Karlos Dansby no fan of 'Suck for Luck'
By James Walker
The "Suck for Andrew Luck" campaign in Miami is growing in popularity. Therefore, it was just a matter of time before it reached the Dolphins' locker room.
With Miami 0-5, many Dolphins fans already consider 2011 a lost season. Now, fans are rooting against the team so that it can land the Stanford quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick.
Dolphins linebacker Karlos Dansby despises the idea.
"It's not right, bro. It's not right," Dansby said, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. " We put too much into this, man, to have the fans say that -- period, point blank -- or even promote that campaign. It's kind of sad."
"Tanking" has become a popular word in Miami. Dolphins fans see the writing on the wall that change is coming at head coach and there is a very slim chance of this group having a sudden turnaround.
But Dansby isn't giving up hope and ripped Miami fans who have given up on this year's team.
"Man, we got 11 games. What are you talking about?" Dansby said. "We can't look at next season. We've got 11 games. We can win 'em out, and then what? Then you'd be biting your tongue. Those guys that are saying that are fair-weather fans. They're not real Dolphins fans."
Is Dansby correct? Are fans who root for Miami to tank games real Dolphins fans?
Give us your take on Dansby's comments.
