    I ust started growing broccoli sprouts, i’m on day 3, suppose to be super healthy. they are blooming

  2. ocalarob says:

    this is what i use

  3. Mike E. says:

    LOL @ broccoli and friends

  4. Mike E. says:

    I still can’t believe that Steve Ross spoke to Watson. What a monumental jackass!!!!

    • ocalarob says:

      I can, I’m going to stop bashing tua and let the season play out, but we have very crappy play from the QB position IMO and i believe that’s the whole reason behind our lack of success in all depts.

      • Mike E. says:

        You can’t have it both ways. Either he gets credit for everything or you can’t blame him for everything, you have to pick one way to go.

  5. Mike E. says:

    Rob – Tell you what . . . Fitz was 4-3 with this team last season, and it’s pretty obvious last year’s team was much better than this year’s. Tua was 6-3 last year, same team. Your assumption just doesn’t add up.

    • ocalarob says:

      tua wasn’t the reason for winning those games, it was our d and the turnover ratio, we were on a roll. that soon diminished with the raiders denver then buffalo when we had to rely on tua, fitz bailed us out of the raiders game.
      it’s quite obvious tua’s problems, just look at his stats, he barely breaks 200 yards against a quality team, 90 percent of his games have sub par yardage. the reason is simple, lack of arm strength, opposing ds crunch the field, it affects the entire team.

      • Mike E. says:

        You can’t have it both ways. Either he gets credit for everything or you can’t blame him for everything, you have to pick one way to go. Accidentally posted this as a reply to the wrong comment above.

      • ocalarob says:

        you want credit? i give him credit for beating the cardinals last year, his best game as a pro. i want to see more of that, the cards just plated the wrong d on him, they spread out and gave him deep respect, that is no longer happening, teams now know how to play him and its working for them.

    To each their own. We do restaurant food, but that might be about why my beer belly is about more than beer. 🙂

    been doing that for years, i’ve changed in the last year or so, it was a hard change, but now i can’t go back, i cook my chicken and steak in an air fryer and get the boil in a bag veggies and nuke them, very easy, if i get hungry at night i just pop in a bag of broccoli, 6 mins lots of salt.

    at least i have the miami heat

    He is an amateur playing and pretending to be a professional owner

  9. ocalarob says:

    on offense we play the width of the field but not the depth, we are not making opposing ds cover the entire field, all tua does is throw short passes, i watched a video and every rec is within 10 yards of the los looking to make a catch, we don’t stretch the field and that is the issue imo.
    our rbs have no room to run due to the overloaded box

  10. stangerx says:

    Bad News from the USATODAY power rankings:

    “30. Dolphins (29): They’ve got the worst defense in the league and have run the ball fewer than anyone else. So why do we keep asking Brian Flores about QB Tua Tagovailoa? Maybe it’s time to broker a trade for Khalil Mack … or at least Larry Csonka.”

    Good news:

    “31. Texans (32): There might finally be blessed clarity on Houston’s quarterback conundrum this week … meaning the potential return of Tyrod Taylor, of course.”

  11. Ross is incredibly immoral and amateurish, SMH
    but at least he didnt compound his mistakes by taking watson

    thanks for giving Tua reassurance by waiting til the final hour ross, hopefully Ross final hour comes soon
    reminds me when he went to California and left Sparano hanging.

    he is a boy among Men in NFL owners, jets fans make crummy Dolphin owners

    • olddolphan says:

      DAVID; Just after Ross took control of this franchise he scheduled a meeting with Brian Bilick, who, previously, had coached the Ravens. Bilick thought he had a real shot at getting the Dolphins’ HC job. But, according to Bilick, the “interview” turned into a big Ross rant about the Ravens OT loss to Miami the prior season (which turned out to be Miami’s only win in a 1-15 season. “I had to pay Huizenga about one million dollars more for the franchise because YOU lost to Miami.” The former Ravens’ head coach was incredulous! Ross just wanted to tear into Bilick for several minutes. NO job offer was ever made because Ross had already decided on someone else for the job (Sparano??)–
      The interviewer asked Bilick “Is it true you called Ross an “ASSHOLE” as you walked out the door?”

      Bilick responded “No comment. It was personal.” But I’ll bet you the former Ravens coach won’t be attending Ross’s funeral.

  12. olddolphan says:

    HERD: I’m a bit surprised that Marshall is a 1 and 1/2 point underdog at FAU this Saturday. The Owls were VERY LUCKY to beat UTEP last week. The game is on CBS Sports Network at 6:00 PM.

    NO FAIR doing the laundry just before kickoff!!

    “Obviously he did it and he got away with it, and at one point he even told Nicole, ‘I’ll kill you and get away with it because I’m O.J. Simpson.”

  14. mf13ss says:

    I should have known that a leopard never changes its spots, in reference to Steve Ross. I seriously tried to give him a fair shake after bashing him for years alongside Old Dolfan and Gigi. Should have known better, SMH.

    How is Tua to respond to this, knowing that our idiot owner tried to get Deshaun Watson to replace him… ya know, the guy with all of these sexual allegations against him? The NFL is going to tar and feather him, even IF he escapes justice in court (he won’t).

    How funkin’ STUPID could Steve Ross be to DO this to Tua, our team, and our fans?

    The clown owner needs to sell the damn team before he funks it up even more. This one really stings, especially now that Tua has bounced back very well after his broken ribs (which I guarantee still hurt him right now).


    • Tim Knight says:

      I know I can’t spend time ranking on Ross and calling for him to sell the team because that’s an exercise in futility. I’m more annoyed with Grier and Flores and the product on the field.

      I wouldn’t be against Tua having a sit down with all of them and saying hey if you’re not confident in me, maybe you can trade me to a team that wants me. He probably wont do that but I wouldn’t care if he did. He doesn’t deserve this nonsense he’s been put through basically since he’s been here.

      • mf13ss says:

        Right on, man! I agree, but what happens when we draft a new shiny toy under the Steve Ross circus, and he does the EXACT same thing?

        I realize we can’t force Ross to sell, but he’s the shit stain that just doesn’t wash out. Time to change the poopy pants.

      • Tim Knight says:

        We can’t control any of that. I don’t like seeing good people treated like shit though.

  15. Randy says:

    I was not a fan of drafting Tua. He’s just not my sort of QB, but he’s our QB now. I think a fair evaluation of him has to start with the reality that he still hasn’t even started a full season. He is still a rookie in terms of games played. Tua is a grinder. He is not a natural athlete that just wows you with his arm or legs or athleticism in general. He’s not a Wilson. He’s more of a Brees. He can make plays for you because of his grittiness and his brain….not because of a canon for an arm or his legs. Bashing him for what he isn’t without evaluating what he is; isn’t really helpful at all.
    Tua is fast enough. He’s got a strong enough arm. Neither are great but good enough. Expecting him to throw 60 yard bombs all day or run around like Wilson is simply pissing up the wrong tree. Where he seems to excel is his preparedness, he’s studious, he seems to read defenses well, and he plays hard. I’d still rather have a Tom Brady-type QB, but that doesn’t mean Tua can’t be successful in the NFL. He needs to be evaluated this season and then you make your decision and roll with it.

  16. mf13ss says:

    Personal theory: we didn’t dispatch any of our big-name players (such as Tua, DeVante, X, Byron, etc) because we’re going to need them in order to make the trade for Deshaun Watson next year.

    • mf13ss says:

      Let’s face it, we’re going to be hearing about Deshaun to Miami for the foreseeable future.

      • Tim Knight says:

        I’m just glad it can simmer down this year.

      • mf13ss says:

        I don’t know about that, Bro. I think we’re going to continue to hear about ‘when we get Deshaun’ after every single game we play for the rest of this season, win or lose. The media has been relentless thus far, and I don’t see it changing any time soon.

      • manitobafinfan says:

        Yeah , the media that’s it 🤔

      • manitobafinfan says:

        Pardon the misplaced comma(s)

    • olddolphan says:

      MF13; By this time next year Watson will have been hit with multiple indictments. His passport, if he has one, will be confiscated. Assuming he gets bail, he’ll be required to be available for whatever hearings or trials may be forthcoming. So his availablility for games outside the state of Texas may be “IFFY.”
      The shit storm of negative publicity likely will force the commissioner of the NFL to place Watson on some sort of restricted list. EVEN Steve Ross would be reluctant to deal for a guy accused of SO MANY felonies.

      Or would he??

      • mf13ss says:

        Well, Steve Ross has shown that he wants Watson BADLY. Knowing Ross, he’ll deal for Watson anyway, and wait on Watson to get off the commish’s exemption list over time.

  17. mf13ss says:

    Tim Knight says:
    November 2, 2021 at 8:17 pm
    We can’t control any of that. I don’t like seeing good people treated like shit though.
    Yup, and I’m 100% with ya.

  18. olddolphan says:

    HERD: WHAT would you think if Ross went ahead and tried to acquire Watson anyway??

