    Over the years i have lost a few things due to anger issues when it came to our Fins.I tore my jersey right of my chest broke a remote and a coffee table.had a few heated fights with friends and family as well seeing that i live in Buffalo.
    Now that i have addressed those anger issues of the past i was wonering if anyone else had done something similar.

    Thrown my hat/bottle of water many times. Once I got so heated I punched a metal pole. Nothing too extreme though.

    Good on you getting those issues addressed. Have to always keep in mind, as passionate as we may be, it IS only a game

    I fratured my heal in 5 places. But that was because I was thinking of the last 20 years of fins football.

    Remote controls. Fortunately, my cable company always repalced them for free.

    EDIT: Sometimes I just dealt with it being one remote short for a while to punish myself for being a moron.

    Threw my iPhone into what I thought were the cushions of my couch when we gave up a Geno Smith td in the 4th quarter the last game of '14. Which we lost....finished 8-8. I missed the cushions, phone hit the wall and that was the end of that phone. I think i poured myself a triple in the kitchen after that. No playoffs!

    The worst for me... Tried to fit my couch out the small living room window... Luckily it didn't and I only had to replace one small pane of glass. Jets comeback win from 30 down will do it every time.

    October 23, 2000...hurled a bomber of Sierra Nevada pale ale through the sheetrock in my apartment kitchen after the Jets comeback down 30-7. Didn't get the security deposit back of course.

    Little kids throw things when they're upset. And adults tell them not to.

    Adults that throw things are therefore not even being childish. They're acting in a way that children are not permitted to act.

    Which is not to say I haven't thrown things, because I certainly have. And been embarrassed after doing it. But the crappy Dolphins bein' crappy doesn't exactly rouse that in me. You might as being upset that a horse ****s on the ground.

    Nothing. I laughed. Before midway through last season, I lost a lot of my passion and I didn't care nearly as much anymore. Their play on the field was a comedy of errors, and it became a game to predict what they were gonna screw up next.

    Plus, stuff costs money. I'm not about to destroy it because of the Dolphins.

    Threw a large stadium cup full of grapefruit / vodka at the TV during a Monday night game vs. Pittsburg in 94.

    Almost forgot that I kicked a coffee table across a tile floor and it knocked a hole in some wood paneling. That had to be in the early 80s or late 70s.

    Came close to breaking my hand a few times. That was many years ago, when I hadn't experienced enough life to put things in their proper perspective.

    Cell phones and TVs. Well, 1 TV. Macbook Pro.

    I busted a $2,000 TV during the 2014 NBA Finals when Danny Green just couldn't ****ing miss from three.

    Think I've calmed that **** down now. That was my wake up call, lol....

    I'm a hat thrower. 1st game my wife ever watched with me was the 2009(?) game vs Indy where we led like had the ball a ridiculous amount of time yet still allowed Manning to drive down the field and win the game at the end. I threw my hat at my living room window and went outside. I didn't speak to her for 30 mins.

    Yep I recently broke my xbox controller in frustration and I'm not going to get a new one for a while so I make myself suffer. Actually the first controller I've broken since I was 15 or 16. All over a ****ing video game lol. I felt like such an idiot.

    My doctor said it was the second most painful bone to break. Said the knee bone was the worst.

    I once threw a high horse at bratty kids who wouldn't stay off my lawn. That wasn't Dolphins related though.

    Well, I was a kid when we lost to SD in the '81 playoffs after being down 24-0 and coming back to lead very late 38-31. When Uwe Van Suckman missed a FG as regulation expired and then again in OT, I put my foot through the wall.

    My Dad made me fix the sheet rock and thus I learned how to spackle so something good came out of it I guess.

    Watching this game was the first really painful sports moment for me. I was 10. Brutal.

    I never drink during the games, just a shout, slam on the floor with my hand and then I go for a 5 mile run afterwards.

    My story, which I'm not proud of but it makes a good story, was breaking one of those little handheld TV's they used to have by throwing it across the room and smashing into a wall. What makes it interesting was it was during the "clock play" game. I threw the TV after the Jets scored on their first drive in the third quarter and walked out and refused to look up any results or watch any highlight shows. It wasn't until the next day, I got to work and had a message on my phone from my mom saying "wasn't that the most exciting comeback?!" Pretty sure I've never broken anything since then...and when I moved out of that apartment years later, I found a few pieces of that shattered TV as I was cleaning out the room. I guess if I were Robert DeNiro's character in Sliver Linings Playbook, I'd have to sacrifice a little TV every time the Dolphins got behind to make sure they'd comeback. Fortunately, I'm not quite that superstitious.

    I usually try to keep my cool, but I am infamous among my immediate family (and constantly reminded by them) for my behavior during the last play of the December 8, 2013 game against the Steelers--you remember, that lateral play that almost won the game for the Steelers. Toward the end of that play (before the out-of-bounds call) I threw the remote and said a few choice words. To end on a happy note, I felt the complete opposite this past December with the joy of watching us win in December in Buffalo!

    Wow, yes. I was the same 10 or 11 and like you, it was my first traumatic sports experience too. Winslow blocked both of those FGs I think cause he kicked them so low. Winslow rumbling through our secondary is burned in my mind - whenever someone says "great TE" those images surface.

    It's been years but I broke all kinds of **** when I was young and thought the fins had a shot. Back before acceptance of what it meant to be a dolphins fan sunk in. College to be exact ... after what was always already a long weekend ... no excuse but still. Mostly beer bottles and remotes but there were a few other unfortunate victims ... a bong (RIP zong), a few bottles of bourbon, a few DVD players, a lamp, a phone or 2, and I'm sure more. I've also burned fins attire I was currently wearing in effigy and threw one sweatshirt off a balcony into a neighbor's yard so I could watch their dogs tear it apart. This was common behavior for all of us during the college years ... nothing out of the ordinary.

    It only happened once since my early 20's when they drafted Dion Jordan at 3 and I threw a marble ashtray through my buddy's tv. We went to a BBQ that day and I was already black out drunk by the time the draft even began ... no excuse but still (no patterns here ...). I ended up finding a bigger, nicer tv for nothin on Craigslist and had it hooked up before he got home from work ... so that was good ... but that was the last time.

    Now I just laugh and rationalize terrible play with a better draft pick.

    I smashed my lucky "water pipe" after tebow beat the Phins out of nowhere a few years back.

    And my dad punched a hole in the wall.....after a win...lol...after the Lamar Smith game winning run in the playoffs vs the Colts.

    Imagine all the things we could break if the Phins ever play in a competitive playoff affair! Maybe this year? As hopeful as ever 25 years later.
