Miami Dolphins Tickets
Miami Dolphins Tickets - Description
The Miami Dolphins were created as an expansion team in the American Football League in 1966. As with many other AFL teams, the Dolphins joined the NFL when the two leagues merged in 1970. The Dolphins were the first team to appear in three consecutive Super Bowls and won two consecutive championships in 1972 and 1973. The Miami Dolphins are perhaps most famous for having an undefeated regular season record and postseason record for a perfect season in 1972. The majority owner of the Dolphins is Stephen M. Ross, who began compiling a majority share of the team starting in 2008. Since then, Venus and Serena Williams, Marc Anthony, Gloria Estefan and Emilio Estefan, Jennifer Lopez and Fergie have been brought in as minority owners.
Watching the Miami Dolphins
Sun Life Stadium, the home of the Miami Dolphins, is one of the only NFL stadiums to directly border a residential neighborhood. The stadium's food certainly has regional flair and ties to the local culture. Concession stands at Sun Life Stadium offer Cuban sandwiches and other Latin specialties, and the full-service restaurants offer bouillabaisse, lobster bisque and other traditional seafood dishes. The stadium is outfitted with two giant high-definition video boards and an LED ribbon board. Additionally, there are more than 20,000 HD TVs throughout the stadium so fans won't miss a single touchdown.
Miami Dolphins at Sun Life Stadium
The Miami Dolphins began their NFL career at the Orange Bowl, but team founder Joe Robbie insisted that his players deserved better facilities. The Sun Life Stadium was therefore built using private funds in 1987. Robbie's choice to pursue the construction of his stadium was incredibly risky and highly criticized by many; however, the team founder's efforts proved to be successful in the end. Currently, the venue is home to the Miami Dolphins, the Florida Marlins, and the University of Miami Hurricanes, and the stadium's capacity varies depending on its current configuration.
Miami Dolphins 2011 Team Outlook
The Dolphins' strongest asset in 2010 was defense, where the team finished sixth in the league with 4,949 yards allowed. In 2011, the team has the potential to have an even better defensive season. Mike Nolan will be entering his second year as coach, with more experience and more knowledge of the team, and many of the defensive players who were young last year will have become more seasoned. In addition, Jared Odrick, a talented defensive player who spent much of the 2010 season injured, should be returning this season. With the addition of Mark Ingram and Daniel Thomas to bolster the team's offense, the Dolphins could have a solid season this year.
