Shame on You - Boo Birds

First off I'd like to mention that it seems like this entire season has created a black cloud that is spewing piss down on every one of us fans.  I'm a very positive person but it seems like every time the Dolphins stepped on the field I would feed off other negative fans expectations.  In that case, "you are what you think you are" and it's proven true. 

That's when I stumbled upon this article from that made me realize why this team could suck so bad at home.....


Article from with some of my comments below:


Buffalo Bills defenders heard boos nearly every time they headed to the bench -- a soundtrack for success, because the jeers were directed at the home team.


"Music to our ears," safety Donte Whitner said with a grin (Wow, seriously how can you expect a team to care when opposing teams like playing in our stadium)

"They've been booing the last couple of weeks, so I guess we're used to it," Henne said. "It's a sick feeling for us not to have home-field advantage." (Wow again, the players are now "USED TO IT" meaning they are jaded and don't care about winning for their fans really....sound familiar?)


On a 67-degree December afternoon, the visitors from snowy New York made themselves at home. (Seriously guys, if I could make it to every home game *I live in Denver* I would be there roaring)


"Anytime you get into somebody's stadium and you hear boos from the home crowd, their crowd is actually is working against them, and it's like it's our home crowd," Whitner said. "So we love boo birds when we're on the road." (This coming from the 4-10 Bills;  It's all now making sense as to why the Dolphins seem to play better on the road. When you're on the road it's a "Us against the world mentality" but when you're at home and your fans are booing you off the field, you lose the morale of your entire team.)


With that said......
