Shifting MarlinsNation.com Into a New Era
We have been a faithful representation of Marlins fans for a while now; ever since we officially launched this site back in 2005. We have always sought to be a voice for the Marlins fan as it was always painfully obvious that we were underrepresented when it came to the national conversation and the state of Major League Baseball. We were mocked for being a finicky fan base, only embracing our winning teams of 1997 and 2003. We were charged with being a franchise that only bought its title back in 1997, only to shock the world with the title run in 2003 with one of the lowest payrolls in all of baseball.
For years, this franchise has been bemoaned for being cheap, with a sprinkling of fans in attendance at home games. Now, with a new stadium in the heart of Miami, and flashy new uniforms, and a growing and rejuvenated fan base, we are excited to embrace the dawning of a new era for the Miami Marlins. We have also decided to take our site into the future by transitioning it from just another blog site dedicated to the Marlins, to being a social network allowing for Marlins fans to come together and just talk baseball. Some of the new features are:
- Groups around different subjects to allow fans to dictate the conversation
- Member profiles where our members can friend one another and form deeper connections and conversations
- Forums for discussions
- Messaging to get in direct contact with anyone on the network
Just as the Marlins have evolved into what is becoming a flagship franchise, so MarlinsNation.com must also evolve. We need to represent our proud franchise and our community as it continues its history here in South Florida. Join today and represent your team and your city.
