I HAVE A DREAM TODAY. THAT THE POSTERS ON THIS SITE WILL RISE UP AS ONE. I HAVE A DREAM TODAY. THAT THE POSTERS ON THIS SITE WILL GET OUT OF THEIR COLLECTIVE PARENT'S BASEMENTS. I HAVE A DREAM TODAY. THAT THE POSTERS ON THIS SITE WILL PUT DOWN THEIR BAGS OF CHEETOS, PULL UP THEIR UNDERWEAR AND GET OFF OF THEIR FELT LINED BEAN BAG CHAIRS. I HAVE A DREAM TODAY. JUST NOT A LOT OF CONFIDENCE!!!

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

MR. ROSS, I AGAIN IMPLORE YOU TO OPEN YOUR EYES TO WHAT EVERYONE OTHER THAN YOU ALREADY HAS. NO ONE WANTS TO COME TO THE DOLPHINS SO LONG AS JEFF IRELAND IS THERE!!! WE ARE ONCE AGAIN HEADING TOWARDS A SEASON OF MEDIOCRITY AT BEST DUE TO OUR INABILITY TO ATTRACT ANYONE OF QUALITY TO OUR FRANCHISE. IT'S NOT THE CITY, IT'S NOT THE WEATHER, IT'S NOT THE NIGHTLIFE, IT'S NOT THE PLAYERS, SO WHAT CAN IT BE? (INSERT JEOPARDY THEME!) THIS ISN'T FINAL JEOPARDY HERE, IT'S THE 100 DOLLAR QUESTION IN THE FIRST ROUND, UNDER THE CATEGORY OF "EASY FOOTBALL Q AND A."
THIS HEAD COACHING DECISION IS ABOUT AS COMPELLING AS WATCHING CSPAN DURING SENATE VOTES!! REALLY, WHO GIVES A CRAP WHICH ONE OF THESE THREE CANDIDATES GET THE JOB? ARE THEY GOING TO BE ABLE TO BEAT A BILL BILLACHEK COACHED TEAM CONSISTANTLY? NO! ARE THEY GOING TO BE AMONG THE ELITE COACHING FRATERNITY IN THE NFL? NO! ARE THEY GOING TO BE ABLE GO INSTILL CONFIDENCE IN DOLFANS EVERYWHERE? NO! GET RID OF JEFF IRELAND AND REAL COACHES WITH CREDIBILITY WILL BE BEATING A PATH TO DOLPHIN HEADQUARTERS!!! UNTIL THAT HAPPENS, WE WILL LANGUISH IN MEDIOCRITY! WAKE ME UP WHEN THE DECISION IS MADE. BETTER YET, WAKE ME UP WHEN IRELAND IS LET GO!!!

SO LET ME SEE IF I'VE GOT THIS RIGHT. STEVE ROSS AND JEFF IRELAND ARE THE ONLY TWO PEOPLE ON THE PLANET THAT THINK IRELANDS' PERFORMANCE HAS BEEN SATISFACTORY. OKAY SO THE REST OF US ARE LEFT TO SUFFER FOR THEIR INABILITY TO EVALUATE A BOTCHED ABORTION OF A FOOTBALL TEAMS' PROGRESS. JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE I HAD ALL OF THE INFORMATION ACCURATE. SOMEBODY PLEASE STICK A FORK IN MY RETINA.
WHAT A SHAME! YET ANOTHER DOLPHIN LEGEND GETS TO JOIN THE RANKS OF THE RETIRED TO HAVE NEVER GOTTEN A SB RING. A QUALITY PERSON FIRST AND AN INCREDIBLE FOOTBALL PLAYER AS WELL. IT'S A SHAME THAT OWNERSHIP AND PLAYER PERSONELL DIRECTORS AND MEDIOCRE COACHING STOOD IN THE WAY OF TAYLOR, THOMAS, MARINO, DUPER, CLAYTON AND THE OTHERS. CAN ANYONE OUT THERE COME UP WITH A SINGLE PLAYER ON THIS TEAM AFTER THIS SEASON IS OVER, THAT PROVIDES THEM WITH CONFIDENCE THAT THEY WILL BE AMONG THE BEST AT THERE RESPECTIVE POSITIONS? I'LL ANSWER IT FOR YOU ALL, NO! IT'S A TEAM OF MEDIOCRE TALENT, LESS THAN SUCCESSFUL DRAFT PICKS, AND RETREAD FREE AGENT SIGNINGS! SURE, THERE ARE OTHER TEAMS WITH THE SAME OUTLOOK FOR THE FUTURE, BUT THE DOLPHINS HAVE A HISTORY OF EXCELLENCE FOLLOWED BY DECADES OF FAILURE. FEW IF ANY CAN LAY CLAIM TO THAT! WHAT A WASTE. ALL THE BEST MR. TAYLOR TO YOU AND YOURS, AND KNOW THAT WITH YOUR RETIREMENT YOU TAKE WITH YOU THE LAST OF THE QUALITY TALENT THAT WAS ONCE SO PREVELANT ON OUR ONCE PROUD FRANCHISE!!!

