Dolphins become the new poster boys of bad behavior

In Tuesday’s edition of PFT Daily, we suggested that the league’s Personal Conduct Policy is working.

And it very well may be, in every city but Miami.

Alex Marvez, who covered the Dolphins for the South Florida Sun-Sentinel before joining FOXSports.com, has penned (or at least typed) a scathing indictment of a man who has sworn off “thugs and hoodlum,” even as he now harbors plenty of them.

This team is oilier than the Gulf of Mexico,” Marvez concludes.

Yes, Steelers fans, your team is off the hook.  The Dolphins are now the kings of the police blotter.  To make matters worse, the franchise has treated the four arrests since the end of the 2009 season like the gift Fido left on the floor that no one wants to notice for fear of having to clean it up. 

Meanwhile, ownership also is ignoring the pile of Tuna surprise that is slowly staining the carpet.

As Marvez points out, the fact that defensive end Philip Merling, the team’s most recent criminal defendant, faces allegations of violence against women should prompt some of the women who own a slice of the team — including Gloria Estefan, Fergie, and Venus and Serena Williams — to take a stand.

The team’s refusal to hold misbehaving players accountable is somewhat understandable, given that there’s currently no real consequence for having turds on the team, apart from a fine that’s triggered when the second player in any given year is suspended.  As we’ve said many times in the past, NFL teams will take this situation seriously only when violations of the Personal Conduct Policy by players result in a forfeiture of draft picks.

If the league were to adopt a rule like that, there would instantly be no thugs and hoodlums in Miami.

    and another stupid article by dwight schrute……..booooo

  2. hamburglar says: Jun 1, 2010 9:44 PM

    No team has more criminal behavior then the Pittsburgh Steelers. It’s not even close.

  3. Jon Evans says: Jun 1, 2010 9:45 PM

    I don’t see him found guilty of anything yet. On that note, Thats what the law system is for.. and as everyone knows, the media can turn a bruise left pinky into a 20 man beat down.

  4. E.A.D. says: Jun 1, 2010 9:45 PM

    F**K Marvez; he sucked when he was in Miami and he sucks now…
    Plenty of other teams have players breaking the law, it’s a league wide problem that stems from making millionaires out of thugs and hoodlums. If the league were to adopt a rule like that there would instantly be no thugs and hoodlums on any teams and NFL fans would be crying about the lack of talent in the NFL…

  5. Ihatesteelerfans says: Jun 1, 2010 9:47 PM

    Weird it didn’t take you long to let the steelers off the hook, but I bet we will hear oh so many bengals comments.

  6. FinfanJim says: Jun 1, 2010 9:48 PM

    And yet technically you can’t discipline by waiving players. So WTF do you want the Dolphins to do? Maybe they’re planning on weeding out these turds during camp without NFLPA retribution…

  7. You love to hate the JETS says: Jun 1, 2010 9:50 PM

    LOL all the dolphin fans say that all the dirt goes to new york… just take a look in ur own backyard!!!!

  8. bigfog says: Jun 1, 2010 9:50 PM

    Can you point to more than one example besides Merling? Just curious Florio.

  9. rayray1284 says: Jun 1, 2010 9:51 PM

    “This team is oilier than the Gulf of Mexico,”
    WOW thats a low blow there. comparing them to one of the worst disasters of all time. might be insulted if i was one of the people that lived down there or when the gas prices hit $5 a gallon

  10. Pakman says: Jun 1, 2010 9:53 PM

    No, Florio, the Stealers are still the turds of the league.
    Even if Merling is found guilty, at least he’s not a sexual predator.

  11. kazkal says: Jun 1, 2010 9:56 PM

    Steelers off the hook people still ripping the bengals for 2006

  12. DevastationInc says: Jun 1, 2010 9:56 PM

  13. cnelson13 says: Jun 1, 2010 9:56 PM

    Punishing teams for player conduct off the field is the worst idea ever.

  14. pramis123 says: Jun 1, 2010 9:57 PM

    Please, to compare the Dolphins with the Steelers is a total JOKE. The Steelers have had some of the worst criminal behavior in the league history that has brought more bad national press than all of the Dolphins issues combined except of course for the stupid draft question to Dez. Heck, if anyone wants to take a shot at the Phins, just stay focused on the Dez comment, but to focus on the arrest is crazy as most have had charges dropped or reduced. Obviously, not condoning any of it, but I guess its a slow news day when this is a national story.

