As you may know Dolfans NYC brings a huge group of Phins fans to the NFL Draft every year. It’s a great chance to hang out with our club in the off season, meet new local Phins fans and help protect out of towners from these asshole Jets fans. This year we made a video and it features some interviews with fan club members, Jets taunting and a clip of us on the NFL Network when Tannehill was picked. It’s a pretty cool video and the first video I have shot with my new camera the Nikon D800. Enjoy!

Hey Dolfans! Just got back from an amazing week in Miami where I got to see our Dolphins embarrass the Raiders in epic fashion live and in person. Michelle and I represented very hard for you guys down there and met a lot of hardcore Dolfans in the process. I will have a bunch of pictures up soon but in the mean time I wanted to share with you a video I taped of Keith Simms giving our club a shout out at Bokamper’s Plantation before a taping of the Finsiders. Thanks a bunch Keith! Go Dolphins!
I am headed down to Miami tomorrow to work some photo gigs during Miami Art Week but way more important than making a living will be getting to hit up Sun Life Stadium for the second time this year so I can watch my Dolphins play the Raiders of Oakland. I am pretty psyched for the game.
Last time I was in Miami I had a chance to head down to Bokamper’s in Plantation for a live taping of The Finsiders where I got to meet Dolphins greats Sam Madison and Keith Simms. Sam is one of my favorite players of all time and played for the Giants so he knows what it’s like to live in the area so I had to ask him for a Dolfans NYC shout out. As always number 29 delivered.
Check out the video below and make sure you check out the podcast we did with Sam we recorded the next day!
Football is back! Free agency starts at 6pm on Friday but players can talk to teams as soon as 10am tomorrow morning. I hope you guys are as excited as I am about getting back to football. I know the Dolphins are. They are asking Dolphins fans to set this image as their Facebook avatar to get everyone excited about the new season. They also put up a Back To Football website and shared with us this video. It may mostly be a promotional tool to sell season tickets, but it sure gets me pumped. Let’s go Dolphins!
Please join for a memorial service for the 2010 Miami Dolphins at Third and Long this Sunday at 1PM Eastern Standard Time.Â Join your fellow Dolphins fans and drink a toast to a severely mediocre Dolphins team that excited us at times but mostly just disappointed. Even in defeat at Third & Long we have each other to take solace in and this Sunday is the perfect time to say goodbye to you fellow Dolfans NYC members before we make our separate ways for the off season… besides we could beat the fucking Patriots.
Seriously.Â The Patriots will probably play their guys most of the game because they hate losing.Â They have no reason to play anyone so maybe we will get lucky, but honestly lucky has nothing to do with it.Â The Dolphins play to the teams that play them. The Patriots are the best team in the NFL so if only for a Sunday I have a feeling the Dolphins will play pretty well too.Â We have only lost one game on the road and we ALWAYS give the Patriots fits.Â Honestly, even though we got killed by them this year, we really outplayed them on offense and defense.Â Tragically our special teams had the worst game in history and then Henne threw a garbage time pick six.Â Otherwise that game would have been very, very close.
So come out this Sunday, say goodbye to all the friends you have met this year and let’s root for our team like the quality Dolphins fans we are.
Our boy Solo D knows what’s up… check out his new track “Finish Strong”:
Just a few more notes on tomorrows game…
It is going to rain tomorrow. If you are tailgating with us, if you have any sort of tent or covering you can bring please do! We will be doing the tailgate rain or shine but if the rain is really bad we might park in a near by parking garage.
Also remember we will have some food and and some booze but we are looking at probably 100 people for this thing assuming the weather isn’t horrible so we need everyone to bring your own food and booze if you can. If anyone has a grill or any of the normal tailgating stuff bring it. We can’t have too much stuff.
One thing we will have at the tailgate will be Orange Miami Dolphins Rally towels. We had the Dolphins send us a box of 50 towels that they were giving out at the last Jets game. We will be giving them out to anyone who bought tickets with us and hopefully we can fly those Orange towels all day.
If you are planning on tailgating with us and have not done so already email DolfansNYC@Gmail.com with your contact info. We will be emailing everyone as soon as we park and know where we are going to be. We are planning on being there between 11 and 11:30. If you can’t get email on your phone give us your phone number and we will text you. We will also be updating the @dolfansnyc Twitter and updating the Facebook group as soon as we park.
Now, very important. I know with the weather and the Dolphins record some people are trying to get rid of tickets. If you bought your tickets with us you are with a group of Dolphins fans. Do NOT sell your tickets to stub hub or let them fall into Jets fans hands. That would be really unfair to the rest of the group. People bought these not so great 300 level tickets so they could be surrounded by Dolphins fans, people want support in enemy territory. If you have extra tickets please post a message on the Facebook group. If anyone needs tickets, please check the Facebook group. Hopefully we can figure this out.
