Not to be a Debbie Downer, as I wasn't in attendance, but what was the percentage of Muts fans to Marlins fans? I was there in 2008 and the crowd was 60/40 in the Marlins favor. It looked like a good crowd, hopefully the attendance will continue throughout the year.

 

 

It's usually about a 50-50 split against the Mets, IMO.

 

Wasn't there, but I don't think it being the Mets had anything to do with capacity. It's opening week, we're bound to get good sales anyways. The Mets fans probably just drove up the price on third party ticket sales.

I was there Friday night and the Mets were pretty quiet, lol. I was in section 450 and very few were there. I didn't see many in the there, but I got there about 6:45 so went straight in. I don't think the Mutts attendance was very high that night in comparison to the Marlins.

I know its only been 1 game, but how often do we lead the league in attendance??

BTW, this is based on percentage capacity.

If that number mattered, they wouldnt sell over the capacity. For whatever reason the Marlins have listed the capacity at 37,000 (or whatever it is), but it doesnt mean anything if you'll sell anyone a ticket who shows up. The capacity is supposed to equal the number of seats at the venue. In the Marlins case its 65,000 (for baseball).

 

 

However, it is nice to get a lot of people there. Hopefully with the new stadium, they'll get 30,000+ for every game.

Are you suggesting it's not fair game to limit the amount of seats by closing off sections? They play in a football stadium and are a small market team.
