Dolphins stadium bill fails, which would kill Super Bowl bid


The Dolphins went for the Hail Mary, dragging Dan Marino to the state Capitol yesterday to support a longshot bill that would allow a referendum for public funding for stadium upgrades.

And like Marino so often, it fell short of a Super Bowl.

According to the Miami Herald, Florida lawmakers failed to approve the measure which would allow for taxpayer support for renovations of SunLife Stadium.

And with the defeat, which came without a vote in the state House, the Dolphins chances for a future Super Bowl took a huge hit.

They were competing with the new 49ers stadium for the right to host Super Bowl L, but the league’s not going to send the game there without the stadium improvements.

That also likely means Houston will get the following Super Bowl, as they were going to compete with the San Francisco-Miami loser for that one.
