Here are renderings of what the new Dolphins Stadium "Super Site" might look like:




Saban will make call on Ricky:

Dolphins owner Wayne Huizenga has such confidence in new coach Nick Saban that he would allow retired running back Ricky Williams to return to the franchise.

"I'll do what Nick wants to do," Huizenga said Wednesday in his annual address at the NFL owner's meetings.
Huizenga also said that Bryan Wiedmeier, the team's chief operating officer, will serve as Dolphins president after Eddie Jones retires, meaning the hiring of another executive is unlikely.

"The concept is terrific," said Kraft, who heard a presentation from Miami owner Wayne Huizenga on his plan to build NFL-oriented projects on 269 acres around Dolphins Stadium and have the Super Bowl there every three seasons.
Ricky is still a commodity:

That's a negotiator talking. No coach, and certainly not one as bright as Saban, would plan his football team around a flake who already has abandoned it once. Remember, though, that Ricky owes the Dolphins $8.6 million for breach of contract, according to an arbitrator's ruling. Delicious stuff, this is, with ramblin' Ricky on the hook rather than the other way around.

He can play again in the NFL, but only after he satisfies the Dolphins in some way. He can stay retired, but even with the mystic bonus of reincarnation you would have to figure that it would take multiple lifetimes for a board-certified holistic healer, Ricky's latest career aspiration, to scrape up $8.6 million. No doubt Ricky meditated on all of this on his recent trip to India, along with the possibility of filing for bankruptcy. Saban doesn't want to push him that far. No value in that.

Look out, then, for a settlement.
Haslett againts Ricky comeback. :rolleyes:

"I don't know that his teammates would actually want him back for what he did," New Orleans coach Jim Haslett said Wednesday at the NFL's annual meeting on Maui. "He ruined lives. Coaches, players -- I don't know how an organization would even want him back, but that's something they have to look at. I wouldn't want him on my team."
Huizenga is confident in Saban:

Owner H. Wayne Huizenga said Wednesday that a Dolphins turnaround "isn't going to happen in one year" but is confident first-year coach Nick Saban is moving in that direction.

"The more I'm with Nick, the more I have confidence in his abilities," Huizenga said at the NFL's annual meeting on Maui. "His work ethic is unbelievable.

"Don't get me wrong. [Ex-coach Dave] Wannstedt worked hard and a lot of coaches work hard. But Nick -- I called him three weeks ago at 9:30 on a Sunday night. I asked him what he was doing and he said, `I'm just at the office watching film.' His approach to the game, players [and] the way you coach them, it's different from what I've seen before.

"Now, in time, we'll just have to see if it's better. I'm excited about it."

Pretty cool.. The main thing I want to see at Dolphins Stadium is a nice new big screen that the new sites like Lincoln Financial in Philly have.

why is there a Ford dealership with Lions logos all over it?
Don't know if the NFL has a deal with Ford, but i guess maybe because the Ford family owns the Lions?