  20. Rockyroads says: Jun 1, 2010 10:16 PM

    Well heres my 2 cents. I dont believe that any team should bloose draft picks for a single indivisual. They can do everything right and still have no control what a player does. The blame should be solely on the player. Contract clauses that HURT THE PLAYER WHERE IT COUNTS MOST, even the guarentee money should not be safe. I would say a third of a years salary, dont worry they wont starve.. however, I think you would see alot less stupid behavior.

  21. hamburglar says: Jun 1, 2010 10:17 PM

    The thing that got lost here is that Dez Bryant’s mother WAS a prostitute.

  22. Chapnasty2 says: Jun 1, 2010 10:20 PM

    Until they have a fat QB get away with multiple sexual assautls and douchebaggery they aren’t even close.

  23. promichael says: Jun 1, 2010 10:25 PM

    Florio your passion to spin a story against Bill Parcells has reached a new low. Let’s see how low you can go. Should big Bill be arrested for allowing thugs and hoodlums on the Miami Dolphins. Someone has to lead the league in DUI arrests! Why not the Dolphins. The next time Ronnie Brown walks into a liquor store, certainly (MADD) Mother’s Against Drunk Drivers should be there to protest. Ronnie Brown is a hoodlum,
    thug and a drunk (sarcasm). Florio did you ever make a mistake at 26 years old. Regarding Phillip Merling, he is a low life jerk for what he did and I hope an offensive lineman knocks him out during the season. However Florio to go after Parcells every chance you get is just stupid.

  24. Mean D says: Jun 1, 2010 10:27 PM

    The Big Tuna loves the turds – ever since the REAL L.T.

    Wow, four years after the Bengals legal issues, they still can’t get you off their backs. 6 months after the Steelers legal issues, you’re ready to forgive and forget. That’s completely unbiased reporting.

  30. bigalc33 says: Jun 1, 2010 10:39 PM

    gotta love writers who provoke sales of their piece and folks like us to comment.
    It’s amazing how we jump to conclusions regarding folks making more money than most of us…
    who cares! all I want to see is my team win on sunday…its called entertainment…if we continue to show that we care when a player pisses on a side walk or gets pulled over for something 90% of all adults do when they stop off for happy hour…then we sill continue to hear haters like Marvez…

  31. oyoy84 says: Jun 1, 2010 10:40 PM

    Give me a break Florio. We all know you’re a die hard Steeler fan and your scum bag team full of rapists, wife beaters, and crack heads are far from “off the hook”. Kings of police blotter as you put it is still in Shittsburgh.

  32. BeaverThomas says: Jun 1, 2010 10:40 PM

    Thank you FLORIO……..
    You managed, somehow, to go through at least 4 paragraphs (plus several sentences) without mentioning my Cincinnati Bengals.
    Yes, there is potential for disaster with Pacman among others, but I think they remain off of the Police Blotter for the whole season.
    ………….Okay, I am talking about the 53 man roster now….excluding the Practice Squad. :-)

  33. JetsAreAJoke says: Jun 1, 2010 10:41 PM

    If all teams released every player from every team that off-the-field issues, they’d be called the UFL.

  34. JetsAreAJoke says: Jun 1, 2010 10:45 PM

    @deederbob
    Will you come back here and tell everyone how totally stupid your “guarantee” was if he doesn’t get suspended before Game 1? Or are you just making an idiotic comment to get attention for yourself because no one cares about you?

  35. allday28 says: Jun 1, 2010 10:49 PM

    Mr. Marvez is so sensitive to most of my family losing their jobs as a result of the oil spill. Glad he could compare their situation to the Dolphins.

    This is awful! I guess Rape is quickly forgivable n forgetable.
    What Merlins did was horrible and they’re letting it playout thru the legal system and will do everything the league orders them to do.
    Must be a slow day of passing on second hand news for PFT lmao.

  42. RighteousJams says: Jun 1, 2010 11:17 PM

    As terrible as domestic violence is, Merling didn’t go to trial, so he isn’t guilty of anything. Even is he is guilty that isn’t as bad as being a lawyer.

