    Will they be the Monaco of the MLS? Star players, low attendance.

    AS Monaco has low attendance because the stadium capacity is small though, isn't it?

    Don't forget about the Panthers abysmal attendance. They do have incredible incentives for the few season ticket holders that they have.

    But to be fair, the arena is way outside of Miami proper. Basically the same situation as Dallas and Chicago.

    I'm not a Panthers fan but I can say with a great deal of certainty that the location of BB&T has very little to do with low attendance. The arena is right off the Sawgrass Expressway which runs into I-75 and not that far from Miami.

    And why would they even want a hockey arena in a city (Miami) that is primarily populated by Cubans, Dominicans. Venezuelans and Colombians?

    Miami is just a really bad sports town. If you're not the U (and to some extent the Dolphins),no one cares unless it's playoff time.

    Panthers has been a mediocre team for decades, hard to judge attendance if they don't win, in Miami.

    I think we should give miami a chance.
    People said Atlanta was a bad sports town as well, but Atlanta united show that if you do something properly, then people will turn up.

    Yeah, but since ATLU was announced they had a massive fan following and support. I don't see that in Miami and they are so close. They could be the 1st expansion team no to sell out their opener.

    I think if Miami get the nod, they should postpone coming in for a season so they can get things right.

    I think it is without question that they won't start until 2019 at the earliest.
