It is ridiculous that these franchises can hold taxpayers to ransom.

The straw clutching in that article is also ridiculous.

I don't see the Dolphins relocating to LA. But if they don't get their stadium done, and Ross sells to the 'right/wrong' person, then they could move. Though I think the big stumbling block to get over would be persuading the nfl to allow one of its iconic franchises to move. Personally I'd like them to stay, but you never know.

After Jefferey Loria and the Miami Marlins stadium fiasco im not surprised that Miami politicians dont want to give into a sports teams request for tax payers money to improve their stadium.

Or Dolphins and Chiefs just switch division. The Chiefs are one of the original AFL teams and the AFC Championship trophy was named after Lamar Hunt.

Rams need to be in the Central somewhere. Nowhere near the West coast.

Dolphins? Are they still going?

Look forward to us being constantly linked to LA along with the others for years, we just need to wait a bit of time because the fiasco with the Marlins stadium is still fresh in the memory.

Would have to go to court, NFL wouldn't approve a move.

I would hate it if this happened. The dolphins were a major part of ny childhood nfl experience and imo a important historical franchise they should stay in miami
