    Looks like Stephen Ross is committed to SFL as much as we are. Now, if that isn't a good owner, then I don't know what is.

    Either he is definitely in on sucking for Luck, or he really just doesn't care. It can only be one or the other.

    Tony is being paid to lose. First good move by our owner.

    Today was downright embarrassing on a number of levels.

    Likely another move to improve Ross' reputation with potential new coaches that he is not a quick trigger kind of owner. Plus, who do you make head coach? Mike Nolan, coming off a 4th quarter collapse? Todd Bowles who saw his secondary allow Tebow to move the ball down the field on two late touchdown drives? Maybe Karl Dorrell?

    Who exactly do you go with at this point?

    Still cracks me up that some people want him gone yet others want him to stay so the team doesn't win a game. It's Bizarro World I tell you, Bizarro!

    I put in Brian Daboll, then someone else has to run the offense, and maybe we'll get a 3rd down conversion for a change.

    Why are you guys so mad?

    You realize Tony is the best one to lead us to a decade of excellence.

    You people want a decade of Mediocrity and a few wins this year...No ****ing thanks.

    We don't know the back story of what's going on with this team. Nolan may have already told Ross he didn't want any part of taking over for Tony. You're not going to bring in someone from the outside to finish the season out; nobody's that desperate to do it.

    IMO, "remaining the coach for the near term" means Tony's staying till the bitter end. If Ross said he was staying till the end of the year today, a lot of people would freak out. So Ross drags things out, and let's circumstances dictate whether or not he has to intervene as the situation continues to unfold. This happens in politics all the time.

    this is what you get, when you have am owner that this is not his main love & baby. For Joe Robbie, the Miami Dolphins were his life. He was a lawyer, yet worked to make the Dolphins his main business. Huizenga, was diversified as an owner in a lot of businesses, but the Dolphins were his love. With Steven Ross, it seems that the Dolphins should be an amusing toy, and when a toy stops working, you stop playing with it. He has stopped playing with the Dolphins and is on to his next toy somewhere across the country.

    When you put in 1/3 of your wealth into it, you care. Don't think for one minute that Ross doesn't want to win, that is ridiculous.

    how many games does tony have to lose at home, and how many last minute chokes against inferior teams must the fans endure? If there are any coaches, who, at this point, would not understand pulling the trigger on Sparano .. then that doesn't say much about them or their level of self-respect.. So who'd want em anyway?

    Seriously, we'll be lucky to win a single game this year. Denver was the worst team we will face out of the rest of our opponents. If we can't beat them then we won't beat anyone. The Giants will kick our *** next week.

    I don't know how much the fans have to endure. This is the first week where I truthfully felt like Ross will make a move. Than again, who exactly do we go with the final 10 games? No one on the staff really deserves the interim role.

    How exactly? Ross hasn't made one football decision yet. He inherited all of this, so lets wait until this offseason when he actually has to make a true football decision. Using celebrities, orange carpet, stadium upgrades, water park for the basis of most anti-Ross rants is ridiculous.

    Of course he cares about winning that's why sources have said that Ross wouldn't mind tanking a season for a franchise quarterback and better seasons.

    I'm a Cubs fan, and the team has had a new owner for two years who the fan base has been ripping for not doing anything to help the team win...until this week when he hired Theo Epstein.

    agreed.

    Ross is doing his best. He has made some wise choices thus far.

    1) Refused Jeff Ireland to pay top QB money for a very mediocre QB like Orton.

    2) Tried to get Jim Harbaugh as coach

    3) Decided to be under the salary cap by a good amount and constrain Ireland and Sparano from making more stupid personnel decisions in the off season

    4) Keeping Sparano around so Sparano can suffer more (believe me Sparano can't wait to be canned and take all the money , having to face this team every day is KILLING HIM!), .. Ross is torturing him where Sparano is dying a very slow and very painful death

    5) Ross understands the importance of the QB position and is "all-in" for the Luck sweepstakes

    I have no complaints with Ross. He didn't hire these buffoons, Huizenga did
