    I think with Beck it was the fact he kind of epitomized the 1-15 season. He was chosen by the guys who lead us to 1-15. Instead of boosting moral and play with his introduction, he made some awful/embarrising mistakes, played poorly and did'nt have any luck, all characteristics of that season. Then he was taken back out of team, confidence shattered.

    You can argue it was'nt his fault (poor O-line, no WR's, etc) and given the right conditions he may have been successful here, but when I hear the name of John Beck, I think of 1-15 and the awful memories of that season.

    That does'nt warrent the abuse that he recieves, but it definetly adds to it.

    It's not just Beck, Jason taylor was bashed out of town and plenty of others. All fanbases do it, I just don't understand it. 10 years ago Vinny Testaverde was a Jets hero, a couple of years later he was being run out of town, in '02 Chad was the greatest thing ever a couple of years later he's run out of town. It happens w/ all fanbases and I don't get it. I get venting frustrations and maybe bashing guys that bashed the team on the way out or bashed the fans but guys who just played hard and gave us everything they had I don't see why we bash them.

    I think you are dead on everything you have said, and I can't disagree with you any further. The american fanbase is a disgrace in all of the sports around the globe, and one of those reasons is that players who contributed a lot to the team and the community are basically in a lost thought as if they never meant something to the community. Yea these athletes get paid an extraodinary amount of money; however, we come to their games and they entertain us, take the pain, and show good spirit.

I'll never understand it.

    No chance of that ever happening although I must admit I happen to like alot of the people around here whereas before I started posting I had a different impression of most dolphin fans.

    Basically. They realized they made a mistake and reinstated me but I think the damage has been done so I'm not sure I'll go back.
