    FINS' SEARCH MISSING MOE, LARRY & CURLY?


    The ongoing saga of the Miami Dolphins in their puzzling (nice way of saying fu--ed up) search for a GM continues to baffle league insiders and NFL front offices with the recent disclosure that the Fins top brass granted an interview with former Dolphin Paul Warfield after he contacted them and requested an interview. (Note to Eddie and Wayne: you are supposed to interview guys that you call up -- not ones who call you ("Hey, this is Tommy Tunafish and I sit in Row 179 -- tell Wayne I'll be down for an interview after I finish laying this concrete slab today"). Per one front office guy we know the Dolphins "are treating this GM search like an old Three Stooges movie -- calling in guys who have little or no overall experience for the sake of saying they called them in" (we are still trying to locate the Three Stooges clip he is talking about).


    Another assistant GM remarked that "a lot of teams would want to be in the same underachieving boat that the Fins are in right now . . . they are much farther along than most teams in the front office and coaching levels . . . the problem is that you have an owner who is impulsive and getting a chafed a** from the fans' comments . . . he needs to relax and change some of the assistant coaches, not the front office."


    A third insider remarked that if a change has to be made "leave Rick Spielman and his staff there and have Ron 'The Legend In His Own Mind' Wolf be a consultant or whatever the hell he says he wants to be this week."

    The reason the interview Warfield is because he an ex-dolphin plus he's black so they can say the interview more than one minority and look good to the league, they are not serious about him

    Again, the source of this garbage is PFT and they are about the least reliable "source" of information ever. They are essentially the football equivalent of the "Weekly World News;" in other words, they simply make up whatever they think will get people fired up. There's little or no truth to anything they write and, for the most part, they're simply a bunch of juvenile minds who didn't get enough attention from their mommies. They're a sad bunch of sacks really.

    I'm going to write an article about JJ coming back to Miami and send it to the PFT and see if they print it. I'll say I'm someone who knows.

    I tend to believe the main reason they're waiting so long to hire a GM is because they really wanted to interview Scott Pioli from the Patriots for the job. They'll wait no longer and will name a GM this week.

    PFT is the most low rent, amatuer site on the net. They do nothing but try and stir up things. They think by making all of these outrageous articles and comments they are being "controversial". Reality is they are just a bunch of amatures who look stupid.

    I advise fans here to not read or buy into this crap, because it isn't worth your time to read it. Unless you like being led around by the nose.

    Far be it from me to question anybody about being a "fan", but I have a hard time believing that any real Dolphins fan would find anything at all hilarious about that "article".....and I use the term loosely.

    THAT ARTICLE IS FREAKIN HILARIOUS I am a huge Fins fan, I don't need another questioning that FACT, especially someone way out in cyber life. Dude, you responded twice already to this thread, and both were directed to me and not the subject, get over it. Find something else with your valuable time rather than reply, if you don't like the thread. We all have work and play in our lives. Sorry that you feel that supporting a professional hometown sports team has to be serious business and not fun & leisure. :rolleyes:

    It is NOT hilarious in any way, shape, or form....It's not much more than a piss poor attempt at a post on a message board....I just don't get the mentality of a fan who thinks that is funny....please explain that to me...

    As far as me responding to you, you'll have to pardon me for getting defensive when I perceive somebody to be taking a swipe at the Dolphins for no reason...Be it friend or foe....

    Surely you didn't expect everyone else to embrace your slanted vision of funny, did you?

    I also feel your past posting history is relevant to this posting of semi-smack on the main board....It shows that you have a history of spouting off negatively with little or no reasoning behind your posts except to be controversial.....Hence the title of your post here and the fact that you didn't even bother to follow up your own submission with a comment.....I mean, if i wanted to read PFT, I would go there and read it, but, I don't, and if someone wants to bring it here and stick it in my face, then I would hope that they have some sort of point to the whole thing, rather than just moving a joke of an article from one part of the internet to another......

    How about you tell, us why you think that article is so hilarious???

    Bit of a double standard your setting there isn't it inFINSible?? Talk about slamming your own team, how is this thread any different than all the ones you post about how terrible Jay is?? I guess since you don't think Jay is going to the probowl next year, then you are not a Fin fan. I for one thought the thread was pretty funny. Some times being a dolphin fan the best medicine is laughter. Keeping Dave as coach is laughable......or cryable.

    :lol: You got the wrong guy.......find all these threads you are referring to....I'd like to see them....

    And if Dolfan02 had made some sort of comment with his submission maybe I would see that he meant it in a "laughter is the best medicine" kinda way........

    Change the name Dolfan02 to any fan of any other team, and then maybe you can see my point.

    I think that the Dolphins are being cautious and thorough in their search for a new GM to take over the personall decisions. and reading anything else into it like the dipsh*ts at PFT is just ignorance of the facts of the situation.

    Also....
    Keeping Dave at coach is laughable, to you....to me it's not. I choose to see the benefits of taking the personell power out of Wannstedts hands and letting someone else take over that job. Since ultimately the failures of this team rests on the backs of the players.....As many personell people around the league will agree....Players that Wanny chose, no doubt, but not players that are coached badly...get my point? Seriously....

    I agree completely.....sometimes I think that some fans think that Coaches control everything........believe it or not.......It is the players that win or lose.......I can't think of a game that Dave was absolutely at fault of losing.................The players always seem to help to lose games..........

    Doodoo, doo-doo... doo-doo-doo... (Jeopardy theme music)


    I see your post remains (mostly) uncontested. What gives? I keep waiting for a "juicy" retort. Man, I hate being disappointed. :lol:

    And... damn, inFIN! Remind me never to make any meaningless posts peppered with underlying antagonism towards our 'Fins, ok? ;)

    Seriously, the Dolphins GM search is probably no better or worse than most. So I don't really see what the big deal is all about.

