    Check this out . . .

    [​IMG]

    Of course this is from the mid-90's, but imagine how much worse it would be with the drop shadows we currently employ on our numbers.

    FYI, this is not a prototype or anything, it is a fashion jersey from the mid to late 1990's (first Marino I have seen, but the NFL must have had a line of these because I remember Farve and Aikman for sure). It is from an ebay auction (http://cgi.ebay.com/Miami-Dolphins-...goryZ24962QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdiewItem)

    All together now . . . WOW HOW UGLY!

    I actually think its somewhat cool, if it were updated a bit.

    Has potential.

    But I love the traditional aqua and orange. No jersey like it in pro sports.

    i think i'd have to put that jersey on and see how it looks on me before i can decide whether or not it's ugly,and obviously whether i'd wear it or not.

    I would like to see the Dolphins get rid of the drop shadow numbers and go back to the old school numbers. I think some type of big change would be a good thing but that jersey just don't look right.

    Graphically speaking, you can get wild with the fins jerseys with the addition of black.
    Even though the dark, navy blue is pretty much used as a black to our color palette.

    A little irrelevant but I dislike the white on white jerseys.
    They look too angelic. Not to mention they do not flaunt the fresh team colors.
    It is as if they were ashamed last year, and wanted to hide that they were Dolphins.
    Damn Cam!

    I think the number style for the Pats jerseys are cool. If we had something like that in our colors, it might be pretty cool.

    well.... it's good to know that the Fins will never wear black in the Miami sun because those things are ugly.

    well i agree with you on this djfinfan I think if you took the orange stripes off the arms and around the numbers and just a a wider aqua strip it would look better.

    by the way i love helment in your avatar that helmet would great with the orange or white jerseys.

    Me too. Most of my t-shirts as a kid were dolphins logos on a black shirt. Personally I love how the colors look on black.

    its pretty cool for a fashion statement, but our players would die wearing black jerseys in the florida heat.

    waiit a miute i thought the reason for the pratice bubble was so they could practice in a nice airconditioned atmosphere. what about putting cooling machines on the sidelines the nfl does it with heaters when it gets cold so why not put cooling machiines on the sidelines ?

    Per Miami Dolphins, the official NFL approved colors of the Miami Dolphins uniforms are as follows:
    Aqua
    Coral
    White
    Navy Blue (shadowing)

    Please note: There is no TEAL anywhere, thats Jacksonville. There is no black, that would be Atlanta Falcons, etc. Coral is a shade of orange...or so I'm told.
    Anyway, I got this information directly from the Miami Dolphins about 3 years ago.
    As for me...I like the uni's how they are. If you want a change, cheer for a different team...they have different uniforms. hehe

    I'm sure if Miami wanted a black jersey it could happen.

    I don't know what is teal and what is Aqua but I do know the older uniforms were a lighter blue...which was aqua. Now they have a darker color, maybe that is still aqua?

    As for the "cheer for another team" statement, thats stupid. Uniforms change and fans can discuss it.

    That looks awful. I don't think black meshes with our colors at all. I'm perfectly content with the white.

    I don't know about the black! But hink a new look wouldn't hurt the fins have basically had the same old look, why not try a new theme? it's worked for alot of teams... EX: bucks, broncos, titans, pats ect...

    dbdb...relax chief...just mere jibes into an offseason full of lore.
    As for back when we were kids watching and the colors....not sure. Maybe back then the official colors were different in some form or fashion. I only asked a few years ago as it was questioned on this board (back when AJ had it running tip top) so I thought it might clear up any confusion.
    Remember what John Lennon says "Imagine....."
