The Los Angeles Dolphins? The Palm Beach Dolphins? It’s all being discussed after the team’s plans to renovate Sun Life Stadium using public tax dollars were vanquished by the Florida House last week.
Dolphins’ CEO Mike Dee has been touring radio and television shows in South Florida ever since talking about how the franchise’s future in Miami looks “bleak” at the moment. That all may just be political posturing on Dee’s part, aimed at making sure any future proposed renovation bill will have a greater chance of succeeding.
But the possibility of relocation is still legitimately out there. Especially, whenever Dolphins’ owner Stephen Ross decides to sell the team.
A billionaire with the intention of moving the Dolphins to Los Angeles could look to be the highest bidder whenever Ross decides to sell. If not, moving the team an hour and some change north to Palm Beach County could be discussed as a long-term solution to keeping the Dolphins in South Florida for Ross or the team’s next owner.
Regardless, the Dolphins calling Sun Life Stadium home without future renovations doesn’t appear to be a long-term option.
So what does our readership here at Dolphins Gab make of all this? Do you think the possibility of the Dolphins relocating is realistic? Would you still be a fan if the team moved to Los Angeles?
Would you be upset if they moved up north to Palm Beach? Should the Dolphins change their name from Miami to “Florida” or “Palm Beach” in that event? Discuss all things relocation talk in the comments!
