I have been a dolphin fan a long time and i turn to sports stations and papers to find out out dolphins stuff. and ever since Parcells and his clowns came to miami the media always downplays Miami 's sucess and always comes up with ways to put the dolphins down . here are the excusses that media ,former players and coaches will give for the people we want to not to come here. #1 i never thought Peyton would go to Miami , because they are in the same division as the patriots and jets. REALLY FOLKS, REALLY? news flash we have always been in the afc east . I never heard this crap when Wanny , Jimmy and Shula were our coaches so why are we hearing this now ? #2 no matter what fans think of the media a teams fans dont want to be that team that everyone snickers at. players dont want to come tomiami and coaches because they dont want to face Brady , the jets, and Bills, are you kiddiing me. since when is it good for fin fans to sit back and pretend that Miami is a good orginazation. and pretend that all is well. #3 the media is currently talking about how every team except Miami that they could see Manning comming to. why are dolphin fans making excusses for not becoming a better team. the people defending Ireland need to takea closer look at how we are getting less and less repsect from everyone. what the media says shouldnt mean squat , but the truth is since the Tuna and his helpers have landed here we keep getting less and less repsect and Miami looks worse and worse. perception is everything because coaches and players dont want to go to a team that is out of favor with the public , how can any decent fin fan expect to win when we are creating more holes and losing out on good coaches and players. Please dont kid yourselves just because Fisher and MANNING WENT ELSEWHERE dosent mean they will be un successful. what i am saying is we are still in the afc east and we have always been in the afc east but more and more people are using the excuse we are in Brady's division. i am fed up with being looked down upon by near everyone and its not good for a team to keep getting bad press.
