Mentioned within a compelling editorial from Dan LeBatard of the Miami Herald regarding the struggles of the Dolphins is a compelling piece of news regarding the challenges the team is facing at the box office.
Per LeBatard, the team currently is “laboring” to keep the season-ticket base at 30,000.
In contrast, the team had roughly 60,000 season-ticket holders from 1995 through 2005.
It’s a stunning fall from grace for a franchise that is now struggling to be noticed among the other sports teams in its own town. And it’s a downward spiral that could continue indefinitely, unless and until the Dolphins find a way to win on a consistent basis.
