    That 01-02 stat was rather suprising. Anyway, this is what happens when you are irrelevant for a decade +.

    Why are the Dolphins more deserving than teams like the Bills, Chiefs, Rams, Raiders, Jaguars, Buccaneers, Browns, Redskins, Lions, etc.?

    Who would have thought having more losing seasons in the past 9 years than the team had in the previous 35+ years could have a negative impact on the fanbase?

    Having a clueless owner like Huizenga for years and years doesn't help either, especially when he hands the keys to the franchise to an over the hill huckster like Parcells who, in turn, hands them over to an incompetent like Sparano.

    Ross is lucky the team still has a fanbase.

    5 of those teams have been to/won a SB more recently than the Dolphins. They've also managed to win a few playoff games since the turn of the century.

    Miami Dolphins running out of fans


    The Miami Dolphins have had the biggest decline in attendance of any NFL team.
    Although the Miami Dolphins have struggled this season, the team does rank highest in the National Football League for one thing – the highest decline in attendance.
    According to a 24/7 Wall St. study, the Dolphins had the seventh-highest attendance in the NFL for the 2001-2002 season with 73,470 fans watching home games. For the 2011-2012 season, attendance had fallen to the fifth-lowest in the league with only 60,866 fans in the stands.
    Attendance at Dolphins games has declined 17.1 percent over the last 10 years. Although it is not the highest decline by percentage, the team has fallen quite far from among the highest in attendance to among the lowest. The decline is attributed to the teams’ record and having three consecutive losing seasons.

    If you win games, they will come. It's that simple.

    I'm sure this is NOT related to the Dolphins frequent losing record and QB change, and not making the playoffs several years in a row...
