    Must be nice to be a celebrity and a fan. Those who can afford all the merchandise they want get it for free while the rest of us have to pay.

    Wouldn't you eat some money for the free publicity?

    I understand that, and eat a lot for free advertising in my business, but I think more goodwill towards normal fans would also bring tons of free publicity. Especially in this day and age of Twitter and getting the word easily out to the masses.

    Why couldn't they have reached an agreement on payment? It's not like one could expect something like "@danieltosh Thanks for the PayPal payment of $278.21 your new wardrobe is now on the way!"

    Google is your friend.

    He is a comedian and has a show on Comedy Central. He is a long suffering Dolphins fan as well.

    If I was in charge of fan experience I would try to get passed something that randomly selects 5-10 seats per home game, the person in seat wins a meet and greet with their fav fins player and an autographed jersey from that player.

    I work at a bank. You know who gets their fees refunded for them? $25 for checks? The people with 400k in their accounts. You know who doesnt? The single mom living paycheck to paycheck.

    Its life. Life isnt fair.

    Of course! The Dolphins will love Tosh tweeting pictures of their new uniforms/hats/logo to his 500k+ followers.

    Why does Tosh get free merch?

    [​IMG]

    Because he does things like this on his wildly popular television show.

    He'd never have to pay for anything if I was in charge.

    I might get a photocopy of the team out of all this, if I am lucky.

    It will probably have the old logo though. :sad:

    The closest I ever got to getting any "free" team gear, is the 20 bucks I spent on two game worn jerseys, and 7 bucks for game used pants, at the team's garage sale.

    I believe Daniel Tosh is getting his own late night talk show too. I think Tosh.0 is finished after this year, or something like that.

    I don't care if the guy is a Phins fan and has more Twitter followed than ****ing Jesus. He's an unfunny hack.

    It's just another example of one of the main facts of life.

    Why do the rich stay rich? They never pay for anything.

    By the same token, they're expected to spend and tip obscenely. If they're not leaving a $50 tip on a $10 sandwich, they're awful people.

    The Dolphins are getting much more out of this than Tosh is. Gotta look at it from a business perspective. Heck he's promoted them unsolicited for years on his show. They've spent what, a couple hundred in merch and whatever it cost to fly the cheerleaders out that time (though Comedy Central likely paid for much of that)?

    The rich that stay rich do so because they're smart with their money. Pro athletes enjoy the same privileges yet the vast majority of them are broke shortly after their careers end.

    When was the last time we have a draft with this many Jonathans who used various less common spellings like Johnthan, Johnathan, etc? Or two named Cornelius, but one spells it as Cornellius? I've never seen it with two l's before. Or when has there been a draft with this many named Williams? When has there been two with the name Ezekiel and one goes by Ziggy and the other one goes by Zeke? :unsure:

    I got a brand new free Dolphins parka once. A friend used to have a commercial janitorial service and one of the businesses he cleaned at night sold sports apparel. The owner gave him two new Reebok Dolphins parkas with the pre 1997 logo. So, he gave one to me. :)

    Comedy Central does that a lot. Throws a ton of money at otherwise decent comedians to do TV shows and the end result tends to suck.
