    Wow, these are all hideous. I'm shockingly disappointed. I haven't seen as poor a presentation of a sports team ever before. I think this might be worse than New Orleans naming their team the Pelicans. Those logos are fugly.

    Well these were submitted by the public, and I don't know what the Dolphin's marketing people will come up with. You never are going to make everyone happy. I think the actual logo will be presented sometime around the NFL draft during the end of April. I think this helmet would go great if we go back to the color uniforms Dan Marino wore in his early days with team. I just would make the eye look a little different and tougher looking.

    #4 is nice....but I am not sure how you would get all that on the helmet? I like the #4 logo but would leave the lettering off.

    If the Dolphins used any of those designs, I would never buy another piece of NFL merchandise ever again.

    I submitted the one in my sig and the one in my avatar but they weren't selected. I think they probably thought they were too close to the leaked logo and the stadium logo to be entered into the contest. Oh well.

    I really wish I knew about contests like this before they end. Just like the one on 99designs. I would have entered mine for sure.

    99designs contest was much better.

    Compared to these entries, the leaked logo looks like a Da Vinci painting...

    NONE of these are as good as our current logo. I would be sorely dissapointed if our new logo turned out to be ANY of them.

    This is a fan contest from the Miami Herald, not the Dolphins. We can safely say that none of these will be the new logo

    I'm not voting for any of them b/c I don't like any. I swear if the Dolphins use of those I'll **** myself.

    I like the Pelicans new logo. The nickname Pelicans means something to the New Orleans area so I don't think it's as horrific as you think.

    i agree .... if 7 would have had the gray helmet with the blue or white face mask it would have been hands down the best on. #7 with #10 helmet. i would be ok with that.

    I mainly like the colors of #8....we had these colors during Marino's early years...then they started to make the aqua too green or teal colored....aqua is more of a blue color than a green color. I know that no matter what they come up with, some people are going to hate the design/logo.

    I wish you had known too DS ... you've got talent and your logos are awesome. But if you entered one of your designs into that contest, it might have been a runaway winner so fast they wouldn't have gotten much controversy. :)

    I still like Skapephin's lighter one the best but I really do like the one posted above, #8.

    Also 5 is okay, I like the idea of incorporating the letter + dolphin

    Seriously? Those are the ones they went with? Those are all completely ****ing awful.

    If a newspaper can't even pick a half decent submission to vote on, what makes you think the clowns in the Dolphins front office will get it right?

    At least it's some valuable information. I never understand why fans are upset at our logo, our great classy traditional logo. Now I'll never have to ask again, if those logos are representative of current taste. Jesus smawillickers.

    Other than #1, I'm not sure you could jigsaw piece a competent logo from that crop even if you took the least offensive segments of each one. Blank adjacent to blank is the only escape. In fact, that should have been an option, number 11, to vote for the white spaces between the hideous logos.

    This has to be the work of Mike Dee. I've read that the Dolphins infiltrate message boards with shills. I'm not among them, BTW. Not sure why I flunked the test. Anyway, Dee must have monopolized every entree in that Herald contest, so even his blind ballerina dolphin with the upturned toes won't seem so objectionable.

    And here I was just thinking earlier that the leaked logo was starting to sound better and better with all the ****ty alternatives I'm seeing put forth. I'm starting to feel like I'll simply breath a sigh of relief if the leak turns out to be real.

    great classy traditional logo?

    I hope you are referring to the pre-97 logo, because the current logo is a bastardized, cartoon version of the "great, classy, traditional logo" you reference.

    BTW, did Mike Dee spit in your Cheerios? You seem to have an unhealthy obsession with him.

    I liked the Jorge Grillo one the best, but would like to see the half sun in it with shimmering aqua colored water streaks rolling off the Dolphin to simulate he's coming out from the depths, would also love to see a natural grey colored version of it.

    My 2nd favorite was the Earl Dixon one, but the black shadow on the Dolphin is a distraction and not sure it would look well on a helmet.

    I know a logo is the least of our problems but seriously if any of those turn out to be our new logo I might stop watching football. I would rather the logo that was leaked or keep the one we currently have and I despise both. If it was up to me I'd bring back the 70's logo or just use the M thats on the helmet of the dolphin with some throwback uniforms. I hope and pray the organization can come up with something better than these herald entries.

    Yeah, I agree in part, but I'm sure they're doing it to increase their sales in merchandise. The Bills and Patriots switched their logo's because some psychologists felt that their logo's weren't intimidating enough to opposing teams and may have contributed to all their losing seasons. I know its a weird theroy, but for years the Patriots and Bill were the laughing stock of the league.

    I appreciate all the efforts, but imo none are better than the current logo.
