Fins expect looong sellout streak will continue

The last time the Dolphins did not sell out a regular-season home game in time to lift the local TV blackout?

You have to have a looong memory ... or a media guide.

It was October 18, 1998 when the St. Louis Rams came to town and were dispatched 14-0 by the Dolphins.

The Dolphins have sold out 99 consecutive home games on time over 12 seasons since that long-ago game against St. Louis. And, after much hand-wringing and persuading and negotiating even, the team is now hopeful that streak will reach 100 consecutive sellouts that lift the local blackout when the deadline arrives at 1 p.m. Thursday.

The Dolphins believe Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills will be sold out in time to lift the local TV blackout.

If it happens, as expected, it will have come with much work. The team will almost certainly get a guarantee from local station CBS-4. That guarantee will mean the station buys whatever number of unsold seats remain so that the game can be shown locally.

It is a win-win for everyone. The station has on its air what will certainly be the highest-rated show of the week in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale market. The Dolphins get their sellout. And local fans that cannot afford or cannot get out to the game for some other reasons, have an opportunity to watch the game.

Good news for everyone.

God, I love when a plan comes together.

[ALERT: Thursday will be a very busy day. On this blog, you'll get an update from the coordinators, you'll get whatever information comes out of the locker room and you'll get the best of Coach Tony Sparano's presser. On my radio show Armando and the Amigo, we'll have Dolphins defensive end Kendall Langford, Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network, Kansas State basketball coach Frank Martin, ESPN's Mike Wallace for Miami Heat talk, and a special surprise guest. I'll be gassed by the end of the day.]

that was a two year old in my pocket.

THEY BETTER CLEAN THESE REST ROOMS REAL WELL, AS YOU KNOW TOM BRADY AND HIS MIDGETS COMING TO SUPER BOWL .

compared to all these new stadiums or fields, sunlife looks like crap.

"If there is a 1 percent chance then there is a 100 percent chance!"

GO FINS!!!!

I hope sparano doesn't lose to the bills at home. His job should be in jeopardy if that happens

THAT QUOTE THAT KRIS UESES IS FROM ...LIAR,LAIR MOVIE W/ JIM CARRY .

that game scares me.

Dr. Roberts,

I doubt they are speaking as much to the stadium as it is the other newer fields lobbying the League for there shot. Dallas just built that monstrosity, and Phoenix and Houston both have Toaster Over Buildings.

The fact they are having a SB in the Meadowland's is what cracks me up... I attended a Giants game there in October... the wind and just plain atmosphere in that joint sucks. I have no problem saying the teams who play in that Superbowl had better have a running game, it will be cold and windy with a blizzard a real possibility.... so it NOT the stadium, Miami still has a Beautiful venue and it has been renovated very well in the last 10 years... It is league politics at work in that deal...

My cousin Lysine Larry be playin for the Dolphins next yr, he good.

Derek---agreed. Like I said, NFL greed (which knows no bounds).

South Florida and New Orleans have long been the best SB sites. If they're going to remove Joe Robbie from the rotation because it doesn't have a retractable dome, then go ahead. It'd be asinine (and likely a bluff, anyway).

The onlt renovation I really want is to have the seating reconfigured so that it's closer to the field along the sidelines. My understanding is that this has been planned all along once the Marlins depart, anyway.

WHY I FEEL SOME ONE KEEPS RUNNING TO LOOK UNDER THE SINK CABINET TO COME UP W/ALL THESE RELATED CLEAM ITEMS NAMES .

CLEAN ITEMS

The Don should have a talk with his old buddy Jer...whoops I mean Westhoff to get this sorted....

Who seen Dutch Cleanser Jackson play? He on the Chiefs.

Pine-Sol Smith comin' outta college this year, too. He also my cousin.

I don't has a mistress but my cousin Wishbone Willie do, he be playin for the Dolphins next yr, he good.

Dr. Roberts,

In the last meeting I had when I renewed my season tickets, It was shared that Miami intends to extend the lower deck on the Visitor side (which is easy to do since it retracts under the club level anyway) out by as many as 15 rows. These new seats will be offered to the longest term Ticket holders ...or of course the guy with the money when they ask.... On the home side they intend to extend the Permanant seating by 10 rows, this can be done since the heighth of the lower seats is still nearly 10 feet above the field. The entire upgrade should bring the stadium from just over 75K to nearly 78K. They have also spoken of using a Canvas shade Curtain/covering which extends out from the top over the 400 level 100 feet. This will be retractable and will give about 20% more shade to the lower deck in Summer and completely shade the 400 level on the Home side... Visitor 400 level will always have sun in their eyes.
The canvas will be very similar to those believed used on the Roman Colosseum 200 years ago... they will be independently movable and should be a beautiful site from above and much cooler below.

2000 years ago.... Not 200... my mistake.

I don't has a mistress but my cousin Pete "Brillo Pad" Patterson do, he will play for the Dolphins next yr, he good.

My Babays Momma's other babays Daddy's second cuzzin Mr. Muscle be a Dolphin nex year too.

He damn GOOD!

I don't has a mistress either but my cousin Karl "Mr. Kleen" Compton do, he will be playin for Miami next yr, he good!

So do you think the Patty's installed a bunch of low wall urinals so that all of their midgets can peee standing up???

Snausages

PFT post season Awards

Talking about Palamalu and Harrison splitting the vote giving Matthews a chance at Defenseive Player of the Year.

Cam Wake not even mentioned!

Is it just me being biased or should Wake's name be in there somewhere?

