 30); but maybe she's busy. But there seems to be some confusion on when tickets will be available. I'm going to call tomorrow and ask and then post.:)

Just found out that individual tickets are not yet on sale, unless you go with the "kickoff package" which gives you two games one of which must be Detroit.

I'm willing to buy the entire season package if anyone else is willing to go in on it.

Maybe you should consider moving to south Florida. It can be hot as hell in the summer:fire: but winter is really nice.

04-27-2002, 06:39 PM

04-27-2002, 07:04 PM
Humidity is a problem. Believe it or not, south Florida's summer is mild compared to the rest of the state.

miadphan13
04-27-2002, 08:13 PM
It is true, I am very busy, but I also offered to help those needing travel help and like TWO people wrote me, so it doesn't seem that too many are interested in going. I can't afford tickets at this time because I am furnishing my new apartment and carrying the entire rent this month by myself. If the Dolphins would have sold tickets when they normally do, then I had it all figured out. I will go and party, but I may not be able to sit with all of you guys. :(

iceblizzard69
04-27-2002, 10:12 PM
I play sports in the summer humidity in New York, which can get really hot and is always really humid. I like it when it is 90-95 degrees. :)

Miamian
04-28-2002, 12:13 AM
Well as many as can go should. By the way, I've placed another thread on this parent thread for Floridians who may want to get in on season tickets and go together. I don't mean to be prejudiced against out-of-staters (Floridians in-fight probably more than anyone else anyway), but like 06 said it's probably impractical for others, but practical for people who live in or within a day's driving distance to south Florida.

miadphan13

FYI, to all subscribers to this thread: 13 won't be able to organize, so I've volunteered. If you want to go in on group tickets, send me an e-mail for the games you want to attend. I'll put together a list and then e-mail everyone with my address. Then you can send me a check and I'll purchase en masse. For the Jets and Raiders games, please do so as soon as possible (within the next week or two) as those tickets are going to go fast and we may not have the chance to pull a large group together if we wait too long.

Actually, I just realized that we may not be able to have a tailgate party unless someone is willing to collect money and buy the burgers/hot dogs/beer etc. I can't because I don't have a car.

What's the consensus?

Hey guys,

I am coming with Dolfan984, ChicagoDolphan & JayDog57. I can give you my cell phone number and we can meet up. :) I will meet up with FFiB also. He is major cool. :D We are in Section 424 Row 26. I am only able to stay for the game and have to be back in Orlando Sunday night. Dolfan984 & ChicagoDolphan may stay down in Miami.

We're in sec 447, almost shouting range. BTW, Dfan4life won't be joining us, he sold his tickets to sit in another section.
