    Is he bringing Pat Riley in to run the team?

    Because otherwise, no thanks.

    I'm going to start a firestorm here so I'll preface this by saying I am a Miami Heat fan, however, the NBA is freakin rigged first off. Second, the NBA has no hard salary cap so Micky Arison can spend as much as he wants and just pay a luxury tax. Third, Micky Arison himself has admitted he's not making any money on the Heat and luckily for South Florida he doesn't care.

    Would this be a bad time to point out that Carnival is a **** corporation that treats its employees like dirt and has a horrible health and safety record?

    He'd be a perfect fit for the Browns with all of their staph infection problems.

    It isn't really funny. It's actually shameful.

    I agree. Evil corporations. We should get rid of all the jobs they provide. Let these people find work some where else. Maybe they can get a Govt job. That will help them feed their families. Or they can go on welfare, but to hell with evil corporations. I hate the guy that took the risk and created the company I work for. I'm not thankful at all.

    Mickey may be just as clueless as Ross and we would still get nowhere. As for building the Heat, I think his contribution was hiring Pat Riley and nothing else.

    That's all it really took for us to get a title.

    Pat Riley, the smartest sports exec in Florida, for sure, and right up there natioanlly. :up:

    And THAT's the difference folks. Steve Bisciotti may be nothing special as an owner, aside from promoting Ozze Newsome, and that's enough for him like it was for Arison.

    He hired one of the smartest people around and gave him the resources to build a championship team.

    Meanwhile, Jeff Ireland is still our general manager.

    So yeah...about that contribution....

    This post is rubbish. Political, economic, and social views are completely irrelevant when discussing the fact that Carnival's health & safety record is absolutely atrocious compared to the rest of the cruise industry.

    Mickeys smart enough to let pat do what he does and stay out of his way. He's also built a first class organization which is as respected as there is in the league. Mickey's one of the best owners in all of sports.

    Yeah, good point. I bought a discount ticket on a budget cruise line, this clearly entitles me to experience an electrical fire and exposure to the norwalk virus due to unsanitary conditions.

    Are you still talking about a cruise ship or did you just become a minority owner of the Miami Dolphins?

    Pepe Billete? If we are going to take advice from puppets named Pepe, I would rather listen to what Pepe the king prawn has to say.

    I have no idea who he is, but it's hard to take someone named Pepe seriously.

    This is a ridiculous post I am not going to waste my time.

    And Mickey has lost hundreds of millions of dollars the past couple years with some sinking cruise ships. He's not going to make a big investment anymore. His son would be the one to make the purchase in the future if he were interested.

    I love all of the Spanglish he tosses in. I do that from time to time as well.

    This is classic...talking about Ireland: Ross lo mantiene como si fuera su puta querida. For those that don't speak Spanish it means....Ross keeps Ireland like his favorite whore.

    You get what you pay for. Buy cheap tickets you have to figure you aren't getting top of the line product. That's what makes a free market economic system beautiful, some like cheap tickets and are willing to put up with the crap it brings, and if it gets too bad nobody will buy tickets and he will go out of business or have to make changes. People like yourself that didn't like the product telling others is also a great thing. It gives the public the power to make change. The only time it becomes a problem is when govco gets involved and starts playing big brother.

    Hire the right people and stay out of the way? Sounds like a great owner to me.
