    Fox News is the worst thing to happen to conservative politics since...

    ...

    Nope. Can't think of anything. It's the worst thing to ever happen to conservative politics.
    That's an assumption fit for... Fox News.

    You wouldn't believe some of the **** gets shoveled in the PoFo. The Fox News bots aren't even the worst ones. The people who post **** from infowars as if it's a legitimate source, on the other hand....
    I'm giving you a choice: either put on these glasses or start eatin' that trash can.

    I will say this, though. Fox News has been an absolutely brilliant messaging machine. No doubt about it. Brilliant. It's only just now starting to fall apart as the Republican Party has split in half, but their brand anti-elitism victimhood combined with dog whistle racism, paranoia and convenient amnesia has been unbelievable and terrifying to watch, sort of a book bonfire on steroids.

    It's not over the line on this site. Right wing diatribe is allowed to stand in this forum. Repeatedly. Same handful of posters. Meanwhile, I got warned for a post that wasn't 5% as forceful or opinionated. But it was in the other direction. All I said was voter fraud was a myth compared to voter suppression.

    The scary aspect is the administrators don't recognize how imbalanced they are, allowing the post in this thread to sit there hour after hour. There's probably a frenzy among the right wing posters to immediately alert on anything they consider mildly objectionable.

    It's a conspiracy!

    I can see them now... diving into their Eisenhower era bomb shelters and hand cranking an old, but still functional air raid siren.

    "Remember the Dolphins Stadium Proposal Thread!!" is the rallying cry

    I'm here to tell the truth about top secret Air Force project BAR STOOL. Gamma ray radiation from the particle accelerator under Joe Robbie Stadium is real! Get out while you can! This bad football team is just a front for something far more sinister!

BUT all major News organizations chose not to report the truth, intentionally covering up what happened, parroting the administration lie. Cheerleaders, not news reporters. Only one organization told the truth: FOXNews.

    Benghazi is criminal. Not to mention the billions of taxpayer dollars funneled to cronies. High crimes in office. We need more News organizations to actually fill the role of truth-tellers, speaking TRUTH to power, not deceiving this country...

    Of course, people cutting on FoxNews are probably the same people who DON'T WANT to know the truth about Obama or Benghazi or about the hundred of billions of taxpayer dollars slushed off to cronies...

    Tell the truth. Free the minds of the American People!

    Agreed. At least take it to the Political Forum here.

    I don't know what's worse, the guys posting how much they love Fox News out of the blue, or the guys who clearly forgot to switch into their Democratic Underground forum browser tab before posting.

    Somewhere on the Daily Kos or Free Republic right now, I guarantee you there is a guy reading a random post about the Miami Dolphins in a 2016 election thread, wondering what the **** is going on

    Most definitely not. Now if you are talking out of the nbc/abc/mainstream stuff than maybe, I have no idea.
    I want the truth just as much as the next guy, if not more. I wasn't getting it from the mainstream/major news outlets.

    One thing I can say about this world in this day and age, if you want to find the truth, the real truth, you won't get it in a passive way....sitting on a chair and ''watching'' tv.
    At least imo. Finding truth requires a certain degree of active work/searching and critical thinking.
    Not the passive absorption of ''facts'' that you hear somebody on tv say, and then mimic those said ''facts'' as your own to the next guy.

    If you look behind the words and all the other **** ppl on tv spew, it's not hard to find rays of truth.
    If you forget what you think you know, and use a little critical thinking, it's not difficult at all imho.

    All I would say at the end is, just think for yourself. That's all I would advise when it comes to anything. Question everything that comes across your own brain, search for the truth yourself instead of hoping a guy on tv is going to come and dictate the truth to you word for word.
    That will never happen imo.

    The above is not soliciting opinions on whether Jeff Ireland did a good job on the off season. It is not soliciting ways in which he could have done better. It is forcing the opinion on everyone that Jeff Ireland had a successful off season, and the only thing up for debate is (in your own words) whether it was "good" or "great". It was accompanied by a claim that if the Dolphins don't succeed, it will be Joe Philbin's fault.

    You can try and disguise all this as innocently as you want. It was what it was, and it's no wonder it was met with such an overwhelmingly negative response.
    I stop by this forum almost daily, and I would say that around 90% of poster's posts said that Ireland did a good job this off season. It was not just my opinion. My asking for what he should have been done differently was in reply to your post, as IMO the forum had already spoken.

    From what I understand, Philbin and his staff have worked closely with Ireland and his staff in getting players they wanted. Perfect example was Ireland having dinner with Philbin and his coaches before the draft. He asked what player they would want above all others. Their answer was Jordan. He said he would take a shot, and it worked. This was quoted in Jackson's BUZZ at the Herald a while back, and also posted here before.

    So, IF Jordan does not work out, after all the coaches said they wanted him more than any other player in the draft, should Ireland be at fault for listening to them or, the coaches?

    Let's switch it back to Phans. Does anyone here believe that Ireland did a bad job on the MANY moves he has made this off season? IF so, it will be the first time for me reading it here, although I may have missed some posts.

    In the NFL, you acquire talent, which I believe Ireland has done. Then, it developing it, which is up to the coaches. It's been that way since the league started. Not saying every player has to be the right choice, that would be foolish but, coaches have to develop more hits than misses.

    It's a bit like what you and your guys do on the draft, which is required reading for Phinatics, and a PHANTASTIC job. You guys are gonna miss on some players, but hit on more than you miss. I'm expecting our coaches to do at least as well.
