Dolphins increase in value but Ross still under water

The good news for the Miami Dolphins? Forbes declared today the team increased in value a total of five percent over the past year.

The bad news? The annual valuations of NFL teams as evaluated by Forbes has set the Dolphins value at $1.06 billion ... and that is still less than the reported $1.1 billion owner Stephen Ross paid for the team in January 2009.

Moreover, the club's 36 percent debt to value percentage is the third highest in the NFL behind only the New York Jets and New York Giants who recently took on significant debt after the building of the Met Life Stadium in the Meadowlands.

At 1.06 million in estimated value, the Dolphins rank No. 15 in the NFL. The Dallas Cowboys are the highest valued NFL franchise at $2.1 billion.

In the AFC East, the New England Patriots are valued at $1.635 billion (second-highest in the NFL), the New York Jets are valued at $1.284 billion (6th in the NFL) and the Buffalo Bills are valued at $805 million (No. 29 in the NFL).

One more thing: Don't feel poorly for Ross that this investment still isn't in the black. He's worth $3.1 billion, according to Forbes, which ranks him tied for the 367th richest person in the world. So he's doing fine, thanks.

Hopefully with a less than 50% capacity seating this Yr. Ross will be forced to sell the team.

It would be nice, unfortunately for you and I this is wishful thinking. Ross seems like he's in it for awhile

MiamiD20,

I wonder given Ross has mortgaged some of his NY Real Estate holdings from what I've read on the Dolphins yet owes 36% of the value on a product he over paid for. You figure the CBA rule that 90% of TV revenue has to go into the CAP and owners are forced to turn a profit on stadiums and merchandising, hence the commemorative 72 Fins hat that will be given away at the home opener ect... This team comes out to some 2-4 or worse start and the Stadium will be a graveyard then logic tells you he either goes all in to stimulate interest in his investment or bails out.

This is a game now!

we trade 3 picks for Daniel Thomas then Demarco Murray he was no secret starts to roll Vs. a very solid Giants front 7 to start were he left off, jeez! I really had him in my mock to but in Rd-2 trade back somewhere Darryl D has it. I thought it was either Murray or Mallett really was thrown into left field with Thomas, lets see what he does this Season.

Damn good game now!

Fin4life
I agree Ross will sale the team soon mark my words. He will sale it!

MiamiD20 its Blaine Gabberts Jaquars. And Blackmon is a beast! Stop your lies to support your delusional agenda.

Wait till Forbes sees the empty stadium.

Ryan Cook is the happiest player in the NFL. Man it would have been nice to see Murray in a Dolphin uni

fin4life,

So are we going to this every good game that Murray has? Can I also do this every game that Mallett looks on from the bench? Seems fair, right?

Gabbert's Jaguars, that makes them an even better team. Blackmon has looked like a beast so far you're right, you got me, cause Blain Gabbert, MJD, and Blackmon all make for a more talented team than Miami. Got anything to say for those other teams that are more talented than us?

The problem with saying we blew draft picks is that 31 other teams passed on the sane guy...multiple times. It's easy to say we blew the draft pick in retrospect, but to be fair Murray has made one good run this game. Other than that 40 yard run he's been held in check

We traded up to get Daniel Thomas and could have just drafted Demarco Murray.

WE CANT DRAFT FOR CRAP

WE SUCK SO BAD.

HAHAHAHA

I take that Murray comment back. Didn't realize he had 121 yards this game so far. Where did they come from? Each time I look he was getting only about 3-4 yards a carry


Yeah, yeah, YEAH!

It's a good day to be a Dolphins Fan!

School starts tommorrow, so I'm taking my 15 year old out for some last minute target shooting.

Taking him on his first Goose Hunting Outing next weekend!

Shooting the shyt out of something should off set the Morphine quite well!

ValHalla!!!!

Still waiting for OdinStank to wake up from his afternoon drunk.

