Dolfan Satisfaction Meter: 81.3%

[1) It is MONDAY, NOVEMBER 26. Find our main Dolphins-Seahawks game post directly below in the blog. 2) See results of our season-final Canesfan Satisfaction Meter poll two posts below this in the blog. 3) Join us on Twitter @gregcote]

Dolphins' Amaya arrested: TMZ first reported Dolphins backup safety Jonathon Amaya was arrested around 4:30 a.m. today on Miami Beach for allegedly trying to choke a cab driver. Based on his amount of playing time, he's barely a Dolphin. And might not be for much longer, after this.

DOLFAN SATISFACTION METER: G11: Results are certified in the latest Dolfan Satisfaction Meter, and they show 81.3 percent overall satisfaction in the wake of Sunday's 24-21 victory over the visiting Seattle Seahawks putting Miami's season record at 5-6. That is the highest total since Game 7. The 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.
