    Would You Still Be a Dolphin if Pittsburgh Had Taken Dan Marino?

    Was watching some top 10 clips in another thread and got an interesting question to ask.

    Would you still be a Miami Dolphins Fan if Dan had been drafted by Pittsburgh, or would you be a Steeler?

    I would be because I am a Dolphan because my dad is and he became a fan in 1970 when Shula was hired.

    Well since I was born after he was drafted I guess it doesn't apply to me but even if Dan hadn't been a Dolphin I would still be a Dolphin's fan. Getting Dan was just a boost in lore for the Dolphins.

    I was a Dolphin fan well before Marino came to Miami so yes I would definitely still have been a Dolphin fan.

    Of course. Who decides to root for a team because of one player?

    When I was a kid, the Colts sucked and the games were always blacked out. I saw Dolphins games almost every Sunday. I'd say Dan was a huge factor in me becoming a Dolphins fan. I probably would have been a Colts fan if it wasn't for him but who knows.

    I was a Dolphin fan 13 years before Marino was drafted, so obviously.............
    WVDolphan:

    "
    Fiedler did not have the arm strength of Tannehill, but overall he was a much better QB."

    Attack the Person, Not the Ideas:






    Attack the person in some way. For example:
    • Attack their expertise, questioning their qualifications or experience
    • Comment on their inability to make a good argument
    • Attach them to discredited others

    Example


    You are not qualified to make such a statement.
    You would say that, wouldn't you.
    And who do you think is going to believe you.

    Attacking the Person is a form of distraction, forcing them into defense and away from their argument.

    Became a fan in the late 70's when I was a kid. Always have been, always will be, no matter who is quarterback!
