    I would guess almost 90% of the "casual fans" would say that.

    It's funny....One of my customers just referred to him as our coach. I had to correct him.

    i have to agree with this one until Sparano starts making a name for himself as our HC.

    Yea, the press makes him look like our HC. I often think he is as well. Most casual fans who wouldn't say Parcells probably wouldn't say Sparano.

    They would say Nick Saban probably

    Casual fans are not die hard fans. People who read this board daily (o.k. almost daily) are not casual fans. I had an argument with a so called fan a couple of days ago. I asked him, "if you are a fan of the Phins, then who's the head coach?" I answer is I received was Bill Parcells. That is when I informed him that he is not a fan.

    So true, there is a difference in being a fan and liking football and/or a team.

    most ordinary fans who watch about 30 min of the game say they watch casually, and then there team goes to the playoffs and all of a sudden they are hardcore FANS. those people make me laugh, i had so may people back in college and home acted taht way before the pats were any good. No one gave 2 ****s about them then all of a sudden they were wanna be experts.

    Casual fans are pretty much the antithesis of what we are at Finheaven. We pretty much live and breathe Dolphins football 24/7, 365. Whereas the casual fan starts caring when the season begins, and once the season ends doesn't really care about what happens in the offseason. For them, when football season is over, it's over. Any information that they may run across in the offseason comes from ESPN, and they usually treat it as gospel. They have a very basic and limited knowledge of the team. For example, if you asked them to name the Dolphins long snapper, they usually say one of two things: "Who?" and the other being "what's a long snapper?"

    Anyways, probably 93% of casual fans would say that Bill Parcells is our head coach.

    Hell most people on this board see Sparano as just a puppet(I hope he is not) with Parcells making all the decisions. We always hear what Parcells likes without regard to sparano.

    thanks for participating in my thread.. i wasnt sure how it wa going to go over.. but its true.. everytime i talk to somebody about the fins it drives me crazy.. i have people telling me they think the phins will win 10-12 games this year.. and when i ask why they say, cuz parcells the coach, blah blah blah.. lol

    personally, i think we will win around 6 or so games.. but id love to be wrong and win 8-10... lmao

    I look at this way. Parcells is here to put a team together, and Sporano is here to coach the team. I don't think we'll see Parcells on the sideline at all during games. He'll be up in a box somewhere looking over the game and doubt very seriously if he's even wearing a headset.
