    Is it possible that because the throwbacks are an "existing" set, that they don't need the full advance time span....

    I did think of that and that could be possible. That’s probably best case scenario as we move closer to the offseason.

    This is what I'm hoping for. The Bills have some of the cleanest uniforms in the league.

    No. You're still missing the logistical side of making the change. The change just isn't for the team. It's also for all the merchandise as well as promotional materials and even all the signs in the stadium. It's a huge undertaking to have to rebrand a company and that is exactly what changing the logo is, a rebrand.

    I get that, but since throwback merchandise already exists, things like templates, approved color pallets, etc. don't have to be done from scratch...

    That is miniscule progress in regards to a rebranding.

    Love the throwbacks. Any dolphins gear I buy from now on has to be throwback. Im still stuck with the old logo on my license plate though, drives me crazy.

    When did we find out about the current uni? Wasn't I'd during the off-season? I mean the process could have already started. None of us know.

    As it's been pointed out already. The Titans are getting new uniforms for next year and it was filed back in March of this year. If any other teams were making changes we would have known by now.

    If anything is being planned for new uniforms for the Dolphins it won't happen until 2019.

    I've been saying for years that what we ought to have done was brought back the team's 70s uniforms, but with one concession: You know how the artwork of the Dolphin on the old logo looks like it was stamped by industrial machinery? I'd just touch that up to look a little cleaner / smoother, and call it a day.

    But I'm really skeptical of us getting an updated uniform based on the throwbacks. I don't trust Nike to do anything right. What they've done to college football uniforms is, in my opinion, an embarrassment to sport. Tuning in on a Saturday afternoon and seeing these hideous abominations with terrible contrast, ugly colors, or weird ornamentation like camouflage (why?), I honestly have to wonder who the hell designs this crap.

    I point to the new Jaguars or Bucs uniforms as an example of why I want the pure throwbacks and not any Nike update. The guy at Nike who designs the hideous uniforms obviously gets more creative with Florida teams than he does with everyone else. I want no part of that. No part of it.

    Speaking of throwbacks, I saw the Falcons in their a few weeks back and I dont know why they ever changed them.

    We have the weakest looking colors in the entire NFL. We need to go back to the colors of the early 70's but with a whole new logo.

    I think the throwback uniform is intimidating tbh. Our colors are the most unique in all of sports.

    I blame Mike Dee for our current logo and uniforms.

    He not only signed off on the design but he ended up leaving us high and dry for the San Diego Padres job shortly after.

    Amazing how he was given so much power. Granted he was CEO at the time but, IMO, he never deserved such an honor as to shape the future look of the franchise.

    Dee was in charge of marketing at the time so only Ross could have.

    Or he just lets his business people do their jobs but either way you slice it it still begs the question how involved was he in this decision?

    Count me in as someone who prefers the new logo to the old. Imagine if we had the new logo for years and then we switched to the cartoon dolphin with a helmet on its head. It would be mocked beyond words.

    I want the 70's uniform design it has that old school football to it, the Jets kinda captured it. But I want the Marino shiny 80's color a bit garish, but its what i was fed on. With the new Dolphins logo. Would settle for the larger dolphin logo in the sunburst as an alternate. Also no more aqua pants with white jerseys, I want all aqua or all white. The all white gives them a stormtrooper look at home, we need to embrace the aqua that is really our color rush

    Why not leave the '66 uniforms as throwbacks? The Fins can wear them 2 or 3 times per year at home and just leave the current uniforms alone. I may be in the minority but an update was greatly needed, in my opinion plus they sell jerseys whenever you change uniforms. If that's not good enough then wear the throwbacks on the road as well, if that's permitted 2 or 3 times per year but I doubt that option is on the table. Just stating my opinion..........Fins Up!!!!!!

    Even if they decide to go "full throwback" for good, there will still be some tweaks and differences here and there. You know it won't be perfect.

    If not, I'd almost be ok with keeping the current logo and just darkening the aqua a shade, adding stripes to the sleeves, and going back to a more blocky font for the numbers. I understand they wanted a sleek look, but we lost some intimidation factor for sure. Losing seasons don't help the cause.

    Sort of wish the Pats were wearing their throwbacks.

    Agreed. It’s the stripes, combined with the shade of aqua. Also, I love the grey face masks and black cleats

    The reason they look good is the darker aqua and more orange in the uniform. I would honestly be OK with the uniforms having the new logo and old color scheme and make the stoke on the shoulder numbers smaller.
