Won't take long for the usual hoard of unemployed degenerate to sully this good 'ol Phin-fan stomping ground ...

I want a refund for the past few months.

Lol very funny... Funny guy

WELCOME BACK ARMANDO: Thank you for slaving over your computer to deliver us those 10 words.

There is no question that you care deeply about the readers of your blog -- why else would you innundate us with an average of one post every 17 days during the course of the summer.

To that end I HAVE NO DOUBT that you have personally read and annocated all 3100 messageboard postings that have been left on this blog since you last graced us with your (official) presence on June 1st.

But in the off chance you are behind on your reading -- I have posted Cliff Notes summary of the past two months of Dolphins in Depth below.

You're welcome...


June 7th – In a note that would become increasingly ironic as the weeks crawled by – the poster Tom@Jax provides the very first post of the blog: saying

“Armando, you are either addicted or dedicated.”

Outside of this laugher, however, the day progressed well, with most posters actually discussing whether or not seeking Plaxico Burress is good sense.

June 8th – Santonio Holmes, Darryl Dunphy’s tax problems, the speed (or lack of it) of Miami’s WR core, Lots on Lebron James, A couple of valiant posts trying to stick to the topic of Plaxico Buress, Home’s first demented raving about HAARP, ALoco’s and DyingBreed renew their acquaintance.

June 9th -- More on the Lebron/Heat meltdown, DyingBreed leaves so ALoco turns his attention to the Cuban Menace, Odin’s confidence issues, The beginning of a debate on the NFL-worthiness of Terrell Pryor, Oregon Dolphins Fan slanders Odinseye,

June 10th – the day starts off with the unusual event of ALoco incoherently making fun of DyingBreed and goes downhill from there. Lots more on the ongoing Miami Heat meltdown. A couple of trolls decide to take a run at Dan Marino. Justin Credible and ALoco debate the similarities between Martin Luther King and Lebron. Nary a word about Plaxico – but worry not! Armando will be back soon with a new topic.

June 11th – More navel gazing on the ongoing Lebron/Heat meltdown, More ALoco – vs - fake ALoco repartee, Fin4Life valiantly tries (and fails) to return to constructive discussion of the Miami Dolphins. For a nightcap – we get a debate on the journalistic talents of Mike Florio.

June 12th – More on the Heat—capped off by a real-time gnashing of the teeth as the Mavs clinch. Less, howeve on the Dolphins. A particularly self-indulgent day of posts from Odin (or his imposter), ALoco marks the day by accusing Dyingbreed of various war-crimes and speculating on the daily routine of the ‘Gang of Defeat’. Pretty ho-hum day as this board goes.

June 13 – ‘Miami Heat in Depth’ begins and ends with an exhaustive Heat post-mortem. Being a big Dolphins fan I begin to post, even though the board is already more than 10 pages long and Armando is bound to throw a new topic out soon.

June 14 -- ‘Ondvarr Helskinki’ makes a cameo on the blog, ALoco asks us to pray for the Stanley Cup hopes of the Boston Bruins. Oregon Dolphin fan – having gone too long without insulting somebody – channels his inner ALoco and attacks DyingBreed. Fin4Life attempts to play the part of ‘Dolphins in Depth’ wire service and is mocked for it.

June 15th – It’s been a week, so Armando is bound to throw us a bone today right? Justin Credible is furious at the NYPD for how they treat Peurto Ricans, SoiledBottom pleads for help. DyingBreed tries (valiantly) to return the conversation to the Miami Dolphins football team. ALoco (not so valiantly) tries to turn the Board into “Boston Bruins in Depth”.,

June 16th. Oscar Canosa is being Oscar Canosa, SoiledBottom continues his plea for help from Armando, random juvenile gay jokes (always present, but particularly bad on the 16th). This blog is really petering out…good thing Armando will be back soon.

June 17th – Moisture, To mix things up we get some sporadic Miami Dolphin discussion on where Jake Long ranks on the ‘NFL top 100’. Slow day – but, after all it is a discussion board for fans of a football blog that gets updated once per equinox.

