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
-Dan MarinoI just try to be myself, whatever that is. I don't think about how I'll be remembered. I just want to be consistent over a long period of time. That's what the great players do.
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.
Wisdom from a "QB Whisperer::
"No we have our FRANCHISE QB and I want to keep him rather than get 2 guys who may or may not be productive NFL players.
Palmer's situation is different and if I had my choice between Palmer and buttfumble, I'd take buttfumble"

And those who also get it, know that Ireland gets it. Those who are clueless are still concerned about cornfed and the running game"
WVDOLPHAN "The last thing this team should be worried about is the OC(offensive corn). When you add it all up, its really a pretty solid OC"
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
