Scandal, latest loss have Dolphins fans fed up

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Miami Dolphins fans are venting on Twitter and radio, complaining about the owner, the coach, the general manager and even the backup left guard.

A harassment case and a loss to a winless team can have that effect.

Already staggered by a scandal that has prompted an NFL investigation, the Dolphins must now try to bounce back from their worst loss of the year. Rather than taking out their frustrations of the past two weeks on the hapless Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Dolphins came out flat Monday night and lost 22-19.

The loss left the Dolphins at 4-5, with the five defeats coming in the past six games. Fed-up fans took the latest loss hard, and many said owner Stephen Ross should fire everyone, himself included.
