    Four games cancelled and Miami makes it to the Super Bowl...

    Yeah, yeah, yeah. I am sure the trolls will come out at the title. But I am still curious.

    If they don't agree to a new CBA until late into the season. And SOME HOW Miami makes it all the way to the Super Bowl AND wins, would you feel the same as if we had played a whole regular season and won the Super Bowl? I mean if we did win it most everyone would say that we had it handed to us because it was a short season, or it was easy because not all teams were ready. Blah, blah, blah, blah. The exuses would be endless I am sure.

    I honestly think that I would not be as excited. Because if the season gets shortened I too would bash which ever team wins the Super Bowl. Regardless of who won it.

    So what do you folks think?

    It would be huge! I don't care how we got there. 16 games, 10 games, 5 games. I wanna know how a Dolphin Super Bowl win would feel since I wasn't around in the 70's.

    Would Miami fans have felt it was less of an accomplsihment had you won SB XVII against Washington? That was a 9 game season, I don't see the skins giving that trophy back and Wash won again when real players only played 12 games in 1987. They all count.

    Would be fine with me. My Spurs won the 1999 NBA Finals in the lockout shortened season. Sure some people will always say it didn't count as much b/c the amount of games played weren't the same but every team in the league had the same fair chance to win it all and didn't so there isn't much else to say.

    I was only 8 and didn't really care about the strike once the playoffs hit. That season was a lot of fun right until everything fell apart in the 2nd half of the Super Bowl. I actually expected the Dolphins to win it! Hard to believe almost 30 years later and that was still my favorite season having gone through the playoffs, won the AFC and still "in it" in the 4th quarter of the Super Bowl I couldn't wait to try again next year.

    No, I wouldn't care if the championship finally came during a strike season.

    12 or 16 games, we would still be competing against top notch competition. We would have won the games we needed to, others teams wouldnt have, and have the trophy to support it. If people wanted to add a stigma to it, all we would have to say is "then why didnt your team win it?".

    I'd have no problems with it.

    as long as every team as an equal shot at it, a championship is a championship. It would be different if for some reason all the other 31 teams were disqualified and we won it by default or something, but as long as we're in a fair competition, a ring is a ring.
