FINS QUICKLY SELL OUT THEIR PLAYOFF GAME

The Miami Dolphins barely broke a sweat in selling out their stadium for Sunday’s home playoff game against the Ravens.
Per the Miami Herald, the Dolphins moved all 25,000 seats on Monday morning.
So while the Cardinals, Chargers, and Vikings might have trouble moving their merchandise, the Fins have had no trouble at all.

  1. I’m lost, what is a sellout? You can still purchase tickets to this game on Ticketmaster (I processed all the way to payment processing).

  2. >>>I guess 24,000 Marylanders are on their way to Florida this week.<<<
    More than that already live in South Florida. That’s the Dolphins’ biggest problem: Many of the people at any home game have moved to the Sunshine State from the opponent’s home state, and thus are there to cheer on their old team.

  3. Check ticketmaster guys, tickets for the game are still available. Looks like the Herald got it wrong, at least right now.

    Sure are. And buying tickets for the Tennessee game too. So if we (Ravens)lose, there will probably be some Teneessee tickets for sale right in the stadium.

    “I guess we don’t have to worry about back to back AFC – NFC Championship games at Giant Stadium” would be succinct, except no one with any NFL intelligence or knowledge of Betty Favre would have thought that possible, really, at any point. It was always gonna be the Pats or the Dolphins.
    Betty Favre couldn’t even deliver a convincing fake goodbye speech yesterday. He was more monotone than Shaq. Please — PLEASE! — Betty, say goodbye and go home.
    But mark my word: this will get ugly. Betty is a guy has deep psychological problems and playing football for a living has only covered up the real roots. He’s as lost without football as anyone I’ve ever seen, it’s just gonna take a little time for him to implode. And plowing the back 40 in Bootsville, Mississippi or wherever he lives ain’t gonna help.

  6. i’m very happy for the miami dolphins organization, players, and all the fans. 🙂
    wish i could be there to support the team. i’m all the way across the country, however, will be rooting them on TV!

  7. I hope they enjoy the Fin’s only playoff game this year. The Ravens are hitting their stride at the right time and are arguably the hottest team going into the playoffs. It’s one and done for the Fins. Count it.

    You sound just like a jet’s fan…
    KEY WORD(arguably)…the Fins HAVE won 9 of their last 10 games.

  9. I’m a Baltimoron heading to South Beach. Sun, girls in bikinis, and a Ravens playoff win! It doesn’t get much better than this.

  10. $10 says Ray-Ray, Ed Reed, and Mcgahee get in some sort of trouble before this Sunday
    Dolphins 24 Ravens 6

    Obviously you ARE a BALTIMORON if you think the ravens will win and you’ll get laid by the HOTTEST CHICKS IN THE COUNTRY!!!!

  12. You Fin fans are delusional. The Fins have one of, if not the weakest schedules in the league. They played the two weakest divisions this year for 8 of their games. Who have they beat? Did you guys forget that we completely bullied you and owned you once already? And we’ve progressed more than you have, we stand toe to toe with teams like the Steelers. I understand that you guys are excited, and rightfully so, but the Ravens are playing at a completley different level than the Fins. We have Superbowl aspirations, you guys would be more than content getting one playoff win. Bring on the real competition.

  13. As a die-hard Dolphins fan and season ticket holder, I can attest that there is no other city in the country that can “bandwagon” as hard as Miami. They did it with the Heat, they did it with the Marlins and now again with the Dolphins.
    Why were there 25,000 seats available in the first place? Because these people don’t buy season tickets. You don’t have these stories for many other teams because their season ticket inventory is either (a) sold out or (b) mostly sold out.
    I’ll be impressed when there is a waiting list for season ticket or, at least, you can only buy them in the upper deck end zone, top rows. Until then, hearing that we sell out a game is just depressing because it means tickets were available in the first place.

  14. We’re happy for ’em. Imagine that, excitement when there’s a lot of playoff tickets sold for a team that was 1-15 last year!
    Again, your rabble rousing ways need some improvement, Florio. *yawn*

  15. Last year when the Dolphins were the worst team in the universe they some did win one game ……. vs the Ravens.

  16. I’m a big Dolphins fan and I live in D.C. I NEVER see or meet Ravens fans at bars or anywhere else for that matter. There are simply not many of them in D.C. or Maryland. This is Skins country.
    That being said, I hate the city of Baltimore and think it is a filthy p.o.s. I don’t think their fan base(99% white trash) is rabid enough to travel to Miami for a game.

    Sorry but you’ve been very misinformed. Redskins fans in Baltimore?? That’s the funniest quote of the day. That’s like saying there’s more Ravens fans in Pittsburgh than Steelers’ fans. If you’re gonna talk trash, make sure your team can back it up, and as we all know, and as they’ve shown earlier this year, the Fins arn’t in the same league as the Ravens. We’re thinkin Superbowl, you’re thinkin how nice it is to make the playoffs.

  18. I can’t believe these cities are having trouble selling out playoff games. they should have their teams taken from them and put where fans give a damn

    You do realize that the Fins team that lost to Baltimore earlier is a different team. They have come a long way from that point. Now, will they have enough to win? I don’t know. On paper, Baltimore is a better team, but then again on Paper so were the PAts, Jets and Nills.
    Baltimore should be the favorite, but anything can happen when you get to the playoffs. Personally, I’d love to see them win so we can read your excuses as to why they Bal lost.
    So Mr. bigshot.. Are you SO confident in Baltimore winning that you are willing to give me 1000 – 1 odds?

    It’s the NFL, every team has a shot. But the Ravens are arguably the hottest team in the league. I was gonna be moddest about it but i’ve been reading Fins fans popping off at the mouth saying that “of course they’re gonna win”, and i’m like ?!?!!?!? I feel like i’m takin crazy pills. The Fins are the weakest team in the AFC playoffs, by far. Anything can happen, but I just realistically don’t see it happening. We’re playing really really good rite now. You can say the fins won 9 in a row or whatever, but they didn’t play anyone. I’m not being cocky, just keeping it real. and the Ravens are the better team, obviously.
