The Splash Zone 3/28/17: Stephen Ross Deserves Some Credit, Not Critisism

New, comment

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

The Raiders are heading to Las Vegas and all but one owner voted yes. That happened to be Dolphins owner Stephen Ross. Ross has been against relocation since taking over the Dolphins in 2009. His vote yesterday was for the fans, not money. To back up his stance, just look back to when Ross used $500M+ in private funds to renovate and keep the Dolphins in South Florida. I think Ross earned a ton of fan respect yesterday as the NFL proves they're only about the money.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
