    If stadium vote passes, Dolphins to stay in Miami through at least 2043

    The Dolphins would also sign a non-relocation agreement, agreeing to stay in Miami until 2043. The stadium renovation would be completed by September 2015, the NFL source said.
    A lot of other new details in this article about the proposed stadium renovations. Public money is actually 43%, not 49% as originally reported. Dolphins will also repay the money to the county in 2043.

    Man I hope this passes, would be nice to completely squash the relocation talk/rumors once and for all.

    I agree tired of hearing that there is even a small chance we would move the team. I wouldn't know what to do with my Sundays. It's been a tradition in my house for the last 3 yrs to watch every fins game with my 2 sons.

    Well there havent been any relocation talk or rumors just fans pulling stuff out of air. Not once has anything came out speculating the dolphins would move. I will say this does sound better than initially put out. I personally would prefer 33 percent by taxpayers, 33 percent by Ross and 33 percent from NFL. I do wish I could borrow money and pay it back in 30 years lol. Im totally against corporate welfare but at least this seems like an actual attempt to not be exactly that. I would also like in agreement that we will not be asked for renovation money until money is paid back.
    When death smiles upon you, the Infantry man smiles back. WV says Im not a patriot and Jeff Ireland is a Boss so it must be true.

    It sounds like a good deal to me. But I doubt people even look at the deal on offer. They will just look at the Marlins and vote no.

    Ross may not ever move the team out of Miami, but he isn't going to own the team forever. Eventually he is going to sell it to another billionaire, who is to say what that person will want to do with the team. With no lease with the area, it will always be a concern.

    lease or not the stadium comes with deal which isnt always the case. There are actually limited cities that can actually support an NFL team and it would be risky to move from a prime location and tv market to somewhere else. LA is a huge risk to move an established team that has drawn well when the team has been solid. We averaged 73,000 in 2002. The city of Miami or florida have dolled out plenty of money to help our team owners as well as subsidies as well as giving away land.
