    He's fishing for clicks and comments. His bosses don't care if the attention he draws is negative as long as he draws attention.

    100 million reasons to be thankful that we didn’t.

    Probably not, Brady will stop him short of the goal line and get him to play another season.

    amazing, but that’s probably one of my most memorable moments watching a football game (up there with wildcat running crazy over NE). Could have probably been prevented had NE not walked out their “Hail Mary preventer” Gronk. Lol too funny

    I Google that maybe once a year or so, it brings a smile to my face every time. You know what- we need a "Best Dolphins Plays" section of the website just for random clips like that. Or maybe we just make a thread in the mains that can be pinned.

    As if the world isn't burning right now, some people prioritize their attention in odd ways.

    I really thought the game had gone, so I took my Beagle for a walk, so I missed the play.

    I couldn’t believe it, when I returned and saw that we’d won.

    What is the world coming to, when someone receives death threats for saying something as innocuous as that.

    It really is very worrying.

    It's because people get their information from biased and hyperbolic sources. Hill very specifically referred to Tua's accuracy, but it was reported by literally every major outlet as if he said Tua was a better QB than Mahomes. He didn't say that, didn't imply it. He knew he was making a hot take and gave Tua props for a very specific strong point, but the headlines on every morning show was "Tyreek Hill said Tua is better than Patrick Mahomes". Why are they so focused on South Florida right now and why are they champing at the bit to find a reason to say Tua is bad at football?

    Anyway, if people would watch and pay attention, they'd realize that what he said was sensational, but not a shot at Mahomes. He did attack the Chiefs, but if their fans don't like it, they should be glad that he's gone.

    Armstead might be the biggest signing we've had in years. He might elevate the line by being a great leader for the young guys.

    Half of this list is players who played for us or are about to. Only one in a Dolphins uniform, though.

    Once upon a time, in a world called Reality…

    The word “fan” derives from the word “fanatic”. Merriam-Webster defines “fanatic” as;

    1. disapproving : a person exhibiting excessive enthusiasm and intense uncritical devotion toward some controversial matter (as in religion or politics)

    2. a person who is extremely enthusiastic about and devoted to some interest or activity

    The key adjectives in the explanation of this word are “excessive” and “extreme”. Now there have always been fans of particular teams who have held unwavering views regarding their preferred sports team or sports icon. Some viewpoints have turned into heated discussions. A comical example is in the My T Sharp barber shop in “Coming to America” where the characters are arguing who the greatest boxer of all time was but even in that comical portrayal, there’s no threat of violence.

    In reality, the only examples of sports fanaticism that come to mind are the acts of violence involving soccer. There have been numerous examples of brawls in the stands during matches as well as acts of violence against players on the losing side…ironically by the fans of that losing team no less.

    It’s a sad day in the world of football that the seeds of holliganism seen in international soccer are being sewn in the NFL when a respected elite NFL player is threatened with violence for merely giving his own opinion on another player based on his proven winning professional experience.

    It does indeed boggle the mind.

    Not to drag this off topic but football hooliganism is rarely to do with football and usually organised crime - varying gangs and other groups seeking to stir up trouble. They've had some problems with racist slurs, but I don't believe they have often gone violent, if ever. But again, that's just plain racism, not actually related to whether a player is any good.

    We live in such a vitriolic time right now. It's only worsened by the anonymity provided by the internet. It's the chance for random losers who are jealous of athletes' for their success to say things that they'd never say on the street. I once argued in a class that people are fake on the internet for saying things they'd never say in public. A classmate made the point that what I said proved that people are actually who they appear to be on the web because they say the things they think without concern for sanction or consequences. It was one of the few times I conceded a debate. Social media brings out the worst of us, but it doesn't make us fake. It's like alcohol: you don't get excused for what you said while drunk, because you only took the filter off and said what you were thinking anyway.

    saying what you are thinking in the moment is not the same as what you believe in.

    No, but it's a reflection of who you are. If you break up with a girlfriend and scream "I hope you and your family die", you're a bad person to her regardless of whether it was simply an emotional response that was made at the moment. In the words of Rachel Dawes (Batman Begins):

    I would argue that if it’s the first thing that comes to mind, then it is what you truly believe, otherwise it wouldn’t have been the first thing someone says

    Imagine saying a couple years ago that our roster would be considered about as good as the Chiefs.

    SO Cal
    I was at the last Rams/Raiders game in Anaheim and whole sections of the stadium were fighting. I've been to Chargers/Raiders games in San Diego where fights broke out in the line to get in AND in the stands. Almost every game, almost every year.
