    We were top 10 in attendance 10 years ago. Hell we were 16th around the time Ross bought the team. We can only take so much losing.

    Please, DON'T put us in Orlando or Tally.

    In my opinion, it's Miami or bust.

    The thought of it being a reality makes nauseous. If it ever happens , please leave the trophies and and the ring of honor because those belong to the city of miami. As strong and wide spread as our fanbase , I wish there was a way for us to take over the franchise like the way packers fans did.

    reen Bay Packers Inc., has been a publicly owned, nonprofit corporation since Aug. 18, 1923, when original articles of incorporation were filed with Wisconsinís secretary of state.

    One of the more remarkable business stories in American history, the Green Bay Packers organization has been kept viable by its shareholders ó its unselfish fans. Even more incredible, the Packers have survived and thrived during the current era, permeated by free agency and the NFL salary cap.

    Fans have supported the team financially through five stock sales: 1923, 1935, 1950, 1997 and 2011.

    Today, 363,948 people (representing 5,020,523 shares) are owners of the iconic franchise.

    The organizationís fifth stock offering, which ended Feb. 29, 2012, was a tremendous success with more than 250,000 new shareholders becoming owners. For the first time in a Packers stock offering, international sales in Canada were issued for a short while and accounted for approximately 2,000 shares.

    More than 269,000 shares were sold during the offering that began Dec. 6, 2011.

    All proceeds from the offering are going toward the expansion of Lambeau Field, a $143-million project that includes approximately 6,700 seats, new HD video boards, a new sound system and two new gates. The new sound system was in place for the 2011 season, the new video boards and one gate were launched in 2012 and the new seats and second gate will debut for the 2013 season.

    To protect against someone taking control of the team, the articles of incorporation prohibit any person from owning more than 200,000 shares.

    The corporation is governed by a board of directors and a seven-member executive committee.

    Shareholders do not receive any dividend on the investment.

    Sure. Then again, I live in WV. I'm a fan of the team, not necessarily the city.

    That being said, I'm glad our Dolphins aren't going anywhere.
    2014 Goals:
    1) Win the next game.
    2) See goal #1

    I would but would there be a chance that the city of Miami would get a team in the future? What the hell happens then? Say they leave for L.A. or somewhere in 2014 and in 10 years the city of Miami gets another team. Let's say the 2023 Dolphins (or whatever their name would be) were Super Bowl favorites when the new Miami team comes into play.

    What the **** happens then?

    In addition, the team has been a major part of NFL history, with the undefeated season, Don Shula and Dan Marino. I doubt they would want to lose all that. If the team moves, I doubt they would take the dolphin name with them since it wouldn't make sense in any other cities other than maybe LA.
    The NFL isn't dumb, they aren't about to lose a major market over a stupid stadium issue. They understand that winning teams perform quite well in South Florida, look no further than the current Heat fandom and look back at the glory years of the Dolphins.

    If the Dolphins become perennial contenders again, the fans will come back in droves, and there is no chance the team will move at that point.
    They do not have to use the name but they will own it along with the trophies as well as the history.
    When the Titans came to be they had to ask the Jets if they could use the name.
