    this is why the media CANNOT be trusted and has ZERO idea what they think they know and have ZERO credibility...

    First there is a report saying Stephen Ross call Meeting with Sparano "Productive", feeling is Sparano stays and three minutes later there is a new report saying, Speculation: Dolphins Owner Stephen Ross Attending Orange Bowl to scout Jim Harbaugh.

    Its seriously all BS and at this point anyone not named Stephen Ross knows absolutely nothing! The "reporting" has really gotten old and stale.

    Although the meeting was called "productive" by Ross, there has been no evidence that shows Sparano/Ireland will stay or not. EVERYTHING is just speculation at this point and everyone on here just needs to be patient.

    I think it's going wind down to Harbaugh wanting the job or not, Sparano is plan B.

    what a joke huh? Nublar says sparano is staying and uses Mort as one of the people connected to Ross. then Mort says Miami is interested in Harbaugh. downright laughable for what passes as journalism these days.

    Ross better be careful how he plays this. if he fires Sparano, he can't just call Harbaugh and say "Hey Jim, come coach my team."
    He has to follow the guidelines of the Rooney rule, and interview minority coaching candidates as well.


    He could have a problem if those candidates feel that the interviews are a joke, and he plans on hiring Harbaugh anyways.
    I'm not saying the league would take draft picks from us, but don't be surprised if we get some negative media coverage.
    Huizienga played games with the Rooney Rule when he hired Saban, so the league office could be keeping an eye on us if we fire Sparano.

    I highly doubt Ross needs to watch Harbaugh coach a game to see if he wants him. The filled sadium comment was great!

    If I was a billionaire owner of the Dolphins, I would go to the game going on at the stadium too.

    Is this the same rule that the Cowboys are following?
    What is really funny is that the Vikes can hire Frazier full time without interviewing anyone else yet the Cowboys can't hire Garrett without a bogus interview. IMO that is BS!! Talk about a double standard. If you are a interim HC and it works out you should be able to get hired period! Why should you have to interview anyone else. If that person works out then they should be able to get the job - it's an in house hire which should be applauded. Reward those that work hard for a team. Garrett should be the same situation as Frazier - both did well and deserve the job. This Rooney rule should not apply here - ridiculous!!
