When you're up against Peyton Manning and the (no longer?) best offensive team in NFL history, the odds might seem slim when it comes to winning the Super Bowl. But not for the Seattle Seahawks. With a final score of 43-8, not even Manning, with his all-time touchdown skills (55 end-zone passes thi ... More >>
Blink ... Now open your eyes. Just like that, the first month of 2014 has come to an end. The weekend madness, parties, and wild shenanigans may fly by as quickly as the last 31 days, but the dollar bills in your pocket won't. Just check out the the ten best music-related things to do under $10 i ... More >>
Every year there is a Super Bowl. Every year, for the past 31 years, the Miami Dolphins have not been in that Super Bowl. So every year we're left deciding what team we're going to nominally root for that night. In fact, over the past few years Riptide has used a highly secret, semi-patented mathe ... More >>
Uncle Luke, the man whose booty-shaking madness made the U.S. Supreme Court stand up for free speech, gets as nasty as he wants to be for Miami New Times. This week, Luke comes to the defense of a controversial NFL player. Richard Sherman is a success story. Born in Compton, California, he didn't l ... More >>
Traitor! Judas! Backstabber! Apparently there is no "305 til' I die (or get fired)" clause in Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra's contract, because Spo gave a big pep talk to the Seattle Seahawks. Well, at least the Dolphins won't be playing the Seahawks this season.
Colin Kaepernick just led the San Francisco 49ers to an NFC championship, but yesterday he had another team on his mind. Last season's breakout QB was spotted wearing a Miami Dolphins hat at a Fourth of July party.
Since we can't all be in New Orleans this weekend cheering on our favorite teams (by the way, are you a Ravens or a 49ers fan?) the party is just going to have to come to us. And, sure, we're under a lot of national humiliation right now with Dan Marino's affair and love child gone public and all ... More >>
There will be bloodshed in New Orleans this Sunday as brother (San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh) battles brother (Baltimore Ravens skipper John Harbaugh) for football supremacy in Super Bowl XLVII. Two white guys move their soldiers on the field of war, and we eat, drink, argue, do the Heisma ... More >>
On Super Bowl Sunday, when the keg is kicked, the wing bones picked dry, the seven-layer dip down to its last tier - you and your guests will be jonesin' for something sweet. And to satisfy those post-game cravings, Sweetness Bakeshop & Cafe is baking up some team-themed, craft beer-infused treats. ... More >>
In yet another bittersweet reminder that despite not having much success lately on the college level, the Miami Hurricanes are still a major NFL pipeline, it turns out that more former 'Canes will playing in the AFC and NFC championship games this weekend than any other school. Which shouldn't be to ... More >>
The Miami Dolphins didn't have the best Christmas week: Despite smothering the Bills on Sunday, they were knocked out of the playoffs yet again when the Bengals later won. But the team can at least take comfort that their holidays weren't nearly as awful as two former Fins stars.Loudmouth linebacker ... More >>
The Miami Dolphins have shown a knack all season for hanging with good teams only to vomit into their own pants when the game is on the line. It happened last week against the Patriots and it happened again yesterday against the 49ers as the Dolphins lost 27-13, despite being a field goal away from ... More >>
So it comes to this: your Miami Dolphins take that loooong west coast flight to face the 8-3 San Francisco 49ers. A few weeks ago this looked like a great matchup: a rising Dolphins team with playoff hopes facing the one-time object of our affection, Jim Harbaugh, and the team he turned us down for. ... More >>
Going into Sunday's contest there was a feeling the Patriots' offense could easily drop 60 points on the Dolphins' atrocious secondary. Instead, Tom Brady had probably his worst game of the season, the defense kept the Fins in it for most of the game and rookie QB Ryan Tannehill had the kind of up-a ... More >>
The Miami Dolphins are 3-3 today in spite of absolutely listless performances by both teams in a boring game, a second straight game of questionable (read: crappy) officiating and the Dolphins only rushing for a total of 20 yards all game. However, the continued influence of Ryan Tannehill's burgeon ... More >>
The Miami Dolphins are in the midst of a resurgence. Their third win Sunday moved them into a first-place tie above the AFC East. While the Dolphins were taking down the St. Louis Rams, fans across the stadium were downing a variety of food selections. From the first ball tossed, someone was tossing ... More >>
For the second week in a row, the Dolphins failed to capitalize on opportunities to close out a game and lost an overtime game they should have won. Given the "Cardiac Cards" moniker Arizona has earned as of late, you had to figure this game would get wild towards the end despite three quarters of r ... More >>
Bloomberg Businessweek recently decided to count down the top 50 best cities in America, and Miami doesn't even make their list.They even based their rankings on attributes like leisure activities (including bars, restaurants, and sports teams), and clean air. So, you'd think we'd at least make it o ... More >>
Let's be honest, this season is not exactly hopeful for your Miami Dolphins. With a rookie quarterback and coming off a 6-10 campaign in 2011, the oddsmakers aren't exactly worried you'll hit the 200-1 sweepstakes that the Dolphins win Super Bowl XLVII. That won't stop belligerent Dolphins fans from ... More >>
The W South Beach has to deal with four angry NFL players. The player have filed four separate lawsuits against the developers of the Residences at W South Beach. All four put down deposits on condos back in 2006 and 2007 but want that money back.
What does a celebrity do when they need a quick jolt of publicity to revive a fading career? Reality TV, of course. What does a sports team desperately in need of some public goodwill and attention do when they're being overshadowed in their own city? Apparently, the exact same thing.The Miami Dolph ... More >>
Quarterback U? Not anymore. It seems Jacory Harris' NFL fate is starting to look like a lot of other recent former University of Miami quarterbacks, as Harris was cut from the Philadelphia Eagles' roster just ten days after having been signed by the team.
The big news on the vegan scene is that Deuce Lutui, the Seattle Seahawks' new guard, has gone (mostly) vegan to get his weight in check (he's dropped 60 pounds since June 2010) and improve his performance on the field. This is just more proof that anyone can benefit from embracing a vegan diet, but ... More >>
Peyton Manning has officially told the Miami Dolphins he won't be suiting up in aqua and orange next season. It's another embarrassing failure for owner Stephen Ross and GM Jeff Ireland, and there's even some suggestions that Manning only took the meeting with the Fins as a favor to Dan Marino. O ...

