Gratuitous 'Fins Posting - Summer Soldiers Division


Down at the Miami Herald, columnists Dan Le Batard and Greg Cote are spreading despair about the upcoming season.

Y'know, I'm getting pretty sick and tired of all the doom n' gloom kvetching, the shoulda, woulda, couldas, the Monday Morning QBing, the prophesies of a 2-win season, etc., etc. It may well all be true, and as Tom Paine wrote, "These are times to try men's souls." But is that the way a real fan is supposed to act? Should we be calling for heads to roll? Should we be writing off the franchise? I don't think so. No, in the face of all the misery over the past years and the uncertainty of Coach Cam's first season, this is the time to dig down deep, to put a brave face on and have some fun with it. Or, as commenter Alex put it over at Cote's column:

Dolfans, assemble! Lend me your ears! We have dealt with all of the negativity we can possibly take. We have been cheated, lied to, and left for dead. But those days have past. No more suffering! It's time to take back our dignity and rightful place among NFL history. We may not be the most talented team, but we have some crazy ass Samoans and a street fighting outside linebacker ready to stomp a mud hole all over New England's preseason Super Bowl parading ass! Long live the aqua and orange...never let them take away your spirit!

Laaaaaaces OUT, Dolfans!!
