    Don't post the facts. You might hurt the brains of the dodo's who love to piss on us South Floridians.

    Fact is, 31% live below the poverty line. This is something I already knew because I have lived in Miami Florida since 1990. This place is a 3rd world country, no joke. Most everything is in spanish, and going to any American establishment like an Outback Steakhouse, McDonalds, etc... will have you met with people who can barely speak proper english with heavy accents.

    Miami's reputation as a nice, party, beach city is only because if you are rich, you can have a great time.

    A lot of people cannot afford to go to Dolphin games. Especially if the team has sucked ass for the past 10+ years. And the Dolphins are competing with a first class organization in the Miami Heat, who are truly a model to how a sports franchise should be run, in any sport.

    So before you go and piss on Dolphin fans for being "bad fans" again.....

    And Miami cancelled the second weekend of ULTRA, the huge electronic music fest they host every year, which a lot of my friends are pretty ticked about, let alone the millions of tourist dollars that will stay in tourist pockets.

    Not places that are in different counties + over 100 miles away.



    Also according to the Office of Management and Budget, the Miami Metro area (the real one) has over 5 million people :stare: I had no idea.
    What lol? That map is for Miami METRORAIL and other locations that begin with metro, etc., lol.

    The Miami Metro AREA extends all the way up to Palm Beach County. SOFLA.

    Good thing Mr. Ross is going to create 4,000 jobs with the stadium renovations.

    The Miami Metro area includes the 3 counties of Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade and stretches from Jupiter to Homestead.

    More people working on the renovations than additional fans we'll gain to come see it.

    There are parts of Miami-Dade itself that aren't included in the METRO area lol. Metro area doesn't necessarily mean Miami or inside the county in which a city is geographically located.

    Please, Just like the I-595 construction was supposed to create all these jobs, yet they went and got people from out of state for less to do the work? There is loopholes in everything and Mr. Ross didn't gain 5 billion dollars by being this saint. You best believe whatever his "plan" is, it revolves around lining his pockets right first.

    Of course not, imagine if the Everglades didn't exist . . . I think the population would be pushing over 20 million by now
