Nothing like a good ol' flamewar on a Saturday Night:

(sorry, don't have cut and paste abilities with this comp.)

 

Basically, Treanor is skeptical about the 30,000 att. number of tonight and said South Floridians should be ashamed of not supporting the team more. He also says the amount of opposing team fans that get seats irks him too.

Its probably because when the Marlins are at home he feels like there still away

if he wants to pay for my tickets then ill go every god damn day. but until then he should shut his f***ing mouth. Besides the fact that I love this team more than anything, why would i spend $120 dollars on half way decent seats that give me neck spasms by the end of the game because i have it turned at a 90 degree angle for 3 hours, then 7 god damn dollars for a freaking beer, etc. I can honestly say there isnt another franchise i like more than the Marlins, but these players(anyone who speaks out against the fans) have to take a look at the situation... then speak.

This gets old...we all know Miami has treated the Marlins poorly....they seem to like the Dolphins much more.

 

Marlins are 4 games out....we should have more fans there.

 

 

Well...we had over 30,000 tonight...4th highest total for the season.

 

Kind of bad timing to bitch about attendance...

Was there ACTUALLY 30,000 in attendance though? The article makes it sound like there was less.

Well, you don't need MVP box seats. Some of the best seats in the house are upper deck and fish tank.

 

What, do you not want to slum with us fish tankers?

The Fish have some of the best values in baseball. Cry about prices elsewhere.

While I agree that some of the seats have horrible and uncomfortable viewing angles, I doubt they cost that much and I've found other portions of the stadium to be nice and extremely cheap. The Marlins actually offer some pretty great ticket plans and if I lived in South Florida I would utilize them.

We did have a good fan base ..... up to 1997. If anyone remember, if you are old enough anyway, (or can find the stats online for attendance) you will remember that the stadium had always a decent amount of people until the first fire sale. The town just never regained trust on the management. Not even the 2003 WS helped that much.

I've said it before - I'll say it again:

 

Matt, concentrate first and foremost on learning how to hit the baseball.......funny I don't see you talking about THAT in the article!

Agreed. I already wasn't a big Treanor fan. He must of called Burnett on his cell. Oh no wait, Burnett sucks too. Maybe Burnett paid him some of his 11 mil to say that. More reason for me to like Olivo. He should know (after being in the minors for 1,000 years) that most people have to work during those weekday games or just cannot make it because of work. I try to make it to as many as my wallet allow.

Welcome to MLB ticket prices and concession prices.....don't forget you get hit hard with parking before you have to worry about the gate admission

While the attendance last night was alright, if not 30,000, probably in the 21-22K range, I can't argue with what Treanor says. It must be at least a little frustrating to be playing so well as a team and then come out on most nights to so many empty seats. Everyone on this board knows the reasons (or excuses depending on how you look at things) so to go over them again is just a waste of time. It just sounds bad coming from a backup catcher who is hitting .219, though that doesn't make his points any less valid.....sports fans in South Florida should be supporting this team.
