The Dan Marino Collectors Ring (DMCR) is a WebRing about sites that feature cards for trade or sale, and/or tribute pages about Dan Marino. This isn't limited to card collectors though, anyone who has a Miami Dolphin/Marino page can be in the ring. That's all the requirements, and all I ask is that the ring code is placed either on the main or links page of your site.
Thanks for all the support!
Buoniconti Elected To Hall Of Fame
Nick Buoniconti becomes the eighth former Dolphin to be elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and the first defensive player. He will join Head Coach Don Shula (1970-95, inducted in 1997), fullback Larry Csonka(1968-74, 1979, inducted in 1987), quarterback Bob Griese (1967-80, inducted in 1990), center Jim Langer (1970-79, inducted in 1987), guardLarry Little (1969-80, inducted in 1993), center Dwight Stephenson(1980-87, inducted in 1998) and wide receiver Paul Warfield (1970-74,inducted in 1983). The 5’11”, 220-lb. middle linebacker anchored Miami’s “No-Name” defense, leading the Dolphins to two straight Super Bowl victories. Enshrined on the Dolphins Honor Roll on November 18, 1991, Buoniconti set the standard by which Dolphins linebackers are compared. Originally selected by the Boston Patriots in the 13th round of the 1962 AFL Draft. After playing seven seasons for the Patriots, where he played in six AFL All-Star games and tallied 24 career interceptions, he was traded to the Dolphins in 1969. He was then named the team’s Most Valuable Player in his first season in Miami. A two-time Pro Bowl selection (1972-73), Buoniconti was named the Dolphins’ outstanding linebacker for five straight seasons (1970-75). Buoniconti performed outstandingly under the spotlight, picking off a Terry Bradshaw pass in the 1972 AFC Championship game, and his interception in Super Bowl VII led to the Dolphins’ decisive second touchdown in the 14-7 win. He was voted as a linebacker on the Dolphins’ Silver Anniversary all-time team, was named to the all-time AFC Super Bowl team and was inducted into the Florida Sports Hall of Fame. Earned his law degree from Suffolk University in 1968. Since the end of his football career Buoniconti has been just as visible, founding The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, which has initiated groundbreaking research on spinal cord injuries.
Congratulations to Nick!

#13 is Retired in Miami
In a wonderful half-time ceremony of the game against the visiting Balitmore Ravens, the Miami Dolphins retired the jersey of it's greatest player, assuring that no one will ever wear the number 13 again.
Dan Marino was obviously moved as his jersey was retired, his named put into the Ring of Honor at Pro Player Stadium and a statue erected at the entrance of the stadium, forever a reminder of 17 years of greatness.
He will be missed.
Anyone interested in a VHS tape of the half-time show or other Marino moments, please send me an email, and let me know what you are looking for, and I'll see what I can do.
In other site updates news, I will be tinkering with a new look for the site pretty soon, as well as a new domain name. Keep checking back for details. Thanks for all the continued support.
