I've gone to only 3 Marlins games. My experience at each was not all that good. Having grown up in NY with the Dodgers, Giants, Yankees and later the Mets, my experience was much different. Those fans were excited over the game being played--who was making a play, who was at bat. Fans knew the game of baseball. Each pitch was important.

My experience at Joe Robbie Stadium was just the opposite. It was a social event. People were more interested in each other than watching the game being played. They didn't seem to know the players on either team. It seemed it was just a place to go. There were few "real" fans in attendance, IMO. I was turned off by it.

Part of the stadium experience is to be with other "fans." To enjoy the game with them. To be excited over the teams success and disappointed when things go awry. When people don't care what happens--it's a turn off, at least for me, and I suppose for other "fans" too.

the marlins need to move from miami. there aren't any real marlins fans anyway. it's a damn shame they won multiple titles, and an even bigger one that they are getting a new stadium. well at least they will take their crappy dirt infield with them. go braves!

Terrible.......It all started with huisenga dismantling this team from head to toe......

After that we won a championship against the yankees i dont know how.

Then another dismantling and they've been a mess since then.

Im a marlins and dolphins fan.....and im glad we will have no more infield dirt....Once and for all.

But you know, at least baseball is not may favorite sport.


GO PHINS......smileys with beer

go marlins....winking smiley

What would you do if the dolphins won a championship....then they were dismantled.......Then won another championship.......then got dismantled again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And after that they were a piece of $H!T for over 7 or 8 years...

When the marlins were winning back then in 97 people went to the stadium. There are baseball fans in miami......

Huisenga messed it up for every baseball fan in miami.

The hell with huisenga. F Him.

Now the marlins team is consisted of more or less triple A players.

Why would anybody go to a marlins game on a working day to watch a sucky triple A team?

Because thats exactly what they are...A sucky triple A team.

I went back them to the stadium.............I do not go now........

So im proof that there are baseball fans in miami.....We are just fed up
with all the bullCrap.


PS. The dolphins may not have won lately but at least they have invested money on players.....And thats what attracts the crowd....Players like jake long or marshall who have multimillion dollar deals.

How do you say it?

Household names such as long or marshall.....

Is that the right word???Household....

Back then we even rented a van many times and went 18-19 people family and friends to games...Not just once but a lot of times i lost count.

I'd be pretty freaking happy we won a championship at all. We've been sucky for about as long as the marlins have been in existence. at least they have 2 titles to show for the time.

samsam you're the most fired up marlins fan I ever saw!
huisenga sold the team a long time ago, and they've still been competative and even won a title after the first dismantling, so i think marlins fans have little to complain about when compared to cubs fans, royals fans, pirates fans, etc

The Marlins won their second title what, four years AFTER Huizenga sold the team.

If they hadn't won since Wayne sold it (12 years ago!) then maybe partial blame for the current state of the team could be put on Huizenga. But there has been plenty of time to turn the team around since then.

That was a game that had been rescheduled to a weekday and the weather was lousy. Really not surprised that only 300 people showed up.

Yes there is been time but every time they sell the team they sell it to a owner who doesnt have much capital. Thats why they have to sell the good players they have or had.They sold it twice i believe since huisenga.
