    If the dolphins were to move to la, would you still follow them?

    Just bracing myself for a real possibility here or just wondering out loud what to do incase anything happens.

    Are we supposed to follow the team that moved or hibernate for a while and then wait till we get another team?

    Me too. I'm originally from Miami, but lived in Tampa for 6 yrs when I went to USF. I now live in Orlando so driving to a game would be easier.

    NO! I would hope that the team would be stripped of the name and logo....so I could root for Phins in the future. Some of the answers on this board really puzzle me; it's the Miami Dolphins for goodness sakes. I currently reside in Raven territory and let's just say that they still can't stand the colts, yet here people are willing to root for the organization no matter what. Same probably goes for Browns fans and their deep dislike for the Ravens, that's loyalty. I'm not tied to Steve Ross and the organization (people come and go...teams are sold) as much as I'm connected to the emblem and name.

    It would be hard because even though Im from that area , I never believed in just switching teams but if something like that happened i could not in good faith support a team that would do that to their fan base.
    Part of me is pretty disgusted with sports period with its prevailing attitude of not only do the fans need to support the team through tickets and merchandise but we also have to subsidize stadiums owned by billionaires.
    Its no surprise that the nfl is making record profits since they continually get upgraded stadiums at taxpayer expense.

    I guess it depends on how close to home you feel Miami is. Living near Chicago I wouldn't have a problem still following the Dolphins in LA. I follow the Bears almost as much as I do the Dolphins so I guess if I had to choose another team It'd be the Bears.

    No. Not unless the Dolphins name was left behind & the team became the Los Angeles Stars or whatever, similar to the Cleveland Browns situation & there became a "NEW" Miami Dolphins, in MIAMI, then I would be a fan of the "NEW" Miami Dolphins.

    No, especially since the Dolphins will be back eventually. A team dead last in revenue like the Jaguars will look at it as a business opportunity and move down to be ranked 15 just like the Dolphins currently are. The Miami market has too many benefits with the sponsors and TV deal, that even with the bad attendance, they're still middle of the pack revenue wise.

    The fact that Ross hasn't been able to capitalize is his own fault.
