    "I don't live in a hole, I don't live in a cave," the quarterback said Tuesday, before plunging into preparations for Saturday's game at USC. "The talk is fine. You hear that stuff. But it's not that hard not to get caught up in it, really. It would be a disservice to my teammates and this university if I started thinking about all that stuff."He calls the so-called "Suck for Luck" campaigns "stupid," shaking his head at the notion some fans of losing teams — most notably the 0-7 Indianapolis Colts and 0-6 Miami Dolphins — are rooting for those losses to keep mounting so their franchise will be in position to use the No. 1 pick on him in the spring."I don't think a fan should want a team to lose, whether now or later," he said. "Fans should support their team, have them win, and whatever happens, happens."http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/nationworld/wire/la-sp-1026-andrew-luck-20111026,0,3740022.story

    Don't worry. Myopia will dictate that Andrew Luck's thoughts get pooh-poohed.

    Empty rhetoric. What else is gonna say? Hes saying the most vanilla, non controversial thing he can. Standard blah stament..............i only care about saturdays right now. i gotta focus on my next game. im not even thinking about the draft. you should always support your team.

    empty, pc rhetoric

    And the Myopia begins.

    He could say absolutely NOTHING is what he could say. If it wasn't an issue, he wouldn't even mention it in the first place.

    Please.......so a journalist asks a question and hes supposed to stare blankly at him not saying a word. Of course hes gonna say what he said. Just like if someone asks Bill Cowher if anyone from the dolphins got in contact with him. Hes gonna say......im working for CBS right now. i havent thought about coaching. the only thing im interested in is next weeks game. blah blah blah .....hes gonna say that whether hes been contacted or not

    the only myopia is the fewer and fewer anti luckers desperately turning every stone over, looking for any tidbit to assume that he wont play here, he will hold out or he will go back to school. its actually getting quite pathetic. they so desperately hate the suck for luck campaign that they will over state and blow out of proportion anything to prove that we are doing irreversable harm to the franchise. i honestly say this, i think there are a number of dolphin fans who hope we miss out on luck on the last weekend or that we get him and he busts.

    you wanna root for the phins to win each week. have at it. enjoy cheering.....i wont stop you. but the only myopic vision is the one that cant see that the suck for luck campaign is going nowhere while we are in contention in getting him.

    That's the definition you spammed on me when I said there are Colts fans saying SFL. I find the fact you disbelieved that, spammed the definition the personification of irony. Really, hilarious. :lol:

    hmmm kinda concerning to say the least that he is calling it stupid
    because luck could flat out pull an eli manning and say no i dont want to play for a tanking team
    and will stay my senior year at stanford so the dolphins draft another offensive lineman in 1st round..
    and suck for luck continuens into next year as the dolphins go 2 seasons without winning a game..
    and andrew says screw the dolphins and the 2 years of ultra suck went for naught..

    What if this article was posted on the Bleacher Report? Someone's head would explode.

    Thanks for editing your response.

    First off, it if was indeed Bleacher Report, I wouldn't have wasted my time 95% of what is written in there is by amateurs that have no more insight than the regulars in here. Hardly gospel, more like gossip.

    Second, it is indeed Myopia. ALL of it.

    You guys all openly root for our team to lose, meanwhile the rest of the league laughs at you, the players are calling you out, and now Luck himself tells you it's stupid, but your shortsightedness (Myopia) dictates that its all false.

    I have NEVER ever said I wouldn't like to see Andrew Luck in a PHins uniform. If it happens. AWESOME...BUT, by openly rooting for the current team to lose, you are indeed throwing the 53 guys currently on the team under the bus. Each and every single one of them.

    Don't be surprised when they don't show up on Sunday's. Why the hell should they??? Don't be surprised when no other FA's want to come play here! Why the hell would they?
    Don't be upset when Luck gets here, he has nobody around him, and we still SUCK. It's in the cards you are playing.


    And before you go off on this Decade of mediocre BS rant, I have to point out you guys look like a bunch of spoiled babies that didnt get enough spankings as kids.
    Over half the teams in the league have had LESS success than the Dolphins over the last decade...yet, I don't see 16 fanbases comprised of Myopic crybabies all whining in unison that they wan't their team to lose....


    Careful what you all wish for, you very well might get it...and a whole lot more

    The irony meter is just exploding right now when people who root for short term failure in order to have a better chance of long term success are referred to as myopic crybabies.

    I really wonder how many people here want us to miss Luck just to be spiteful and say "I told you so." Smh...

    I don't care what this guy has to say about it. He is not in our shoes. He doesn't know why we are thinking the way we are. I could care less if he likes what I do. I just want him to play and win with the Dolphins.

    I am a well documented non Suck for Luck'er......and I do NOT want to say "I told you so". but more than that, I don't want 31 other fan bases, and the whole of media to be saying it back at us this time next year. I dont believe in rooting against my team and trying to justify it by saying "it's for the greater good" that I cheer against my team.

