LOL at the notion that I don't break any news. Remember when I wrote last January that the Dolphins were switching to a 4-3 defense? And Armando tried to claim that the report was bull****? How'd that one work out?
And that's just one example.....
Ben Volin and Barry Jackson are the best local guys. Only guys I go to for info. I go to Omar for yucks and to make myself feel more intelligent.
I wish someone would send a letter to Armando about Armando:
I'm a life long Dolphins fan living in New York. Living in NY I have a better pulse on what the Bills beat writers are doing than I do the Miami Dolphins beat writers. I'd take Mark Gaughan of Buffalo articles eighty five times over yours and four thousand times on Sunday. The problem is speculative writing and reaching for news worthy facts. While Gaughan covers more the basics of football like the head coaching search in Buffalo, the up coming draft, team needs and free agency you tend to cover things like "Where is Steven Ross's private jet heading....could it be for a new GM", "Yesterday I talked to several "inside" sources and they all say Egnew isn't going to make it" and of course "what really is the Miami Dolphins off season plan?"
While the stories you provide are indeed entertaining for there lack of insight they are also readily available from the lowest of website including Bleacher Report. I would like to see more out of you Armando, gaining slightly more football related topics would get you to the level of Omar but that isn't a very lofty goal either, that is like aspiring to star in Killer Klowns From Outerspace yeah it gets you on TV but an Oscar nod it will not. No Armando I think you can get to Ben Volin's level with a little effort and insight. Grab a seat and a keyboard and call of those "inside" sources and grab and interview with Ryan Tannehlll or Cameron Wake. Maybe even some insight into the actual reason Ross's jet heads toward NYC so often his huge development project in Manhattan. Maybe a little depth on the contracts of veterans like Bush, Hartline and Long or maybe an article on how Philbin persevered in Miami even after the loss of his son given the one year anniversary of his death is upon us.
So in closing, enough of the half truths and speculation that makes up little more than tabloid news, give us something on par with the local town newspaper, we aren't asking you to be the BBC News or Time Life, just good enough to be a Buffalo beat writer with some Miami sprinkled in. That's all we want.