  19. Tim Knight says:

    M13, but there will be no trade rumors anymore this year because it can’t happen. That’s why I said it will simmer down. I didn’t say people won’t still bring it up in some way, but the media can’t put out their trade rumors anymore this season.

  20. mf13ss says:

    Old Dolfan,

    If you could see all of the Dolphins talk on Twitter… Steve Ross is all but being burned in effigy. Our fans are PISSED at Steve Ross, BIG TIME!!! And RIGHTFULLY so!!!

  21. olddolphan says:

    WE DON’T DO Twitter or Facebook in this house. One bad incident for Mrs. OD was more than enough.

  22. Tim Knight says:

    As for the Henry Ruggs situation which is very sad because someone lost their life, the NFL offers every player a card with a phone# to call for a car on their dime. There is no excuse for any player to drive while intoxicated.

  23. herdfan says:

    OD: I saw that the Herd’s opponent this week is FAU. We’ve not had a great year, not awful but not great. New head coach this year. I’ll be watching on Saturday.

    As for Ross, I am pissed. I’ve told myself all the Watson talk is just the damn media doing what they do. Now I have to admit they were right. Really disappointing.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Agreed. Why did Ross want to talk with Watson? He gave Grier full power of football operations and then decided he needed to get involved. So maybe he doesn’t have full confidence in Grier to handle it. This organization is a total mess right now.

  24. Ken says:

    The way I figure it if Grier and or Flores are fired there is no way we trade for Watson in the off season. Whoever we bring in to be the GM and or HC will want to remake the roster in their own way. They will not want to deplete all their draft capital to land a QB when there is going to be a major roster churn going on. If Grier and are Flores are still here it is still not likely to trade for Watson because Tua was their guy but they may feel pressured to win now and pull off what I think would be a disastrous trade

  25. olddolphan says:

    HERD: I’m hoping Women’s rights activists have a demonstration this Sunday at the “TOILET BOWL” featuring the NFL’s two worst franchises right now, the Fins and the Texans. Look for Ross’s “security people” to try to run off these demonstrators. If they succeed, a couple of them should be signed-up for the Dolphins’ defense.
    I’m going to sit down and draft a short message to Ross’s ticket agent concerning WHY, after over 50 years as a dedicated Fins Fan, I am NOT renewing my season tickets. I am going to ask her TO RECORD THIS MESSAGE and send it to Ross’s representatives. Ross’s pursuit of a serial sex pervert is the LOWEST POINT IN THE HISTORY OF THE FRANCHISE. And, no, Rob, I’m NOT going to assume Watson is innocent until proven guilty. History will prove me right on this one!

    • herdfan says:

      I have to say, I wasn’t convinced all these massage therapists didn’t know what they were signing up for. Even if they did, it’s still not a great look for the face of your franchise. Settling all these claims doesn’t clean up his image.

      • olddolphan says:

        HERD; I USED to think Robert Krapp was the most offensive, disgusting, owner in the National Football League. But that little “handshake” he had with that oriental “massage therapist” pales by comparison to STEVE ROSS’S PURSUIT OF A SERIAL SEX PERVERT!!

        I REPEAT. ROSS’S PURSUIT of Watson is the low point in the history of this franchise. Can you imagine ANY worthwhile coach, or player, wanting to get involved with this unmitigated disaster??

        ROSS has destroyed this franchise. And it will be MANY, MANY, YEARS before the stink of this affair blows away.

  26. The Flying Pig says:

    The attorney for Watson made a statement that they are nowhere close to settlement and that the Texans were trying to seek the Dolphins on something that wasn’t going to happen

  27. wyoming85 says:

    What Number did we give Watson???????????????????

    • The Flying Pig says:

      That lawyer sounds like he takes lesson from grammar from yoda

      But what I think he means is that watsons lawyers wanted lower compensation and the Dolphins were willing to pay off these women….I don’t know…it’s really confusing

      He is suggesting that the Dolphins were somehow pushing for settlement and that settlement wasn’t even close

      He actually says some women wanted more compensation and others didn’t like the NDA

    • olddolphan says:

      I’d give him 50.

      As in “50 years to Life.”

    • son of a son of a shula says:


  28. Mike E. says:

    Apparently Steve Ross’s phone number

  29. wyoming85 says:

    What? You mean there was no trade?
    Must have been all bullshit after all!

    And yet I see some of you going off on some more rumors.

    Maybe there was a lesson in there somewhere????????????

  30. ocalarob says:

    Flores and Greir will definitely get a 4th season, no way Ross fires them.

    • Tim Knight says:

      You’re probably right. Maybe Grier and Flores needed some pressure because they really haven’t had any the first two seasons – they got 3 offseasons and 2+ seasons to turn the team over and coach them up. That has a bad look right now. But if the team doesn’t get it corrected next season it all starts over again.

  31. Tim Knight says:

    Like Herd said, regardless of what the facts are and all of these reports and/or rumors, it’s not a good look for the Miami Dolphins franchise. Having a bad season, Tua being caught in the middle of it, Watson’s character etc. None of it is good.

  32. The Flying Pig says:

    I’m really not sure I’ll be watching next year

    • Tim Knight says:

      That’s how bad it is. I know a few fans that feel the same way, me included. I’ll be back when you get your shit together. I don’t want to spend my time on the nonsense.

    • CavalierKong says:

      I’m struggling to figure out how I can stay engaged with this current team and this ridiculously mismanaged crap, but I’m starting to agree with the growing consensus that Ross is ultimately the biggest problem.

  33. olddolphan says:

    Pardon me while I go and throw up!
    I’m OUT!!

  34. mf13ss says:

    Having read all of the above posts, I think most of us concur: Steve Ross has sunk this franchise to a new low.

  35. mf13ss says:

    I don’t even know what to do at this point. I will ALWAYS be a Miami Dolphins fan, but I’m not willing to support this team — as constituted in the FO and ownership — any longer.

    • mf13ss says:

      Steve Ross created a beaurocracy, and now we reap what he’s sowed. It became so bad, that he felt HE needed to personally get involved. Another case of too many chiefs and not enough Indians.

      Man… it’s bad right now. SMMFH

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Well we can’t really control who the owner is – so time will tell

      I think we are just dealing with the reality that ownership is bad

      If I were a cowboys fan I would hate Jerry Jones, and I think some cowboys fans balance that

      So maybe we can balance being a fan while recognizing the owner is a moron

      Right now the on the field product is pretty painful to watch too

  36. mf13ss says:

    Inevitably, Tua will ask for a trade after this season… and I hope he states that it will NOT be to the Houston Texans. Don’t know if he has that power, and if not, I can see him asking for his outright release.

  37. mf13ss says:

    Does Steve Ross realize how little attendance he gets at home games this year? Cut in half for next year after his latest debacle.

  38. wyoming85 says:

    Hey did you New Jersey boys vote today?

  39. Ken says:

    Now that this is becoming public it will make it very hard for us to make a play for Watson in the future. The optics are already horrible and would look even worse if we should pay off the plaintiffs and pull off a trade. We would be a pariah

    • mf13ss says:

      Even if that is so (I don’t doubt ya, man), we just alienated Tua!

      • Ken says:

        Maybe but players know this is a business and they can be traded. It’s up to be professional about it and deal no matter how distasteful it may seem. Tua seems like he has the makeup to deal with that but only time will tell

  40. Tim Knight says:

    The ultimate goal of any sports franchise is to put out a competitive team that can compete for championships and entertain the fans. Once that fails, the media and fans start turning over every leaf and rock for scapegoats. If the team is playing well even with some nonsense around them, it will get overlooked. The Miami Dolphins are failing in all phases.

    That ultimately starts with Stephen Ross. The NFL business is not the same as the big real estate business. It’s more personal and emotional. He’s allowing bad vibes to spread throughout the football team which is key to the entire goal. Fans are your investors.

  41. Tim Knight says:

    Tua has no power where he gets traded – he doesn’t have that kind of contract, no rookie does.

    • mf13ss says:


      mf13ss says:
      November 2, 2021 at 10:12 pm
      And we know none of that can or will happen, so Steve Ross now owns Tua as a mere pawn. SMMFH

      • Tim Knight says:

        That’s no different than a lot of players. The Broncos just traded Von Miller and he had no choice where he goes even though he’s going to a good situation.

  42. CavalierKong says:

    Braves hit that groove and rode it all the way. Pretty unlikely champs, but they beat 3 really good teams to get there.

  43. olddolphan says:

    The Braves victory pleases me greatly. Brings back memories of watching Hank Aaron taking batting practice during spring training in West Palm Beach.

    Hank Aaron, may you rest in peace.

    Wow how shocking!

    If you’re interested in seeing the Dolphins win a Super Bowl in the near future, invest in a playstation.

  46. sb7mvp says:

    So it looks like the deep state couldn’t control the state of Virginia.

