DOLFAN SATISFACTION METER: GAME 2: Results are certified on the latest edition of the Dolfan Satisfaction Meter, and they show a plummet to only 3.7 percent overall satisfaction in the wake of Sunday's 23-13 Dolphins home loss vs. Houston putting Miami's season record at 0-2.
The DSM, now in its fourth season, is a continuous gauge of how fans feel about the team and its 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.
The poll never closes 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.
