The Marlins are bad enough on the field, but they're making a bad name for themselves OFF the field as well
So how are the Marlins treating the Leons? They're threatening to sue them.
The Leons had an issue with their seats, since the Marlins added a billboard midseason that obstructs their view. They asked the Marlins to either change their seats or they wouldn't renew their tickets.
That led the Marlins to say that they'll sue them for nonpayment.
This seems like a risky business proposition. The Marlins traded away a ton of stars in the offseason, and as the Leons say, they're basically a Double-A caliber team.
The Marlins should be begging this couple to forgive them, and they should be giving them whatever seats they want. I guarantee there are plenty available. This couple is paying $25,000 per year for their seats, and I guarantee that there aren't a ton of people willing to do that.
Even if the Marlins win this lawsuit, which seems unlikely, they'll be taking a bigger loss in the long run.
