Okay, probably not, but Ross has apparently bid for AEG, "the company intent on building a new pro football stadium in Los Angeles. The development is creating concern that, if Ross isnít able to persuade the local authorities in South Florida to help finance improvements to Sun Life Stadium, Ross could move the Dolphins to L.A.".

Ross has said he has no intention of moving the team, and frankly, I believe it. At the same time, I am curious, would you still root for the Dolphins if they became the Los Angeles Dolphins?

I would, easily, and I'd probably be the first person to get season tickets, seeing as I live in Los Angeles. Then again, as great as it would be for me, I really wouldn't want them to move. IF they did move, I'd love them to come to LA.

Yes, it would be hard, being from Baltimore I was brought up to hate the idea of a team leaving, but I've been a Dolphin fan my whole life and can't imagine following another team the way I do the Dolphins.

I don't know, it would be hard, but I think I could. It would be easier to get to games since the flights to LA from Seattle would be much cheaper than to Miami. Is there any chance that we can move to the NFC as well?

Los Angeles Dolphins just has a bad sound to it.

I could never ever ever ever root for the Los Angeles Dolphins, it would never happen.

LA will be getting a team in the next round of expansion with, San Antonio, Portland , Oklahoma City and Vegas battling for the other team.

I'd wait to see what happens but it would be weird if it happened

If they relocated they'd change the team name. I think they'd have to.

Miami's move to LA would probably turn me into a Bucs fan. I just can't root for a team from LA or NY.

I live in the Tampa Bay area and have tried to convert to the Bucs and just can't...I can't even get to the point where I want to watch them on TV. There is no reason for me not to at least follow what they do...being local I get plenty of info from the Radio.....when I was at USF I saw Warrick Dunn several times out in public and he was one of the nicer athletes I have met, but as far as the team goes....something turns me off....

They could be the Los Angles Dolphins of Miami.

Lame joke. I'll leave.

Out of curiosity, why Tampa and not Jacksonville?

Please note, this is coming from a guy that has only been to Florida twice and both times were to see the Dolphins play. I know nothing about Florida culture.

Id still root for them if they were the dolphins, i dont think i could if they changed the name. Kinda like how browns fans didnt switch to ravens.

It would severely hurt my interest in the NFL tho i would still follow it. My choices would be to convert to a Titans fan since im in Nashville (not happening), or go to my home roots and root for the Redskins or Ravens.

Dont think I could root for another team.

As you say, I don't see it happening. Since he owns the majority of Dolphins stadium and is planning renovations it doesn't make sense for him to uproot the team.

Looks purely like an investment to me.

Yes, I'd still support the Dolphins.