June 18th / 19th Hey a Trend! More Dolphins discussion on Chad Pennington’s broadcasting career, Chad Henne’s crappy play and Mike Pouncey’s potential. You know…the kind of stuff that Armando would be posting about if he were not trapped in a Turkish prison.

June 20th: NFLBs shares some of his personal details and, in return for his forthrightness, is inducted by ALoco into the ‘Gang of Defeat’. They are later joined by willis and exchange their views on Ryan Mallet. Justin Credible , fin4Life and yours truly try (valiantly) to return discussion to the Dolphins WR position. Who needs Armando to have good Dolphins discussions? Perhaps a high water mark before the complete degeneration to follow.

June 21—Spillover from the previous day Dolphins QB discussion. Lots of Terrell Pryor talk – with some Joe Montana, Vince Young and Marc Bulger debate sprinkled in for good measure.

June 22 – Armando Salguerro death watch continues. Spillover Terrel Pryor debate. This may shock you – but ALoco believes DyingBreed lives in a trailer.

At 11:32 am blogger darillo stuns us all with the following revelation:
fin4life from what i saw over the last six months, bloggers rarely stay on the blog topic for more than one page, the conversation just drifts anyway. People wait for a new blog but ignore the topic quickly and go back around in circles about all the same topics already discussed a million times here.

I find that very hard to believe…

Naturally, a discourse on racial etymology ensues. Gulf Dolphin closes the day by taking us down Miami Dolphin memory lane.

June 23 – Magic Dolphin Memories – all of them from over 15 years ago. Soiledbottom launches another plea for Salguerro help. I lament about Dolphin lost greatness and earn the ire of GulfDolphin. Some people (Gulf) are apparently very sensitive about what transpires on page 21 of a comment thread of a blog that has been dormant for two-and-a-half weeks. Who knew?

June 24th – Cuban and I muse about the singular incompetence of Dave Wannstedt. We also get an update on ALoco’s breakfast.

June 25th – GulfDolphin and Justin Credible attack Cuban for being pessimistic. A lot of rage in those two. Justin Credible accuses the blog of ‘getting lame’ – only two weeks too late Justin! Dave Wannstedt’s mustcache closes the day by widely accusing all posters of deep moral deviancy…ALoco and Justin Credible agree. Do with that information what you will.

June 26th -- Hey DC Dolfan is briefly back. The ‘wolf, icu, starvation coma’ takes a shot at the fist-pump king. Fidel Castro, Gerbils and Sigmund Freud references. Odin wins the title as the blog’s biggest deviant. Fin4Life and I decide to engage in a real football discussion comparing the personnel acumen of Bobby Bethard and Don Shula.

June 27th – Fin4Life, Wolf and I continue our discussion. It feel good to actually talk about the Miami Dolphins on “Miami Dolphins in Depth”. For his efforts Fin4Life gets nominated as CEO of the ‘Gang of Defeat’ by ALoco. Sadly Odin has a relapse. Out of boredom ALoco attacks DyingBreed who hasn’t posted (as himself) in days.

June 28th – Finally the moment we’ve been waiting for…ALoco updates us on the executive leadership of the ‘Gang of Defeat’ are and the Gang’s membership rules. I’ve been promoted to the position of ‘Gang of Defeat’ secretary. Some poor-ass Crimson Tide fan wanders in spewing garbage about Bama’s chances – forgetting about the fact that the Tide’s coach is a scumbag. Cuban Menace and I compare whose projections for the fins is more realistic. Odin swings by to speak up for the optimists.

June 29th – Armando tries to escape his captors in order to post to the blog but is caught and thrown in solitary before he gets the chance. NostraHOME us provides content instead. Oscar, Odin and Wolf debate who the real power in the Dolphin Draft Room was. ALoco tries (and fails) to pick a fight.

June 30th – What a boring day. Not much happens. Well...the blog has been dormant for over three weeks.

July 1st – Hello ‘buh bye’. Speculation on speculation that the lockout may end soon. My turn to (valiantly) try to return discussion to the Miami Dolphins. ALoco closes the day spurting random trash.

