Thru the recent run of below average Dolphins football, there are a ton of fans out there that love this team. I'm one of them...I stood them thru a 1-15 season, so this 3 season slide we're in isn't going to stop me from supporting my team however I can. Look at the Lions, the 2008 and 2009 teams we're still averaging 50,000+ attendance numbers even in the midst of going 0-16 and 2-12 during those miserable seasons. That's determination...and now they're starting to turn things around after DECADES of futility.
Yeah have an empty stadium and see how long Miami has a football team. They only thing not showing up would do is get them to move the franchise.
I love all this "Ireland is the worst thing to happen to Miami", "Ireland ruined the franchise" talk as if the Dolphins weren't the worst team in the league before he took over.
Not every human is a manipulative, opportunistic, letch... or at least that's what I'm told.
i'm not going to deny the fact that you are a real fan, you're just not a very bright one.
no matter who's running the organization, boycotting games isn't the answer. you support the players regardless of what decisions (or lack thereof) management has made. get a grip man.
I won't be going and I'm fairly close. I haven't gone in about 7 years now actually. One, they suck, just not even competetive and the other reason it being too expensive. I actually find myself having a hard time watching the games and football in general anymore. It's just so slow, commercial riddled, flags ruin the games, cant even touch the QB or WR. It's just not really fun to watch anymore so I usually will just watch the Miami game anymore.
However, as soon as the Dolphins start winning people will flock to see them. There's a ton of good high school football teams here, and all the best raw football talent is in South Florida. A lot of people love football in Miami.
The Dolphins just find ways to piss the fan base off every year, and then they lose basically every year.
By mid october the stadium will be empty with this squad