  47. herdfan says:

    The thing is, I don’t care if all the allegations are totally true or not. I still don’t want him. Any player who thinks they get to pick the coach, pick the GM….that’s a diva in my book. Hell no to that. The rest of it just makes it even more ridiculous to consider. 🤯

  48. wyoming85 says:

  49. wyoming85 says:

    So after months of bitching about the Dolphins organization not speaking about Watson.
    Grier comes out and speaks .

    Everyone screams liar????????

    • CavalierKong says:

      Why would we scream liar? He admitted they were exploring the trade. So I guess not all BS, huh?

      Is this your way of mitigating that fact you were completely wrong as recently as 12 hours ago?

      Everyone knew the team was looking at the trade (well, everyone that can put 2 and 2 together and get 4). We all knew it was affecting our current QB and probably the whole damned team. Charlie Fry admitted he had to change Tua’s routine because of the distraction. I’m glad they finally admitted it. They’re idiots for looing at trading for an accused sex offender with 22 law suits pending when they have a QB they just drafted.

  50. wyoming85 says:

    Later maybe!

      I’m not going to wait to the end of the season or for two more games. This team is awful. I’m done with them. Until Grier is gone I will not watch another game or give a fuck.

    • sb7mvp says:

      I use my PS2.

      • CavalierKong says:

        That’s awesome you have a ps2 that still works. I think it’s the best gaming machine ever made, and it’s the reason I’m a playstation fan.

    A long time acquaintance of mine, a former Dolphins fan it seems, walked up to me wearing a chargers jersey today. I pointed to his #10 and said WTF? How long you gonna keep up this schtick? He was like nope, not a schtick Fuck the Dolphins.

    I was like dude you’ve been a Dolphins fan for 30 years how can you do that?
    “I’ve had enough….” (then we belabored all the mistakes over the last 20 years)

    I don’t think I could switch like that I would just have to quit NFL all together
    This is really funny to me considering the Chargers and their never ending failures to win a Super Bowl. At least switch to a team that’s won something in the last 40 years.

    • stangerx says:

      Funny how when people switch teams they never switch to one that is out of the playoff hunt. And assume he knows where the Chargers play.

  55. herdfan says:

    Good grief, Ruggs was going over 150mph? I hate to wish anyone dead, but if that’s true, it should have been him instead of the other person. No excuse for that.

        I hope he ends up in prison for a long time. It’s where he belongs.

      • stangerx says:

        I agree, but the question to me is how long. Drove drunk a lot of times in my teens and early 20’s. Can say “wasn’t a big deal then” (and it wasn’t), but could have hurt someone even if never did. Never that fast….. but then wasn’t driving that car either.

      • bookman11 says:

        The sentence range is 2-20 years for what they are apparently charging him with.

    • CavalierKong says:

      Wow, that’s crazy. Did he kill a passenger or another driver?

      • stangerx says:

        “Henry Ruggs III was driving 156 mph with a blood-alcohol content twice Nevada’s legal limit before his car slammed into the rear of a vehicle that burned, killing a 23-year-old woman,” who was the driver of the other car.

      • CavalierKong says:

        Just wow. I have a 23 yo daughter.

  56. Krishna says:

    Wow….I may never have to worry about being a Dolphin fan again….lol.

    Been in CR, Tamarindo specifically, since Sunday on the beach. Had to do a little work after my morning walk on the beach and thought I’d catch up on Dolphin blog news, too.

    Now watching the rain and surfers and the tide has definitely come way in since this morning. These surfers are nuts. At low tide this morning you could see the lava beds on the beach and walk among them. Now, with higher tide the lava beds can’t be seen and these surfers our out there, falling and jumping off their boards. That’s fucking crazy.

    Found Chili Guaro and Guaro Sours to be the local rum drink…..oh my. It’s about that time.

    Pura vida!!!!

    • CavalierKong says:

      Sounds like paradise, Krishna. I’m jealous, lol.

      • Krishna says:

        It really is…’s amazing. Next, is La Fortuna in the rain forest and “mountains” for zip lines and hot springs, then, San Ramon for hiking and whatever, then probably back to coast to wind up a 3 week adventure. Planning for the next phase of life and this might be it.

      • stangerx says:

        Not necessarily where you are but have read stories about ex-pat US retirement communities in Costa Rico. Sounded like life could be a whole lot worse and more expensive. Least one I read said they had a bar that showed NFL games. So wouldn’t have to hand in your NFL fan card.

      • Krishna says:

        I did see the tail end of the WS last night at the Resort I’m at. So, there are sports. Soccer is the biggest. Not sure if they have the NFL ticket….LOL.

        If there’s a reason to walk away from the Dolphins, especially this shitshow, this would be the place…..

        I know that resort
        It’s very nice

        The beach is also amazing
        Very flat

        Easy to surf bc there are persistent small waves all day

        Make sure you get the various seafood carpaccios at any of the local restaurants – they are delicious

        Thank you, Piggy, will do!

        Funny, lot of “American” type food….probably need to stop in at more LOCAL places during my adventure….I want authentic, but…. will probably cut loose soon. Got the local drink, so far…lol.

    Ruggs got one call from Prison. He called Ross

    • The Flying Pig says:


    • stangerx says:

      Any thoughts on when that call will come? I’m thinking 4 or 5 years, And he’s only 22. Will an issue down the road, even if maybe 50/50 Ross will be around/owner of the Phins.

      • Ken says:

        Given the reported facts Ruggs will be going away for vehicular manslaughter. He has played his last down of professional football

      • stangerx says:

        I’ll trust you on that. Done exactly one criminal case is my life. Got a buddy off for marijuana possession cause numb nuts had left a roach in an empty packet of of cigs in his car. He was lucky it was on the passenger’s side.

      • CavalierKong says:

        I read a report that he’ll get 2-20 years for the vehicular and 1-6 for the reckless driving, and Nevada has a law that says DUI resulting in death- no parole. So 3 to 26 years with no parole on the majority of the time. He’s got money, so he’ll probably get something stupid like 5-7.

      • stangerx says:

        I normally scoff at maximum penalties. For instance, classification of a Class One misdemeanor in Virginia (where I practiced) is up to one year in prison. Normally ends up in a month or less or a couple weekends picking up highway trash. But for sure in this case 150+ MPH is begging for a maximum.

  63. The Flying Pig says:


    I have a funny story from my time in Tamarindo that highlights my general social dysfunction

    I don’t know if the dance/club bar is still across the street form the resort, but when I was there there was a restaurant that converted to a open air dance space in the evening

    Really fun space. All the tourists went there. They played a lot of salsa dancing

    And if you don’t mind me tooting my own snout, I will tell you I have some moves

    And it was super easy to ask a lady to dance
    Literally you just hold your hand out in front of them inviting them for a dance
    So it was really a fun time

    But I messed it up

    One day I went snorkling in the daytime. But I had a really bad sunburn on my bald head to the extent that when I went it the saltwater my head stung. So the guy who ran the snorkeling adventure who was bald as well had a solution and lent me this thing for my head – was great bc I enjoyed the snorkeling and say a bunch of fish and manta rays and all kind of stuff. So super cool guy

    Anyway later that night I went to the salsa club
    I was shaking my trotters and such

    And it was crowded that night

    All the sudden this big hairy man hand was presented to my face. I was stunned! I like women dude – why is this guy asking me to dance. I must have felt so awkward I didn’t take the time to evaluate my surroundings

    So I was like “no man, I like women, I’m not interested”
    And I was like really rude – not like angry and fighting pose or anything, but not my usual smiling jovial self

    So the hand pushes through the crowd so I can see the person it is attached to

    And the guy says “no…I don’t want to dance. How’s your head?”

    And I was like “ohhhhhhhhh….it’s the snorkeling guy….shit….Eh…thanks for the thing for my head….eh…sorry…”

    He stopped short of telling me to fuck off before he walked away. Apparently he was just trying to shake my hand, not dance with me.


    I left early that night…

    • stangerx says:

      LMAO — so you thought you had the local customs down till you didn’t. Great story, even if am sure you regret the situation….. isn’t that the playbook for all great stories?

    • Krishna says:

      Lmao…..can’t dance, so probably safe in that regard. Wish I could speak the language though…..some beautiful dark skinned women. Oh my!

  64. Rockphin says:

    Jackson added: “Although I made some mistakes at tackle, I think I’m still a great tackle. Me moving to guard looks like he’s a crappy tackle” but that doesn’t bother me.

    It is worse than we thought. Someone needs to step in right away to save this young man. He has obviously lost it mentally and needs help!

    “I think I’m still a great tackle” REALLY!?!?! When were you ever a great tackle?

    Delusional behavior needs to be treated quickly before he injures himself!

    • bookman11 says:

      Or they drafted him so raw at that position and the coaching is soooooo bad that he was naturally going to fail, but he believes in himself yet. With the way this team is being run, who knows???

