With the state the stadium is in right now, the last thing MIAMI Dolphins fans should want is Ross selling the team. Right now, he might be the only thing keeping this team from heading west to LA.
    CLE fans clammored for Randy Lener to sell the Browns for years. The was clearly more interested in Aston Villa of the EPL. He finally gets the green light from mom ( she had controling interest) and sells. Haslam gets soaked and over-pays by at least $250 million. Now Haslam's company Piolt- Flying J is going to get crushed in a Federal investigation into rebates and cotract violoations. Haslam himself might be charged. If that happens, the NFL will force him to at least "park" the team with a realtive until the trials are over. If he's convicted, he will have to sell.

    Moral of the story ; be careful what you ask for, you just might get it.

    If this is all about hosting a Super Bowl then I could care less. We don't NEED fancy upgrades at the moment. The stadium is fine from what I can tell. How about we try winning some games first? You don't see Pitt out there clamoring for Super Bowls. If we build a winner then maybe they will feel inclined to build us something.

    once again, bottom line, Miami Dolphins are not making the league any money, which is the real problem. profit sharing.....


    but then people say build a winner and people will show up.

    I say fat chance. Miami is a hot bed of disgruntled know it alls who think billionares should just listen their bright ideas without considering what it takes to build something with local govt approval.

    i cant even build a shed in my back yard without approval from my town without some nosey ass clown who thinks they rule the world with their damn regulations.

    This team is making a move this year, too bad it wont fill the stands.

    malcontents everywhere I tell ya.

    Ross can go FAR down the road for all i care.

    i havnt been a fan of ANYTHING he has done so far, especially not getting rid of sparano before going after harbaugh.

    not firing IRELAND along with sparano.

    laying EVERY bad thing associated with the finz the last 4 years on bill parcells and THEN......... that article last week with ross saying how bad SPARANO damaged the team and saying how tony just couldnt get over him going after harbaugh while he was under contract and all the time telling him everything was fine and then tony having a poisonous attitude with the team, causing trouble, poor coaching, etc..... .

    he has a record so far as blaming EVERYONE BUT HIMSELF and staff for the teams problems, for HIS mistakes and shortcomings. its like i am watching a tv press conference from the white house!! he coddles ireland like he is a crippled newborn!! first shula with tom olivadotti. then wanny with jay feibler. and NOW, we have ross and ireland. WILL IT EVER END?

    all i want is for the DOLPHINS to remain the DOLPHINS. i dont care if their in alaska as long as the name, the logo and history are still there.

    i can understand why a lot of the florida fans, expecially those in miami area dont want them gone. i MYSELF want them to stay, but, only if the support for the team, fans and politics can start doing so. the team is a 2 decade loser with an empty seat stadium. season ticket holders dropping every year, especially the last 3. no BIG NAME STARS. this can NOT keep going this way. simple economics. i am as tired as ANY miami local fan of how bad this team has fallen, the mismanagement, goofy statements from the GM, wanton blaming of everyone from mother theresa to george w. bush for the teams front office blunders. its classless. tasteless and sounds VERY desperate!

    and i can see where attending the game in harsh heat and oppressive humidity to watch the team lose and be reminded how bad the situation is keeps one from going to the game. but, IF you folks in miami want YOUR TEAM to stay, you have to swallow the bitter pills and attend!! the lions have done it for 4 decades. how, i dont know, but, they did. and still do. a big reason is, even though they are perenial losers, they always have a BIG star to draw people, barry sanders, calvin johnson. that helps sell tickets. people love STARS!!

    but, as i said, i am NO fan of boss ross or anything he has done so far. the NFL just isnt his forte. he hasnt caught on. and even though it sounds like flogging a dead horse, he really damaged himself in the nfl inner circle and the media and his peers with the whole harbaugh thing. couple that with his boy wonder GM ireland and the "yo momma's a crack ho" incident and you can see theres no more room in the life raft.

    COME TO L.A.!! BRING THE TEAM AND ITS UNI'S AND LOGOS! BRING A NEW GM AND OWNER. i will be fine and dandy if thats how it plays out.

    What a load of crap.

    Easily the funniest post ive read on the subject. I'll ignore the majority of it and go to the obvious flaw:

    The Dolphins dont make the league any money by being in Miami? You do understand the league makes a giant chunk of its profit from television revenue, correct? Next years television contract is expected to earn the league $7 billion annually.

    Us fans should quickly inform the league the Miami market doesnt earn them any money before they sign the deal!
