Miami Dolphins owner Steve Ross sticking to plan
Sticking to the plan wins games in the National Football League, said Miami Dolphins owner and real estate mogul Stephen Ross at a media event Monday.
It’s a simple philosophy that rings true in real estate as well, with Ross being one of the most consistent and successful developers in the world. He is not only an investor with friend and partner Jorge Perez in local property, but has joined with him in several projects, including CityPlace in West Palm Beach.
Ross’ Monday comments to the Sun Sentinel about the Dolphin’s 2012 season could easily apply to his day job as chairman of The Related Companies: “It’s important to have a plan, follow that plan and remain consistent,” he told the Sun Sentinel. “When you no longer have confidence in the plan you change it.”
That’s an indication Ross still has faith in general manager Jeff Ireland, who has earned the wrath of some fans after the team finished 7-9 – its fourth season in a row below .500.
“It isn’t money that solves problems. It’s brains,” said Ross, who also said Ireland has “football intelligence.”
