I don’t get caught up when celebrities or athletes pass away when I don’t have any connections to them. BUT this news is a bit shocking. I didn’t agree with coach on his style but it doesn’t matter as his family and the Dolphins family are in sadness today. Coach Sparano, thank you for 2008. We will never forget the “Wild Cat” as short lived as it was. Rest In Peace coach. #tonysparano#miamidolphins#gofins#finsup#RIP
From the streets of New Haven to the NFL, it takes a man of high character and tremendous work ethic to not just get there but to have a 20+ year NFL career takes a very special person. For all of us that were lucky enough to call him coach, he always brought out the best effort in everyone around him because his bar was set incredibly high! Gone way too young. RIP Coach
In memoriam Tony Sparano 1961-2018... Very Sad news former #MiamiDolphins head coach #tonysparano has died at age 56 unexpectedly. R.I.P.
He was known was the coach who turned around the Dolphins from a 1-15 season to AFC East division winner, and unleashed the #wildcat and annihilated the patriots and many other teams following.
This is a photo I snapped ages ago at a training camp,and was right around the time I got more into Football, after watching a miserable 1-15 season , the following season with sparano and Chad Pennington was a great one . Silent fist bumps for Dan Carpenter field goals from all the Miami Dolphins fans

Reportedly, This Policy is much more stricter than the NFL's Policy which still allows you to stay in the Locker room during the Anthem. Also the NFL's policy would fine the team, not the player. I could only assume that was one of the reasons this team policy was instituted. -
To make things clear, these anthem protests ARE NOT TO DISRESPECT THE FLAG! The Purpose was for NFL players to use their Platform as a professional Athlete to make a statement for Police Brutality.
With that being said, I dont think this is the Proper way to Protest for two very Important reasons. Mind you this is just MY opinion
1. NFL is losing ratings due to this matter, which in turn means less money for Players. ---- Players are complaining especially during this summer that they are not getting paid enough especially looking at the type of Contracts NBA free agents have been recieving this summer. Its one thing for a league to manage 400+ Players but it is extremely hard to make over 1,000 NFL players happy. Losing ratings means less income for the NFL, and therefore a domino effect to less compensation for Players. -
2. I believe the Government and Police officials recieve the protest as strongly on the football field compared to a protest at a city hall, or a government building. I think the on-field Protest is blown WAY OUT OF PROPORTION, especially with many people thinking its a protest against the flag. With all the drama and media attention that is surrounded with on-field protest, I just personally believe the message isnt being recieved strong enough. -
However i think for an organization to make a team policy in my estimation isn't necessary. There is a Constitutional right at the end of the day that the organization should at least respect and acknowledge, if the player choses to do that action to "protest". At least the NFL allows you to stay in the locker room during the Anthem, so on their end this is some sort of Leeway. --
