MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Who knows if the Dolphins will win this season, but they’ll definitely rock.
According to a report, the Dolphins will announce that their newly renovated home will be known as Hard Rock Stadium.

Hurricanes scheduled to open season at Dolphins’ stadium as construction…
Andy Slater reports the announcement could come as soon as Wednesday and that the trademark was applied for last week.
The former Joe Robbie Stadium, Pro Player Park, Pro Player Stadium, Dolphins Stadium, Dolphin Stadium, Land Shark Stadium and, most recently, Sun Life Stadium has been looking for a new name since the Sun Life Financial rights expired earlier in 2016.
The stadium had been temporarily titled New Miami Stadium.
A new roof adorns the renovated stadium, giving shade to Dolphins and Hurricanes fans on hot game days.
The stadium will debut its makeover when the University of Miami opens its season Sept. 3 vs. Florida A&M.
From what I saw on twitter, the deal is worth over 12 years? That would be nice to hold onto a name for awhile since the stadium has gone through 7 since it’s inception. Nice and brand new with new shades and some new looks to the stadium. Gets us all ready for the start of the season to happen already even though there were looming questions of if it would be ready in time. It’s 2016 though and a Walmart can be built and ready for shoppers in the blink of an eye these days around here so I’m confident they can get shit done by first kick off of the regular season.
It would be interesting though if Hard Rock bought the stadium rights to a team like the Redskins though. Then you can almost spin the fact that Redskins isn’t a derogatory name since Indians essentially own the land on which they play. This also reminds me that they should add a little casino in Hard Rock stadium. Play some slots while Tannehill throws a pick.