      • The Flying Pig says:

        No – I think that’s spot on Bookman

        No question he was raw when drafted
        That was what all the experts said about him as a prospect

        And I think it’s a safe assumption to assume the Dolphins coaching hasn’t done a great job of anticipating who is ready and who is not

        And he’s probably confident in his ability and wasn’t really a disaster at USC, which is a completely different level

        I’m holding out hope for Jackson and I’m glad he is confident in himself…bc we know the Dolphins organization isn’t going to put the work in with young prospects

    E-mail just got. Sorta sad, but guess they wouldn’t send such out if didn’t work.
    There are only 50 “Let’s Go, Brandon” shirts left!

    Conservatives across the nation are ordering their shirts to stand up against Joe Biden and Big Tech censorship by the boatload, AND WE’RE STRUGGLING TO KEEP UP WITH THE DEMAND.

    We’re reaching out to our top patriots only to let them know our inventory is almost gone because when we run out, they’ll be gone forever.

    Stand against the Radical Left today by claiming your shirt before they run out!

    • mf13ss says:

      Know what’s “sorta sad”? The volume of “FUCK TRUMP” merchandise that was sold. At least “Let’s go, Brandon” is kid-friendly, not vulgar, and peacefully protesting Joe Biden.

      Cause I like politics. Used to be my job. And lots of folks talk politics, including on this board. What I did not like was personal attacks. Do you see some reason for them?

    Obviously we talk about everything under the sun here. But when you know a post or reply will probably cause some tension, come off as insensitive or insulting, we’re all better off refraining from posting it.

    That said I don’t get offended by what Stanger posts. He posts in a civil way even if you disagree. My politics are pretty close to Stanger even if not on everything, so maybe I’m bias.

    Seems alot of folk now love to go to their social media of choice just to enrage themselves. I don’t get it….

    As far as posting stuff here, doesn’t bother me, but that is just me. I can filter it and I don’t get overly concerned one way or another. I don’t think anyone wants the mods to start banning things, so maybe just choose to not be involved?

    • ukfinfan says:

      Couldn’t agree more ER.

      For many personal reasons (including losing both my parents in the last 4 years, moving house etc etc) I’ve been very busy and not posted much for too long, but I do find some of the stuff on here much akin to a zoo crossed with a kindergarten at times. For my personal taste, “bustin balls” steps way over the line to personal attacks too often. But then there are a lot of posters who also do this:

      As for US politics, I have no interest whatsoever in watching people either side of the political fence throw Molotov cocktails at each other. It’s just dull for me – I don’t even follow UK politics at anything other than a superficial level.

      All that being said, I still read almost everything on here, even belatedly sometimes a month or more old and sometimes I scroll faster than others – mostly because I respect and like a lot of the characters on here and all opinions expressed hold merit, though I’ll admit to gravitating to some more than others (no names no pack drill). I also think (imho) that some things in life that many held dear – respect, dignity and tolerance – are slowly being eroded from society as a whole and life is poorer for it. Fwiw, I have noticed a similar gravitation on this board, but nowhere as extreme as the world taken as a whole (mostly because there are more thinking people who constitute the residue of the original mob).

      Finally, “fandom”. It is probably no coincidence that US followers of a team are referred to as fans, but in the UK, supporters. This is not a dig at any fan who becomes disaffected with anything they are a fan of, but this side of the pond, you follow a team for life, unwaveringly, through thick and thin. I paid £116 for a ticket @ Spurs stadium, London to see the fins (+ hotel for 3 nights and associated costs). Don’t regret it for a second. I’d go to all home games too if I had choice (and I appreciate lots of mob members have attended many or all of the 10 fests). I also bought 1000 shares in my local soccer club for £2000 – the shares have no value, but they were bought as part of a move to become a fan owned club (like the Packers) to protect the club from predators who would seek to take over the club for financial gain and ruin it. It’s an investment I’ll never be able to cash in but one which I feel priveleged to make to “support” my club. I know there is no parallel to US “franchises” worth billions and owned by the super-rich, but just a different view of being a “fan/supporter” (some would also say idiot!)

      Our fins are an embarrassment again. It is mentally exhausting supporting a team like this, but I’ll still watch every game (I now have an internet feed which gets all US tv channels live – local feeds for regional CBS, FOX stations etc). I saw a real improvement in our fortunes last year and hoped that the trajectory would remain upwards. Sadly not …… we’ve tanked. I really don’t know why (other than it’s a systemic failure) and follow the civilised debate on here with interest. I do tend to agree with the current consensus that the culture comes from the top down and with Ross in charge (or not as the case may be) we are almost certainly doomed to fail unless he happens to catch lightning in a bottle and hit upon a front and back office team capable of running an NFL franchise effectively (which will be pot luck, not shrewd management). He hasn’t yet and the constant 3-5 year reboot is becoming exhausting. I wouldn’t touch Watson with a barge pole personally. I like Tua. He has exactly the right personal character traits this moribund franchise needs and if he can raise his game to an elite level we have the most important piece in place. As ever, though, since Marino was here, the fear is we’ll get part of the jigsaw in place but not complete the job and keep falling short. How many great defenses have we wasted and how many great players have we shipped out? I would also add the caveat that 31 other franchises are trying to lift the VL every year too ….. but ……

      Since D seems to be one of the most disaffected posters, I’ve ended up typing a D-length post but it felt good to get some stuff off my chest.

      Hope none of this has caused too much offense or stirred the pot too much. Just firing off some thoughts and observations in peace and respect.

      Keep the faith fellas even if it means taking a break and stepping away for a while. Our day will come eventually. I’m 60 now, so it better be fecking soon ……….. whilst I’m still young enough to travel and experience it.

        ukfinfan — seeing you here was the highlight of my day, so far at least. You are missed. Least we had faux you (Damian from Cornwall) at the Fest to get how much we do miss you. And could not be more sorry about your parents.

      • ukfinfan says:

        Thanks Stanger. I know how much you miss your mum. My relationship with her was as special as yours with your mum. Mine was also one of the angels on earth. She tended to dad every day for two years in a care home, broke her hip in going to see him, then was diagnosed with lung cancer. The treatment temporarily abated the inoperable cancer, but ultimately, it mutated and the bastard mutation killed her. I have nothing but admiration for Ken who fought his battle so bravely. I fecking hate cancer. Life goes on. It’s time the Fins brought some brightness into all our lives though?

      • stangerx says:

        Could not be more tough. My Mom had dementia and then cancer. Was there the night she died. My Dad was gone not so long after. In a weird way think not having to care for her anymore took the will to live out of him. But guess the circle of life. Hard as was on me feel much more sorry for parents who bury their kids.

    The people on this blog who complain the most about politics being discussed here are the biggest reason why things turn bad in the discussions and it’s all the Trump fans. I have no problem saying it, because it’s 100% true.
    “Let’s go Brandon” is probably the dumbest thing I’ve seen in politics in the last 10 years and I’ve watched the screeching in the street when Trump was elected and those pussy hat marches. If you’re the good party in the politics then act like it.
    Don’t complain that one side is doing something and then justify what your side does when it’s just as bad or worse. It’s middle school nonsense.

    • New Age says:

      Definitely an unbiased opinion….I agree the Let’s Go Brandon thing is stupid. Maybe when most of the nation is saying FUCK JOE BIDEN, we’d have some honest discourse in our media over the utter incompetence of that man’s regime. I haven’t seen anything but propaganda for the worst president in my lifetime and I saw some of Carter. If anything thinks Trump being uncivil and saying stupid things is comparable to someone destroying our economy and raising inflation to 30+ year highs …well that’s just about as stupid as Let’s Go Brandon. Pretty hard to hide the empty shelves, high gas, low employment and other issues he’s doing NOTHING to fix. But yeah…let’s go Brandon is dumb……

      • sb7mvp says:

        You see how you just ignored what I said and made it about Joe Biden? That’s what I’m talking about. Trump was not a good president. Joe Biden is worse, but that doesn’t excuse the failure that was Trump.

      • sb7mvp says:

        My post was also about the behavior of a few of the people on this board and less about Trump and Biden.

  93. Mike E. says:

    The Fuck Joe Biden chants are ridiculous. It’s like social media out in the open. I think it’s disgusting that people chant fuck our President, it’s embarrassing. The President of the United States deserves a certain level of respect despite what you might think of him. People think they can just do or say whatever they feel because they’re dissatisfied. Social media is slowly eroding (maybe quickly eroding) any decency and respect people have for one another. Trump was a big part of that, because he behaved the same way. He didn’t like something, he lashed out and whined about it constantly. That behavior was never acceptable from that type of office. I hate Joe Biden but prefer that he hides in his little hole rather than constantly posting nonsense on social media and whining like a pair of balls in public. He was never Presidential as a human being, not for a second.

    • twicethethe says:

      100% agreed Mike. Particularly the outward disrespect for office – regardless of if it’s Biden, Trump, Obama, Bush, whoever. Let’s have some decorum as a society.

