Easy solution -- Elect McCain -- he's about a million times more qualified anyway. Who in their right mind could vote for Barack HUSSEIN Obama anyway?

If he does get elected -- everyone had better start preparing for a DEPRESSION. You'll be seeing unemployment lines like you haven't seen in 75 years.

Quit whining Huizenga -- Just sell the team then the curse will be lifted. You have ruined this team since the day you walked in the door. Goodbye and don't let the door hit you in the butt.

Who are you to say what he should do with his money, or what a given dollar amount is really worth to him? How about YOU just give up $100 or $1000 for Obama's cause? 100 to 1 you're part of the bottom 40% paying zero income taxes in this country. And of course you'lll be voting for Obama.

I pay my taxes like everybody else. Last time I checked the ones getting freebees from the government were very the rich and wealthy. And who Im I? I am a US citizen and a taxpayer that don't cry when I have to pay my taxes my point is if he has to pay more taxes so be it that's just the way it is. I didn't hear Wayne crying when he got those juicy tax cuts from W. It is what it is if is higher taxes well that's it But to cry like a baby because he has to pay more taxes is ridiculous again it cost approx $80 per person to go to a Dolphin game and this is to the 400 level and people still go to the games you don't hear people crying about it. If the taxes bother him then don't sell or do whatever but a grown succesful man crying about taxes is pathetic. My other point is DO NOT MIX SPORTS WITH POLITICS.

After he sells, the stadium should be renamed Joe Robbie Stadium...a stand up guy who paid for it. Dolphins were winners when he had the helm!

If he gives it to charity, it won't be taxed.

He wants us to pay for wars and oil drilling subsidies and bank bailouts.

He wants to keep his billions, and he wants a president who'll help him.

...and I'm in the top 5% income bracket before that slur is directed my way.

Rather "give it to charity than give it to him"
Poor attitude for a wealthy American citizen. I guess paying off the war debt and funding the troops is for the little people to take care of?

Huizenga has been a horrible owner. He should pay higher taxes just for that fact.

Everyone meet Wayne the Super Rich NFL Team Owner... Whats up with all these filthy rich guys crying about a 3% raise in their taxes...It's PATHETIC...I find it funny that every year he raises our ticket prices But then whines about a little 3% tax raise..

Huizenga is a greedy and extremely cheap. He weasled his why out of the Marlins because money rules everything in his world. Under Huizenga the Dolphins have done nothing but struggle.. Wayne is to blame for the Dolphins inability to sign any high priced free agents in the off season..

Did I mention he's cheap?? You don't hear owners like Jerry Jones whining in the news paper about forking over a few extra bucks out of his huge enormous stash of cash..I'll be glad when Huizenga finally sells the team to a real owner.

Yeah, that's the reason why the world banking systme has fallen apart and in a total crisis. Nothing to do with housing and mortgage industry ollapses, eh? BTW, I don't think McCain is actually running. It is someone that looks like him but speaks like Bush, Cheney and Rove combined.

Wow. What a patriot. He'd rather give it to charity than to helping his country get back on track. No wonder we have been so terrible since he's been here. Karma is a bitch

Typical Rich Republican. We should feel sorry for this spoiled Billionaire because he may have to seperate with a few of his dollars to benefit the lowly middle class. Boo Hoo. I can't stand Huizenga anyway. He sold out his employees at Blockbuster and at ANC and lined his own pockets.
