Our Miami Dolphins might have lost their opening game to the Seattle Seahawks this past Sunday, but Miami does lead the league in one all-important category: Player protests by a single team.
By most accounts, the four Dolphins players were the most players exhibiting protests on a single team in the entire league.
I guess protests are important. One of the Dolphin players who protested before the game, Kenny Stills, was probably thinking about how well his pre-game protest went that he forgot to catch a perfectly thrown pass which would have resulted in a touchdown, and that would have been enough points to win the game. Instead, it's another loss for the Dolphins.
After all, who needs to catch the ball anyway? Teams that are in first place for players participating in protests don't need to worry about trivial things like catching touchdown passes, and winning football games.
Never miss a local story.
Where's Don Shula when you need him? This never would have happened on his watch.
