    It's not the building's fault but the location of Marlins Stadium is helping with attendance. The Marlins will probably always average more at Marlins Stadium than they did at Sun Life and that's all location because of the large Cuban community there.

    But I guarantee that if the Hurricanes were winning the ACC regularly, they'd fill up the stadium. Miami likes winners. That's why Miami is a basketball town now. Football season just started and no one cares lol. Everyone is talking about the Heat already.

    ngs have to change. Teams have to win in Miami. Right now, the Dolphins, Hurricanes and Marlins are bottom feeders.

    Its really that obvious. Win and your attendance will go up, it's that simple.

    People really need to stop blaming the ****ing stadium, or how long it takes to get there. If you win fans will show.

    Only in Miami. Its a very fickle fan base unlike fan bases around the rest of the country who may field a bad team, but their fans still show up.

    That's a pretty racist comment, and pretty un necessary.

    I didn't think so. Either way, can't expect a private college in a city like Miami to fill up a pro stadium. Not so hard for a team like Alabama that's probably the most boring, ****tiest place to live in the US with a large alumni base, and a great team.

    Your reasoning is logical, his is a comment a "good ole boy" would make and there's no other way to explain it.

    Never in Orange Bowl history has the Hurricanes had that low attendance.

    Oh and the Marlins just enjoyed their best attendance in franchise history, at the Orange Bowl location.
    when UM wasn't playing FSU they weren't packing the OB either at least in the 90s and 00s.

    Yup. Support your team. How hard is it to figure out when your team isn't great they need all the advantages they can get- like a great home field advantage.
