    Probably has nothing to do with the 4 losing seasons in a row and the complete state of irrelevance the franchise has been in since I have a conscious memory, right?

    Im not going to tell you the fans arent fickle, because they are. But that works both ways. If we build a winning franchise, the people will come. Its been proven before.

    What? If Ireland leaves is he taking the beach with him? I keep hearing that has a huge impact on attendance.

    Well said.

    For the first time since the 60's(or pre-Shula) weve had 4 consecutive losing seasons. And yet the reason Ross wants to keep Ireland is "continuity". Sounds about right for Miami Dolphins logic.

    Now i know why fans question if Ross wants to win.
    "Ignorance is not an excuse" were the words Goodell used when describing why those involved in the Saints bounty scandal would not avoid punishment.

    There will be more empty seats with Ireland. More fans would come with new hope. JI has to prove himself to be more than a souvenir of the Trifecta term.

    You are aware Miami used to average 73k fans a game right? That was 10 years ago or so. Your either young and not aware or always finding excuses to blame fans as opposed to the organization.

    In Miami, apparently 1st round quarterbacks don't either. Look, season ticket sales are not going to instantly go up because Ireland is fired. Sparano was public enemy #1 in 2011 and once Ross replaced him with Philbin, ticket sales dropped. Even if Ross would fire Ireland after this season, I bet you the ticket sales would again drop or stay about the same, I wouldn't anticipate any major increase.

    So since Ross already knows that there will continue to be poor local support in 2013 the question becomes whether or not you think Ireland is the guy to turn the team around. I know Ireland has been here since 2008, but I guarantee you that Ross gave him somewhat of a pass for what happened between 2008-2010 because Parcells was in charge of the football department those offseasons. I truly believe that Ross is judging Ireland on what he has been able to do from 2011 on and since this a new type of team under Philbin than it was under Parcells/Sparano. I am not saying Ireland should be retained, but I am certainly not surprised it appears he will be.

    Ross is apparently a great believer in the continuity of suckage

    I also know the playoff game in 2000 against the Colts was blacked out. Please, let's not turn this into another thread about how poor the local support is. We all know how bad this is, let's try and keep it on track with the news about Ireland pretty much locked in as the GM in 2013.
