It was inevitable, we suppose. In an era that features fan-purchased billboards lobbying for backup quarterbacks to play and head coaches to be fired, it was only a matter of time before the mob attempted to impose its will on a football team regarding potential personnel moves.
According to Local10.com in Miami, a billboard touting the ManningtoMiami.com website has popped up near I-595 in Fort Lauderdale.
“This site has been created to help influence Peyton Manning and the Miami Dolphins that ‘Manning to Miami’ is a movement and marriage that the entire South Florida community is behind,” the home page at ManningtoMiami.com declares.
Owner Stephen Ross likely needs no arm twisting. He’s reportedly “infatuated” with the prospect of bringing Manning to town.
I’ll provide my take on the situation at noon ET on PFT Live.