AGAIN… If you need tickets, please check the Facebook group! Someone will be able to help!
And finally… I just wanted you guys to check out this song by a Miami rapper named Solo D. He writes a song every week about the Dolphins upcoming opponent. His song about the Jets game is amazing. We have already hit him up about doing an official Dolfans NYC song.
Can’t wait until we take over Giants Stadium tomorrow. Go Dolphins!
â€œWhatâ€™s Your Fantasyâ€ is here to get you set for Week 7. As always, I break down the players to start, bench, and think about for your lineup. This week, I finally get to shave my beard (hoorah!), recommend playing a Steeler against the Dolphins (boooo!), and answer a question sent in by a loyal viewer. As always, weâ€™ve got music and a touch of humor for your viewing pleasure. Go Fins!!
Hey guys! I hope you enjoyed the break from football as much as I did. After having my heart broken two weeks in a row I have pretty much avoided everything Dolphins for a while. I just couldn’t take it. But I am officially back on board.
The Dolphins are 2-0 on the road and ready to make it 3-0 against a banged up Packers. It looks like Aaron Rodgers is going to play but Clay Matthews is doubtful and Woodson has a toe injury which is never a good injury for a DB to have. On the Dolphins side we are the healthiest we have been all year coming off the bye week. Looks like Odrick is still out, but we finally get Crowder back and John Jerry is at least going to be worked in. If the Dolphins can hit Rodgers early (and Cam Wake should have a day with RT Mark Tauscher doubtful) I think they have a pretty good chance of taking the upset and getting back on track. And I pray they do because I can not take three straight losses. We need this game.
I am excited to see everyone at Third & Long (35th and 3rd Ave) this week. We should have a little more room to move around at the bar this week since it is not a big division game, but I hope to see the place pretty packed anyway. I know that anyone who can manage to be a Phins fan in the middle of Jests country can’t possibly be a fair weather fan. We aren’t doing a raffle or anything this week, but we still have drink specials if you are wearing Dolphins colors and as always we will have sound and the game on more than half the TV’s in the bar.
I can’t wait! Go Dolphins!
Weâ€™re going to pretend Monday night didn’t happen and move on withÂ â€œWhatâ€™s Your Fantasyâ€ for Week 5.Â As always, I break down the players to start, bench, and think about for your lineup.Â Â This week, I recommend benching the league’s leading passer –Â the same guy whoÂ couldn’t beat out Rex Grossman for a starting job not too long ago, by the wayÂ — and picking upÂ aÂ must-own playerÂ in the aftermath of theÂ Randy Moss trade.Â As always, weâ€™ve got musicÂ and a touch of humor for your viewing pleasure. Â Go Fins!!
The Dolphins only play on Monday Night Football once this year, and it happens this Monday. Get excited people, it’s our first crack at the New England Patriots.
Last week was a disaster at least our offense came to play. If the Dolphins offense plays like it did last week we should be able to put 50 points on the Patriots. Unfortunately the Patriots offense has two things the Dolphins have proved they can’t stop… Tight Ends.
The Patriots have two fantastic pass catching tight ends and I have to admit I am pretty worried about how we are going to stop them. That being said we are historically pretty good at home against the Patriots and we have to come up big in prime time, especially after last week. We must win this game.
Now a few important things. We will be at Third & Long as always watching the game. For those who haven’t been yet, it’s at 35th and 3rd Ave in the city.
Come early! We have had a little bit of a line at times. Everyone get’s in but you might have to wait a little bit. If you get there 30 minutes early you won’t have a problem. Third and Long has good MNF drink specials so they have a bit of a regular crowd there, so we gotta get there early and make sure we have the whole place to ourselves.
We WILL be doing a raffle this week. I know I promised a raffle last week but Michelle was out of town and we didn’t get it together in time. We will be raffling off a Dolphins hat signed by Dolphins owner Stephen Ross as well as a really nice Dolphins jacket that he gave us. We will also probably have a bar tab do give away and a Dolfans NYC shirt.
Speaking of shirts, we ran out of L and XL shirts so fast that we haven’t really been selling them the last couple weeks, but I got new shirts printed and we should have every size available. They are 15 dollars and are aqua with the DolfansNYC logo on them.
Lastly, I just wanted to mention the tickets to the Jets game. If you have talked to Michelle about buying tickets, please bring your money on Monday. She put 36 tickets on her credit card and needs to start collecting money. We want to order more tickets as well, so if you want to go with us to the Jets/Dolphins game in NYC, email Michelle ASAP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Okay! See you Monday and remember almost all the money raised from the raffle and the t-shirts goes to the Miami Dolphins Foundation charity. The only money that doesn’t go to charity goes to club expenses like printing shirts, promoting the club and prizes for the raffles. So please, be generous. And if you would like to just donate money please let us know. We are trying to raise $1500 as a group. Thanks!
