    Everything Rapoport said about Dee's answers to him suggested a longer term focus. Nowhere in the report did Dee suggest that how much the team wins in 2013 would guide Ross' decision whether to sell the team or not. Nowhere in the report was the term, "in the very near future" used. The original poster took a few liberties in recapping the report, perhaps reading into it things that might not have been there.
    Damn.

    Great...sell the team Ross...the Miami Heat owner can buy the team...Ross should focus on real estate and his celebrity friends.

    I can't believe Im hearing this, no more Dolphins. This is like a death in the family. I believe this going to take the air out of this team, next year. Just like how the 95 Browns struggled, when they found out they were moving. I believe the 2013 Miami Dolphins will go, 4-12. Im done with football, Im not going watch it ever again.

Nobody who wants to move the team is getting their balls within 10 miles of owning the Dolphins.
    NFL ownership is the 'whale table'… cash, no paper. If you got it, you get in. Status quo is a straight money play. The vetting criteria can't be all that diff (see Cleveland), prob 5 questions… #1: got 2-3 billion cash money? #2: are the bodies well hidden? End of questions. And please believe, money is all it's about; everybody's for sale. Everybody.

    Only a L.A person would think that. Smoke another one. You do realize that they're going to change the uniforms and team name, and they'll be no more Dolphins.

    This is a complete non-story... read this post from ckp in this thread:

    Should be noted that a few of the things the original poster said are not accurate.

    Ian Rapoport explained that when he asked if the team will relocate, Mike Dee said not while Steve Ross is the owner, but "(Dee) said whoever acquires the team maybe in 5 or 10 years, getting the stadium deal done would be their number one priority."

    Then when Rapoport asked "Would Steve Ross be open to selling?", he said that Dee told him "it's too early to tell" and that it would depend on several things, the business of the team, wins and losses, that Ross loves being an owner and is committed to it as you can tell by the massive free agency that Miami had, that Dee and Ross both like the long term prospects of the team and organization, but just that without a stadium that "raises a ton of questions".

    Everything Rapoport said about Dee's answers to him suggested a longer term focus. Nowhere in the report did Dee suggest that how much the team wins in 2013 would guide Ross' decision whether to sell the team or not. Nowhere in the report was the term, "in the very near future" used. The original poster took a few liberties in recapping the report, perhaps reading into it things that might not have been there.

    Ross has managed to make this team a 3 ring circus! Sure never ever see this type of crap out of Robert Kraft.

    I was saying the same stuff as you the other day as far as a new owner moving the team...the ross go back to new york is in reference to him trying to buy the jets before he bought the fins...Ross doesnt care what team he owns, he just wants to be apart of the rich men stroke my ego club...
