    A group of fans is organizing a Sunday occupation of the 0-5 Miami Dolphins, the 99 percent of very bad football.

    Ever wondered how difficult it is to camp out on orange carpet? 

    You might soon find out: a group of fans is organizing a Sunday occupation of the 0-5 Miami Dolphins, the 99 percent of very bad football.

    "Fans will send [Dolphins owner] Stephen Ross a message that we will not stand for this lack of personnel moves," read a statement from the group Occupy Miami Dolphins.

    "The message will be sent by hitting Ross in the wallet as the Phins will play to an empty stadium and to protesting fans."

    Of course, the stadium may not be as empty as Occupy Miami Dolphins hopes -- more than 10,000 additional tickets were sold for Sunday's 1 p.m game in the week after Tim Tebow was announced as Denver's starter -- and any demonstrators will, presumably, be paying one-percenter Ross at least $20 each for parking.

    But protest they will, beginning around 11:30 a.m. in the vaguely defined area of "outside the stadium."

    "If you're tired of the Dolphins inability to produce winning product on the field, read's the group's doodle-ridden Facebook page, "then join the Occupy The Dolphins movement and let your voice be heard by hitting them in the wallet."
