Dolphins wide receiver Clyde Gates has started a BIM campaign through his twitter account (@EdmondGates). The BIM trademark means “Believe In Miami” and “Believe In Me” as the Dolphins second-year wide receiver/kick returner uses the slogans to raise team morale and unity.

He can go a long way into instilling belief into the fans. If he can turn into a legitimate deep threat this year, he could really help our fortunes.

No. It's a little sad that in today's world, every little thing people do is under a microscope like this. Like how Jabar Gaffney's tweets about his Ex-Wife could cost him his job. Why cant people let these people live their lives. Just like the magazines with the candid shots of celebrities. Why do people care about who Jennifer Lopez is dating, or where she is eating dinner? These people are normal people.

True - "normal" people don't face the same scrutiny, but then again they don't draw the same paychecks either.

Ummm.. Because they are public figures who are sharing these things publicly...

Why the heck was Gaffney tweeting about his wife? That was a private matter. The second he tweets about it, to the WORLD, its a public matter, and fair game.

Dude, that is not a peace sign. In the pic, he is using his middle finger and ring finger, and folding his pinky into a specific position as well as folding his thumb in a specific way. A peace sign uses the middle finger and other finger, never the ring finger.

I don't know anything about Gates, and he seemed like a nice guy in interviews, but I do know he had a rough background, including gangs. I just hope he isn't getting back mixed up in that.

Running my mouth? Im pointing out that those are NOT gang signs. They are hand gestures that are common to see in today's youth in pictures. I live in a rural neighborhood, a far cry from any ghetto, so it's not like anyone is trying to be a ganster either. I graduated school, I have a full time job, don't smoke or do drugs. But please, continue to make me sound like an Eminem-Gangster-Wannabe that's going to end up in jail

Did you guys know he had a torn goin last year..I didn't know that..


“I’m finally healthy. I played all of last season with a torn groin. I fought through it, but now I’m ready,” said Gates, who caught 66 passes for 1,182 yards and scored 13 touchdowns in his senior season at Abilene Christian, a Division II school which also produced Bengals tailback Bernard Scott and Bears receiver Johnny Knox. “I hope I get all of South Florida moving with me.”

I don't know if you are referencing me or what, but I am the furthest thing from a racist that you will ever find. I come from a mixed race background and I have always identified with the black community, partly because of the struggles they have faced and continue to face in this country and abroad.

I did not mean to derail this thread, but when I was looking through his pictures, those images struck me. Those hand signals aren't common and look legitimately like gang signals that I have seen in the past. It was a legitimate question, and not an attempt to put anyone down for the way they look or dress. I know that Gates had a rough history which I believe included gang affiliations. As such, I was concerned that he might be getting himself back into that crowd. For a high profile person with millions of dollars, getting back with that crowd is a recipe for disaster.

The whole Gaffney thing, if he wanted privacy he should have left it off twitter. As for the "gang signs" he is from Vernon, Texas. That would be my guess of what it means, but that's just my shot in the dark.

Gangs have slowly become a joke to alot of younger people who weren't brought up in the high times of it all . . . but they certainly still exist. I went out to South Central LA about a year and a half ago and my homeboy who relocated to Florida who is from there took me into the heart of it all. It is no joke. So much tension. Young fathers with little kids paranoid at every car that rolls by. Bloods and Crips. I was in the J's (Bloods) and I was off of 60 crip. It's no joke.

That being said, there are a million and one different ways to move your hand to signify something and with that many possibilities they all mean something. In Fort Lauderdale we throw "L's" up, I'm sure there is a gang out there who probably uses that as there trademark. You just can't assume the guy is in a gang because of what he wears, how he and the people he is around are dressed/look and what they are doing with there hands. It is so easy to assume . . . but that could easily be me and some of my coworkers/friends on the way to a party . . . . and none of us are in a gang and none of us have any kind of record.

