Finding New And Exciting Ways To Screw Things Up
As with the way they handle pretty much everything, the Dolphins managed to find yet another way to sink to the depths of shittiness. This time, a sales rep screwed up and sent a bulk e-mail to season-ticket holders yesterday asking whether they planned to renew for the 2007 season. Howeva!, the rep failed to address the e-mail individually or to blind-copy recipients.
Needless to say, reactions were a bit angry:
“…what is not permissible is that my e-mail went out along with over 380 other peoples. This action is in conflict with your Privacy Statement.”
What's shocking to me is that this dude actually read the Dolphins' Privacy Statement. That's some pretty ballsy shit.
And this one:
“IN THE FUTURE I EXPECT THE MIAMI DOLPHINS TO PROTECT THE EMAIL ADDRESSES OF ITS CUSTOMER BASE AND NOT SEND A MESSAGE WHERE EMAIL ADDRESSES CAN BE SEEN BY ALL!”
Wow. Somebody hit the CAPS key and chill the fuck out!
And this one, which really brings the whole point home:
“[I am already receiving] solicitations from sellers on E-Bay peddling all sorts of Miami Dolphins paraphernalia.”
This e-mail was basically a spammer's wet dream. Season ticket holders are not only being asked if they want to spend their children's college funds on purchasing tickets to watch a team that has failed to finish a season with more than 9 wins for the third straight season ... but also had their private e-mails made public for, well, douchebaggy assholes who are now flooding inboxes with offers to buy an autographed Jay Fiedler photo and some Viagra.
The rep did send an e-mail apologizing (this time, the e-mails were blind copied, but what was the point, really?):
“Earlier today I sent you an email with an offer from the Miami Dolphins. By mistake, I did not blind copy the distribution list. I respect your privacy and I am truly sorry for any inconvenience that this mistake may have caused.”
So, no need to get all pissy about it, season-ticket holders. Just pretend it never happened.
Sucks to be a Dolphins season-ticket holder. In more ways than one.

I’m a season ticket holder. Thank God I didn’t get this e-mail (yet?). Still... it’s so embarrassing that this franchise can’t seem to get anything right.
I'll take 40 million off season fuck ups for a shot at the Superbowl...but this it typical Dolphin fuckery...Post a Comment
