I don't know what is wrong with you South Florida fans. If I lived down there I'd still be at every single Miami Dolphins event, autograph signing, you name it. Heck, I emailed my staff here about a Miami Dolphins event that they invited the sites to next week, and I didn't get any South Florida phinfever staff to even reply a "no" to it to represent the site. You all need to wake up. Whether we are 16-0 or 1-15, this is a new season and the way time flies the season will be over before you know it. Heck, even the forum is deader than at any time that I've seen it since I moved to this new server.
I was disappointed in the way we played last year, too, but I think there is hope for this year. I've said that we could win 9-10 games this year, and you won't see Tannehill pulling a disappearing act as Cutler did last year. The kid has heart.With that said, if any of you South Florida fans who go to these practices wants to post what they see at the practices on the forum, I'll put it on a blog with your name on it. I can't get South Florida phinfeverites to write practice reports any longer here.

I’ve covered close to 30 of these annual Dolphins scrimmages. And Saturday’s was the most disappointing one I’ve witnessed.
Start with the attendance. The Dolphins apparently didn’t do a great job of promoting the scrimmage. The media didn’t do a great job of promoting the scrimmage. And there seems to be little palpable excitement about the Dolphins in South Florida right now.
So about 4,500 showed up to Hard Rock Stadium to watch the team in person. You have to understand admission was free. There were autographs from players afterward. It’s Saturday morning, for goodness sakes.
And did I mention it was free?
Look, I understand the team was 6-10 last season and some fans are wary because the Dolphins got rid of multiple big-name players in the offseason. But there’s approximately 4.2 million people within 80 miles of this stadium, folks.
And fewer than 5K showed.

Other teams get a big response for their camp practices and scrimmage. The Buffalo Bills on Friday night had a reported 20,000 show up for their scrimmage. And the Bills are going to struggle this year.
The Patriots typically get 15,000-plus for their daily camp practices.
The Dolphins have been getting about 1,500.
