    This is all via Ben Volin and the DolfansNYC group via twitter. They talked to Mike Dee about it at web weekend.

    - It's now official that there will be a new logo next season.

    - New logo is a mix of the retro logo with a modern feel.

    - Navy will still be part of the logo.

    - A few Dolphins legends saw it and loved it.

    So, there you have it. I'm actually surprised they're keeping navy as an accent color because I feel most didn't care for it. It will probably be unveiled in the spring and new uniforms will be coming too.

    Also, we are wearing aqua jerseys Thursday night.

    It's not the logo that needs changing, it's the uni..that needs to go retro with a modern feel.

    The old logo looks like ****, but the colors are much better.

    Not sure this rules that out. Look at how often the Seahawks have altered stuff.

    Nice to finally just get the much awaited change over with. The navy could be interesting if done right.

    I'm surprised they're already showing it to people. Wonder how long it'll take to leak out.

    meh logo was never an issue for me. I would rather see a color scheme change (orange primary, a blue aqua secondary) with blue aqua alternates. maybe a design update. nothing extreme. id be happy.

    I guess I'm in the minority, but I welcome a uniform change. The logo is pretty dated. I have no problem with the look getting modernized. Now, whether the changes are going to look 'good'... I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

    We are in the minority. I think I am in the extra minority because I think there should be logo/uniform changes for all teams every 5 to 10 years.

    For some reason, this uni is oddly reminiscent of the 2001 Hurricanes uniform... it just grew on me a little (that's. What she said)

    Yeah, last I checked we are updated with Nike uniforms made in the 21st century. New materials. New cut & style.
    Our logo is traditional and recognized around the world. It should remain that way rather than adopting a drastic new one that seems more appropriate for a South Beach shipping company than an NFL helmet.

    And what would you have had it look like back then? We're the Dolphins, and we started with a logo of a Dolphin. Not sure what you're expecting here.

    Well, first thing I would go for is not an animal wearing a helmet. You don't even find those on Arena football helmets.

    Arena Football didn't exist 40+ years ago.
    And of course no one else will do it b/c it'd look like they're copying us. There can be only one team with its mascot wearing a helmet, and that's us..... and originally so at that.

    LOL, yea, that is right. Only one team can be a Saturday morning cartoon show.

    Looking like copying didn't stop the Buccaneers from copying the Raiders. Or the many other teams that have copied the Raiders.

    I understand your commitment to tradition, I just don't agree with it. I want a complete new image. A new coach and a new QB is a good start. I'm just sick and tired of all of the tradition talk. 12 years without a playoff win (12/30/00) tells me the tradition is dead and it's time to start anew.

    This is why I specifically didn't buy any stuff this year.

    I am hoping that the new logo will make me want to buy a bunch.

    I am partial to a logo that accents the "M"

    Actually, if we start winning again with this new coach & new QB then our tradition will be renewed, making it silly to start anew amidst it. :)

    If we're being honest here, the past dozen'ish years saw a divergence from tradition with the changing of the logo to the current cartoony looking one while also altering the uniform's appearance, so you could argue that reverting BACK to tradition is what the team needs more than moving even further away from it.

    Yeah, I bought a Tannehill jersey because I couldn't wait. Other than that, I just bought a few throwback hats.

    The logo won't be a major change, that's already been said by Mike Dee.