Call me crazy but with Terrell Thomas out for the Yr. and Amukamara up in the air it seems to me the Giants would part with one of their 4/3 DL more for a CB.

Ross is rich and getting richer. He will soon realize that Ireland sucks and get rid of him. Give Polian 10 mil a year and he would get the Dolphins back to a respectful franchise. I think only 1 of Ireland's free agent signings has stuck with the team. Pathetic. His drafts have sucked and we are the least talented team in the league. He needs to be held accountable. Ross won't tolerate it. He knows how to run a business. He probably promised Parcells to keep him around. Please don't honor that. Parcells has killed the Fins. I blame him and his little boy Ireland. I hate them both almost as much as Nick Satan and Bellicheat.

So are we going to this every good game that Murray has? Can I also do this every game that Mallett looks on from the bench? Seems fair, right?

Craig M | September 05, 2012 at 11:20 PM

Murray hasn't really had a bad game he's played in yet and to be fair I said I was hoping D.Thomas has a good Yr. but behind a suspect OL D.Murray is eating up a great front 7 in chunks. He was NO SECRET injury issues I suspect are what pushed his stock down but was a Baller in a good College Conf. at Okla. and you'll get your chances in about 3 to 4 when Mallett inherits the thrown.

Sean Smith for a 1st round pick? Desperation mode for Giants, not likely they would actually do that but after this game it seems plausible.

All things being equal how many on here believe Philbin even with his mandate of choir boys cuts his WR for domestic Violence if it were Dez Bryant instead of Chad Johnson??

You guys get old with your repeated statements . Wow !

Posted by: fin4life | September 05, 2012 at 11:42 PM

He wouldn't cut him, that'd be a waste....he'd probably trade him though

No way we trade Smith at this point. Giants will sign Franks on Monday and be fine. Good franchises don't panic. They fill pieces and keep rolling

MiamiD20,

Is Prince A. out for the Yr. as well because if so don't know about a #1 but how about a 4/3 DE which the Giants have in abundance all high paid and JPP reaching Yr. 4 next Yr. being the FA Season along with a pick?

..fin4life..So i went back into the archives to try and find the mocks we all did for the 2011 draft. I couldn't find yours.I do remember though debating Murray with you..(it looks so far as you have won that debate..my issue was injury)

Going back and looking at those mocks was entertaining. We should be glad none of us draft except on the internet..Of course it is much to early to say what a lot of the players each blogger wanted is this or that..I was checking out the players some of us has selected and where we would have took them compaired to where they were actually picked...Not even close..Some of us had some decent foresight. One blogger Wolf ICu actually had our first 2 picks(they were the same Armando offered up in his blog that day..but whatever, he was the only one).. Virgil Green, Tawain Jones, Jerrel Jurrigan..Most had these guys in the top 3 rounds..And of course the Ryan Mallet debate..A doozy!

So when Irescum obtained Brandon Marshall and OchoCinco he had no idea there might be off the field issues? ARE U FRIGGIN KIDDING ME?

He wouldn't cut him, that'd be a waste....he'd probably trade him though

MiamiD20 | September 05, 2012 at 11:45 PM

You really think so? At this point he hasn't proven to be a problem with the team and man he is a baller.

Have you been asleep? Not a problem? So why does the owner draw up a special set of rules for a guy who beats his mommy?


..Kudos to Kevin Ogletree tonight. Way to step up. Hopefully we have a guy that can do the same. Come from out of nowhere and make some plays..Who would have bet if asked before the game tonight if the reciever who had 2 td's and the clutch 3rd and long catch would have been Ogletree?

Darryl Dunphy | September 05, 2012 at 11:47 PM

Darryl,

If you find it you'll notice I had Edmund Gates in Rd-3 he would later be known as Clyde in Miami!

Crutch | September 05, 2012 at 11:50 PM

That blew up in their faces with Pacman Jones who proved overrated. Jones by the way signed T.O. after a suicide attempt from the NFL's resident headcase guaranteeing a 3 Yr. / 30 Mil deal. It's what have you done for me lately in the NFL and if they made a move to cut Dez I promise you'll see a long line of people looking to sign him the following day!

