Mike Dee left the Miami Dolphins to return to his Major League Baseball roots.  The man who failed to bring fans back to an empty stadium was out of his league.  His return last month to the San Diego Padres seemed to be a smart move on his part.  Apparently the Dolphins felt that the man he was replacing was the right fit for the job Mike Dee had just left.   Today, officially, the Miami Dolphins announced that Tom Garfinkel will become the teams new CEO.

The job in Miami will be Garfinkel’s first in the NFL and while he will not have any say in team matters he will oversee the financial issues of both the team and the stadium…not including player contracts.

In addition to the announcement Dolphins owner Stephen Ross announced there would be “No Blackouts” for the 2013 season.  Last year Ross opted to not buy out the remaining tickets to the final two games.  This year he hopes that his off-season spending will turn empty seats into screaming fans.  According to reports season ticket sales are still lukewarm.

    Stuff like this is what makes you look stupid.
