With the firing of Gase, I'm just in a bad place as a fan.

I can't see any situation where we hire someone who isn't cut from the same mold.  So, I liked Gase and wanted to keep him.  I can get firing him to move in a bold new direction, but I know we're not doing that.

The idea of starting a rebuild again is brutal.

Well you have approximately 250 days to get excited for the next Dolphins regular season game.

Dave,

Don't get demotivated.  We really only need to re-tool a couple areas.  Gase should have been able to do more with what he had at least offensively.

I was pissed to begin with because it just seemed another same old same old crap. Now I'm kind of in a wait and see mode. Zero expectations for next season with a very tough schedule and no idea if we will even have the talent level, as bad as it was, we had this year on the team.

This thread doesn't need to be in anti-Fins.  It's real talk about a team not pulling it's collective s-t together in decades. 

My daughter asked me a couple days ago if Miami has ever won a SB.  I told her how they did, but it was when I was very little.  I added how they haven't even been in one since I was a teenager.  I'm 48.  If you're scoring at home - the last time Miami went to a Super Bowl was:
  • 33 years
  • 11 months
(18 days, but who's counting?)

Anyone who is 30 - 40 (or older) remembers how laughable, literally, it would be to think of New England, New Orleans, Tampa Bay being in the playoffs.  Yet, all have won Super Bowls. Miami, meanwhile, can't get the car out of reverse.

The Saints and Bucs have won Super Bowls.  Miami hasn't been BACK in 33 years.

Yeah, it's pretty hard being a fan.

No kidding prior to 1985 NE had won exactly one play off game and had only one the division twice.

When you find the next Don Shula or Bill Belichick, let me know. Those types of guys come along once in a generation.

I donít know, but if you find that guy donít be afraid to hire him even if he is under contract with another team. Both Mia and NE had to forfeit a 1st round pick for tampering and in both cases the best possible use of a pick.

I read an article today that said 80% of season tickets holders have committed to renewing. I was surprised given the news we wouldn't be very good. 

The remarkable resiliency of Miami Dolphins fans

A silver lining for Dolphins fans bracing for a rough 2019:


For the most part they will not be asked to shell out more for tickets.

While the price of some tickets will go up this coming season, most seats will stay flat or even decrease this coming year.

Season-ticket holders got that news in October when renewal requests went out.

In the five months since, more than 80 percent have decided to renew, a testament to the power of the NFL and the loyalty of Dolphins fans.

The organization has been upfront about its plans to rebuild this season, a process that even new coach Brian Flores acknowledged could be painful.

But the likelihood of a 19th consecutive season without a playoff win did not scare off the vast majority of the teamís season ticket base. The teamís renewal rate is particularly impressive, given the lack of obvious big draws on Miamiís home schedule in 2019. Beyond the three divisional teams, the Dolphins will host the Ravens, Bengals, Eagles, Redskins and Chargers.

lat pricing likely means the Dolphins will remain one of the NFLís best values. They had the leagueís 10th-cheapest ticket in the league in 2018 (an average of $86.36) and the most affordable ticket in the AFC East, according to Statista.com.

The Dolphins ranked 20th in total attendance last year (65,560), but were third in capacity percentage (101.2).

The team has had no trouble filling Hard Rock Stadium since the half billion-dollar renovations, and the buildingís total revenue ó driven mostly by Dolphins games, soccer matches, mega concerts and rent from the University of Miami ó was up 39.7 percent in the fiscal year that ended on March 31.


ďThe Miami Dolphins maintain a stable fan and corporate base and have played in Miami since 1966,Ē Fitch Ratings wrote in its annual credit assessment of Hard Rock Stadium. ďRecent economic uncertainty and team performance have caused attendance and premium seating renewals to be uneven, though trending favorably in recent seasons.Ē

I've never seen the Dolphins in the Super bowl. The first Super bowl I watched was Super bowl XX one year after the Dolphins' last appearance. Naturally I cheered for Da Bears in Super bowl XX.

Talk about bad timing to become a Dolphins fan.  The year after Mia last SB appearance and the year that NE went to its first of 11 (and counting). Should have picked the local team.
