Down the road a bit

An interesting piece on newly approved partial owner of the Dolphins, Stephen Ross.

"Dolphins' front office, coaching staff won't be affected by Ross

With real-estate mogul Stephen Ross set to take over as the primary owner of the Dolphins after being unanimously confirmed at the league meetings, don't expect major changes to be made in the way the operation runs. Ross is a lifelong Dolphins fan, but we hear that he doesn't want to meddle with the new regime -- specifically, executive VP of football operations Bill Parcells, GM Jeff Ireland and head coach Tony Sparano. Current owner Wayne Huizenga will remain as controlling officer for the coming season, but Ross is expected to assume the role as soon as 2009. "Everyone should feel secure in their jobs," a team source said. "He's not coming in here to make sweeping changes or anything." One thing that Ross does come equipped with is a deep set of pockets. Worth $4.5 billion, according to Forbes magazine as of September 2007, Ross will be the second-wealthiest owner in the league, trailing only the Seahawks' Paul Allen, who's valued at $16.8 billion. What does this mean? Not much, for now. But should the 2010 season commence as an uncapped year, which will happen if the owners opt out of the current Collective Bargaining Agreement in November and fail to come to terms with the players' union on a new CBA, the Dolphins could be attracting boatloads of elite talent."

After rebuilding these next 2 seasons, the 2010 season could potentially be the year we are looking for just a few 'elite' players...and the deeper pockets can't hurt.
