Oh too bad...little Nicky loses
Now you may ask why I hold such animosity toward this jerk? And the answer is that his leaving was the defining moment. The moment when the dolphins started their descent into irrelevance.
Truth be told it actually started earlier, but until then, there were still "outs" - ways in which the team could still do things right to recover (like say Ricky Williams quitting or 62-7). And they managed to that. They weren't quite there yet.
But when this guy left, the national attention turned to laughing stock at least in part because of other issues that led up to it.
So there ya go. When he left, I realized that he embodies everything that's wrong with this team.
And for me, personally, it changed the way I thought about the direction and overall leadership of the team. They went off course and lost the map and compass.
