Dolphins for sale, changes on the way
Wayne Huizenga, as frustrated about the team's inability to win even one game as you and me, has talked to various people about pulling out and selling -- for the tidy sum of about $1 Billion.
So what does this mean?
Well, all the talk about whether Cam Cameron should be retained or fired is suddenly moot. A new owner would likely want to hire his new coach.
All the talk about whether the personnel department needs change or revamping, all the talk whether the guys who conducted last year's coaching search should be applauded or flogged is also moot. Again, a new owner means new people in practically every significant post on the team.
Top to bottom.
Some people would no doubt survive an ownership change. Some people deserve to because for all their faults, the Dolphins do have some outstanding people in their ranks. But before the news broke 30 minutes ago -- I was part of the team working on this for five days -- there were a lot more people at the team's training facility feeling a whole lot more secure about their futures than there are now.
Oddly, the people this affects least is the players. Can you believe that?
The guys most responsible for 0-13 aren't really affected by such a mammoth shift within the organization because their footing changes every year regardless of who the owner is. And the owner isn't the guy that makes decisions on their futures anyway.
So the Dolphins are for sale. What a year.
And let me guess: Most of you might be happy that Huizenga would be going. I have to tell you, that's one reason he is likely to sell. Amazing as it is to believe, this man who could buy and sell the state of Idaho, really cares whether he's liked or not in South Florida.