    As for the 'Fins in general...

    Despite sounding like a broken record, I will once again reiterate... we should all try and remember that...

    - The loss to the Texans CAN absolutely be pinned on the refs.
    - The first NE loss CAN be pinned on Mare not once - but twice.
    - An the Colts loss can be at least in part be blamed on a rookie left tackle and moreso on stupid coaches that continued throughout the entire game to get this kid ANY help.

    So there we go from 10-6 to 12-4 or maybe even 13-3... a badly blown call, TWO chip shots uncharacteristically missed, and some seriously bad coaching (offensive line) in one game [or more].

    Really, I think we all forget that there are far worse teams to be a fan of than the Dolphins. I for one, think myself pretty lucky to have grown up in Miami and so... grown up a Dolphins fan.

    Next season will be a lot of fun, too... come what may.

    And that's all I have to say about that.

    As for the search for our GM... I think that making "fun" of a remarkably boring process is just a sign of how boring the offseason really is (doesn't take long, does it?)! Can't wait for all the innane banter to start about the draft and free agency movement.

    Re: Doodoo, doo-doo... doo-doo-doo... (Jeopardy theme music)

    Oh don't worry, I'll remind you alright....:lol:

    Seriously, I just hate to see antagonistic posts on the main board.....ESPECIALLY from other Dolphins fans.....I just don't get the mentality behind that....Now, I'm not from the "if-you-don't-have-anything-nice-to-say,-then-don't-say-anything-at-all" school, but, if you are going post inflammatory or harsh opinions then you should expect a like reaction.

    I don't hang out here because I hate the Dolphins...... on the contrary, I love this team, always have always will, and when I sense attack, no matter where it's coming from, I will defend. Can't help it.....Sue me.;) :tongue:

    :lol:

    The time it is taking to name a GM is a GOOD thing. We are not rushing the decision, which is important. I saw that article earlier, and I think it is pure stupidity. So waht if the Dolphins want to take their time naming a GM. It has a huge impact on the direction of the organization so who can blame them for taking some time. Plus, it is not like naming a GM last week would give us a huge advantage over naming one this week or next.

    Re: Re: Doodoo, doo-doo... doo-doo-doo... (Jeopardy theme music)

    When someone else has a different opinion than yours, you can't just let it go can you?? Looks like you can't follow your own advise: Infinsible's advise that he doesn't follow himself
    I took a break here hoping to see if I was able to put a smile on other Fin fans faces, instead I get a 4th and 5th reply of you keep saying that I am "intentionally trying to be inflammatory" or however the heck you stated it... FYI, I posted this LATE last night and was in one of those lazy humorous moods, I've NEVER EVEN HEARD OF profootballtalk before yesterday, so I thought the article was funny to share it with other... instead I get you taking cheap shots at me and others who find the article funny. The way I see it is, you bashed my thread because I wasn't informed of PFT's reputation through your eyes. Did I anywhere say "Look at these hard concrete facts I found" NO. I guess when you stay at this site as long as you have, your fellow Fin fans start looking like "posers" uh: Everyone starts looking like fake fans But you're right, we should never mock our own team even if it helps us get through a tough season, I guess the following post is uncalled for as NCFinfan noted you do as well: Mocking Wannstedt

    Are you satisifed I had to give you a sample of your own teachings? I don't want to play these games back and forth, this is real ridiculous, especially with a person who's signature is "you're stupid". Gosh what am I thinking for even responding. But it would be uncalled for if you left my name out like that, and say I done this before or whatever garbage you said. Hopefully we can leave it at this, and continue to show our loyalty to our team and not attack our fellow fans.

    NONE, of your examples fit into this situation, each and every one was taken out of context....NONE of them was the beginning of a thread mocking any part of this team....two of them, you didn't even get the point.....

    On that note....Try reading my sig again and you will see that it means exactly the opposite of what you think it means....

    Like I said earlier, had you included some sort of remark instead of letting the only evidence of your opinion be the title of the thread...maybe I wouldn't have responded the way I did...

    Or are those your thoughts in parenthesis????

    Hey Dolfan02
    Don't even bother replying to "inFinsible". -and I use the term loosely
    I know you have at least a few other handles on this board.

    Here you are preaching sh#t! Like you are some high & mighty lord of Dolphinville. You have never posted anything worth a crap, and all of your replies have been only smack.

    So what, the past season was laughable. Like the team we deserve the butt of the jokes. We as always are a good team that gets beat by the elite.

    Last Off-season we needed:
    OL (2)
    #2WR
    #1QB

    We drafted first LB
    Signed FA LB
    Signed FA S
    Signed FA DT
    Signed FA #4WR
    Signed FA #2QB

    Hey Guess what?
    We need this off-season:
    OL (2)
    #2WR
    #1QB

    Too bad though this time we are going to have to release some Defensive players because we're in Cap Hell!!!!

    Hell yeah pretty Laughable!!! -Sad!!! -Pathetic!!!

    **This is a response "infinsible" not that smack crap, and worthless chatter that evolves from your finger tips.
    Give it up! Cause to me, YOU R NOT A FINS FANS!!!!!

    only fools rush in.:goof: i think waiting is a good thing. take your time and think of all the scenarios. after all, this isnt the coach we are talking about here, this is a GM. this is someone you want to be here for a long time. duh. Besides, what kind of moves are they gong to be able to make now other than getting organized? FA isnt until february/march and the playoffs are still going. duh.
