Marlins Ticket Line has 4 people

I was certain every possible joke about baseball attendance in Florida had been exhausted over the past 20 years. Then I saw the tweet by Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post that included the photo above from the Miami Marlins Winter Warm Up event Saturday and realized we havenít even scratched the surface.
The Marlins have used up all of the goodwill a new taxpayer-funded stadium gave them just a year ago. They've made many missteps, but the massive giveaway with the Blue Jays turned even hardcore Fish fans against them. And it has left them with a line for tickets that's four people long. That's not including this guy, who wore a Blue Jays cap to the event in protest.
Later on, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald published another photo from the fan fest that is somehow more depressing than Capozzi's: A completely deserted concession stand.

The Marlins might have more players at camp (74) than fans who showed up to buy single-game tickets on the first day they were available. Seriously!
This is all the doing of owner Jeffrey Loria who, according to these fans, needs to be traded. Now that's a line people would stand in if it would make him sell the team.

You don't have to like baseball to appreciate what this fanbase has done.
SOC has nothing on them

Loria is definitely a blight. I believe that Huizinga owned the Panthers when they were an expansion team and had a fair amount of success with them as well.

Yeah the Panthers went to a Stanley Cup Finals with him as owner. And even the Marlins did what every fan of a low budget baseball team always complains about... he went out and spent a bunch of money. Then when they fielded a championship team and people didn't show up, he supposedly still lost money, traded everyone and sold the team.
