not really it's just that we are really mad at the marlins. I know a lot of people use the marlins as an example but they don't realise that many people here hate the marlins because of the stadium deal as well as the gross mismanagement of the team. I personally haven't gone to a game sense that deal happened and don't plan on ever supporting that team again. but as for the 3 other sports located here attendance continues to be high.

Miami is not a good sports draw ....... they just aren't

The dolphins have finished the following in attendance counting back from 2012 - 29th, 28th, 16th, 19th, 20th ....... they haven't been a draw in a long time even though that is the franchise that has the most ingrained history in the area.

The Hurricanes haven't drawn in a while and being that they are a relatively small private university they need the local support.

The Panthers have broken the top 20 in attendance 3 times in the past dozen years and have never been in the top 15, typically they are in the 22-25 range

The Marlins are well documented.

Miami will get out and support a winner - will be interesting if they ever had two winners going at the same time to see what happens.

The heat have been at capacity the past 3 years - though in 2010 they were 15th @ 90% capacity and similar in 2009, in 2008 they had a pretty good capacity (8th in the league in attendance) .... 2005-2007 were really good years as well ...... 2004 not so much 24th in the league and 78% capacity '01, '02 & '03 were more of the same as far as poor to mediocre attendance .... basically, they'll draw when they have a legit title contending team and not so much when they dont

The only reason why I think Miami will get a team is the David Beckham thing. He has some partnerships in the works that want to put a team down in Miami. In no way do I consider Miami to be a good pro sports town, the connections and setup seems to be there to get an MLS team back in the Magic City.

If Beckham is putting money into it I would love to see it happen and screw him over! If not then not so much.

Something tells me that Beckham won't be associated with anything relating to American soccer from now on...

Why does Miami even have a NHL team?

Miami doesn't Fort lauderdale does. and fort lauderdale is full of new yorkers so that's where the home support comes from.

Fort Lauderdale is still in the same sports market as Miami.
