Brilliant move by Loria

This is an incredibly intelligent, and strategic move on Loria's part.

 

Everyone is well aware that fan support, while growing moderately, has been dismal for such a large market area.

 

Miami has always been a football town, and the Marlins have had a tough time competing for their share of sports dollars.

 

The Dolphins are pathetic right now. The Heat are doing well with Shaq. The Panthers are non-existent.

 

What a beautiful opportunity to shift some of that support to the Marlins.

 

After the 1997 dismantling of the team, the 2003 WS championship was met with skepticism by the fan base. Losing Pudge didn't help.

 

Signing Delgado, Lowell, LoDuca, Castillo long term has demonstrated this ownership is committed to winning, and no doubt will instill confidence in the fan base.

 

Everyone loves a winner. Expect attendance to jump this year. Even with the higher ticket prices.

 

Brilliant move by Loria.

I wonder if they will publish any reports of if season tickets went up at the announcement of Delgado being signed...I've read 2 or 3 people on this board alone that have bought some sort of package since then. Going to be fun reading positive articles(or at least I hope) from the local newspapers tomorrow morning.

 

Loria is the man...now get that freakin stadium done

I have to admit all this Delgado fervor has gotten to me.

 

I planned to drop my season tickets in favor of single game tickets this year....primarily due to the doubling of ST prices.

 

Now that the FO has shown a strong commitment to this team this off-season.....I am calling my account rep tomorrow to renew. :thumbup

The Dolphins have one bad year and it's like you guys think they're gonna dismantle the team and move to Siberia. This is one of the winningest franchises in professional sports. Their fan support will be there once they start winning again (which is very soon, IMO).
