    If this team ever starts winning consistently again, there won't be a problem with attendance anywhere north of the Dade-Broward line. They could build a 100,000 seat stadium in West Broward and fill it easily. ALL of S.Fla. would rally around the team. Best case.

    If this team stays mediocre and somehow got stuck in an urban setting, nice try getting folks to drive from Sunrise or Weston or anywhere north of Miami Gardens Drive to venture down there for a game. Worst case.

    It would be interesting to see just how FEW fans the heat draws from outside Dade County. Or even how few drive up from South Dade. The heat fan base is a niche fan base centered on urban Miami and Miami Beach. Different demos.

    We were top 10 in attendance during the Wannstedt years.

    And now we have the worst, by a large margin if I'm not mistaken.

    I am pretty sure San Diego and Jacksonville have worse attendance.

    Have a link?? San Diego was blacked out almost every week when I lived there, and the stadium was filled with Dolphin fans the few times I went.

    Huh, look at that.

    Probably wouldnt have gotten around to looking into that point, appreciate people making that claim. It provided more evidence that the Rams, Chargers, and Raiders are probably going to be the team that moves.

    That's down right sad. What is that percentage column? We are dead last in that.

    On a positive note, we were 11th in attendance on the road. People still like watching the fins beyond south Florida.

    Percentage means nothing, its butts in seats. We have one of the larger stadiums. as for road attendence you cant really totally judge by that because we could have just traveled to placed that do good attendence wise
