24/7 Wall St.: 13 Pro Teams Running Out of Fans

2 of 15

13. Miami Dolphins

10-yr. attendance decline: -17.1 percent
2001-2002 W-L record: 11-5 (1st in AFC East)
2011-2012 W-L record: 6-10 (3rd in AFC East)
League championships last decade: None

Of all teams in the NFL, none has seen as big a decline in attendance as the Miami Dolphins. In the 2001-2002 season, the team brought in an average of 73,470 fans to watch home games, the seventh-highest in the NFL. By the 2011-2012 season, that figure dropped to 60,866, the fifth-lowest. In the last 10 full seasons, the team has gone 60-84 and has had three consecutive losing seasons in a row. Its worst season by far was the 2007-2008 season, when the Dolphins won just one game. The team isn’t performing stellar this year either. Under the direction of Joe Philbin, the sixth head coach in 10 years, the team’s current record is 4-6. (AP Photo/Lynne Sladky)
