I'm not trying to defend the guy, but, as an NL East fan (Phillies) I watched the Marlins make their biggest push (by far) in FA last season and their fanbase responded by giving them, I believe, the worst turnout in the season of a new stadium for a franchise in history.
Now, this situation more than likely would have occurred whether or not Miami's stadium was filled to capacity or as empty as it was, but, I certainly imagine it makes it easier for an owner to dismantle a team when he sees no correlation between high payroll and high ticket sales.
