If a new owner bought the team and announced that he was moving it, he would be a walking dead man unless he had armed security available 24/7.

The City of Miami and the NFL wouldn't let him. You don't leave a major media market.

Yeah, and "The Utah Dolphins" doesn't make a whole lot of sense...

When I listen to Jazz, all I can hear is that bass riff..."dumb, dumb, dumb-dumb-dumb"

Fits Utah to a T. Wink

L.A. was without football, you are delusional if you think Miami is considered too big to fail.

LA is a garbage city that should fall into the ocean along with everyone in it. The citizens aren't die hard sports fans, every other major city would riot if their sports teams were taken away. LA lost both football teams and people shurgged and did cocaine.

Miami's reputation is pretty much identical to the rest of the country.

Is it me? Am I insane for wanting firings right now?
Yeah, you are. To what extent will firing everyone help? You still have to play the remaining games this year and you still have to get people to want to come to Miami next year. Making it a dumpster fire will not help. For as bad as it is now, it could be worse. A lot worse.

We have a lot of young players whose development is being screwed up due to bad coaching. Why wait the whole year to do the inevitable? We're not turning this around, we just ended a team's 20 game losing streak. 3-14 is seriously on the table so fire some or most of the coaches now and try to build some momentum into 2022.

Jackson and Kindley get worse in their 2nd year? That's not supposed to happen for O-Line guys. Better coaching can fix this, although with the O-Line they seemed destined to suck forever.

I don't know Edge. LA appears to me to be ravenous basketball and baseball town.

Flores should have acted on this weeks ago when it was obvious the offense was dysfunctional with 2x OCs and what appeared to be Charlie Frye calling the plays. Right after that stupid safety in the end zone against the Raiders, someone should have been fired, right there, right then - instead he ignored the critics and bad results to back the system (because he said he thought it worked in practice, despite the disaster during actual games against real opponents). In doing so, he has made a rod for his own back...

5 different O-Line formations in the first 5 weeks was ridiculous and he still has Jesse Davis at RT even though Hunt is better.

Oakland (twice), Baltimore, St. Louis (twice), Houston, Cleveland, and San Diego all failed to riot when their football teams were taken away.  And all those cities have fewer remaining sports teams than LA did when it lost the Rams and Raiders in 1995.

Every city you just mentioned is a shithole except for San Diego, and they're laid back due to the weather  Grin

Before you ask, yes, I think very little of most American cities but especially lists that include Bodymore, Murderland.
