Florida has never done well supporting sports. Look at how successful the Rays have been compared to how many they draw in.
Hell, the easiest sport to fill a stadium is college football, as you have a built in base of rabid students to bring to your stadium. The Hurricanes have been at the very least a respectable team since the 80's. They still struggle to draw fans and don't even have their own stadium! That tells you all you need to really know. Drawing sellout crowds for the Marlins would either take half a decade of playoffs with a couple WS wins or a complete overhaul of the culture there in regards to their attitude toward sports...and probably an owner that wasn't an opportunistic thief in bed with the commissioner. Remember how the Expos weren't allowed to expand rosters?
