    Comparing it to cruising is not the right thing to do and is a rather narrow view.
    For one there is still cruising available where the destination is the main objective. So you still have choices.
    Secondly cruising has gone down in prices and berths have increased. And thirdly most new amenities unknown to the cruising industry some 20 years ago are included in the price. And if you have to pay for them they are rather small priced compare to the same experience on land.
    Football has become more expensive in every way and does not offer new amenities. He is not building a 'mega ship' to entertain the masses he is simply maximizing profits by eventually forcing everybody to buy overpriced items. It is basically becoming a rip off unless you enjoy to pay for a frozen and reheated chicken wrap $20 or a Sloppy Joe burger straight out of the can for $13. A bottle of Floridian cost you $10 which you can buy a 6 pack for less at Publix.

    The basic fan ship who held the flag up through all the losing years were those who saw a football game as an all day event. And it was our job to hand down that tradition to the next generation. My son has never really seen a successful Dolphins team but he is a tailgater. For him it is all about hanging out with friends and family, bbq-ing and as highlite to go to the game. Ross will lose that new generation of Dolphins fan by eliminating that type of entertainment. It will become a casual crowd who doesn't care about the success or not and he will lose the life blood of the franchise which are still season ticket holders. He'll force the team to be more successful even more so to fill the seats because the 40,000 season ticket holders won't be there anymore.
    Personally I don't care. I am getting into that age that eventually I have to begin to reconsider what to do on game days. A few more years of tailgating and that will be it for me. It is your generation who enjoys Uber and paying $30 for a basic frozen food meal and a bottle of beer. More power to you. :laugh

    No idea about the area your talking about, but they are building a facility for growing their own grass for the field, could that be it?

    You are talking near the Turnpike to the north? Is the race track gone? I haven't come that way in ages.
    It has nothing to do with the Dolphins or the stadium though. It's too far north.

    New field, for a new season, is being put in place today. Over/Under on how many times the field gets replaced this season? We already have it being replaced twice since preseason started.

    This is ridiculous. Soccer game in the stadium last night and the grounds crew has literally been working all.night to get the field done for today's Canes game at 6pm. It is 4am and they are still painting the field.

    You really need to let go of the field. The field was in real good condition for both football games. If they want to pay for overnight crews that is their decision.

    The Field looked great after a Canes game yesterday. But someone needs to learn to manage the storm delays. 52 years in Fl and I have never seen anything like that. I engineered 100 people on 2 busses to the the game and had to get them out of there without watching the second half...WTH I kept hearing this was an NFL rule and not the Dolphins...Biggest fan here, but C'mon Man! It is South Fl. If we have to wait two hours twice because lightning was 1 mile away and then 3 miles away and in the mean time, we sat there and watched the Sun Shine......#Fail

    I thought that I read where the sod was to be grown on a sod farm up in Palm Beach County.

    Too bad we don't have a night game at home unless it is a 7-hour 1pm game. :lol:
    Though the Jags game might become a Flex game.
