Tuna now sounding definitive about Miami future

Bill Parcells spoke to New York Daily News columnist Gary Myers Friday and, in his most definitive statement about his situation with the Dolphins following the team's sale to Stephen Ross, finally made it clear he intends to remain with the Miami Dolphins in 2009.

"My intention is to do what I've been doing," he said. "I think we will have ample time to figure each other out. I'm very optimistic. I've had two or three meetings with Steve Ross and he seems to be a guy who wants to do things the right way. There will be a period of adjustment. He's got to find out about the business. We are going to try and make things work. I'm not doing this forever."

Parcells, who has a clause in his contract that stipulates he can walk away from the Dolphins in the next 25 days and still collect the entirety of his contract's $9-$12 million still to be paid, also dismissed the notion he wants to rework the deal in exchange for not exercising the stipulation.

"I will never take another dollar from the Dolphins other than what I am earning," he said. "I'm not trying to leverage anything. I got more money than I can spend now."

This is great news for Miami and its fans.

Can we finally put this to rest! This is great news for Dolfans... Turnaround was huge, but we still have work to do. Mando can we stop beating this story to death? Think we are all thinking the worse since Saban lied!

First!

Finally a new post mando!
At least we can put this story to bed.

couple more years of parcells guidance, and the stewardship of jeff and tony after that and we should be contenders for years.

GO FINN!!!!

...as long as our staff does not get raided like other successful teams' have. But I agree good news is good news and as long as Ireland is around (he's young) we should be fine.

there's no definitive thing in the story.if you notice he used a business like talke not his style in fact he said we wil have ample time to figure each other out.ample time to him is next 25 days which ross has to prove that he want's tuna for long time to come and that mean minority owner ship .ross has to show bp he is wanted for more than 25 days.

menace now is your turn .what say you?

I think he made one thing very clear:

This isn't about money, so he could walk whenever he wants- contract stipulation or not.

Allthough I had a 50/50 chance at being right I would like to point out that I've been saying this all along! Parcells wasn't talking to the media about it because he did not start the rumors and speculation. He's a north east guy and eventhough they can be abrasive they always give it to you straight. All of the "why isn't Bill talking about this" BS from the media was agenda driven. The agenda being to sell more newspapers. Just bring up some speculative drama and watch the fans go crazy. The only way Bill was going anywhere was if Ross came in and changed the structure of the team. And people actually gave into the notion that he would make changes that Bill wouldn't like, forcing him out the door. The Petersen thing was just what some of us said it was, a friend hanging out with a friend and feeling caught up in the moment using the word "we". Ross is one of the richest men in the world and he did not accumulate that wealth by making bad business decisions. How can anyone not love the Tuna?! He has a perfect chance to renegotiate his contract and milk more money out of the new owner but instead honors the contract that he signed. That's a real man right there. A man who was brought up right and has deep seeded values that are rare in this day and age. Love me some Tuna! (Mando the tuna helper thing is brilliant and hilarious).

ALERT;SOME BODY SAID QOUTE.'AS LONG OUR GOOD STAFF DOESN'T GET RAIDED LIKE OTHER SUCCESSFUL TEAMS' WE WILL BE FINE AND IRLEND IS STILL YOUNG SO WE WILL BE FINE.LET ME TELL YOU IF TUNA IS NOT HERE THIS GOOD STAFF OF YOURS WOULD BE PLAYING CARDS ALL YEAR.LAST IT'S ABOUT REAL LEADERSHIP NOT FAKE ONES THAT YOU HAD LAST FEW YEARS.
BY MONALIZAAAAAAA

NY SCOTT...IGREE WITH YOU 100 PERCENT BUT ALSO TUNA LEFT NEW ENGLAND MANY YEARS AGO CAUSE CAN'T TRUST OWNERSHIP.SO HERE IT LOOKS THAT ROSST HAS TO DO SOME THING REAL BIG TO MAKE TUNA PART OF DOLPHINES NOT JUST A HIRED PERSON TO FILL A JOB .ONE MORE THING DID YOU ASK YOURSELF WHY TUNA INSISTED ON THAT CLUASE TO SIGN WITH OLD OWNERS?HE KNEW ONCE HE IS WITH FINS THIER VALUE WILL GO UP AND YOU FIGURE THE REST.
BY MONALIZZZZZZAAAAAA

this blog has smart people talking at last.

