    Are the phins not the least talked about team in the NFL, going on several years now?

    Most would make the argument that it happens when you are mediocre for so long. What about the Browns for example?

    They were far below mediocre for a VERY long time before Baker finally arrived and you would hear them on ESPN every other day talking about how they need to rebuild, get a qb, new coach, etc.

    I cannot remember the last time any of these analysts discussed the state of the dolphins, other than my man Peter Schrager, their issues and ideas on improving moving forward or really anything.

    Every time they win a game all they talk about is how the other team lost it and when they lose it’s still about the other team and how great they played. What gives?

    We have sucked bad for a long time.
    We need to earn some respect.
    And they do talk about us?
    You lost suh landry and pouncy. You’re bound to suck now.
    Admit it. When people say the dolphins suck.
    You can’t even argue.
    It kills me. Cause i love to argue.

    Watch the post game takes on all these espn shows and nfl network. Win or lose 98% of the discussion is regarding the other team. You make a good point, the only time they actually do talk about us is when **** hits the fan..like Timmons going AWOL, Landry and suh’s trash talking tweets, but never about the “state of the dolphins” so to speak.

    I genuinely like watching other good teams like the Saints, Chiefs, etc play and be entertained. It's hard to say watching the Dolphins is enjoyable football for anyone that's not a fan.

    I can understand the national disinterest in the team. I don't play fantasy football but I imagine our representation there is emblamatic of our woes.

    They were all making fun of us, the danettes..they posed the question if we were the most boring basically, and our only competition that came into the convo was the titans..

    You can be great and get talked about, or you can be historically bad and get talked about. But if you sit in the pocket of mediocrity there won't be any buzz at all. Most of the time when I watch an entire show to get the nugget of information about Miami's game, when it finally airs its nothing more then a discussion on how the game's outcome will effect our opponent.

    It makes it hard to watch any of the sports channels to be honest.

    I agree the browns get talked about because they went 0-16 they are a historic franchise that gets new #1 picks all the time #1 pick = huge amount of buzz. New coach = huge amount of buzz. We do neither and still mediocre as ever before. our team is boring we hardly make big plays. I mean Jesus Xavien had 2 picks in like 15 seconds and he picked off luck and still got no damn credit. I SAY THIS ALL THE TIME ITS CRINGE FULLY AWKWARD TO WATCH ANYONE SAY ANYTHING REMOTELY POSITIVE ABOUT MIAMI ON ANY SPORTS SHOW.

    Highlights from other teams can be exciting. I just hate when they're against Miami.

    I haven't been back since they changed the name from Landshark. Zero interest in attending a game. :confused2:

    as bad as we have been over the years, there's nothing to cut on the fans about at this point..

    Nah that’s not true, I’ve seen people get sick, seen people leave, seen people get burned bad, seen people sit on their *** battling the heat instead of having the energy to cheer..

    It was a debilitating stadium in several ways, to the fans and the players.

    Bullygate and Chris Foerester got the Phins a lot of (unwanted) air time.

    Yeah I mean from a national sense (I dont live in or around florida), the only interesting things from this franchise in the last few years has been negative. It's what happens to mediocre teams.

    I mean, what exactly do we think national media should care about? These "media hate us" type threads are really just a variant of "we get no respect". Why should we? Why should anyone care?

    We aren't really any "worse" off media wise than many other similarly mediocre teams. And like most of them, until we either start winning or weird **** happens, nobody cares.
