I am a dodge tank and I am loving it.:D Anyway, my question is where does pure stam tanks come in? Because I don't see a lot of stam tank in any raids at all(if I am in my dps spec). I saw one before but that tank got kicked because someone said Stam tanks sucks.:| So where do stam tanks shine???

Stamina tanks really shine in Magic damage based fights, as magic can't be avoided. It can be restisted, but not avoided. So better to have enough health to survive it, than trying to avoid it when you can't.

A LOT of damage in raids beyond Naxx are unavoidable or come in such large amounts (of which a part is usually unavoidable or even not mitigated by armor) you need a lot of health to survive untill your healers can heal you. In ToGC the damage is so insane that stamina/health is far more important than avoidance.
Also, dodge only gemming = bad, because of diminishing returns later on. Going pure avoidance is simply not useful anymore unless you're raiding someone's fridge.
