This is Florida. 2. He Has Really, Really, Ridiculously Filthy-Rich Friends. 3. But, mostly, He Has ... More >>
The Miami Dolphins just recently lost their big-time free agent acquisition, tight end, Dustin Keller, to a horrific injury that tore the ACL, PCL, and MCL in his left knee.

The Miami Dolphins head into EverBank Field in Jacksonville tonight to take on the Jaguars for their second pre-season hoedown of 2013. Last week, against the Cowboys, the Fins looked as bad as a team that calls itself a professional football team could look. And while we know watching this team i ... More >>
Right now Washington D.C. is buzzing about the immigration bill, legislation that could radically change the country's stance on who's in and who's out. The one guy who seems to have put all his political chips on the passage of the legislation is Senator Marco Rubio. And because Rubio is essentiall ... More >>
Mike Florio, who runs the NFL website Pro Football Talk, got into some Twitter beef with the Jacksonville Jaguars mascot, Jaxson de Ville, on Wednesday night.

Will Erin Meehan be the first female ref in the NFL?
I was just thinking the other day that Dave Hyde hadn't seemed to have written anything monumentally soppy or boneheaded in a good long while.

A 2007 Dolphin's offseason retrospective.