WHAT WERE YOU USING TO TAPE THE POD CAST WITH, A DUBBED OVER CASSETTE TAPE FROM THE 60'S? I GOT THROUGH 15 SECONDS AND 1 QUESTION AND A PARTIAL ANSWER BEFORE I DECIDED I'D JUST WAIT AND SEE THE RESULTS OF THE LAST 2 WEEKS RECRUITING REPORT. TALK TO THE SPORTS EDITOR ABOUT INCREASING THE BUDGET FOR SUCH HIGH PROFILE REPORTING ISSUES. I HEAR THE DOLLAR TREE HAS THREE CASSETTES FOR A BUCK. IF HE WON'T SPRING FOR IT LET US KNOW, I'M SURE YOUR FOLLOWERS WOULD DONATE FOR THE CAUSE!!!

DOES ANYONE ELSE FEEL AS THOUGH A FEW OF THE PLAYERS SEEM TO BE NOT TRYING TO WIN THIS GAME. YOU KNOW SORT OF LIKE THROWING IT. MAYBE FOR PERSONAL GAIN. LIKE NO BOWL FOR THE SENIORS, SO I'LL TAKE A LITTLE SOMETHING WITH ME WHEN I GO. JUST SAYING!!!

GOOD ARTICLE AND ACCURATE AS WELL. THE MAIN PROCESS WE NEED TO SEE BEAR FRUITS IS THE KEEPING OF THIS COACHING STAFF IN PLACE!!! IF WE CAN DO THAT, WE WILL BE FINE. IF NOT, WE WILL TAKE A BACK SEAT TO EVERY DECENT TEAM IN THE ACC. WE NEED THE CONSISTENCY OF HAVING A STABLE STAFF IN PLACE TO GUIDE US THROUGH THE PENDING PENALTYS SURE TO BE LEVIED BY THE NCAA. WE WILL COME OUT ON THE OTHER END REMOVED FROM THE SELFCENTERED PLAYERS WHO BREAK RULES, WHILE FAILING TO LIVE UP TO THEIR PRESS CLIPPINGS, AND HAVE PLAYERS WHO ARE CANES FIRST, AND HERE TO BRING BACK PRIDE AND CHAMPIONSHIP CALIBER PLAY TO THE "U"

@CANETILLIDIE, I'VE BEEN A FAN OF THE "U" SINCE LONG BEFORE YOU WERE JUST A GLEAM IN YOUR DADDY'S EYE, WHICH BASED UPON YOUR PREPUBESANT POSTS, I'M GUESSING WAS ABOUT 13 TO 14 YEARS AGO!!! DON'T TELL ME ABOUT THE GREAT PLAYERS THAT HAVE BEEN CANES, BECAUSE I CAN NAME MORE THAN YOU CAN COUNT TO. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THEM AND THIS IDIOT REGIS, IS THAT THEY DIDN'T NEED TO PUNCH OPPONENTS IN THE NUTS IN ORDER TO GET NOTICED. THEY PUNCHED THEM IN THE MOUTH AND DIDSO METAPHORICALLY WITHIN THE PARAMETERS OF THE RULES. THEY BEAT THEM DOWN PHYSICALLY AND DOMINATED THEM WITH THEIR TALENT, NOT WITH CHEAPSHOTS AT THE BOTTOM OF A PILE. FOR HIS EFFORTS, HE WAS SUSPENDED LAST WEEK, AND LOST HIS STARTING JOB THIS WEEK TO HIS REPLACEMENT WHO OUTPERFORMED HIM IN PRACTICE. HOW'S THAT DECISION WORKING OUT FOR HIM NOW? I'M GUESSING IT'S GOT TO FEEL LIKE GETTING PUNCHED IN THE NUTS!!!