      I think mass ‘social media’ has not played out well for humanity as a whole, and I’m actually increasingly against it in it’s current iteration. As some of you know I’m in the biz (software developer), so that’s saying something. Also because I’m in the biz (doesn’t necessarily make me any more informed or insightful than others), I get how much it can all be manipulated (by either side, domestically and beyond). When it is estimated that 15% of all Twitter accounts are bots, and I guarantee that number is lowballing it, but Twitter doesn’t do much of anything about it because a reduction in ‘users’ will hurt their stock/bottom line, what would anyone think about the quality of information and discourse on such a platform (same goes for all the other mass social media sites)? Not good.

      • stangerx says:

        “I think mass ‘social media’ has not played out well for humanity as a whole”

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      By the way, it’s bad enough talking football with these clowns never mind politics oy lol

    • ukfinfan says:

      Thanks Son.
      Yessiree – the fins keep finding new and wonderfully bad ways to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, when they were doing the exact opposite last year and even against the Pats in game 1 ’21. Glad you all enjoyed the Fest too. On a side note, my g/f and I had a reservation for a steak dinner after the game in London. Had it gone to OT, I would have missed it and my g/f would have been sat twiddling her thumbs on her own for up to an hour (she went to see Diana’s wedding dress instead of the Fins). I knew we would find a way to lose, so in the end I’m glad we found it in regulation time. As an aside on that play, the fins had 3 men on the goal-line before the TO. When they came out they only had 2. So they adjusted of sorts but still allowed the completion and called the TO. C’est la vie. Things can only get better starting Sunday. We are 2-0 vs the Texans on off-loading Tunsil for a zillion picks and walking away from Watson. Let’s make it 3-0 now.

  95. New Age says:


    You stated the politics complaints is 100% Trump supporters and that’s a pretty wide brush, isn’t it? It may be a few Trump supporters but most have been very controlled in not talking about the daily foibles of the president. Far less is said than anti-Trump statements during his mistakes. Did you just not post here much from 2017 until Biden? Did you forget David posts here and he hates Trump? Again, 100% sounds ridiculous.

    You mentioned LGB as the dumbest thing you’ve seen in 10 years which seems crazy. It’s not nice and is pretty dumb but dumbest thing you’ve seen? Do you just come here? Your statements are one sided hyperbole so I was just calling it out.

  96. New Age says:


    I agree about Trump. He’s a narcissistic asshole and really made the US look bad with his ‘bravado’. I definitely did not like him as a person.

    On the rest, I disagree. Communication is all about both sides being able to present their view. The media silences one side. How can normal people show disapproval of a clueless puppet? Not in polls. Those have natural limitations purely based on who responds online. Media won’t interview them. Media even lies when they speak ip. How else can you be heard? A representative in Washington? They already have media friendly politicians they exclusively use. LGB is crude snd stupid. Too many people think it’s witty. But…it’s s damn effective expression of disapproval at our propaganda arm and Joe Biden. Don’t blame people,who have had their communication outlets limited by elitists, when they use whatever outlet they can to be heard. I also completely disagree that a certain “king” must be respected. Our forefathers didn’t respect King George and I’m not going to respect King Dementia either. If it bothers our political elite and American aristocracy….well that just sucks. I’ll be devastated by their disapproval.

    Good to see you on UK – sorry to hear about your parents.

    I like that you can buy ‘shares’ in your local club to reduce the chance of predatory owners crashing in and cashing out. As an example I hear there’s not a lot of love for the Glazer family by Manchester United supporters because they feel that’s what was happening.

    • ukfinfan says:

      Thanks Twice. The Glazers are not well liked here by Utd fans for exactly that reason but at the top level, Utd are big enough to keep rolling. My local club turns over about £3-4M p.a. and owns it’s own stadium. It is a target to property speculators, asset strippers, money launderers etc and with a broad fan ownership, the sharks can never get a controlling interest to do as they please. A club only 8 miles down the road had exactly this happen to them. A new owner, leveraged buyout, spend, spend, spend, pulled out and disappeared, club sold for £1 to asset stripper then went into liquidation. All the money in soccer is in the PL. Lower league clubs eek out survival year to year. My club has sold several players just to pay tax bills to HMRC. Sad state of affairs.

      • twicethethe says:

        Yes a sad state of affairs – it would be a double punch to the gut to not only lose a team you root for (possibly for generations in a family) but also receive the economic hit of the team being gone to the town/locality. Glad you have some protection against that.

    My condolences UK. I’m very sorry to hear of the loss of your parents. I’m also very happy to see you here, please do make it a regular thing.

    So sorry about your parents. I’m glad you’re doing well though! Good to hear from you and hopefully will become more frequent even with our team’s woes

      Thanks New Age. There’s a saying in soccer – form is temporary, class is permanent. for me, woes are temporary – a desire for us to win is permanent!

  101. pheloniusphish says:

    So caught up with the board and sense a theme. Guess I shouldn’t have gotten that “let’s go Brandon” tattoo?

  102. D says:

    Look, the fuck Joe Biden or let’s go Brandon is childish, it’s classless, but it’s also not what it’s being made out to be. I have heard CNN reporters saying it’s a domestic terrorism, that it’s equivalent to saying let’s go ISIS. Lol I mean come on.

    The hypocrisy is that during the Oscars, Robert De Niro gave a 10 minute rant about Trump and said Fuck Trump onore than one occasion during that. He was applauded and heralded by the media. I mean you can’t have it two ways, demonize it all or let it all play out. It’s a form of protest, and free speech allows for it.

    I’m not pro Trump anti Trump I wish Trump never existed and I wish we could just move the fuck on, but talk about this in the vein of what was allowed during trumps administration and what they are attempting bto censor now and that’s a huge issue. I mean they have resorted to turning down the crowd noise just to avoid it, did they do that before. Nope.

    In summation my feeling is we have already crossed the line in what’s socially acceptable behavior and what is allowed to be criticized by the media and the populist, either the other side needs to pull up their big girl panties and start accepting they helped create this mess or they need to get some thicker skin. Again pro trp anti Trump whatever, fair is fair one way or the other. If they want it swapped back to no criticism they sure have a lot of apologizing to go for their behavior during Trump’s administration.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I haven’t really been watching the news so I don’t know what people on cnn, msnbc or Fox have said about it

      So I can’t speak to it

      I just think the phrase is slightly embarrassing

      If you want to say fuck joe Biden, just say fuck joe Biden
      You have every right to say fuck joe Biden if you feel that way , it’s practically your duty in America to speak your mind about the President, even if other people disagree with you or this 🐷 thinks your wrong

      I can respect that. I don’t really respect secret decoder ring bs

      To me the phrase speaks to a bigger problem in conservative politics today and that’s this conspiracy laced projection. You don’t have to hide your criticism of Biden and in fact many people don’t – but a ton do and have devised this scheme that they have to do that bc the “media elite” will suppress it.

      I also think there’s way too much people who are upset that people are adverse to one another. The country is designed to withstand different opinions and different positions on things. It’s actually good to have much different ideas even if you hate some some of those ideas

      I promise you, many people hate my ideas: so what – I’m a big boy and can take it

      And that strikes at the heart of what I said about “let’s go Brandon” being a silly code. If you have a strong opinion about subjects – guess what, people will disagree with you. That’s how opinions work. Deal with it

      Don’t come up with codes bc you think their is some mass conspiracy to suppress your ideas. The media and cnn or whatever is probably going to have a problem with some of your ideas. They have a problem with mine and so do many of you guys – but I expect it when I express myself. I expect people to disagree.

      • sb7mvp says:

        People WERE saying F Joe Biden, but the media said they were saying something different and the right just ran with it. They didn’t come up with the phrase, but they did take it as their own. I agree that it’s stupid because it’s like a bunch of kids who think their cool for saying codes for something in front of adults.
        You’re also ignoring the rampant conspiracy laced projection from the left. The conservatives don’t own conspiracy theories

      • The Flying Pig says:

        I am aware of the origin.

        The fact is, a media personality not wanting to say “fuck” and the air doesn’t equate to massive conspiracy to suppress criticism of joe Biden

        I think saying “conservatives don’t own conspiracy theories”
        Completely undermines the extent of its effect on conservative politics today.

        Republicans just spent the the last 2 years changing election laws based on fraud they can’t prove occurred. And when you confront them about losing cases to try to prove that fraud, its just opens the door to more allegations of conspiracies

        That’s real legislation that exists now. It’s not just an argument it’s law now

        It’s not just conspiracy talk by the fringes of people with radical wild ideas.

        People instinctively want to say both sides are at fault. We all want to be reasonable at some level. But I think you are missing the big picture when you default to that.

        Let’s go Brandon as a secret code for Fuck Joe Biden is cut from the same cloth as:

        The election being rigged
        Vaccines are bad for you
        There’s a caravan of immigrants coming
        The deep state
        Globalization is evil
        Etc etc…

        It’s the prevailing force in conservative politics today. And really, if the staple of conservative politics is that government is bad, it’s a pretty easy sell, because your audience is already predisposed to believe government is bad and has a hand in many bad things

        Anyway, more importantly I don’t hide my politics

        I let people know I hate the contemporary state of conservative politics today. And so what – people get mad at me and disagree. That’s not the apocalypse.