    Well, I am not a Dolphin or Steeler fan, but to start there is the continued accusations (plural) of women accusing the Steelers’ starting quarterback of sexual assault. But as far as actual arrest/conviction numbers I am not sure.

  44. IStateYourName says: Jun 1, 2010 11:41 PM

    And Turd Watch becomes poster boy for stupid ideas of changes to make. Florio probably still drinks New Coke.
    If there were Turd Watch STANDINGS like there used to be, maybe we could see the Dolphins were racking up more points than the Steelers whose QB ain’t got arrested for nuthin anyway.
    But keep posting the so and so team is more Turdy than the Steelers stories, I think its catching on.

  45. lifelongphinfan says: Jun 2, 2010 12:13 AM

    florio- you must love all the bashing you take on this site because you keep writing one stupid ass thing after another. and it shouldn’t surprise me at all considering you are/were an attorney and anyone paying attention to anything can see that the legal system in this nation is responsible for 90% of this nations problems and now they got you trying to f-up sports reporting -no check that you ARE f n up sports reporting .whoever it was that first told the joke of what do you call 50 lawyers atthe bottom of the ocean?- a good start.
    would have got more laughs from it if it wern’t so true and they should put you first in line because YOU SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  55. LeeB says: Jun 2, 2010 1:31 AM

    Hey Florio, what’s up with all these Dolphins stories. Remember how ’911′ knocked Gary Condit and Chandra Levy out of the news cycle. Seems to me you imagine the Dolphins as the ’911′ to your Steelers.
    Do you really believed Phillip Merling did something extraordinarily unique. I don’t condone what he did one bit. I do however believe that these athletes should be more selective and choose their women carefully. Yes, I am blaming the women for some of this behavior, they are not so innocent in some cases and we still don’t know what happened with Merling. These women know the neantherthals NFLers can’t help themselves.
    Bill Parcells should develop a new philosophy.
    ”’Sleep with the women then move on, and don’t forget the industrial strength trojans.”’ It’s too for Merling now.
    I do think Merling will survive this once the GF realizes the gravy train will come to an screeching end if she pursues charges, and we all know she does not want to end up in the streets. The unfortunate truth.

  56. Ripp says: Jun 2, 2010 1:33 AM

    Now I am not making light of drunk driving but I would bet the farm that Marvez has driven a vehicle when he was not in the condition to be driving. It dose not make it right but you don’t call a apple a bad apple just because one blemish. Ronnie Brown has done a world of good and he used poor judgement when he decided to drive under the influence, there is no doubt about that. Dose that make him a hoodlum or a thug? I think Marvez needs to look in the mirror before casting the 1st stone.
    If Marvez wanted to do some good he should use his connections to get a program going for NFL players who are arrested for DUI. One where players would work with MADD, go to schools and talk about their mistakes and what could have been the consequence of their action.

    Why should women be any more or less indignant about Merling’s alleged crime than men?

  59. steeltownpride says: Jun 2, 2010 2:34 AM

    You all understand Florio is just trying to get webhits and comments . He picks and writes stories thats just going to piss everyone off and make them comment . He gets the whole AFCN AFCE fans to comment .
    All players from all teams have troubles . Its just not the fins or steelers . Clearly florio is still make that Ike Taylor pimp slapped Pat White along the sidelines last season . Knocking him silly .

  60. SonsCompass says: Jun 2, 2010 2:38 AM

    I know Florio gets accused all the time of being a fan of certain teams, but the fact is that he grew up in western Ohio, less than 100 miles from pittsburgh. He also practiced law in Pittsburgh. His pals at PFT also seem to be Steelers homers. They had a whole post devoted to the fact that they placed bets on whether Charlie Batch would make the team this year. Who has an interest in the 3rd string QB of the steelers, other than a bunch of steelers homers? This is why they are trying to get the heat off their team.

  61. jcjets says: Jun 2, 2010 3:15 AM

    When you choke away the playoffs like the dolphins did last year it puts more pressure on the team and coaches. Throw in all these arrests and off the field troubles and you wonder what will happen if they miss the playoffs again this year? Will Parcells stick around? Can Sparano survive?

