    On the new logo, the bottom black spot looks like a *****.

    New jags logo is better, but still pretty bad if you ask me.

    Probably a direct function of the Jaguars lacking a long history.

    So of the prototypes that one article hinted at, "not a drastic change on one, WTF logo on the other.." etc. (I can't find the article now so if someone could help me.) What does this make the Jaguars logo? Would like to know what's left.

    One was Modernized, Jags Logo
    Not a Drastic Change: Vikes
    WTF Miami

    Jags is not a WTF and a drastic change since its a completely different logo, started from scratch

    Considering the fact that Mike Dee claimed we would be merging the old with the new, is it possible we could be the "Not the drastic change"? I will take that over "WTF" anyday.. :unsure:

    Wasn't there one that "hit it out of the park" as well? Thanks for the info.

    Gettin' a little nervous now.

    Barely Changed

    my predictions
    One Modernization: Vikes
    One Less Caricature/More Detailed: Jags
    Horrible: Us
    Barely Changed: Bucs

    Here's the article:

    http://www.purplejesusdiaries.com/2012-articles/november/new-uniforms-logos-for-vikings-in-2013.html


    Bucs: What changed? (confirmed in the article.)
    Jags: Modernization.
    Vikes: ?
    Dolphins: ?

    Looks like we're either one less caricature / more detailed, or "Oh wow...really, that's horrible!?"

    I wonder if the quote about it being beautiful but not looking like what it's intended to look like is referring to the prototype logo looking like a whale?

    I have a feeling thats what the jags logo is, just going off the more detail in the new logo, Plus I think if anything the New Dolphin logo will be less detail

    New Jags looks more like a caricature imo. You don't really see shading like that in any other NFL logo.

    I like the new Jags logo.how great would it be that since all Dolphins fans on here like the new Jags logo, if Ross is reading and decides to just use theirs as well but with Miami colors?

    Im a little worried. But it's just one guy's opinion. If the final Fins logo is similar to the "whale" one, I don think it will be in the category of OMGZ!!! AWFUL!!!

    My impression is that most negative reactions to the "whale" one were about the change than just looking at the logo objectively. imo. By objective, I mean a non-fan, not a 10000 word statistical analysis

    http://bit.ly/Vote4DolphinsLogo voting from 99designs. Honestly none of these designs are a logo I would want.

    This is the best looking dolphin, just needs work. Looks too much like a trout for me
    https://99designs.com/logo-design/c...p-miami-dolphins-nfl-team-191400/entries/1156

    but this is my favorite logo

    https://99designs.com/logo-design/c...lp-miami-dolphins-nfl-team-191400/entries/449

    this one is just terrible... can't believe it has 3rd right now
    https://99designs.com/logo-design/c...lp-miami-dolphins-nfl-team-191400/entries/880


    also everyone loves this logo

    and idk, im not feeling it. I think it could get outdated fast

    rereading this
    I will offer this, as my design opinion, out of the four logos, one of them, the modernization, is a home run. The "Oh wow, what the hell?" is in the category of what the Panthers changes were. The logo is beautiful, but it's just so different from the previous one, and quite frankly, it looks like something other than what it's intended to look like.

    One thing I will clarify, the "What changed?" one was the Buccaneers, so Bucs fans rest easy. I have to confirm that I just wasn't sent an old file, but I couldn't tell any changes.

    the "oh wow, what the hell?" could be the Jags. He says its in the category of the Panthers changes, which makes sense. The first thing that popped in my head was, wow thats different from their previous logo. He also said it was a good logo, which also makes sense. So maybe we are the one less caricature / more detailed or modernization one.

    I have so many theories, but at this time I think we are the Less Caricature/More Detailed. Makes sense, less cartoony, more Dolphin look to it

    Miami will prob release their logo and jersey at the same time, so April needs to come soon! I just want to see what it looks like now

    Given the temperature of these boards on the various logos and how the Jags logo is perceived, I think we can all agree on this, no?

    Based on the article, I'm reading it like this...


    What changed?: Bucs (confirmed)
    WTF?: Jaguars
    Less caricature/More detailed: Vikings
    Modernization: Miami

    Reasons:
    1. I really like the Jags new logo. However, The blue really stands out on an otherwise serious and cool looking logo. The contrasting with the black, tan, and white doesn't work so well. Those were my first thoughts when I saw it, even before reading the article.

    2. The Viking logo isn't the horns on the helmet. The Viking logo is a picture of a Viking with blonde braided hair, a long blonde mustache, and a blonde horned helmet. If you look at the logo, it's a caricature. And it has no real detail to it whatsoever. Looks like a sketch tbh. I think it perfectly fits the description.

    3. Miami's will be modernization. A. We also know that the logo was shown to older players who were said to have loved it (much like the guy in the article) B). Mike Dee confirmed it's not a drastic change, so WTF?! isn't likely. C). Mike Dee also mentioned modernization, while keeping with the history of the logo.

    Hopefully, we really did hit a home run.

    Also, I doubt we'll wait until April to see the new logo. New Era/Nike has to make merch for the upcoming season. Someone will leak it (for real this time).


    EDIT: Where did this logo come from? Has anyone taken credit for it online? Honestly, I think this might really be it... [​IMG]

    When it comes to that logo, it's about embracing a bit darker, richer type of color scheme, kinda cool cause it matches some imagery of the downtown lights of Miami, but I'm kinda ready for a bigger change so I'd be good with that, to me that would be a serious change, I'm also good with a real navy change, have always been, but I know most of y'all don't wanna go there, I like it, we have a lot of gear with it.

    I don't know where it came from, but really like that logo. It's more aggressive and detailed, but it still shares a close link to the old logos and is still obviously the Miami Dolphins when you look at it...ie, you're not going to say "the Miami Whales?".

    Tried to pull some strings to get a sneak peek....to no avail.

    I was "promised" that I would "LOVE" it. I am not sure what that means though. But the guy I talked to is pretty confident about it.
