Dolfan Satisfaction Meter: 18.8%

[1) It is MONDAY, DECEMBER 10. Find our main Dolphins-49ers game post directly below in the blog. 2) Join us on Twitter @gregcote]

DOLFAN SATISFACTION METER: G13: Results are certified in the latest Dolfan Satisfaction Meter, and they show 18.8 percent overall satisfaction in the wake of Sunday's 27-13 loss at the San Francisco 49ers putting Miami' season record at 5-8. 1aa1dsmThe figure includes a season-low of only 2.7% calling themselves "very" satisfied. 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 9:15 a.m. today/Tuesday.
