09:13 AM ET 02.10 | The Miami Dolphins have agreed to seek voter approval of tax dollars for Sun Life Stadium, with team executives dropping their objections to a referendum on the controversial plan, sources close to the matter said Saturday. The upgrades would include the building of a canopy to cover the stands, but not the field. It will be announced Monday.

Seek voter approval? Because the Dolphins or their owner couldn't possibly afford it or be bothered to apply for a loan? Vote NO Miami! The Dolphins don't put money on your pocket.

After seeing how well the last stadium vote turned out there... I'm sure this one will go swimmingly.

They're going to let the people who "accidentally" voted for Buchanan in 2000 vote to appease a multimillionaire?

It's called Sun Life Stadium, "at least this year". If they want shade they should sign a deal with Shady Acres retirement home and let them pay for the cover.
