    It sounds like they are cognizant of our tradition, don't wanna stray, but want to modernize it a bit...cool.

    Didn't we change our jersey color a bit to more to a matte finish, more of the old school aqua?, remember we saw Dansby at that function out west wearing it, it was a really nice color, not that stuff we wear now, but it was not polished?

    I think if you took that picture of Zonk in Aqua, and you started from there, you could come up with something cool as sh87.

    Yeah, but never to this extreme. It's basically a certainty at this point.

    I'm just happy it won't be dramatic and the basic design and colors will be the same.

    Just use the helmet that the Dolphin is wearing in the current logo.

    I like the mockup FinD, especially the Dolphin. I think I would rather see the current ring of fire instead of the old one. And get rid of the grey and white lines inside the sun.
    As far as the helmet on the dolphin goes, Id be impartial either way.

    Read post above yours JD..

    I think the majority would like to see our throwbacks designs, with a bit of freshness to them, and we'd all be happy..

    For example..http://www.google.com/search?q=larr...hl=en&client=safari#biv=i|9;d|PtgdlCIVNz43ZM:

    You give us this Mike dee, and I will kiss your *** in front of time square on new years eve..and I'm sure a lot of folks would pucker up with me.

    That's the damn color aqua we need...damn that's beautiful, who's 79 in that pic, I forget, but damn does he look bad ***.

    The main positive thing is you can buy all the gear with the current logo (which I like) on it at clearance! Before they start selling it again as a throwback logo in 4-5 years. They sell tons of merch with the old 1966-1996 "vintage" logo/script on it.

    The logo will still be similar, just with different details on the Dolphin and no "M" helmet on its head. Note that they also said its not a guarantee they'll change it.

    The article mentions the M on the helmets which made me think of "bonerparts" mockup (From reddit.com/r/nfl)

    http://imgur.com/a/RRPq3


    I'm not sure that I love the overall uniform mockups - but I could get used to the helmet. If nothing else, I'd buy the **** out of an orange shirt with that offwhite "sprayed" / faded / retro looking log on it.

    Not sure if the above link was shared on the forums before, but thought it was worth tossing up in this thread.

    That will look kinda like the Marlins wouldn't it? I like the concept, but I hope the execution is better.

    That won't be our logo. Mike Dee already said it wouldn't go a drastic change, and that's a drastic change.

    To me that looks like **** in terms of a logo for a sports team. I wouldn't buy anything with that logo on it.

    So long as they win games, I don't care if they wear pink tutu's, just win games - the rest will take care of itself.

    Crap, I'm still getting used to the one they have now! I hope they don't come out with some pseudo Dolphin Stadium logo.

    The Dolphins Facebook page posted the current logo and asked people to "like" the picture if they are 100% happy with the logo as is, and "comment" if they want a change.

    There are almost 6,000 "likes"...and 1,000 "comments". According to that, for every 7 fans, 6 want to keep it as is.

    If they're really seeking feedback from the fans, that tells me they're going to keep it as is.

    Sorry but the dolphin we have may be traditional but it's also mildly ******ed.

    A dolphin with a helmet? Is the idea that we are so stupid we can't understand this is related to a football team?

    I live the fins but I've never understood this ardent support of a logo that is pretty hideous.

    I suck at the whole photoshop thing, so could somebody please change all the Navy blue color to black and outline she starburst in black.I think a little black in the uniform would set it off.

    I hope that the change is subtle, but I don't see any need for one. First Wonder Woman, then Superman, now they want to take away the Dolphins too.

    Ack! If it ain't broke, then don't fix it!

    based on the facebook reaction, I don't think they change the logo, but I would like an updated look, or at least get rid of the navy, And the jersey needs and update, and by this i mean just get rid of the drop shadow

    That mock-up up there is pretty cool, mix between the original and current. Only thing is the color seems a bit off, would probably look a little darker.
