    Icon 26 Politics Miami dolphins floridas first pro sports team.

    Although Florida is the traditional home to Major League Baseball's spring training, and nearly 2/3 of all MLB teams still have a spring training presence in the state, Florida did not have a permanent major-league-level professional sports team until the American Football League added the Miami Dolphins in 1966. The state now has three NFL teams, two MLB teams, two NBA teams, and two NHL teams. With two of its most historically-important teams, Florida is one of the most important markets for the Arena Football League. Golf, tennis and auto racing are also popular. Florida also hosts a variety of minor league baseball, football, basketball, ice hockey, soccer, indoor football and rugby union teams.
    I can only pray the history of this team and the ownership along with improved attendance and a winning record will convince the powers to be to drop some money into the stadium.its hard to believe we built the stadium in 1987 and it is in that bad of shape to keep a team here in Miami.what is the major issues with the stadium that would cause this team to have to build ,fix or sell?????????? i just dont get itis it politics???????

    The bs of stadiums hell we have built to stadiums for the Heat since like 88. Nothing sweeter than owning a pro team,

    There is no superbowl rotation.

    In actuality the dolphins were not Florida's first pro sports team. It was the Miami Seahawks of the AAFC

    Miami is the only NFL team that doesn't have a lease with their location. Part of the renovation agreement was signing a 30 year lease that prevents any future owners from relocating the team. The fear is that the eventual new owner will look at the poor shape the stadium is in and since he or she doesn't have a local lease can explore all options. Perhaps the new owner renovates the stadium themselves, maybe they build a brand new stadium, or perhaps they find it financially better to move the team to another city.

    There is no superbowl rotation in fact we were the only city to receive more than one superbowl in past 10 years Arizona will be the next one with 7 years between superbowls.
    Thats about the best any city can hope for is a superbowl every 8 years and thats probably pushing it. The superbowl has entered a new era and cities are being leveraged to build new stadiums and such.

    Tampa
    phonenix
    Houston
    San Francisco
    Atlanta
    Dallas
    New Orleans
    Indy
    Now NY
    Ford Field
    Possibly Minny when its finished


    Other cities are interested and alot is hanging on the NY superbowl. The NFL has started using the superbowl as a reward and these cities want to be paid back.
    There is no rotation for superbowl not sure why that keeps being brought up.

    When Cleveland moved they broke a lease. The Rams are attempting to get their lease broken.

    From Robbie to Huizenga and now to Ross, I don't think the Dolphins have ever had a true lease with the local area. Ross was trying to get that lease done and make sure future owners couldn't move the team.

    I understand the OP asking why the Dolphins have to move just because they can't compete to host a Superbowl. That's the dream of every owner to host one, second to winning one. My question is this.

    Not even looking into the numbers, would it be more cost effective to renovate the stadium or move to another city and build a new stadium? I would think renovating our current stadium, even paying 100% of it, would be easier and more cost effective.
