There are selfish reasons for everything we do in life and I won’t lie and say I have none because that would indeed be a lie. Through this site I have met a lot of people, players, executives, and even readers who I consider friends. Friends that I would not have otherwise met in my life.
The opportunity to go to Miami once a year and meet with players and fellow web heads is an important reason why I continue to do this because I’m not looking to make a jump to a Yahoo or ESPN, or other major network with more exposure. I do this because it’s fun.
Most of all however I do this for those of you who voluntarily read us everyday. I’m not a social media person and many of our readers are not either. For those of you who have been here from the start I can never thank you enough. For those that are still finding their way to the site I hope we can keep you entertained enough to come back.
We have no professional writers here. It surely wouldn’t be me if we did. Like you we are all passionate fans who tend to take a fans approach to our writing. I have long since moved on from trying to break the news but instead report it when it is correct or at the very least a rumor that has some substantial possibility.
To all of you a simple thank you. We have played fantasy football together and some of you have beaten me and others I have beaten. We have donated to cancer drives and other charities and we have spoken on the various radio shows that I have hosted in the last decade. And still some of you I have met in person and had the privilege of shaking your hands…even some of you who promised to punch me in the face.
We disagree, we agree, but in the end we are all Dolphins fans who simply want to see the team succeed.
10 years is a long time but it’s never that long when it’s something you love and enjoy. Thank you for making the site what it is. Thanks to all the other sites who have voted for us over the years and drove me to do better each year.
Thank you to the Dolphins for allowing me to become in some way a part of their family and allow me access to things I could only dream of.
Most of all thanks to all of you. It’s because of you that I push myself to do more and I value your opinion and your criticism. Thank you and here’s is to 10 more (which I’m sure some of you are going to hate)
