Ten Signs You're a Veteran Dolphins Fan

Here we go again, Dolphins fans, another season is upon us and you know what that means! Probably pain and suffering! But maybe not! Woo-hooo!?

Outsiders love to poke fun at Miami Marlins crowds and Miami Heat fans that arrive late, but few dare question Miami Dolphins fans loyalty. Dolphins fans are exempt from that narrative for good reason. Before the Miami Heat came around in 1988 the Dolphins were all this town had, so it makes sense that the fandom runs deeper, and their fans get the benefit of the doubt.

So how do you know if you're seasoned tried and true old school Miami Dolphins fan? Let's find out.

1. You still call it Joe Robbie Stadium, because you don't rename things all willy-nilly.
It may be Pro Player Stadium Dolphins Stadium Land Shark Stadium Sun Life Stadium to some, but it will always be Joe Robbie Stadium to old school Dolphins fans. Oh, you're getting used to Sun Life are you? In 2015 the name will once again change, because just a year after Sun Life Financial signed on for the naming rights, they moved out of the United States completely, so it's doubtful they still need to pay to have their name on a stadium in Miami.

2. No matter how many times the New England Patriots kick the Dolphins ass, you'll always hate the Jets so much more. So much more. Like a lot more.
Real Dolphins fans know the true primary enemy will always be the New York Jets. No matter how many times the Patriots win the Super Bowl, with their being all awesome and whatnot, the Jets always suck more. No matter what happens, no matter what name is on the back of those slime-green jerseys, true old school Dolphins fan will always despise the New York Jets more than any other team.

3. You believe the No. 19 is cursed, and any Dolphins player that wears it is doomed.
No Dolphins player since Bernie Kosar has worn No. 19 and succeeded, and it's no longer a coincidence, it's haunting. Doubt it if you want, but diehard Dolphins fans know that number's powers. From Ted Ginn to Brandon Marshall, anyone that puts on that No. 19 is toast. Armon Binns tested the theory last season when he signed with the Dolphins, and promptly tore up his knee, missing the entire season.

4. You remember The Dan Marino Show, and how damn cool it was.
Real O.G. Dolphins fans remember this Zubaz pants and Isotoner glove filled awesomeness. It was taped days before it aired but it didn't matter, because back then we didn't have Twitter to tell us every time a player farts, so it was must-see TV. This show felt more like a Miami Dolphins football game than today's actual Miami Dolphins games do.

5. You remember this logo, and you prefer it to the new Sea World looking garbage thing.
It wasn't pretty, and it looked like absolute shit on a hat, but it was cool to you at the time. Sure, the new logo looks better on a polo shirt, but it doesn't feel very Miami Dolphins, it feels more like you train dolphins for a living.

I call it the Orange Bowl. Only young whippersnappers call it Joe Robbie Stadium.

Come on folks, let's get real, A) We are ALL 'fairweather" fans in South Florida. B) the Dolphins need to change that ridiculous smiling Flipper as their team symbol and replace it with an aggressive, ready to kick ass dolphin, else they will never amount to much.

I've always called it either Joe Robbie or Pro Player. Landshark and Sunlife are stupid names.

Yup. Always did. Always will. RIP Joe. Too bad the family sold you out.

Always will! The man went bankrupt financing that stadium out of his own pockets. It's disgusting to me that the owners since have sold the naming rights and none of the new names have included Joe Robbie's name on the stadium.

The Curse of Joe Robbie. The Dolphins will be insignificant until they revert their stadium to it's rightful name.
