DOLFAN SATISFACTION METER: G5: Results are certified in the latest Dolfan Satisfaction Meter, and they show 93.1 percent overall satisfaction -- a season high -- in the wake of Sunday's 17-13 victory at the Cincinnati Bengals putting Miami's season record at 2-1aa1dsm3. The DSM, in its fifth season, 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.
