    So Long and thanks for all the fish

    The late Douglas Adams, author of the "Hitchhikers Guide to the Universe", had the most appropriate words of farewell. As the dolphins left the planet, shortly before Earth was demolished to make way for a hyper space bypass, a final performance if only it could be translated by the human spectators should have be understood as "So long and thanks for all the fish".

    The board has given me much. Opportunities for sharing views and debate on my obsessive fanaticism for the Fins. Web references for many resources on Football news and analysis. Good companionship. :cool:

    In spite of the efforts of the moderators of this site, finding those experiences of old is now rather less joyful and more pointless that extracting peanuts from elephant excrement. The juvenile jills fans (rather than those more mature and respected adversaries) have killed a good friend. Like a favourite drinking establishment that has suddenly started being frequented by Al Quaida storm troopers, the watering hole has gone sour.

    I'll miss some of you Dolphin fans, and owe you thanks, particularly 87, 06, 39, ICE, and of course AJ. I bid you adieu and hope that one day it finds again it's vibrant spirit, cameraderie, informed comment and good spirited debate. As Spok says, "Live long and prosper Dolphans". I'll raise a glass to you all when we win in San Diego. Go Fins. :happydrin
    Looking forward to seeing an offensive specialist as head coach

    GazPhin,

    You will be missed. I hope you will reconsider or at least check back periodically to see how its going. This current invasion will subside, particularly when there is lots of team-specific stuff to talk about.

    Sincerely,
    Dave/39

    I really wish you would stay Gaz, this too will pass, and we are going to make drastic changes if this is the norm around here.

    I know this board is smaller in comparison to the BBI, and we are not even through our first year of life, but it is about the Miami Dolphins and their fans first and foremost.

    We are respectfully asking the Bills fans to leave, and if they don't then we will simply begin banning them.

    It's fine to have a few visitors, but when they plan invasions, it really becomes a problem. These are our boards, and we will take them back.

    please stay

    Too little too late. A week later and they totally own these forums and turned these forums into trash. I'm pretty much gone too until you guys can get a handle on your boards.

    Ok Guys, I'm not deaf to your entreaties...

    ..and I like being here. I respect the efforts you're making to restore order and I'll keep a watching brief to see how successful it proves.

    SHAME ON YOU!!!!!:yell: :yell: :yell:

    You let 3 or 4 days of Bored Bills fan posts drive you away????

    Brothers...yous gots to rise up above the stupidity...If you can't realize that they are bored and have nothing better to do and will probably STOP coming here (at least until we come close to playing them)...And after we BEAT them...You won't be hearing from them at all...then maybe this isn't the MB for you afterall
    Love your shoes...

    Re: So Long and thanks for all the fish

    Gaz, Ive got a question. I know U have been posting here since Feb '02. But do you have any other M-Board experience? The reason I'm asking is quite simple, EVERY board I've gone to goes thru this from time to time. Rival fans fly in, have their fun, and before U know it their gone, IMHO, not a big deal. The Admins. always come in and do their job and all is serious again. This is just the off-season.
