    60-40 is close enough to 50-50 to be considered speculation

    Great news for the franchise, if true.

    Sparano surviving means the Dolphins dying.

    How the freak can anybody think Tony can stay?
    If he stays,it will be just like Wanny's last year.
    A bunch of desperation moves and trades to try to
    win it all in one year that will set the team back for years.
    Then we will be back in this same situation,this same time
    next year.
    Pull the freaking trigger.This regime will not change it's philosophy
    on how to build a team...and their way is flawed toward todays NFL.

    You never know. Maybe Dan Henning will reconsider, and give his good ol' buddy one more year of his offensive prowess.

    They can kiss my support good bye if this happens. There is no justifiable reason for keeping Sparano as head coach. None.

    This decides whether I pay money to see the Dolphins or not. I'm not spending hard earned money to watch a mediocre team play for FGs.

    Part of me wants to see what Ireland and Sparano can do without BP looking over their shoulders.

    This may be what is saving them in Ross's eyes as well.

    We'll see

    I had a feeling when I read that Sparano and Ireland had to re-interview for their job. Sounded like Ross is looking for a reason to keep them instead of evaluating how bad they are and firing them.

    Just a feeling but I think Ross will be a horrible owner and this franchise is in trouble as long as he is the Captain of the ship.

    If Ross keeps Sparano then he's as big of, if not a bigger idiot then Huizenga was

    I wonder why Don Banks knows?

    I think don Banks is simply piling on the speculation bandwagon.

    Financially, it is cheaper for him to stay with the current regime than to make changes. Even if that means a dip in ticket sales.

    Sure, there was a .1 percent chance. I just didn't think Ross was this dumb.

    All I want to read is: Sparano fired, Henne cut, Henning fired, Ireland fired and Dolphins looking at Cowher and Harbaugh as next Head Coach

    Don Banks is an assclown with no journalistic integrity whatsoever. His "source" is really his magic eight ball

    Ouch @ the Don Banks hate. He's a well-respected writer, and has won a lot of awards. I always enjoy reading his articles, and he gets inside info often.

    Awesome. So far I got the part that Sparano would come out and talk about getting better, and that an announcement later today that Henning will have "retired". Now we need David Lee to get canned, and I'm batting 1.000!

    Edit: Maybe not. Don't see any report yet on Henning being gone. :(

    I'm going to be furious if no changes are made...Not sure what else Ross needs as evidence that this Coaching staff sucks! I'm starting to feel like Wanny Ball days all over again. Every NFL fan, every single journalist across the globe saw the need for change, except Wayne.

    Come on man....

    Maybe cause there's no more money in the kitty. Wouldn't they have to pay the remaining amount to Sporano and then pay a new coach.
