    Just wanted to let everyone know, that Mr. Ross stopped by the DolfansNYC tailgate along w/ Fergie and some of the Dolphins cheerleaders, and they were taking pictures and talking to as many fans as possible. And some lowlife jets fans hit Mr. Ross with a hanburger
    Here is me on the left of Fergie, and Mr Ross behind her.

    I dont think any other owner in the NFL would do the same

    And the Jets fans keep saying they have class, lol. If you rated the teams in the NFL who have class I would put the Jets at #30, above Philly and Oakland.

    He truly does care about this team, the fans and wants to be the owner of a winner. He has made some early mistakes along the way, which he has learned from, but at the end of the day he really does care. He is not a buffoon or clueless or only cares about celebrities and money. You can tell that a winning team is by far the most important thing to him. Sure he is trying to spice up the game day stadium experience and some other things, but the team comes first.

    Good for him. Outreach to the fans might be where he is best suited. PR means a lot.

    If I didn't know better I would have said the guy to the right of Ross was Dan Carpenter sneaking in for a photo op.

    Jets fans and Raider fans are the only ones I can think of that would throw a hamburger at the owner of a team. How old is Stephen Ross? Jets fans are lowlives.

    If the Jets fan had that kind of arm strength and accuracy to hit Ross with a burger the Jest might want to sign him as a QB because their other two can't hit ****!

    I think we can guarantee that Tim Tebow was not the thrower.

    Ya know, I think Ross is getting this ownership learning curve down finally. I'm not unhappy with him; as a matter of fact I'd rather see our owner step in to prevent the signing of Orton as compared to the jest owner stepping in to compel the signing of Tebow!

    PS: Fergie ain't lookin so "licious" these days.

    i said all along Ross bought a bomb waiting to go off because that Fat Fraud Parcells was power playing him. I think Ross has learned there is a certain way things get conducted an it's not always about the biggest checkbook. The way he has been conducting himself is way better!

    Awesome showing by Mr. Ross. I didn't really care for him much at all at first but, now he's starting to grow on me. Does anyone have a rough approx of how many Dolphin fans were out there this Sunday?

    Or that it was Sanchez, because it would have missed Ross, and hit Fergie instead.

    I'm thinking Philbin & co. are having a very positive effect on Ross. This pleases me because I truely believe he loves the Fins.

    you can criticize Ross for star chasing (Manning, Harbaugh, and Fisher) and making some outlandish comments (Henne would be the best Miami QB since Marino) but I never understood other criticisms. The Fins were losing attendance when Ross became owner and he did a bunch of things to try and get local interest back in the club. Never understood people calling him a joke though. He never really, or at least not yet, played hardball with money and he doesn't get involved with football operations or make himself the face of the franchise. He goes to the locker room to be with the team after the game, and he's been sitting in the war room during the draft to learn how things work.

    To me his first few years mirror Arthur Blank's first few years as owner of the Falcons in a lot of ways. Good guy, does a lot of things to get more local interest in the team, star chased (Bobby Patrino, and tried for Bill Parcells) but when that didn't work out he went for lesser known guys (Dimitroff and Smith) and things started working out.

    He's corporate background didn't help with the hiring process, in business when you are ready to replace a CEO you find the replacement first( he got found out, didn't expect the level of press involvement) and when you don't know the industry you hire names not new creative guys who kill for the opportunity paycheck comes second.
    What I saw in Ross all along was that in spite of the mistakes, he was always trying to improve the team.

    We bought 200 tickets but we had a TON more people to buy tickets around our sections. There had to be more than 300 at the tailgate for sure...

    And not to nitpick but it was a cheeseburger and not a hamburger. I actually picked up Ross glasses for him after the burger knocked them off. :)

    How did Ross respond to the burger thrown? Did he laugh it off, expectant of the hostility and rivalry w/ the jet crowd?

    I thought he was really upset at first but once he got his glasses back he was totally cool with it and just kept posing for pictures and signing of autographs. He was just worried about his glasses. No f***s given in regards to the burger.

    I haven't been and deservingly so, he has made several stupid statements/decisions along the way, but whom am I to hold final judgement? Everyone has a chance to redeem themselves.

    Well..... anyone not named Saban.

    Me too. Ive always thought he was sincere and showed integrity. He made some rookie owner mistakes, and he's not a great public speaker, but he has made the right moves and never caved into fans stupid demands.