  64. texasPHINSfan says: Jun 2, 2010 4:04 AM

    two of the four arrests the Dolphins had were for DUI’s. As bad as I feel those are, that doesn’t hardly constitute a team of “thugs and hoodlums”, especially when one of those was Ronnie Brown.
    Can anyone here, with a straight face, call Ronnie Brown a thug? I mean seriously. I’m laughing on the inside ;)
    Merling is an idiot, but he hasn’t yet been convicted by a jury of his peers, and unlike the Roethlisburger cases where there is a pattern of corroborated behavioral issues, (if charged) Merling would be a first-time offender. We still need to wait for a conviction in order officially claim him as “guilty”. And not to say Merling didn’t do the heinous deed, but how many “false alarm” cases of domestic disputes have we seen lately? Wasn’t there another player on another team that had those charges dropped because the prosecution realized there was no case?
    Jason Ferguson did a bad thing – took a banned substance. He’s suspended for 8 games. That sounds like disciplinary action to me. I’d love to hear what disciplinary action you feel the Dolphins could take against these players that the NFLPA wouldn’t be all up-in-arms about, anyway. I believe the teams were not allowed to discipline players based on off-field behavior, short of cutting them.
    I’d say there are plenty of off-field problems in Miami, no one is denying that. But saying it’s one of the worst teams in the league for thugs & hoodlums is a little sensational and appears to just drive for a story.

  65. Steve W. says: Jun 2, 2010 4:33 AM

    With all due respect iambruce (I’m sorry for your family’s troubles, as well as the issues facing all of the people in that region), you need to get over comments like that. It’s standard practice for people to use current events and incidents that most people remember as analogies. If it weren’t, analogies would have no effect and be rather pointless. It’s not like he said, “it’s as sad as when john smith’s mother died of a heart attack after catching his father molesting him when John was only six years old”. There’s no intention to hurt anyone here, nor is there any intention to make things personal.

  73. TN Phin Fan says: Jun 2, 2010 7:16 AM

    Why do these jets fans keep saying that we suck when we swept them last year and will probably do it again this year? I dont see how this works since we are better than them. They lost a huge part of their offense in thomas jones and replaced him with a old L.T that will be lucky to get 700 yards. Also they don’t have a qb that is ready to play the position fully.

  75. imongo says: Jun 2, 2010 8:41 AM

    The popularity of thug culture is the most serious threat to the NFL, far more dangerous than any single player or team, this is a professional sports stigma. Many of these scumbags mimic prison culture and romanticize violence and Miami is just the most recent and potent manifestation of this twisted and dysfunctional trend. Tuna and his tainted fish are crass, gross, vulgar and obnoxious and are the CURRENT poster children for much of the NFL.

    jersey – Ben, James Harrison, Ike Taylor, Santonio (yes, I’m aware he was traded, he was a steeler though when it counted), Jeff Reed……. That’s not to say they’re the only team with five or more quintessential douches, but c’mon, let’s be real here, yinz aren’t riding the same high horse ya were two years ago. This one’s significantly shorter and more accessible.

    “Alex Marvez, who covered the Dolphins for the South Florida Sun-Sentinel before joining FOXSports.com, has penned (or at least typed) a scathing indictment of a man who has sworn off “thugs and hoodlum,” even as he now harbors plenty of them.” – - Florio, check your facts. Marvez penned the article ONLY after reading this one first where he got the idea, including the Crime Boss idea – go to BleacherReport, look for the article – “The Miami Dolphin Crime Family: Tony and the Sparanos” – published 3 days prior to his own.
    Alex, you are welcome.

    “This team is oilier than the Gulf of Mexico”
    First off, that doesn’t make sense.
    second off, I’m still trying to understand what that means.
    ——————————————————
    It makes sense, they like to oil up themselves more than those who live on the shores of the gulf. They are a very oily team.
    Panama Jack loves the phins.

    Once again, Florio finds a way to bash Bill Parcells. He’s just obsessed with Parcells for some reason. Witness Florio’s nonstop coverage of the “scandal” involving a, yes, dumbass question asked by Jeff Ireland. We heard way more about that than about Tiki Barber (Florio’s NBC colleague) & his boinking a 20-something intern while his pregnant wife was bedridden. And somehow Florio even managed to insinuate that Ireland’s question actually came from Parcells. All I can figure is maybe Parcells once took a lollipop away from Florio, or something, because the guy just can’t get off the topic of Parcells-bashing.
