    I was definitely a fan before Dan. But he certainly didn't hurt the fandom.

    I am 42 and I became a fan of our Miami Dolphins at age 12. My dad and brother are Chicago Bears fans I was too growing up. I rebelled against them when I heard of the Dolphins (that is my favorite animal) that year they went to the Super Bowl against the Redskins. I went to that Super Bowl XVII at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. I used to live in Rialto, CA and my Dad knew a good friend of his and got us tickets. We lost 27-17.

    Then Dan came to our team in '83. No, I became fan inspite of Dan Marino. But, I got to watched the GREATEST QB EVER TO PLAY IN THE NFL which made it even better for me as a fan.


    GO DOLPHINS!!

    same here bro older than the hills as the ole sayin gose ,i became a dolphin fan when i started watchin david woodley and don strock playin QB for miami and it was right at the end of there career when Marino stepped in as a rookie when both woodley and strock was hurt and shula put danny into the starting role and Marino took off from there , But Danny boy wasnt lost out there he had some very good WRs to throw to and a good TE as well , and seeing him light it up i was just stunned seeing him do that as a rookie ,and the rest is history, lol.

    I became a Miami Dolphins fan in 1970 because of Don Shula and football was just starting to get interesting down here in south Florida.
    Before his arrival, it was very Ireland-like.

    I was a fan since early 72 season. Dan was great and it was not his fault we didn't win a superbowl with. I did enjoyed watching him play. We were always in the game as lpong as there was time on the clock.

    Ozzy rules!!

A lot of fans said hisarm strength was gone and his mobility issues telegraphed his handoffs.
