Almost 12 years ago, Major League Soccer announced it was shuttering the financially faltering Miami Fusion.

The year 2013 brought us some of the most unimaginable sports moments ever, and some we wish were only in our imagination. From Ray Allen's Game 6 three pointer to tie Game Six, to a FG snap hitting Brandon Fields square in the face, 2013 had a little bit of everything. Before the New Year rolled ... More >>
Last week, the Dolphins saved their season and maybe a lot of jobs; this week, the Dolphins went back to their Dolphins ways. Today, the team is what the record says -- a below-average group that lacks the proper coaching, players, and toughness to pull off wins once it has the lead. For the third ... More >>
Last week, the Dolphins narrowly escaped with a victory against a very mediocre San Diego Chargers team at a time when our boys needed to catch a break. Unfortunately, this weekend's matchup isn't so beneficial. Cam Newton and the red-hot Panthers ain't no wilting bolts.
Whenever Brendan Riley and Kyle Ramey attend a Dolphins game in their Speedos, the team wins. The two were caught in a viral photo in which Ramey, clad in just a beard and his Speedo, is seen being confronted by a security guard in the stands of Sun Life Stadium. As it turns out, it wasn't the fir ... More >>

Over the past decade, your Miami Dolphins have resembled a resident of Hiroshima that moved to Nagasaki during World War II to escape the likelihood of bombing. "It's probably much nicer and safer over there," your Dolphins say. Inevitably, they're pretty much screwed either way; it's always an emot ... More >>
Today, for better or worse, the Miami market has teams in each of the big four major leagues. It wasn't always that way, though, and besides the Dolphins, Heat, Marlins, and Panthers, several other professional sports teams have called Miami home. In fact, the Magic City's colorful pro spo ... More >>
When it comes to big time sports, Miami is primarily a football team thanks to the long and proud histories of the Miami Dolphins and Hurricanes.

The Dolphins took down the Buffalo Bills 30-23 in a snowy Orchard Park yesterday. Reggie Bush ran for a career-high 203 yards. It was also their first win without Tony Sparano.With just two games left to play, the Fins victory brings their record to 5-9, putting the team on track for yet another ... More >>
As if the Dolphins needed more problems, it appears Chad Henne's shoulder injury is pretty serious. Now multiple reports are claiming the Fins are downright desperate to bring in some new QB blood and have reached out to both David Garrard and Jake Delhomme.
The Miami Dolphins did that thing again where they play like their scrotums are stapled to their thighs, this time losing 26-16 to the San Diego Chargers. In the process, they lost Chad Henne to a shoulder injury, forcing backup Matt Moore to step in and do exactly what Henne's been doing: namely ... More >>

Well, that didn't take long. According to the Oregonian, quarterback Matt Moore has signed a two-year deal with the Miami Dolphins. This pretty much ends any speculation that the Fins would sign a proven QB better than Chad Henne.
Finally a political polling firm has decided to poll on something other than politics. Public Policy Polling surveyed Floridians on another contentious topic: sports. The poll shows LeBron James isn't exactly that popular in his new state, while Florida's favorite pro team is the Tampa Bay Bucc ... More >>
Despite passing a physical with Dolphins physicians and some apparent mutual interest, it seems that Jeremy Shockey won't be suiting up in Orange and Aqua next year.

And so we come to this. Sitting at 4-5, the Miami Dolphins face a must-win situation tonight as take on the equally desperate (and some would say equally craptastic) 4-5 Carolina Panthers.

All the naysayers (me included, often) think the Dolphins' roller coaster 2008 season ought to come with a few caveats: "Yeah, yeah, but Tom Brady was out the entire season... Sure, but the Jets had that old guy... Well, the wildcat won't be as effective next year... Whatever, you had an easy schedu ... More >>
Whatever the outcome, Dhafir Harris does it with no fear.
Continuing our free agent talk from yesterday, we now turn to the offense: Offensive Line The Dolphins released LJ Shelton and Anthony Alabi this week. Which means they're definitely in the market for some beef. Some have said this makes it a sure thing that Parcells will draft Jake Long. Let's no ... More >>
The Dolphins have their new offensive coordinator. 65-year-old Dan Henning has been hired by Bill Parcells to turn the Dolphins' 28th ranked offense around. Oh, he is so fucked. Henning has been around for quite a while. He was even once hired by Don Shula in 1979. He was then fired by Don Shula in ... More >>
