Dolphins tight end Anthony Fasano isn’t happy with “sick” fans of the team, who want the won-loss record to be sufficiently bad to secure dibs on Andrew Luck. Fasano and at least one teammate also aren’t happy with the franchise’s decision to celebrate Tebow’s college team during a Dolphins home game.
“[I]t was awful,” Fasano told Joe & Evan of WFAN, via SportsRadioInterviews.com, regarding the celebration of the Florida 2008 national title team. “Showing up at the stadium and seeing all the Gator stuff and the Tebow stuff. It was disheartening, but as players we kind of put ourselves in that position because the Dolphins are in the business of winning football games and making money. We haven’t been winning football games, but it’s still a smack in the face and it’s unfortunate we couldn’t rain on their parade and get the win.”
Safety and defensive captain Yeremiah Bell confirmed the sentiment in an appearances with Joe Rose of WQAM. “I think it was kind of messed up, you know, how he has a day in our stadium,” Bell said. “You know, I don’t think any of us thought that was right.”
Bell remains unimpressed with the guy who led the Broncos back from a 15-point fourth-quarter deficit. “I think he’s a running back playing quarterback with a high football IQ,” Bell said. “At the end of the day, when his career gets on down the road, he may even have to switch positions.”
Meanwhile, multiple members of the Dolphins roster will eventually be faced with the prospect of switching careers, especially since they were unable to beat that running back playing quarterback with a high football IQ.
