    WOW, very good points.

    Well I hope you're not insinuating that Florio might have some sort of bias against the Dolphins. I've been told many times here that there are no agendas in the national media. the Dolphins get this treatment only because they have been merely mediocre and if they start winning more, everyone will be fair.

    If the son really went to West Point then he has had plenty of opportunity to learn right from wrong. The kid made a major mistake.

    To lay this at the farther's feet is ridiculous. The son is a GROWN MAN. And to somehow connect this to coaching acumen is beyond a stretch.

    This doesn't have any bearing on Joe Philbin's skills as a father let alone his skills as a coach.

    However it is a distraction for him, certainly. I think it's OK to talk about it within that context.

    A great coach would even use it as a learning tool for his players as for what can happen when you make poor choices and the subsequent consequences you have to deal with afterwards.
    When I die I want to hire the Miami Dolphin's to be my pallbearers so they can let me down one last time.

    I'm still amazed Philbin held up as well as he did during his first season with the Dolphins, coming on the heels of his son's death. A new job in a new city, away from his family. I personally would have been a wreck.

    He shouldve called Brian Hartline. We all know Hartline is an expert at fleeing the scene of an accident caused by driving intoxicated.

    Kind of like your hit and run drunk posting....I mean, "Like a Boss" was a byproduct of alcohol right?

    Hope he is a better football coach than father
    And how would you know what goes on in the Philbin household. Your comments are just as silly as Florio's.

    It is his son's responsibility but this is now the second son that commits a crime and doesn't take responsibility for it.
    His son may be a grown man but there is a definite lack of character there in that bloodline.
    And you know this how? How do you know anything about the Philbin family other than what you read? Once again, you are acting just like Florio. Uppity "know it all" attitude with nothing substantial to back it up.
    All kinds of people have all kinds of family issues. To lay the blame of a sons mistake at the feet of his father is frankly stupid.

    Because Florio is an ass hole.

    I agree. It had to be a very difficult time for him.
    Of course a new job and a new city must be exciting, he's been roasting on the BBQ since day one. Especially here on whats supposed to be a Dolphin forum.

    Joe Philbin has nothing to do with what happened. It is his sons action and responsibility. To put any of this on Joe is just wrong.

    and imo, this has nothing to do with the team. will not affect any win/loss.
    I agree, this is an issue with his son who is an adult and made a stupid decision if the accusation is true. That said, I'm sure it weighs on Philbin's mind, but if nothing else he appears to be a consummate professional and should be able to separate personal problems from professional ones, its the nature of the beast.
