(I know Wikipedia isn't the best source.)

Heck their was even a movie about the dolphin being kidnapped, even though the dolphins name in the movies is Snowflake instead of Flipper.

They need to bring the Dolphin back, the only reason they got rid of him was because of cost. Today, I think the Dolphins can afford to take care of a Dolphin.

Just imagine how unique that would make them.

Then they would have to deal with PETA thinking its too loud and torturous for the dolphin or something

I despise PETA, but I would tend to agree probably not the best idea to keep a Dolphin isolated in a small tank simply for the amusement of NFL fans.

Its not like having a dog or a horse where in addition to being domesticated, you can easily interact them with other members of their species as well.

They would have to displace thousands of seats too. So there is that too.
