Growing up during the “Marino-Era” had me hooked on this team since I was a child and I have never looked back. As a life-long diehard fan of the Miami Dolphins I only can count down the days until this team wins a Super Bowl during my lifetime. I entered the Dolphins Fan-Site business back in 2001 and was interviewed and had a write-up on my then site in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel in 2003 by NFL Reporter Alex Marvez about when I recruited Ricky William’s mother, Sandy Williams, to be a contributor on my then website. After the 2004 season I took a long break from running a Miami Dolphins fan-site and then started DolphinsTalk.com up in early 2012. Through my many connections with players, agents, media types, and front office personal and with the help of the tremendous staff that has come on board I have grown and guided  DolphinsTalk.com into the amazing website you see today. I am the creator of the DolphinsTalk.com Podcast which won the inaugural Webbie Award for best Miami Dolphins Podcast at Web Weekend XIV in 2017. I am the lead columnist, editor, and Host of the DolphinsTalk.com Daily Podcast, the most listened to daily Miami Dolphins podcast on the Internet.

Randy Savage

Manager of Sales/Marketing

Born and raised in the city of Miami, Florida, I am South Florida sports fan who so happens to love the Miami Dolphins a little more than the others. I have been a Dolphins season ticket holder for the past five seasons and I also was the original co-host of the DolphinsTalk.com Podcast.

Ryan VanHoover


From Syracuse, NY and have been a Dolphins fan since I was 6 yrs old watching Dan Marino. I’m a passionate diehard Dolphins fan no matter what. Want to see this team win the Super Bowl in my lifetime.

Ian Berger


I am a banker by day and a husband, father of two girls, and die-hard Miami Dolphins fan by night. I began rooting for the team during the 1985 season, and I have become more obsessed ever since. I became a season ticket holder during the 2012 season, and have not missed a game since (including preseason games). In addition to attending the NFL’s longest game in NFL history on September 9, 2018 (and staying until the very end), I also attended the Miami Miracle game in its entirety on December 9, 2018 and have attended a few away games as well.   I began writing and podcasting on various internet sites in 2015, and I continue to write opinion articles with an optimistic theme.  My 14 year old daughter recently asked me “why do you root for a team that always loses”? And my response was that one day, our Miami Dolphins will be winners again. And when that day comes, I’ll still be around rooting for them and we’ll have one heck of a party!!

Noah Urbanski

Podcast Co-Host

I’m a huge football fan and even bigger Dolphins fan. Born and raised in Rochester, NY, part of the weirdly large upstate NY Dolphins fan base. Been a Dolphins fan since I was 7 years old, been a miserable Dolphins fan since I was 8 years old. As a younger fan I missed out on the Marino days, my earliest Dolphins memories include Cleo Lemon and Chad Henne slinging the ball straight to defenders. On a slightly related note I would take a bullet for Tannehill. I moderate the Miami Dolphins Subreddit and host the Phins Up Phans Down podcast alongside Mike. Follow me for podcast updates, hot takes, and occasional gif threads.

Michael Woodburn

Podcast Co-Host

Born in ’92 and raised a Die-hard Dolphins fan, who eventually grew into being a podcast addict. Combined my two passions to bring them into Phins Up Phans Down. The only thing I love more than the Dolphins is the schadenfreude regarding the Patriots and their fans. I am both a homer and an eternal pessimist at the same time regarding this team.

Landon and Jeff Neubarth

Podcast Hosts

Landon is a lifelong Dolphins Fan about to enter the 7th grade.  He is like the 1972 dolphins in that the team has a perfect record in games he has attended in person.  His weakness is acquiring jerseys only to have the player traded.

Jeff attended his first Dolphin’s game in 1983 in the upper deck of the Orange Bowl.  He has experienced  the greatness of the Marino-era and the tough times ever since.  He wants nothing more than to see the Lombardi trophy return the south Florida.  Seriously, nothing. Jeff is also a TV producer by trade currently working as Executive Producer at  Callaway Golf’s media company and has been fortunate enough to win 3 Sports Emmy’s for his work in the industry.

