    BDH, what I was thinking was the Hardcore Phins fans, you know.."us"...we went 1-15, this Band of Brothers never flinched, we stuck with our Phins, through the most difficult time in Dolphins history.

    We Brothers watched Tuna and Ireland take each and every choice, we watched Chad Pennington, the hated one, show up in Miami and then waited to see what Practice Squad moves we made.

    Our bonds of Brotherhood, should be celebrated...we stuck with our team when every other Board laughed at us.

    In the words of Coach Parcells...I guess they can't call you guys losers anymore...:angry::cry:

    We good BDH...we are winners now.:up:

    While the Olivier version is indeed legendary, it's what Branagh does with it that elevates his to the finest in recorded history. Every leaf, every detail of the host turns to gray before that delivery and the passion that Branagh brings to it. There's no better version, and for our 9-5 team of undrafted free agents and misfits there's no more fitting a speech.

    Yes, we are!!! :up::yes:

    I think all recent past Phin Coaches and those ex-team members are like the Germans...now that we are winners...they deserve to go away in peace and be recognized as nothing more or less than what we may have been if only for one thing...a new breed of LEADERS (IKE = Parcells; Bradley = Ireland; Patton = Sparano) that knew better, believed better, and felt a winning way existed to bring this franchise its deserved glory. :hi5:

    BDH, we fans have suffered much over the course of 8 seasons, "we" have stuck with our Dolphins, through thick and thin, we are Brothers in both suffering and success....

    This few, this lucky few...this Band of Brothers...soon the bandwagon will see other members join, and of course they will be filled with this and that, but for those Phin Brothers, the ones who cheered wildly when Greg Camarillo scored that TD in OverTime...we have a bond Bro.

    And any PhinFan who speaks, will hold their fanhood cheap, while any one of us Speaks of....:up:

    1944, the tide of the war is turning and Olivier taps right into that passion to go from the whipping dogs of years before and deliver righteous justice.

    Branagh's version (for me) is too quiet and emo for a battleline. Olivier's clearer cadence wins it for me as a speech for soldiers about to do battle. I also like the way that the camera pulls back at the end of Olivier's speech showing a large host of armoured men ready to hack the enemy limb from limb.

    Although for speeches from Henry V I prefer speech to the govenor of Harfleur (sadly bowdlerised) here:
    [ame]http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=OgaZ85nZuRA[/ame]

    and who can forget "Once more unto the breach" speech to his troops prior to the attempt on Harfleur

    I loved it. She just quietly told them what was going to happen to them. No yelling, no drama, just the facts.

    Sort of like we told ne. Just get in there and do it.
    What a thrill that game was. I just about broke my computer desk. :yes:

    Oh, WARNING. When sitting in a desk chair with wheels, be careful, very careful, it could be hazardous. :001_rolleyes:

    Oh, is that what she said?


    I thought it was more along the lines of:

    "Blood is going to flow, not our blood, your blood, please leave"?

    Wonderful HFH.
    I've got a feeling there's a touch of Sparano in that speech.

    We few, we happy few, once again saw the Dolphins Band of Brothers materialize.

    A CFL castoff, A unheralded Free Agent Signing, a Rookie QB...

    Came together, along with the Vets.


    The Dolphins Band o f Brothers has formed, players who not only make plays, but who love one another...

    The Band of Brothers HAS formed, the 09 Dophins are now a Shulesque Team, they know the stakes, they will fight so hard that Dave Wanny will blush at how they will fight, his teams will always fold

    Wanny is no Brother.
