    One thing is certain, Pro Player Stadium(by then it will be DHL Stadium) will be 100% ours after the 2010 season.

    No love lost there. Wayne wasn't going to be invited to the Marlins' Christmas Party anyway.

    No, the marlins need to get a stadium next to my house and play there..

    They'll eventually get their own stadium, so why wish them away from Florida? Have some consideration for all the Marlins fans out there that enjoy watching them play.

    That's too many more years to have to wait to get rid of that awful dirt infield.

    Well maybe because they're already looking in Las Vegas. He's not wishing them away, he's just stating what the news said.

    Typical double talk. Wayne playing to the media to sugar coat the truth behind the scenes.

    Earlier this year he called out Mare for missing "game winning" field goals. Some of the most important ones were on INFIELD dirt.

    Fans cheered him for calling out Mare, but were ignorant why Mare was missing them. Meanwhile, he was pocketing the MILLION$$$ from the lease agreement.

    Now, he's portraying himself to be "angry" about the dirt. Casting himself as the "defender" of the "fans" by telling the Marlins to get out of "our" house. Fans are buying this routine as well.

    Meanwhile, he got to single out a SINGLE player for our losses while he laughed all the way to the bank.

    The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    Typical politician behavior and the "voters" still feel empathy for his cause.

    "I'm just a poor rich guy."

    It's amazing how the mob mentality (wanting heads for losing) makes people leave their common sense at home.

    Of course it is.Its just a negotiating ploy.Does anybody really think the team will be moved to Las Vegas?.The TV market is not big enough.

    Here is what my local paper had to say regarding the Marlins:

    "The Florida Marlins have met with Las Vegas officials about a possible move, saying negotiations for a new ballpark in Miami have lasted longer than the team anticipated..........Jeffrey Loria, Marlins Owner, met with Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman and others for about 90 minutes on Wednesday."

    I think it would be nice for the Marlins to have their own place considering how we have lost games by having to kick off the dirt infield (Mare last year against New England comes to mind). I'd hate to see the Marlins leave Miami, but I feel the Dolphins must come first. I doubt MLB is going to put a team in Vegas, however, considering their concerns about gambling.

    I wouldn't want my team in Las Vegas. Gambling and hookers galore. Be lucky to win 20 games.

    As far as I'm concerned they can stay. They are the only team in town winning championships. They are not the reason we lost games. The reason we lost games is because weren't good enough. The games we lost the opposition played on the same field. Stop whinning!!! Boo hoo the Marlins are destroying the Dolphins season. The Dolphins are the only ones destroying their season.

    I am not wishing the Marlins out of town. I am just wishing them out of Pro Player Stadium(DHL Stadium). I hope for all the Marlins fans that they stay in Miami, just get a new stadium.

    Get the F*** out Marlins!

    Don't know if this has been posted yet, but PPS has said that the Marlins will not be allowed to play in the stadium after the 2010 season. Does anyone know why or who made this decision? This is great news...no more dirt infield...if only they had stopped playing there before last season...:)

    Its not stupid. Fact is, we probably would have beat the Pats at home last year if it wasn't for the dirt. Two Field goal attempts and both were missed. We would have been 11-5, would have made the playoffs. The whole season would have been different.

    Oh man, that hurt. Yes, it is nice to see that there are some people on this board who know and follow football. Unfortunately for you, you're not one of them.

    Even if Mare makes one of those field goals and we win the home game against New England, we still had Wannstedt as a coach and Jay Fiedler as a QB. You think we could have gone up to Gilette Stadium in January and beaten New England under those circumstances? Because if you do, you're even dumber than I thought.

    The Marlins have brought two World Championships to South Florida since 1997. Since that time, how many have Jimmy Johnson and his protege Dave Wannstedt brought to Miami?

    I'm with you on that. I'd love to see the Marlins get their own stadium. God knows they deserve one. I just get really ticked off when these idiots come in and make stupid posts about "MARLINS GET THE F*** OUT...GO TO LAS VEGAS".

    the imortal Howard Cosell called baseball an "18th century sport" and he was correct. whatever baseball is, its NOT worth risking a football injury over.

    He also said, "Look at that little monkey run!", so Howard wasn't the "be all end all" philosopher.

    Yes, thanks for pointing out that I live in Syracuse, and no, I'm not an Orangemen fan.

    Please don't breed. Thank you.

    Both teams should have their own stadiums. In this day and age it's absolutely ridiculous that the Fins have to play on the dirt infield. And I'm sure the Marlins aren't thrilled with the chewed-up outfield either. Hard for Fins to get their footing when moving from grass to dirt to grass as quickly as they need to. There's no room for multi-sport stadiums in this day and age. Injury factor and poor footing are just two of the reasons why South Florida needs a baseball-only park.

    I 100% agree. Unless you're a fan of the Marlins or live in Miami, your opinion is just **** on the Marlins.

    That's like me telling you to get the Yankees out of Jets stadium if they played there. Unless you happen to give a crap about both teams, don't go selfish, and tell other teams that other people care about to get out.

    It's just better for both teams to have their own stadium...there's only like 3 or 4 stadiums left that have both sports playing there. It's safer, and will benefit everyone.

    I'm sick and tired of people from other states, such as Illinois, saying the Marlins should get out.. Perhaps your just a bitter Cubs fan, and have abandoned baseball because you haven't won a world series pennant since the early 1900's.

    However, the Marlins do need their own field.. not just because of the Dolphins.. but because Joe Robbie is a really bad baseball park.

    Wierd how these threads are started by people not from Florida.

    "Get the F*** out of Wrigley Field, damn Cubs"... how does it feel?

    No.

    You know, it is possible to live in South Florida, love the Dolphins and dislike baseball. I know that might be hard for you to grasp, but try.

    Actually, I'm from Ft. Lauderdale... I live up north now... and by the way, I live 7 hours from NYC and I HATE the Yankees... so whatever about that.

    I'm a Marlins Fan, a Heat Fan, a Panthers Fan, and a 'Canes fan... but I'm a Dolphins Fan FIRST.

    Both teams need their own place. It's the best thing for BOTH teams. I'm not being selfish. I thought the Marlins deserved to get their own crib after the FIRST World Series, and they definitely deserve one now. And if the Marlins getting a new Stadium happens to make JRS/PPS a better place to play for the 'Phins, which it will, then I'm all for it.

    Do me a favor... think before you jump all over somebody. It helps to stop you from looking like an idiot.

    I suggest we give Pro Player to the Marlins and have a new stadium built for the Fins, like the one Seattle has.

    That's an OK idea... but we have a SB in Miami in 2 years, and are in the final 4 for another SB bid. I would have to think a new stadium for the 'Phins would be hard to pull off for that reason alone.

    I say we go back to the Orange Bowl!!!

    Let 'em have their Super Bowls at JRS/PPS... and we'll just play all our games at the Orange Bowl... man, that was THE place for 'Phins games!!!

    The fact that we had to rely on a fieild goal, and the fact we still couldn't beat them in overtime, we did not deserve that win. And besides even if we had made it at 10-6 or 11-5 or whatever, with the way we had played all year there's no way we'd make the superbowl. The titans, colts and patriots were all a lot better than us.
