Two Little Debbies and a cup of coffee
This statement sums it all up. The bottom line is most of the local "fans" arent fans at all. They are casual fans. They are not diehards. Its really that simple.

Yea, the stadium blows, but people who go to games for the "stadium experience" arent real fans. They are ****ing yuppies. Diehard fans go to games to see the games live. They give around 2 ****s as to what the stadium is like.
Just get real about it and say what it is. Most of the Miami Dolphins' diehard fans are scattered all over the country. They became fans when the team was dominant in the 70's and stuck with them. Either that or like myself, they became huge fans when Marino dazzled them with those awesome throws in the 80's and stuck with them ever since. Some of the diehards were perhaps a result of being raised by a father who was one of those 2 types of people.
Its the same reason the top "national" teams are the Steelers, Cowboys, Packers, 9ers, Pats, Redskins, and Phins. They built a lot of fans all over different parts of the country with dynasties or special players. Simple as that. There are very few diehard phins fans who actually live in Miami. Its a god damned shame really.