Bobby Melendez


I was born in the state of Florida and was raised in Miami, growing up in the small city of Hialeah. In my home, we were raised to be diehard everything Miami (in terms of sports teams) …from the Heat to our beloved Miami Dolphins. Before joining DolphinsTalk.com as a contributor and regular guest on the podcast, I’ve covered the Dolphins for multiple sports sites such as Bleacher Report, Draft Diamonds, RSEN Report, and Real Talk Miami, while also hosting a weekly two-hour podcast for Real Talk Miami covering all of Miami pro sports as well.

Carl C.Crowley


Blessed. I live with 4 women. Dolphins fan since ’75. Yes, 1975. Old enough to never remember them winning a Super Bowl. Was at the “fake spike” game. Follow me on twitter @carlccrowley

Josh Katzker

Podcast Co-Host

My earliest memory of the Miami Dolphins is listening to my father swear at the TV while the team was being systematically dismantled by the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XIX. That late January evening was a life-changing event. All of five years old, I became a passionate fan and would remain one forever. Born and raised in South Florida, I lived through the glory years of Marino and the Marks Brothers and the ups and downs of the generations that have followed. The trends of the last 15 years or so of Miami Dolphins football led my brother and I to reformat our old general sports and wrestling podcast, “The Brothers of Destruction,” to be purely Miami Dolphins-focused. The result, “The Same Old Dolphins Show,” is much needed catharsis for both of us.

After graduating from the University of Central Florida (2017 NCAA Football National Champions – Go Knights!), I spent time in Central NY, Central Ohio, Phoenix, and Chicago before finally settling down just outside of Syracuse, NY where I now reside with my wife (a Seahawks fan) and 20-month old son, whose football loyalties remain divided.

When not agonizing over the Dolphins, I’m agonizing over the Chicago Cubs, Chicago Blackhawks, Miami Heat, Seattle Sounders, Manchester United, and professional wrestling. You can read my complaints and my takes on Twitter @AmplifiedtoRock.

Evan Morris


Even as a long-distance fan from Bozeman, Montana, I grew up watching Dolphins games every Sunday with my uncle and aunt across town. My first year of being a serious fan was in 2007 when I was eight, and I vividly remember Cleo Lemon hitting Greg Camarillo across the middle in OT to beat the Ravens and get our only win of that season (I wore my orange Ronnie Brown Jersey to school the next day and everyone made fun of me — it was worth it). Fast forward and I’m now a senior at the United States Naval Academy on track to be a Naval pilot after graduation. I’m a bigger Dolphins fan than I’ve ever been, and I can’t wait to see where Flores and Tua take this once-great franchise. I’m beyond excited to share my thoughts here with you and grow my knowledge of the game. Check me out on Twitter at @EvanMorris72 and as always, Fins UP!!!

Aaron Katzker

Podcast Co-Host

Aaron Katzker AKA Aaron the Brain (named for longtime heel wrestling manager Bobby Heenan) is a lifelong Dolphins fan (well… since he was about 5 years old in 1989). Growing up as a Dolphins fan in the 90’s breeded a certain amount of positivity about the team and an expectation that they would always be in the hunt. As the years went by, and playoff failures mounted, and the page turned to the new Millennium, and playoff failures turned into regular season disappointments, he gained a fair bit of skepticism, which he and his brother Josh carry with them into their bi-weekly podcast “The Same Old Dolphins Show”.
Aaron has previously written for Al’s Sports Blog and covered the Dolphins for Scout.com. He is also a graduate of Connecticut School of Broadcasting.

Stefan Mangone


Born and raised in South Florida and have been an avid Miami Dolphins fan since I first saw Marino play in the 90’s.  Former securities trader, so it says a lot that watching the Dolphins on Sunday’s have given me more near heart attacks than big dips in the market.  Long for the days of Ryan Tannehill being a wide receiver and Chad Pennington hitting Brian Hartline on curl routes.

Matt DiBrino


Born and raised in North New Jersey, I have been a die-hard Miami Dolphins fan since as long as I remember. Living in the Jets backyard has made this frustrating, especially during their successful years. Miami’s ups and downs never discouraged me as I am the eternal optimist when it comes to this team.  I am a former practicing attorney whom owns and operates a Mortgage Company at the current time and will be expecting my first child this November. I look forward to contributing more content to this great site!
