50 moments in Miami Dolphins history

48 of 51

If the Dolphins are suffering a curse similar to that of the Chicago Cubs and Boston Red Sox they may not have to look much further than the changes to the stadium name. In 1987 the Miami Dolphins opened Joe Robbie Stadium named after the chief financer and Dolphins owner. After Wayne Huizenga took over the team, the selling of naming rights began. Since Wayne Huizenga has joined the team the stadium has gone through numerous name changes.

Originally sold to the Pro-Player apparel company, the stadium has been called Pro-Player Park, Pro-Player Stadium, Dolphins Stadium, Dolphin Stadium, Landshark Stadium, and Sun-Life Stadium. All negotiated under Wayne Huizenga. The Dolphins contract with Sun-Life will run out in 2016 so it will be up to Stephen Ross to find a new sponsor for the stadium. Although if he really wants to earn the respect of this fanbase, he may want to rename it Joe Robbie Stadium.