        At least I’m hitting my target 🎯

        let’s fo Brandon by conservatives is taking their eye off the ball – it’s not criticism that can persuade some one who isn’t all in, it’s rallying people that already agree with you. Which might work I guess when it comes to winning an election…

        I guess we will see and I deal with whatever results happen.

        But I wouldn’t do it – it’s not for me

  103. The Flying Pig says:


    Really great to see you again in here

    My condolences about your parents. I’ve lost family members in the last few years too, so I know it’s sadder than you expect it to be

    But that said, don’t be a stranger here. It’s good to communicate with friends even when it’s via internet and they all want to make you into breakfast 🐖

    • ukfinfan says:

      My condolences to you too Piggy – I hadn’t realised.

      Got my girlfriends ma n pa staying with us this weekend and was just discussing going to the local (award winning and supplier to the Queen) butchers for ingredients for a “full English” for Sunday morning. Back bacon (proper rashers with lean meat), Old English pork sausages and black pudding (blood sausages) all essential ingredients I’m afraid. I realise you will need to lower your pants (if present so early) and fart in my general direction. I’m prepared. 😣

    You stated the politics complaints is 100% Trump supporters and that’s a pretty wide brush, isn’t it? It may be a few Trump supporters but most have been very controlled in not talking about the daily foibles of the president. Far less is said than anti-Trump statements during his mistakes. Did you just not post here much from 2017 until Biden? Did you forget David posts here and he hates Trump? Again, 100% sounds ridiculous.

    You mentioned LGB as the dumbest thing you’ve seen in 10 years which seems crazy. It’s not nice and is pretty dumb but dumbest thing you’ve seen? Do you just come here? Your statements are one sided hyperbole so I was just calling it out.
    No, this is what I said:
    “The people on this blog who complain the most about politics being discussed here are the biggest reason why things turn bad in the discussions and it’s all the Trump fans. I have no problem saying it, because it’s 100% true.”

    “complain the most about politics being discussed here” being the key phrase. I’m not talking about people who make political posts. I’m talking about people attacking people for making political posts (even when the posts aren’t political), but are also the very people who drag this blog down in unnecessary political discussions.

    New paragraph so different topic. Yes LGB is the dumbest thing I’ve seen in the last 10 years. That’s my personal opinion. You’re free to disagree. What should have been a 24 hour meme cycle and died has become some weird movement like a bunch of kids who learned how to say cuss words/ talk dirty in front of their parents and get away with it. It’s been going on for weeks like it’s something brilliant and clever when it’s not. I don’t have a political affiliation. I’ve voted once in a major election and it was for third party. I just want people to be grown ups.

  105. New Age says:


    I was thinking about you this morning. All sweet and maple glazed. Matched perfectly with some fluffy eggs and toast with blackberry jam. Yum, yum!!

  106. New Age says:


    Good points and Piggy had some as well. I don’t think any opinion should be neutered but usually respect if people want to beer away from certain topics. I guess I proved your point though so my bad.

    LGB is terrible no doubt. There are better ways to show a biased and propagandist media, at least over a longer period. It has lasted way too long and I’m sure people who make garbage shirts and cups are glad for the constant business.

    Thanks for the rebuttals. I stand corrected.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I may be in the minority on this

      But I personally don’t have a problem with it being immature or hostile

      I can tell you I say a lot of childish and hostile things about trump
      And I don’t regret it one bit

      I’m not looking for an olive branch with people I disagree with
      I would rather know exactly where people stand on issues

      • New Age says:


        I agree. I want honesty and people agree and disagree with each other all the time and that’s supposed to be normal. You’re different than me in many ways and yet cannibals think we both taste delicious even though I’d disagree. There’s only one ‘the new white meat’ and pork producers promised it wasn’t me.

        I don’t think you can communicate well if you can’t say what you think. You can’t find common ground and most people have lots of common ground as humans. We both agree Trump is a turd, Grier is a turd, and Ross is a turd. Politically, we will probably always disagree. How can I ever learn your thoughts though if I’ve already put an apple in your mouth? Does that even add to your deliciousness at all? Inquiring minds want know

  110. D says:

    The let’s go Brandon thing to me was meant to mock the media since it was a left leaning media source that create it in the first place to cover for what was really being said. I tend to agree completely with piggy on the matter the let’s go Brandon is silly and childish, the shouldn’t hide it in code, just openly express their discontent by saying fuck Joe Biden. You could argue decorum in not also saying that, but decorum left years ago never to return.

  111. CavalierKong says:

    All I know is every time you guys mention ‘Brandon’, I always picture the ‘Brandon’ scenes from the Scary Movies.

    I think it actually would work quite well as a big eff you from conservatives to Biden, probably more so than the current Brandon thing, lol

  112. Mike E. says:

    Piggy, I have to say, I will never understand why anyone, and I mean anyone rails against voter ID. If you’re a registered voter and everyone has to produce ID that they are who their ID says who they are, they can vote. Unless you’re up to underhanded behavior, it shouldn’t be an issue. I brought my ID and expected to me asked for it. I wasn’t. I was disappointed. A signature does not verify who you are, if they really even look

    • stangerx says:

      As far as I know about some of the voter ID proposals I’d have to go get one when could could show up at the polls with my driver’s license, passport and full voter registration info. Why do I have to get something more to vote than I need to fly to other countries?

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Voter ID at the polls has very little or nothing to do with the election laws the republicans passed

      That is just not the legislation that passed in these states

    Some about Covid, but not all. US did worse than every country except Russia. And over 2 years is a lot.

    The United States had the second-steepest decline in life expectancy among high-income countries last year during the pandemic, according to a study of death data spanning several continents. The only country studied that saw a starker overall trend was Russia.

    The study, published Wednesday in The BMJ (formerly the British Medical Journal), assessed premature death in 37 countries, comparing observed life expectancy in 2020 with what would have been expected for the year based on historical trends from 2005-2019. Life expectancy dropped in 31 of these countries during the pandemic.

    The U.S. trend was among the worst.

    U.S. men saw life expectancy fall by nearly 2.3 years, from about 76.7 to 74.4. Women lost more than 1.6 years of life expectancy, from about 81.8 to 80.2.

    Make of this from Barry Jackson what you will.

    “Waddle, considered one of the fastest receivers in recent drafts, has been thrown just five passes that traveled at least 20 yards in the air and has caught only one of them, for 36 yards. Fifty-two NFL receivers have been thrown more deep balls than Waddle.”

  123. stangerx says:

    Aaron Rodgers lied about being vaccinated, and now has Covid (drop him if have in FF). Thing is he didn’t have too.

    The NFL does not require the vax. Only some extra precautions if don’t have it. He is getting crushed in the media now cause didn’t want extra tests and maybe wearing a mask in some situations.

  124. mf13ss says:

    I’ve got no problem discussing or debating ANYTHING that is posted here, as I’m pro-#1A. Nobody should be silenced or shamed. Just stay away from the personal insults and it’s all good. It’s actually HEALTHY to have discussions and debates, so long as one can accept another’s take.

    If one’s skin is too thin, then don’t bother posting something that will likely get a polar-opposite response… and we know these topics to be about politics and religion.

    And I’m getting tired of this “victim card” accusation BS… that’s a cop-out excuse for not knowing what to say. NOBODY plays the victim card on this blog as far as I know, and that especially includes myself. I’ve seen gas-lighting from certain folks on here, but no victim card playing.

    Another thing… some want to talk about NOT talking about or replying to political posts, yet they LABEL others for their ‘behavior’ (ie: “Trump supporters”)… not cool. That’s gas-lighting to totally disrespect their political opponents. Again, not cool… and talk about hypocrisy.

    If anybody wants to enter the political arena on here, let’s be honest: chances are you’re going to get some blowback of sorts being it’s a 50-50 nation. So long as there’s no name-calling and personal shots taken at another, I find it to be healthy… but boy that’s rare on here.

    Lastly, we should ALL try better to use better manners (me included) when it comes to communicating with fellow posters. At the end of the day, we ALL come here for a reason: love for our Phins and general respect for one another.

    Just Barry Jackson talking, but these numbers are less than we were talking about before. Gesicki goes for a lot more than that on the open market. And we can keep him no matter what he wants.

  136. CavalierKong says:

    LOL, Rock, if it had just been another woman’s bagel, it probably would have been a less intense fight.

    This fight was because she made one for herself and asked if I wanted one; I said I didn’t, then decided I wanted just a single a bite of hers, and she was intractable in her refusal…

  146. bailbondmike says:

    Anyone watching this game tonight? If so, did you see the TD run by Hines of the Colts? That was a perfect example of why we need to abandon this RPO shit. Their OL fired off that line. They didn’t have to worry about staying close to the LOS. The OC, RG and RT were 7 yards down field plowing the defense.

