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.
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

Brent Grimes: I have never been a free agent. I picked Miami because they are building something great here and I want to be a part of it.
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
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.

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.
