    Why didn't they just name it Dolphins Stadium or leave it Joe Robbie Stadium. Their making it into a joke now as if we haven't been laughed at enough already. Haven't the Dolphins been laughed at enough with the 3 ring circus we had prior to Parcells arrival?
    Oh, I know, its the almighty dollar as if Ross needs the extra income.

    Welcome to Miami, Ross, you certainly made a statement with that move. What are they going to have now, a Logo on the front of the stadium with a shark with feet eating a Dolphin?

    the BEST part about all this, is that if we plan on keeping the stadium named after a beer, the NFL won't allow us to host the superbowl anymore. That would just be a GREAT way to increase our fan support, Ross, take away our superbowl!!! grrrr

    luckily, the contract is supposedly only for a year, so the superbowl 2 years from now which we're planning on hosting shouldn't be affected, so long as we get a different sponsor by then

    Well, it could be worse, maybe they will offer free beer giveaways?

    And it's not like it's "Depends Undergarments Stadium"...

    Seriously... can't we have a sponsorship with Jimmy Buffet without renaming our stadium?

    hmm it would be worth it if they gave away free Landshark beer though.

    So then, we're going to have this stadium name for a year and then another stadium name next year? As though that wont make them laugh at us even more.

    Well as far as corporate schills go, at least this one has some personality. I'd rather the stadium be named after a beer than a bank.

    and you can almost garauntee there will be a Jimmy Buffet Buffet Meal for the low low price of 40 dollars consisting of all you can eat limes and salt shakers.

    Me thinks you all protest to much.....

    First of all...Jimmy Buffett is an icon of Florida...Landshark stadium actually sounds pretty cool if you ask me. Rather have that than Fed Ex Field...or Safeco Field...

    The Dolphins cant just rely on all of their current fans..they need to attract new fans to the stadium. They obviously need to add to the stadium environment, because we need to sell out as close as we can. The Miami Dolphins are a business...and we need to be succesful on the field, and on the books as a business. How this decision is the worst in franchise history...above hiring Cam Cameron, and Rick Speilman, and trading for AJ Feeley, and on..and on...is beyond me.

    Traditional, harcore ironclad football environments work great in places like Green Bay, KC..etc. Our fan base is what it is....Id much rather have our business side of the organization understand the market they are trying to appeal, and bring new blood and money into the stadium.

    Its also home to concerts, conventions, etc. where LandShark Stadium is a marketable name...

    Seriously. Big deal. Does it affect Penne's ability to throw the ball, or ronnie's ability to run through tackles... if no, I can care less about any business discussion.

    Further, if the owner is making money he is less likely to A) raise the price of tickets, B) get cheap with potential free agents.

    Dolphins could call their stadium Doo-Doo Brown, for all I care. I just want to win some games.

    I don't see the issue. Renaming the stadium is a marketing move that will bring more revenue to the team and more promotion....which hopefully leads to more fans, increased revenue and a better team. I think you guys are overreacting to a positive move.

    I too would have liked it if they had named it "Marino and Shula are Gods and the Dolphins will crush the Patsies with futuristic death rays and superhero powers Stadium" but it ain't happening. The name of the stadium is really irrelevant to what we are trying to accomplish out on the field.

    Well, even if you don't dislike the name, you can scarcely say this isn't a big deal. As pennphinfan pointed out, if the Dolphins name their stadium after a beer they will not schedule the Super Bowl here in the future. And THAT is a big deal.

    According to SportsBusiness Daily, the naming rights have a one year duration and the Phins are looking for a naming rights sponsor for the Superbowl and Probowl rights. There isn't an issue here. We aren't going to be stripped of future superbowls because of the name.

    I'm thinking more about this silly NFL rule. They won't allow a stadium named after a beer to use the name during the SB, but it's okay during the regular season? More over, the NFL doesn't see anything wrong with paying multi-million dollar contracts to convicted felons, thugs, drug users, cheaters, gun totiing gangsta wannabes, and all around ignorant jackasses?

    Way to stay consistent

    Not if you're a native Floridian, unlike Jimmy. He'd never been to FL until he was in his 20's. All he did was market the beach bum lifestyle.:shifty:

    But yeah, it's certainly not the worst decision in franchise history. Personally, I was happy with Dolphins Stadium. Landshark sounds like some off road vehicle that G.I. Joe uses or something. Whatever happens, I'm still a Dolphins fan. As long as we don't become the Miami Landsharks.:lol:
