    Sounds like an expanded version of the meaningless cliches you often hear from athletes giving interviews.

    He's basically saying to fans: "Stay with us folks! We're going to give it 110%!!"

    I wish he cared as much about the Dolphins as he does about the Wolverines.

    I really could care less what our clueless owner has to say. They will lead another coaching change which of course will be unsuccessful while him and Tammebaum are involved with the Dolphins.

    You take everything he says with a grain of salt, and some antibiotics if you're standing too close, but one thing he said, reading between the lines here, about how there are no short cuts, THAT is new coming from him, so perhaps he's realized that you can't just go and sign and cut a bunch of players as a method for success, it's not like real estate where you hire a landscaper, a painter and spruce the place up and get your sale.

    I'm not saying anything will come of it, just thought it was interesting to hear HIM say that, because with him it's always "next year will be better, I promise", but perhaps he's realizing that it isn't so easy in the NFL, and he will have to hire the right people to BUILD a quality franchise.

    Who knows, maybe it's just wishful thinking, but he can't be a complete idiot, right?

    Our problem is Ryan Tannehill. It is NOT our owner that spends every dime possible in every situation.

    I never said that was the answer. I only said Ryan Tannehill is our biggest problem. And I am correct.

    "We are going to conduct a thorough process led by Mike Tannenbaum to select our head coach that will not be constrained by convention in our approach. This search will be thorough and we will take it wherever we need to go."

    I hope their thorough search is better than their thorough redundancy....

    If the team truly belongs to the long suffering fans as Ross states it does. Does that mean that since it belongs to us, we can fire Ross, Tannebaum, Hickey, the entire coaching staff and anyone else where has been responsible for the decline of this franchise over the last seven years?

    Obviously it it is very cliche to state the team, "belongs to the Fans". Unfortunately though, the fans have no say so in anything and must rely on Ross to hire the right people to turn this organization around. After seeing how clueless he is when it comes to hiring good people to run this organization, many of us just wish he would sell the team and just stay in New York.

    I'm pretty sure Ross WANTS to field as good a team as possible. His intentions aren't the problem. His ability to do so is the problem.

    So yeah, fans do have a say in that if they stop buying tickets and merchandise, Ross may end up selling the team. But I doubt it would help put a better team on the field while Ross is the owner.

    Agreed. Not that he really has any further incentive to even do so. He just wrote thanking us for our support and capacity crowds with the **** product he just got done delivering to us. It's also as if he is aware we'll just keep crawling back despite the garbage he keeps fielding every miserable season.

    I like your real estate simile, because it's exactly what he's done in his tenure here. I do question that he'll really change his ways, because we've been buying the ****ty house he's sold to to us in spite the serious structural flaws his people have merely stuccoed and painted over.

    I stopped buying tickets after the 2013 season, once I moved to Maui in January 2014. I'm figured the thirteen hour flights to and from Miami was a bit much. Not to mention the cost of the flights, rental cars and hotel rooms for each home game.

    As far as merchandise is concerned. Other than a Dolphin hat I purchased a few years ago when my old hat started to show its wear. I gave up on buying Dolphin merchandise years ago. That is more for the young fans and at age 65, I don't think wearing a Dolphins jersey is appropriate at my age.

    My problem with Ross isn't that I think he doesn't want to put a better product on the field. I believe he does. I just don't think he has any idea how to go about it. He keeps hiring individuals who just aren't effective when it comes to building a quality football team.

    I don't believe Tannebaum is the right person to be in charge of football operations. As long as he is in that position, I really don't see this team improving in the foreseeable future.

    The reality is, Ross hasn't hired a single individual in his seven years as the Dolphins owner who has had a positive effect on the football team. He purchased a team which was 11-5 the year before he became majority owner and the team has gone downward ever since under his ownership.

    If Tannehill is the problem, why did he agree to sign him to a new contract before the season? Obviously the reason was because the men he hired to run the team told him that Tannehill was the long term answer at the QB position and Ross didn't know any better.

    The problem with Ross is his inability to hire quality football individuals to run the team.

    He obviously is an extremely intelligent man. He is certainly willing to spend the money to bring in the top free agents. He spent his own money to renovate the stadium. He appears to be a nice man. All these things prove that he is a good person, but none of them shows that he has the slightest idea about how to build a winning football team.

    For all his positive attributes, all we care about is the product on the field. That product under his ownership has been mediocre at best and this year it has basically been far worse than mediocre.

    Don't worry. I believe more & more sheeple will finally see the error in their ways and realize it's in the fan's hands. Make the biggest statement possible: "we are not buying what you're selling."

    Right on, man. And they're not getting any less. I attended 3 home games, but only because my buddy w/ season tix took me as a guest for 2 of them. But yes, the ticket prices have EXPLODED.
