Dolfan Satisfaction Meter: 98.3%

[1) It is TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30. Thanks to all who tapped into our live blog Q&A/chat yesterday. We do it every Monday, 1-2 p.m. 2) Poor Tigers fans. Almost better to have not made the World Series at all than to have been swept. 3) Find our main Dolphins-Jets game post directly below in the blog. 4) Visit our video channel atYouTube/TheGregCote (on hiatus; new vids coming soon) and join us on Twitter @gregcote]

DOLFAN SATISFACTION METER: G7: Results are certified in the latest Dolfan Satisfaction Meter, and they show 98.3 percent overall satisfaction -- a season high -- in the wake of Sunday's 30-9 victory at the New York Jets putting Miami's season record at 4-3. The 80.9% calling themselves "very" satisfied also is by far a season high. 1aa1dsmThe DSM, in its fifth year, is continuous weekly gauge of how fans are feeling about the Dolphins and their direction. Right after each game I invite you to share your overall degree of satisfaction. Criteria for voting is your own, but I suggest fans consider the most recent game's performance and caliber of opponent, the season as a whole, the direction the club is heading and your overall degree of optimism -- all in the context of reasonable expectations. Polls never close (you may still vote), but results are certified official the morning after one full day of voting. In this case that was around 9 a.m. today/Tuesday.
