    Dolphins owner H. Wayne Huizenga said Sunday no date has been set for selling up to 45 percent more of the team to Stephen Ross, but the presidential election is among the issues weighing on his decision.

    That's because a Barack Obama administration is expected to mean higher capital-gains taxes.

    "He wants to double the capital gains tax, or almost double it," Huizenga said. "I'd rather give it to charity than to him."

    My heart bleeds for him.

    I love when people who barely make a living are worried about someone who's worried about capital gains taxes on someone who bought something for 550 million dollars

    Don't y'all just cry for him?

    Yes, I'm sure this move has nothing to do with the fact that the Dolphins suck and have sucked for a long time.

    I was there for a game last year and 3/4 of the stadium was empty.

    He's not making any money.

    As a fins fan, I hope he sells away as much control and ownership of the team as possible.

    It's been tough being a fan over the past decade. :D

    I'm nowhere near as rich as Wayne is, but increasing the capital gains tax from 20% to 25% is doubling? If his math is this bad, no wonder the Dolphins and the Marlins are doing so poorly.

    I am a Bucs fan. This isn't a sports thread.

    The point is this. Liberals and Democrats think your money is theirs to do with as they please.

    It is not.

    What Wayne is saying is that he'd rather sell now so he can keep more of HIS money instead of giving it to Obama, Pelosi and Reid to redistribute to people who pay NO Federal taxes.

    That's the point.

    I'm sure Wayne has already paid a hundred times more in Federal taxes than all the taxes paid combined by all posters on this board.

    According to Obama and Biden that makes him a Patriot (not a Dolphin).

    Sad isn't it. The economy isn't going to recover for a long time.

    Unfortunately, Obama is not the right man for the job.