    I think this regression of our OL is directly attributed to this RPO crap. They were playing better second half of last season. Then they come into a new season and instead of building on last year, they throw this RPO wrinkle at them.

    Opposing defenses are firing off the line and our OL is busy trying to figure out if it is a run or a pass. Get rid of it.

  147. CavalierKong says:

    Joe Buck just called Joe Namath one of the best pure passers to ever play. Is that true? I always thought he was not really that great a QB, but had that iconic win over the Colts that will live forever.

    • mf13ss says:

      Joe Buck is… Joe Buck, LOL.

      Joe Namath is one of the worst QBs of his era, let alone NFL history.

    • Ken says:

      In the time he played he was pretty awesome. He threw his share of ints but it was a different game and contact was allowed in coverage. He was the first 4000 yard passer. You look at his numbers but that don’t look great compared to today’s QBs and they don’t look great. But he and Unitas were really vanguard of the transition of the NFL from a run oriented game to a pass oriented game. He was feared by opposing defenses every week

    • Tim Knight says:

      He was the first 4,000 yard passer. Before knee injuries he was very good.

    Pigster, reply for you up the board! We’re good, dude.

  149. CavalierKong says:

    I appreciate the responses guys, guys. It was well before my time, so I only know what I see in footage films and by what people say. And I know he’s a QB that inspires different opinions, because I’ve heard some people say he was great, others say he wasn’t very good. I just don’t recall ever hearing him called one of the best pure passers.

    • Ken says:

      I am old and live in the suburbs of NYC and watched him a lot when I was growing up. He was real good. Lighting fast release and great against the blitz. He was the prototypical gunslinger

      This is HOFer Kurt Warner doing the breakdown on Tua.

      • mf13ss says:

        Something Kurt Warner never mentioned that I will mention, is that there needs to be better spacing between our receivers. I mean, if ya throw to WR1, DB2 is right there within 5 yards to make a play on the ball if DB1 can’t make a play on the ball.

        NONE OF THIS is the fault of Tua, either! Our OCs are a joke.

    • Ken says:

      Don’t tell ORob

  150. ocalarob says:

    MF 13, i had seen that video, look at the patterns they run every rec is within 10 yards of the LOS, always at least 10 defenders in that zone as well, the word is out, make Tua beat you deep.
    he doesn’t have the arm

    • mf13ss says:

      Is it that Tua doesn’t have the arm (look at his college tape), or is it that our 3 OCs don’t know what the hell they are doing?

      I fundamentally disagree with ya, yet… I have come to RESPECT your takes. Perhaps… perhaps… the coaching staff knows something that we don’t? I dunno, but I’ll never disrespect ya, Bro.

      • ocalarob says:

        I know you’re good people MF 13, you would think that some of the moderators around here should hold themselves to a higher standard for the sake of the site instead of baiting a confrontation. maybe they can correct themselves over time.

      • mf13ss says:

        You’re a great dude yourself, my man ORob. I think the way you and I handle biz to agree to disagree should be a model for the rest.

        I REALLY disagree with you about Tua, for example. Yet, I’ll NEVER call you names, and vice-versa. I RESPECT you, sir.

  151. ocalarob says:

    the real truth is, this Front Office knows they made a huge mistake taking Tua, they know he has a weak arm and is not an NFL QB.
    why else would they want Watson

  152. ocalarob says:

    Tua can’t get the ball downfield to a rec, they stack the box on him, this also stops our running game, the offense can’t score and it puts major pressure on the D.
    you wonder why we are getting killed in every facet of the game?
    The lack of arm strength by Tua makes this whole team coaches included look horrible

  153. ocalarob says:

    his college tape is pre hip surgery, i’m thinking that injury has taken something off the ball, people that are inside the walls in miami say that his arm strength is not nfl quality.

  154. Ken says:

    Gibberish once again

  155. ocalarob says:

    if you’re an opposing dc, you give tua the deep throws, you load the box, take awat the dump offs, blitz every down because tua can’t make them pay for blitzing, he can’t get the ball downfield.
    tuas weakness is the deep ball, so you make him beat you deep.
    that’s why he has these 200 yard passing games and no running help whatsoever, it’s too crowded at the los

    • mf13ss says:

      IMO, if we only had a functional O-Line, everything would be different. And I’m SO with ya that we needed a running game to equal the playing field. Apparently, our FO didn’t care about a functional running game.

      • ocalarob says:

        the OL don’t know if they’re run blocking or in pass pro, that’s why you get the illeigble man downfield all the time, this rpo they have for tua is killing the ol, they are not firing off the ball in a pro set,
        the reason for the rpo is so tua can get the ball off quickly.

    Piggy – I have no idea what Republicans want, I just think proper ID should be mandatory. It doesn’t have to be a special voter ID. Drivers license or passport would be fine. What i don’t get is why a signature that can be forged easily or just mistaken instead of producing valid ID.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Well the laws I was referring to were a lot more than ID at the polls

      Every state varies, but I’m pretty sure in my state and your state we verify our identity upon registration

      When I voted on Tuesday, they asked me the first 4 letters of my last name, then the first 3 of my first name, then they pulled up my info on the database that was synched to my registration., then I had to verify my address

      That’s very thorough – I don’t know what else people want

  159. Tim Knight says:

    Jonathan Taylor runs out of shotgun almost exclusively. The difference is the Colts OL knocks people off the ball.

    M13, Joe Philbin is the Dallas OL coach now.

        there are some very good posters here as well,
        i guess the mindset of some is if they disagree with what you’re saying their instinctive reaction is to disagree and add an insult with it.
        how dare i think like that!
        it runs deep, i really think they can’t help themselves as it’s been pointed out on multiple occasions and still no relief.

  162. olddolphan says:

    JUST WANTED to drop in and give my 2-Cents on Namath. I am probably the only person here who saw him play IN PERSON MANY TIMES. From 1965 thru the mid-’70’s Joe and his “entourage” came to the Orange Bowl yearly, except for 1 or 2 seasons when he was injured.
    His strong persona was known to everyone in the stadium. But, more than that, behind a decent to very good OL, HE WAS DEADLY!! His mid-range passes HAD ZIP ON THEM. And his deep passes, more often than not, were right on the money. Knowing this, LB’s and DB’s were more apt to drop back into coverage, rather than blitz Namath. If you blitzed and didn’t get him, you’d likely give up a big yardage play. THAT’s WHY Namath was a leader in yardage passing and touchdown passes. However, father time wasn’t good to Joe. His knees started to give out. His offensive line deteriorated over time, becoming almost a joke (sound familiar?) For most of his last few years, he was either ineffective or injured. His statistics nosedived. When he retired, his stats did not look all that impressive. But, kinda like Sandy Koufax, when he was good (and healthy) he was amazing. I would have voted him into the HOF if I had a vote in an instant.
    JOE NAMATH WON the BIGGEST GAME IN PRO FOOTBALL HISTORY —Super Bowl III. His team’s victory gave instant credibility to a league (the AFL) that critics had laughed at. Thus, when the Chiefs won the following Super Bowl over the heavily favored Vikings, everyone knew the TRUTH. The old AFL (now the AFC) was just as good as the NFC. And, on balance, the AFC had better quarterbacks – – – then, as now, a major key to victory.

    • ocalarob says:

      the only superbowl the jets won, namath had a cannon, he finished his career with the rams. back then they didn’t protect the qb, i’m sure he’s in pain today.

    • ocalarob says:

      i remember that game, hank stram, ed podalack lenny dawson, was it tarkenton or injun joe capp at qb for the vikes? the chiefs killed them.

    • ocalarob says:

      i remember the vikes vs the rams i think it was the nfc championship to meet the chiefs, gabreil got sacked for a safety and the rams lost. it was injun joe capp in that game.

  163. ocalarob says:

    Bookman, the problem is; those who bait a confrontation that ensues, stick out over other credible posts, the stupidity clouds the good posts.

    it’s nonsensical to argue over the internet, so why bait a confrontation?

  164. ocalarob says:

    I would assume the bait they are taking comes from my point of view on football matters, they simply can’t logically explain why they disagree so they stoop to the insults to somehow get a point across. and it deteriorates from there.

  165. ocalarob says:

    they confuse my hatred of Tua as a personal insult to themselves.

  166. ocalarob says:

    and i will throw out some names for the sake of trying to correct this crap, at the top of the chart we have Ken, Krishna & David.
    we all know that David gets a pass.
    but Ken & Krishna?…….really???

