MIAMI (AP) -- Frustrated Miami Dolphins fans are taking to the street.

More than two dozen fans gathered outside the Dolphins' complex Tuesday to protest the way the team is being run, and the spectacle prompted general manager Jeff Ireland to act.

The notoriously media-shy GM telephoned several reporters out of the blue and attempted to explain a series of recent decisions that have drawn national ridicule. It was the latest odd turn in a bizarre sequence of events for Ireland and the Dolphins.

More than two dozen fans gathered at team headquarters to vent. Several wore bags over their heads, and others held signs that read "FIRELAND."

Ireland asked fans for patience and said his moves shouldn't be judged until the offseason is over.
