I notice that in the media there is a bit of dislike for the Dolphins and also amongst fans of that time period. Some of my older relatives who aren't Fins fans said they hated the Dolphins. That leads me to my question... If we look at the 70s and 80s football.....were the Dolphins the Patriots of that era? Were Bobby and Danny Tom Brady and Don Shula Bill Bellichek? I'm asking because I really do hate the Patriots. I was just wondering, do a lot of people hate us for the same reasons, but just for a different time period? I wasn't around in the 70s and 80s so I don't know how we were viewed. Were we more Patriots or were we a more loved champion like the Giants or 49ers?
