    What can I say? I like to get my money's worth. If I drop $50+ on a movie that ends up being terrible, what did I just pay for? Popcorn? **** that noise.

    I will say it hasn't happened in a long time because I usually wait before I know what I'm getting myself into.

    The fins haven't been worth my money in years. If more people thought like me there would be more urgency to improve the **** product on the field.

    Yeah, you also probably eat your dinner at a restaurant and then complain that it wasn't up to your specifications.
    I don't even want to discuss that crap any further. :rolleyes:

    No. The only time I ever complain about a meal is if it is unedible (5 times ever maybe?). Or like a few months ago when a piece of gravel made it into my pasta (chipping my tooth) and the cook tried to tell me it was an overcooked nut. $35 pasta. That **** is never gonna fly with me. But I cook 99% of my meals so it is rarely an issue.

    Not gonna sit there and happily pay for crap and question why others aren't doing the same.

    That thought popped into my head earlier. I wondered if anyone else noticed.

    Talk about the last development he expected when he signed.

    Tannenbaum is a fool.

    What I find really interesting is that Darlington as a team culture decision rather than a cap decision. It makes sense since we are absorbing a huge cap his with or without Suh, and this leads me to believe that it was indeed a team culture decision. Suh seemed like he was a class act - he mentored young guys, worked with them on the sidelines during games, and kept out of trouble while he was here. He also put his house on the market weeks ago, so Suh and his agent knew about this a long time ago. Something just smells about this whole thing. I dont think we have all of the details.

    You need to re-read the article NY8123 linked. This move has nothing to do with culture, but money!! Landry and Ajayi were culture cuts!!

    I heard Suh didn't want to do a reconstructure of his deal so he's being cut. At least that's part of it

    Ozzy rules!!

    I wonder how Dawn Aponte is feeling about the person who negotiated all that dead cap money right now? Yeah, either LMAO or "told ya."

    He couldn't impress when he was constantly 1v1, how do you think he'll do double-teamed? LOL, he's not a good player. We simply don't have a solution at DT without Suh. Expect us to draft one in the 1st round, maybe a Vita Vea, who is a heck of a player, but a different style than Suh.

    Because the Fins ate purging themselves of the bad apples. Obviously it’s more culture based than performance based.

    I recall the recent thread calling Suh and Wake and Jones our leaders. Such BS. Suh couldn’t lead to save his life. The Herald talks of “if Suh had guys around him like Bowen’s and JT he would straighten up!” Ridiculous. Where is Wake and Jones in this leadership we need?

    What an utter waste. This should be more than enough to fire Tannenbaum on the spot. If he did this with my money he’d be gone.

    She did a good job of freeing up space for us to sign some stop gap players in positions of need every year. Alas, the the ship had to sink at some point.

    They need to change the team chemistry alright..

    starting at the TOP.

    If Greer is the GM...

    LET HIM BE THE FOCKN GM ALREADY.

    Gase should have a LONG sit down with Ross and they should BOTH show t-bomb the door

    Kind of reminds me of a coach we had for a while with this franchise.

    He won a LOT of ganes. More than anyone else ever has.

    I legit think that Suh got released so that Tannenbaum can *pretend act* like he's being useful and now take some big swings (and whiffs) in the free agent market.

    Suh doesn't bug me, but the Landry situation will keep me in a p'd off mood with the Dolphins prob for decades.

    Became resigned to the fact Suh was going some days ago......too much smoke around.

    Always thought it would be in a trade to the Broncos though!

    I will say that I am very disapointed that Suh was released. IMO he was worth every cent. He was double and triple teamed more often than not, yet our LBers could take advantage of that. That is where the loss of Suh will really show up. If you think we struggled on defence this past season, without Suh, this year will be worse.

    Look at the patriots cap and show me the receiver making 16 million. Hell, show me what Gronk is making.

    Will I miss Landry, absolutely, but he made his decision based on Money being the most important thing. I want to see us build like the patriots. Soldid players all around, but Aside from the QB, no one you care about if you cut them for not doing exactly what the coach asks of them.

    Don't expect quality play from scrubs. Pats system works because they cheat.
    They are wise with their money, but that alone is not enough to be dominant.

    He’s not just making it up. All the crap comes out of the woodwork in time. Suh likely a me player with little leadership. Why is it surprising? Fins trying to change culture. This isn’t performance only. Quite the expensive process.

    We need to stop comparing the Dolphins and the Patriots. We can't offer guaranteed success, nor a HOF calibre QB, or one of the most successful coaches in the history of the game. If we want good players, we have to pay them more, thats pretty much all we can offer now and hope that, at some point, success comes. I'd much rather throw money at a player who has proven to us that they can play for this team than make splashy FA moves to bring in other teams castoffs.

    Its not like we're the only team that has this problem - how many of the Pats players would make a fortune going to other teams, compared to deals they've signed? Gronk could make a fortune if he was released by the Pats, same with all of their receivers, and Brady. But they take less money for the success that comes with that stinking franchise.

    No worries. We will still get to see him twice a year ( God knows it's gonna happen):

    Good post.

    I'm always amused at naive fans trying to peddle "The Patriots" model as the model to replicate.

    The Dolphins aren't the Patriots. They don't have the coach or the quarterback. They aren't good enough to pull the interchangeable parts strategy. They need talent. A lot of it. And they need to pay a premium for it. The Dolphins scouring the market for JAG-like offensive lineman and skill players who are going to "do what they are told", is going have them falling flat on their face.

    Tannenbaum, Grier, and Gase are trying to operate as the "smartest guys in the room", and they are going to fail. Hard.

    I was expecting big changes this off season........but DAMN wtf. I wanted Suh here for at least this season and then worry about this in 2019. The guy is still playing at a high level, seems a waste to cut him right now, hopefully it doesn't happen.

    I just can not get my mind around cutting a guy who is healthy and plays 90 percent of the defensive snaps ,playing at very good level . Yes he may suck in the locker room, every team has cancers. For 22 million dollars in dead cap. This is crazy. If we could find some linebackers behind him maybe he would not be such a cancer. Is Jonathan Martin coaching this team

    Largest dead cap hit in NFL history.

    Your Miami Dolphins did it.
