    In 480 BC eh? Well, I take it you're referring to the battle of Thermopylae. In which case, despite the heroic and legendary stand of the Spartans, they ultimately lost the battle, and it wasn't until a year later that the invading Persians were repelled. The Athenian navy had as much to do with this as the Spartan army.

    Now, I understand given today's political climate that Sparta seems a better choice than Persia, but I think it's worth mentioning Sparta relied heavily on slavery. The Achaemenid era of the Persian empire on the other hand, given that their de facto state religion was Zarathustrian, prohibited slavery. You'll note such references of this in the Bible where Cyrus the Great, upon conquoring the Babylonians, frees the enslaved Jews and implores them to return to Jerusalem to build a great temple to honor their god. In Athenian literature like Aristotle's The Politics, an equal bias and disdain exists against both the Spartans and the Persians while other Athenians like Xenophon enlisted and fought for both the Persians and Spartans. And in terms of physical pigmentation or physiognomy, I suspect a great deal of the Spartans would pass for Persians and vice versa. Andre Agassi could pass as a Greek, no?

    IOW, an action movie is just that and nothing more.

    I'm not Persian by the way.

    Jason Taylor doesn't have an MVP award. He has a best defensive player award. They are DIFFERENT.

    As I said, your opinion is worthless and your a friggin reject who wasn't even a sperm in his daddy's pants when his team last went to a SB, never mind won one.

    BTW, what you claim as FACT is your worthless opinion. Your OPINION doesn't make it fact.

    I love how you paint with a broad brush there Feelthepain, judging me and calling me a bandwagon fan when you know jack about me.

    For the record, I went to my first Patriots game in 1969 vs the Oilers at Fenway park, a game the Patriots lost 14-0. I had the pleasure of seeing the Patriots stomp your Doofins into the ground in the 1985 Championship game at that toilet of a stadium called The Orange Bowl, I've still got the ticket stub to prove it. A game by the way from which your team has yet to recover; the Patriots have been to five AFC Championship games since while your team has been to a grand total of zero.

    I had season tickets from 1986 through 1992, then again from 1995 through 1998.

    Been a fan for close to forty years; as Da Bruinz pointed out, I've seen the good, the bad and the ugly during that time.

    So much for your bandwagon cheap shot you clambrain.

    Jason Taylor was an MVP huh Aqua; considering how much of a football genius you make yourself out to be, that is a major error on your part. Keep it up and ESPN, ABC, CBS, Spice, will never hire you.

    And Warren94, you don't have a dog in this fight and have thrown two cheap shots so far, so why don't you run along and go ramble in another thread ok there sport............

    two cheaps shots. What I stated that foul language is not proper to get your point across and this thread was about trent green not grasping the offense not which team was better.


    They were not meant to be cheapshots, but if your ego is fragile so be it.

    Any discussion with Dolphin fans usually involves foul language, SOP. And since you in fact where the one who started the thread and as you correctly pointed out, it has gone way off topic, my bad, you do have a dog in this fight.

    I retract my statemate.............

    So it was only my opinion that Taylor was defensive MVP, recorded 13.5 sacks, forced 9 fumbles and intercepted 2 passes and returned both for TDs? Hmm.. I could've sworn that was something elias decided on, not Aqua. You're not very smart.

    1. You said he won the MVP award last year, and it was Tomlinson, not Taylor.

    2. You may swear that Elias decided on it, but you are wrong. Elias keeps stats, they do not decide the MVP.

    3. Taylor was never MVP. Ever.

    EDIT:
    4. You are a behaving like a donkey. It is one thing to be wrong. It is something else, when you are wrong, to ridicule the people who are right. Just fess up like a man, and say, "I was wrong. Taylor was never MVP." And then make good on the bet you made and lost.

    Lets get some facts straight.
    1) You claimed that Taylor was an MVP. NOT a defensive MVP. An MVP.
    2) My reference on your opinion being worthless dealt with the following:
    That is NOT fact. That is your opinion.

    3) You can claim I am not smart all you want, but its not fact. What is fact is that you are a liar and a welcher.

    HAHA! So in baseball if I called A-Rod the MVP I would be wrong becuase there was a National League MVP too? Just because I left off the lable of defensive means squat. Jeez you guys know how to read between the lines and nit pick like little kids. Grow up!

    Aqua is living in the past glory days

    Taylor WAS a good defensive player will be average at best in 2007
    Taylor WAS the best Dolphins player in the past few years...best now will be RB Brown
    Taylor WILL not be as good this year and is another year older
    Taylor has been beating down his own teams decisions this year and will retire in 2008
    Taylor WILL NOT win the league's best defensive player this year,That will go to either Shawn Merrimen or Brian Urlacher