As I said yesterday when i had lunch with the tuna(he is quite the eater) and looks forward to re-releasing ted(hands of stone)ginn and his clipboard holding daddy and randy crowder back to the wild, he's also looking forward to being abel to go to the race track year round.congrats fin fans.

menace;did you hear that ginn will hire a hand message person to help hime right before catching the football and i heard he is going to allowed to message his hands while he is running.is it true cuban?

Actually, we'd be fine without Parcells this year. Jeff Ireland has a vision and he's already worked with Parcells in Dallas, so his model of a team is consistent with what Parcells would have. Don't get me wrong, another year with BP is awesome but if he goes after next, no biggie. Ireland is a very good talent evaluator. Draft needs, NT, RT (Carey may leave), Center, WR, OLB, ILB (Crowder's gone), CB, Safety(Bell is good but not great). Can we trade for Ed Reed and Haloti Ngata (sp?)??

Ted ( H. O. S) Ginn wont need that in the wild what he needs are sidelines,i also hear the w.w.f is sponsering the release of teddy, his clip board holding daddy and randy. so it should be fun so bring the kids there will be arts and crafts and a petting zoo where you can pet m@@c's mother.

Yes Iraland Has a vision thats why he need glasses.

While his decision is honorable, I am afraid I'd have to take the cash. If I wanted to stay with Miami, then I'd simply sign a new contract. It's business - he'll cut an All Pro and arguably future Hall-Of-Famer to save money. It's just a business decision. I guess I need more money than I can spend to understand his logic.

Dont Worry We'll Muzzle Her So She Wont Bite The Little Ones.

MR BILL ..THE LOGIC IS DOLPHINS MAKES MORE MONEY IF BP STAYES .WHY CAN'T HE MAKES MORE TOO .
BY MONA

plese menace tell us a story about fins history.

i have a Q.should irlend get a raise this year or wait until fins wins a super bowl ?

what about more money for tony and more money foe menace.

They won 2 s.b like 100 years ago, it was so long ago rich. nixon was prez,gas cost $ .25 a gallon, a 6 pack of bud was $.88 , a ounce of bud was 15 dollars, and i wasnt even born, it was a long time ago.

what about marino?was he better than chad.p?

A Time when men with the names like baugh,grange, rockne,nitchkie played the game when they were so tough they didnt even wear cups(they didnt need them they were that tough)they were so tough they didnt even have face masks, or gator aide, they drink water....out of a hose.

aha shanader you weren't first SECOND

They were so tough ,they didnt carry guns like the sissy nannys of todays games do, so tough were they, they'd eat ted ginn and poop him out and make him be the water boy.

So Tough If A Player looked at a child that child wood never be the same, rain would be scared to pool together, yes kiddies these giants of the gridiron were tougher then a 4 dollar steak.

but menace are you sure they were tougher than crowder and henne?

Thanks for the info. Armando, now we don't have to read or hear about it anymore. On to free agency and the draft.

bp leaving any minute now.god bless cuban.

amando thanks for the info.now do you have a clue if tuna staying or leaving.

go fins is better when he sleeps

bungle,you got to be kidding me coming on here after bashing me,mando other posters.go back to the sun-sen,with your little boyfriend ,tin by monaliiiiiiiizzzzzzzzaaaaa

marc is better than go fins

who is bungle boyfried?

go fins or marc

It Was so long ago terry bradshaw had a full head of hair, when waterboarding was a board you used behind a boat, when a hummer was a b.j. not a gas guzzlin vehical. when ed pope was only 23 years old. it was a long time ago.

i think it says tin

menace tell us what tuna should do now.please please please

Yes i think chad henne's nick fat would have been feared back in the golden age of football back in the early 70s.

tin?is it tin tin or tin tan or tin cup?tell us some story shanader about the new pink shorts for fins .how they are selling in stores.

I Think B.p. Should cut off some of his body fat say about 200lbs worth and sell it to the japennese at 50 dollars a ounce. he still would tip the scales at 303 lbs.

cuban you knowledge is amazing of history.can you tell what the future will bring to dolphins next year under the wisdom of tony and irlend.

Tough schdule for the fish reed somewhere where the fish were 40 to 1 to make the playoffs so iam not sure.