July 2nd – Aloco opens the day spurting random trash. Kris accuses ALoco impersonators of being 95% of the blog. The ritual July 4th mocking of Odinseye’s drinking problem begins.

July 3rd – Some idiot from the ‘Toronto Argonauts’ fanclub swings by. ALoco (in one of his truly funny posts) responds by explaining that his favourite CFL team is the Hamilton Tiger-Cats (an actual CFL team – I checked). More Independence Day foolishness with ALoco accusing the entire Gang of Defeat of living in a trailer. On the plus side, however, we get the first list from Nathaniel Dodsworth – 25 days into the blog.

July 4th – Happy Independence day. To mark the occasion – Aloco posts his projections for the ages and occupations of the entire ‘Gang of Defeat’. Later on ALoco and Fake ALoco get into a fight.

Fin4Life posits the following theory: The funny thing is I believe aloco, fake aloco, lil aloco, the menace, mando ect.... are all one in the same person. I humor them all with feedback but have been of the belief and am not alone that in reality there are maybe 6 or 7 people actually on this blogg including yourself and please a little more creativity with the on sight handle`s, I meen 4673g? really!! the tells are showing a s s h o l e !!

On a personal note – I am impersonated for the first time. Finally… I’ve made it.

July 5th -- Odin admits to a sexual adventure that sounds suspiciously like statutory rape. Pat Tillman vs OJ Simpson Hall of Fame consideration is debated. Statesman/Oregon Dolphin Fan pull themselves away from the DailyKos long enough to begin pushing multiple degenerate left-wing conspiracy theories. We get it guys – you hate George Bush – now go home and play with ALoco. Pages upon pages of juvenile political drivel ensue.

July 6th – God Bless America…George W. Bush and Barrack Obama (or – on an outside chance – their imposters) swing by the blog. So does Rush Limbaugh and Roger Ebert. Darryl Dunphy’s turn to (valiantly) try to return the discussion to the Miami Dolphins. DyingBreed expresses astonishment that people are still posting to the thread. He is not alone. Not surprisingly ALoco is on hand to mark DyingBreed’s return. Evening closes with a lecture from the Cuban on how to you process somebody who is charged with a crime.

July 7th – Odin shares his jail stories. ALoco is intrigued at what other ‘Gang of Defeat’ members have been in prison. The idiotic Dan Henning unites Dolphins nation by giving an interview. Did Dan Marino hang on to long? When/how did personnel authority pass from Parcells to Ireland…all among the Dolphins topics we debate to mark the one month anniversary of Armando’s last post. Statesman returns to bless us with more of his left-wing garbage.

July 8th – A low-water mark. Odinseye and buh-bye trade insults. In a sign of the Apocalypse ALoco (yes ALoco) makes the most serious and relevant Dolphins related post of the day.

July 9th – Returning to form ALoco shares with us the daily agenda for the Gang of Defeat. DyingBreed and Kris stir the pot by looking critically at Marino’s W-L record. ALoco has spring rolls for dinner.

July 10 – Blogger Pat T opens up by asking if Mando got fired. Good question…not that it matters. An day-long engrossing discussion on the best MLB in Dolphins history erupts.

July 11th – Aloco adds ‘Gorilla Island’ to his ‘Gang of Defeat’ monologue. Cuban steps to the plate with a question dear to my heart – ‘Worst Dolphin of all Time’ I nominate everybody ever signed by Dave Wannstedt.

July 12/13 – ALoco expands the ‘Gang of Defeat’. Odinseye (yes Odinseye) decries the intellectual deterioration of the discussion. Nathaniel Dodsworth summarizes his top ALoco moments. The rest of the day sadly degenerates into a discussion of homosexuality, Vikings, and homosexual Vikings.

July 14th – Degenerate gay jokes abound at Odin’s expense. They are neither funny nor clever. You find yourself wishing for ALoco.

July 15th – Rumblings of a revolt from the posters, multiple insults about the Cuban Menace’s intelligence. More ‘Odin is gay’ jokes. ALoco apparently has sources within the CBA negotiations – (or maybe not). Kris is getting angry.