If you're a DirectTV subscriber in South Florida you haven't been able to see Fox since last weekend. That's because Sunbeam Television Corp., the owners of Fox affiliate WSVN, are locked in a battle with DirectTV over the amount of money the satellite provider pays the station. That means ...

Despite reports that he was "95 percent certain" he was going to take a job with the St. Louis Rams, former Tennessee Titans head coach Jeff Fisher is the subject of reports saying that he's ready to commit to the Miami Dolphins now instead.It's not clear what changed Fisher's mind, or if he has ...

Could the Miami Hurricanes soon be on the hunt for its sixth offensive coordinator since 2005? Quite possibly if the Chicago Bears pursue current OC Jedd Fisch. The team is looking for a new passing game coordinator/quarterbacks coach.
Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said shortly after firing Tony Sparano that he'd be looking for a "young Don Shula." So it sort of surprised us when he went all-in on the pursuit of Jeff Fisher. The man is certainly no young Don Shula. Jeff Fisher is, well, an old Jeff Fisher. So we're not exactly he ... More >>
Most Dolphin fans are still in "Suck for Luck" mode, but with two straight wins under their belt, some members of the team apparently still have playoff hopes alive. Which isn't exactly impossible, just largely improbable. Then again, with a 2-7 record they are only 5 games behind the leaders in the ... More >>
Is Pete Carroll trying to recruit LeBron James? Just days after the Miami Heat stat took to his Twitter to hint that maybe, possibly he was thinking about an NFL career, the Seattle Seahawks coach replied with a custom LeBron jersey.
Even the most passionate Miami Dolphins fans might not remember Alvin Powell. The offensive lineman played only two games for the Fins in 1989 before suddenly resigning. His play on the field wasn't much helped by the fact that he was addicted to crack cocaine. Now the former NFL player has turne ... More >>
Dave Duerson, a former superstar Safety who took four trips to the Pro Bowl and had two Super Bowl rings on his fingers, was found dead in his Miami home last night. So far, though, no cause of death have been given.
Controversial but undeniably talented former Auburn quarterback Cam Newton is taking the unusual step of hosting his own Pro Day in San Francisco today, but will only open the display to the media and not NFL scouts. It's the latest odd PR step in a career that's been full of them, but it apparen ... More >>
Now that the Seattle Seahawks are unsurprisingly out of the playoff race, newly hired Miami Hurricanes offensive coordinator and now former Seahawks QB coach Jedd Fisch will finally get to me Al Golden? Wait, wait, the 'Canes new head coach hired his offensive coordinator without ever actuall ... More >>
Al Golden has said he was going to hire his offensive coordinator from the NFL to guide the Hurricane's traditional pro-style offense, and according to reports he's selected Seattle Seahawks quarterbacks coach Jedd Fisch for the job. The hiring hasn't been made official, but the team's official T ... More >>
The USC Trojans and the Miami Hurricanes aren't that different: private schools in big warm weather cities with a healthy amount of national championships and a sometimes troubling amount of controversy. The big difference is that 'Canes haven't won a national championship since '01, whereas ... More >>
An Arizona Cardinals player's death in Afghanistan was spun into a recruiting tool.
Smiley had a lot of fans in the Bear community (no, not Chicago fans)Local fans of Miami Dolphins guard Justin Smiley are about to be (pun warning) frown-y. He's headed up I95 to the Jacksonville Jaguars. As for what the Dolphins are getting in return, no one seems to know yet. Do the Jags have a ... More >>
The Miami Dolphins entered the NFL draft with a plethora of needs, most notably at outside linebacker, safety, nose tackle and tight end. They spent their first pick on a defensive end, while pulling the ole switch-a-roo on us and moving Randy Starks to the defensive tackle position. PING! Defens ... More >>

via Ed Yourdon/Wiki Commons cc2.0We had such hopes for Ted Ginn Jr., but the guy just didn't live up to them. Hell, we suggested after his game-losing, disastrous performance against the Saints last year the only way he could make it up to the Miami community was by swimming to Cuba and personall ... More >>
The Miami Dolphins have signed a one-year deal with controversial guard Richie Incognito, who was released late last year by the Rams. The deal is worth a little more than $1 million to the player with a suspiciously comic book villain-esque name.The Nebraska grad comes with a bit of baggage and ... More >>