  167. ocalarob says:

    if i were running this site there would be consequences for this behavior, while i wouldn’t want to see anyone removed, i would definitely point out the issue to them and suspend them temporarily until they fully understand to stop the disruption.
    we would be much better off as it would bring back those who are disgusted by the nonsense

    • ocalarob says:

      i know you can’t police everyone just the habitual offenders

    • The Flying Pig says:

      You aren’t running the site

      We are not likely to suspend people for busting your balls after you bust theirs

      Personally I think it’s out of line to ask for that

      • ocalarob says:

        i’m not asking i’m just pointing it out.
        you have that backwards mr pig, they bust my balls then i bust there’s.
        the fact that you don’t understand the process is part of the problem.
        read above, i was talking football when both ken and krishna chimed in with insults, they triggered it and the site deteriorated from that point.

        you have to understand the process in order to correct it.

      • ocalarob says:

        maybe i should just come out of nowhere and bust your balls, just for the sake of it. so you can understand better.

  168. Rockphin says:

    So, who should the Dolphins pick as the new GM? I really want them to replace the entire scouting department. We’ve had 5-6 GM’s in our he past 20 years but have kept substantially the same scouts. Grier was here 20 years directly contributing to constant mediocrity even before he was appointed GM.

    How do you know any of those people weren’t talking about your behavior?

    • ocalarob says:

      read above, they ae responding to my football post, how do i avoid that confrontation.
      this is how it starts.
      sure i hit them back, it’s human nature,
      but it’s the same everytime, they take offense to my football post and personally insult me. i hit them back and it deteriorates.

      i really don’t care, i’ll hit them back.

      i just think it’s time to point it out to try to get relief from it. to make this site enjoyable for all,
      don’t you?

      it’s a fucked up mindset,
      if i want to confront you i’ll do it face to face.
      some of these people say things on the internet they wouldn’t dare say to your face due to the consequences.
      here they have no consequences.

    Wow, and just like that the content improved.

  174. The Flying Pig says:

    Real fucking shifty that the team is 1-7

    And you have the nerve to blame the blog and the people the who run it


  175. ocalarob says:

    to all those affected by the constant insults and needless bickering on this site i just want to say.

    i tried.

  176. ocalarob says:

    you have posters taking shots at someone needlessly, it’s clearly pointed out in print above, you have people complaining about the constant bickering, bookman & UK. just recently.
    and mr pig who apparently runs this place sides with the instigators instead of understanding the issue and confirming it.

  177. ocalarob says:

    i just want to talk football without the nonsense, if i disagree to the point where i would insult you i simply would not respond to your post.

  178. New Age says:

    Personally, I enjoy active discussion and that will include disagreements. Part of growing up is learning to handle those disagreements in all their forms so I consider it a good thing. Learning how to ignore people is also a skill rarely used. I have no personal dislike of anyone here but I love to argue so forgive me if my arguments ever sound harsh. Just throw back at me like Piggy or SB7 do at times. Or question me like Stanger does.

    The bad things in society come about because everyone agrees or is forced to. One of the reasons we are so divided in America today is because all the hypocrisy and lies from our leadership is usually revealed on both sides. We also want completely different things in our country. Personally, I will always disagree with progressive agendas because I think they harm America. It will never change unless someone can show it doesn’t happen. I will also disagree with anyone who thinks Grier and Flores aren’t major problems that needs solved by the end of the year.

    I’m glad this site allows actual thoughtfulness and discussion. It’s the only reason I really come here. I like everyone here but I wouldn’t come if I was always forced to agree with terrible opinions like Tua is what’s bringing us down. Thank you Ken, Piggy, Mike, Twice and whoever else makes this site what it is.

    • ocalarob says:

      nothing wrong with disagreeing when done respectfully

      • New Age says:

        I don’t even need the respect. I’ve never seen a single person on these forums or the political one I frequent most. I didn’t need my friends to always respect me when growing up and I don’t need the respect of the idealistic and stupid children of today.

        I will agree with you that Tua isn’t the QB we thought we’d get at pick 5 and probably never will be. I think he was broken by bad management and it makes me a little sad to say it. I disagree with it being his mechanics though. He needed someone like Lamar Jackson got who could tailor an offense for him while also knowing what a RB and TEs and used for. We’ve never had that kind of OC.

      • ocalarob says:

        there’s a difference between a little banter back & forth vs constant attacks, i’m surprised this needs pointing out

  179. Rockphin says:

    I think the Dolphins biggest problem is that Tua’s feet are too small. It’s a documented fact that you can’t succeed at QB if you wear a size 10 or smaller. His feet are just too small to give a solid base to throw from. Everyone knows that a pass starts from the base.

    SMALL FEET is the reason the Dolphins suck. It won’t change until our quarterback wears bigger shoes.

    • New Age says:

      Did Tua intentionally wear clown shoes to fool Grier? Was it all his fault aftercall? Never trust a guy wearing size 14s while only being 6′. Grier, how could you fall for that??!!

  180. New Age says:

    Imagine if we had the OL the Colts have or a RB like Taylor. Tua would be a different QB today. Complete failure of management and coaching to get all those picks and have such a terrible group of guys playing OL while not having a great RB. At least our defense is goo…oh wait a sec…..

    • Rockphin says:

      Nah. It’s his small feet.

    • CavalierKong says:

      What really annoys me about the Colts oline- they threw up a graphic last night that the Colts are (if I remember correctly) tied for 2nd most starting combinations used on their oline this year in the NFL.

      Watching their oline COMPLETELY dominate the game knowing that we can’t even get a serviceable oline was pretty frustrating.

      We really need to get our oline issues, whatever they may be, fixed.

    Spent another week away at a condo in Gulf Shores to do some surf fishing. Did ok, 1 flounder and a couple small reds. Water temp is still a little high 73-74 degrees. Once it drops a couple more degrees, it should pick up. Wish I had taken my kayak. Had a north wind and surf was little to nothing.

    We took a evening dolphin cruise. They were everywhere. One had caught a flounder, came up to the surface and tossed it in the air. Did it 3 times. I was like, “Son, stop playing with your food!”. Then two came up along side the boat and rolled on their side looking right at us. They looked so happy and content. Again, I was like, “Y’all must not keep up with the team”. LOL

    Anyway, it was a nice break from negative Dolphin news.

    Look ORob I actually do like you but I admit I am annoyed at some of your antics of late. If you can’t recognize when you are insulting or baiting others as you do all the time that’s on you. In particular what annoyed me of late were the potshots you took on Stanger and the fest. He would really hard to pull off a great event. You falsely accused him of giving away your ticket and then just took every opportunity to bash the fest

    • ocalarob says:

      stanger unproked said some stupid things to me on a sunday loss, that’s what started all that, ask him.
      you get annoyed because of my take on tua and personally attack me admit it.

      • Ken says:

        I am annoyed that you cannot reasonably debate the issue of Tua. I have tried to engage many times in a reasonable debate with you but no matter what you have an agenda so I have given up trying so yeah I am annoyed about that too

      • ocalarob says:

        you see how the situation deteriorates? it all starts with the unprovoked insults.

        forget what happened in the past, read your response above to me without me mentioning your name.
        that’s how it starts,
        correct it and i’ll work on my end.

  191. ocalarob says:

    it’s like the player at the bottom of the pile who instigates a fight, the guy he instigates it with takes a shot at his face mask, and he gets hit with the penalty.

  192. ocalarob says:

    Ken, if i think i’m right and you’re wrong i’m certainly not going to agree with you.
    Tua has a very weak arm, he can’t stretch the field, that leaves a crowded box, due to that we acn’t run we can’t score and it puts our D in a bad situation.
    if you’ve been watching the games i’m not sure how you can disagree?

  193. bailbondmike says:

    I can’t remember a worse draft class than this upcoming 2022 class. There are only 2-4 players who are standouts at their position.

    Kayvon Thibodeaux, DE, Oregon
    Evan Neal, OT, Alabama
    Derek Stingley Jr., CB, LSU
    Kyle Hamilton, S, Notre Dame

    I don’t see any QB worthy a top 10 pick. They are all projects IMO. Look at the top 20 stat leaders for QB. They are getting smaller every year. About 80% of the top 20 QB’s are 6’1 or smaller.

    Kenny Pickett, 6’3, Pitt, might be the first off the board
    Carson Strong 6’4, Nevada, is like a poor man’s Herbert (only due lack of big stage).

    The only others with any size are 6’2. One I might take before the first 2 is Brennan Armstrong, 6’2, UVA. He is currently the passing leader but dude has some wheel’s. Big threat to run. He could leapfrog the other 2 as QB1.

    Another who could sneak in the first round is Matt Corral, Ole Miss, if someone wants to take a chance on a 6′ 200 pound QB. He is a gamer.

    We don’t need to draft a QB unless it is a late round prospect to groom as a backup like Tanner Mordecai, SMU, 6’2, 215 who has good tools to work with.

    This was just an example to show how poor this upcoming draft may be.

    • bookman11 says:

      I’d doesn’t seem to matter how good these draft classes are, we seem to mess it up anyway 🙂

      • bookman11 says:

        Maybe we should do the George Costanza opposite thing and whomever we think we should take, we take the player that is lowest on the draft board instead.
