Miami Dolphins Team Credo Spawns Dueling Fan Credo's

New, comments

As usual a teams motto or credo will spawn fans versions and in the Dolphins case we got two, dueling versions going around.

About a week ago Kevin posted THIS article highlighting not only the new Dolphins credo t-shirt that the players were wearing but the fact that it paralleled that of the US Army's soldiers creed. For those of you that are not aware, or very own Kevin Nogle has spent the better part of his past 50 years on this planet as a part of the Army himself.

So of course as with anything like this it spawns various knock offs. Some fan will always without a doubt go out and take a team motto or credo and make their own version of it for the fans. But in this case we got dueling versions of the credo from two different points of view from the fans.

First up the actual Army Soldiers Credo from which it all began-


I am an American Soldiers

I am a Warrior and a member of a team

I serve the people of the United States, and live the Army Values

I will always place the mission first

I will never accept defeat

I will never quit

I will never leave a fallen comrade

I am disciplined, physically and mentally tough, trained and proficient in my warrior tasks and drills

I always maintain my arms, my equipment, and myself

I am an expert and I am a professional

I stand ready to deploy, engage, and destroy the enemies of the United States of America in close combat

I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life

I am an American Soldier


Next is the Dolphins team version-


I am a Miami Dolphin

I am a warrior and a member of an unbeatable team

I will always place the team first

If I see something-I will say something-I commit to call it as it is

I will develop undying trust with the man to my left and right

I will never accept defeat

I will never quit

I am the change that I want to see in my team

I live respect and truth telling

I am disciplined, physically and mentally tough, and proficient in my position tasks and drills

I am a professional

I am a Miami Dolphin


Next is the first fans take on the credo-


I am a Miami Dol-Fan

I have been a warrior through thick & thin

I will always remain loyal and stand by my team

If I see something-I will say something-I commit to defend our honor

I believe in our players who take the field

I will never accept defeat

I will never lose faith

I am the change that I want to see in our fans

I bleed Aqua and Orange

I am disciplined in supporting my team with true sportsmanship

I am a true fan

I am a Miami Dol-Fan

And finally the second and far less positive take on the fans credo-


I am a Miami Dolphins Fan

I will devote at least three hours every Sunday to my general unhappiness

I will forever remain depressed

I know that it can get worse even if it seems it cannot possibly get worse

I survived the Dave Wannstedt and Cam Cameron Eras

I have somehow not accepted defeat

I will never learn

I believe in Jay Fiedler AJ Feeley Joey Harrington Chad Henne Ryan Tannehill

I drink. I drink so much. This cannot be healthy

I will not let the team do this to me again. I will not let the team do this to me again.

Who am I kidding-of course I will

I am a Miami Dolphins fan
