The 2012 offseason has not been kind to Dolphins fans. When Peyton Manning was released over a week ago, it was widely believed that Miami was the most likely destination for the four-time MVP. As the days passed and Manning visited the likes of the Broncos, Titans, and 49ers, it became evident that the Dolphins had fallen behind. They then turned their attention to Matt Flynn, who ended up signing with the Seahawks. Over the weekend, Miami was reportedly negotiating with an irritated Alex Smith, but now that the Niners have missed out on Manning Smith will likely return to San Francisco. On Monday, the Fins signed David Garrard to a one-year deal. Yeah.

According to Helmet2Helmet, WQAM in Miami reported on Monday night that Dolphins fans are planning to form a protest at the team’s spring training facility at around 1 p.m. Tuesday. The station plans to broadcast the protest live, which will call for GM Jeff Ireland to be fired and owner Stephen Ross to sell the team.

Various Twitter users have also changed their avatar to the “Fire Jeff Ireland” graphic that you see above. As you may remember, Dolphins fans also hired an airplane to fly a “Fire Jeff Ireland” banner over their stadium back in December, so their frustration is nothing new. Cue the brown paper bags. It’s going to be a long season in Miami.
