Dolphins having issues at the gate Craig Thomas

According to the Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson, the Dolphins ticket sales are sluggish.

“Not only have a couple hundred premium seat holders stiffed the Dolphins on 2011 payments, but season ticket sales are in the low 40,000s, the worst in 28 years,” wrote Jackson. “The team hopes to end up around 45,000, way down from 61,000 in 2006 and 51,000 last year. We’ll need a near miracle to avoid a few TV blackouts.”
