“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
I believe any man's finest hour - his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle...Victorious
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.
Ross says they're not moving period, but hypothetically, if they did, I would hope the city pulls a Cleveland with "The Browns" and legally enjoins the team from taking "The Dolphins" name, leaving it here for the next iteration for which I would then swing back from the NYG to root.
Hopefully the saga of Art Modell being a hated, vilified, unwelcome man in Cleveland until and beyond the day he died proves instructive to, and resonates with Ross who graduated from Miami Beach Senior HS, and lives a very social part time life in Palm Beach.
Doubt it will happen but if it did then, NO.
Why wouldn't I? I still click on threads even when I know you start them so clearly I'm a glutton for punishment
