    From Ben Volin's twitter:

    @BenVolinPBP: Helmet: All white, white facemask, new logo, thick aqua stripe from front to back with orange trim on both sides

    @BenVolinPBP: Jerseys: All white (or all aqua), with "Dolphins" on the chest below the collar (but not in cursive)

    @BenVolinPBP: Pants: White, thick aqua stripe down the sides, orange trim

    @BenVolinPBP: And either "Miami" or "Dolphins" on the tailbone, I forget which one

    So there you have it. ORANGE IS BACK as a trim color. Here is a mockup that has been since posted.

    Bro if you were a VIP member you could ask him personally in the Ben Volin thread. He has been great enough to answer questions in the thread. Thanks a lot Ben! We appreciate it!:hi5:

    Interesting, nothing mentioned about the blue shadow behind the numbers. Jerseys should look sharp!

    If the new uniforms look like this, then I honestly think they got it right: good combination of traditional and contemporary styling.

    Sounds like the shadow should be orange. Quite good as there was some concern creeping that orange was being phased out. :)

    I was really digging the aqua and navy stripe only on the helmet. So this is kind of a bummer.

    Hate to say it, but the cursive is actually a logo too. The fact that they changed the helmet logo means they will be changing the font logo as well. I am guessing it will be something blocky looking. Just based on the simplified logo.

    I think it looks smooth and sleek. Very aerodynamic as in fast. It's growing on me for sure.

    Why call me out for not being a VIP person, then make it sound like I tried to claim credit for the mockup even though I never did so? The pic clearly says it was created by JT and has phins.com all over it, and Volin posted it.

    All I am doing is posting news on finheaven, but you are trying to turn it into something personal which is not mature or nice. In all seriousness, bullying is not something that should be tolerated on this site.

    Really bullying? His mistake but I don't think he was trying to bully you lol. We see stuff like this taken from and used on both sites quite frequently.

    I do like the jerseys though if close to the mocks.

    Sounds good. I'm all good if those two posts were just mistakes on his part. Would rather concentrate on talk about the team.

    Side note: I hope the writing on the "back of the pants" isn't distracting. Can't think of any other team that does that.

    I don't think FFIC is bullying. He was just asking a question and Aqua and Orange got all defensive right away.

    Ben Volin is mistaken and being given old information.

    And JT's mockup is based off photos I've shown him. Ask him yourself. He's just doing me a favor and trying not to get me in trouble but at this point we've got ourselves some bad information going around.

    Feel free to post this up to Ben Volin.

    Crazy, you've been spot on thru out this whole thing so I have no reason to doubt you, but let me play devil's advocate for a moment and ask if it's possible that changes were made after you got your info, or perhaps what you saw was a perspective uniform and a final decision hadn't been made yet...

    Thankfully they did away with the hideous current blocky numbers. Counldnt stand the way the numbers looked on jerseys.

    I hate the idea of an all aqua look. Dark on dark uniforms is the one trend I dislike above all the recent changes around the league, and in college.

    But the younger crowd loves it, for some reason, so I sensed it was inevitable, especially with Nike involved.

    Luckily there don't appear to be many chances to use it, assuming we maintain a fleck of intellect and wear white at home, in our climate. Maybe a late season prime time game.

    A thick stripe on the helmet doesn't thrill me either. But none of this was going to work out in my favor. I understood that once Nike and Mike Dee were involved. What a combo. Pick your poison. It reminds me of that Monty Python line, "He died. He have heart attack and fell out of window onto exploding bomb and was killed in a shooting accident."

    The only possibility that pops up to me is that they went from design #1, then to design #2, then to design #1 again. Thats it.

    I SOOOO hope you are correct with this. The new look with the aqua with navy trim has me SOOO pumped. I also love the wider stripe. I think aqua with navy trim on the helmet and numbers with the same down the pants leg and just the orange around the sun burst will be the best looking uniforms in the league. Can't wait to see it.

    I don't think so. I think it makes him laugh, because in the logo super thread. Skape went from loving the logo, during the leaks. To NOT liking it when it was officially released. Because I too found humor in it as well.

    I hope the accents are in Navy as was reported, not this orange.

    Hopefully there is some creative use of blue. Especially for shoes, socks, sleeves, etc. I always thought blue should be there with the aqua to provide some depth and relief to the colorway.

    I believe that you made a comment over on thephins.com where your source had seen what had already been sent off to the manufactures for production, and it was for sure aqua with navy trim. Please tell me I read that correct. This thread is scaring me. That orange trim makes a huge difference in a BAD way. Please tell me it is going to be aqua with navy on draft day. I have been telling all my non dolphin fan friends that we were going to have some awesome uniforms. After seeing that orange trim I feel like a liar.

    I hate to be an ***, but there is navy...or certainly looks it...it the leaked photos from Nike and the shirt Odrick is wearing. The underbelly of the Dolphin looks blue to me.

    How is that considered "jaw dropping" or "futuristic" or even sweet.

    I like the new uniforms. However the new logo is wretched. It looks like a girls team. Horrible. I will never purchase anything with it.

    Guess I am in the minority I hate it. I already had freinds on FB or texting me laughing at our new logo. Ugh so annoyed but I never like big changes so gonna take me some time.
