    Still going huh?

    All I know is that this issue has caused me to go and spend almost $400 on gear with our current logo on it.
    Knowing they are about to screw it up was a huge buying influence.
    Maybe that was their plan all along!
    Stimulate sales by throwing out crazy logo designs and then they just tweak it a little.
    We'll see.

    I just bought the Nike Vapor II gloves to have something sweet with our current logo on it for that reason as well. Not that I think they will screw it up, but I wanted something nice with the current logo. The gloves are money!

    I have a ton of things with the current logo which I'll keep for nostalgic purposes as well, but I'm also not in the "oh my god!, they're going to screw it up" group.

    Good point and most already were.
    Sure sign change is coming.

    What's left over will probably be reduced more but teams only buy a certain amount of stock each year and they always run out of the most popular sizes.
    I had to act now.

    Really good deal on Authentic Personalized Jerseys right now on Miami Dolphins.com fan shop.
    $210 on sale from the regular $300.
    That's next so I'll be up to a $600 buying spree. :lol:

    Look I'll be welcoming if it's a true improvement.
    I'm just basing my "they're going to screw it up" based on what I've seen so far, especially the "Free Willy" "leaked" design.

    Nothing but a couple designs in that logo competition are near an improvement either and a large portion are downright awful so....... not real confident right now.

    I can understand this, but the ones out there now are well done, but all arbitrary. They are not working with the organization, and they are not Nike. I trust Nike and the organization to keep the culture and not to make foolish radical changes. Nike are professionals and you'd have to think they have some the best graphic designers on the market.

    My fingers are crossed, but the anticipation is killing me. Just release the g'd logo already. :lol:

    I have a couple questions for you section126:
    How well does this guy know your taste?
    Do you side more with traditional or something more radical?

    I ask because if he knows you very well and knows you prefer the traditional look, than that says something to me as more of a tweek ala the Jags. If you like something more radical, I would expect something like the patsies change.

    I'm just anxious to see it already.

    I like traditional, but with a modern feel. SO modern lines, but a definite nod to the past.

    I couldn't give you a link since I just glanced at it briefly a few weeks back, but I saw the website of the guy that came up with that logo, so I sincerely doubt that's it.

    Have you seen the University of MD uniforms. Nike's involvement is what has me nervous.

    OK, I haven't seen them until you made me google them. I like them....kind of. I have mixed feelings.

    But, what you have to consider is the organization makes the final decision. They give Nike a bunch of parameters and some creative freedom and ask for multiple mock ups. The organization makes the decision, not Nike.

    Nike has been known to go crazy on uniforms, but I think they understand they can't be that extravagant on logos. Logos are far too important for branding and marketing that they must be made to last per se, and definitely can't be radical.

    None of them are better then the "leaked" logo.

    Its funny but after seeing all these mocked logo makes me appreciate the leaked logo so much more.

    It represents all the buttholes we are going to rape next year. That or all the buttholes Dan has probably taken in his life.

    Seriously...

    It also makes people think they actually get a say in the logo. "Maybe if the number 1 logo gets enough votes the Dolphins will consider it!". So people go to the website maybe every day to vote, while they're there they may see a headline they like and read an article or two. The longer they are on the site the more ad revenue the paper makes which keeps them in business. Some of the things people ask on this board really boggle my mind.

    Actually looking at most of those draw ups from fans, I am happy they ARENT letting the fans vote on the new logo. It'd end up looking like a dolfanTank with a blow hole shooting out rockets.
