Many fans tossed their season ticket renewal forms into the trash. Others used them as coasters or burned them in defiance. Go to a message board and read the hatred and “tired of losing” posts and threads. Then ask yourself. Are you one of them? If you are, it’s time for YOU Miami Dolphins fan to step up and send owner Stephen Ross another message. A message that simply states:
“I’m Still Here!”
Scream it loud and strong. No banner over the stadium to give the media something else to poke fun at. Get your rear-end out of your seats at home and park in the stadium come Sunday. The New York Jets are coming to town.
What a great way to show your support of what the team accomplished this past Sunday. What a great message to send to the owner, put a team on the field that plays like a team and win or lose, I will be in those seats. Put a product on the field that plays worse than high-school and I won’t. Fans are quick to walk away to make a negative statement when there is something they don’t like. Sunday provided the glimpse into what all fans should want and like.
So get off your box and send a positive message that you want this team to succeed.
The Dolphins enter the third week tied for first in the division. All four teams have won one and lost one. The Jets sit atop by virtue of their opening weekend win against the Bills. After a drubbing by the Steelers last night, the Jets are going to find themselves exposed. The Dolphins coming off a huge victory will need to build on their accomplishment. Create some momentum and start believing that what they accomplished on Sunday can be accomplished every Sunday. When any team tastes victory, it can become something they don’t want to give up. A young team that tastes that victory can be very dangerous for opponents.
The week ahead is the Jets game and let’s face some facts here. We hate the Jets. The Jets hate us. There are too many Jets fans coming to our home games. Perhaps the biggest one of them all, Tony Sparano.
Why is that so many of our fans refuse to support this team? Because the last three years have been horrid. Well one of the men responsible for that will make his first trip to Miami since being fired this past off-season. So send him the message as well, that you support the direction of this team without him.
For one game, this game. Get out your Dolphins gear, get on the phone, order your tickets, and go to this game. THIS GAME. I can’t say it enough, you stopped going to send a message loud and clear that losing is not acceptable. Now send a message that winning will bring you back. Yes, we won ONE game. It means nothing, but a positive message to ownership can have just as much impact as a negative one.
The choice is yours. You live in Miami. Send the right message.
FILL THE STADIUM!
