I expect a winner now let me make this clear we are not rebuilding. All quotes from his "Round Table" and last years off season press conference.

    This little gem is the best!

    "Great, but I asked how that is different from last year or the year before. I mean, wasn't winning the plan last year?"This is really the first time I've really gotten involved. I was handed a situation that, one, I was kind of painted to the wall. If Parcells left that was my fault. If Miami loss that was my fault. And I have a lot of respect for Bill. But I didn't put together that organization. I also felt I should learn a little bit before making any moves. Sometimes making a move for the sake of making a move is sometimes the worst move you can make. So want to sit back and really assess the situation, which I was able to do. So it was good from that standpoint."




    Really like firing up your jet and flying across country to court a head coach while you still had one on the payroll? Roflmao looks like Ross gets his defense from Finheaven wen in doubt blame Parcells!

    I have the feeling that we have too many Dolfan versions of NYJunc here.

    At this point the Jets, Bills and Dolphins are running in sync to keep the Pats on top. But who knows maybe one day the Pats won't be good anymore.

    I really could care less about what Ross has to say, he says the same stuff all the time. Im not excited about the offseason nor am I dreading it. I will wait and see because I have no choice. Not sure why anybody would be super excited about Ireland with a few more draft picks lol or some money to spend. he has had picks and money before and he wasted both.
    When death smiles upon you, the Infantry man smiles back. WV says Im not a patriot and Jeff Ireland is a Boss so it must be true.

    FH So Stephen Ross Wants Stability? How About 7-9, 7-9, 6-10, 7-9?

    Stability is fine if a franchise is successful. The Miami Dolphins are clearly not. This team over the last 4 season has records of 7-9, 7-9, 6-10 (including an 0-7 start) and another 7-9 this season.Stephen Ross said the Dolphins would be a playoff team this season, they were not. Einstein Ireland said back in may that after watching game tapes of Tannehill and Robert Griffin III, that they were both similar players. Remember that? Is there ANYONE who watched both players this season who think they are similar? This is the kind of buffoon we have running an NFL franchise. So now we all know Dolphin fans, Stephen Ross wants stability and with Jeff Ireland running things there in Davie 7-9 is about what we will get next season and the season after that. Stability indeed.

So dont tell me ross doesnt spend money. Granted he's not a football wiz but he is a damn good business wiz.
    the only reason ross buys tickets ,has nothing to do with fans,its so blackouts don't affect his share of the nfl's big money t.v deals .if his team get blackouted he lose big,

    Not many people expected that we would win more than 4 games this year. In fact most NFL pundits had the dolphins as the worst team this year and us being 7-9 was a big surprise. Did you really expect playoffs this year with a new coach a extremely young team and a rookie QB?

    Things could be much worse. We are in better shape than the Jets and Bills. We have a QB to build around and a coach that has a brain. While Ross may not be a great speaker anyone actually watches that interview today can see that he wants to win and now that he has put his guy in he will take responsibility for not winning next year. If you watch this you do not see a man who will keep Jeff Ireland if ihe screws up this offseasons draft and free agency and next year ends the same or worse than the 2012 season.

    This is Ross's last chance, and quite frankly I would be more happy if Ross proves all the haters wrong and we do well next year (and the coming years) than the alternative.

    I was wondering about, financially it might make sense to buy every seat in the stadium depending on how much he makes in tv revenues

    3. Ireland and the team needs to win in 2013 or else
    4. Draft is how you build the team, not through free agency. Though if a player is there in free agency that can really help, they will go after him
    5. Money is no issue when it comes to chasing free agents

    All good points and truths. Now is when fans and media spin what he said to make negative threads and articles. Predictable puppies.
    I agree with what you said. Ross didn't say anything negative. He is right, we win everyone is happy.