July 16th – Surprise! Still no Armando. Darryl Dunphy and the Cuban Menace decide to have a serious conversation about the Miami Dolphins. Odinseye and Fake Odinseye chime in with Odin (not fake Odin) joining Kris in the Cuban=ALoco(=Armando?) fan club. Kris finally blows his top and lays into ALoco/Fake ALocop/Armando/Menace etc etc. Odinseye finishes the day by defending his use of the blog to share is (fictional?) sexual exploits. ALoco and the Menace have a back-and-forth to end the day – with ALoco posing the reflective question ‘do you think Kris believes we are one person speaking to himself?’ Good solid day of posting.

July 17th – Here’s a debate for you – who is a better coach Bill Bellicek or Brian Daboll – well…after 40 days without Armando – that actually is a topic of conversation on ‘Dolphins in Depth’. Mark Sanchez (or possibly, his imposter) swings by. Secondary debate on circle-jerks. Lovely.

July 18th – A heroic moment from the Cuban Menace – who solicits input on the greatest games in Dolphin history. Reggie Bush talk (god knows why, he sucks). And spot the number of ironies in the following statement:

Posted by: ALoco | July 18, 2011 at 06:27 PM

July 19th – GulfDolphin opens in a rage. ALoco waxes eloquent about Harry potter. Lots of venting about Armando who is supposedly back from his vacation. Will Peyton leave indy?– me and Buh-bye debate

Sorry Bout the triple posts.....

wow this B S armando there is stuff too talka bout the like our salary cap, free agency, etc.

Gary, you have wayyyyyyy too much time on your hands ,,,, WOW lol


Things I'd like to know once you're back on the job:

- Do the Dolphins have any interest in Reggie Bush?
- Would they consider retaining Ricky Williams if it's at a bargain basement price?
- Will QB be the absolute FIRST order of business in FA? If so, who are they looking at (realistically, as Carson Palmer isn't going anywhere)?
- How will the rookies be brought up to speed in a few short weeks? Does Tony plan on doubling up practices, tripling up meetings, keeping everyone in Davie 24-7 for the next 4 weeks?
- I would love to know what Sparano is thinking about strategy this year? Does he see it as make or break for himself? Will he take the handcuffs off Henne? Will he take more chances than last year?
- Will rookie WR playmakers get a chance to play (even if they can't play 20 different positions on special teams)?
- Is the Monday Night opener against NE a MUST WIN????

I need info Mando, I've got the chills, taping my arm for my Dolphins fix. Help a brotha out!!!

DC...are you kidding me?

At his current rate of response, Armando won't get around to answering all of those questions until some time in late 2014!

You must be joking DC!

At his current intrepid pace -- Armando won't be able to answer all of those questions until sometime in late 2014 -- and event that's assuming he cuts-and-pastes for sources.

yo !

2 watt's post is almost as long as Armando's!


You're timing this great, since the negotiations are dragging out to the last minute. Hope you're rested because the next few weeks are going to be crazy.

However, the only thing I want to know is if they have an agreement!


gs,we're both very busy people.lol

Fucrying out loud, it is about time.
I missed you man.

is pk blowing smoke out of his axx about mcnabb?

It sounds like with the new cba the strong teams will stay strong and the weeks teams will stay week. just like our wonderful govt. rich stay rich and the poor stay poor. middle class will move to the poor side just like 7-9, 8-8, 9-7 team will probaly be 4-12, 5-11 some where around there so if your not a pats, steelers, colts fan maybe you should not follow the NFL anymore. Goodell has ruined the only real sport in the world just like BUSH & Obama did..... what is your thoughts on this correlasion?????

TRICKY -- isn't Stephen Ross the second wealthiest owner in the NFL?

Dolphin fans should WELCOME a 'rich get richer' league.

It's alive, it's alive!!
(line from 1931 movie (Frankentein)

Whew! I'm sure glad that the vacation is finally over! I refused to be sucked down into the cesspool of this blog like I did the last couple of years when Mando went on vacation! When you're not here, it's like the monkeys are running the zoo! Welcome back and I hope you're rested up because it's gonna be a wild ride leading into the season.
