An intriguing 30 minutes with Stephen Ross

It was an interesting 30 minutes or so with Dolphins owner Stephen Ross Thursday.

Aside from the news I told you about first Thursday -- yes, check the previous post on this blog -- a couple of other highlights caught my attention most.

Tops on that list is that Ross obviously wants to win. Like, immediately, if not sooner. That's a good thing in that he's likely to do what is necessary to help Bill Parcells make that happen. But that also comes with high expectations on his part.

And so while some fans are thinking the Dolphins are still in rebuilding mode, Ross is thinking, well, he's thinking Super Bowl.

"I bought it because I want to see the team go to the Super Bowl," he said. "And win the Super Bowl, not go to it. You can go to it because it's going to be here. It's got to be us winning it."

Yes, the next Super Bowl will be played at Margaritaville Landshark Dolphin Stadium and Ross is pumped about the idea his team might do more than be a passive host. He's hoping his team is in it.

"I think it really addresses South Florida with the spotlight," he said. "You become the spotlight of football. The whole area is turned on. We're a reflection of that. Everyone is still thinking of the Miami Dolphins and it's an extension of the season. And everybody is hoping we're going to be the home team. It hasn't happened yet in the NFL but I would like to think this year could be the first time the home team is the site of the Super Bowl."

We'll see.

It is encouraging that Ross, who paid $1.1 billion for the Dolphins, is eager to win while not thinking he should inject himself into the football side of the organization that would bring that about. He told a story of a recent phone conversation with another NFL owner that was cut short when that unnamed owner said he had to run to a draft meeting.

"The absolute wrong place an owner belongs," Ross said.

Ross confirmed what I have reported to you in the past about the Dolphins not changing or tweaking their uniforms in 2009.

"I haven't really looked at that," he said. "There's still tradition ..."

Ross did share the look he likes best is the aqua-green pants and white jersey so you shouldn't be surprised to see that once or twice during the season.

Ross also said he recognizes the Marlins need to play at Dolphin Stadium in 2011 because their new stadium will not be open by that season as earlier anticipated.

"What am I going to do, say all of a sudden they can't play there? We're not going to squeeze them or anything like that."

Davis and maualuge are both punks. They need babysitters to watch over them.

yeeeessssss, im tellin you lito, with what i see local the draft game's a swap meet.

how you guys think about hicks ,is he going to be there at 25? i doubt it, even crabtree is not going to be there at 9.some people think that even sanchez will be gone at 9

dude,? jaksin's friend, you out there?.

yes, i am , bty, i don't want you to leave like you did last night and you left me alone

Yeeeeessss it's new comer. i'm so full of food ( lamb, ETC ) , i can't think straight.

just the talk round here, with the sanchez thing. insanity. that his name is floating, floored.

in cleve.

the cleve will pick sanchez, for sure and crabtree was their other opation at 9 but he's not going to be there ,he will be picked at 5 or 6 and that makes it easy for the browns to get sanchez at 9,it's crazy and nicks will never be there for fins at 25 also. bty buglito what did you have for drink tonight?

Ouzo !

easy for you to say.

what's easy for you to say ? Is it azzzzzzzzzzzz ?

what else have you got? man, be glad i breeze trough here. see you at the kottonmouth site, the real jaksin. i mean ha!

This is why poor Armando is stuck writing about uniform changes. Because any time there is a reference to uniforms, every homo (not that there's anything wrong with that) online comments on the article. Reporters cover the things that interest people most. if you want to hear more about the draft, comment on those articles and leave the uniform ones alone. No matter how tempting it is to say that you'd like to see the team wear pink and fushia nighties.

uniforms should to a better design in color and size, it should include new colors to invite new fans to come to the game to make more money for the team and the color purple and yellow will do that.
