    He said "Miami Dolphins" 4:39 in, so uh I guess you missed it.

    I'd rather hear him say "we" "us" "our team" because that conveys ownership vs a generic "Miami Dolphins" label which seems disconnected.

    Honestly confused why he’s expected to utter the name Miami Dolphins when he is representing the Miami Dolphins. It would be like him saying Brian Flores. What context are you guys expecting for him to say ‘Miami Dolphins’?

    ... or maybe you’re looking for something to bitch about? Yeah I’m gonna go with that.

    This notion about not saying the words ‘Miami Dolphins’ every five ****ing seconds is one of the most batshit insane, stupid complaints I’ve ever seen outside of the ****ing POFO.

    GREAT! So that's 3 of about 12 coaches that used the phrase! I saw that the interview was over 18 minutes in length … how many times did he say it? Just the one time?

    Maybe … but then again, I tend to post many more constructive and positive posts than negative ones. For this I've been called lots of names like "homer" and such, but this does bother me. Maybe my association and source of connection with my team is a little different than yours … but it does bother me.

    That’s fine... I just think it’s a weird thing to be bothered by. To each their own.

    This is one of the most asinine things I’ve ever seen complained about on this site.

    Well I guess you would be the one fan. That would like him to sing the Miami Dolphins fight song after every answer.

    Maybe...just maybe, he feels they have to EARN the title of Miami Dolphins first.

    Seems more appropriate in that context. :)

    Or maybe these guys were toddlers the last time the dolphins were relevant, so they don't see anything to brag about.

    Most of these guys have been to multiple deep playoff runs, super bowls, etcetera.

    They will be proud of the franchise, if/when there is something to be proud of.

    I can understand a lifetime homer looks upon the past to get some sense of greatness, but these guys are looking to the future.

    The last SB win was over forty years ago. Flores is the new coach of a floundering organization. He doesn't seem the type to trade on accomplishments that he had no part of.

    Thought I said that.

    Unless you are saying that Flores is greater than the Miami Dolphins franchise.

    Weird … that's not something I've ever said.

    If that's an attempt at Reducto Ab Absurdem … then I'd call that weaksong. :)
