    I think the feeling was mutual.

    When healthy Long is an all pro. Has anyone thought that his feeling towards this organization might have soured after we let go of Henne? He played with him all through college then get drafted on the same team. I could see a scenario where he was pissed that Henne got cut and he knew he was the best LT in the league and just wanted to give a giant FU to the phins.

    I am glad he's gone. I really used to like him till I went to see the dolphins play live for the first time. It was in Dallas and when he passed 2 feet from me I tried to talk to him and he just blew me off. Ever since then I have disliked him. That's why this does not surprise me that he signed with the rams because of his attitude. Oh and btw davon bess and Brandon Marshall took 2 minutes of their time to talk to me.

    Does not surprise me if true. I recall stories in the media before the 2008 draft that he did not want to go to Miami, more a mid west kind of guy. Either way, it does not matter now.

    The saddest part is that with Volin leaving, we don't have many writers left, and the ones who already cover the team SUCK. I hope the PBP replaces Volin with someone worth while. This guy is terrible.

    Either way, Long is gone. I'm fairly positive we were outbid by the Rams. Long had too much back and forth to simply drive up the price.

    To be fair to jake he put his body on the line for this organisation. While injured he continued to play even though it was already a lost season (Sparano you ****ing idiot). I love jake long but I was glad he did not resign. IMO we have to find out what we have in Martin and bring in a RT like Winston.

    We are changing to a more pass orientated offense with a ZBS. Maybe Jake just felt that the Power running Rams, would suit his skill set better.

    Actually Starks was willing to give the Fins a discount on a long term contract. He tweeted it. It was something to the fact of "home town discount yes, but bargain closeout prices no". There was even a thread on here about it.
    When I die I want to hire the Miami Dolphin's to be my pallbearers so they can let me down one last time.

    Jake Long can go **** himself as far as I am concerned. He cares only about money, and not championships.
