    Miami Marlins

    Ok, this really made me mad. Joe Buck mentioned about the Marlins name change from Florida to Miami. Ok, it started trending on Twitter. Most of the people did not know of this change; a change that has been announced for at least three years now. I just can't believe how bad some fans are and don't know anything other than "their" team. Well, some don't even know that.

    So, my question is, did you know about the change, and do you agree with my frustration?

    yes and don't understand.
    You're frustrated about the name change? Or because people didn't know about it?

    The only time I pay attention to the Marlins is the week before the trade deadline.
    "Last week I helped my friend stay put. It's a lot easier'n helpin' 'em move. I just went over to his house and made sure that he did not start to load **** into a truck."

    The latter. I'm frustrated because so many people are oblivious to something that has been announced for over two years now.

    And Edbabbs, it takes place next year.

    I knew about it, I think it's a silly change and it doesn't surprise that people didn't know, it doesn't revolve around the Red Sox or yankees.

    I wouldn't bet on it. They've only averaged 17,000 a game this year and have closed the upper deck for the rest of the season.

    Loria is kind of a cancer to MLB organizations.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I knew about it the day the ballpark plans were announced as approved.

    I kind of thought it was well known, but I see that it wasn't

    Same here. Guess not. What "troubles" me more is the false perception most people have on the Marlins. As soon as the Marlins trade one player fans mock them, calling it a fire sale. That, or people continuously knock them by saying something to the effect of "oh, well they'll just trade him in a year or two."

    Don't understand why this upsets you, 21.
    Being a Fan isn't a profession. You don't have to be GOOD at it.
    Or in the know. Or even up to date.
    That's the nice thing. Fans get to choose how much time and effort they put into their "fandom".
