The Miami Marlins are not going to the playoffs this season. We have a plan for the off-season and some good news for Spring Training next season. None of that changes the frustrations over a second straight losing season. Miami Marlins fans are fed up with the losing and have no interest in embracing it. The idea that we’re helping other teams win and get into the playoffs is angering fans, so what should The Fish do? Was this a mistake?
Miami Marlins fans are frustrated by the team’s Twitter account.
The Miami Marlins Twitter account tried to be funny and joke about spoiling the playoff chase between the Philadelphia Phillies and Milwaukee Brewers. The Miami Marlins fans weren’t laughing…
This season angered a lot of Miami Marlins fans and the Twitter account making jokes is not getting the desired event. Fans want to see meaningful changes and a serious approach to the off-season, they don’t want to hear jokes about helping other teams. The fan backlash was pretty harsh and probably surprised the account team.
Is Miami Marlins management becoming oblivious to the fans’ feelings towards the season? The Miami Marlins fans are frustrated and making jokes makes them feel as if their feelings are being invalidated and ignored. They want actions not jokes.
I don’t want to think this, but is it possible that Miami Marlins management is just not taking the situation seriously enough? Is it not understanding or relating to how the fans are feeling about the season? Fan surveys and fan benefit events could really help build some goodwill between the Miami Marlins fans and the team itself.
It really shouldn’t matter if the Miami Marlins helped another team win or not. It doesn’t benefit the team or the fans. The fans could’ve found it funny, but only if the team itself was in the playoffs or in playoff contention as well. As one fan put it “they’re in the playoffs and we’re not”.
Miami Marlins fans are tired of losing and the second that management realizes the impact of this, the better it will get for the team.
