    Gee, one playoff appearance in what 8 years....no wonder the fans aren't coming. Consistant winning will bring the fans back, plain and simple. Not just a one year shot. The mismanagement of the franchise is the reason for low attendance.
    Secondarily, should the Dolphins move, I will never watch another one of their games (or any NFL games), I've been a loyal fan of the MIAMI Dolphins, and them alone.

    Even when the stadium is not empty there are a TON of the opposing team fans.

    You don't see that anywhere else. Only in miami!!!!!

    Jags, bucs, chargers, raiders and chiefs management would disagree with your previous statement.
    Jets suck, Bills suck, Patriots suck.

    look at big market teams new york or philly, or small market teams like buffalo or greenbay...it doesnt matter what they do...win or lose people are going to show up (not saying they wont complain but they will show up)

    Miami is at a disadvantage in that if the dolphins suck, I have 300,000,001 more things to do if its a nice day out and 200,000,002 if the weather is bad...all florida teams (outside of UF but we wont get into the Jorts wearing rednecks) have this issue...

    In the end winning is the only thing that will bring people back...and not just 1 good season...we've been through 13 years of flat out sucking and havent been to a superbowl since 84...its gonna take a few seasons...

    people keep saying the NFL wont let ross leave and I dont know why? the NFL let Houston leave, it let Cleveland leave...if ross decides he's leaving why would the NFL block him especially if it brings a team back to LA...

    It would serve Miami right if the dolphins move! The new generation of fans down there are the epitome of the entitlement generation! I think Puerto Rico would be a better destination though!

    I am sure people in Baltimore were chuckling about the Colts "never moving away," until the Irsays filled up the moving vans and took the team to Indianapolis. The bottom line to Ross, and every other NFL owner, is not pleasing the fans, it is about MONEY...and that speaks a lot louder than anything else.

    Ross will never move the team he isnt in this for money. The Dolphins have been a massive money drain for him.

    However if attendances and tv figures dont improve and the next owner isnt a fan or a local, the people of Miami have plenty to worry about. Especially if the stadium doesbt tie the team to the city.
