Possibly lost in the news last week was this: the NFL told teams that in order to be considered for a future super bowl, the team would have to agree to play in London. And not just "any" game but a prime matchup.
So the dolphins *had* to give up the home game against the jets, which just happens to be a game that regularly packs a crowd at Joe Robbie stadium.
But what I find most interesting about all of this is the financial picture. In short, mr. Ross created a favorable deal to do renovations on the stadium (to say he's paying for it himself is incorrect), the NFL makes it financially attractive for a team to lose a home game (that is, they at least equal what the gate receipts would be, with no costs of running a stadium yourself), and the stadium gets consideration for a future Super Bowl which - despite words from owners to the contrary - makes a nice profit for the owner.
And that means that the owner is all about the bottom line. He's making money and "we" lose a chance to see one of the biggest rivals.