    Lets get Luck, bring it on. I just dont see turning my team into more of a laughing stock as the way to go about it. We suck right now, lets not make it worse. but crowning a kid like everyone is him, just makes me think he will be all the more cursed.

    It would only be about 28 other teams fans giving us crap because there are at least 3 other Suck for Luck campaigns going on. Also who gives a rat's *** what other fans have to say if we get our QB and turn this thing around.

    Hey, I agree. but why wont people just admit it's an IF and quit acting like he is 100% the answer. We don't know, it's just a great chance. not THE chance.

    I want Luck, but I'm not going to root against my team in order to get him. He's one player, I cheer for my team, not for its players. Players come and go, its the team that stays.

    Besides, the team is and has been getting beat enough on its own without my encouragement. When Reggie Bush says something sucks, than you know it sucks, because he has a lot of experience in the field of sucking.

    I don't think any fan should tell another how to cheer for their team, but it is befuddling to me that in the team's darkest hour yet, some folks would openly express hope that our team's failed season becomes even more disastrous and we miss out on the #1 draft pick. Do you truly wish for your team to have a terrible season and not at least get something exciting and potentially great to show for it, simply because you are upset with some fans who are fed up and willing to fly over the cuckoo's nest for a few weeks to ease the pain of watching this wreck?

    Likewise, it is confusing to see the 'LuckSuckers' accused of short-sightedness for advocating that our team take a few more lumps now to be more competitive later. That is, quite frankly, baffling.

    0-16 and we get Luck. 1-15 and we're still drafting 2nd pick in every round. there's no IF about that.

    Theres a big IF there, a lot of teams start 0-6 or 0-7 and still end up winning a few games at the end when they are meaningless. 0-16, 1-15, and even 2-14 are rare seasons reserved for the truly bad.

    What else is the kid going to say. He has to stay out of the fray. Anyone who watches Indy and doesn't think they are in all out "Suck for Luck" is delusional. We, on the other hand, are competing with Indy but in fact Tony is still trying to win games. On that basis alone we should get the first pick as we are clearly a more pathetic operation!

    We are, but I just cant imagine two teams having 0-16 and 1-15 in the same year.

    I think the colts are worse than us.

    You better get ready to have your mind blown then because the Phins and Colts will be lucky to get 2 wins between them.

    No you dont really want Luck. If you are rooting for them to win and get as many victories as possible than you dont want Luck. Its like me saying.....gee i really want the USA to win the world cup but than I root against them in all their qualifiying round matches.

    Essentially what you are doing is saying i want Andrew Luck but im going to root against us getting him.

    Visibly passionate relentless displays of "Suck for Luck" by frustrated fans sick of mediocrity ... result in the perception of being even less-than-mediocre "fans who Suck" to The Lucks

    Well THE chance we haven't taken when we were supposed to since Marino retired. It's time to do what needs to be done and go after the top QB prospect. If he fails I won't be happy sure, but at least we tried. When was the last time any Dolphins FO has tried to get a QB for the long term future? We get short sighted clowns who want to "win now" with discarded table scraps like a damn begging dog.

    I don't care about what the Lucks think. This team will be equally awful regardless of any campaigns. If Luck decides not to come here then he can go back to college. If he does come out we draft him regardless if he wants to be here or not. If he refuses to play we trade him for a whole bunch of draft picks. Either way we come out better than we were.

    Nope, what I'm saying is that if we are in the position to draft Luck, I want to see him in Miami. However I'm not going to actively root to be in that position because to do so would mean cheering against the team I have cheered for my whole life. S4Ler's to me are nothing but Bandwagon fans who refuse to take that extra leap and cheer for a new team.

    Disagree. Colts face TENN and JAX twice each, they also face a 1 win CAR team. As far as we're concerned, KC looked awful early, but is killing it now. Skins might be an issue, otherwise we dont have a win on our schedule.

    Ahhh.......so first prize is if we win some games and pick around 8 or 9. Consolation prize is if we have the worst record and wind up getting Luck.

    Oh dear God......

    That wasn't even a clever analogy. You used literally two exact same scenarios with zero irony, but delivered it as though it was inventive and ironic.

    No, First prize is going 10-0 over the last ten games, getting into the playoffs and winning the superbowl to spite all the SFLers. Thats not going to happen but that would be first prize.

    I don't have the all-or-nothing mindset like you do. Nor do I see Luck as a saviour. Seen too many busts and underachievers come through the league.

    Listen, I'm all ears in resolving what to me is rooting for two competing ideas. I understand if you want to root for the phins. I understand if you would be okay with getting Luck as a consolation prize. I get that. I dont get how you could have each one as a primary interest.

    Okay than, let me ask this to all the anti luckers who root for the phins. No judging. One answer. Nothing to do with whose a better fan or not. Simple question, either A or B. Which scenerio if given the choice would you rather happen.

    A: Dolphins go 1-15 by beating the Redskins and get the number one pick

    B: Dolphins go 5-11 by beating the Redskins, Jets, Bills, Chiefs and Giants and getting the sixth pick
