    PS: Fergie ain't lookin so "licious" these days.
    not with you on the fergielicious statement

    I'm thinking Philbin & co. are having a very positive effect on Ross. This pleases me because I truely believe he loves the Fins.

    you can criticize Ross for star chasing (Manning, Harbaugh, and Fisher) and making some outlandish comments (Henne would be the best Miami QB since Marino) but I never understood other criticisms. The Fins were losing attendance when Ross became owner and he did a bunch of things to try and get local interest back in the club. Never understood people calling him a joke though. He never really, or at least not yet, played hardball with money and he doesn't get involved with football operations or make himself the face of the franchise. He goes to the locker room to be with the team after the game, and he's been sitting in the war room during the draft to learn how things work.

    To me his first few years mirror Arthur Blank's first few years as owner of the Falcons in a lot of ways. Good guy, does a lot of things to get more local interest in the team, star chased (Bobby Patrino, and tried for Bill Parcells) but when that didn't work out he went for lesser known guys (Dimitroff and Smith) and things started working out.

    He's corporate background didn't help with the hiring process, in business when you are ready to replace a CEO you find the replacement first( he got found out, didn't expect the level of press involvement) and when you don't know the industry you hire names not new creative guys who kill for the opportunity paycheck comes second.
    What I saw in Ross all along was that in spite of the mistakes, he was always trying to improve the team.

    We bought 200 tickets but we had a TON more people to buy tickets around our sections. There had to be more than 300 at the tailgate for sure...

    And not to nitpick but it was a cheeseburger and not a hamburger. I actually picked up Ross glasses for him after the burger knocked them off.