..Fin4life..The beauty of blogging is that we do not have to be responsible for mistakes.......

Only hyper critical..I'm glad I'm not an NFL G.M.

If Philbin followed suit with how he's handled similar players to Bryant I'd say he's traded; you can't cut someone that young with that much talent. Someone (Raiders) would take a flyer on him for a high enough pick (1st, or 2 2nds like the Marshall trade we made). But he wouldn't be cut, Philbin would be fired in a heartbeat.

Maybe Giants would trade unhappy Mathius for Sean Smith, they're in abbundance but that's their strong suit; they would never trade Tuck or JPP. A 1st would be more likely and if Ireland were smart he'd realize the desperation and accept nothing lower than that 1st (even if Smith is worth the same as VDs trade)

..Kudos to Kevin Ogletree tonight. Way to step up. Hopefully we have a guy that can do the same. Come from out of nowhere and make some plays..Who would have bet if asked before the game tonight if the reciever who had 2 td's and the clutch 3rd and long catch would have been Ogletree?

Darryl Dunphy | September 05, 2012 at 11:51 PM

In fairness he was playing against a P.S. player given the Giants 4th and 5th corners were at RCB but none the less it would be nice to see someone step up for us.

MiamiD20 | September 05, 2012 at 11:59 PM

Here I agree with you 100% about the WR situation on the other your right again but maybe Osi and a pick would be doable given he's wanted out of there for sometime. Contract with him would be an issue though just spit balling but the Giants will be on the phone this week with somebody if the Prince is done for sometime given Coy wasn't very good and Terrell's career seems in jeopardy with a 2nd MCL in consecutive Seasons, to bad was a heck of a physical corner who could play Safety as well.

..fin4life..I know that we have nobody on the outside like a Bryant, or Austin to keep the defense busy.. The Crackwagon exploited a weakness in the secondary...Ogletree made the plays when he had an opportunity.

I get what you are saying. My point was that we need someone to catch the ball, make a play when it counts. It would have been easy in the situation for Ogletree to drop a pass, or run a crap route..he didn't. even if he was against a scrub..He made the plays. That is all you can ask.

Only hyper critical..I'm glad I'm not an NFL G.M.

Darryl Dunphy | September 05, 2012 at 11:58 PM

Very true words old friend, very true LOL!

Darryl Dunphy | September 06, 2012 at 12:07 AM

Not debating you here either he could have been a liability out there but came up roses, if only one of our guys could at least get separation even in a broken route.

...I'm out fellas. Have a good night.. Floating the Yellowstone tommorow the fire restrictions are finally lifted. Get to try out my brand new Helio 5 weight. Game on!!

Good night as well and enjoy Darryl!

Yes. Yes Yes, I just LOVE checking out my little boys pecker.

He has his little Friends come for sleep overs!

I think I'll get a spy camera for my Bathroom.

Those adlescent boys just do the trick for me.

PS: Sandusky, keep your head up Bro. Prison can't be all bad, if you know what I mean.

I DO feel sorry for Ross. He owns a team that is covered by a jesus freak closet crotch sniffer in Senor Salguero. I bet Armando is a Paul Ryan guy, too. Sissy.

At 1.06 million??? A little off on the numbers...

Though I do have to admit, my adolescent son has a very large Johnson. As large as my older son. I know, I have seen it myself. He is much larger than the little boys that come by the house with him.

Unfortunately I passed on a bad gene as he was being treated for severe ADHD.

One thing is certain. Most of the blog pollution comes from one sick fook.

Fidel never should have been allowed to release this man from prison. The US should have deported him back.

His own people didn't want him and now we have to deal with him. This man has been riding the charity train long enough.

He will wait until the man dies. If he ever does. And then pitifully declare victory, no?