Not to be naive, because I'm sure, based on Clyde's background that he has some friends that tote guns and do drugs . . . yada, yada . . . that's life . . . I do as well, he doesn't have to unassociate himself with those friends he just has to be smart about things . . . and by his whole intention of this BIM campaign . . . I'd say he's a bit smarter than many of the people on this thread are giving him credit for. Certainly better than hearing his name in something tragic.

Then again he's not feeding the ego of those who wanna "cut" every player not meeting their expectations . . . so the guy can't win either way.

Good post. Gates, from the interviews I have seen, seems like a nice enough guy.

However, I do think guys in his position should disassociate from people in his social group who are still affiliated with gangs and that lifestyle. We have seen it take other guys down before, including guys like Vick, even though that wasn't gang-related, the people in his crowd pushed him in a direction to lead an illegal lifestyle.

I bet the back-up longsnapper believes in Miami too. I've seldom seen less impact come from such a fast man in the NFL. Gates was a project, but he obviously had no clue about beating a cornerback or settling down in a zone. Pretty pathetic how useless he was last year. It's amazing what skills we take for granted and when those skills are absent, they completely negate the overall value of a player. Getting off the jam and executing routes are definitely underrated skills compared to 40 times. Gates should've been drafted in the 5th round, even with all that speed, as he sucks at football. I'm mad because I was really high on him too and I feel snake-bit.

Getting off the jam and executing routes are definitely underrated skills compared to 40 times. Gates should've been drafted in the 5th round, even with all that speed, as he sucks at football. I'm mad because I was really high on him too and I feel snake-bit.

Yeah it sucks. it's not even hard to learn how to run routes and practice on your catching ability......the guy has the hardest part down... the genetic god given speed...

They are dressed like thug criminals, throwing up gang signs.

If I dress up like a police officer, should I get mad when people think I'm a police officer? stereotyping, just cause I'm dressed this way doesn't mean I'm a cop!

i mentioned gang signs too. he's throwing them up. that combined with the dress code gives the appearance of young thug criminals. grown men don't dress that way or throw up gang signs.

it's a fact of life - how you dress is part of how you present yourself to the world.

LOL the ignorance of some people... gang signs huh??? what gang is he representing since you know that these are gang signs???? Grown men? ok so grown men can only dress the way you think is acceptable?
there are cultural differences in this world. people are allowed to dress whatever way the want. there is no right or wrong way that a grown man can dress thats the beauty of style, its all different and people can dress whatever way they want. To each there own. its their style! now please stop judging them for it! your almost as ignorant as geraldo rivera calling hoodies gangster.

It's called style and environment. just like he doesn't wear his football helmet on his head at the club he's entitled to wear sneakers and a shirt out in public.

The root cause is insecurity. If you are some how scared of a Clyde gates and his image or dress code you need to man up!

Come on bro, I know you aren't this ignorant. You think a polo shirt with an alligator and some above the knee khaki shorts would make him a different person?

Clyde Gates certainly didn't grow up with a silver spoon, and just because he was able to overcome some of the obstacles in life that you have probably never even dreamed of hurdling over and make a 6 figure yearly salary . . . doesn't mean he should change the way he has lived his life to appease the ones who view him differently.

I guess you think he looks like a criminal . . . "it's a fact of life" that the biggest crooks in this world probably wear a suit and a tie. Just because all of them aren't exposed on a daily basis doesn't mean the average American is that naive to believe they are all good people. If you are that shallow to believe a dress code makes the man then I invite you to live life in the "real world" or invite me to visit your fantasy land so I can see what you see.

No offense Kdawg954, but you kind of loose your arguement when you say "its a fact" and "probably" in the same sentence.

I believe he was using "fact of life" facetiously (in response to the way it was used by another user). But his argument still holds true. The Madoffs of the world have inflicted much more harm than your run-of-the-mill thief...

No offense, but it is similar to how you lose your argument by saying "loose"
