This is exactly what I am saying. I think that the fact is that free agency has made all the younger guys look only at the logo. I have been a fan since I was 7 years old. The team is WHO is in the uniform as well as the logo. If I wrapped a turd up in a Hershey paper that doesn't make it a chocolate bar...rafael said:I could see myself not watching pro football for a while. I could never root for another team and I would feel conflicted enough (if he was a major part) that it would detract from my enjoyment of watching the team.
Whom are you refering to? If you are aiming at me put your gun down and please bother to read a few of the posts in this thread.

If he does come back hopefully some of the fair weather fans will leave for good.
Nope. I wouldnt. Id always be waiting to hear that he quit again or got suspended.FinFrenzy said:If Ricky came back and lit up the field..............WE ALL WOULD FORGIVE HIM

I hear ya Poornate.. I don't totally agree with you but I certainly understand your POV.poornate said:My point is this. Last season was tough to sit through. I watched every minute of every game. Most Dolphins fans haven't seen a season like it unless you've been around for 40 years with the team.
If Ricky had offered to come back in week 12 or whenever and turned it into a more respectable season, I would have voted no as well. I don't want a cancer on the team I love. Bottom line.
Players come and go, and my bet is that he comes and goes in no more than a year, if he comes at all. I have never ever booed a Miami player in all my years as a fan, but I'm going to boo him repetedly, and thruout, during TD's, fumbles, everytime I see his number go by. My hate stems on the field, and does not branch out in to his personal life. He disses the Miami Dolphins last year, so F$%% him.SkapePhin said:Just wondering how it would work.. I dont know if I could continue supporting a team if I loathed one of the main players on it..
So guys, if you hate Ricky, how would you view the team and your fandom if he comes back and plays for the Dolphins?