BRADY'S MIDGETS;

1-BRANDON TATE AT 5.9'
2-BRANCH AT...........5.8'
3-WOODHEAD...........5.6
4-WES WELKER AT.....5.8'


WHEN MOSS WAS HERE W/PAT IN EVERY PLAY YOU WOULD SEE HIM WAVING HIS HAND TO GET THE BALL BUT W/THESE MIDGETS EVERY ONE WAIT FOR HIS TURN .
MARSHALL DOES THE SAME THING AS MOSS LOOKING FOR THE ALL THE TIME BUT W/25 MILLION GUARANTEED IN HIS CONTRACT WE HAVE TO LIVE W/HIM .

ODIN,
CAMERON WAKE DIDN'T EVEN MAKE IT ON THE FAN PRO BOWL VOTING .

Not long after Vikings quarterback Brett Favre was placed on the inactive list for Monday night’s game against the Giants, Favre’s official web site began selling a signed football commemorating his 297-game streak of starts.

For the low, low price of $499.99.

Aloco is this a good deal?

Put in your order now while supplies last. You'll probably want two, huh?

ODIN,


I LONG FOR THE DAYS WHEN THE WORD (( COMMEMORATING )) MEANT SOME THING , NOT EVEN 5 DOLLARS .I SAW THAT GUY YOU LIKE SO MUSH FROM CHI FROM THE 1970'S HIS JERSEY WAS PRICED AT 75,000 DOLLARS IN THE ENTIUQE SHOW .


ANY THING YOU PRIOR TO 1979 IT DOES HAS VALUE BEFOR THE INTERNET AGE ,ANY THING AFTER THAT IT'S MEATBALL SUB NO MORE .

tdecker77 come to Woody's in Hartford it is a Dolphins bar and as close to the stadium as you can get in CT.

Mike Vicks wants a dog?

” Vick said. “I think it would be a big step for me in the rehabilitation process, I think just to have a pet in my household and to show people that I genuinely care, and my love and my passion for animals.

-I think Jeffery Dahmer said the exact same thing about having a new boyfriend.

Oh wait, bad comparison. Dahmer actually paid for his crime, he was murdered in prison!-

THAT JERSY THAT WAS PRICED AT 75,000 WAS PLD AND IT HAS SWAN CUTS AND DIRTY ,THE GUY SAID ,THEY USE TO FIX THE GERSY AND WASH THE WHOLE SEASON AND THAT'S WHY IT'S ONE OF A KIND .TODAY,DON'T MAKE ME START .

WAS OLD

I AM DESTROYING THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE SINGLED HANDED .

PFT only talks about real football teams. Miami is not on the radar yet. Wake isn't the popular poster boy for the NFL. Has to be somebody that can sell a box of Wheaties. Wake would need to break the single season sack record to even get mentioned.

DEYREDER, that's not fair ,cameron wake is the nfl sack leader ,we not talking any defensive player ,the issue is most if not 80 percent of football fans are dumb and most didn't even finish middle school .M.VICK is number ONE IN THE PRO BOWL BY ABOUT 100,000 VOTES VOTING NOT BRAD WHO HAS A RATTING OF 109.8

Most of you guys talk so much crap is unbelievable. But I guess is allright, you are Dolphins Fans.

Aloco, I agree it isn't fair. Life isn't fair. Why then do you thing PFT didn't mention him?

THIS BLOG WITHOUT DB AND ODIN IS LIKE A MOTHER WHO LOST HER 2 BOYS AND STILL LOOKING FOR THEM .

aloco de donde eres tu? el salvador?

PFT WRITERS LOOKING FOR THE HOT TEAMS , YOU REMEMBER THE JETS WHEN THEY WERE EVERY WHERE IN TV,NFL OR ANY SITE YOU GO TO UJNTILE THEY CRASHED ,YOU DON'T HEAR OF THEM EIHER .


HOT COOL TEAMS;;;;;

PATS
FALCONS
SAINTS
PHI ........................

pan ocha. la vita corta

ALoco,

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz................ DB flips to cool side of pillow......zzzzzzzzzzzzzz........

Yes, thats my point. You can add a few others, but Miami are still the pretenders, so Wake doesn't get fair consideration.

It is NOT the same to watch and hear the Dolphins and Eagle's lines crash shoulder pads. But I guess you have to adapt to the times.

im hoping that by sunday miami is mathematically elimated from the playoff so i can get on with my life and not worry about losers making millions for 16 days work a year, stupid bs.

deytreder ,

PATRICK RAMSY THE EX FIN QB WILL starting on sunday for the vikings .he signed a contract today .

Back from my wisdom teeth extraction. Aloco for dinner tonight. Jello...and a bottle full of 30 milligram oxycodone with MY NAME on it. Life is good.

Derek.. Are you a season ticket holder? Do you get any shot at Super Bowl tickets when the game is held in Miami?

Celts old and slow. Knick are running them straight into the SSI lines. LOL............

Miami Heat are toying with the Cleveland Cavs, allowing them a 3pt halftime lead. We all know the hammer's coming during the 2nd half. LOL...........

I remember when I lived in Dominican Republic that.... and then..... and also... Whew!

I remember the first thing Shula did when he became Coach of the Dolphins was cut Frank Emmanuel(MLB, 1st round pick).

Breaking News:

Dolphins sign Charles Barkley to lead "Im not your role model" campaign.

Rex Ryans say:

"Help, Ive fallen and I cant get up!"

"Is Sal Alosi related to Nancy Pelosi?"

Anyone knows?

I have a looong memory.
