Are you ready for some football??

Here we go again!

From the South Florida Business Journal's Oscar Pedro Musibay:
Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross announced Monday that he is prepared to pay half of the $400 million in proposed improvements to Sun Life Stadium, with the rest of the money coming from non-local revenue streams like tourist taxes.

Ross said the changes would create more than 4,000 jobs in South Florida and be ready for the 2015 season. For a fly-through of the new stadium, click here.

"I bought this team because I love this town,” Ross said in a statement. “I went to high school here and built much of my business here. Like most Miamians, I believe no other community in America represents a better destination for blockbuster events. My goal is to secure the future of Miami-Dade and the Dolphins so we can remain a global competitor for sports and entertainment for at least another 25 years.
The Miami Herald also covered the stadium story, which dominated much of the paper's front page.

The prominent play given to the story shoved aside a much more important story of the apparent death of another South Florida child at the hands of the Florida Department of Children & Families.

But, hey! What's more important than our beloved Dolphins?

So...Ladies and Gentlemen...from the folks who helped Jeffrey Loria screw over South Florida's taxpayers and baseball fans...here's Phase One of the Herald's push to ram Stephen Ross's "plan" down our throats.

A plan that will "employ" 4,000 people, turn Miami into "the home of international soccer" and even protect Dolphins fans from the effects of global warming. Something for everyone. What's not to like?

But, if anyone in charge at the Herald had any cojones, here's how today's front page might have looked:

  1. Is this Stadium in Miami Gardens or in Miami Dade County??

  2. Uh, anon1, Miami-Gardens is IN Miami-Dade County. The stadium is in both.
