    How about getting a petition together for Ross to release Tbum. Create a link send it to all the Dolphin fan sites with well presented logic that Tbums skills are not up to par. Thoughts?

    I have been on this bandwagon since the day he was hired as an adviser to Ross

    It's all very simple. If you really don't like 'tbum', all you have to do is buy the team and then you can fire him.

    If you think enough people agree with you, try a Kickstarter campaign. If you don't get to the billion and change needed, you could always fallback to funding FH.

    sounds like a great idea since it has worked so many times for so many other teams where fans were disgruntled with their FO.

    I would sign it.

    It probably wouldn’t amount to anything, but the hope would be that Stephen Ross would catch wind of it and see the petition.

    If anyone would like to PM me Ross's personal email address, I'd be happy to draft a letter to him expressing our concerns.

    Start with the 20 guys that hung outside HQ at Davie wanting Ireland fired. I’m sure you’ll create big change.

    A group could get the flying banner going again. It's embarrassing to the organization.
    If the people are prepared to sign a petition for tannenbaum, where does Grier sit in all this? He's the GM right?

    Yup. Anyone who knew Tannenbum knew he would ruin the team. It's what he does. Hickey was probably the best GM we've had in over a decade (not saying much I know) and then Tbum comes in and stabs him in the back and replaces him so now we have our worst GM in over a decade driving the team into the dirt. What a waste of time.

    I really would have been excited to see Hickey get a longer tenure. But Ross being a NY guy bought the spiel from Mikey.

    The one freaking guy who did his job properly is the only one who doesn't get a bajillion chances and gets kicked out on his *** after 2 years, I seriously wonder what goes through Ross' mind when he's making decisions for the Dolphins.

    Hey the internet is a strong tool and can create a tremendous amount of pressure for change. The real question here is how many fans really agree that Tbum is holding us back. Its going to take a lot of votes that can be forwarded to the Sun Sentinel, the Miami Herald as well as Ross. How much recourses will it take. Technology can be a very inexpensive tool.

    This is actually a great idea.

    All we do is round up every dolphins fan globally. We need 100,000 people to get in on this. That means each buys in for $10,000 each and we have $1B.

    I’m putting in $20,000 so I can be majority owner. My first move is hire a GM from this site. PM me with your application and plan.

    Billboards are good but require money.
    Picketing at Headquarters is good, but would need to know when Ross is there, which is rarely.

    Petition is best, if marketed properly. And the Petition would need to itemize T-baums list of hit-blunders, and end with the statement for his removal, or else Ross goes.

    Once a valid Petition is finalized, it could be sent to the the top Dolphin reporters at the major newspapers in South Florida and other major cities.

    And then send it on the internet to NFL & ESPN insiders (Adam Schefter, etc.). Twitter. The news would go viral, and be the buzz everywhere ! THAT would definitely get to Ross, who would feel the heat.

    But the Petition would need to be followed-up with other things, as stated previously in this thread. A sustained effort.
    I'm up.

    Good Luck!!! Tannenbaum is so far up Ross' Gluteus Maximus....Hell would have to freeze over, before Ross gets rid of Him. Tannenbaum is wearing Green/White under our Coral/Aqua, and destroying us from within!!! :confused

    Look its simple on my part been a fan a number of years and am very tired of approximately every 3 years or so a new coach, all new players and more loosing seasons since Shula was run out of town by the media and fans. Gase might be that guy if he is able to stick his ego in his pocket but not with tbum at his side. I am tired of the loosing its simple. No I do not need to own the club to change things.

    No - more likely it was Philip Wheeler, Dion Jordan and Dawn Aponte.

    It's easier than that. Just the X millions of dollars you'd have to offer Tannenbaum to quit the Dolphins. So millions, not billions.

    I'm in total agreement with you. This crap win in 3 or else forces coaches to constantly role the damned dice on players, reach for draft picks or trades, and stupid power plays with FO in order to buy time.

    We should give Gase time without a sword hanging over his neck. Let's see what he can do. In this process, we're going to have suffer through down seasons and trading players we like. And at the end, we still might have to start over again. But this constant churn isn't a winning strategy, it's praying that you get lucky.

    I’ll put $20k in too but I want to be the one who fires TBum lol. I would do that **** during a press conference. I’d cut the feed to his mic and tell him to get his fat *** out of the building.