HURRICANE STU, QUIT BEING PART OF THE PROBLEM AND BECOME PART OF THE SOLUTION. IF YOUR GOAL IS TO LOOK OR SOUND AS IDIOTIC AS POSSIBLE, TAKE ON AN ASPHALT TRUCK ON A CLEAR AUGUST DAY IN A PAIR OF YOUR SISTERS PANTYS, BUT DON'T POST MORONIC FODDER FOR THE AMUSEMENT OF YOUR GI JOE COLLECTION, AND YOUR DOG SKIPPY!!!

BY THE WAY, NOT FOR NOTHING, BUT JOE, BOLO AND KAZAAM TAKE AN ENGLISH CLASS ON PROPER USAGE OF THE LETTER "S" IT'S JUST REAL DISTRACTING WHEN A PERSON IS TRYING TO READ YOUR COLLECTIVE POSTS, AND IT'S AKIN TO READING A LETTER FROM A RETARDED THIRD GRADER!!!
ARE YOU SERIOUSLY HAVING THIS SURVEY. THIS TEAM MAY VERY WELL BE WORSE THAN THE 1 AND 15 TEAM FROM A FEW YEARS BACK. AT LEAST THEN THEY SEEMED TO CARE ABOUT THEIR INEPTNESS. WE WERE PROMISED A SURPRISE BY PLAYERS AND COACHES BEFORE THE SEASON BEGAN, WHEN THE PUNDITS SAID WE'D SUCK. WELL, SURPRISE, THE PUNDITS WERE RIGHT FOR A CHANGE. NOT THE SURPRISE I WAS HOPING FOR. THIS TEAM IS UNWATCHABLE. WE WAIT SIX MONTHS FOR THE SEASON TO START, AND IT'S OVER AFTER FOUR WEEKS. WHEN THE REAL FOOTBALL TEAMS IN MIAMI SHOW UP,PRO AND COLLEGE, FOR THAT MATTER, PLEASE TURN ON THE LIGHTS. UNTIL THEN I'LL STAY IN THE DARK AS TO WHAT THE HELL HAS HAPPENED TO THE ONCE PROUD PROGRAMS OF BOTH THE DOLPHINS AND HURRICANES!!!
WOW, REALLY LADY. NEWS FLASH. YOUR SON ISN'T MAKING THE PROS WHETHER HE PLAYS THIS YEAR OR NOT. YOU ARE AN APOLOGIST FOR HIS BEHAVIOR, AND IT'S PAINFULLY OBVIOUS WHERE HE GETS HIS CHARACTER FROM!!! WHEN YOU OPEN YOUR EYES NEXT TIME, REPLACE THE DOLLAR SIGNS WITH SIGNS OF INSIGHT. HE IS APPARENTLY PART OF THE PROBLEM AND NOT THE SOLUTION. WHEN HE GETS THAT DIPLOMA DOWN THE ROAD, MAYBE HE CAN BECOME A PRODUCTIVE MEMBER OF SOCIETY. I HEAR 7-11 IS LOOKING FOR THIRD SHIFT MANAGEMENT CANDIDATES!!! IF THAT DOESN'T WORK OUT FOR HIM, THERE'S ALWAYS A CHANCE HE CAN BE A BOUNCER AT THE HOTTEST STRIP CLUB IN MIAMI!!

I WOULD LIKE TO COMMENT ON BEEBER'S TAKE ON THINGS, BUT FOR THE LIFE OF ME, I DON'T UNDERSTAND A DAMN THING HE SAYS!!! ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS 2011, IS "EBONICS FOR DUMMIES" SO THAT I HAVE SOME SORT OF REFERENCE AS TO WHAT IT IS HE'S TRYING TO SAY!!! FOR GOD'S SAKE, TAKE AN ENGLISH COURSE OR TWO, YOU IDIOT!!!
