ATTENTION FINHEAVEN MEMBERS:

We are very proud and excited to inform you that this season FinHeaven will be doing an Exclusive introduction interview & weekly journal with Miami Dolphins starting left tackle, DAMION McINTOSH. Never before has team fansite been able to provide its members with such direct access to a player. As many of you know, Damion's agent Brett Tessler has been a longtime friend of FinHeaven and together we were able to make this happen. This opportunity is just
another reason why FinHeaven is and continues to be the "Heaven" for Dolphin fans around the world. Enjoy.

Please keep your eyes open after Week One for Damion's first installment of his weekly journal!

Meanwhile, here's our introductory interview with Damion....

That's excellent A.J. congratulations... Ya know, finheavan could wind up getting itself cited as a source for a Dolphins quote in the national sports media, that's pretty cool.

AJ, seriously, you deserve to be able to retire from this heaven you've provided us all with. It must feel pretty cool knowing that this labor-of-love you have put together has become so popular... you've already had Dolphin segment sponsorship, Brett Tessler, professional sports agent doing his Q&A, and now, because of the rich, Dolphin-friendly, environment you've provided us with, the starting Left Tackle is going to do a weekly gig on the site... That kicks a$$ man, keep it up!

Thanks to you too Brett.

:woot: Great job!

Just a question too ... Will Damion just be providing a journal or will also there be some interaction with the members here on the site? In other words, will we be able to ask questions, give props, etc., or will Damion be chronicling his experience for us to enjoy?

If that interaction exists I would suggust having it being heavenly moderated.

Not saying that all fin fans are like that, it is just there is a minority of total jerks on this site that wouldn't care if they ruined it for everyone

EDITED: Really poor decision made with this post. You could have just posted like this (how I've edited). The vulgarity was completely unnecessary. Muck

Yep, totally agree. Probably not a good idea, unless we submit questions or something like that (like the "Ask Andy" column). But, that would be much more time that he would have to spend on this and he's already being quite gracious.

First of all, there's no reason why anybody would have a problem with Damion being here. Players are entitled to participate in whatever they want to during their free time. Several players have radio shows, newspaper journals, etc. How is this any different? It's not like Damion will be sharing gameplans or any other top-secret information. Besides, Coach Saban is a fan-oriented guy and Damion's presence at FinHeaven will be nothing but positive for the Dolphins.

Everyone's just double checking. They wouldn't want to see it gone after a few issues due to some internal issues that weren't worked out prior. Brett's a solid guy though so I'm sure he's got it all worked out :)

My thanks to you as well for helping get this set up and thanks to Damion for being willing and wanting to do this for us. Like some have already said, I think Damion just found a whole bunch of new fans.

Agreed. No other agent and client that I've ever heard of is so involved with the fan base than Brett and D-Mac. This is great news for Fin Fans and Finheaven. Only thing better: Seeing D-Mac destroy Trevor Pryce or whoever the Broncos send out. But for now, Props to Brett and D-Mac as well as the rest of FH staff for making this happen.

OK...out of respect for Damion's graciousness in doing this for us - and AJ's persevering effort in making this happen - I will hereby suspend my usual smart-*** comments regarding our OL's play. Even Seth McKinney.

:evil:

Seriously, thank you AJ, Brett, Damion and all who made this happen...and congratulations once again to FinHeaven for bringing us exclusive content we wouldn't have even hoped for otherwise. You rock.

Congrats, finheaven! Thanks, D-Mac, for participating in the website! I hope that through your continued participation, we'll all be able to better understand the least understood, nearly-invisible, and the most crucial part of the football team: the offensive line. All too often, we fans tend to notice the OL at inopportune times, most usually when a left tackle whiffs a pass-rusher, leading to the QB being carted off the field.

Finheaven, by far, is the best football fan website all around! What's next? :)
