    News2 Dolphins may concede state dollars in stadium fight

    A rewrite of a state bill could deny the Miami Dolphins as much as $90 million in Florida funds if the team starts the renovation of Sun Life Stadium as planned this summer, people close to the franchise said Wednesday.

    The revised bill that passed the Senate Monday dropped a provision that would have allowed the Dolphins to apply for state stadium funds in the coming months, when the team hopes to begin a $350 million upgrade of the 1987 stadium in time for the 50th Super Bowl in 2016. The Dolphins executives and advisors managing the stadium fight believe the revised bill effectively bars Sun Life from receiving state dollars if construction work starts in 2013, according to two sources close to the team.
    Sen. Oscar Braynon, the Miami Gardens Democrat who wrote the Dolphins-backed bill, confirmed that the new language does prevent the team from receiving new state dollars if the project starts this year. He said he does not know what the Dolphins plan to do, but suggested a delay in the start of construction was possible.
    It may move their timeline, Braynon said. It may force them to move their timeline to fit in with what the bill says.
    "It happens all the time," Taylor said. "It's not an exact science and personnel guys aren't the end-all, be-all. " Jason Taylor,2011

    I was hoping for the rebuild but I believe its rumored that the 50th Superbowl will likely take place in Santa Clara where the new 49ers stadium will be. Because correct me if I am wrong but I believe superbowl one was played there so it would only make sense for them to vote to have the 50th there.
