I think that on top of all of this, Stephen Ross needs to hold a press conference and address the fans about the GM, head coach, and Incognito/Martin fiasco. If he does what he wants to without any regard to the fans he will feel it in his wallet.

Dolphins doing all they can to entice season ticket buyers

The Dolphins are hoping everything from trips to Sea World to a movie night at the stadium will entice local fans to buy season tickets.

In a letter sent to prospective season ticket buyers, the Dolphins detailed some of the perks that will go along with owning season tickets. Some season ticket buyers will get the opportunity to attend a yacht party, while others will get to have their fantasy drafts in a stadium suite.

“The key here is we didn’t just make a name change and throw in a bobblehead and call it membership. We’ve committed to making these good events so people will see the value in their membership 12 months a year,” Dolphins chief revenue officer Jeremy Walls said, via the Sun-Sentinel. “Most of these events are in the offseason. Most include player or alumni involvement and many of them include food and beverage.”

Maybe this plan will convince a few people to buy season tickets, but there’s little doubt that the best way to get fans in the stands is to play winning football. The Dolphins haven’t had a winning record in any of the last five seasons. Until that changes, free trips to Sea World won’t make local fans want to buy season tickets.

From the Sun Sentinel ...

Craig Davis wrote:
The Dolphins had the largest increase in paid attendance in the NFL in 2013, a 12-percent bump to 64,319 following several years of decline. Walls said the increase was largely driven by group sales targeting schools, nonprofit organizations, youth sports and churches.

Nonetheless, they averaged 85.5 percent of seating capacity, the lowest in the AFC and better than only the Redskins' 84.2 percent league-wide.


Craig Davis wrote:
Despite the Dolphins' late-season collapse and embarrassment of the Martin/Incognito bullying incident, Walls said season-ticket sales for 2014 are showing promise.

"The day after the tough [season-ending] loss we took in 43 new membership deposits. You could argue that could be the toughest day for us to get new members on board," Walls said, adding. "What our team on the business side can control is our fans' experience. We're already ahead of last year's pace as it relates to new membership."

Ted Wells hasn't even stepped up yet. Too bad he couldn't have released his findings last season. Now he is dragging that cloud closer to next season.

Are the Dolphins the new raiders?
